    2nd to None

    E2TN is a worthy follow up to last year's smash "Elvis 30 #1 Hits. Following the formula established by last year's multi-million selling CD, E2TN contains 30 tracks that span the entire spectrum of the King's amazingly prolific career. Early hits like the revolutionary "That's Alright Mama" and a rollicking cover of Carl Perkins' "Blue Suede Shoes" capture the youthful innocence and unbridled passion Presley used to turn the music world on its ear in the early 1950s. The collection contains some of his better motion picture soundtrack tunes...gems like "Bossa Nova Baby," "Trouble," and "Viva Las Vegas" represent the very best of Elvis's voluminous, albeit, mediocre catalog of movie recordings. E2TN also showcases a varied selection from Presley's post-1968 Comeback era. Of the bunch, 1968's homage to Martin Luther King, "If I Can Dream" and a raucous cover of Chuck Berry's "Promised Land" are the standouts; the former demonstrating Elvis at his emotionally charged best, the latter, effectively recalling the vitality of his early career! The CD ends on two high notes: the never before released "I'm a Roustabout" and a remixed version of the "Rubberneckin." "Roustabout" is significant because it was just recently discovered...sure, the sound quality is not the best and the lyrics are a little hokey, but hey, it's a bona fide rarity. "Rubberneckin", like last year's #1 single "A Little Less Conversation," is a heretofore obscure 1960s song masterfully remixed to reflect the music and dance tastes of the 21st Century. While some Elvis purists will no doubt find this appalling, there is no denying that this tactic perpetuates the King's legacy by introducing him to generations of new fans...every time we get into the car, my kids beg me to play the song. I highly recommend the people at BMGH continue the remix strategy, and offer the following as potential candidates for a makeover: "Patch it Up," "Long Legged Girl," "Big Boss Man," "Any Day Now," and "Fools Fall in Love." On a final note, my version of the CD contained an extra bonus two song disk that included an alternate take of "Viva Las Vegas" and a moving mid-1970s version of "Bridge Over Troubled Waters." I know two other people who have purchased E2TN and neither included the bonus disk. Anyone out there shed light on this?
