Variety’s Reviews of Elvis Presley Records in the Fifties

Elvis Presley: “I Want You, I Need You, I Love You”-“My Baby left Me” (RCA Victor). The current phenom of the music biz, Elvis Presley probably could have a hit if his name were on a blank disk. This coupling is sure of a big ride even though the material is not up to the level of his “Heartbreak Hotel” smash. “I Want You” is a slow ballad with a strong beat and Presley belts it with his identifying vocalisthenics. Flip, in a traditional blues vein, also gets an energetic workout.

Rolling Stones‘ guitarist Keith Richards made headlines when he told Esquire magazine what he thought of The Beatles’ “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” by saying “Some people think it’s a genius album, but I think it’s a mishmash of rubbish, kind of like Satanic Majesties. Oh, if you can make a load of shit, so can we.”

Guitarist Kimberley Rew sold the rights to his song, “Walking On Sunshine”, as well as the rest of his back catalog, to music company BMG for 16 million dollars. The record was a #9 hit for Katrina And The Waves in 1985. By comparison, In 1973, RCA paid $5.4 million ($28,826,391.89 in 2015 adjusted dollars) for Elvis’ back catalog from that year to his Sun Records recordings.

RCA / Legacy released an Elvis Presley anthology called “Way Down in the Jungle Room”, a two-disc box-set featuring songs he recorded at his home studio during the final 18 months of his life.

Nina your Daily Elvis blogger recommends listening to the Boy from Tupelo and then this Sony release of the FTD, BMG and original RCA releases. For anyone in the public or hardcore fan, who really wants to understand, Elvis Presley the man, who became the first and last entertainer everyone around the world could talk about.

Not to mention that Elvis was the number one reason people learned english in the pre-internet era, and in the 1950s, Adult English speakers did not understand what Elvis was saying, they were too focused on the sex, and scared about the willingness of women to respond to Elvis in public, and fearful of that white man singing black music. Imagine (cue The Beatles), if the 1950s had realized that Elvis was singing women’s songs, it was his vulnerablity more than his bravado that was the source of his female appeal, while his male fans identified with the swagger; Sun Elvis was young and proving himself, at RCA, Elvis displaced the establishment, becoming his own industry; his music of rockabilly became rock an roll when popular, then, he didn’t just make movies, he was a genre all his own, doing world music in the 1960s before it was a 1990s genre, of a return to folk, post disco and soul, stadium rockers, power ballads and music video replacing radio.

after the 1950 Elvis Atomic Singer and the The 1960s British Wave of Cliff Richards, The Beatles and The Rolling Stone; with punk and heavy metal, post disco and soul, stadium rockers, power ballads and music video replacing radio. new waving music so digital smooth it lost the beat rap, in an east vs west wave across the normally north south USA culture divide, became so popular that vocals returned as hip hop.

Chicago singer/bassist Peter Cetera attended a Cubs-Dodgers baseball game in Los Angeles, where four Marines who disapproved of his long hair beat him so badly that his jaw was broken and he lost four teeth. He spent five hours in surgery and two days in intensive care. The incident had an effect on Cetera’s career and, according to him, an impact on his singing style. “With my jaw wired together, I went on the road and I was actually singing through my clenched jaw, which, to this day, is still the way I sing.”

Led Zeppelin started three days of recording and mixing sessions at A&R Studios in New York City, which included the recording of ‘Heartbreaker’ and various other parts for new tracks for the group’s forthcoming second album.

Ben Weisman (November 16, 1921 – May 20, 2007) was an American composer significant for having written more songs recorded by Elvis Presley (fifty seven) than any other songwriter in history. The Mad Professor as Weisman was nicknamed by Elvis, worked with the King from 1956 (“First in Line“) to 1971 (“Change of Habit“). Their early association (1957–62) produced many of the most powerful rockers and poignant ballads in Presley’s repertoire, including “Got a Lot o’ Livin’ to Do“, “Follow That Dream“, “Rock-A-Hula Baby“, “Crawfish“, “As Long As I Have You“, “Pocketful of Rainbows” and “Fame and Fortune“.

Elvis Presley Collections – The Major Sets

During Elvis Presley’s career began in the era of singles,extended singles with 4 songs and LP albums.

Before the Military disrupted his unprecedented consistent charting and unheard of chart domination, across the genres, but also singles, extended plays and LPs, Elvis had 2 LP collections of hit singles.

 

In the 1960s, he had 2 LP collections of hit songs, and, in the 1970s,

RCA released a volume 1 and 2 box sets with 4 LPs, Elvis’ Gold Worldwide Hits

We all got to hear which Elvis we had in common and some regional variations around the globe.

One of the sets even included an envelope with a 1 by 2 inch swatch of fabric from a part of Elvis’ clothes. A mix of personal garb, and movie costumes – and astonishing, Elvis included most of the 1968 Special clothes – which were luckily saved and not cut apart. But imagine, opening your box and finding a black leather patch.

and the greatest hits set was completed after his death with the final singles to the First Grieve wave re-chartings. The King was dead. Long live the king.

In the 1990s, The Elvis Presley catalog underwent a digital re-mastering. Elvis Presley got a rare “the artist treatment” with three decade themed Studio Masters.

The 1950s box set was the first release of Elvis’ first demo audition attempt for Sun Records – Elvis’ own disc, given to his high school pal, who had paid the fee and had the disc the whole time.

The 196os set included the studio masters with a selection of movie song, and spawned a sequel set.

The 1970s set was divided between studio and concert recordings.
