Take a look back at the life and death of Elvis Presley, the king of rock & roll

A fascinating archive of letters, a chronicle of the birth of Elvis Presley’s career at Sun Records at auction in the uk this weekend.

The letters, which were taken over by the Sun Record Company in Memphis, and span the time period from July 1954 to December 1955.

Auctioneer Andrew Aldridge told Fox News that the letters are one of the most important archives relating to the Presley’s early career, to the benefit of the auction in the last couple of years. “It’s going to be one of the most of his career with the Sun Records for the release of his first album,” that’s All Right, Mama,” he told Fox News by e-mail. The archive contains a rejection letter from an LA record company, claiming that “Elvis Presley records would not sell in Los Angeles”.

Aldridge notes that, nine months later, Elvis released “Heartbreak Hotel.”

One of the other letter, which was sent from a Miami producer, at Sun Records owner, Sam Phillips, discusses the challenges facing the deployment of “that’s All Right Mama,” which has been referred to as the “Sun 209.” The distributor said: “I think it’s a great album, and my immediate response in Miami and it was very good, but it is in the northern part of Florida, that they do not touch as they are of the opinion that it’s too hot.”
