Charlie Rich was the most sophisticated of the fifties Sun artists. In fact, Sam Phillips called him "the most talented musician I ever worked with" which says a lot. A fantastic composer and arranger, Rich was also a fine piano player and deeply soulful singer. His early recordings are far removed from the raucous, rebelious records of Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis. Incorporating a wide range of styles (including country, gospel, blues and rock and roll) Rich's songs are usually thoughtful, moving and extremely beautiful. A wonderful talent and consumate performer in every sense, he conquered the tearful ballad in a manner only the likes of Roy Orbison and the Everly Brothers could match.

Charlie Rich was one of those artists who was difficult to categorise. A consummate jazz pianist comfortable in a late night setting, a songwriter who shaped unusual songs sometimes with a country bent - Jerry Lee was to benefit from his marvellous "I'm leaving it all up to you" - and an occasional rocker and blues man. Even when he found fame in later days with more countrypolitan material one never felt that this was representative of the whole Charlie Rich. Certainly he was anything but your typical Sun rockabilly wannabe. The mini-essay below paints the Sun background and fits him into the overall picture.

To say the Sun label attracted and in most cases retained, at least for the key period in the growth of rockabilly, a high level of rock'n'roll talent is an understatement of the highest order. The talent at Sun in its heyday was truly staggering. If I can draw an analogy to the way UK football is organised and put the artists who spent time there into divisions then in the Premier division would be Elvis, Jerry Lee and Johnny Cash. undoubted superstars all. OK, Sam did let Elvis go but he used to argue that this gave him funding to develop other artists. Both Jerry and Johnny produced much of their quality material whilst at Sun - Cash's output for the label is still under appreciated. Moving down to the Championship we would see Carl Perkins, to many people the epitome of rockabilly, Charlie Rich and Roy Orbison. Both of the latter pairing were to go on to much greater fame with subsequent labels and, arguably, should be promoted to superstar rating over their entire careers. However Rich's Sun output shouldn't be ignored. In my view, "Who will the next fool be" and "Lonely Weekends" have had lasting appeal and, to me, match anything he was to go on to record.
