Video: Watch Digital Transfer Of Elvis Presley’s First Recording

In 1953, Elvis Presley made his first recording of "My Happiness" and "That's Where Your Heartaches Begin" directly to acetate at Sun Studios in Memphis, TN. This one-of-a-kind piece was recently purchased by Jack White at auction. On February 26, he met with legendary music archivist Alan Stoker at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville, TN to have the record digitally transferred. A facsimile of the record, using this transfer without alteration, will be available on Record Store Day, April 18th, while a cleaned-up and remastered version will be available in the near future as a 7" on Third Man Records.
