This is absolute must have edition and what makes it different from others is the fact that 90% of songs featured here come from older generation master tapes that were hidden in Sam Phillips vaults and were not available before.
Sound is simply amazing, specially when compared to 50's masters or 'Sunrise'.

This is by far the best release of Sun material around, surpassing all previous efforts by the mere quality of the sound restoration. Other releases might have been more complete, but listening to "Elvis at Sun" proves more revelatory than all, even fifty years after date.
Groundbreaking, visionary, indispensable.

I love this cd. If I close my eyes I'm transported back to the little Sun studio where history was being made. These early recordings sound uninhibited and experimental and the enjoyment of the musicians is evident. Bill's bass and Scotty's guitar playing create a unique backing sound. I love 'You're a Heartbreaker' and 'Mystery Train'. Some of the songs are 'in progress' others are as they were released. The booklet with the cd contains information about the songs and it was written by Ernst Jorgensen who knows a thing or two. Also there's a nice piece written by Sam Phillips' son Knox. There are some songs that I have heard referred to in the many books I have read but I hadn't come across them on any of the other cds I have e.g Harbor Lights, Milkcow Blues, Good Rockin' Tonight. Others might be on cds you already have e.g. Trying to get to you, I forgot to remember to forget (wonderful lyrics)and Baby Let's Play House. But for the unique moment in history that this cd encapsulates it's an essential addition to any Elvis collection.

Having read earlier reviews, I made sure that I bought the Audio CD version, which is 30p more !

I have versions of the Elvis Sun Collection on both vinyl and cassette tape from long ago.

This CD version seems very clean and pure, with the instrumentals in particular coming across very well, almost as though you are in the recording studio - amazing since we are talking about more than 50 years ago !

My CD has 19 tracks on it and interesting 'liner notes'.

A bargain at this price and a piece of music history - what more could anyone want.

I was born the day Jailhouse Rock was released in the UK, so I was bought up listening to Elvis, I went through my teenage years with Deep Purple and Elvis in my record collection. I have lots of Elvis records then CD's but this is one of my favourites, I'm disabled now so can't get abour alot, but when I got this I have a cd player that plays a stack so I just left it in cos I loved it so very much. The young Elvis was the very best, its even converted my husband into an Elvis fan, until he heard this he couldn't really see why I liked him so much, he said he was OK now he thinks he's great. WOW.

Birth place of a fusion, as Elvis' early years are recorded in the biog, a mixture of being under and over whelmed as the singer struggled to break free from the shackles of a blanket Biblical conformity- "it don't move me, let's get real gone, and then he put some shuffle into the delivery into Milk Cow Blues. So rock and roll was engaged in.

Building up on the template laid down in the segregated shacks, he unleashed a Reichian orgone revolution, as the waves of sexual repression finally broke free as the South arose again, in a different way, erupting in "Mystery Train," "That's alright Mamma," and "Good Rockin' Tonight". Musical cuts creating the stirrings of a frenzy that was to change the social character of the world.

Here stripped down to a voice and the beat rhythm backing this is musical on a very basic level, all the effects erased in the numerous RCA recordings, with a few additions not on the Sun LP.

After this, he still had to navigate the Southern repressives at Nashville, but slowly the euphoria spread along the airwaves as teenagers became born. Well worth a revisitation as the birthplace of everything that came next, a snapshot when rock was still locked into a constant roll.
