What music do you compile for a non fan ?
Bobby asked this rhetorical question, "What music do you compile for a non fan ?" as I had mentioned I had done this before.
Well the great thing is it depends on what kind of music the other person likes: very broadly, Rock n Roll, Blues, Country and for want of a better word Sentimental and soft.
I usually make a 6 to 10 song compilation if I know the attention span of the person....and then Elvis does the rest. I usually use the alternate takes apart from a very few "original masters" for eg "Long Black Limousine"-
I will list a "Blues Demo CD " I made recently:
Baby what you want me to do
All I needed was the rain
High heel sneakers
Down in the Alley ( a 70's rehearsal)
Big Boss Man
Long Black Limousine
One night of Sin
Clean up your own backyard
Stranger in myown hometown
I also explain that some of these songs come form Elvis's admittedly "B movies"-
Soft & Sentimental
I'm falling in love tonight
Anything thats part of you
Love me tonight
more to follow ....
