Notes:   527 pages hardcover book (30x30cm) documenting Elvis early years.

A BOY FROM TUPELO - THE COMPLETE 1953-55 RECORDINGS includes for the first time in one collection every known Elvis Presley SUN master and outtake, plus two private records Elvis paid for with his own money, as well as thrilling radio and concert performances from theperiod. This 3 CD package features 10 previously- unreleased cuts. The accompanying book is, in essence, a fully-illustrated travelogue. It thoughtfully details the birth of Elvis' career through facts, anecdotes, documentation, many rare photos, and a succinct narrative.
Independence Day 1954 is when this uniquely American saga begins, less than 24 hours before his first professional recording session, and it ends in December 1955, when the rights to Elvis' SUN tapes officially expire and the singer leaves Sam Phillips to record for RCA.
This is Elvis Presley before he becomes worldfamous, and the mystery of how this amazing young man readies himself for stardom, achieving success an a level that no one could have dreamed possible.
