Description

“If I had any ambition, it was to be as good as Arthur Crudup.” Elvis Presley

In 1946, ‘So Glad Your Mine’ reached No 3 and ‘Ethel Mae’ made it to No 4. ‘That’s All Right’ was cut in September 1946 doing only modest business at the time. Later it would be taken up by Elvis Presley, who made it a national hit. Crudup had arrived. Disputes over royalties caused him to avoid the recording studio, but he became a valued performer - never short of work but always, it seemed, short of money.
