Product Description

Product Description

Elvis Presley may be the single most important figure in American 20th century popular music. No one could argue with the fact that he was the musician most responsible for popularizing rock & roll on an international level. Viewed in cold sales figures, his impact was phenomenal. Dozens upon dozens of international smashes from the mid- 50s to the mid- 70s, as well as the steady sales of his catalogue and reissues since his death in 1977, may make him the single highest-selling performer in history. (allmusic.com) Collected here are many of his key early recordings through to the end of 1957 along with rare live performances and interviews. * All original recordings digitally remastered * CD1 - In 1954 after an inauspicious session, Phillips invited local musicians Winfield 'Scotty' Moore and Bill Black to audition Presley. Though not overly impressed, a studio session was planned. During a recording break, Presley began 'acting the fool' first with Arthur Crudup's 'That's All Right (Mama)' Phillips got them all to restart and began taping. This was the sound he had been looking for. The group recorded other songs, including Bill Monroe's 'Blue Moon of Kentucky', 'Baby Let's Play House', 'I'm Left, You're Right, She's Gone' and many more * CD2 - Hear the true birth of Rock & Roll with the original recordings of the melodramatic Heartbreak Hotel, Carl Perkins's defiantly iconic teen anthem Blue Suede Shoes & the fiery brilliance of Lieber & Stoller's Hound Dog. 1956 was the year of Rock & Roll and Elvis was unstoppable. His covers of classics like Tutti Frutti, Lawdy Miss Clawdy, Long Tall Sally and Rip It Up remain unrivalled. CD1 also includes more melodic songs like Don't Be Cruel and the closing ballad Love Me Tender, the soundtrack to Christmas in 1956 * CD3 - features 1957 recordings including the worldwide million selling hits Jailhouse Rock, All Shook Up, Teddy Bear and Too Nice.

2.0 out of 5 stars NOT ALL of Elvis 1954-57 recordings 4 Mar 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is obviously a bargain compilation of most of the kings early recordings and I would buy it for convenience of having so much great music, all together on 3 cheap cds. However the accompanying write up states ALL his output to the end of 1957. Elvis fans will be able to list at least 10 ommissions. One Sided Love affair Let Me and 8 Christmas Album tracks come to mind at first glance. Personally, I would have preferred ALL tracks, without the interviews.

Well worth the asking price for any Elvis fan who does not already own these tracks. Another review has already referred to the tracks excluded from this compilation so my rating is based upon those included!
