Overlooked Gems: "So Glad Your Mine"
Our man recorded this gloriously down and dirty Arthur Crudup track in the late January session of 1956. Bristling with a delightfully decadent burlesque feel, this ode to a girl shaped like a ‘cannonball’ is one of the best Elvis tracks of the fifties, and is highlighted by a menacingly smooth vocal by EP as well as some unforgettable piano work by Shorty Long. A real masterpiece and one of the best tracks off the fabulous second LP.
