Elvis Presley: Elvis' Golden Records Vol.1 (CD)

(1995/BMG) 14 Tracks - Elvis in the 90s series! - The original 1958 RCA album on CD in mono!& ,Booklet folder with lyrics!
& ,-
This album is comprised of fourteen Elvis Presley records that have sold over a million copies.
A recapitulation of how these hits were produced will reveal, among other interesting facts,
how Presley's writing and selecting many of them played a major role in their success.
& ,
His very first big single record for RCA Victor was Heartbreak Hotel.
Elvis discovered this song himself. During a personal appearance in Florida, he was given the tune by Mae
Axton, an accomplished writer of country-western songs. He liked it immediately but sought to get the more professional opinion of RCA Victor's Artists &&, Repertoire Manager, Steve Sholes, who became a close musical advisor and chief pilot of his recording career.
Sholes agreed the tune was perfect for Presley, and it was recorded in the RCA Victor studios
in Nashville on February 10, 1956.

The recording session which produced I Want You, I Need You, I Love You was preceded by a near disaster for Elvis. He was appearing in Texas then, and in order to reach the Nashville studios in time,
he had to charter a plane. Engine trouble developed, causing the plane to fall steadily, and it
dropped to only a few feet above the ground before the difficulty was repaired.

Although shaken by the experience, Presley managed to record the song with his usual feeling and
confidence. It was on this date, also, that he had the backing of a vocal group for the first time.
The singers were Gordon Stoker (now leader of the Jordanaires) plus Ben and Brock
Speer of the Speer Family, well-known sacred artists.
The session was held on Easter Sunday, April 11, 1956.

Elvis Aaron Presley - The King of Rock'n'Roll

(January 8, 1935, Tupelo, MS – August 16, 1977, Memphis, TN) 
 
Elvis Presley (full name Elvis Aaron Presley) is the most outstanding personality in showbiz ever since, and the most popular entertainer the world has ever seen! His musical influence within music history and its following generations of musicians is still unbroken. His huge 'Blast-Off' in the mid-1950s, the rising star from a simply called 'Hillbilly Cat' (at Sun Records) to a lascivious Rock'n'Roll singer with charisma, a male sex symbol (then at RCA Victor) soon popularized him as "The King of Rock'n'Roll" or simply "The King".
 
His first cut within his tremendous career happened between October 1958 and March 1960 while Elvis was on duty with the U.S. Army and stationed in Germany. It was there in 1959 when he met his later wife Priscilla Beaulieu at age 14. Elvis and Priscilla married on May 1, 1967 in Las Vegas (divorce in 1973). Elvis evolved into an all-around entertainer after his Army service and started starring in Hollywood films. 33 movies in total, including the two concert documentaries 'That's The Way It Is' and 'On Tour'. He again shook the world with his 1968 NBC Comeback TV Special after his movie period without any stage appearances.
 
This TV special included the first ever unplugged session presented together with musicians from the early days such as Scotty Moore and D.J. Fontana. 1973 saw THE TV mega event at all: Elvis Presley, 'Aloha From Hawaii via Satellite'! Elvis' Honolulu appearance, the first time that a show was broadcasted worldwide via satellite! He was ahead of his time! Elvis Presley had 148 US single chart hits, including some so-called double-sider when A- and B-side both hit the charts like his 1956 smash 'Don't Be Cruel b/w Hound Dog', plus 15 EP hits between 1956 and 1977. Two billion of sold media and sound carriers by Elvis Presley is the estimated number! He received 14 Grammy nominations until 1978 and three Grammy for his Gospel interpretations. Elvis was the youngest artist when honored with the Bing Crosby Award (Lifetime Achivement Award) in 1971.
 
He is presented in 5 Halls of Fame (Rock'n'Roll, Rockabilly, Country, Blues and Gospel). Six of his song interpretations are collected in the Grammy Hall of Fame. On top of it all Elvis Presley got the most gold and platinum records and a Diamond-Award. He definetly is the 'Best selling solo artist in U.S. History' (RIAA – Record Industry Association of America)! Elvis Presley CD albums, vinyl records as LPs or singles at 45rpm - Bear Family offers a huge number of various Elvis Presley CDs, vinyl-LPs and 45rpm singles, vinyl- and CD box sets, books and mags, DVDs, unique and extraordinairy memorabilia! Let's say it in the words of one of Elvis sixties album title: There is "Something For Everybody"! And hey, you name it! Elvis Presley is the King of Rock'n'Roll, the biggest icon in showbusiness, and a great person who lives on forever!
Bear Family Records treats his legacy with the most respect and an optimum capacity of expert knowledge.
