This film looks behind the facts and between the lines and attempts to discover Why? and How? Why was Rock n Roll invented in Memphis by a quiet young man with a passion for all types of music? How did the events that led up to that fateful session on 5th July 1954 conspire to create a brand new music and a brand new way of life for all those who came along in its wake? With contributions from those who were there at the time and from others who have studied the subject in depth, and with rare footage and photographs, and music from those pivotal sessions and from subsequent recording dates, and with a host of other features, this film goes some way to discovering the Why and the How.
