Over the next few weeks I will be offering a wonderful selection of rare mostly UK late 50's & 60's 1st pressing LP's and EP's. Obtained from and English gentleman who originally lived in Manchester and saw many of the great acts of the day in their prime. His enthusiasm and knowledge of this period of music and the amount of artists he saw was quite staggering and included Rolling Stones, Beatles, Eric Burdon & Animals, Manfred Mann, Gerry & The Pacemakers, Small Faces, Kinks, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Roy Orbison, Sam Cooke, this list went on and on! A fastidious collector his vinyl overall has been kept in fantastic condition especially considering some of the items are over 50 years old! Many of the items would have been bought within weeks of their original release dates. We offer combined postage on all items purchased. Hopefully I will have the opportunity to list his 45's in the near future. Over 300 wonderful items from the same period.
Elvis was out of uniform in March 1960 and laying down vocals for his first big musical production in April. The confections that make up the soundtrack for G.I. Blues were the most trite collection of songs in his career, with the slight but affecting "Wooden Heart" the standout. Still, Elvis' enthusiasm makes even the puff listenable; one can't imagine even considering listening to this music had any other singer on the planet recorded it
Tracks: Tonight is so right for love/ What's she really like/ Frankfort special/ Wooden heart/ G.I. blues/ Pocketful of rainbows/ Shoppin' around/ Big boots/ Didja ever/ Blue suede shoes/ Doin' the best I can.
