Product Description


Comme l'écrit le journaliste Serge Loupien, qui a consacré un indispensable ouvrage à sa saga, cet album d'Elvis Presley, publié par le label RCA, représente les "tables de la loi du rock'n'roll", après qu'il en eut d'ailleurs posé les fondements dès 1954 avec l'enregistrement de "Good Rockin' Tonight". Lorsqu'il sort en 1956, Elvis s'est déjà produit dans quelques shows télévisés qui auront d'immenses répercussions médiatiques, notamment dans le Milton Berle Show où son interprétation du standard "Hound Dog" révèle aux Américains un charismatique chanteur qu'on ne tardera pas à surnommer Elvis le Pelvis (jamais on avait vu de tels déhanchements sur scène), mais aussi et surtout le King. Ce disque, simplement homonyme et qui fait l'effet d'une bombe, est du pur rock'n'roll dont on retiendra, outre la ballade "Blue Moon" (reprise dans Mystery Train, film de Jim Jarmush en forme de déambulation à Memphis), les classiques que sont "Tutti Frutti", "Blue Suede Shoes" et "I Got A Woman" précédemment immortalisés par Little Richard, Carl Perkins et Ray Charles. Sa cote de popularité, alors au sommet, déclenche l'hystérie des foules à chaque apparition et culminera avec sa prestation en fin d'année au fameux Ed Sullivan Show. Aujourd'hui encore, ce disque est une référence. Les Clash, en pleine déferlante punk, lui rendront hommage en reprenant l'esthétique de sa pochette (lettrage, couleurs, photo noir et blanc) sur London Calling. --Philippe Robert

5.0 out of 5 stars Elvis Presley: The First Rock'n'Roll Album ? Jan. 15 2004
Format:Audio CD
I have an appreciation for many forms of music but my musical growth stemmed from this one seed. This was the first album I ever bought when I was 9 or 10 years old (1973). Of all the music I've enjoyed in my life, my favourite genres are Rhythm & Blues, Rockabilly and Rock'n'Roll. And in the center of this musical era, you can't avoid Elvis Presley. If you collect the finest albums of the Rock'n'Roll/Rock period, this album is a must!
At the time that this album was originally released (March-April 1956), Elvis was a singles artist having only his smash hit single 'Heartbreak Hotel'/'I Was the One' on the national charts. RCA Victor's A&R man, Steve Sholes (supervisor of country and R&B recordings and the man who purchased Elvis and his Sun recordings from Sam Phillips in 1955) assembled this album from the collection of Sun singles and new RCA Victor Nashville recordings (Elvis' first RCA recording session, January 1956) where Sholes hoped to replicate the Sun sound.
The result is an album that documents an emerging new sound that will not only excite millions of young ears but will also influence many Rock, Pop and Country music artists all around North America and, more interestingly in terms of Rock history, overseas. The new sound here is Rockabilly and what we're hearing is a classic '50s Rockabilly quartet: Scotty Moore on electric, lead guitar, Bill Black on acoustic "doghouse" bass, D.J. Fontana on drums (lots of snare), and Elvis as the centerpiece, with vocals, acoustic guitar, and, for the stage audiences, gyratin' visuals. Elvis envisioned himself as a Pop ballad singer (a la Dean Martin) but this was the new style and sound that Sam Phillips, who originally produced and recorded black R&B talent at Sun Records, convinced him would make him stand out and be noticed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome July 28 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
It was an excellent cd except for his song Tutti frutti. That song is the most nerve racking version ever recorded. The best is Blue Suede Shoes and I Got a Woman. Elvis was the "BEST EVER" recording artist and has a sensational voice.

5.0 out of 5 stars When his talent was raw and incomparable. April 1 2003
Format:Audio CD
This expertly produced collection of his early hits offers the listener a tantalizing glimpse of the originality and depth of his awesome talent BEFORE his voice was homogenized for mass consumption. Upon listening to this very special collection, it will instantly become your favorite Elvis album as it speaks to you of the hope and promise that once was.
