    With the international chart-topping success of ELVIS: 30 #1 HITS, the handlers of Elvis Presley's estate attempt to capture lightning in a bottle again with ELVIS: 2ND TO NONE. This compilation does not disappoint, thanks to a mix of number one hits, miscellaneous movie numbers and much-loved favorites. There's even a Paul Oakenfold remix of "Rubberneckin'" that seeks to replicate the success of the JXL radio edit remix of "A Little Less Conversation" from the aforementioned anthology.
    With this chronologically arranged track listing, it's interesting to trace the King's musical influences, be it Arthur "Big Boy" Crudup ("That's All Right"), Charlie Feathers ("I Forgot to Remember to Forget"), or Carl Perkins ("Blue Suede Shoes"). Likewise for the stable of songwriters he drew from, including the teams of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller ("Love Me," "Loving You") and Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman ("Little Sister," "A Mess of Blues"). Most impressive are the nuggets plucked off numerous Presley soundtracks, including JAILHOUSE ROCK, FUN IN ACAPULCO, VIVA LAS VEGAS and BLUE HAWAII. Toss in the previously unreleased "I'm a Roustabout," and 2ND TO NONE becomes an essential for diehard and casual Elvis fans alike.
    Artist Bio
    Elvis Presley Elvis Aaron Presley, known the world over by just his first name, is regarded as one of the most important figures in 20th century music and popular culture. He permanently altered the landscape of American music with a sound and style that uniquely combined diverse and seemingly disparate musical influences. In the process, he ushered in a music revolution that triggered a global-scale cultural transformation. Elvis was passionate about an extensive and varied array of music. His influences included the pop ballads and country music of his day, the gospel music he heard in church and at the all-night gospel sings he frequently attended, and the black R&B he absorbed on Memphis’ historic Beale Street as a teenager. His aspiration was to take the music that affected him and make it his own. Nobody could have predicted how successfully Elvis would achieve his ambition, or the impact he would have on music and society. He meshed a diversity of musical influences, creating a sound and style that had never been heard or seen. In the process, he became the first genuine Rock & Roll icon, providing a new generation with a unique sound to call its own. Elvis’ career experienced ebbs and flows, but there are two defining periods in his musical history: 1955-56, when he achieved national and worldwide recognition with a sound that blurred the lines between genres; and in the 1970’s when, after two separate comebacks, he established an iconic image through extensive touring and elaborate performances. Today, 26 years after his death, his success as an artist stands untouched and Elvis Presley remains the undisputed King of Rock & Roll™. Elvis’ career was not born with Rock & Roll. In his earliest recordings with Sam Phillips at Sun Records in 1954, Elvis sang one ballad after another. He failed, however, to impress Phillips who thought the raw talent before him could not compete with the polished likes of Eddie Fisher, Dean Martin and Johnny Ray – the definitive crooners of the day. Fooling around between takes, Elvis jumped into an unrehearsed version of blues man Arthur Crudups’ "That’s All Right." The sound – a white man singing black-influenced music – was precisely what Phillips was waiting for and anxious to promote. The sound Elvis created in 1954-55, just before exploding onto the scene the next year, was revolutionary. In his earliest performances, Elvis added R&B to country and vice versa, melding musical genres that, previously, had remained distinct. Elvis, while criticized for eradicating the narrowly defined and independent pop and country music genres of the times, was paving the way for the full-fledged introduction of a new musical style that was to be known the world over as rock & roll.
