Million Dollar Quartet is the hugely successful Broadway musical that has now made its way to the West End’s Noel Coward Theatre. It tells the electrifying story of one night in 1956 when Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis all came together to make music in the recording studio of Sun Records’ producer Sam Phillips.

Million Dollar Quartet is not just about the music. The songs are all laced together with stories and anecdotes from the famous foursome and the manager of Sun records, Sam Phillips. The show acts as a mini-history lesson about the birth of rock 'n' roll, and the wider social changes that were afoot at the time.
This is a remarkable recording, offering not only a glimpse of the real Elvis Presley but standing as a musical artifact of the birth of rock and roll.
