Best Elvis Songs A-E - Tutorials

A Big Hunk Of Love
Chords - - Buy

Elvis recorded this song in the summer of 1958 during his stint in the Army and it was the only recording session he did while in the service, which took place in Nashville. In four takes they had the song in the can and they spliced takes 3 and 4 to get the final version, which was good enough to take the song to #1 the following summer in 1959.



A Fool Such As I
Chords - - Buy

Hank Snow was the first to record this song back in 1952 with a #4 hit on the country charts. Elvis recorded his version as a B-side which became a #2 in the US and a #1 hit in he UK in late 1959. Strangely, Col Parker was also also Hank Snow's manager and it was thru Hank, that the Col met Elvis.



A Mess Of Blues

Elvis had a #32 in the US and a #2 in the UK with his 1960 release of A Mess Of Blues. Tom Jones, Peter & Gordon, John Hiatt and Status Quo all covered this song.

This number has become one of the best Elvis songs from 1957 when it topped the R&B chart, the Billboard Top 100 and the Country charts. Otis Blackwell wrote the song but gave Elvis a writing credit in order to get the recording as the story goes.

How The Web Was Woven

Jackie Lomax recorded this song back in 1970 with ex-Beatle George Harrison producing the recording. Clive Westlake and David Most wrote the song which was pitched to Elvis through Freddy Bienstock, who often selected songs for the Elvis films and his early albums.

Elvis apparently liked the song and recorded his version later in Nov 1970 for his 'That's The Way It Is" album. That was after Lomax released his version earlier in 1970. A single was released in 1971 and did well for Elvis in the UK and Europe.
