Happy Birthday Sam Phillips...hope wherever you are, you will be "Moanin' at Midnight." Never heard of Sam? How about Elvis, Carl Perkins, Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ike Turner, Howlin Wolf or BB King? Sam founded Sun Records in Memphis and was responsible for the career starts of all those artists, as well as many more. Blues, rock-a-billy, rock and country were all enriched because of the vision of Sam Phillips.
While a tune from Elvis might be expected, instead let's have a taste of Howlin Wolf doing "Shake It For Me" from 1964.
