    • Phillips began working with Elvis in early-1954 and put him in touch with Scotty Moore (Electric Guitar) and Bill Black (Acoustic Bass) to work on developing a repertoire and style of his own. On July 6, 1954, the trio was in the studio recording tunes for their first record when Elvis began banging out a raucous, impromptu rendition of Arthur "Big Boy" Crudup's "That's All Right (Mama)". Sam told the boys to "Run through it again and I'll put it on tape" and history was made. Phillips had found his "white man who had the negro feel" and rock and roll sprang forth from its roots in a frenetic blaze of youthful glory.
