Description:
Liner Note Author: Colin Escott. This was Elvis Presley's second album release--but only his first TRUE album, as his debut consisted of the Sun sessions. This album is a blueprint for Elvis's musical career--he would go, in varying degrees, on the paths he set upon here. Out-and-out rockers ("Rip It Up," "Long Tall Sally"), country ("How's the World Treating You"), pop ("Don't Be Cruel"), mushy ballads ("Old Shep"), earthy rhythm & blues ("Too Much," "Hound Dog"), along with southern gospel, made up the sort of material Elvis would do all his life. He sings with authority and insolent swagger on the rockers (listen to the angst-ridden, manic "Paralyzed") and heartfelt vulnerability and soulfulness on the ballads (the stark "Love Me Tender"). ELVIS stands as one of the best rock & roll albums of the '50s, and one of the King's best, as well.
