Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 56/500!
Elvis Aaron Presley was born during the Great Depression into a poor family in Mississippi. They moved to Memphis during the early fifties, and as a struggling young truck driver, Elvis cut some demos as a gift for his beloved mother Gladys. These initial songs, of which he had only paid a few dollars to record, would become the catalyst that would kick-start the beginnings of a soon to be worldwide superstar unlike the world has ever known.
The folks at RCA Victor knew that this young fellow named Elvis was destined for super stardom. They quickly signed the legend to a long-term deal in 1956, and his first RCA Lp simply titled "Elvis Presley" forever etched "The King Of Rock And Roll" trademark to his name. He would eventually become the most successful solo artist of all time!
Easily the first top selling rock and pop album of the fifties, "Elvis Presley" was a treasure trove of his first RCA sessions and Sun session and included such great tracks as his signature "Blue Suede Shoes", the rock-a-billy smash "Just Because" & the stellar balladry of "Blue Moon."
More great Elvis tunes abound as he pays tribute to The Drifters with a rockin' version of "Money Honey" and the Ray Charles' classic "I Got A Woman."
Featuring 12 of his most familiar tunes, the debut "Elvis Presley" album went on to become one of his most memorable titles in his huge arsenal of masterful rock and roll albums, as well as one of the most copied album covers of all time.
Thanks to his finest rock smashes like "Tryin' To Get To You" and the piano rocker "One Sided Love Affair", this debut masterpiece was just what the fans were screaming for, as the entire album was built around the framework of his new and exciting rock trademark sound.
