Cat No: NOTLP307


In January 1958, Elvis was officially drafted by the U.S. government for a two-year term of Military Service. Many assumed he would enter the U.S. Special Service as an entertainer, but the Colonel didn’t feel that the proposed arrangements suggested by both the Army and Navy were not in Elvis’ best interest. So Elvis remained as an ordinary G.I. Upon completion, he returned to civilian life in the March of 1960 and shot the musical-comedy G.I. Blues in Hollywood. The soundtrack was then released in October, and stayed at Number 1 in the American charts for ten weeks. Musically, it was a move away from the Rock’n’Roll genre, with the exception of Carl Perkins’ Blue Suede Shoes. Definitely an LP for true fans, movie buffs and collectors.
