The first record Elvis Presley ever made is to be sold at auction.

In June 1953, an 18-year-old Presley went to the Memphis Recording Service to record My Happiness and That's When Your Heartaches Begin onto acetate.

He wanted to find out what his voice sounded like on record and paid 4 dollars for the session.

He returned to record sessions for Sun Records the following year and went on to become the "king of rock 'n' roll". The auction will take place in January.

It will be one of 68 rare artefacts to be auctioned at his former home of Graceland in Memphis.
