50's Elvis v.s. other 50's rockers
In 1992 Sony BMG released the box set the King of Rock n' roll the essential 50's master, The general consensus is that Elvis created his greatest music and most consistent material during this decade with songs like That's alright, Blue moon of Kentucky, Mystery Train, Heartbreak hotel, Don't be cruel, Hound dog, Jailhouse Rock etc. but how do you think Elvis 50's work compared to the other rock n'' roll pioneers: Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Buddy Holly, Bill Hailey, Everly Brothers and Ricky Nelson.
I think they all recorded classic songs during this period but I would put Elvis above them even though he did record some weak material such as Hard headed woman, Wear your ring, my wish came true etc. Chuck Berry, Diddley, Richard, Hailey, The Everly's, Holly, Nelson, Lewis all recorded classic material how would you compare Elvis 50's material against theirs?
I hope I get a lot of replies for this thread and I hope to get everyone that posts on this board their opinions on this subject.
