Following the unexpected massive success of "Heartbreak Hotel," this was at startling a debut record as any ever made, representing every side of Elvis' musical influences except gospel - rockabilly, blues, R&B, country, and pop were all here in an explosive and seductive combination. Elvis Presley became the first rock & roll album to reach the number one spot on the national charts, and RCA's first million dollar-earning pop album.

I'm giving this 5 stars because of the music. I already have it on vinyl from when RCA released it back in 1985 to commemorate what would have been Elvis' 50th birthday.
