I am quite shocked to be the first to write a review on the "King of Rock & Roll". This man had an amazing life story. Growing up poor in Tupelo, Mississippi, he listened to a lot of black singers, which is where he got his sound from. He was considered very controversial for the day.
He later enlisted in the Army. He also became an actor, but his real love was music. He bought a mansion and named it "GraceLand", which is named after his mother, which he loved dearly. He's like the "Michael Jackson" of the 50's, 60's and some of the 70's until he dies in 1977.
Everything on the album is his best. If you are a music enthusiast, you should check this out. You won't be sorry.
I just can't believe that no one has ever reviewed this album. If you are a fan of "The King", you'll love this album! Everything you can imagine from the man from Tupelo, Mississippi is here. This would be the best of the best from Elvis.
I'm sure everyone has heard about the life he had. Being managed by Col. Tom Parker, Graceland (named for his mother), and sounding bluesy when you were supposed too. Young girls loved him, older folks hated him, Elvis was quinessentially Rock amd Roll in its infancy.
My mother has all his albums, so I grew up listening to him. It remind me of my childhood when my mom would play his records while doing housework. She regrets not ever getting to go to his concert. It would have been his last before he died.
