I bought the original "Gravelands" CD back in 1997, after visiting my local shop, who was playing 'Come As You Are' over the speakers, my initial reaction was "what the hell is this" and involuntarily started to laugh !! I knew the track was Nirvana, but ELVIS singing ??? Suffice to say, i bought the CD for sheer entertainment value, got home and played it, and i suddenly realised, what i still do now, this CD (now with 18 trks)is a MASTERPIECE.
The whole CD is produced to perfection, sound quality is so crisp its an audiophiles dream, and the content nothing short of stunning, the tracks have obviously been chosen with a great consideration, it could so easily have turned into a cheesey sellout, but thankfully British reserve and all that !! Basically i have many CD`s, but this has been played regularly since 1997, and will be in the future, i cant give it a high enough recommendation, you just wont get tired of it.
Its also great to play to unsuspecting dinner guests, the look of confusion has started many a conversation. I really hope that there will be a second CD at some stage. The diversity of the tracks will appeal to all generations, which is a bonus. If nothing else it will bring a smile to your face time after time.

Everything about that Hillbilly Shaker Presley has now faded into Pastiche. in the north of Ireland we've had Frank Chisum and more recently Jim"The King" Brown. I recently saw The King play in a local Hotel and frankly as Elvis Impersonators go he blew me away. I was introduced to this album in late '98 and was intrigued with the idea of Elvis who has died( hasn't he?) covering songs from other artists who have also died.
the album opens with Nirvana's " Come as you are" with one of the best bass lines in history and the strange thing is that it works! We are then treated to a version of Joy Division's "Love will tear us apart" exactly the some keyboard refrain but with beefy geetars. The next song is "Song to the Siren" by Tim Buckley 60 s troubadour and father to jeff (unfortunately also demised) Jim does a fine version with beautiful guitar and harp in a song also covered by Robert Plant a few years ago.wethen move ono Thin Lizzy's "Whiskey in the Jar" a classic old Irish Tune. Very rarely will you be given suh a sumptuous and diverse palate of music. other artists who get the King makeover include AC/DC (Whole Lotta Rosy) Marvin Gaye(I heard it thru the grapevine), Jimi Hendrix ( Voodoo Chile) T Rex (20th century boy)The Sweet ( Blockbuster)
Elvis even covers himself (That's alright Mama) Anyway take it from me this is a must for all fans of the King and you'll get introduced to a few new artists. Buy it!

This album is just great - in fact its quite spooky how similar this BRITISH guy sounds like Elvis. I predict that the American audience will go absolutely potty for Jimmy The King Brown.
The difference between this guy and others is that Jimmy sounds just like elvis down to every little vocal trait and puts on a mean live show too.
In addition this is an album of non-Elvis stuff, songs that he may (or may not) have recorded if he was still around.
All songs are covers of Ex music stars hence the title Gravelands. Most songs here are brilliantly sung, backed and produced.
- come as you are - whole lotta rosie - piece of my heart - voodoo child - are phenomonal. there are a couple of tracks that just don't suit his voice like - dock of the bay and no woman no cry but everything else is well worth a buy for anyone not only Elvis fans....
My #1 CD...... ps if you know of any live shows let us know !!

First saw The King live when supporting the Fun Lovin Criminals. First gig I have ever been to where the warm up act was being screamed at for an encore. He had the place jumping. There were no copies of his album for sale so I found it at Amazon. When it arrived I was not disappointed. Sorry to all Nirvana fans, actually no I'm not, but The King's rendition of Come As You Are is better than the original. I feel I ought to point out that I hate Elvis' music, mainly because it was blasted at me when throughout my childhood, but I love this album. His versions of Janis Joplin's, Phil Lynott's and Marc Bolan's songs are all better than the orginals too. Very good humoured album and very well supported by a very talented backing band, although the guitarist with the mullet needs a haircut. The live recordings on Gravelands are excellent. I'm hooked.

Jimmy the King used to be a Dublin postman. Jimmy the King used to be another Elvis impersonator (albeit a very good one). Then one day his promoter suggested that he branch out, to get away from the stereotypical Elvis tracks. And branch out he did. This album contains eighteen covers of a wide spectrum of songs, all tied together with one theme - all the original artists are dead (hence the witty album title). If you could not imagine Nirvana's 'Come As You Are' performed by anyone other than Cobain and his buddies, or countless grunge tribute bands, then the first track on the album will blow you away. And the surprises keep on coming, from Bob Marley to PhilLynott to AC/DC to Presley himself (he does a few bona fide Elvis numbers just to keep the purists happy.) If it sounds like 18 tracks of unbearable cheesy pastiche - it isn't. His backing group are absolutely superb, especially the bassist, and his live performances are truly uplifting. Good fun, good clean quality fun - and it all sounds wonderful.
