    Todella upea cdboxi! Paljon harvinaisuuksia.. Boxi peilaa hienosti vuoden 1956 Elvis materiaalia… 1956 is without any doubt the most crucial year of Elvis’ career. The Hillbilly Cat became the King of Rock & Roll during that year. His television appearances rocked the nation, and his recordings redefined popular culture. Elvis was the first true rock star, and 1956 is the year where the whole thing just exploded for him. With a fresh RCA Victor recording contract in his pocket, an ambitious new manager named Thomas A. Parker promoting him, and nationwide television exposure to look forward to, the year looked very promising right from the outset. Even though some of the RCA Victor execs expressed concern about the quality of the material recorded at the January 1956 session in Nashville, the first single from that session, ’Heartbreak Hotel’, became a huge hit thanks to his appearances on the Dorsey Brothers ’Stage Show’. From that point onwards, Elvis could do no wrong. He recorded so many great, classic songs that year, that it’s quite a task to list them all: ’I Was The One’, ’Blue Suede Shoes’, ’My Baby Left Me’, ’Lawdy Miss Clawdy’, ’I Want You, I Need You, I Love You’, ’Hound Dog’, ’Don’t Be Cruel’, ’Love Me Tender’, ’Too Much’, ’Love Me’, ’Paralyzed’. the list goes on and on. These recordings define Elvis’ greatness: they are the reason why we still listen to him today, more than 35 years after his death.With this release we want to pay tribute to that remarkable year. But instead of using the regular versions, we wanted to dig a little deeper. So we searched out alternate versions from jam sessions, rehearsals, live shows, and in one instance, a re-recording. Most are complete versions, some are fragments, a few are mere one-liners – but they all help in explaining the importance that these songs had on the remainder of Elvis’ career. These songs were so crucial to him that, like it or not, he had to do them on stage. Much has been made of the sloppiness with which he performed some of them in his final years, which is undeniably true, but there are also numerous examples where he did very credible versions of these songs or where he tried to reinvent them. Of course, his problem ultimately always being, how can you improve on a classic? You can’t. Until now, these alternate versions have been nothing more than interesting footnotes in Elvis history, but we decided to gather them all in one place where they make sense and where they now get a chance to shine.Instead of telling you what to listen out for and what to enjoy, we felt it would be more fun to make you do the exploring. The fun of releases like this is the surprise of hearing something that you weren’t expecting.FOR THE FIRST TIME ON CD:I Want You I Need You I Love You, July 1971 Lake Tahoe – Old Shep, May 1973 Lake Tahoe – Don´t Be Cruel, February 1971 Las Vegas – Hound Dog (original lyrics), August 1971 Las Vegas – When My Blue Moon Turns To Gold Again, March 1975 Las Vegas – Love Me, February 1971 Las Vegas and many more.
