On #ThisDayinHistory 1956, the “Million Dollar Quartet” has its one and only recording sessi on. It was in a modest storefront recording studio in Memphis where Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee L ewis and Carl Perkins met and had a historic jam session #AceHistoryNews – @AceHistoryNews

#AceHistoryNews – Dec.04: But, most had never heard about it until 1981, when the first portions of the lost tapes were discovered and released: The studio was run by Sam Phillips, legendary producer whose Sun Records had launched Elvis Presley on his path toward stardom two years earlier with the release of his first single, “It’s Alright Mama.” Among other stars cultivated by Phillips, was Carl Perkins the rockabilly legend who was in the studio on that day to record a follow-up to his smash hit “Blue Suede Shoes” from earlier that year #AceHistoryDesk reports
