Released:
Label: Vanguard Records
Beyond The Sun is Chris Isaak's loving tribute to Sun Records. The majority of the selections can be traced back to the label's icons: Elvis, Jerry Lee, The Man in Black, Carl Perkins and Roy Orbison. This is a bit of a bummer; it would've been cool had he dug deeper into the catalog, maybe cover a track or two from Charlie Feathers or the great Sonny Burgess. Nevertheless, Isaak proves to be a skilled rockabilly singer. His boyish, quivering tenor cracks and weeps in all the right places. Plus, the production is sufficiently vintage as to not to make the tunes sound like karaoke novelty.
