Storyline

A recreation from one of the world's greatest jam sessions. On December 4th, 1956 Carl Perkins' career was flying high from his hit "Blue Suede Shoes." New to the scene, Jerry Lee Lewis is brought in to work on a new song with Perkins. Then, low and behold, super star Elvis Presley and country music legend Johnny Cash stop by the studio for a visit. The songs they sang on that epic day became the concept for Million Dollar Quartet, a fun, inventive retelling of their impromptu recording session.

Trivia

Johnny Cash sits on his bed in episode 3 of season 1, and another army officer invites him to watch a film on Folsom Prison. Following the denial of the offer, Johnny Cash ad-libs lyrics about Folsom Prison. Later in his career as a singer, Johnny Cash recorded a song called "Folsom Prison Blues." See more »

Crazy Credits

John Holiday who portrays Carl Perkins in Fox's "Walk the Line", is back in Cash's band as Luther Perkins in "Sun Records". Played live guitar in both! Now that is a crazy credit. See more »

nice way to look at rock'n'roll's beginnings
7 April 2017 | by davidkilchoerSee all my reviews

it appears that many people think this is a show about Elvis, even thou it's called "Sun Records". Well, surprise: It's about sun records and its founder Sam Philipps. And it's not about Elvis. Nor Johnny Cash. Or Jerry Lee Lewis. It also is not about Michael Jackson or Lady Gaga. It's called Sun Records, remember? If you feel betrayed, I figure it's your own fault - for not reading the series' title. whoops, huh.

As such, I find it the perfect way to portray the beginnings of rock'n'roll since sun records played a main part in that. The playing is very decent, the narratology works rather well.

Thank you for giving us this mini series.
