Great album this one, stacked full of short but sweet rock and roll tunes. I really liked how it kicks off with some proper finger-clicking music, impossible to sit still to. It’s a bit of a rollercoaster of an album though, dipping straight down into a slower love songs. And I can’t believe this album has Old Shep on it - such a downer! And so hard to follow, it’s a weird juxtaposition to suddenly dive straight back into the guitars. But hey, trust in Elvis, it’s a good album overall.

I knew going into this that I’m not really a fan of jazz, but having watched Forever Young which features the wonderful Billie Holiday singing The Very Thought Of You, I thought it was worth a shot. The album was pretty much as I expected - Billie’s absolutely exquisite vocals layered over jazz music. And as anticipated, I didn’t enjoy the jazz but you can’t argue with Billie’s voice.

We’re in to the fifth year of this album adventure and I’ve only just picked up an Elvis record to listen to. Incredible. This is his debut, twelve songs of lovely Elvis voice - some covers, some original stuff, some that are super famous. Imagine having Blue Suede Shoes on your debut!
