Elvis at his amazing, magical best.
on 18 February 2002
Elvis at his amazing, magical best. Collected here are his top hits and most famous cuts from 1957/8... Each track is pure Rock'n'Roll in all its forms from electric energy in A Big Hunk o' Love, soulful blues in One Night, or smoochie sexy doo-wop in Don't. Elvis turns in a complete breathtaking performance on each track that explains exactly why he was 'The King'! His subtlety of voice, clarity of diction, tonal breadth and musical range within the tag of Rock'n'Roller almost mock the term. But it is the sheer power of the performance that grabs one and embeds this album as the greateast ever collection of 50s hits. The cover too of course is probably the most famous album cover in the World with Elvis in his gold lame suite. A golden performance from the golden man himself. Don't miss it.
