MEMPHIS RECORDING SERVICE - THE COMPLETE WORKS 1953 - 1955

 

This Limited Edition 2CD book set celebrates Elvis Presley's earliest recordings at the Memphis Recording Service. The 100-page book chronicles Elvis' short recording career there, from its humble beginnings (his personal acetate recordings from July 1953 and January 1954) through to the final Sun sessions in 1955. The full and comprehensive text is complemented by rare photographs and unseen pieces of documentation. The 2CD's contain the complete archival studio recordings from 1953- 1955: Elvis? personal acetates, the Sun masters, along with rare session outtakes. The tracks have been painstakingly remastered and restored. Also included - for the first time since 1954 - is the 45rpm Sun release of 'That's All Right' in its original 'dry' form.
