Presley Style: Lost Elvis Songwriter Demos, 1961-1963 on CD

For fans of Elvis' music and the friends of P.J. Proby an equally exciting and welcome album! Bear Family RecordsĀ® are delighted to announce the release 'P.J. Proby - Presley Style'. This collection of 21 tracks features demonstration recordings for Elvis pitched to him by songwriters, all sung by P.J. Proby. The Elvis management insisted that all songs presented to him, had to be recorded on acetate and submitted for his consideration via his Hill & Range publishers. Competition amongst the songwriters was intense as they created fully produced recordings hoping to catch the ear of Elvis. Many used vocalists who sounded like Elvis, in the hope of giving them the edge, and the voice of P.J. Proby totally fitted the bill. Many of these songs were pitched for specific scenes in Elvis movies and were written accordingly after the songwriters studied the Hollywood script.
