Elvis Is Back!

elvis_presley_10.jpg

Cyprus Avenue celebrates The King of Rock 'n' Roll a few weeks after what would've been Elvis' 77th birthday.

In 1954, Elvis began working with Sun Records' Sam Phillips. Soon after, he met his future manager, Colonel Tom Parker -- and the rest is rock 'n' roll history.

Below find some Elvis music history in the form of YouTube videos (including Johnny Cash's Elvis impersonation) and this week's Cyprus Avenue Elvis playlist.
