Product description

Elvis was initially tagged a County & Western singer by local media in the South; indeed he was a huge fan of Roy Acuff, Jimmie Rodgers, Hank Snow et al - credible country names popular throughout the US in the early 1950s. His main point of reference musically however, was The Blues, in which he'd been steeped even before his family moved to Memphis when the future King was just 12 years old. Race radio stations across the Southern States were accessible at the far end of the dial and from these he learned many of the tunes that would later form part of his repertoire. Once the Presleys were ensconced in Tennessee's largest city, Elvis was further informed and inspired by the sounds and sights he witnessed on Memphis notorious blues hangout, Beale Street - home to any number of juke-joints , record stores replete with listening booths and nightclubs in which white faces were rarely seen. When Presley wandered into Sun Studios in 1954 and finally persuaded owner Sam Phillips let him audition for the label, the session was initially deemed uninspiring and unfruitful until - late into the night - Elvis began goofing around on his acoustic 6 string to Arthur Crudup's 1946 blues That's All Right. When local musicians Scotty Moore and Bill Black began playing along, Phillips declared he had finally found the sound he had been looking for, for so long a white man who could really sing the blues. The rest - as they say - is history. This 2CD set brings together over 50 of the original blues recordings that Elvis had been influenced by in his pre-fame days and which helped form the blueprint for the most dazzling and popular musical career of all time. Complete with extensive liner notes detailing the reference points of each cut, this collection is the ultimate compilation of The Songs That Drove Him Wild just as it says on the tin.
