Class of '55: Memphis Rock & Roll Homecoming Review

by Steve Huey

Class of '55: Memphis Rock 'n' Roll Homecoming brings Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison, and Carl Perkins -- all members of the Sun Records stable during its heyday -- together for an all-star recording session, which finds the quartet tackling a mixture of oldies and new material. Highlights include renditions of Perkins' "Birth of Rock and Roll," "Sixteen Candles," Waylon Jennings' "Waymore's Blues," Cash's "I Will Rock and Roll With You," and John Fogerty's "Big Train (From Memphis)."
