Elvis Vx JXL
"A Little Less Conversation"
Musical dynamite for the now generation!
dynamite for the now generation!
- "Baby close your
eyes and listen to the music"
Hip-Hop and Block Rockin' Beats - this
new millennium is the era of the 'Dance Nation' from
which Elvis has been sadly missing. But at last this
sensational remix by JXL shows Elvis standing 'loud
and proud' proving that, once again, he is the King
of Rock n' Roll.
along with me and put your mind at ease"
to this new remix is a revelation. Starting with the original
guitar riff & drums the scene is set as 1968 (the original
was recorded July 3rd for the film "Live A Little, Love A
Little"). Then 10 seconds later the extra percussion kicks
in and the sound explodes - Suddenly Elvis is here and NOW
and rockin' in the new millennium.
Amazingly it sounds so
brand new, yet it is still obviously the same old soundtrack
song. It sounds dynamic - it sounds alive - Teenagers are
voting it as their favourite song of the week!!
C'mon, don't procrastinate"
isn't hallowed ground that is being disturbed; this is Elvis
being allowed to break free of BMG/RCA restraints and being
re-discovered by today's kids - And just in perfect time for
this all-important year.
It's this kind of music that will
debunk the 'fat Elvis' image once and for all and help lead
the new generation to discover what made Elvis so important
in the first place. What a great justification for hearing
more tasteful Elvis remixes.
your mouth and open up your heart and satisfy me"
lot of Elvis fans tend to stick to Elvis' music and don't
listen to what's new in today's scene. However if we want
Elvis' musical legacy to continue we have to realize that
Elvis was the key that opened the door to the 'Rock n' Roll'
revolution in the fifties and that it leads all the way to
the new 'Block Rockin' Beats' of today.
this aggravation ain't satisfactioning me"
Think back to what
RCA did to try and promote Elvis to the new generation after
he died. 'Elvis sings for Children & Grown-ups too' and multiple
other dreadful compilations!! - Elvis must have been turning
in his grave.
Elvis never wanted his music to stand still and
on hearing this remix he must be smiling now.
this becomes his new #1 think how happy he would be, at last
knowing that his music is still alive and recognized by today's
little more bite, a little less bark"
single features the radio edit and a very fine extended mix
which, along with some fabulous percussion work and even a
great 60's organ break, takes the two-minute original to a
glorious 6 minute version. The
single also features Elvis' original track, which is strangely
the shorter 'film edit' rather than the 45 single version.
Baby, I'm tired of talking"
England both Elvis and The Beatles are standing with the equal
record of 17 number 1 songs each. This brand new number 1
hit, in this new Millennium, will crown Elvis once again the
greatest entertainer all time.
is Elvis' most important single since 'Suspicious Minds'.
