About Elvis Cd
Known to millions as 'The King of Rock 'n' Roll', Elvis Aaron Presley was one of the most famous American singing icons to grace the music industry. Not just a singer, Elvis was also a producer and an accomplished actor. His two self-titled albums, 'Elvis' and 'Elvis Presley', were the first two studio albums he recorded in 1956. His music career that spanned two decades resulted in 104 Top 40 hits with 17 singles reaching #1 on the charts. With global record sales reportedly passing the one billion mark, Elvis remains the world's best-selling solo artist till date. Winning 3 Grammy awards in 1967, 1972, and 1974 for his gospel records, paved the way for a Grammy Award for Lifetime Achievement at the ripe age of 36. He is one of only four artists to ever have two albums in the Top 5 on the albums charts simultaneously. In a list of the greatest English language singers of the 20th century published by BBC Radio, Elvis ranked 2nd only to the great Frank Sinatra. As a result of his unmatched success on the Billboard's Top 100 singles chart, Presley beat The Beatles to the title of the 'No. 1 Act of the Rock Era'. The soundtrack to Lilo and Stitch, the Disney animated film, features more Elvis Presley songs than in any of the movies he had starred in, a testament to his omnipresent popularity even years after his demise. To pay tribute to the legend of Elvis, a compilation of his # 1 hits from the US and the UK was being produced in 2002. The remix of 'A Little Less Conversation' was a last minute addition to that compilation, eventually titled 'Elv1s: 30', making it a 31-track list. The enormous success of this remix, inspired world famous DJ Paul Oakenfold to remix an old Elvis favorite 'Rubberneckin' in 2003. It made the Top 5 in the UK and the Top 3 in Australia and later went on to be added in another Elvis compilation album called '2nd To None'. Even with phenomenal sales of his recent compilation albums, Elvis classics like 'Love Me Tender', 'Jail House Rock' and 'Unchained Melody' still capture the hearts of millions around the world, justifying his title as 'The King'.
