Laurel Records will release the former LP Elvis: The Rockin´ Days as limited CD on July 5, 2010.
Tutti Frutti - King Creole - Blue Suede Shoes - Don't Be Cruel - Hard Headed Woman - I Got Stung - Ready Teddy - All Shook Up - Long Tall Sally - Mean Woman Blues - Dixieland Rock - Shake Rattle And Roll - Shake Rattle And Roll (Live Jan. / Feb. 1955 Lubbock Texas) - Shake Rattle And Roll / Flip Flop And Fly (CBS Stage Show 01/28/1956)
Good if you like Shake, Rattle and Roll. You get three versions.
Seeing this cover again brings back a few memories. I bought a German import copy of the original LP in the early seventies.
It was my first lp (elvis album) I bought way back in the seventies, so last saterday I bought the cd. For me it was no wast of efforts, I am glad it is finally on cd.
This has released on cd before with the same cover/tracks as album version,the only difference here is a extra 2 tracks on the end, run of the mill stuff so have to say not a lot to shout about on this occasion? Not sure why Laurel have gone with this release as they have better offerings to come but for the ones that missed the album may be a chance to grab a 'classic ' cover the the days of old.
My first Elvis album, bought in February 1975...I'm shook...I'm rattled and I'm certainly rolled!
This silver disc has already been released at the end of May. I already got my copy. It's a nice, but unnecessary addition to a collector's archive...
