Sun Records was founded in 1952 by Sam Phillips in Memphis, Tennessee. The label was known for giving musicians such as Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Roy Orbison and Johnny Cash their first recording contracts and helping to launch their careers. 
In 1969, producer Shelby Singleton purchased the Sun label from Phillips and merged his operations into Sun International Corporation. 
The British versions of the Sun label date from this reissue period. In 1977, reissue specialists Charly Records picked up the rights to Sun.
