It was 56 years ago Saturday (January 12th, 1957) that Elvis Presley recorded "All Shook Up," which went on to become his sixth Number One hit, topping the charts for nine weeks. Presley recorded the song at Radio Recorders in Hollywood, during a three-day session, which included both gospel recordings and songs eventually featured in his second motion picture, Loving You.
Presley and his band, which included guitarist Scotty Moore, bassist Bill Black, drummer DJ Fontana, and backing vocalists the Jordanaires, took ten takes to perfect the song. The unique tapping heard on the track is Presley's hand slapping the back of his Martin acoustic guitar, with his ring finger accentuating the beat.
