I agree about ditching I Want You, I Need You, I Love You !

This should never have been the follow-up single to Heartbreak Hotel.

It only warrants 'B' side status.

No such problem with Too Much, though !

Though EP´s first LP is a classic, I´ve always thought that it was also a mess : a mixed bag of RCA cuts with several Sun sides... The second LP though was much more coherent. And, yes, ELVIS´56 (1992) is a great CD!

What an awesome idea and project. Really cool!

"Elvis '56" came out for the first time in 1996, Jeanno, as far
as I know.

I agree with you about the two albums and number two (known
in the UK as "Rock'n'Roll No. 2" I think), was conceived as a true album
and in that way is almost his real first album. Even the liner notes
were surprisingly good -and I noticed that even as a kid.

However, "Elvis Presley" was a true album as well
-and received as such.

Only years later do we get thrown by the Sun sides.
It gets major
points for its cover, which is an acknowledged classic.

I'm open to creative repackagings (nicely done, guys) but
I still would rather see the original albums respected.

Everyone should have bought each again in 2005 for the
Kevan Budd sound. :D
