iTunes Review

It was 1959, Elvis was in the Army, and RCA had to do something quick. So they put together this album, drawn mainly from the Sun singles that his younger fans hadn’t heard yet, plus some newer RCA sides in the same primal R&B/rockabilly vein. Nobody should be without “Shake, Rattle and Roll,” which has two of Scotty Moore’s most blazing guitar solos. The spooky majesty of "Mystery Train" is unrivaled, while "I Was the One" is one of The King's most affecting ballads.

Out takes and recaps

These two albums, "For LP Fans Only" and "A Date with Elvis" brought together most of the Sun session masters that RCA had not released on Elvis' first two albums (two Sun tracks had been released on "Elvis Presley" and "Elvis" in 1956). Interspersed among these Sun recordings are various outtakes previously unreleased. These albums noteworthy because they were the first time that public had ever heard the Sun tracks. As such, the cuts here are closer to their original masters than we have them today.

I never cared for the post military Elvis except for Stuck on You. The musicians, the production quality and the actual studios used all contributed to a quality not ever duplicated after he started his comeback. For the purist all this is about as good as it gets and is even more amazing considering the primitive, by today's standards, analog recording equipment.

For LP fans only

The Sun sessions were some of Elvis' greatest and most energetic songs he ever made. This album and the one that came after it "A Date with Elvis" are unfortunately out of print and have been replaced by "Elvis At Sun". (10/10)

Elvis Presley may be the single most important figure in American 20th century popular music. Not necessarily the best, and certainly not the most consistent. But no one could argue with the fact that he was the musician most responsible for popularizing rock & roll on an international level. Viewed in cold sales figures, his impact was phenomenal. Dozens upon dozens of international smashes from the mid-'50s to the mid-'70s, as well as the steady sales of his catalog and reissues since his death...
