The Artist

Elvis Presley was an American singer and actor. Regarded as one of the most significant cultural icons of the 20th century, he is often referred to as the “King of Rock and Roll” or simply “the King”. With a series of successful network television appearances and chart-topping records, he became the leading figure of the newly popular sound of rock and roll. His energised interpretations of songs and sexually provocative performance style, combined with a singularly potent mix of influences across colour lines during a transformative era in race relations, made him enormously popular—and controversial. Presley is one of the most celebrated and influential musicians of the 20th century. Commercially successful in many genres, including pop, country, blues, and gospel, he is the best-selling solo artist in the history of recorded music.

The Song

Jailhouse Rock is a song written by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller that first became a hit for Elvis Presley. RCA Victor released the song on a 45 rpm single on September 24, 1957, the song had a film release of Presley’s motion picture under the same name, Jailhouse Rock. Some of the characters named in the song are real people. Shifty Henry was a well-known LA musician, not a criminal. The Purple Gang was a real mob. “Sad Sack” was a U.S. Army nickname in World War II for a loser, which also became the name of a popular comic strip and comic book character. Many considered the theme song for Presley’s third movie had decidedly silly tongue-in-cheek lyrics. The King, however, sang it as straight rock & roll, overlooking the jokes in the lyrics. The record is an EP consisting of other tracks from the movie.

Elvis Presley – The Shape

Modelled into a silhouette bust of Elvis Presley in his hair style taken from the era of the record and the film Jailhouse Rock. The Jail bars were inspired from the studio photos that were taken to promote the film and the white and blue background colour options are taken from the colours of the jail inmates jerseys.
