Elvis Presley: Elvis' Christmas Album (LP)

(Rumble Records) 20 tracks

The initial reaction to the release of this album was unbelievably one of controversy. Irving Berlin was actually horrified that his "White Christmas" was being sullied by the 'vulgar kid with the gyrating pelvis,' and many others agreed. The year was 1957 and Elvis was still young (just 22) and dangerous, Jailhouse Rock had just hit the box offices and his "Hound Dog / Don't Be Cruel" single was still at the top of the charts. But despite his status as the ultimate rebel, Elvis actually managed to deliver pretty convincing versions of these Christmas classics, so much so that although Irving Berlin may still be rolling over in his grave, the album itself has taken its place as one of the best known and loved Christmas albums of all time. Featuring 9 bonus tracks, all recorded in 1957.

Naturally, "Elvis' Christmas Album" sold extremely well in the USA. On October 7, Billboard reported that pre-orders for the LP far exceeded RCA's planned production of 200,000 copies. An RCA manager called it "the biggest pre-order in the company's history". "Elvis' Christmas Album" eventually achieved gold record status.

"Elvis' Christmas Album" reached #1 on the Billboard album charts during the 1957 Christmas season. Elvis' version of 'Blue Christmas', now considered a rock'n'roll Christmas classic, is played on radio stations across the country every December.

Of course, "Elvis' Christmas Album" was reissued every Christmas season after its first release in 1957. During the 1963 Christmas season, sales of the album finally reached the 1 million dollar mark, earning it gold record status. At the time, it was Elvis' sixth gold album. In the 45 years that have passed since then, Elvis' first Christmas LP has continued to sell in a variety of repackaged records. The popularity of Elvis' first Christmas recording has outlived most of the critics who condemned it over 50 years ago.

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)!
