Sam Phillips: The Man Who Invented Rock 'n' Roll is the title of the new book that was released more than a week ago from Peter Guralnick. At the Country Music Hall of Fame and
Museum in Nashville, Tennessee, there is an exhibition about the life and work of Phillips. And begin December, there is the release of the limited edition vinyl boxset of 'Sam
Phillips: The Man Who Invented Rock 'n' Roll', a 55-track companion to Peter Guralnick's biography of the same name, and a personal, idiosyncratic survey of one of the most
important bodies of work in recording history.

The 3LP set features songs hand-selected by Guralnick, who also wrote an exclusive track-by-track essay for the release. Mostly spanning the years 1950-1961, the set shines a
light on Phillips' unique approach to recording, his cosmic genius, and revolutionary role in the evolution of blues, country, R&B, gospel and the birth of rock 'n' roll.

Featuring big hits, near misses, and never-even-close tracks by Elvis Presley, Howlin' Wolf, Johnny Cash, B.B. King, Jerry Lee Lewis, Charlie Rich, Carl Perkins, Roy Orbison, and
scores of other singular artists, Sam Phillips: The Man Who Invented Rock 'N' Roll delivers, in his own words, "individualism in the extreme."

Every track on this collection celebrates, whether intentionally or not, the diversity and beauty and rawness, the grandness and intimacy and comic and tragic drama of the human

Sam Phillips: The Man Who Invented Rock ‘n’ Roll was curated by Peter Guralnick ( Last Train to Memphis: The Rise of Elvis Presley) and accompanies his landmark Sam
Phillips biography of the same title.  These tracks are a hand-picked selection of Sam Phillips productions that illustrate Phillips’ unique (sounds and sense) approach to recording
and his cosmic genius.  A celebration of the period (1950 - 1961) in which Sam played a revolutionary role in the music business, this collection includes big hits, near misses and
never-was tracks that encompass blues, country, gospel, r&b,  and the birth of rock & roll.
