And I think that BMG is heading in the right direction with the upcoming ELVIS75 - GOOD ROCKIN' TONIGHT box set!! Just look at some of the lesser known, lesser used songs that are going to be included:
* MY HAPPINESS
* ONE SIDED LOVE AFFAIR
* I'M GONNA SIT RIGHT DOWN AND CRY (OVER YOU)
* THE THRILL OF YOUR LOVE
* DOIN' THE BEST I CAN
* THERE'S ALWAYS ME
* I NEED SOMEBODY TO LEAN ON
* IT HURTS ME
* THIS IS MY HEAVEN
* TOMORROW IS A LONG TIME
* I'M LEAVIN'
* LOVING ARMS
* GOOD TIME CHARLIE'S GOT THE BLUES
While all of the usual suspects are included on the set too (HOUND DOG, DON'T BE CRUEL, etc.) for the millionth time, the fact that the above listed songs are being included on a mainstream release proves (at least for this release) that BMG seems to be digging a little deeper into the regular Elvis catalog to come up with some lesser-known songs to hopefully pull in some new fans.
Of course, there are dozens of other lesser-used songs that could have been included in this set to really open the Elvis catalog up to the new, casual Elvis fans...but one step at a time...
Let's hope this is THAT step in the right direction!!!
