I doubt that "Good Luck Charm" will be on "Second To None" since it was used on "Elvis # 1 Hits."

I sincerely hope "Blue Christmas" is used.

Mystery Train

I accidentally looked over that song when I pulled out the songs that were already been used... yeah Blue Christmas a good one

I pray they include It Hurts Me. This should-have-been hit would be so great with improved sound, and be a real bonus for casual fans who don't have it.

Also it would be nice to have 1 gospel tune in there, maybe the grammy-winning live "How Great Thou Art" has a shot, though my fav's are from the 60's

The fact that everyone will have different ideas of what should be on this album only highlights the pointlessness (?) of the exercise.

It's like an album of also rans which will have indifferent public interest compared to ELV1S.

For example the sales number of Dean Martin"s Greatest His Vol 2 was very much less than the Vol 1 issue.

To my mind the follow-up should have been along the lines ELV1S - NUMBER ONE IN ROCK AND ROLL. Using the same cover format and including all the great rocking numbers that didn't make the top spot. This could be followed by a BLUES version and then a COUNTRY version.

No matter how you dress it up an album with 2 in the title cpaitalising on ELV1S will always give the impression of second rate - to the public :!:
