In a Chicago recording studio on September 6th 1946 a blues musician named Arthur “Big Boy” Crudup recorded a song he had written called “That’s All Right Mama”. In 1954 the song was then made famous by Elvis Presley when he released a more uptempo version of the track for his first commercial single. The song is regarded as one of the key elements that led to the start of Rock ‘n’ Roll music.
Rock and roll music, if you like it, if you feel it, you can’t help but move to it. That’s what happens to me. I can’t help it.”
- Elvis Presley
