The Skip 5 Show #7: Elvis Presley – One Night Of Sin

Found on CD3 of The Complete 50s Masters boxed set, this song was recorded by the King in 1957, though Smiley Lewis made it a hit one year earlier. The tune sounds a bit like Blueberry Hill, that 50s swing sound, but here it is slowed down a bit. I love how members of the band ever-so-slightly miss the beats a bit, here and there. Rather than detract, it just adds to the atmosphere, lends authenticity. Of course, it’s young Elvis, swinging for the fences with his vocals, my favourite time period of his work.

              I knew there was a reason why we could get along! 🙂 Actually, it’s been ages since I updated my membership, but they know I’m never gonna do it anyway, so I’ll let them chase me (if they want to) instead of chasing them about it…

      Ha, I hadn’t noticed that – leave it to Geoff! No idea if that was chosen that way on purpose, but holy smokes is that a fantastic boxed set. I have the 50s, 60s and 70s sets here. So much Elvis!
