    Elvis Presley's First Two Record Albums (RCA 1254 and 1382, 1956). In Elvis' magic year of 1956, the recording industry was dominated by the single. Elvis had plenty of those - five #1s in '56 alone - but he was also instrumental in popularizing the heretofore long playing album. His first two albums spent a total of 15 weeks at #1. The first, Elvis Presley (RCA 1254, 1956 - "Long Play" at bottom of label, credits listed for "Just Because"), became the first Rock & Roll album ever to make it to the top of Billboard's Top Pop Albums chart, and it was the first million-selling Rock & Roll album ever. The follow-up Elvis (1382, 1956 - "Long Play" at bottom) was released barely a half-year later, and while just as raw and rockin', often gets overlooked when accolades are thrown around, just because it wasn't the first! Get 'em both here! Condition of both albums: EX 7 (covers)/ EX 7 (records). Jerry Osborne's Rockin' Records 2015 NM value for the two = $900-$1250.
