Elvis Presley - Sun 209 (1954)

Just got a call from my "record guy" and he told me a person in the next state over had just called wondering if he'd be interested in an Elvis on Sun. Within two hours, I was driving home, dodging potholes with precious cargo on board.

Here is the first commercial release by a nineteen year old Elvis that introduced him to the world...or at least Memphis. It would go on to sell 20,000 records and reach #4 on the Memphis chart. It didn't hit any national charts.

Elvis Presley v, g / Scotty Moore g / Bill Black sb.

Recorded at Sun Studio in Memphis on July 5 (TA) & 6 (BM).
