Another Era Another Elvis

Another era today and indeed another Elvis.
As opposed to yesterday's  Declan Patrick MacManus today we give you Elvis Aaron Presley.

From 1999 on the RCA label Sunrise is a two disc compilation of Elvis Presley's Sun Studio recordings from 1953 to 1955 prior to his move to RCA.
The first disc has all the 18 professionally recorded songs from his stint at Sun with the second disc featuring alternate takes and some acetate recordings.
This should set me up nicely for Peter Guralnick's  Careless Love: The Unmaking of Elvis Presley which kicks off in 1958.

I'm considering a move to Memphis ....


  1. Love mystery Train. But I suggest you would be better purchasing Last Train To Memphis and reading the books in the correct order

  2. Mystery Train could very well be the best song I hear today

  3. Get out of Memphis, baby, go!

  4. Somehow I missed this post at the time, not sure how - and Mystery Train is my favourite Elvis track!
