Boy From Tupelo

Jul 6, 2004
A release from BMG Special products, mainly distributed through Starbuck café’s in June. This CD was not available in regular CD shops.

Design

This is for sure one of the best looking CD’s from the last years. A three panel digipack with a smashing twenty pages booklet inside. The information inside isn’t new, but the liner notes from Peter Guralnick on Elvis and the individual songs on this CD, combined with black and white pictures of our man on his way to fame in the fifties make this a great package.

Content

The fifteen tracks on this CD are know to most of us, and are a good choice regarding the celebration of the 50th anniversary of Rock and Roll. The tracks are dated between July 1954, “That’s All Right”, and February 1956, “Blue Suede Shoes”. The audio quality on this release is very good. Simply a great fifties rock and roll collection.

Conclusion

In the U.K. a CD titled “The Only Elvis Presley Album You Will Ever Need” was released, but this one would be a good contester for that title. It only covers a small, but essential, era in Elvis recording career, but with these tracks and this package it is a nice addition to any (beginning Elvis) CD collection.
