BILLY EMERSON : RED HOT - THE SUN YEARS CD
Sam Phillips said "Billy Emerson wrote such great songs. He was one of the very best". Even if you don't know of Billy Emerson, you've probably heard songs. His Red Hot was recorded by Billy Lee Riley, Ronnie Hawkins, Bob Luman, Sam The Sham, Robert Gordon and many others, and his When It Rains It Pours is best known through Elvis Presley's cover version.
Billy "The Kid" Emerson's own 1950s recordings are instantly recognisable. This CD gathers together all of his recordings for the Sun, Vee-Jay and Chess and Mad labels.
