The King. Influenced everyone in Britain, and a lot in America.(Jack White, for example, to be seen strumming a mandoline in Cold Mountain).
   His records ranged from the sublime to the ridiculous. But has there ever been a more eclectic artist? great range of songs: who else would have recorded all the following
Rock Island Line
Does your chewing gum lose it's flavour?
Love is strange
My Lagan Love
Miss Otis regrets
Nobody's Child
My old man's a dustman
The party's over
Beans in your ears
Frankie and Johnny
Aunty Maggie's Remedy
Tit Bits
Worl Cup Willie
As far as I know he recorded no bach or Moazart but there may well be tapes mouldering in a basement that may surface soon.
