You've Got To Hear Elvis' Hauntingly Beautiful First Recording

In 1953, Elvis Presley walked into Sun Studios and recorded his first record, including a song called "My Happiness."

It was recorded directly on acetate, so the record is a unique piece of rockabilly history. This process of recording makes a disc that is used to make copies and only one of these is ever made. This acetate record was made during a live recording session - it's groves were cut on the spot into an acetate-covered wax disc.

Since the material is so delicate and prone to damage - even more so than vinyl - it has a very high value to collectors and archivists.

After some careful treatment, Alan Stoker at the Country Music Hall of Fame transfers this precious piece of history into a digital recording that will last forever.
