The Sun Records Rockabilly Era
July 5, 1954
Elvis, Scotty and Bill reported to Sun after work. This was his first commercial session.
They tried to get something right, but Sam was not impressed. During a break Elvis burst out in “That’s All Right” and Sam Phillips demanded to know what Elvis was doing – and to do it again with the tape machine running.
Not everyone was convinced of its commercial appeal. Upon hearing the playback, lead guitarist Scotty Moore said, “They’ll run us out of town when they hear this.”
Sam Phillips then rushed the one sided record to the biggest DJ in Memphis, Dewey Phillips (no relation) and it became Elvis’s breakout hit – and is the first rock n roll record that established the Rock n Roll band as Strings with drums later.
