At the very start of his musical career and during his less than two years with Sun Records, Elvis recorded 24 songs, and Sun Records released 10 of those on 5 singles. The third single to be released (Sun 215) included the tunes “You’re A Heartbreaker” by Jack Sallee with “Milkcow Blues Boogie” by Kokomo Arnold on side B. The songs were both recorded by Elvis in the Memphis Sun Studios on December 8, 1954 and released on December 28, 1954. The following February, Elvis recorded the Arthur Gunter song “Baby Let’s Play House” which was the B side for the release of Sun Records 217. In March of 1955, Elvis recorded “I’m Left, You’re Right, She’s Gone,” an interesting song written by Stan Kesler and William Taylor that only Elvis’ velvety voice could turn into an amusing and fun tune. Sun 217 was released on April 10, 1955. One additional Sun Records single was released on August 6 before that November 1955 when RCA purchased Elvis’ contract from Sun Records, making the original Elvis Sun Records highly collectible. Each 45 measures 7 inches (17.8 cm) in diameter, with “I’m Left, You’re Right, She’s Gone / Baby Let’s Play House” contained in a white sleeve and “You’re A Heartbreaker / Milkcow Blues Boogie” contained in a blue Mercury sleeve. Both are accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



Both records exhibit signs of wear and use, with surface scratching and scuffs overall and wear to the labels. Very Good to Excellent condition overall.
1954-55 Sun Records 215 and 217 — Elvis Presley’s “Milkcow Blues Boogie” and “Baby Let’s Play House”
