Elvis the debut album 1956

I am listening to Elvis’s first album on heavyweight 180 gram vinyl LP record released in 1956 that is 60 years ago.For many people this is the album that started it all although some cite Little Richard some Jerry Lee Lewis some Chuck Berry as being the spark that lit the flame in terms of popular appeal Elvis was the one that made the biggest commercial impact as soon as the needle touches down on the platter and the opening lines of Heartbreak Hotel jumps out at you you know you are listening to history.
