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.
