Product Overview

This 21 song, multi-artist compilation features some of rock 'n' roll's most indelible songs including tracks from Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Otis Redding & more!

On July 5, 1954 Elvis Presley was trying to prove himself to Sam Phillips at the Sun Studios in Memphis. He wanted to get a record deal and he was trying hard to get the right sound with Scotty Moore and Bill Black. Elvis and Sam both became frustrated so they took a break. Elvis and the boys started playing around with Arthur Crudup’s "That’s All Right" and suddenly, they had that "new" sound Sam had been searching for. Like most magical moments, this one wasn’t planned, it just sort of all fell into place. The rest, as they say, was history. Rock history. 2004 is the 50th anniversary of the recording of the song that changed music and culture forever. Elvis rocked onto the radio and never looked back. But if that song by that man was the shot heard round the world, there were other triggers being pulled all around him. Songs like "Rocket 88" by Jackie Brenston and "Blue Suede Shoes" by Carl Perkins were early rock records from two artists with their roots in the birthplace of rock ‘n’ roll, Memphis, TN.
