How #ElvisPresley got his big break @sunstudio

How #ElvisPresley got his big break @sunstudio

After Elvis got famous, he left Sun Records and one day, he came back to see some old friends. Johnny Cash (I Walk The Line), Carl Perkins (Blue Suede Shoes) and Jerry Lee Lewis (who was not famous yet but went on to have hits such as Great Balls of Fire) were also there and they started an impromptu jam session which lasted about 4 hours . Of course, Sam Phillips didn’t miss the opportunity to record the whole session which the 4 were not aware of at that point in time. Today, we’re only able to listen to parts of that recording because of copyright/legal issues between the various recording companies involved (since Elvis was no longer at Sun). However, when we heard that snippet of the jam session during the tour, we could hear the simple love for music during that session. Amazing!
