Elvis' first trip to the Louisiana Hayride in Shreveport was memorable. He left Memphis on a Friday night, October 15, 1954, after a gig at the Eagles Nest, driving all night with Sam Phillips, Scotty Moore and Bill Black. They missed the turnoff in Greenville, Mississippi, because of Bill Black's clowning; later, Scotty Moore almost ran over a team of mules. Arriving in Shreveport the next morning, they checked into the Captain Shreve Hotel downtown. The Hayride has a storied history. Its first broadcast was April 3, 1948. It was broadcast live on Saturday nights from Shreveport on KWKH, a 50,000 watt clear station reaching 28 states. It was also on the CBS radio network to 198 affiliates across the country.
Elvis Presley (released in the UK as Elvis Presley Rock n' Roll) is the debut studio album by American rock and roll singer Elvis Presley. It was released on RCA Victor, catalog number LPM-1254, in March 1956. The recording sessions took place on January 10 and January 11 at the RCA Victor recording studios in Nashville, Tennessee, and on January 30 and January 31 at the RCA Victor studios in New York.
In 1983, live radio appearances by Elvis Presley on the Louisiana Hayride in the mid-'50s turned up on several record labels. This is the original "Memphis Flash," as announcer Horace Logan puts it, accompanied only by guitarist Scotty Moore and bassist Bill Black (and, on "Hound Dog," drummer . Fontana), but stirring up considerable excitement from the sound of the crowd.
Undergoing a complete sonic restoration using state of the art digital technology, the original recordings which previously suffered from inferior sound quality, have been brought back to life allowing the magic of a 19-year old Elvis Presley to shine through
