iTunes Review

King Creole was Elvis Presley's last movie, and its soundtrack was among the final recordings he made before entering the U.S. Army in the spring of 1958. The title track, "Hard Headed Woman," "Trouble," and "Dixieland Rock" are among Presley's strongest vocal performances and brought his original band face to face with a five-piece horn section that encouraged everyone to play faster, harder, and with great excitement. The original album featured just 11 songs, with the longest track—the midtempo "Young Dreams"—clocking at an epic two minutes, and 25 seconds. Elvis and the label had to struggle for this to reach a minimally acceptable length for an LP, which let more unusual performances, such as "Lover Doll," be included, as well as the spare ballad "Steadfast, Loyal and True," with just The Jordanaires accompanying Elvis. Best of the oddities is the deliciously bizarre duet with jazz vocalist Kitty White on the bongo-led "Crawfish"; it's a hilarious side trip few would expect. It doesn't explain, however, why "Danny," from these sessions, was ignored the first time around and added posthumously.

AS LONG AS I HAVE YOU.* DON’T ASK ME WHY*…..YOUNG DREAMS… LOVER DOLL…STEADFAST LOYAL AND TRUE…IN LOVER DOLL ELVIS WALKS AROUND IN A 5 AND DIME OFF CANAL STREET, I THINK IT WAS McCRORY,S, THE SIDE ENTRANCE. WE ALWAYS STOPPED THERE WHEN WE WENT TO TOWN. SINGING TO THE GIRLS... SOME SHOTS TAKE YOU OUT TO LAKE PONTCHARTRAIN BY THE CAMPS IN LITTLE WOODS…. HE WAS SO PRECIOUS IN THIS FILM.

Biography

Born: January 8, 1935 in Tupelo, MS

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '50s, '60s, '70s

Elvis Presley may be the single most important figure in American 20th century popular music. Not necessarily the best, and certainly not the most consistent. But no one could argue with the fact that he was the musician most responsible for popularizing rock & roll on an international level. Viewed in cold sales figures, his impact was phenomenal. Dozens upon dozens of international smashes from the mid-'50s to the mid-'70s, as well as the steady sales of his catalog and reissues since his death...
