When Sam Phillips set up his small Memphis record label on 3 January 1950, I doubt that in his wildest dreams he ever thought that he would go on to discover one of the finest performers of all time. It was said that Phillips once suggested that Elvis Presley was “the greatest man to walk the earth since Jesus.” It was Phillips who would go on to teach Elvis how to deliver what he had to offer, but in a strange turn of events would go on to sell his contract in November 1955 after having had some local success in the South — not one of the better business decisions Phillips would make.
