Elvis Presley At Sun Records



Hopefully my Christian friends have a sense of humor about the picture at the bottom, I just cracked up when I saw it and had to include it here. Enough of that. I have seen a few 'Elvis at Sun' compilations and have not seen this one before. Also, since it also the only era of his career that I really enjoy, I hoped a few here would as well. That's the great thing about having one's own blog. I always appreciated Elvis as a cultural icon and stylistic signpost, but what I really remember of him was the bloated junkie performing pantomime in Vegas. He died when I was about 6 and it made an impression. I do recall my dad relating stories of how significant his contribution to popular music was to me when I was younger but I wasn't hearing any of it. The more I educated myself on the topic and looked deeper I could see some of what the old folks (sorry) were talking about. He certainly didn't invent rock & roll (he kinda stole, but we'll keep that under our hats, right?) but he was the image of the music and lifestyle when it went berzerk in the 1950's. In the days before his Army induction he seemed genuinely 'dangerous' to mid 50's America (which, albeit isn't saying much by today's standards...) and I can dig that and give him some posthumous respect for it. But, I digress - this is some great early Elvis and should please many ears. By the way, for all my rough talk about how much I don't enjoy most of his music 0 I do have about 200 albums worth of material here and if anyone need any, please just ask
