This is an odds and sods collection along the lines of Coda by Led Zeppelin and Let It Be by The Beatles. But it is well put together which is something that can't be said for Let It Be and to a lesser extent for Coda. Pink Floyd wrapped things up as a ... See full review

According to 45cat web site it was, yes. Released in the USA on RCA Victor Dec.1955, hot on the heels of it's previous issue on Sun records.

Couldn't agree more. I got the original vinyl album when it came out in 1971 and it quickly became worn out from repeated plays. Then I moved up to the CD version in the late 80's because they sounded much better than vinyl and didn't wear out. But I ... See full review

An absolutely dreadful album, the fact that it was recorded in only a week and most of the tracks were laid down in just one take is proof that this was shoddy and rushed.
None of the songs stay in the memory even after more than one listen. Avoid it ... See full review

This record would have made it to Number One in the UK charts if RCA had released The Girl Of My Best Friend as the A side and not the other way round. In the U.S. A Mess Of Blues was on the B side of It's Now Or Never.

The label indicates that this is a Stereo recording but on listening to the album it definitely comes across as sounding MONO.

Definitely sounds Mono when one listens to it despite the "Stereo" wording on the label.

A CD single in HMV purple bearing the HMV Cat. number but on the RCA Victor label and in a red RCA inner sleeve ??? They aren't even allowed to show Nipper the Dog because of copyright issues in Europe. A right mess by Sony/BMG.

The Guiness Book of Hit Singles has What Do You Want To Make These Eyes At Me For as the hit and it is that side that the record is remembered for as well as being the one that received all the air play.

Thankfully RCA didn't mess around too much with this before releasing it. They left it in Mono and apart from adding some echo to Elvis' vocals it comes across better than some of his other early work that ended up with the infamous "Electronically ... See full review

RCA should not have been allowed to get away with this. Heartbreak Hotel Cat.number 7M 385 was in fact a UK only release on His Masters Voice label in 1956. At that time HMV were the sole distributor of all Elvis' records in the UK, not RCA. Even the ... See full review

RCA should not have included this in it's much publicised re-issue of Elvis No.1's. RCA 1088 never made it to No.1 when it was released as a single in 1958. Both Heartbreak Hotel and All Shook Up were released separately as singles before 1958 in the UK ... See full review
