1-CD with 36-page booklet, 33 tracks. Total playing time approx. 79 minutes

• A unique collection of originals and rare cover versions of famous Elvis tunes.
• This second volume continues exactly where volume one ended. It puts the spotlight on songs that Elvis had recorded in-between 1958 and 1962.
• Did you know that the famous girl group The Marvelettes covered Elvis and what famous Hollywood actor Anthony Perkins has in common with Elvis Presley?
• More rare recordings are included here, many of them for the first time on CD!

• The compilation also presents rare British Rock 'n' Rollers with their versions of Elvis-songs, including some hard-to-cover ballads.
• We have of course some originals that Elvis influenced. Especially The Blackwood Brothers in Elvis' favorite gospel field and the rare original of Shoppin' Around by Joel Grey!
• Australian rockers, Johnny Devlin and Bryan Davies, are included with their hard-to-find versions of A Big Hunk O' Love and Slicin' Sand.
• Crooners, rockers, R&B acts, all influenced by Elvis Presley, plus songs that Elvis influenced himself while he was working extensively on his career as a Hollywood actor.
• The fine booklet includes rare photos and memorabilia plus liner notes by the German Elvis Presley expert Helmut Radermacher.

Volume 2 continues where Volume 1 has ended
Where did Elvis Presley got his inspirations from? This is still the main question behind the concept for this second compilation. Elvis Presley's musical style and his performances on stage and in Hollywood movies were as unique as it can be but we also put a spotlight on Elvis Presley's influences by other musicians and situations in Elvis Presley's life! 

How did Elvis Presley continue to influence the music world during the period of the late 1950s to the early 1960s? This is the next question we examine with the second compilation. How did other performers react on Elvis Presley in the late 50s while Elvis' career was interrupted due to his Army service? How's the reaction by musicians from other countries than the US? Listen to this unique compilation and you get the answers! 

Rare tracks
Many rare recordings are compiled here, some for the first time on CD!


We have rare versions of Elvis songs from British and American low budget labels like Eli Whitney, Bobby Stevens aka Ray Pilgrim, or Paul Rich.
