5.0 out of 5 stars A piece of history!, 24 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Elvis At Sun (Audio CD)
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.

"Charlie's guitar" ??? What's wrong with "Scotty's..." ?

Yeah...And what's Bill's "base"?

Yes, of course, I meant Scotty - a mistake I've corrected. ? I guess Charlie Hodge got in there somehow! Thanks for the prompt.

Let the man himself help you. In talking about his musicians Bill Black and Scotty Moore on his first recording Elvis says, 'We had a guitar, a base and another guitar' and '...and a base player...' Quotes from his 1968 Comback Special 'sit down' recordings one and two respectively.

Sorry to come into this conversation, but I think reviewer Keith Randall was referring to the spelling of Bass as in bass guitar, as opposed to your spelling (base).
