Elvis' private record collection
According to EPE as featured on the 1996 CD-ROM called "Virtual Graceland", this was Elvis' private record collection on August 16, 1977.

Please note there is no uniformity in the listing. Sometimes it starts with the last name, sometimes with the first name. At the end there is a list of groups starting with "The".

Re: From Elvis' Crates --> His Vinyl Is No Mystery!

Fri Dec 07, 2012 12:07 am

I couldn't see the Beatles on the list. Apparently, Elvis had 4 of their albums.

Re: From Elvis' Crates --> His Vinyl Is No Mystery!

Fri Dec 07, 2012 1:14 am

From these lists, some Elvis influences may be traced.

One that immediately jumps out is this:


641114_ABC-Paramount 10602_Impressions.JPG


phpBB [video]


Impressions, "Amen" (ABC-Paramount ABC 10602, November 14, 1964)
Lead vocalist: Curtis Mayfield
Billboard US Pop #7, January 9, 1965, R&B #17 January 30, 1965



Taken from this huge hit Impressions album:


640801_ABC-Paramount 493_Impressions.JPG
Keep On Pushing (ABC-Paramount ABC 493, August 1, 1964)
Billboard US US Pop #15, December 26, 1964, R&B #4 January 30, 1965
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keep_on_Pushing
"Amen" was featured in the 1963 United Artist film, "Lilies of the Field"
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lilies_of_the_Field_(1963_film)



All those live Presley performances of "Amen" in the '70s, in a medley with Ray Charles' "I Got A Woman," come from this fabulous recording by the Impressions.

How cool. It almost makes me like Elvis' rendition. ;-)

Re: From Elvis' Crates --> His Vinyl Is No Mystery!

Fri Dec 07, 2012 1:45 am

There are a number of errors on that list, and a number of items which are unclear. For example:

Frank Sinatra did not sing You Only Live Twice or Jackson - they were Nancy.

The Paul Anka item "My Heart Sings" could either be the 45 rpm single or the album of the same title (of course he could have played the single at album speed to get an idea of how he himself would sound on a 2012 FTD release!!! :D ) .

The Sinatra "Close To You" could be the album of the same name, or the 1943 recording (very different entities, for the album from 1956 is one of Sinatra's more esoteric efforts)

Under "Price" is listed items by both Ray and Lloyd

Under "Humperdinck" is the word "parrot", which is neither a single nor an album but a label!

I'm sure there are others, but just things to bear in mind.

Also the list finishes with the "TH" entries, and so it presumably incomplete - unless Elvis had an aversion to singers beginning with the letter U,V,W, X, Y or Z!

(Well, it's not like EVERYTHING he said was false . . . not everything. But I was hoping for where Charlie said "wore out." I read it somewhere - and it's not something I would have forgotten. I'm a big Dylan fan, and I remember this. "Wore out." Those words. That album. Heck, it's not my favorite Dylan album by any means, but yeah, it makes sense.)

http://www.elvisinfonet.com/spotlight_elvis_folk.html

David Stanley also confirmed that Elvis enjoyed Dylan's country/folk album 'Nashville Skyline'. Interestingly Dylan's album, released in 1969, takes the musician towards his country origins in a similar way that Elvis would pursue them at his 1970 Nashville sessions.

Several of Dylan's musicians played on Elvis' albums over the years, including Charlie McCoy who contributed in a major way to Elvis' 1971 "folk" sessions.

It is also likely (??) that Elvis also heard Dylan's performance of Gordon Lightfoot's 'Early Mornin' Rain' from his 1970 'Self Portrait' album. The album itself also featured Dylan covering Elvis' song 'Blue Moon'!

Dylan's record producer Bob Johnston has even stated that when Dylan wrote a song they both thought might work for Elvis, he tried to arrange a meeting. "I tried to get them to record together. I think Dylan would have done it in a second." It's an fascinating idea.

.


I'm a huge Dylan fan too. I doubt that Elvis played Nashville Skyline till the record wore out, but I would not be surprised if he actually liked it. It has been rumoured that Dylan wrote Tell Me That Isn't True for Elvis. It might be true or false, but the song really sounds like an Elvis-tune and it probably would have sounded great if Elvis had done it.

It has been documented that Elvis was not fond of Dylan's voice and he preferred Dylan covers. Did you notice that Elvis had I Shall Be Released by Box Tops in his record collection?

Re: From Elvis' Crates --> His Vinyl Is No Mystery!

Fri Dec 07, 2012 3:20 am

"Give Her a Kiss" by Presley (ok...what is this????)

Note, the collection included the Hit Record label's "Return to Sender" by Ed Hardin. Ed Hardin was a fictitious name for Bobby Russell or any of a number of vocalists who recorded 'sound a like' records. Those with Ed Hardin's name on them were usually very good.

Re: From Elvis' Crates --> His Vinyl Is No Mystery!

Fri Dec 07, 2012 3:21 am

Marty Lacker has told a story for years that he went to a record store and bought Elvis a copy of Bob Dylan's first LP.

Really? Interesting. Can this story be found from somewhere?

I would not be surprised if he bought Dylan's second album. The first one was not a hit.

Do you have all Springsteen and Beatles albums? I know that you love them very, very much. So, one would assume that the Doc would have all of the official releases.

So, given that Elvis only had 4, and not the 13 albums that he could have purchased, says it all really.

Yes, unless someone owns 100% of an artist's output, they cannot possibly be an unabashed fan. Nice theory, and also very untrue.

Back on topic:
Here's another from the above list that caught my eye, and captured my heart :smt007 :

For years? This is new to me, but I found the story in an April 2012 website entry. It is copied below.

However, Marty does not state he bought Dylan's debut LP from 1962, but rather Bob's " first one with his great songs on it." This is very likely Dylan's first rock-oriented album, a classic released in August 1965:

Marty probably picked it up for Elvis in late August - early September, after they returned from location shooting in Hawaii for Paramount's "Paradise, Hawaiian Style."

Hi Marty
Thanks for your time. My questions are about Bob Dylan. Did he & Elvis ever meet? Elvis did a great recording of Bob’s ‘Tomorrow Is A Long Time’. Did he ever want to record an album or more songs by Dylan? I know he did that jam session & home recording, but I’m talking about a serious studio album. Imagine how that would have silenced the critics during the soundtrack years or even in the 70’s. Did Elvis actually own & listen to Dylan’s records? Once again, thanks for your time.


Marty Says:
Hi Debbie,
No, Elvis never met Dylan to my knowledge. I do not recall him ever saying he wanted to do a an album of Dylan songs although he did admire "Tomorrow" and a couple of others. I know he owned at least one Dylan album, it was Dylan's first one with his great songs on it, I bought it for him in the 60's at Martin's Music Store in Culver City, California near MGM studios. I would often go there to see what new records they had to buy for Elvis when we did movies at MGM.

I took his comments to mean the very first Dylan album or possibly the Freewheelin Bob Dylan.

Most people would agree that the first Dylan album with great songs on it would be the freewheelin' album - the inclusion of Blowin in the Wind and Don't Think Twice also suggests it is this album, considering Elvis attempted both.

Re: From Elvis' Crates --> His Vinyl Is No Mystery!

Fri Dec 07, 2012 5:52 am

On June 22, while still in Memphis celebrating Priscilla's graduation, Elvis would have certainly seen the "Dylan: Young Man in Hurry" article in the Folk section of Billboard.

The album was reviewed in Billboard on July 20 when Elvis was in Hollywood filming VIVA LAS VEGAS at MGM in Culver City. Surely Elvis read the review and sent Marty out to Martin's Music Store at 3870 Culver Center St. to purchase the new album for him. The same issue had reviews of new albums by Ray Charles, Pat Boone and Johnny Cash: all artists that Elvis loved very, very much.

Hope this helps!

A terrific subject Doc. Thank you, fascinating thread. "John Lennon's Jukebox" from several years ago was a great subject for a documentary and I'd love to see similar done with EP's collection.

This is a clip from the Lennon documentary featuring Elvis' hometown Soulsville USA.

Actually, there are great songs on Bob's debut LP but, regardless, there is much to suggest you are mistaken.

Considering that Dylan exploded on the pop consciousness in 1965, and was likely a subject of discussion when Elvis invited the Beatles to his home on August 27, and the fact that in late August his amazing, six-minute "Like A Rolling Stone" was at #6 -- and rising -- on Billboard's national chart and at #1 on the magazine's Los Angeles Top 40 -- along with other Dylan songs or Dylan-influenced numbers on both of those charts -- I'd wager I am right. ;-)


Billboard Aug 28 1965 p6.jpg
Billboard - August 28, 1965
Top 100 national chart: Dylan at #6; Dylan covers at #15, #21, #47; Dylan-influenced at #1, #2, #12, #27, #52


Billboard Aug 28 1965 p9.jpg
Billboard - August 28, 1965
Note Los Angeles Top 40 chart: Dylan at #1; Dylan covers at #16, #26; Dylan-influenced at #2, #5, #6, #8, #11


As I wrote, Elvis likely had Marty buy the Dylan album with "Like A Rolling Stone" on it: Highway 61 Revisited. He needed to find out what the hell was going on with this Dylan guy.

Thank you.

Bringing It All Back Home or Blonde On Blonde could be it too. All three of the 1965-66 albums are full of well known songs.
It should read Dave not Dale Stinit. That record is the best Johnn Cash knock off I have heard and it was on Sun..
Also of all those other records by James Brown he only cut Man's World and Merry Christmas Baby, none of the others are him.
Cool list!

Nice try tho. ::rocks

Elvis couild have had records all over the place being on the road and having more than one home. I wouldn't say these are the only records he bought. Elvis said he liked The Beatles music a lot in an interview with Ray Connolly, mentioning he liked their old stuff best like I Saw Her Standing There. Still he covered there later songs so I assume he liked a fair share of those too.

Yes, it is most likely Freewheelin'. Dylan hit the big time before Highway 61 Revisited.

The Blossoms, "You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin'" (Bell 750, April 1969)
Produced by Bill Medley, they provided the backing vocals on the Righteous Brothers 1965 hit.
Clip is from "Playboy After Dark," Hugh Hefner's second syndicated TV series, December 17, 1969.


Darlene Love, just 28, is stunning in that blonde wig, and what a vocal! Elvis must have loved it.

True, but the timing of Dylan's best known, greatest single topping the charts, along with all the covers and wanna-bes taking up slots all over the Top 40, in the summer of 1965 -- as may be clearly seen in my earlier uploads -- indicates that Highway 61 Revisited is the most likely choice for Marty's memory.

Yes, Elvis loved it so much that his arrangement is very close to it indeed notice how Elvis changes the third verse in the way the Blossoms do here. Isn't it odd how Elvis's version is influenced by this rendition considerably more than Tom Jones that you are argued was the main influence a week ago???

Not just a fan. According to the Doc, Elvis "loved them very, very much". A fact that even Elvis' closest friends were unaware of.

But hey, if it makes him happy :lol:
