    • Ostensibly, Elvis recorded his first acetate as a gift for his mother, Gladys; however, it is more likely that he wanted to bring himself to the attention of Sam Phillips - as he ignored the cheaper amateur record-making service at a nearby general store. In January of 1954 he returned to Memphis/Sun to record a second acetate : "I'll Never Stand In Your Way" and "It Wouldn't Be the Same Without You". This time, Phillips himself took Elvis's $4.
