AVID Rock N Roll continues with its Four Classic Albums plus series with a re-mastered 2CD second set release from Elvis Presley complete with original artwork, liner notes and personnel details. 'King Creole'; 'G.I. Blues'; 'Blue Hawaii', 'Girls, Girls, Girls' and as a special bonus the 7'' EP 'Jailhouse Rock'.
We could have called our second Elvis set, 'Elvis At The Movies', or 'Elvis Goes to the Movies', or 'A Movie Date With Elvis' or 'Movies Right Along With Elvis'... err, perhaps not that last one... but, well, you get the picture!
It's time to forget what you may have read about the string of movies that the King made in the late 50s and 60s regarding the questionable quality of some of them. This release is about the music, and after all is said and done, that is what made Elvis, the King in the first place! So leave your celluloid prejudices at the door and step inside the auditorium and take a listen to some great music from Elvis Presley. After all, you are going to hear some of these fine Elvis classics, King Creole, Jailhouse Rock, Wooden Heart, Blue Suede Shoes, Return To Sender, You're So Square alongside some classic songs you may have forgetten you loved all along! Maybe your eyes were elsewhere while you watched the movies way back when! Can't imagine where?
