Sonny Burgess
The Arkansas Wild Man

The Arkansas Wild Man




Some of the wildest rockn’roll ever made for the Sun label from the late 1950s.

A true Rockabilly original, singer/guitarist Sonny Burgess remains one of Sun Records’ leading lights.  One of handful of rockers to find a new audience in Europe in the 1970s and 80s and with a recording career spanning nearly 60 years (his most recent album, Live At Sun Studios, was released in 2012) this 25-track compilation brings together the best of Burgess’ mid-to-late-50s cuts for the label including fan favourites 'We Wanna Boogie’ and 'Red Headed Woman’.  In between hosting a weekly radio show in Jonesboro, AK, the Arkansas wild man continues to tour.
