Tapping into a side of the Sun catalog that seldom -- if ever -- comes up for air, this brings together 32 tracks combed from the issued and unissued sides of the vaults to present a wider and clearer picture of just about every type of gospel music Sam Phillips recorded back in the day. From the jam-session ramblings of Elvis, Jerry Lee, and Carl Perkins on "Just a Little Talk With Jesus," to the black gospel tradition of the Jones Brothers on "Gospel Train" and "Amazing Grace," to the country gospel of Howard Serratt ("Troublesome Waters") and Cast King with the Miller Sisters (a beautiful alternate take of "Can't Find Time to Pray"), this set covers all of Sun's stylistic quirks, showing that there was always time for a gospel tune, sometimes right smack dab in the middle of a rock & roll session (Jerry Lee's "When the Saints Go Marching In"). The crowning touch is a recitation from Sam Phillips himself, entitled "Would Anybody Care?," a true tear jerker by any measure. One of the most interesting Sun collections you're likely to come across.
