2LP set in gatefold sleeve edition - 180g coloured vinyl (disc 1 red, disc 2 yellow). On December 4, 1956, these four young musicians gathered at Sun Records in Memphis for what would be one of the greatest jam sessions ever. This essential double LP edition (gatefold open cover) presents that legendary event in its entirety, while maintaining the original recording sequence.
Rock & roll was born of gospel, country, doo-wop, blues, pop, and cowboy songs, all of which can be heard here. Included here are several popular numbers from that period, such as "Rip It Up," "Don't Forbid Me," and "Out of Sight, Out of Mind," plus some of Elvis' own songs ("Don't Be Cruel," "Love Me Tender," and "Paralyzed"), and covers of Chuck Berry's "Brown-Eyed Handsome Man" and "Too Much Monkey Business," as well as traditional tunes, and some classic country and bluegrass songs penned by Hank Snow, Faron Young, Gene Autry and Bill Monroe.t".
