(2) Elvis: 'Rock n Roll No: 2' A Collectible

The image shows the back cover of the Elvis Presley No. 2 record in the last posting. Elvis the Pelvis, as he is usually known, gyrates and hip-swivels his way through this LP with Rip It Up, *When My Blue Moon Turns To Gold Again, **Long Tall Sally, Paralysed, Ready Teddy and How Do You Think I Feel.
His other songs though, reveal his more subdued and pensive mood when he delivers, Love Me, First In Line, So Glad You're Mine, Any Place Is Paradise, How's The World Treating You and Old Shep.
While checking this first impression record, *HMV/CLP 1105 which is made in Great Britain, blogger finds that it is a collector's item. The price will not be mentioned. Produced in 1957 it is in mint condition. Because Presley pressings run into millions, only certain records are collectibles.
*Elvis Presley No 2 Also known as Rock n Roll No 2 HMV CLP 1105 1957. Matrix G2 WP 7207 2N/7208 1N, Label Side 1.
*Recorded by Michael Goh (Gold)/Singapore. **Recorded by Crescendos/Philips/Universal Music, Singapore.

Yes, thanks. Great performance. But more interesting is how it's done. 2livefools explain it on their video clip on April, 28th, 2007.

Yes watched it during the American Idol series. Like Nat Cole and his daughter Natalie's duet for Unforgettable. Even Elvis' duet with his daughter. What modern technology can do.

The quote of John Lennon: "Before Elvis, there was nothing." says it all about that great artist of all times. Here I've tried to collect all notable tributes paid to Elvis Presley by peers:
