Biography

Elvis Aaron Presley is one of the biggest-selling artists of all-time, but mere numbers cannot begin to explain the colossal cultural impact he had in the mid-20th Century. He was a central figure in the transformation of the grey, conservative 50s into the technicolor 60s through the liberalizing effect of rock and pop music. Frank Sinatra had proved extremely popular in the 40s with young ... Read more in Amazon's Elvis Presley Store

Product Description

Product Description

THE SOUND QUALITY OF EACH TRACK HERE IS THE RESULT OF MANY HOURS OF PAINSTAKING MINUSCULE ADJUSTMENTS AIMED AT EXTRACTING THE MOST NATURAL TONE AND AMBIENCE. THE RESULTS SHOULD PROVE TO BE A REVELATION TO THOSE FAMILIAR WITH THESE CLASSIC AND MEMORABLE PERFORMANCES: THOSE UNFAMILIAR SHOULD JUST DELIGHT IN A GREAT LISTENING EXPERIENCE

Sam Philips set off the career of one of the most significant legends of American popular music when he recorded Elvis Presley for his Memphis-based Sun Record label in July 1954, putting him together with Scotty Moore (Guitar) and Bill Black (Bass) in the hope that the team might make good. The issue of "That's All Right" together with "Blue Moon Of Kentucky" led to work for the group locally and throughgout the South, with a mixture of success and setbacks.
An association with "Colonel" Tom Parker led to Parker becoming Presley's manager. A high profile record label was needed and Sam Philips was pressed into selling Elvis's Sun contract, together with all of theSun material recorded, to RCA. The greater facilitiies of RCA formed the springboard for this then almost immediate fame which grew to unprecedented levels, still showing no signs of abating to this day. The King of Rock `N' Roll had a repertoire that included much of his favourite music and influences: whilst the Rock `N' Roll classics probably have the greatest appeal, echoes of performers such as The Ink Spots and Dean Martin together with gospel gave his work a more general popularity. As with all great artists, his talents extended to further than just his music: the demands of film and television presented no problem and his stage performances were stunning.
The issue of this CD gives the first chance to hear some of his legendary early and highly sought-after recordings in a sound quality that more positively reveals the excitement generated by his performances. What we beleive we have acheived is to open up the sound to reveal detail within it, such that everything, from a rich well-defined bass to crystal-clear drums and cymbals with the voice potently mixed in, has a clearly more natural quality. We hope you agree!

2.0 out of 5 stars This is not an improvement - just different 23 April 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
In an effort to "upgrade" these early Elvis tracks to more modern ears, something has been left behind. I'm sure a major amount of time and individual was spent re-eqing and de hissing these tracks any Elvis fan knows by heart. I know I've listened to them for nearly 50 years now, so I have a good idea of what each incarnation has sounded like - from the original LP to the FTD release from last year - and now this. Some tracks are brighter than you've heard them - but brighter and different is not necessarily better. What I'm always looking for in re-mastering of analogue recordings is an accurate reproduction of the original sounds, and in this case, it doesn't work.
For my ears (40+ years in broadcasting has trained them pretty well) the FTD release of the 1956 Elvis album with an extra disc of outtakes - all very well re-mastered - is the best to date.
As for the Sun material, I'm still waiting for SOMEONE to get it right.

5.0 out of 5 stars HE WAS THE ONE 16 Nov 2008
By Barry McCanna TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Elvis' first Sun recordings date from mid-1954, the material was fairly traditional and just three musicians were involved in the initial sessions. Nevertheless it was apparent that Elvis had something special, and the big chance came in Nashville in January 1956, with an expanded line-up that included Chet Atkins and Floyd Cramer. Five numbers were produced including the classic "Heartbreak Hotel". By the end of the month Presley was in New York recording for RCA, and the rest is history.

This compilation presents 25 tracks, twelve of which comprised the first LP, plus the remaining thirteen sides cut over that first 2-year period. The sound has been remastered, and the result is stunning, but then the originals were pretty impressive to begin with. Recording dates and personnel are set out in the insert, but the running order is not chronological.

Just by way of comparison, RCA Victor (who owned the copyright) has also come up with a reissue of the first LP, plus just six bonus tracks! Which puts this Avid compilation streets ahead.
