Elvis Presley: The Memphis Flash - The Way It All Began DVD
On the 5th of July, rock n' roll is invented the day that Elvis Aaron Presley walks into the Sun recording studio and cuts a record that changes the world forever.
But there's a lot more to the legend than is suggested in that story.
This film looks behind the facts and between the lines and attempts to discover why rock 'n' roll was invented in Memphis by a quiet, respectable and religious young man with a passion for all types of music.
How did the events that led up to that fateful session conspire to create a brand new music and a brand new way of life for all those who came along in its wake?
With contributions from those who were there at the time and from others who have studied the subject in depth, and with rare footage, photographs, and music from those pivotal sessions, this documentary goes some way to discovering the why and the how.
Songs featured include: 'That's All Right Mama', 'Blue Moon Of Kentucky', 'I Don't Care If The Sun Don't Shine', 'Good Rockin' Tonight', 'Milkcow Blues Boogie', 'You're A Heartbreaker', 'Blue Moon', 'Shake Rattle and Roll', 'I'm Left, You're Right, She's Gone', 'My Happiness' and many more.
