We all need some Elvis records in our collections, no doubt about that. I'm not sure if I will sign a statement that he is the king of rock and roll, but it's essential stuff. If you need some more Elvis, Proper issued a 4 CD box called "The Tupelo Mississippi Flash" (2008), and this is good value for money. The recordings are from the period 1954-1957, and it's both rocking and pretty sweet (of course). One of the CDs contain live material, and the sound quality isn't exactly fantastic on this one, but the rest is good.
Let's see a video of Elvis singing "Hound Dog", and Elvis is cool here, but we have to see Big Mama Thornton's version of the same song (with Buddy Guy). Coolest!
