9. Elvis At Sun……. Elvis Arron Presley
Elvis is rock n roll.
His massive fame and those endless Elvis impersonators have made his brilliance fade into an almost comical background. This is a tragedy. his music has all the sex and danger of classic rock n roll and more… His voice still sounds like a clarion call to rise up and certainly looked the part.
When you listen to the Sun sessions it’s like you are listening to the birth of rock n roll and its potent magic shines on through the decades.
This is Rock and Roll. It started here. If you don’t get this, you are a fucking idiot and should go work for a Government filing department, along with your family and all your dead relatives.
