Elvis Presley Items up for Auction
And not just any items... the first recording Elvis Presley ever made will be among items in an auction to take place in January.
The New York Times reports the recording will be a one-of-a-kind acetate of Presley's first recording, with 'My Happiness' on one side and 'That's When Your Heartaches Begin' on the other.
Graceland will hold the auction on January 8th, 2015, which would have been Elvis Presley's 80th birthday.
Taste of Country says,
"According to the Times, Presley paid four dollars to record the two songs at Memphis Recording Service on July 18, 1953. Historical accounts vary, with some saying the recordings were a gift for his mother, while others claim that he was either trying to find out how his voice would sound on record, or trying to catch the attention of Sam Phillips from Sun Records -- the label that gave Presley his start in 1954."
