sc0012032dAll Shook Up is a song recorded by Elvis Presley and composed by Otis Blackwell and Elvis Presley (apparently Elvis contributed the title).

It was a hit in the pop, R&B and country charts.

The single topped the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 on April 13, 1957, staying there for eight weeks. It also topped the Billboard R&B chart for four weeks, becoming Presley’s second single to do so, and peaked at No. 3 on the country chart.

This particular record is a 10″ sized 78 i.e. it played at 78 rpm (before 45s were introduced by competitors). It’s the only one I have left, it’s only worth about £5 but I keep it out for nostalgic reasons.
