Perfect Shadows in a Sunshine Day*

“He tried not to show it, but he felt so inferior. Presley probably innately was the most introverted person that ever came into that studio. He didn’t play with bands. He didn’t go to this little club and pick and grin. All he did was set with his guitar on the side of his bed at home. I don’t think he even played on the front porch.”

Sam Phillips

*"What are kings, when regiment is gone, but perfect shadows in a sunshine day?"
