Elvis Presley - G.I. Blues Collectors Edition

I believe I have already given my opinion on Elvis here, right? Well, to summarize - I appreciate him more as a cultural milestone than as a singer (he wasn't much of a musician), but I do not wish to slight those who may be great fans of his. We may just have to agree to disagree. I DO believe the burgeoning rock and roll movement took a swift kick in the nuts as soon as he was drafted into service for the Army and sent to Germany. If not for Johnny Cash and Carl Perkins and a few others, it may have extinguished altogether before reaching it's fruition. So, for me, this is one of the more bearable Elvis offerings and is offered as an answer to a request. Please understand that I do read all of the e-mails and comments and would love to fill all the requests and such but I have a backlog of about 200 requests and will get to them as my time allows. I hope htere are some fans out there who do not already have this one and it pleases their ears. Peace.
