This is a domestic RCA tan label original promo pressing with some truly great Elvis music. These sessions were recorded at the legendary Sun Studios and feature a young Elvis in the process of becoming rock royalty. If I had to pick just two Elvis albums to live on, I'd probably go for this and From Elvis In Memphis and feel pretty well covered. The sound is good -- short of mindblowing but clean and correct -- and the vinyl plays quietly. I'd absolutely love to keep this copy but with so many great records around here, I feel pretty good about passing it along to another good home.
5 stars Allmusic: "What we ultimately have here is a young Elvis Presely, mixing elements of blues, gospel and hillbilly music together and getting ready to unleash its end result -- rock & roll -- on an unsuspecting world."
Vinyl: EX (can't imagine a nicer one)
Cover: VG+ (light ringwear as shown)
Play notes: Great natural sound and quiet vinyl -- an awesome record
