Biography

Elvis Aaron Presley is one of the biggest-selling artists of all-time, but mere numbers cannot begin to explain the colossal cultural impact he had in the mid-20th Century. He was a central figure in the transformation of the grey, conservative 50s into the technicolor 60s through the liberalizing effect of rock and pop music. Frank Sinatra had proved extremely popular in the 40s with young ... Read more in Amazon's Elvis Presley Store

Amazon.co.uk Review

The King's first album of all-new material following his release from the Army, Elvis Is Back!, is arguably the most fully realised album of his career. It's a slightly different Elvis here than the one who was drafted, slightly tamer (though he looks like a Martian on the cover), jumping from style to style--from R&B (a definitive cover of Clyde McPhatter & the Drifters' "Such a Night") to pure pop (a cover of Ral Donner's "The Girl of My Best Friend" with a Hank Garland guitar sound that presaged Mersey beat) to doo-wop (the gorgeous "Soldier Boy") to some of the hardest blues of his career (several cuts here, including an incredible version of Lowell Fulsom's "Reconsider Baby"). He even makes Peggy Lee's "Fever" his own here. No hit singles, just a great LP--and no indication of the "movie years" dross soon to follow. --Bill Holdship

*** THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE 2011 'LEGACY' REISSUE ***

Conscripted into the American Army in March 1958 and discharged two years later, Sergeant Presley was a mere 18 days back in the USA when RCA practically frog marched him into their Nashville Studios to cut some new material for a highly expectant public. So it's perhaps strange now in hindsight to think that 1960's "Elvis Is Back!" - his most beloved of studio albums - only went to Number 2 on release. But I can assure you that there is nothing second-place about this 50th Anniversary reissue. It's a gem. Here are the details...

Released 8 March 2011 in the USA (28 February in the UK) - RCA/Legacy 88697 85300 2 contains 2 whole albums and 12 x 7" single-sides (5 of which reached Number 1).
Its 36 STEREO tracks break down as follows:

Disc 1 (50:43 minutes):
1. Make Me Know It
2. Fever
3. The Girl Of My Best Friend
4. I Will Be Home Again
5. Dirty, Dirty Feeling
6. Soldier Boy [Side 2]
7. Such A Night
8. It Feels So Right
9. Girl Next Door Went A' Walking
10. Like A Baby
11. Reconsider Baby
Tracks 1 to 12 are the US LP "Elvis Is Back!" - released 8 April 1960 on RCA Victor LPM-2231 [Mono] and LPS-2231 [Stereo]
Tracks 13 and 14 are "Stuck On You" and "Fame And Fortune" - the A&B-sides of RCA Victor 47-7740 - released 23 March 1960
Tracks 15 and 16 are "It's Now Or Never" and "A Mess Of Blues" - the A&B sides of RCA Victor 47-7777 - released 5 July 1960
Tracks 17 and 18 are "Are You Lonesome Tonight?" and "I Gotta Know" - the A&B sides of RCA Victor 47-7810 - released 1 November 1960
Track 19 is "Surrender" - the A-side of RCA Victor 47-7850 - released 7 February 1961

Disc 2 (39:23 minutes):

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
To follow the recent Legacy Editions of FROM ELVIS IN MEMPHIS and ON STAGE comes this fulfilling coupling of the triumphant ELVIS IS BACK! from 1960 partnered with 1961's less well-acclaimed SOMETHING FOR EVERYBODY, both albums being fleshed out with related singles, including 'It's Now Or Never' and that stonking double-sided hit 'His Latest Flame'/'Little Sister'.

Admittedly, if you've already bought the single CDs of these two albums, you may not really want to invest in this, as apart from a brand new booklet, there is nothing in the way of session outtakes or unreleased masters included. However, what this set does deliver is a compact snapshot of Elvis Presley at the top of his game, which might also encourage you to take a closer appreciation of the SOMETHING FOR EVERYBODY album, which I personally have overlooked in the past.

ELVIS IS BACK!, Presley's first album released after his army discharge, is a recognised classic, within which he tackled a bewildering array of material with disarming ease. From the upbeat 'Make Me Know It'; through to the slinky, sultry 'Fever'; and on to the suggestive 'Such A Night'; before closing out with the bluesy 'Reconsider Baby', Presley covered all the bases. Even the single B-sides 'Fame And Fortune', 'A Mess Of Blues' and the jaunty 'I Gotta Know' were far from throwaways, providing beautifully contrasting accompaniments to 'Stuck On You', 'It's Now Or Never' and 'Are You Lonesome Tonight?' respectively. Arguably, perhaps not until the Memphis sessions in early 1969, would Presley ever have quite such a productive and thoroughly rewarding time in the studio.

Format: Audio CD
There are many who'd say that this is Presley's best album. If not that it must at least be amongst his best though it could be said that albums weren't really the man's forte - he's more remembered for his singles. It was the first album to emerge after his stint in the US Army - hence the title - and, alongside a whole host of other tracks many of which were to be released as singles plus the tracks that went to form the follow up album "Something for Everybody", it was the result of just a few days recording with the Nashville session team including Scotty Moore and drummer DJ Fontana.

What it isn't is a rock'n'roll album. The most out and out rocker on it, "Dirty, Dirty Feeling" is good but lightweight. The track that actually rocks the most in the set is "Such a Night" originally recorded by the Clyde McPhatter version of the Drifters. Elvis takes this song and pretty well wrings its neck with a scorching latin version that doesn't take prisoners. Elsewhere we have the opener, "Make me Know It", which is reminiscent of some of the Sun Carl Mann tracks - pop more than rock but oodles of charm - plus "The Girl Next Door Went A'Walking" which is also poppy with a hint of rock.

No, it's abundantly clear that the powers that be, and whether that was Colonel Parker or the RCA bigwigs we may never know, had decided that the route forward was via mainstream pop. That said there were some delightful exceptions to this approach in the shape of two slow and very deliberate blues, Jesse Stone's "Like a Baby" and Lowell Fulson's classic, "Reconsider Baby" plus a third track, "It Feels So Right" which was also imbued with a hefty blues feel slightly softened by the presence of the Jordanaires.
