    Where did young Elvis Presley got his inspirations from?
    This is the main question behind the concept for this compilation. Elvis Presley’s musical style and his stage performance was as unique as it can be but even Elvis Presley is not free from influences by other musicians and situations! We want to light up its darkness around this question with this first volume of the Elvis Presley connection and we did find musical answers!

    How much did Elvis Presley influence the music world in the 1950s?
    This is the next question we examine with this compilation. How did other performers react on Elvis Presley in the 50s, also those who hailed from other genres like pop or jazz? How got musicians from other countries than the US triggered by Elvis’ blast in ’56? Listen to this unique compilation and you get the answers!

    Rare tracks
    Many rare recordings are compiled here, some for the first time on CD! We have demos by Clyde Stacy and Mack Allen Smith (rare SUN demo)!
