On Jan. 4, 1954, while still working as a truck driver, Elvis Presley went to the Memphis Recording Service in Memphis, TN, to record a song for his mother’s birthday which was many months away. He records “It Wouldn’t Be The Same Without You” and “I’ll Never Stand In Your Way.”
This was this recording that would lead Sam Phillips to call Presley back to record for his Sun Records label.
You’ll see the receipt is dated Jan. 6, but the date of the recording was Jan. 4. Very possibly the best $8.25 ever spent in the history of Rock and Roll. 64 years ago today.
