Today we are pleased to announce the addition of a Memphis Music Listening Station to the Memphis and Shelby County Room. This listening station, which contains 594 CDs, will allow easy patron access to our large archive of Memphis Music.  This listening station contains materials representing every stage of music written and recorded by Memphians and in Memphis.  From the Memphis Jug Band, to Justin Timberlake; from Memphis Minnie to Packy Axton; classical, country, jazz, soul, rockabilly, R&B and more can all be listened to and enjoyed in one spot. Additionally, many rare and out-of-print albums are included in the listening station along with local independent releases (of course, Elvis and Stax are here too!).

Feel free to browse through the Guide of available music and come by anytime to listen to some great tunes!

Happy 75th to Elvis Presley

On January 8, Elvis Presley would have celebrated his 75th birthday.  To celebrate, we created a digital display of news clippings and images of the King:

 

If you want to view all of the images from the display, click here.  There is so much more Elvis stuff that it could take years to digitize it all.  But you can come take a look whenever you like.
