What Elvis actually said, on the May 1958 Eddie Fadal home recording, is that he was afraid that her record company would give her torchy ballads a la Julie London.
But, as heard in my original post, her first single A-side in October 1958 was a very Connie Francis-like cover of "Crying In The Chapel." Her June 1961 Sun single was also very catchy pop, and both sides are included in that same post. Her music wasn't boring, it was actually in line with what was popular, and she delivered the material with panache.
I know what Elvis actually said and I stated it as ELvis stated it.
Yes, in 1961 perhaps Anita's singles were catchy pop songs, but in 1958 Elvis had NO way
of knowing that in advance did he? Elvis was stating what he thought might happen, ala the Julie London type material.
In the future don't try to correct me, unless I state a falsehood. That would help alot.
