The story of this compilation begins with a decades old myth; the ''mystery singer'' on a 10'' acetate demo played to Elvis by Sam Phillips in June of 1954. Phillips, who was unable to ascertain the name of the singer, asked Elvis to sing the song as a debut record. The young, unknown Elvis was daunted by the performance. After attempting to record the song, Elvis felt he could not do it justice, and went on to record ''That's All Right''. The demo's existence became an urban myth. The singer was finally identified as Jimmy Sweeney in early 2017 by writer Chris Kennedy, whose suspicions were confirmed by multiple sources, including Jimmy's daughter Eugenia. Sweeney's masterpiece will finally be released under his own name on this compilation. In addition to ''Without You'', the album features some of Sweeney's best recordings, many of which were never released to the public. SIDE A 1. Without You - Jimmy Sweeney 2.
