HEAR ELVIS’S NEWLY ORCHESTRATED ALBUM – “The Wonder of You”

Listen to the producers talk about making this latest album… So if you haven’t already heard, Priscilla Presley along with producers Don Reedman and Nick Patrick have been re-working more Elvis classics into a brand new orchestral album called “The Wonder Of You: Elvis Presley With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra” it was released on October 21, 2016. We have been listening to the individual tracks on youtube, and we are quietly happy with the result.  There is an incredible clarity to Elvis’s powerful vocals and the orchestra is levelled to compliment the classic songs. At first we were a little sceptical, mostly about the motivations to create the album which is a follow up to last years “If I Can Dream”, which sold over a million copies and I am sure a nice profit. But after listening to the album we feel that the accompaniment does really add a beautiful dimension to Elvis’s vocals. Priscilla was quoted as saying “Elvis always loved the great, operatic vocalists,” we like to hope this was the motivation for these latest albums. The new album features tracks such as “Always On My Mind”, “A Big Hunk O’Love” and the song the album is named after “The Wonder of You”. The album producers are quoted as saying “We’ve made something new & fresh which stands on its own” Don Reedman says about the album...

WOLRD’S CUTEST ELVIS IMPERSONATOR DANCES LIKE THE KING

WATCH AN ADORABLE ELVIS STAR IN THE MAKING Elvis impersonators have been around since Elvis passed. They come from all over the globe and they come from many different backgrounds. Some of the impersonators look just like Elvis, some sound just like Elvis and some even dance just like him. The best of the best impersonators even have all three attributes down to the closest thing to they we will ever get to the real thing, Elvis himself. Although no one will ever replace Elvis with his all round amazingness, some try really hard and do a good job at it but theres always that special spark that Elvis had that no one can capture. We found a video on the internet of a young 2 year old, doing his damn finest Elvis dance impressions. We think he nails it pretty well considering the kids age, and he is just so adorable! Leave a comment and tell us what you think of this little groover. Cute little 2-year-old William Stokkebroe has been attending his parents dance studio in Denmark watching studiously as the instructors teach the Jive.

ELVIS WANTS YOU TO TREAT HIM NICE!

WATCH ELVIS SINGING ‘TREAT ME NICE’ IN FULL COLOR It has been 59 years this week since Elvis’s 3rd movie ‘Jailhouse Rock’ Premiered, which the song ‘Treat me nice’ was written for. On October 17th 1957 the film premiered in Memphis Tennessee a premiere that Elvis did not attend and which was meet with mixed reviews. Treat Me Nice was written by Jerry Leiber & Mike Stoller who were two incredible song writers who wrote many of the hits of this time including Elvis’s own Jailhouse Rock, Hound Dog & She’s Not You. They were considered the ‘masters behind the masters’ and were also part of Elvis’s Memphis Mafia, they were the genius behind some of those very catchy lyrics and melodies that Elvis became so well known for. When they were commissioned to write the sound track to ‘Jailhouse Rock’ and asked to produce some of the work in New York, they had failed to write anything at all. They were then held up in a hotel room by Elvis’s music manager Jean Aberbach, where he pushed a sofa up against the hotel room door, and kept them locked in there until they wrote the Jailhouse Rock soundtrack. The song was Vince’s (Elvis’s character in Jailhouse Rock) first recorded song after he left prison (in the movie) Initially a flop, Vince’s girlfriend Peggy convinced a DJ friend to...
