This film tells the unusual story that lies behind the making of Elvis Presley's first album for RCA Records, in 1956, and his meteoric rise to superstardom. In Memphis, Sam Phillips (founder of Sun Records) gives the inside story of those groundbreaking days when he auditioned, produced, and befriended Elvis. Scotty Moore (guitar) and D.J. Fontana (drums) recall - with rare home movie footage - how they toured 400 miles a day in Elvis's Pink Cadillac while a host of other witnesses to this historic time contribute, including Dixie Locke (Elvis's then-girlfriend), record producer/historian Ernst Jorgensen, biographer Peter Guralnick and fellow musicians B.B. King and Keith Richards. Includes performances from '55 and '56, interviews with Elvis, home movie footage of him at play and work, offering fresh insights into his life and his recordings.
