December 06 - He's Back - Elvis The New Sessions

There is a new CD just out called “Elvis: The New Sessions” and it's a follow-up to one issued earlier this year called "Elvis: The New Recordings".

From the press-release:
The latest has 20 of EP's best vocals in updated musical settings such that these songs now sound as if he just recorded them today! The new musicians on the latest overdub CD have also played on thousands of recordings, backing artists such as Aretha Franklin, Elton John, Patti Austin, Barry Manilow, Carrie Underwood, Willie Nelson, Norah Jones, Don McLean, Jaci Velasquez, Paul Simon, the Dixie Chicks and more. One of them even played for the Pope! So the sound is great.

The repertoire on the new CD runs the gamut from Memphis-style rock and blues (some hot guitar licks for sure!), to pop (with pretty strings), country (with steel, dobro, mandolin), some Latin-flavored uptempo songs (including twin trumpets), a reworked gospel track and even Elvis singing “Silent Night” accompanied by an angelic children’s choir! It's at the end of a medley that's posted here on Facebook.

01. Suspicion 02. Fountain Of Love 03. A Mess Of Blues 04. Blueberry Hill 05. It’s Now Or Never 06. Such An Easy Question 07. Is It So Strange 08. Are You Lonesome Tonight? 09. Love Me 10.
