@ Richard:
Take a look at Wikipedia (among others sites...):

It is possible that a demo (Wilburn Bros. ...) circulated at the end of 55 and that it interested Leroy Duncan...Why not?

Hi Uncle Gil,

Many thanks for the info on Heartbreak Hotel......stuff I was unaware of.

I certainly didn't want to appear like a know-all arrogant person.

What a great CD? this is, and the sound quality is great.

The only other track I'm curious about is 'I'm counting on you' and according to Don Robertson penned track was recorded by Presley in '56

The first 3 tracks on side A were certainly recorded by others in 1955.....I'm not sure of the remaining tracks.

Thanks again Uncle Gil for these ultra rare recordings

@ Anonym Anonym:
Ask Brother Wiki and...
""Slippin' and Slidin'" was the title of a song written by Maxwell Davis and performed by Calvin Boze and His All Stars, and released in May 1951 by Aladdin Records (3086). The song was described as "an engaging set of novelty lyrics, while combo puts down a swingy, medium shuffle".[5] Over a year earlier, this song had been recorded by Gene Phillips - Jack McVea, and released on Modern (20-733). It was a fast blues with Phillips delivering in a Louis Jordan-like style. A version by J. Lewis and Trio was released on Atlantic (927) in early 1951."
