This film tells the unusual story that lies behind the making of Elvis Presleys first album for RCA Records, in 1956, and his meteoric rise to Superstardom. In Memphis, Sam Philips, founder of Sun Records, gives the inside story of those groundbreaking days when he auditioned, produced and befriended Elvis. Scotty Moore (guitar) and D.J. Fontana (drums), describe how they helped Elvis record the album in Nashville and New York, aiming for feel, not perfection. They recall, with rare home movie footage, how they toured 400 miles a day in Elvis Pink Cadillac, rehearsing the songs that Elvis would immortalise in that first album. The film is filled with performances from 55 and 56, interviews with Elvis and rare home movie footage of him at play and work, offering fresh insights into his life and his recordings. Featured songs include Blue Suede Shoes, Shake Rattle and Roll, Tutti Frutti, Money Honey and Elvis first million-seller Heartbreak Hotel, and songs from his early Sun sessions: Mystery Train, Baby Lets Play House and Thats All Right.
