Controversy Rages Over New 'Elvis' Recordings

1/13/2011 4:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained a 30-second clip from what could be a historic recording of Elvis & Jerry Lee Lewis back in 1960 -- their only duet in existence -- but there's a problem ... some people claim it ain't legit.



The clip allegedly features Elvis and Jerry Lee Lewis shooting the breeze at Jerry's house -- and based on the audio, Jerry's a big fan of the King.

A guy named Rod Lambert from Nashville tells TMZ, he bought the tape over ten years ago at a yard sale ... and only recently discovered that he could have a piece of rock and roll history on his hands.

An audio forensics expert verified that the voices on the tape were indeed Elvis and Lewis ... but Lambert -- who posted more of the clip on his website -- tells us, the company in charge of Elvis' catalog denied it was really the rock legend.

Lambert claims the full 30-minute version of the tape contains some pretty explicit dialogue -- and although Elvis doesn't say much ... according to Lambert, Lewis wasn't so cautious, saying things like, “If you don’t like Jerry’s peaches, then get your f**kin’ ass away from my tree."

Check out the clip for yourselves and decide.

ok one people...I LOVE MJ but he was the KING OF POP...ELVIS was the KING OF ROCK N ROLL. Just how it is. Born and raised in Memphis, saw Elvis couple of times in concert. My opinion its him for sure. But really all you ELVIS bashers saying MJ is the King...it was two different errors, two different genres. They are both KINGS in my book.

if this was elvis, which does not sound like him and i've been listening to his interviews MANY TIMES OVER for 20years, this would have been around 1976 or 1977 - now way is this elvis in 1960...... ...the only thing that makes this legit is, that someone faking it would have been plain stupid to pick 1960...... as the year ...so that's the only mystery to me at this point.

Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis dueted on the Sun recording "Million Dollar Quartet." The other two members were Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash. It was all ad hoc, but man oh man, them boys were tearing it up on some great gospel songs.

Come on guys, not only is that not Elvis, that is definitely not Jerry Lee Lewis!! It sounds NOTHING like him! This supposed "Jerry Lee" sounds like he's from New York or something! Go watch a couple old videos of Jerry Lee Lewis from the 50's and 60's and you tell me if it's the same voice. Don't think so.

Jerry Lee's double cousin is like a father to me & I've been around the Lewis & Gilley family for years. I can't speak for Elvis' voice on this tape, but I can confirm to you that this is not Jerry Lee's voice! It's not even a close match! Someone got ripped off!
