September 12, 2017 Records of the Day

Johnny Cash’s first attempt to impress Sun Records’ owner Sam Phillips was “Hey Porter,” but the legendary man who discovered Elvis put thumbs down on Johnny’s first try. Cash went home and wrote “Cry, Cry, Cry.” That did the trick. Sun Records released the single in 1955 with “Hey Porter” on the flip-side. The original 45 can get you $150.00 today. An original copy on a 78 is worth up to $200.00.
