If Elviss second album isn't quite as important historically as the album that preceded it, that's only because it came second. Musically, it's a more confident and bolder work than his debut, and in any other artist's output it would have been considered a crowning achievement. At the sessions for his first album, the singer and all concerned were treading into unmapped territory and not sure what they were doing or if they were ready for it by September of 1956, when the three days of sessions behind the Elvis album took place, he was on top, a national phenomenon of a kind that hadn't been seen in music since. A dozen years earlier, and he had some more experience recording.
And with that confidence came better singing. The songs here were, for the most part, material that he knew well, with one new submission by. He slides through them seemingly effortlessly, transforming the 1940s country number "When My Blue Moon Turns to Gold Again" into a smooth rocker; roaring through the.
S "I'm So Glad You're Mine" (a leftover, amazingly enough, from his first RCA session); and shows how refined his voice was becoming on the ballad "First in Line" and the sentimental favorite Old Shep. REVIEW REPRINTED COURTESY OF BRUCE EDER, ALL MUSIC GUIDE.TO SEE IF WE HAVE OTHER LISTED ITEMS BY THIS GROUP OR ARTIST. IMPORTANT NOTE: unless otherwise noted, ALL records are graded visually, and NOT play-graded! Grade records under the strong, diffuse room light or discrete sunlight. Some VERY LIGHT AND SUPERFICIAL abrasions mostly sleeve scuffs. Are (barely) visible, but are probably inaudible.
And do not affect visual integrity or beauty of the vinyl. The original luster is very much intact, and the vinyl shines and sparkles almost like new. The record has a "deep groove" (an indent in the label about 1/2-inch from the edge of the label, which on SOME labels is associated with very early or first pressings). The record is pressed on a beautiful, thick, inflexible vinyl, which was usually used for the first or very early pressings. Usually, the sound on such thick vinyl pressings is full-bodied, vivid, and even dramatic.
Do not expect to obtain such a majestic analog sound from a digital recording! The record comes in the original stock inner sleeve.
Mono pressing of this title is much rarer, and by far more. Preferable to its stereo counterpart. We think that the mix is more natural, humane, "organic" and that the mixes are somewhat different than on the stereo version.
We estimate that stereo copies of this album outnumber mono pressings by a ratio of at least 10:1. Of course, this is a full-bodied ANALOG recording, and not an inferior, digital recording!! THE COVER IS NICE --- ABOUT EXCELLENT OR.
The following flaws or imperfections are noted on the cover. Cover has JUST A HINT of ring wear (nothing significant); On the scale from 1 to 10 1 being the least, and.10 being the most severe, we assess the severity of ring wear as 1. (front side) and 2 (back side). Cover shows some light yellowing on back side, apparently from aging.
Cover has some tiny, faint writing on its back side (a small filing code written in one corner). (less than 1/8 square inch in size). Cover shows some light yellowing on both sides, apparently from aging.
Cover has a visible wrinkle (crease) in the cardboard base on the front panel. Cover has two corners slightly worn (BARELY VISIBLE). Cover has a minor'bump' (dent) on the spine. (VISIBLE ON BACK SIDE ONLY). NO OTHER IMPERFECTIONS ON THE COVER.No dirt/dust rubbing stains (friction marks caused by rubbing against other covers). No mold or mildew spots. No razor marks, scratches, pressure marks, lines, streaks, or.
No wax, glue, paint or liquid drops on the cover. No glue traces or wax residue. No RIAA stamps or stickers.
