Sounds Of The City - Memphis
If you've ever wanted to take a road trip through musical history but can't seem to find the time or the money, you can join us each month for Sounds of the City in the Warner Sound App on Spotify.
This December, we're cruising through Memphis, Tennessee, a veritable hot bed of rhythm & blues & soul, with a dash of country and rockabilly, and the very first seedlings of rock-n-roll. Drop by Beale Street, "Home of Blues," to hear from early blues legends like Memphis Minnie, B.B, King, and Rosco Gordon. Stop in at Stax Records where Otis and Aretha delivered super-charged shots of soul and Sun Studios where Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins jammed with Elvis Presley. Catch up with The King at Graceland. And swing by Ardent Studios for some early alt-rock from big names like R.E.M., The Replacements, and the Afghan Whigs.It's all happening here.
