Here are some clips of Martin's 50's RCA recordings:
"My Boy Elvis"
"Drugstore Rock and Roll," her biggest hit, recorded in Nashville.
The video offers detailed reflections from Martin herself. Not everything here is factually correct. Chet Atkins never produced Elvis, but played on some of his sessions. But it's true Chet produced Martin's Nashville sessions. Elvis's producer, Steve Sholes, produced other Martin RCA material, in New York.
Finally, here's Martin onstage with her first idol: R&B great Ruth Brown from 2006, a year before The Blanco Sessions was recorded. The big guy at the mike is Robert "Big Sandy" Williams. At the drums is co-producer Bobby Trimble. Brown died later that year; Janis passed in September of 2007, four months after the sessions.
