After catching the programme on TV Elvis recently, has made me realise what a rather lovely and unique voice this man had.

I love so many of his songs (I've just purchased another CD)

Here's one I just put on the Break-Up songs thread

Not keen on this song, nor any of the other MOR songs he recorded in the seventies. Nor am I keen on the bad pop songs written for bad films he recorded in the sixties.

His fifties rock 'n' roll, especially those tracks he recorded at Sam Phillips' Sun studio, is a different matter entirely. It is without question some of my favourite music ever.

Gertrude, I promise you there are many, many real gems in Elvis' 60s and 70s releases.

Yes, his Sun records were innovative and unique and it's the done thing to say that was his only valuable output, but delve deeper than that and there is much more to him than that. Have a listen to From Elvis in Memphis (1969) for starters.

I hope the programme introduced Elvis to a younger audience - as they say, he wasn't called the King for nothing!

Brilliant! I think once you've listened to Any Day Now, Long Black Limousine, Gentle on My Mind etc, you'll know that Elvis post 1960 is well worth listening to!

I like quite a few Elvis songs, but if I had to pick one favourite, it would probably be this.......

Elvis. From achingly tender in "Don't" and "Young and Beautiful" to oozing raw sex appeal in "One Night Of Sin".

On top of that, the most beautiful man ever.
