I call this my second Elvis album because my first was Elvis's Golden Records vol 1, bought in 1960. This album - then called "Elvis Rock 'N' Roll volume Two" I bought at Christmas in 1961 When I was able to spend money on LPs as I'd started work in the summer of that year. (my very first record of any sort I bought was a 78 of "All Shook Up" in 1957 when I was 11 years old)Ever since then I have had a special place in my heart for this album with it's mix of rock, blues and ballads. I still get a thrill listening to "Anyplace is Paradise" and "How's The world Treating You" "Reddy Teddy" "Rip It Up" and the rest of this classic mix of the raw pre-army Elvis. Nothing he did after leaving the army comes close to the fifties classics. If you like this you MUST get "Elvis The Fifties Masters" a five CD boxed set that is in my top ten greatest albums!
