MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) –  Elvis Presley was born 80 years ago today and
eighteen years after his birth, in 1953, Presley walked into Sun Records
in Memphis and recorded the song "My Happiness” for $4. The 78 RPM 
acetate record was his first recording, a gift for his mother Gladys. 

But, as the story goes, Presley stopped by a friend’s house to listen to the
recording and left it there. The Presley family did not have a record player,
according to Elvis Presley Enterprises, which operates Graceland.

The record has remained in his friend’s safe for decades and today, it will
be auctioned off at Graceland, the late singer’s longtime Memphis home,
along with other Presley-related memorabilia on what would have been
‘the King’s’ 80th birthday. The acetate is in original condition and it is
playable.
