The Blues traces its musical roots to the artists enslaved in the cotton fields of America. In the 1940's and '50s, the Blues evolved with new technology to become Rhythm & Blues. Field Hollers Yield Dollars tells the uniquely American story of how Rhythm & Blues was whitewashed to become Rock & Roll.

Episode 2:

While recording R&B legends in his Memphis studio, Sam Phillips discovers his
meal ticket in a marketable white fan named Elvis Presley. Elvis begins his career
reinterpreting his favorite R&B songs, but his emergence begs the question: What was
the first Rock & Roll record and who was the first Rock Star?
