EP's record collection

Thu Dec 22, 2005 6:21 pm

I know this has beenup before...just wondered if there was anything new? Is there a list available anywhere describing the personal record collection of his? I find it very interesting too see what EP was listeningtoat home...

Thu Dec 22, 2005 6:28 pm

Not that I know of. But he did like and listen to all types of music, from Motown to Opra.

I know that.....It's the actual collection I'm interested in

Hold the phone!

Elvis liked more than just black music - and Opra (sic) can't sing to save her soul. :D

kkn -

Check with Scotty Moore.

IMO, he got some of the cream of the crop as far as EP's favorites went.

... just a fan ....

PS - For a minute there I though Elvis watched Oprah. :lol:

Are you talking about that old suitcase of his? :D

kkn, there was a two-part article about this in The Man And His Music recently. Elvis gave Scotty a suitcase of records for him to transfer to tape in his studio in 1968. Scotty still has the suitcase, the records, and the magazine they were wrapped in. It was pictured in the article. That stuff has to be worth quite a lot now! :shock: As I remember, most of the records were blues and r&B stuff from the '50s, Ivory Joe Hunter and things like that. I'm at work now and so I can't check the magazine. And I think Luuk on this board has a list of (some of) the records EP left at Graceland.

The King and Hi-Fi (secrets of Elvis' record collection)

The King and Hi-Fi (secrets of Elvis' record collection): the June 2004 issue of Britain's excellent Record Collector magazine featured a very interesting article about what is in Elvis' personal record collection.

It provides a great insight into Elvis' eclectic musical interests with many titles sure to surprise fans. The artists featured are a wide variety of names well known to fans and many artists fans will not have heard of before. The collection comprises more than 2,000 items of which more than 1,000 are catalogued in the article.

Some of the highlights (there are many more) include:

Jingle Bells by Bing Crosby & The Andrews Sisters is the earliest released (1943) single in the collection

the collection includes significant numbers of R&B but remarkably few seminal rock & roll releases. The large catalog of artists included Johnny Ace, Ray Charles, Faye Adams, Joe Turner, Little Walter and Ivory Joe Hunter

similarly, 'white' gospel recordings are well represented by names such as The Blackwood's, the Speer Family, The Statesmen, the Higher Ground and the Brock Brothers, while 'black' gospel hardly gets a look in, with only a handful of singles and LPs by artists including the Soul Stirrers, Golden Gate Quartet and the Rance Allen Group

ballad recordings by The Clovers, the Crickets, The Platters, the Spiders, the Dominoes, Pat Boone and Glenn Miller/The Ink Spots

the country music genre is well represented through recordings by Jimmy Little, Bobbie Gentry, Eddy Arnold, Rita Coolidge, Jim Reeves and Ray Price

soul recordings by Smokey Robinson, Etta James, Sam Cooke, Clyde McPhatter and Ben E. King among many others

records by the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra

choral recordings by the Bethany First Church of the Nazarene and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir

movie themes by Leonard Bernstein, Marty Gold and the Manhattan Pops
(then contemporary rock sounds) The Allman Brothers Band , Free and Mott The Hoople records

(then contemorary pop sounds) Jose Feliciano, Nilsson, Gilbert O'Sullivan, Tom Jones, Englebert Humperdinck, Dionne Warwick and Anne Murray
collection of speeches (In Search of Freedom) by Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King

Charles Boyer's LP of spoken love songs (Where Does Love Go)
the (symbolic single) I Can Make It With You by Jackie DeShannon
several comedy albums including The First Family by Robert Kennedy impersonator, Vaughn Meader, and Laugh...Live from Jonathan Winters
Red West's acetate of If Everyday Was Like Christmas (a festive theme recurred throughout Elvis' large collection with dozens of yuletide season titles)

The list of artists Elvis listened to is particularly broad. Apart from those mentioned above, others signifying an interesting cross-section of the musical rainbow are: Marty Robbins, Frank Sinatra, Brownie McGee, the Sunshine Sisters, Mac Davis, Rex Allen Jr., the New York Philharmonic, J.J. Cale, Glen Campbell, Bobby Bare, Bonnie Guitar, Wanda Jackson, Brenda Lee, The Statesmen, Buck Owens, the North Cleveland Church of God, The Supremes, Jackie Wilson, Johnny Cash, Harry Belafonte, Dean Martin, Roy Hamilton, Adam Wade, Billy Vaughn, Della Reese, Jerry Lee Lewis, Eddie Fontaine, Cliff Richard and Carla Thomas.

The authors (Steve Cairns and George R. White) found what they termed as some "cringeworthy" releases:

The Andrews Sisters Greatest Hits
Milton Berle's Songs My Mother Loved
Hilltoppers' Present Tops In Pops
Other interesting inclusions include releases by:

Max Bygraves Acker Bilk
Bert Kaempfert
Pat Boone reads from the Holy Bible
two singles by The Partridge Family
several "well worn LP's by David Cassidy".
Of special mention has to be Elvis' possession of "Ballads of The King (Songs of Elvis Presley)" by the Johnny Mann Singers.

And yes, for those of you wondering, Elvis' personal record collection included several of his own releases. Titles found included Elvis Is Back (reportedly well worn), Peace In The Valley (EP), A Date With Elvis (LP) and Jailhouse Rock (45rpm). However, Cairns and White state that it is "nothing like the full set".

The author's research was based on items seen at Graceland, Paul Simpson's book 'Rough Guide to Elvis', brief inventories published in Q magazine and notes provided by Scotty Moore.

Verdict: The King and Hi-Fi is a valuable new entry in our understanding of Elvis Presley the person. Until EPE releases a definitive catalog, The King and Hi-Fi is likely to stand as the most comprehensive examination of what is a most interesting subject. We recommend it to all serious Elvisphiles.

I remember reading an article about EP's record collection. They noted that the collection was pretty much missing all the 70's proge and hard rock records. In regarding Elvis's own records RCA must have provided Elvis with a copy of every record released in US. Of course Elvis most likely had acetate copies of his recordings that he took with him every time he left studio. Red West says Elvis compared the acetates with the actual records when they were released and went hopping mad when he noticed that the mix had been altered.

Fri Dec 23, 2005 7:43 pm

Now I finally found the following list stored on my PC. It's long, might be incomplete at the end, but makes for great reading. I have been told it originally got released by EPE in 1996 on the CD-ROM called "Virtual Graceland". Can anyone confirm this?

I'd say that pretty much covers it. Thanks, Melanie! I have the "Virtual Graceland" CD-Rom, but it's been years since I last watched it.

Are you talking about that old suitcase of his? :D

Absolutely FANTASTIC link & website, JVR.

-------------------------------------

I also thank you for opening the eyes of others (collectors & fans alike) as to the TRUE whereabouts of a number of EP's famous guitars. (Lots & lots have been faked, sold, misrepresented, duplicated, & even a number of bizarre tall-tales invented to accompany).

I really love that section of your website & it is right on the money.

A tip of my hat on a job very well-done.

Scotty is definitely The Man.

Thanks N880EP, it's the fans that help make it great. The questions they've asked helped motivate the direction the site has taken and its been a real blast doing it.

a little correction:

you only live twice and jackson are nancy sinatra's records and not frank's

with these hands and a little you, listed as "Jones" records and not "Jones, tom" records, are indeed Tom Jones records

the records under the martin category are not dean martin's. elvis owned at least return to me, and maybe quite a lot more.

re: the CD-ROM list and corrections.

Has a revised version been released? Does anyone know who at EPE was in charge? Anyone confident that they are aware of the errors?

"You Chose A Fine Time" and "Give Her A Kiss" might have been recorded by other artists. I mean is a CD-ROM the place to inform the fans about acetates? Surely not. Might be home recordings, but I always thought that list is complete. And in closing I would like to mention that those two titles aren't lyrics of songs, that Elvis officially recorded.

That Scotty Moore page is great. Those must have been Elvis' most prized records...
