Elvis' Christmas Album
DOXY (RUSSIAN FEDERATION)
We got this too fucking late for Christmas in 2010 and absolutely nobody bought in January 2011 -- nothing more fickle & full of disdain than holiday Elvis buyers, evidently. Here's another chance to get it -- is it in poor taste to even ask? "The initial reaction to the release of this album was unbelievably one of controversy. Irving Berlin was actually horrified that his 'White Christmas' was being sullied by the 'vulgar kid with the gyrating pelvis,' and many others agreed. The year was 1957 and Elvis was still young (just 22) and dangerous,
had just hit the box offices and his 'Hound Dog / Don't Be Cruel' single was still at the top of the charts. But despite his status as the ultimate rebel, Elvis actually managed to deliver pretty convincing versions of these Christmas classics, so much so that although Irving Berlin may still be rolling over in his grave, the album itself has taken its place as one of the best known and loved Christmas albums of all time (and definitely a lot cooler than Bing Crosby). Featuring 9 bonus tracks, all recorded in 1957." High quality heavyweight red vinyl.
Pocketful of Rainbows/Crawfish
Rockabilly, R&B or soul -- no matter what your bag, the one and only
has enough power, presence and panache to offer something for everyone, and here are two alternate takes from Elvis soundtracks,
. "Pocketful of Rainbows" is a more dancefloor-friendly take with a stronger rhythm section, which was aching for 45 release, while on the flip we have an alternate take of "Crawfish" with
Jean "Kitty" Bilbrew
matching Elvis in the mix.
