#25 (oops) Elvis "Elvis is Back!"
Seems I got this one out of order; it's supposed to be #24. Ah, well, not a huge deal. This is Elvis' first album after being released from the army. Apparently the kids were going nuts waiting for his return and they rushed an album out as soon as they could. That being said, to me, this is a mixed bag. Some of his tunes sound so amazingly 50s, they're already passé. Then there's "Fever," which, I have to admit, Elvis belts out amazingly well and seductively. I bet there was a lot of teen sighing around that song. I don't generally listen to Elvis but this one was ok. Again, not his best to me, but had a few highlights that are quintessentially Elvis.
