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.
