The Million Dollar Quartet: Jerry Lee, Carl, Elvis & Johnny
December 4, 1956, was a day in history and serendipity! Author Stephen Miller chronicles the events that led four of the most influential musicians and singers of the mid-1950s to meet at the famed Sun Records in Memphis, Tennessee, in a spontaneous session. That day, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley, and Johnny Cash began playing and singing music “for fun.” Sam Phillips recorded their music-making, but the tapes disappeared from history while each of the musicians pursued an individual career. The tapes resurfaced in the 1970s, amid much legal wrangling and were eventually released to the delight of the public.
