Sun records Fall Newsletter


Greetings friends, fans & rock & roll family!

Autumn is in full swing here in Nashville and that means it's time for change. The leaves are changing and the weather
is getting colder, but that doesn't mean you have to! Let us warm you up with some Sun Records news.

While we may have been quiet, a lot has been happening over the past few months. One thing we're very excited
about is that Sun Records recently signed an agreement with Grooveshark, a music streaming service. The entire Sun
Records music catalog is now available to listen to via Grooveshark! Also, Grooveshark is running a remix promotion,
partnered with Mercedes Benz. They are asking for fans to pick 8 songs out of the 12 options to be remixed, two of
which are Johnny Cash’s “I Walk the Line” and “Cry! Cry! Cry!” You can vote for the songs you’d like to hear remixed, here.

In licensing news, “Flying Saucers Rock & Roll” as performed by Billy Riley and His Little Green Men was used in the
Universal Pictures movie “Paul”, directed by Greg Mottola, starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Also noteworthy,
“Chapel Of Love” as performed by The Dixie Cups was used as background music in the re-make of the motion picture
Arthur, starring Russell Brand. It’s not only the music that is getting a lot of licensing attention, as the use of Sun
Records’ iconic logo continues to be used on various merchandise that is both marketed by Sun Record Company and
its’ licensees. In the Universal Pictures movie “Hop”, the main character (James Marsden) wears a Sun T-shirt.

On a more somber note, last month marked the anniversary of a great loss, not only to the Sun Records family, but
the entire rock & roll community as well.

On October 7th 2009, Sun Records President, Shelby Singleton, died of cancer at the age of 77. He is best known for
his purchase of Sun Records in 1969 and subsequent marketing of the label and its legacy.

However, many don't realize that before his purchase of Sun Records, Shelby made a name for himself at Mercury
Records. There he worked closely with country artists, as well as some rhythm and blues acts including Brook Benton,
Clyde McPhatter, Dinah Washington, and even James Brown. One of Shelby's biggest achievements came when he
produced "Harper Valley P.T.A." The song, written by Tom T. Hall, became a No. 1 pop and country hit on Shelby's
Plantation label in 1968, turning Jeannie C. Riley into an overnight sensation.

"Shelby was the all-around record man," said Jerry Kennedy, friend and protégé of Shelby. "He was a producer, a
marketing guy, a merchandising guy, a publisher and a promoter. He did it all, and he was doing it right up until the end."
