Keep an eye open for a documentary on the history of Sun Records on PBS or whatever other public TV channels you might get. It starts out rather slow but it is very good if taken in full context.

It was really cool seeing Paul McCartney's recording style - "stop playing around, this is serious". Robert Plant and Jimmy Page were also very interesting to watch. To see artists worth tons of money show up at Sun's little studio in Nashville out of respect says a lot about these people. This really is a "sleeper" documentary. Anyone with any interest in making music should see this. Hopefully Netflix will pick it up.

I remember walking into the Palomino club in North Hollywood, Ca. by myself early one off evening. the place was pretty deserted and I sat down by the front of the stage to have a brewski and asked the waitress who was coming on., She said, Jerry Lee Lewis, He came on stage in a pair of red cowboy boots and proceeded to get with the program. I spent the next couple of hours about five feet away from a heck of a lot of good music.
