In the box set Elvis Aron Presley there was a section Elvis at the piano.
What was the very first song Elvis recorded with him at the piano?

It's rumoured that Elvis played piano on Trying to Get to You, Lawdy Miss Clawdy and Old Shep. Those would be the first three (in that order) if true. I don't think it's him on Lawdy Miss Clawdy, but do think it's possible on the other two. Anyone know?

I do not know if he played Lawdy Miss Clawdy in the recording session but you could see and hear that he knew how to play it in the movie Change Of Habit. Same style playing with Blueberry Hill live in 1977.

It is no rumor with Old Shep since his playing was stated on the back of lpm-1382 ELVIS his second album.

So anyone decided on the first? Trying to Get to You perhaps?

I finally did my own research and thiis what I found out from Last Train To Memphis
On p. 205 on the TTGTY session, 'even with the addition of Johnny Bernero on drums and Elvis chroding on piano.'
p.335 ' he played piano on this number [ OLD SHEP] for the first time on an RCA session.

So TJ was right if Gurnalnick was accurate.
