Elvis Presley (Green vinyl)

Elvis' debut LP, titled Elvis Presley, was the first rock album to reach number one on the charts, and RCA's first million dollar-earning pop album.

Artist: Elvis Presley

Genre: Rock

Label: 20th Century Masterworks

Release date:


"Today it all seems so easy – RCA signs up the kid from Memphis, television gets interested at around the same time, and the rest is history. The circumstances surrounding this album were neither simple nor promising, however. A lot was unsettled and untried at the first of two groups of sessions that produced the Elvis Presley album – it wasn't even certain that there was any reason for a rock & roll artist to cut an album, because teenagers bought 45s, not LPs. This was as startling a debut record as any ever made, representing every side of Elvis' musical influences except gospel – rockabilly, blues, R&B, country, and pop were all here in an explosive and seductive combination. Elvis Presley became the first rock & roll album to reach the number one spot on the national charts, and RCA's first million dollar-earning pop album." (Bruce Eder)
