Elvis Presley on love, cars and getting lonesome in 1956 interview

The disc box set contains interviews and live and studio recordings of 21-year-old Elvis before he became the legend that we know him to be.

“Some people tap their feet, some people snap their fingers,” Elvis says of his unique style of performing onstage, “and some people just sway back and forth. I just sort of do them all together, I guess.”

“I don’t smoke and I don’t drink, and I love to go to movies,” he says in the recording. “Maybe someday I’m going to have a home and a family of my own, and I’m not going to budge from it. I was an only child, but maybe my kids won’t be,” reports People.

Every Elvis admirer knows that their idol was a fan of cars and the subject wasn’t missed out in the interview.

“The first car I ever bought was the most beautiful car I’ve ever seen,” he says. “I parked it outside of my hotel the day I got it. I sat up all night just looking at it. And the next day, well, the thing caught fire and burned up on the road.”

And of course he gives a little insight into his love life.

“Am I in love? No. I thought I’ve been in love, but I guess I wasn’t. It just passed over. I guess I haven’t met the girl yet, but I will.”
