Elvis Presley may have left the building in 1977, but you'd never know it. This week, the King's crown from one of his teeth is up for auction, RCA Legacy just released From Elvis in Nashville a 4 CD box set with accompanying vinyl and tonight kicks off the Holiday Lighting Weekend at Graceland in Memphis, Tennesse.
The Memphis Sound became reality this day in 1950 when Sam Phillips reopened the Memphis Recording Company under the name of Sun Studio. History was made that day. Just imagine a musical world without the influence of Elvis or Cash or The Killer or Conway?
