Summary

Summary

In 1956, Elvis Presley went from being a cult hero with a few regional hit singles in the deep South to becoming the most talked about performer of the decade, kicking down the door for the rock 'n' roll revolution in the process. Classic Albums: Elvis Presley is a documentary which looks back at the recording of Presley's first album for RCA Victor, as he cut such classic sides as "Heartbreak Hotel", "Blue Suede Shoes", and "Shake, Rattle and Roll". Classic Albums: Elvis Presley features interviews with Sam Phillips, who discovered Elvis and recorded his first singles for Sun Records; Dixie Locke, who was Presley's girlfriend at the time; biographer Peter Guralnick; historian Ernst Jergensen, and musicians Keith Richards and B.B. King. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
