'King' Of The World
RCA's new Elvis Presley compilation "Elvis 2nd to None" sports a previously unreleased song recorded 40 years ago but only recently unearthed. "I'm a Roustabout," originally was written and recorded for the 1964 Presley film "Roustabout," but was rejected by producers and never used. A completely different tune ultimately became the title song for both the movie and the No. 1 album of the same name.
"Elvis 2nd to None" will be the follow-up to last year's compilation album "ELV1S 30 #1 Hits," which has sold 9 million copies worldwide, according to the label. Among the hits from that album was the No. 1 dance remix of the previously obscure 1968 Presley tune, "A Little Less Conversation."
The latest Elvis set will feature additional No. 1 hits from the King and lesser-known classics such as his first recorded single, "That's All Right," and a remixed version of the 1969 song "Rubberneckin," given a contemporary treatment by leading DJ Paul Oakenfold.
