Here you can also post any related video's of Elvis too, except impersonator video's where they imitate Elvis' voice of material he recorded.

These are the magnificent recordings that inspired Elvis:

There's something special about listening to these, knowing that Elvis heard the same recordings and was deeply moved by them.

Yes, a great listen.

Useless trivia:

There have been 7 UK chart versions of Unchained Melody but Elvis isn't among them [nor Roy either].

There have been 4 of You'll Never Walk Alone [not Roy] and the Elvis one was the least successful.

Great performances. Perhaps Elvis should have tackled Unchained Melody in that lower key. Might have had an easier time with it.

For me, Elvis never nailed the song.

A proper studio version might have helped.............
