Elvis Presley


What collection of tune from the fifties and sixties would be complete without at least one Elvis number? The first Elvis album I ever listened to was "GI Blues" and the first song I can remember was a tune called "Are you lonesome tonight." A lot of the slow songs from Elvis' early days were done with very simple instrumentation. He'd have an acoustic guitar and a few guys adding "ooohs and aahhhs" in the background and that was it. His voice was what people wanted to hear and that was usually enough to carry the song. So here's my version of this classic, prefaced by an introduction....
