Yes, it's the legendary Louisiana Hayride 1954/55 live recordings again. But this 'Prism Leisure' version is truly in spectacular sound quality. Considering the historical importance and age of these recordings, the quality acheived is truly stunning. Fans will already have these songs, which have been issued on a bewildering array of CDs now, but for this price this version is unmissable.
The artwork is great (using those early rock 'n' roll colours), there's a short essay to sum up the contents and all in a nice jewel case. The highlight though, is the interview which closes the disc, where Elvis demolishes a particularly nasty critic, discusses his career and plans, refutes many allegations and rumours, and ultimately comes across as a thoroughly humble and likeable young man.
The true birth of the worlds biggest star.

I just love Elvis; but It is a great shame that it was not a copy of the original recording (which I have still- from new, but well played), If you do copy from the original recording let me know - and I will purchase it, and give it 5 star PLUS.
