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

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow great start to the collection 3 Jan 2005
Format:Audio CD
Just played this excellently packaged CD - packaged as the original black vinyl records with the orinigal covers from both UK and America- The CD is excellent quality with the brilliant 'Jailhouse Rock' followed by 'Treat me Nice' - as an added bonus we also get the movie version of 'Treat me Nice' (and I must say my preferred version) - if this is the quality of the collection then I can't wait to hear the rest.

5.0 out of 5 stars The King Is Back! 7 April 2005
Format:Audio CD
Not many singles have 3 great songs on nowdays and it's a pleasure to hear it's number one again! Jailhouse Rock is one of the greatest Rock N Roll songs of all time if not the. Treat Me Nice is also a great Rock N Roll song too that have two versions including on this cd, many prefer the movie version of Treat Me Nice which i could agree with. In the US Jailhouse Rock was number one for 7 weeks while Treat Me Nice hit #18 on the B-Side chart, which the UK didn't have!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wanna get my kicks 21 Mar 2005
Format:Audio CD
The composers of 'Jailhouse Rock', Leiber and Stoller, apparently penned its homoerotic lyrics as revenge on Elvis for, in their view, ruining the duo's earlier classic 'Hound Dog.'
Whether Elvis was aware of the song's undertones or not, he delivered one of the most electrifying vocal performances in rock music history. No-one else before or since could have handled this song with such aplomb. Add to that some of the most distinctive guitar chords ever laid down, and the dramatic drumming, and it all adds up to one of the best things Elvis ever recorded.

5.0 out of 5 stars ELVIS : ARTIST OF THE CENTURY 10 Jan 2005
Format:Audio CD
I've just learned ELVIS is #1 in UK with "Jailhouse Rock". What ccould I say ? It's a classic that I'm listening, at last, once a week since more than 40 years. Long live the King. ELVIS, you will surprise me again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Release of the Jailhouse Rock EP 5 July 2007
By A Fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a re-release the Jailhouse Rock EP on CD. It includes songs from the movie. The EP was originally released in 1957 and went to number 1 on the EP chart. It would sell millions of copies, eventually being certified MULTI-PLATINUM by the RIAA. The title song, Jailhouse Rock went to number 1 on the singles chart and stayed there for 6 weeks! (You're So Square) Baby I Don't Care made the R&B chart, peaking at 14. This is an excellent EP and a must for Elvis fans!
