Elvis' recordings for Sun Records are often touted as the birth of Rock n roll. A lofty statement indeed, but one that is at least partially true: After all, songs like "That's All Right" and "Milkcow Blues Boogie" are among the purest of expressions of anarchic freedom to come out of the fifties. But cast aside the historical speculation, and the Sun Sessions becomes simply a great rock album, packed with some of the most vital and heart-pumping musical preformances ever.
Songs like the afformentioned "That's All Right," as well as "Blue Moon of Kentucky," "Good Rockin' Tonight," and the pulsating "Mystery Train" are energizing blasts of pure passion, with spastic and spare instrumentation and Elvis' hillbilly blues swagger. "I'm Left, You're Right, She's Gone" and "You're A Heartbreaker" find Elvis diving into rhythmic, jaunty country, while "Baby Let's Play House" features some gorgeously scandelous hiccuping. There are even some superb ballads on board: "Blue Moon," "I Love You Because," and "Harbour Lights" are some of the most touchng, lovingly preformed soul-stirrers of all time. Over the course of this superb single disc collection, Elvis, croons, shouts, struts, moans, and hiccups some of his finest tunes. The result is one of the greatest songbooks in the history of American music. Your rock collection starts here.

People who thought Buddy Holly was an original need to listen to Elvis Sun Sessions.
Elvis did the vocal hiccup before Holly or Jackson.

Elvis sang his own brand of Rockabilly! The ultimate innovator! For me he is absolutely the Rockabilly King.
