Elvis Presley: The Great Performances (CD, Australia)

(RCA-BMG Australia) 20 tracks over the decades - essential collection!*****

My involvement with this project started on a hot day in Memphis in 1954, when five boys in their late teens needed a sixth player for a football game and they drafted me, a kid still in grade school. As soon as we started playing football, I knew that one of the boys was the guy I had heard on WHBQ earlier in the week—Elvis Presley.

That was an historic week for Elvis: His first professional recording, "That's All Right (Mama)," had just been introduced on the radio. And it was an historic week for me as well because it started my twenty-three year friendship with Elvis. Even back then, Elvis was unique. He possessed both a rebel-lious Brando-like quality and a vulnerable, likeable charm. Elvis always looked for loyalty in his friends and during the early years of his career, we continued to play football. He would also invite me to late night screenings at the Memphian Theater and to his all night, amusement park parties.
Ten years later, in 1964, Elvis asked me to go to work for him and I left for Hollywood that day.

About three years ago, Andy Solt and I got together for lunch. We had originally met some years earlier while working on "Elvis On Tour" (1972) and began a friendship that has become stronger through "This Is Elvis" (1981), which we also worked on together. I told Andy of my new position with Elvis Presley Enterprises, and we started discussing possible future projects. This album and the accompanying videos are the result. It has been an honor for me to work on this project, as well as a respon-sibility to my friend Elvis, from whom I've learned so much.

Jerry Shilling, 1990

Artist description "Presley, Elvis"

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.
