I voted for:-
Baby lets play house
Mystery Train
Lawdy Miss Clawdy
Gentle On My mind
Love Letters
Memories
How Great Thou Art
You'll Never walk Alone
He Touched me
Anyway You Want Me
You Don't Have to Sa yoou Love me
Unchained Melody
Trouble
Bossa Nova Baby
Rubberneckin'
Long Black Limousine
Kentucky Rain
For The Good TImes
You've Lost That Loving Feelin'
Bride Over Troubld Waters
Walk A Mile in my Shoes

I Can't find the R&B category but they've listed it as one. This is where some of his best songs would come under.

It was very hard just to pick 3 songs from each category but, as you can see, i didn't choose any of his hits so it wouldn't be the usual compliaton album. I picked his big covers like BOTW, Unchained Melody, YLTLF because maybe non fans may want to hear his versions, Who knows?

It's a nice idea but the title of the album would be off putting to non fans and it needs to appeal to them to make it a success. It could be called something like 'Could You Become an Elvis Fan?'

Why are they releasing the album 2 weeks before the anniversary? is this when the mass pubilicity will start?

I voted today, but was sorry that What Now My Love or Promised Lane were not included, but at least Long Black Limousine was there..... I also sent a picture but did not order a copy of the mosaic as the price was very high.

I just asked for my name on the album and that cost me £13.98 including postage.
I did not send my photo.
I would be happy to see my name in print on this album.

They are hoping it will chart soon after release.

Iliked your selection. Given the right publicity I am sure this CD will chart. We can only spread the word and get as many fans as possible to contribute to this. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/rockon.gif)

I like the idea: Fans that choose their favorites to make an album...
Like "Elvis in demand" at the time...

The songs too choose from however offer no real suprises...
Their are all very good/great tracks, but there is no room voor obscure material to discover by the casual buyer.
So i guess it will be another "greatest hits" compilation.... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/undecided.gif)

Should the 'If I Am An Elvis Fan' release gain a Top 10 placing on the UK Album Charts it will be Elvis' 50th. No other artist or group can claim so many. I have informed SONY(UK).

SONY(UK) state that 'I Am An Elvis Fan' will not get a UK release. Rumour has it that a programme similar to the following (but with Elvis) will take place later in the year and this may have influenced Sony's decision not to release IAAEF:

It would certainly give his record sales a boost in the UK.
