Elvis Presley: He Was The One 'Elvis Sings Aaron Schroeder' CD (RSD 2023)

Brand :


Between 1956 and 1962 Aaron Schroeder wrote no fewer than seventeen songs for Elvis... and five of them went to N° 1! This body of work was sometimes co-signed by Schroeder with around fifteen others, most of them very prolific songwriters themselves. This album brings together mainly alternate takes of songs recorded over the above period, and they are taken from sessions for studio recordings or for films. A great number of them were released as singles, and they occupied the upper reaches of sales charts in countries across the world, like Any Way You Want Me for example, which was the B-side of Love Me Tender.
