Description

It is now over 50 years since Elvis Presley made his first hot rhythmic recordings that would come to be regarded as so important historically as the first real Rockabilly records. Rhythm was the word along with lashings of upright slap bass, searing guitar breaks and some of the most exaggerated vocals ever heard in the pantheon of recorded sound. Elvis had it all and by 1956 had signed with the mighty RCA Victor company, who duly propelled him to ultimate stardom. In the beginning, however, Elvis had been a Mississippi country boy who had attracted the attention of Sam Phillips of Sun Records in Memphis. Elvis recorded his classic Sun sides during 1954-55 and toured all over the Southern States, whipping up crowds into a frenzy and inspiring dozens of like-minded country boys to follow in his wake. This mid price double presents 64 of the very best Rockabilly recordings of the era, including many that have come to be regarded as absolute classics of the genre. It's a Rhythm Riot from start to finish.
