Offered is a 1956 Jackie Earls and The Jimbos SUN 240 45 RPM single "Slow Down" / "A Fool for Lovin' You". The record is a Marion Keisker (Sun Records) FILE COPY. In 1955, Earls recorded a demo of the B-side on this record at Sam Phillips' Memphis Recording service, "A Fool For Lovin' You" (written by Earls himself). His next recording session for Phillips resulted in the songs "Slow Down" and "Hey Jim". Phillips released "Slow Down" on Sun Records under the name Jack Earls & the Jimbos, and the song became a regional hit, though Earls was unable to tour behind the record due to family obligations. Though he faded into obscurity, he is considered a rockabilly pioneer. The record presents in stunning unplayed MINT condition with its original SUN brown paper sleeve.

Marion Keisker 78 and 45 Records File Copy Collection - Sun Records Office Manager

Marion Keisker, of course, is the office manager of The Memphis Recording Service and Sun Records for Sam Phillips in the 1950s. She was the very woman who was present the day in 1953 that a young singer named Elvis Presley walked into the Memphis Recording Service and recorded his first song. Marion was on hand for that and many other seminal moments in the story of Elvis Presley and the history of Rock and Roll. This collection represents her "file copy" examples of many of the most important records Sam Phillips ever recorded at Sun Records. We rarely employ the term "MINT" when describing collectibles of any kind, but we found ourselves utilizing that condition designation repeatedly while describing these records. The vast majority of them appear to have been brought home by Marion and then NEVER played or handled much at all.
