Various Artists – True & Faithful – Elvis Soundalikes

£8.99 inc. VAT

JASCD1117

Ever since ELVIS PRESLEY conquered the world, back in 1956, people have tried to clamber aboard the bandwagon, be they producers, record companies, rival singers, or whatever.

Nowadays, many thousands of Elvis imitators earn a living, dressing up as and desperately trying to sing like The King; but back in the day, his imitators merely tried to sound like him.

This eclectic compilation presents thirty-five Elvis ‘wannabe soundalikes’, which range from million-sellers to the downright obscure, all recorded between 1956 and 1962.
