    Thx Tommy! hope to finish this one next week...but i have a little problem with the rhythm tracks..don't want to use only material from the 50's or early 60's..and the tracks have to be on the recent cd releases by sony/bmg/rca for the best sound..

    30. Pledging My Love (Alt Take on Platinum)

    *Maybe some blue eyed sould could fit in: "I Got A Thing ABout You Baby", "Anyday Now" "Long Black Limousine", leaving out some others?

    Don't know if "Polk Salad Annie" could qualify, maybe not, now "Burning Love" was originally a R&B single by Arthur Alexander, but Elvis record is more R&R that R&B, but maybe also could be a choice.

    "That's All Right", and "Baby Le'ts Play House", where originally R&R songs, but in Elvis hands they became Rockabilly by definition, so I don't think they qualify R&B. "Trying To Get To YOu" "Guitar Man" & "After Loving You" are more country than blues than blues or R&B, but they pass as them anyhow, as they are way blues and R&B infected performances anyway, so could be possible choices.

    Many 50's and early 60's Presley charted high in the top ten R&B charts, stuff like Don't, Jailhouse Rock, All Shook Up, Wear My Ring, Stuck on You, Are You Lonesome Tonight. Can't say if that made of them candidates for an Elvis R&B collection.

    So anyway, here's a lot of tracks to help you choose for your CD project.

    Re: Rhythm & Blues Preview

    I woul'd think of another title; there is already an album with the title Rythm & Blues containg 1973 recordings. People might get confused.....
    But it's your own thing.....

    Really great design and a good idea.
    Maybe you could include "Big Boss Man", "Shake a hand" and "Power of my love"?
