About this title


The myth has it that rock 'n' roll was born the day young Elvis Presley entered Sam Phillip's recording studio in 1954, but the truth is different according to this book. This book offers portraits of 25 performers - from the early Nat King Cole to Bill Haley - who preceded Elvis.
