A newspaper man who was at Sun Records that fateful night wrote, “This quartet could sell a million.” Soon they were dubbed the Million Dollar Quartet. This was the four legends-to-be only performance together; a cultural flashpoint that captured the birth of rock ‘n’ roll and has come to be known as one of the greatest rock jam sessions of all time. The men played hymns like “Blessed Jesus (Hold My Hand),” “Peace in the Valley” and “Down by the Riverside” while Phillips rolled tape. They also played country classics, particularly a handful of songs by Bill Monroe, whose “Blue Moon of Kentucky” had already appeared on the B-side of Presley’s first single in 1954. The band also tackled hits of the day by Chuck Berry and Pat Boone.
