One night in the summer of ’53, as Elvis was sitting in the back of the “Flamingo,” a Beale Street nightclub, a young black pianist, Billy “The Kid” Emerson, approached him and they spent some time talking about music. .

On other Elvis visits to the Flamingo, Emerson played several Big Joe Turner songs. 

Emerson then told Elvis the story of a song he had written while listening to Turner.

 It was “When It Rains, It Really Pours“, which had a powerful impact on Elvis. That song, Emerson commented, could be a bestseller and he wanted Elvis to record it. 

And Elvis did it.

Note: Elvis was recording his last session at Sun “When It Rains It Really Pours” when Phillips received the phone call announcing that Presley was now an exclusive artist for RCA Victor, and of course, the session was aborted. .

However, Elvis told Sam he would record it and recorded it on February 24, 1957. 

You can hear it on the excellent 1965 album “Elvis For Everyone.”
