Johnny Cash had a style and sound all his own for which he became recognized and renowned. In 1954, Johnny, along with his band mates in the Tennessee Two, Luther Perkins and Marshall Grant, wrote “Hey Porter.” The song is written from the perspective of a man just having returned from overseas who is so excited to be taking the train ride home, he continually asks the porter for updates. This was the first recording for Johnny Cash and the Tennessee Two at Sun Studios and was released as Sun 221 with “Cry! Cry! Cry!” on side B in May 1955. Johnny Cash recorded with Sun Records in the Sun Recording Studio in Memphis from 1954 until his move to Columbia Records in mid-1958. Offered is a handsomely framed display featuring a signed Sun Records early promotional photo of Johnny Cash, a Sun 45 RPM single of #221 “Hey Porter” and a silver-toned plaque. This visual combo with strong signature will make an ideal display and tribute to the “Man in Black.” The framed display measures 14 by 20 inches (35.56 x 50.8 cm) and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

The framed display presents with several minor scuffs and scratches to the frame, the promotional photo with bold blue ink signature are in excellent condition overall and the Sun record is in excellent condition with some typical wear from age to the label. Excellent to Mint condition.
