    Description

    Elvis Presley Sun Records Set of 5 (Sun, 1954-55). Elvis' legend was being built in the years 1954 and 1955. There were the concerts, of course, the appearances on the Louisiana Hayride, but it was the Sun 45 releases that really gave the legend its impetus. Before the King of Rock and Roll was the King, before RCA Records bought his contract in late 1955 for the then-jawdropping figure of $40,000, Elvis recorded five records for Sam Phillips' Memphis label, and copies of those discs are especially prized today.

    Our offering not only includes all five records, these copies of "That's All Right"/ "Blue Moon of Kentucky", "Good Rockin' Tonight"/ "I Don't Care if the Sun Don't Shine", "Milkcow Blues Boogie" / "You're A Heartbreaker", "Baby Let's Play House"/ "I'm Left, You're Right, She's Gone", and "I Forgot to Remember to Forget"/ "Mystery Train" are the finest we've ever seen -- all are in MT 9 condition! To find one of these records in Mint condition would be a coup -- finding all five together, next to impossible! Now more than 50 years after they were pressed, only a handful of Elvis' Sun recordings exist in this condition. You can chance finding each record in high grade, but why wait when you could bid on this set?
