Goosebumps... The 1st Elvis Presley acetate recording, transferred to digital. (Video)

King Elvis' 1953 unripe SUN recordings of "My Happiness" and "That’s When Your Heartaches Begin", digitally transferred for reissue by Jack White’s Third Man Records

In January 2015, it was announced that the first ever Elvis Presley recordings (I'm pretty sure, any visitor of this space knows perfectly well the legendary story for the supposed Gladys' birthday present, am I right..?) had been sold for the amount of $300,000! The buyer as it turned out was the once upon a time White Stripes main man, Jack White. So, Jack met with legendary music archivist Alan Stoker (son of the original Jordanaires member Gordon Stoker BTW, a cool coincidence at least...) at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville, TN to have this rock n roll top notch rarity, digitally transferred for a Third Man repress for the masses, trying at the same time not to lose the feeling and the soul that makes these two songs both haunting and breathtaking! Check out the following footage of Alan Stoker and Jack White as they make the transfer and peel back the label to discover a very special surprise (at least for me)!!! Rock and Roll goosebumps...
