ELVIS PRESLEY | GIRL HAPPY (180 GRAM AUDIOPHILE VINYL/ANNIVERSARY LIMITED EDITION)
Elvis Aaron Presley was born during The Great Depression into a poor family in Mississippi. They moved to Memphis during the early fifties, and as a struggling young truck driver, he cut some demos at Sun Studios as a gift for his beloved mother Gladys. These initial songs, of which he had only paid a few dollars to record, would become the catalyst that would kick-start the beginnings of a soon to be worldwide superstar unlike the world has ever known.
The folks at RCA Victor knew that this young fellow named Elvis was destined for superstardom. They quickly bought out his contract and signed the legend to a long term deal, forever etching "The King Of Rock And Roll" trademark to his name. In 1965 after a plethora of chart topping albums and a bevy of number one singles, Elvis Presley continued to build his marquee value even further while starring in a staggering amount of feature motion pictures. More incredible fame followed as the Girl Happy movie starring Elvis Presley became a top box office smash. The 60's beach movie soundtrack album also was ablockbuster as it rose to the top ten charts, making this his 22nd smash album in a row! Both the Girl Happy movie and soundtrack LP truly proved once again that his career was unlike any other in music history.
Filled with more hits than a Ft. Lauderdale jukebox, the Girl Happy album takes off with several smashes in a row, including the classic title track rocker Girl Happy featuring Scotty Moore's trail blazing guitar work and the chart hit single Do the Clam. More soundtrack treasures follow with the beautiful hit single ballad Puppet on a String and the rockin' I've Got to Find My Baby, which truly made the album a treasure trove of hits. The album also features the stellar rock blues of Cross My Heart and Hope to Die and the brilliant Red West composition You'll Be Gone. In total, the album showcases 12 important Elvis Presley recordings which have truly gone on to become international classics.
