Various - Bear Family Records: The Elvis Presley Connection Vol.1 (CD)

1-CD (Digipac) with 36-page booklet - 33 Tracks - Total playing time: 76:00 

•  An extremely unique compilation of originals and rare cover versions of famous Elvis tunes!
•  This first volume puts the spotlight on songs that Elvis also recorded in-between 1954 and 1958.
•  Special rare recordings are included such as demos, live recordings from the decade, and unheard material.
•  Some of Elvis' colleagues at SUN like Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Sonny Burgess, Vernon Taylor and Mack Allen Smith are also included!
•  The compilation also presents rare British Rock 'n' Rollers with their versions of Elvis songs!
•  We have of course some originals that Elvis influenced. The Eagles with Tryin' To Get To You and Freddie Bell's version of Hound Dog!
•  Some of the tracks never appeared on CD before! There's Carl Perkins live on TV in 1956 with Blue Suede Shoes. Mickie Most with Paralyzed, recorded in South Africa and Dorothy Collins live at 'Your Hit Parade'!
•  Crooners, rockers, R&B acts, all influenced by Elvis Presley, plus songs that Elvis influenced himself!

Where did young Elvis Presley got his inspirations from? 
This is the main question behind the concept for this compilation. Elvis Presley's musical style and his stage performance was as unique as it can be but even Elvis Presley is not free from influences by other musicians and situations! We want to light up its darkness around this question with this first volume of the Elvis Presley connection and we did find musical answers!

How much did Elvis Presley influence the music world in the 1950s?
This is the next question we examine with this compilation. How did other performers react on Elvis Presley in the 50s, also those who hailed from other genres like pop or jazz? How got musicians from other countries than the US triggered by Elvis' blast in '56? Listen to this unique compilation and you get the answers!

Rare tracks
Many rare recordings are compiled here, some for the first time on CD! We have demos by Clyde Stacy and Mack Allen Smith (rare SUN demo)! We have rare versions of Elvis songs from British and American low budget labels like Loren Becker, Hank Smith aka George Jones, or Paul Rich. There are original 1950s live recordings by Carl Perkins, Dorothy Collins and Lucy Lynn. Originals later covered by Elvis Presley are also included, for example the rare originals Hot Dog by Young Jessie, David Hill's All Shook Up, and Just Because by The Shelton Brothers. Of course there are also well-known recordings such as Roy Hamilton's I'm Gonna Sit Right Down And Cry Over You or Vince Everett's version of Baby Let's Play House he had recorded together with Elvis' musicians Scotty Moore and Bill Black! Included is a booklet with notes to each single song and many color photos and illustrations!

8 Jan 2020

Und wieder sucht die Bärenfamilie nach ganz besonderen, neuen Kult-Musik-Honigtöpfen und wird bei ELVIS PRESLEYs Vorbildern und Nachahmern fündig, welche die Grundlage für eine neue CD-Serie ihres reichhaltigen Oeuvres historischer Aufnahmen ist.

FAZIT: „The Elvis Presley Connection, Vol. 1 – 33 Roots And Covers Of Elvis Presley“ und „The Elvis Presley Connection, Vol. 2 – 33 Roots And Covers Of Elvis Presley“ aus dem Hause Bear Family Productions umfassen ausschließlich größtenteils sehr rare Cover-Versionen von Presley-Titeln, die in den Jahren 1954 bis 1958 sowie im Teil 2 in den Jahren 1958 bis 1962 entstanden. Die jeweils 36 Seiten umfassenden Booklets beleuchten noch dazu alle Hintergründe zu den beteiligten Musikern und Bands, den Songs, den Parallelen zu Presley sowie den Angaben zur Erstveröffentlichung und den Komponisten der Songs. Sogar alle Bands bzw. Musiker und oftmals auch das Cover des Tonträgers sind darin als Foto zu entdecken.

Press and Reviews
Press Archive - The Elvis Presley Connection Vol.1 (CD) - Old Time Review
Press Archive - The Elvis Presley Connection Vol.1 (CD) - Old Time Review The CD contains three live recordings, which can sometimes let down a compilation. The two television performances, from Carl Perkins and Dorothy Collins respectively, vary in quality. Perkins’ more stripped-down approach comes across well, whereas Collins’ big band sound can be a bit ‘too much’ for the technology of the era. The radio recording, taken from The Louisiana Hayride, is a charming Country interpretation performed by Lucy Lynn. Bear Family Records have worked with material from this show previously, and it’s clear. The exclusion of the live performances would have evened the CD out to a nice and neat 30 tracks, but it would have lost the colour. Something Extra… Housing the CD is an attractive looking digipak along with an extensive 33-page booklet; featuring song and artist information. Alongside the writing are a few relevant images and illustrations. This approach to packaging is a standard with Bear Family releases and is always welcome. Conclusion: Bear Family Records have compiled an impressive selection of tracks to cover the subject nicely. There were a lot of options available for both sides of the compilation, and they have picked a good selection to start For the label to name something as volume 1 gives the impression of more Presley connections to come, and I look forward to seeing what treasures they unearth.

Press Archive - The Elvis Presley Connection Vol.2 (CD) - Routledge The Elvis Presley Connection: 33 Roots and Covers of Elvis Presley, 2019, Various Artists, CD, Bear Family BCD 17561 The Bill Haley Connection: 29 Roots and Covers of Bill Haley and His Comets, 2018, Various Artists, CD, Bear Family BCD 17531 Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau were a perfectly imperfect pair. They portrayed The Odd Couple in the 1968 motion picture version of Neil Simon's hit Broadway play. To many fans of rock and roll music, Elvis Presley and Bill Haley seem as mismatched as Lemmon and Matthau. In what ways were they opposites? Although Elvis was supported on stage and in the recording studio by guitarist Scotty Moore, bassist Bill Black, and drummer D. J. Fontana, he was always a singular performing sensation.
