Best track on "For LP fans only" LP 1959

Post by dreambear »

I really have a soft spot for this album. As a 10 year old child (1978), my sister had an cassette version of this album, and I loved it. So I really can´t see this album without the famous rose coloured glasses :D .
That even includes weaker material like Poor boy...

But here´s defenitely a lot of first class songs and only one or two songs below par. The intro of My baby left me is an earthshaker with the drums and Bill´s bass. And no one can ignore classic cuts like That´s all right, Lawdy miss clawdy and others, but I must give my vote to "Mystery train". The overals sound is amazing and the laugh from Elvis at the end makes me feel really good.

This album feels a bit stronger than it´s "brother" "A date with Elvis".

Now it´s up to you!

Vote on!

Except for "Poor Boy" I like all the tracks. "Mystery Train" is a fave of mine. So, I voted for it.

"Lawdy Miss Clawdy" got my vote. You can never go wrong with that song, both the original 56 and the 68 versions are great and I do like the 72 version too. :D

I voted for "Shake, Tattle, and Todler" … eh, "Shake, Rattle and Roll". :lol:

It may not be the best song of the album, but it’s the song I like the best.

That song could have been included on hthe "Harum scarum" soundtrack...but under a slightly changed title: "Sheik, rattle and roll" 8)
