Various - Bear Family Records: The Elvis Presley Connection Vol.2 (CD)

1-CD with 36-page booklet, 33 tracks. Total playing time approx. 79 minutes. 

• A unique collection of originals and rare cover versions of famous Elvis tunes.
• This second volume continues exactly where volume one ended. It puts the spotlight on songs that Elvis had recorded in-between 1958 and 1962.
• Did you know that the famous girl group The Marvelettes covered Elvis and what famous Hollywood actor Anthony Perkins has in common with Elvis Presley?
• More rare recordings are included here, many of them for the first time on CD!
• We have two Don Robertson demos made exclusively for Elvis Presley and two of Elvis' colleagues in Memphis, Carl Mann and Thomas Wayne are as well included as the famous answer songs to Little Sister and Just Tell Her Jim Said Hello by LaVern Baker and Gerri Granger.
• The compilation also presents rare British Rock 'n' Rollers with their versions of Elvis-songs, including some hard-to-cover ballads.
• We have of course some originals that Elvis influenced. Especially The Blackwood Brothers in Elvis' favorite gospel field and the rare original of Shoppin' Around by Joel Grey!
• Australian rockers, Johnny Devlin and Bryan Davies, are included with their hard-to-find versions of A Big Hunk O' Love and Slicin' Sand.
• Crooners, rockers, R&B acts, all influenced by Elvis Presley, plus songs that Elvis influenced himself while he was working extensively on his career as a Hollywood actor.
• The fine booklet includes rare photos and memorabilia plus liner notes by the German Elvis Presley expert Helmut Radermacher.

Volume 2 continues where Volume 1 has ended
Where did Elvis Presley got his inspirations from? This is still the main question behind the concept for this second compilation. Elvis Presley's musical style and his performances on stage and in Hollywood movies were as unique as it can be but we also put a spotlight on Elvis Presley's influences by other musicians and situations in Elvis Presley's life!

How did Elvis Presley continue to influence the music world during the period of the late 1950s to the early 1960s? This is the next question we examine with the second compilation. How did other performers react on Elvis Presley in the late 50s while Elvis' career was interrupted due to his Army service? How's the reaction by musicians from other countries than the US? 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 rare versions of Elvis songs from British and American low budget labels like Eli Whitney, Bobby Stevens aka Ray Pilgrim, or Paul Rich.

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.

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.
