Elvis Presley: The Starting Point

Elvis Presley’s self-titled RCA Victor debut LP arrived just as the singer’s fame and influence were hitting their stride and its impact has yet to subside. From its iconic cover design that has been copied multiple times, to the relentless track selection that alone could stand as a greatest hits collection all on its own, “Elvis Presley” stands as one of the most enduring albums in the history of rock & roll. Heck, it even sounds good, by today’s standards no less, with a clean, powerful monophonic mix that delivers every sonic element with crystal-clear detail.
