Elvis sent shock waves through a repressed nation in 1956 with his soulful singing, wild hip gyrations and raw energy, attracting a record-breaking TV audience of more than 60 million people! Making television history, Presley headlined on the Ed Sullivan show two more times in the next few months, continuing to provoke ecstatic screams in the studio and keeping the country glued to their sets at home. Elvis s stage presence was considered so provocative that he was only filmed from the waist up for his third appearance.
Now for the first time, these legendary performances are collected onto one disc and clearly show why Elvis is the King of Rock and Roll.
Hit songs include:
Don t Be Cruel,
Love Me Tender,
When My Blue Moon Turns to Gold Again,
Peace in the Valley
