Elvis & The Birth of Rock
PAGE 1234
 
Alongside the stunning photography, ELVIS & THE BIRTH OF ROCK features a text of over 7,000 words. Lew and guest editor Mike McCartney describe what is was like to be in the presence of these now legendary performers.

Lew Allen:
'Buddy’s running off the stage at the end of his performance and the eyes of all of the musicians are on the orchestra leader, who is over to the left somewhere. Nobody is watching Buddy. It defines music in transition. A swing band backing a rock ’n’ roll musician. It was just another gig for Sam Donahue, since they were a local band.'

Auditorium Theatre, Rochester, New York,
January 19th, 1958
