Elvis One presents volume 2 of "Pure & Simple" - Elvis without backing vocals & overdubs, the pure sound of Elvis Presley.
Original masters but also some alternate versions were used for this release.
In most of the studio sessions the backing musicians were there with Elvis and Elvis was singing along with them – yet here these vocals are faded out if they were present.
A total of 16 stunning songs! Including a 12 pages booklet with photos and recording information.
Just For Old Time Sake / Starting Today / Can’t Help Falling In Love / Summer Kisses, Winter Tears / He Knows Just What I Need / Doin’ The Best I Can / Suspicion / Home Is Where The Heart Is / Fame And Fortune / Something Blue / I Don’t Want To / Tomorrow Night / Please Don’t Stop Loving Me / I’m Yours / I Will Be Home Again / I’ll Never Let You Go (lLittle Darlin’)
