Holland, were recording new material with Jerry Lee Lewis, an emerging piano virtuoso, enlisted by Sam Phillips to join this session. Unexpectedly, Elvis Presley, the reigning showbiz sensation, made a visit. This impromptu jam session produced an enduring legacy that continues to inspire artists today.
