Sure he crapped out but Elvis was a Heavyweight champion in his day, his version of Chuck Berry's "Promised Land" is one of my favourite ever tracks.

is that the one with aswad?

I often play music at parties that are not exclusively reggae/soul/funk.

I've recently taken to playing 'Trouble' at the start of my set.

Goes down a storm back to back with 'Golden hen' (or anything else that opens up with horns for that matter).

Another Elvis tune I really like is 'Crawfish'.

And I agree with Ekki on the Sun stuff - very nice - my wife really likes this LP

But you all really should check out the link in my first post and sometimes watch Bubba Ho-Tep, very funny & strange film!

No one has mentioned Scotty Moore, the brilliant guitarist :?:

So let's Keith Richards do it:
Everyone else wanted to be Elvis, I wanted to be Scotty.
