Vintage and nearly classic
on 2 January 2010
I remember getting this as a vinyl LP for Christmas 1965 even though it had been released earlier in the year. It followed on from the Flaming Star and Summer Kisses album and was similar in that both were compilations of various rare studio tracks as well as songs that had been recorded for movies but not released at the time.
What made Elvis for Everyone relatively popular at the time was that it contained songs that had been unavailable before in any shape or form. If it had not been for back catalogue albums like this then some of these tracks might never have seen the light of day.
Elvis was only recording almost exclusively movie soundtracks at this time so the release of this album, despite some numbers dating from his pre-army days,came as welcome relief from the norm.
I seem to recall that the UK vinyl album had a different sleeve to the one displayed here which is the US version, but as far as I know the actual tracks on this CD are the same as on the original 1965 release.
