Rock & roll was a long time coming, but it would have undoubtedly taken even longer to arrive if it weren't for Elvis Presley, whose raw and passionate mix of country and blues and his charismatic appeal, yay or nay, made him the most explosive star of the 1950s. Even though he would take his music and career to the level of caricature and spectacle, his early sides form the essence of his enduring legacy. This four-disc, 48-track set, which includes Presley versions of "Hound Dog," "Don't Be Cruel," "That's All Right," "Blue Moon of Kentucky," "Mystery Train," "Blue Suede Shoes," "Jailhouse Rock," and many others, shows just how much he owned pop radio and the world in the 1950s.
