Elvis Sings The Harmony

After nearly 11 years, label “Reel Trax”, famous for now very rare import CDs “You'll Never Walk Alone” and “Where No One Stands Alone” is back with a new and exciting project, called “Elvis Sings The Harmony”.

Elvis´ love for singing harmony has its roots in his love for gospel choirs. It is absolutely common and even necessary to be able to sing harmony when you do gospel songs, unless you are always on lead vocals. From the very early stages of his career the “King” never really needed to do any harmony part. He had his beloved “Jordanaires” with him who did a great job all of the time. Later on there were plenty of other background singers who always could do the job (and did it of course) absolutely fantastic! Maybe Elvis chose to do his own harmony in the recording studio on a couple of songs because he COULD do it (and very well for sure). Maybe he got the idea from his own “home recordings” which we know quite a few of (as early as 1958)? One thing is clear: First you have to have the ability to do it. There have been many singers in show business who have NOT been able to do their own harmony because they simply did not know how to do it (you´ve got to have an “ear” for that)! Elvis did a great job on all of the songs you hear on this brand new CD, there´s no doubt. The one which is best known is certainly the legendary 1969 recording “Suspicious Minds”. But there sure is much more to explore on “Elvis Sings The Harmony” CD!

All tracks used for this project were taken from best possible sources available to date. Many of songs were individually restored and corrected and some are previously unreleased on CD. This unique release is presented in a de-luxe six-panel digipack with many unusual photos.
