The most memorable interactions between Elvis and Jerry was the conception and fruition of the “Million Dollar Quartet” in 1956. As a Carl Perkins recording session at Sun was finishing, Elvis dropped by pay a visit to Phillips. That day, Perkins was backed by Jerry Lee Lewis on the piano. The recording session then turned into an impromptu jam session with the group singing and playing together, which Phillips recorded on the tape-recorder.

The iconic jam session later became known as the “Million Dollar Quartet” session and is considered a seminal moment in rock and roll history. ‘The Million Dollar Quartet’ was first released in Europe in 1981 and featured 17 tracks. A few years later more tracks were discovered and released as ‘The Complete Million Dollar Session’. In 1990, the recordings were released in the United States as ‘Elvis Presley — The Million Dollar Quartet’.
