When RCA Records purchased Elvis Presley's contract and a back catalog that numbered only five singles and a handful of outtakes from Sun Records owner Sam Phillips for $35,000, few involved could have dreamed that the modest deal would change American music forever. This 1956 collection was Presley's first proper album (and arguably rock's first great LP), a release that both broke him to a national audience and became an enduring piece of pop-cultural iconography. Anchored by take-no-prisoners covers of fellow Sun rockabilly pioneer Carl Perkins' "Blue Suede Shoes," Ray Charles's "I Got a Woman," and Little Richard's "Tutti Frutti," it's an album where Presley forcefully hammers nascent rock 'n' roll into his own sultry image. But, as the bonus track of the breakout single "Heartbreak Hotel" and performances of Sun's "Blue Moon," the country ballad "I'm Counting on You," and "I Want You, I Need You, I Love You" ably attest, the 21-year-old Elvis possessed a mature, remarkable vocal range far beyond the hip-swiveling, sexually-charged hillbilly cat that was too often his caricature. A classic rock album a decade before there was such a thing--and one of Presley's most consistent and rewarding releases. --Jerry McCulley

Customer Reviews

So, one of the great early rock `n' roll albums, then.

As originally released in the US it contained 12 great songs and was a huge hit in the US and worldwide.

With the Elvis recording going into popular domain in Europe this year, RCA is finnally getting it right. The original albums, as they were, with bonus tracks, in the best possible sound, with original cover and back cover of the albums. Beautiful. The sound restoration is to write home about, using DSD technology, Elvis is suddenly alive again. You can hear him with such a clarity, every vocal inflexion he makes, it it just breathtaking, even compared to the remasters done three or four years ago. These three albums: Elvis Presley , Elvis and Loving You belong in everyone collection in this form. ESSENTIAL.

All my life I thought of Elvis as some relic of the 1950s which for some reason a fanatical group of people keep making pilgrimages to Graceland and keep buying his music. Well, I finally matured and got curious enough to genuinely try and see if I couldn't get past the pop-culture Elvis and see if I could understand just what made him a superstar.

I went shopping for "authentic" Elvis recordings. (I really hate when an artist has become so popular that the anthologies and greatest hits albums outnumber the original recordings two-to-one so that you have trouble even finding the albums in their original form.)

I stumbled on this one and bought it and...wow! This is the real deal! I feel like I'm listening to the beginning of the rock 'n roll era, and I try to imagine what happened when this was all new and just breaking on the music scene. It's like listening to history, and it's just plain well performed and fun to listen to as well. This CD is a steal!

So, now I get it. I finally get it.

This was rock and roll's first really big hit album and probably the first rock and roll album period! Of course Elvis was the first rock superstar. This album is underrated and under appreciated for its impact on popular music worldwide. It went to number 1 on the US album chart and stayed there for 10 weeks. As originally released in the US it contained 12 great songs and was a huge hit in the US and worldwide. It was an important part of the revolution in music that Elvis was leading. This reissue is even better than the original, with 6 bonus tracks including his first international hit, Heartbreak Hotel (it was not included on the original in 1956 because RCA did not want the album to hurt sales of the single; this was a common practice at the time). Despite no single being released from the original album, an EP was released including Elvis' version of Blue Suede Shoes which became a top 20 hit in the US and top 10 in the UK. Money Honey also became a minor hit and is my favorite song on the CD. This album was historic and is a must for Elvis and rock fans!

I have an appreciation for many forms of music but my musical growth stemmed from this one seed. This was the first album I ever bought when I was 9 or 10 years old (1973). Of all the music I've enjoyed in my life, my favourite genres are Rhythm & Blues, Rockabilly and Rock'n'Roll. And in the center of this musical era, you can't avoid Elvis Presley. If you collect the finest albums of the Rock'n'Roll/Rock period, this album is a must!
At the time that this album was originally released (March-April 1956), Elvis was a singles artist having only his smash hit single 'Heartbreak Hotel'/'I Was the One' on the national charts. RCA Victor's A&R man, Steve Sholes (supervisor of country and R&B recordings and the man who purchased Elvis and his Sun recordings from Sam Phillips in 1955) assembled this album from the collection of Sun singles and new RCA Victor Nashville recordings (Elvis' first RCA recording session, January 1956) where Sholes hoped to replicate the Sun sound. Sholes assembled a grab bag of Presley recordings that were not destined to be used on 7-inch singles.
The result is an album that documents an emerging new sound that will not only excite millions of young ears but will also influence many Rock, Pop and Country music artists all around North America and, more interestingly in terms of Rock history, overseas. The new sound here is Rockabilly and what we're hearing is a classic '50s Rockabilly quartet: Scotty Moore on electric, lead guitar, Bill Black on acoustic "doghouse" bass, D.J. Fontana on drums (lots of snare), and Elvis as the centerpiece, with vocals, acoustic guitar, and, for the stage audiences, gyratin' visuals.

As a kid this album was the one that brought me to rock and roll. The new beat with its blues and country accent was the greatest. I knew when I first heard this album that something great was comming. I would sing along to this album everyday. I listned to it when I was lonly, happy,sad, or just wanted someting to listen to. I traded it to my best friend years later for something I could not live without ( I don't remember what now). I saw this advertised and said I need this.

This album along with the next one were Elvis' best they showed real raw talent. Everything else was just icing on the cake ( a lot of icing). Great cake. The voice shows real emotion and his own style. The basic style would never change. He was great in the beginning and at the end. He brought R&R to mainstream America. Parents hated him because he was honest, polite,respected his elders,did his patriotic duty, didn't drink or smoke, and was loved by their children. Think about where their priorities and values were.

I am so glad this album was made axailable for a new generation
