That’s All Right

Posted in music by adeli on July 19, 2008

Elvis Presley’s first single, “That’s All Right” was recorded on this day in 1954 at Sun Studios in Memphis, Tennessee, and was released in September of that year. The song was written and originally recorded by Arthur Crudup, earlier in 1954.

On this recording, Elvis provided vocals and rhythm guitar; Scotty Moore played lead guitar; and Bill Black was on the upright “slapped” bass. It was produced by Sam Phillips, and all parts were performed at once and recorded on a single track. “Blue Moon of Kentucky” was its B Side.

More on the legendary Sun Studios -and my recent visit there-will be coming your way soon.
