Elvis in Thailand

Recently, a friend returned from a holiday in Thailand and brought me a surprise present...a set of five Elvis cassettes.

As he told me, they didn't cost much but he thought I might appreciate them, which I certainly did.

The five cassettes were:

  • Elvis Presley #1 (Love Song or G.I. Bule/Blue Hawaii)
  • Elvis Presley #2 (Poppular) - and that's not my spelling error!
  • Elvis Presley #3 *(Rock 'N' Roll)
  • Elvis vol. 2 (Jailhouse Dog) - yip, that its title!
  • Elvis 50 Years of Gold

Apart from the Jailhouse Dog title, there were many other humorous sounding tracks on the five cassettes:

  • Please Don't Drag That Thing Around
  • I Big of You
  • With Craft
  • Girl Girl Girl
  • Rock-A-Hura Baby
  • Mascico
  • Were My Ring Around Your Neck

and my favourites:

  • I Don't Want To Be Tired
  • Itocats
  • Island of the Chrimp

It is a clear case of some basic English lessons being needed but there again wouldn't that take the fun out of these releases!
