Give Me The Right

Post by Chucky99 »

What a great song from Something for everybody 1961 album.
It is not in the style of Starting today,Gently or It 's a sin from the same album,but a very strong ballad as people would call it today a power ballad.
The opening,the saxophone part,the guitar,Elvis voice,all are in perfect combination and make a very atmospheric song.
What do you guys think?

I love this song too. It has a great bluesy feel to it.

Very good, song, performance by all involved. Is it really a ballad though? A slow blues ballad perhaps. Love the sax work on this one. Just the right touches by Boots.

Great performance: i've got a soft spot for the alternate take released on ESSENTIAL VOLUME 6 which is a little bit bluesier. 1961 was a great time to be an Elvis fan, I guess.
