Elvis Aaron Presley was born during the Great Depression into a poor family in
Mississippi. They moved to Memphis during the early fifties, and as a struggling
young truck driver, Elvis cut some demos at Sun Studios as a gift for his
beloved mother Gladys. These initial songs, of which he had only paid a few
dollars to record, would become the catalyst that would kick-start the
beginnings of a soon to be worldwide superstar unlike the world has ever known.
The folks at RCA Victor knew that this young fellow named Elvis was destined for
superstardom. They quickly bought out his contract and signed the legend to a
long-term deal, and his first RCA single Heartbreak Hotel forever etched “The
King Of Rock And Roll” trademark to his name. He would eventually become the
most successful solo artist of all time!
For the remainder of the 1950’s, Elvis Presley would release several more hit
albums, smash singles and movies before spending time in the Army. Ever proving
that he was indeed on top of his game, RCA Victor awarded their superstar artist
and his fans with the King’s first greatest hits collection Elvis’ Golden

biggest hits were just what the fans were screaming for, and the entire album
was built around the framework of his rocking trademark sound. The 1958 album
also was another blockbuster for The King as it topped the upper rungs of the
pop charts, making this one of his biggest albums of his career as well as one
of his most revered. Elvis’ Golden Records truly proved once again that his
career was unlike any other in music history.
Elvis’ Golden Records also included some of his finest number one ballads like
Love Me Tender and I Want You, I Need You, I Love You, plus more
top rock and roll hits like Teddy Bear, Treat Me Nice and Too Much.
