PROBABLY SUN RECORDING STUDIO 706 UNION AVENUE, MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE STUDIO SESSION: UNKNOWN DATE DECEMBER 1956 STUDIO HOURS: UNKNOWN PRODUCER AND RECORDING ENGINEER – SAM PHILLIPS
Jackson, Tennessee, has been the home for several Tennessee rockabilly musicians, most notable Carl Perkins. Local record companies, e.g. Jaxon and Lu Records recorded local artists just as Kenny Parchman, Curtis Hobock, Carl Mann and others, and a young Ramsey Kearney, who also was part of the Jackson music scene and recorded for Jaxon Records. Coincidence or not, some of the artists that Jimmy Martin featured on Jaxon had already been turned down by Sun Records. Ramsey Kearney, the first vocalist with the Martin Combo, had already been mixed by Sun with good cause.
