BARGER'S BOUTIQUE

 

A quarter century plus after his passing, what new can be said about Elvis Presley?  From perhaps worshipful over-adulation for his classic early personnae to cruel mockery of his later fall, many millions of words have been spilled eulogizing, analyzing and satirizing him. 

One way or another, he was the top critical single person in creating rock and roll as a new musical form distinct from its ancestry. Along with Chuck Berry, he took country and blues and a whole bunch of other things, and turned it all into something else.

Leaving aside sociological stuff as much as possible, let's try to consider just the specifics of some of his actual records.

Heartbreak Hotel

Hound Dog

Crying in the Chapel

Trouble/Guitar Man

Run On

Jailhouse Rock

Milkcow Blues Boogie

In the Ghetto
