Elvis Presley - CD - Rating: 10/10

Unlike his debut album, this one feels much more complete and less like a singles collection. The production is slicker but the early Elvis rawness and attitude is still there. So many great songs like “Rip It Up” and “Paralyzed.” The rock ‘n’ roll stands aside for “Old Shep,” which is an epic tale of dog mercy killing. The CD includes six bonus tracks (singles from the same sessions) which include three of his best: “Don’t Be Cruel,” “Hound Dog,” and “Love Me Tender.” Awesome cover photo, by the way.
