All Shook Up - A Reggae Tribute To The King

Although not widely known, mainstream artists such as Jim Reeves, the Beatles, and of course Elvis were hugely popular in Jamaica throughout the sixties and seventies. This is reflected in the very first collection of Elvis covers - reggae style! All Shook Up - A Reggae Tribute To The King, released by Trojan Records on November 21, 2005 pays tribute to the King (in what would have been his 70th year), with this joyous collection of Reggae-fied versions of some of his best-loved hits. Among the numerous highlights are Chaka Demus & Pliers' irresistible rendition of Don't Be Cruel, Hortense Ellis' Lee Perry-produced Suspicious Minds and Jackie Edwards' superb version of the title track. This is a must have purchase for all Elvis (and reggae) fans and comes at a time when interest in Presley's work is greater than ever, as illustrated by a series of top five singles including the UK's 1000th #1 single with One Night.

superb! I always knew Elvis was big in the west indies and this prooves it. I'll be getting it and playing it at max volume to my reggae-loving pals. Brilliant cover!
