December 4th, 1956

During a Carl Perkins recording session also involving Jerry Lee Lewis and Johnny Cash at Sun Records in Memphis, Tennessee, Elvis Presley visited the studio and jammed with Perkins and Lewis extensively with the tape recorders rolling. (Cash reportedly participated briefly in the jam before leaving the studio with his wife and daughter.)

The four men become known as "The Million Dollar Quartet", and the complete tape from this legendary session was eventually released on compact disc in 1987.
