Today's Tidbit

For today's mention I have to go all the way back to 1957. What artist could make record label executives rub their greedy hands together with a grin like an enticed cheshire cat? I've inserted an image for reference.

Elvis Presley is who and he had an eight week run at No. 1 on the US singles chart with "All Shook Up". It sold over two million copies that year and is obviously a song that you still hear to this day. Greedy record executives aside Elvis did sing from an honest place with a unique and soulful tone that crossed more then a few boundaries.
