We were taking a break and, all of sudden, Elvis started singing this song, jumping around and acting the fool. Then Bill Black picked up his bass and began acting the fool too, and I started playing with them.
Sam had the door to the control room open, and stuck his head out and said, 'What are you doing? He said, 'Well, back up. Try to find a place to start, and do it again'. So we kinda talked it over and figured out a little bit what we were doin'.
We ran it again, and of course Sam is listenin'. It was basically a rhythm record. It wasn't any great thing. It wasn't Sam tellin' him what to do. Elvis was joking around, just doing what come naturally, what he felt.
Tillman Franks has been quoted as saying, "I want you to give Bill Black the credit. Some have claimed that the sound of "That's Alright" was not entirely new, "It wasn't that they said 'I never heard anything like it before.

Rock 'n' rollan expansive term coined a couple years earlier by DJ Alan Freedhad now been to the pop mountaintop, a position it would never quite relinquish.

Cash hoped to record gospel music, but Phillips immediately nixed that idea. Cash did not return until Phillips recorded Perkins's original song Movie Maggwhich was released early March on Phillips's Flip label, which was all country. Presley's second and third records were not as successful as the first. Cash returned to Sun in with his song Hey, Porterand his group the Tennessee Threewho became the Tennessee Two before the session was over.
This song and another Cash original, Cry! Elvis was more like an Adonis. But as a rockabilly, Carl was the king of that. Perkins's "Blue Suede Shoes" sold 20, records a day at one point, and it was the first million-selling country song to cross over to both rhythm and blues and pop charts.
Both songs topped the Billboard charts. Sun and RCA weren't the only record companies releasing rockabilly music. They won all three times and guaranteed them a finalist position in the September supershow.

The style remained popular longer in England, where it attracted a fanatical following right up through the mids.
Rockabilly music cultivated an attitude that assured its enduring appeal to teenagers. This was a combination of rebellion, sexuality, and freedom—a sneering expression of disdain for the workaday world of parents and authority figures.
In an interview that can be viewed at the Experience Music ProjectBarbara Pittman states that, "It was so new and it London Is My Hillbilly Home - Various - Home Grown Rockabilly so easy. It was a three chord change. Over the years it has picked up a little dignity. It was their way of calling us 'hillbillies'.
The first record to contain the word "rockabilly" in a song title was issued in November "Rock a Billy Gal",  although Johnny and Dorsey Burnette recorded "Rock Billy Boogie" for the Coral label on July 4, The song had been written and performed much earlier, and refer to the birth of Johnny's son Rocky and Dorsey's son Billy, who were born around the same time inand were firstborns for each of the brothers. The song was part of their repertoire in when they were living in New York City and performing with Gene Vincent.
It's easy to understand how the New York audience might have thought the Burnettes were singing "Rockabilly Boogie," but they never would, because the term hillbilly was derogatory and would never have been used by the artists themselves.
Rocky Burnettewho later Lis-Kgn-Hav - Cool Hipnoise - ME FRTV become a rockabilly artist himself, has stated on his website that the term rockabilly derives from that song.

It was a big, barn-like building with great echo. This same facility would also be used to record other rockabilly musicians such as Buddy Holly and The Rock and Roll Trio.
The shape of the ceiling, corrugated tiles, and the setup of the studio were augmented by "slap-back" tape echo which involved feeding the original signal from one tape machine through a second machine. According to Cowboy Jack Clement, who took over production duties from Sam Phillips, "There's two heads; one records, and one plays back.

A comparison of rockabilly versions of country songs shows that while form, lyrics, chord progressions and arrangements are simplified and with sparser instrumentation, a fuller sound was achieved by more percussive playing—i.
Tempos were increased, texts are altered with deletions, additions, more intense, flamboyant loose singing, along with variation in melody from verse to verse. The first wave of rockabilly fans in the United Kingdom were called Teddy Boys because they wore long, Edwardian -style frock coatsalong with tight black drainpipe trousers and brothel creeper shoes. Another group in the s that were followers of rockabilly were the Ton-Up boys, who rode British A LHôpital - Georges Quilliou - Channig et Fanch, Paysan Breton and would later be known as rockers in the early s.
The rockers had adopted the classic greaser look of T-shirtsjeans, and leather jackets to go with their heavily slicked pompadour haircuts. The rockers loved s rock and roll artists such as Gene Vincentand some British rockabilly fans formed bands and played their own version of the music.
The most notable of these bands was The Beatles. As the band became more professional and began playing in Hamburg, they took on the "Beatle" name inspired by Buddy Holly 's Crickets  and they adopted the black leather look of Gene Vincent.
Musically, they combined Holly's melodic songwriting sensibility with the rough rock and roll sound of Vincent and Carl Perkins. When The Beatles became worldwide stars, they released versions of three different Carl Perkins songs, more than any other songwriter outside the band, except Larry Williams I Said To Love - Gerald Finzi, Roderick WilliamsIain Burnside - I Said To Love / Let Us Garlands, who also added three songs to their discography.
Long after the band broke up, the members continued to show their interest in rockabilly. InLennon recorded an album called Rock 'n' Rollfeaturing Full House - Kate Bush - Lionheart of rockabilly hits and a cover photo showing him in full Gene Vincent leather.
The Beatles were not the only British Invasion artists influenced by rockabilly. Even heavy guitar heroes such as Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page were influenced by rockabilly musicians. However, Presley never took them up on that offer.
The Elvis "comeback" and acts such as Sha Na NaCreedence Clearwater RevivalJohn Roman Jackson, Don McLeanLinda Ronstadt and the Everly Brothersthe film American Graffitithe television show Happy Days and the Teddy Boy revival created curiosity about the real music of the s, particularly in England, where a rockabilly revival scene began to develop from the s in record collecting and clubs.

Early shows were attended by the Rolling Stones and Dave Edmunds, who quickly ushered the boys into a recording studio.
They returned to the USA, performing on the TV show Fridays with a message flashing across the screen that they had no record deal in the States.
However, personal conflicts led the band to break up at the height of their popularity. Brian Setzer went on to solo success working in both rockabilly and swing styles, while Rocker and Phantom continued to record in bands both together and singly. The group has reconvened several times to make new records or tours and continue to attract large audiences live, although record sales have never again approached their early '80s success. Shakin' Stevens was the biggest selling singles artist of the s in the UK and number two across Europe, outstripping Michael JacksonPrinceand Bruce Springsteen.

Irish rockabilly artist Imelda May has been partly responsible for a resurgence of European interest in the genre, scoring three successive number one albums in Ireland, with two of those also reaching the top ten in the UK charts.
