Elvis Presley: The Wonder Of You (CD)

Nach dem erfolgreichen »If I Can Dream«, das erst im letzten Jahr erschien, folgt 2016 mit »The Wonder Of You« bereits das zweite Elvis-Presley-Album zusammen mit dem Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Auch für »The Wonder Of You« gruben das Londonor Orchester und die Produzenten Don Reedman und Nick Patrick wieder tief in Presleys gigantischem Nachlass. Insgesamt 15 Songs schafften es schließlich in die Auswahl, die dann in den legendären Abbey Road Studios nachorchestriert wurden. Mit dabei sind weniger bekannte Songs und Hits des King Of Rock’n’Roll, darunter »Amazing Grace«, »Always On My Mind«, »I’ve Got A Thing About You Baby«, »Kentucky Rain«, das namensgebende »The Wonder Of You« und viele mehr. Einen Höhepunkt bietet außerdem das Lied »Just pretend«, ein Duett mit dem deutschen Schlagerstar Helene Fischer. Bei allen Stücken ergänzte das Royal Philharmonic Orchestra lediglich die Orchesterparts. Elvis’ Stimme steht also weiterhin im Vordergrund der Aufnahmen.

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!
