Producer/engineer/guitarist Roland Janes (pictured at right with Jon Hornyak, senior executive director of the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences, Memphis chapter, and whose credits include Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison and Charlie Rich) was honored by the chapter with four plaques at Sam Phillips Recording Services (Memphis), where he is studio manager and engineer. Three plaques were for his guitar work on Sun classics “Great Balls of Fire,” “Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On,” and Bill Justis' “Raunchy” (all Grammy Hall of Fame recordings) and a fourth for engineering the Grammy-nominated album Electric Blue Watermelon by the North Mississippi Allstars. In addition, Janes also ran recording facility Sonic in the 1960s and '70s.
