    • The fine booklet includes rare photos and memorabilia plus liner notes by the German Elvis Presley expert Helmut Radermacher.

    Volume 2 continues where Volume 1 has ended
    Where did Elvis Presley got his inspirations from? This is still the main question behind the concept for this second compilation. Elvis Presley’s musical style and his performances on stage and in Hollywood movies were as unique as it can be but we also put a spotlight on Elvis Presley’s influences by other musicians and situations in Elvis Presley’s life! 

    How did Elvis Presley continue to influence the music world during the period of the late 1950s to the early 1960s? This is the next question we examine with the second compilation. How did other performers react on Elvis Presley in the late 50s while Elvis’ career was interrupted due to his Army service? How’s the reaction by musicians from other countries than the US? Listen to this unique compilation and you get the answers! 

    Rare tracks
    Many rare recordings are compiled here, some for the first time on CD!
