Something For Everybody
Elvis’ first non-soundtrack album in over a year save for the religious LP, His Hand In Mine. Despite its Number One position on the charts, it sold only 250,000 copies, about one third the total for the G.I. Blues soundtrack. It was cut in one night in Nashville with the aim of recording an album, which may be the explanation for its homogeneity of mood and sound (with the notable exception of “I Slipped, I Stumbled, I Fell”). It may also account for the lack of soaring ambition that can come from investing everything in a single song. Certainly Elvis’ voice never sounded better, and his performance on a number of the tracks – particularly two Don Robertson ballads, “Starting Today” and “There’s Always Me” – firmly established him in his chosen new role as an interpreter of song.
