Rubberneckin is about to take the UK by storm. The big question is which mix will we get.
So far the only one we've had access to is the Cool groove mix, Elvis In-Cognito
which at 3min 25 secs consists of take 1 vocal along with various samplings & break beats etc. from the original session. I'm sure many fans are gonna love this as nothing new has been added that wasn't actually layed down at the sessions back in Jan of '69. Mind you, that doesn't mean it's like the original. In fact far from it, it sounds way different and is pretty dam good as well-that's for sure.
I have heard that there may well be a version 2 of this with changes towards the latter part of the song. I guess we'll have to wait & see on that over the next few days.
It would also appear BMG/RCA have commisioned 3 other DJs to do mixes as well. The now common one being Paul Oakenfold, which we are told is gonna be the single. Rumour has it though, that he is currently re-working his first offering due to a favoured, and by all accounts pretty outstanding mix done by FischerSpooner.
There is also a 3rd DJ mix as well, BMG is giving little away as to who this may be. Anyone out there know who?
The good news is that BMG is at least going all out for this summer Elvis No 1. Lets all show support whatever happens as there's no Nike ad campaign to fall back on this year. But hey, this is Elvis-he don't need Nike
