On a cold night in January 1956, Elvis Presley walked onto a New York City soundstage for his first national TV performance. Two weeks later, in his third appearance, he sang a song that literally changed the world of popular music: "Heartbreak Hotel." Its unique sound and style literally blew away everything that came before it, while at the same time introducing the musical blueprint for everything that was to come. RCA Victor released his iconic debut album "Elvis Presley," which topped the Billboard chart for 10 weeks and became RCA's biggest-selling album to date, on March 23 of that year. As Presley took America and the world by storm, the follow-up album "Elvis" was released to feverish demand on October 19 that same year, remaining at #1 for 5 weeks.
The recorded legacy of Elvis Presley continues to be discovered by new generations that never saw him or heard him perform live. It's hard to appreciate that he started so much of what we take for granted now in popular music. Until 1956, the teenagers of suburban America, and the rest of the world, had to endure ditties by Rosemary Clooney and Perry Como but everything was about to be tossed upside down. On January 28 on a cold night in New York, Elvis took America by storm as he appeared on CBS-TV's Stage Show hosted by Jimmy and Tommy Dorsey. On February 4 for his second appearance he sang a song that literally changed the world of popular music "Heartbreak Hotel". Its unique sound and style literally blew everything before it away while at the same time inducing the blueprint for everything that was to come; by April, it would be #1 on Billboard.
