LOVING YOU [180G BLUE VINYL LP]
Artist: ELVIS PRESLEY
Cat No: NOTLP308
Released in 1957, Loving You did very well at box offices around the world. In the UK the album was issued on 10-inch vinyl and topped the album charts featuring popular tracks Mean Woman Blues, (Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear, Got A Lot O’ Livin’ To Do!, Party, Lonesome Cowboy, Hot Dog and the title song Loving You. In the US, the album was issued on 12-inch vinyl with four extra additional tracks topping the US album charts for 10 weeks. Those four songs are equally strong with Elvis covering Blueberry Hill, I Need You So and Have I Told You Lately That I Love You? Plus, the original version of Don’t Leave Me Now, which he would later re-record for his next film, Jailhouse Rock. The reception of the film placed Elvis among the biggest selling box office stars, and he was now managing both a musical and acting career with the call of the US Army draft.
