Sun Records has been the name for three 20th century record labels.
The first "Sun Records" were single-sided disc records put out by the
Crystalate Gramophone Record Manufacturing Company Ltd of Kent, England,
from about 1905 to 1910. (The same company would later produce records under
the name Imperial).
The second "Sun Records" was produced by the Sun Record Company of Toronto,
Canada in the early 1920s. Many or all of the masters pressed were leased
from the USA based Okeh Records.
The third and most famous "Sun Records" was based in Memphis, Tennessee
starting in the 1950. Founded by Sam Phillips, Sun Records was known for
giving notable musicians such as Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee
Lewis, and Johnny Cash their first recording contracts and helping to launch
their careers. The music of many Sun Records musicians helped lay part of
the foundation of modern popular music and rock and roll and influenced many
younger musicians, particularly the Beatles.
