12 Songs, 30 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

By the time of his second album, Elvis was already a hard man to pin down. He’s ripping it up on three different Little Richard covers here, and rocking through “Paralyzed”—one of very few songs that bore his name as a cowriter. At the same time, Elvis features the canine tearjerker “Old Shep” and the romantic crooner “First in Line.” In between, country/rockabilly songs let guitarist Scotty Moore wail: the single “Love Me” is one of The King’s steamier ballads.
