GUEST,Tunesmith Rick Astley anyone? (69* d) RE: Rick Astley anyone? 15 Dec 18


Well, of course, there was a huge amount of jealousy coming from the black musicians BUT by covering material by black artists, Elvis was responsible for raising their profiles.

AND, Elvis's cover versions were in no way inferior to the original versions. Different, yes, but not inferior; indeed, Elvis's cover versions of Arthur Crudup's songs are - to my ears - far superior to the original. As are Elvis's backing musicians.
