Listening to this cd, might be a little irritating to some. The recording equipment of the time was primitive. Some Elvis fans might consider this release to be for the completist. For me I enjoyed this release immensly. Great stuff by a young Elvis, covering the years 1954-1956, despite at times muffeled recordings. Regardless of the primitive recording equipment of the time it does not take away from the true treasure this music is. Wife Of The late Johnny Cash, June Carter even has a say about her experience meeting Elvis. Great packaging as you can see on my downloaded photos above. Great linear notes and pictures in this small but awesome twentynine track package release. A true must have for any Elvis fan. if you want more elvis in his very young years try Elvis at Sun, trust me this is an incredible listening experience. With all these Elvis rereleases it is a shame the King isn't around to see how limitless his legacy is today, thirtyfive years after his untimely death.

Have collected EP since the summer of 1964 and have all the "essentials"...and then some. Have great memories of buying, perhaps, an Elvis single a month in my teenage years..while my friends (most of them) stared at me in disbelief (in that "British Invasion" period in pop).

This item is amazing. As a loyal, longtime fan I can say most of the photos and many of the backstories are new to me. I'm still astonished that at age 19, he had that kind of command and was so responsible for a *new* sound. He wasn't 41 and well traveled, by any means. (Just listen to that first, October, 1954, show: he is almost too relaxed!) He "got there" just by *listening* - to his small collection of 78s...on friends' record players. And *watching*: excuse the mention in the same writing breath - but he watched Pentecostal Preachers bang on guitar and walk amongst the asembled - and yes, he watched sensuous aesthetes in strip joints....no?

He cut his first [personal]disc at Sun when he was 18 and could only hear it a pal's house. The pal kept the thing until about 1990!).

For the deep historian, there's not alot that's new - in fact by now, two more Hayride performances have been released - but the sound is crystalline and the actual recording dates are nicely mounted, too - and man, it's so cool, to listen to say "January 15th, 1955" and see a corresponding photo in the pages.

It occurs to me that this CD really tells the larger story of one man and his music which became our music. He sounded confident at 19...a young country boy with a new style...by 21 he was larger than life..in fact, his farewell Hayride show, in December, 1956, after selling millions and millions of discs, and making a very respectable Hollywood western, has little to do with hillbilly bop...

Any ELVIS fan would love this cd. It is the ELVIS we all fell in love with in the very begining. The booklet that comes along with it has very instering events that got ELVIS started. This is where this 19 year old began to change the world of music. if you like ELVIS you will like this cd.

The music depicts Elvis at the very beginning of his career: unabashed, unassuming, and unrefined. This means the performances are exciting, enthusiastic and fun. If you want to hear Elvis in the very begining of his career and before he became the King with all the trappings, by all means add this music to your collection. Performances are also very rare to find anywhere else.

This material has been released in multiple forms before, but this is a nice presentation of my favorite period Elvis material: The mid 50's Sun era. The material is of varying sound quality, from very good to not so good, but given the historical importance any sources of live material from this era in Elvis' career are worth their weight in gold to a true Elvis fan. This CD is not for the casual fan but is a necessity in the music library of one who wishes to trace the roots of Rock and Roll.
