Released: July 1954

One of the many tracks that’s been claimed as the first rock and roll record (alongside efforts from Fats Domino, Bill Haley, and Roy Brown), the Pelvis’ cover of blues singer Arthur Crudup’s ‘That’s All Right’ is certainly the one that broke him. His first commercial release was recorded in an impromptu jam featuring guitars, upright bass and no drums. The rest is, as you know, history.
