The First, Last And Greatest Rock Album!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Elvis Presley (Audio CD)
Elvis Presley's first album, and the first ever rock n roll album is a stunning mix of rock, blues and country.......just perhaps the very best album ever made.
Beginning, of course, with the sensational "Heartbreak Hotel." This smoudering blues is magnificently performed, with an underlying menace of anger and depression as Elvis excells vocally, making this awesome song really really enthralling.
And that is merely the first track....."I Was The One" follows, this great ballad is sung with real emotion, and perhaps nobody at this time could pull off a vocal this good.
The legendary punch of "blue Suede Shoes" follows, whilts "Tutti Frutti" is utterly sensation: this dynamic performance is the best version of the song, ever; and really must be heard.
I could rave on for hours about this magnificent CD; plus the great bonus songs and tracks from the Sun years of 1954-55...this is just splendid, and really never bettered, by anyone at anytime. Elvis Presley is the first, last and greatest rock album of all time; no question...who or what can compare? This is essential.
