Elvis Presley (Tupelo, Mississippi, January 8, 1935 – Memphis, Tennessee, August 16, 1977) was rock & roll’s first real star and one of the most important cultural forces in history. He performed with a natural sexuality that made him a teen idol and role model for generations of cool rebels. His energized interpretations of songs, combined with a singularly potent mix of influences across color lines during a transformative era in race relations, made him enormously popular and controversial. Years of prescription drug abuse severely compromised his health, and he died in 1977 at his Graceland estate at the age of 42. Presented here are three of his best albums.
