Get Rhythm, Johnny Cash and The Tennessee Two (1956) Originally calling themselves Johnny Cash and The Tennessee Three, Sun Records owner Sam Phillips suggested they go with The Tennessee Two after steel guitarist A.W. ‘Red’ Kernodle became too nervous to play and left the studio, leaving Luther Perkins (Fender electric guitar) and Marshall Grant (upright bass). By 1953 drummer W.S. Holland joined the band, and they eventually became The Tennessee Three again.

You Can’t Make Me Doubt My Baby, Bunker Hill (1963) In the late 1950s David Walker joined a traditional gospel group, the Sensational Wonders, who would later become The Mighty Clouds of Joy. Walker used the pseudonym Bunker Hill to avoid conflict of interest trouble but they found out anyway and Walker was booted. As Bunker Hill, Walker also recorded with Link Wray (with brother and manager Vernon Wray).
