“So what it boils down to was Elvis produced his own records. He came to the session, picked the songs, and if something in the arrangement was changed, he was the one to change it. Everything was worked out spontaneously. Nothing was really rehearsed. Many of the important decisions normally made previous to a recording session were made during the session.

“When I first heard Elvis' voice, I just knew that I wasn’t going to work for anybody; and nobody was going to be my boss...Hearing him for the first time was like busting out of jail.”
have you ever listened to asong where elvis fully displays the range and power of his voice.
listen to the following songs and tell me whos a better singer
-if i can drean
- i brlieve
- king creole.
how do people think freddie mercury was better than elvis.
elvis and frank sinatra are the two greatest singers of all time according to most people you ask.
elvis sang EVERYTHING
even look at his christmas songs as an example.
santa claus is back in town - blues
diamond ring for christmas - rock 'n' roll
blue christmas - country
elvis was a far better vocalist than freddie mercury,and freddie mercury cannot even come close to elvis' success.
why would elvis still be the king if freddie mercury was better than him.elvis is the greatest entertainer in history,his stage presence has never been matched.nor has the variability or adaptability in his voice.the only SINGER to rival him is frank sinatra.
