The film tells us the unusual story that lies behind the making of Elvis Presley's first album for RCA Records, in 1956, and his meteoric rise to Super Stardom.
In Memphis, Sam Phillips, founder of Sun records, gives the inside story of those ground breaking days when he auditioned, produced and befriended Elvis. Scotty Moore (guitar) and D.J Fontana (drums), describe how they helped Elvis record the album in Nashville and New York, aiming for "feel, not perfection".
They recall, with rare home movie footage, how they toured 400 miles a day in Elvis' Pink Cadillac, rehearsing the songs that Elvis would immortalise in that first album.
Dixie Locke, then Elvis' steady girlfriend, describes how shy, mercurial and glamorous the young Elvis appeared, and how he coped with his new found stardom. Record producer/historian Ernst Jorgensen and biographer Peter Guralnick describe the shock impact of 20 year old Elvis and the astonishing simplicity of this album's execution. Musicians B.B. King and Keith Richards tell us what made Elvis the King of Rock 'n' Roll.
The film is filled with performances from '55 and 56', interviews with Elvis and rare home footage of him at play and work, offering fresh insights into his life an his recordings. Featured songs include Blue Suede Shoes, Shake Rattle and Roll, Tutti Frutti, Money Honey and Elvis' first million dollar seller Heartbreak Hotel, and songs from his early Sun sessions: Mystery Train, Baby Let's Play House and That's All Right.

The boring but necessary Stuff:
I am the sort of person that always keeps my eyes open for great deals when I am out & about. I enjoy passing on the bargains I find to others via ebay, that would not otherwise be in the right place at the right time to grab that bargain :) I do this as a hobby, because in today's difficult economic climate, I understand the necessity for most people to make every dollar go as far as it can.
I genuinely enjoy finding bargains & helping others, so I find that doing this gives me the opportunity to partake in both of these things :) As time permits...I list things for sale here on ebay, to offer others the opportunity to purchase items I've found at a decent price.
Unfortunately I have recently had 1 buyers item go missing in the Post :( I have had a few drama's dealing with that, so please find below some terms & conditions I have had to add to all my pages (all sounds so formal)...to protect myself from further financial losses in the future.
TERMS & CONDITIONS OF SALE:
I like to offer my buyers a selection of great items at great prices & of course, the cheapest postage I can. I don't charge extra for bubble wrap etc or the time it takes me to package & post items. I am happy to combine items to be posted together, to save you money where I can :)
However, when you purchase any of my items, you are agreeing to & are happy with the following conditions:
You will always know when your parcel has been posted by me, as the item will be 'marked as sent' on ebay, once it is posted :) Please be assured, when I post an item, it is in perfect condition (unless otherwise stated on the items sale page).
If you are concerned about your item being damaged or getting lost during transit, I would recommend paying extra for postal insurance (for your peace of mind). Otherwise, if your parcel does not arrive or is damaged, you are not only inconvenienced, but could have lost your money IF Australia Post is not able to locate it or financially compensate you.
Therefore, once your item is posted if you have any issues with damage/loss in transit, please contact your local Australia Post outlet for a complaint/claim form.
All items are checked before posting and will be posted in the exact condition listed on each items sale page.
A good feedback record is important to buyers & sellers alike, therefore:
