Our Review

One of the most auspicious debuts in popular music history, this is the ultimate Presley album hands down. Just look at the iconic black and white photo of Elvis in live performance that graces the cover. It feels like he is literally screaming at you to play it. And when you do, it's as timeless today as when it was first released nearly fifty years ago. Consisting of his initial forays into RCA's recording studio, as well as some left over tracks recorded at Sun, there is not a bum track on the entire album. Kicking off in high gear with Presley's version of "Blue Suede Shoes" this album doesn't let up. Killer tracks abound, including Elvis' take on the Ray Charles classic "I Got A Woman" and his eerie, almost supernatural spin on "Blue Moon." If you're looking for where rock and roll began, this is practically ground zero.

Customer Reviews

Elvis remastered (5 stars) If you think you know rock, you must own this stuff. Elvis introduced black Music to white kids. I was thirteen when Heartbreak Hotel came out and it was THE revolution. None of us white kids had heard anything like it. Sexy, passionate, and very cool. Everything white culture stood for exploded and we were liberated to think, sing and dance for ourselves. Elvis sang through the lie of segregation and celebrated the beauty of mixing it One for the Money... (5 stars) Elvis Presley's self-titled debut album, when it came out in 1956, stunned listeners everywhere. After a series of extremely popular singles released at Sun Records, Presley went to record for RCA and made an excellent album of twelve songs,...each one not written by him. They were all covers of personal favorites of his, with songs ranging from artists like Little Richard ("Tutti Frutti") to artists like Carl Perkins ("Blue S THIS IS THE AWESOMEST ALBUM EVER! (5 stars) I love how it's so original, and yet it sounds good. It's classic Elvis.

Biography

Born: January 08, 1935 in Tupelo, MS Genre: Rock Years Active: '50s, '60s, '70s Elvis Presley may be the single most important figure in American 20th century popular music. Not necessarily the best, and certainly not the most consistent. But 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,...
