This early bootleg discography from the 1980s is one of those unique books that every Elvis record collector .
This early bootleg discography from the 1980s is one of those unique books that every Elvis record collector should consider. Yup, it's rare but a great addition to any reference. I understand that there are likely mistakes in the book or it is not all inclusive. Aside from that there are 100s of titles listed in great detail. Cotten and Dewitt must have heard every single Elvis bootleg record ever issued, and the authors provide information of when the recordings were made, the packaging, and highlights of each record.
Release Date:January 1983. Publisher:Popular Culture, Ink. Length:412 Pages.
The first book to collect, list, and describe the many bootleg 78s, 45s, PS, EPs, and LPs of Elvis Presley. This includes the good (just about anything on the Audifon label), the bad (some live performances from the '70s that are best forgotten), and the ugly (so many of the cheesy LPs of the early 1970s). Like all Pierian Press books, it is well made.

Presley's original starts with that chordal sliding riff, moving from the key of D to the tune's official key of E flat (although almost no one has recorded the tune in that tune since), punctuated by two raw slaps to the snare drum. Elvis' vocal entry - indeed his entire vocal performance on this track - is an anguished howl, describing a party in the "old cellblock. Rife with images of various inmates rockin' it up, the tune is 12-bar rock & roll at its best, its lyrics virtually timeless.
Jailhouse Rock Lyrics: The warden threw a party in the county jail, The prison band was there and they began to wail . Let's rock, everybody, let's rock Everybody in the whole cell block Was dancing to the Jailhouse Rock
Jailhouse Rock Lyrics: The warden threw a party in the county jail, The prison band was there and they began to wail, The band was jumping and the joint began to swing, You should've heard those. Let's rock, everybody, let's rock Everybody in the whole cell block Was dancing to the Jailhouse Rock. Spider Murphy played the tenor saxophone Little Joe was blowing on the slide trombone The drummer boy from Illinois went crash, boom, bang The whole rhythm section was the Purple Gang.
