Elvis Presley: The Complete G.I. Blues Sessions Vol.1 (CD)

(AR) 26 tracks/takes​ 1960 (56:57)

On March 20, 1960 Elvis travelled to Nashville, to hold the first session after his army discharge.
The results of this and the following session (April 3rd, 1960) shoot him back in the charts again. RCA already had 1.275.077 pre-orders for Elvis' first post-army single release. Although he hadn't recorded it yet ! Two years in the army hadn't changed his success. He was back in business and the Colonel wouldn't give him time to rest.

On March 26, 1960 the now slightly tamer Rock-Rebel appeared at "Frank Sinatra's" ABC TV show where he introduced two of his new songs : "Fame And Fortune" and "Stuck On You" (The taped special was aired on ABC on May 8, 1960).

But beside of his singing career Elvis also had a number of movie contracts on hand. The first film after his duty was "G.I. Blues" which featured Elvis in his role as a U.S. Army soldier in Germany. Paramount wanted to release a soundtrack album with the film, so Elvis had to record quite a number of songs prior to the movie production start on May 2nd.

So, on April 27. 1960 Elvis entered the RCA Studios in Hollywood for the first time to record the "G.I. Blues" soundtrack material. The session lasted into the morning hours of April 28. The sessionwork done at this occation will be documented with this new three CDs collector's series. You can also hear Elvis using some german phrases like "Play it kind of schneller", "Was, was, was" or "Ach so" !

On May 6, 1960 Elvis returned to the studio to record overdubs and flickers for the previously recorded songs. Unfortunatly, we do not have these overdub sessions available yet. But the basic sessionwork is contained. Enjoy the king at work !

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.
