The remastered Hot 100 of Elvis classics in one beautifully-packaged four-CD boxed set spans the breadth of Presley’s monumental, rags-to-riches career, Elvis 75 – Good Rockin’ Tonight presents an artist who exploded in the mid-1950s, when he shook up a buttoned-down world with his mold-breaking music, not to mention his sideburns, swiveling hips, flamboyant wardrobe, and raw sexuality. Until his death at 42 in 1977, he would move from rockabilly, rhythm and blues, bluegrass, and rock ‘n’ roll to country, pop, gospel, and even to light operatic fare to become one of the greatest and most-beloved entertainers the world has ever known. He would also sell several hundred million records.

 This definitive set has the chart-topping hits, numbers from his movies, deep cuts from various gold and platinum albums, and exciting in-concert performances. Featuring rare photographs and an incisive essay by respected music writer Billy Altman, ELVIS 75 repeatedly demonstrates that, to paraphrase one of his more famous album titles, 50,000,000 Elvis fans — and counting — can’t be wrong.

“So Glad You’re Mine” – Elvis Presley

(words & music by Arthur Crudup)
My baby’s long and tall,
She’s like a cannonball.
Say, everytime she loves me,
Lordly, you can hear me squall.
She cried, Ooo-wee.
I believe I’ll change my mind.
She said, “I’m so glad I’m living”.
I cried, “I’m so glad you’re mine”.

My baby knows just how
To treat me right.
Gives me plenty loving
Morning, noon, and night.
She cried, Ooo-wee.
I believe I’ll change my mind.
She said, “I’m so glad I’m living”.
I cried, “I’m so glad you’re mine”.

When my baby does what she does to me,
I climb the highest mountain,
Dive in the deepest sea.
She cried, Ooo-wee.
I believe I’ll change my mind.
She said, “I’m so glad I’m living”.
I cried, “I’m so glad you’re mine”.

My baby’s lips are red
And sweet like wine,
And when she kisses me,
I get high every time.
She cried, Oo-wee.
I believe I’ll change my mind.
She said, “I’m so glad I’m living”.
I cried, “I’m so glad you’re mine”.

Jeepers Creepers

“Jeepers Creepers” is a popular 1938 song and jazz standard. The music was written by Harry Warren and the lyrics by Johnny Mercer, for the movie Going Places. It was premiered by Louis Armstrong and has since been covered by dozens of other artists.

This song was featured in the 1938 film Going Places starring Richard Powell, Anita Louise, Louis Armstrong and Ronald Reagan. Louis Armstrong plays the part of Gabriel, the trainer of a race horse named Jeepers Creepers. Jeepers Creepers is a very wild horse and can only be soothed enough to let someone ride him when Gabriel plays the song “Jeepers Creepers” on his trumpet or sings it to him. Louis Armstrong’s character, Gabriel, had written the song specifically for the horse, Jeepers Creepers.

“Jeepers Creepers” – Louis Armstrong

Jeepers, creepers….whered ya get them peepers
Jeepers, creepers…whered ya get those eyes
Gosh oh, git up….howd they get so lit up
Gosh oh, gee oh….howd they get that size

Golly gee…when you turn them heaters on
Woe is me…got to put my cheaters on

Jeepers, creepers….whered ya get them peepers
Oh, those weepers….how they hypnotize

(instrumental break)

Jeepers, creepers….whered ya get them peepers
Oh, those weepers….how they hypnotize
Where did ya get those
Golly whered ya get those
Where did ya get them there eyes

All I can say is………………………..

“What A Waste” – Ian Dury and the Blockheads

I could be the driver an articulated lorry
I could be a poet, I wouldn’t need to worry
I could be the teacher in a classroom full of scholars
I could be the sergeant in a squadron full of wallahs

What a waste
What a waste
What a waste
What a waste

Because I chose to play the fool in a six-piece band
First night nerves every one night stand
I should be glad to be so inclined
What a waste! What a waste!
Rock and roll don’t mind

(Schtum)

I could be a lawyer with stratagems and ruses
I could be a doctor with poultices and bruises
I could be a writer with a growing reputation
I could be the ticket man at Fulham Broadway station

What a waste
What a waste
What a waste
What a waste

Because I chose to play the fool in a six-piece band
First night nerves every one night stand
I should be glad to be so inclined
What a waste! What a waste!
Rock and roll don’t mind

I could be the catalyst that sparks the revolution
I could be an inmate in a long-term institution
I could lead to wide extremes, I could do or die
I could yawn and be withdrawn and watch them gallop by

What a waste
What a waste
What a waste
What a waste

Because I chose to play the fool in a six-piece band
First night nerves every one night stand
I should be glad to be so inclined
What a waste! What a waste!
Rock and roll don’t mind

Chose to play the fool in a six-piece band
First night nerves every one night stand
I should be glad to be so inclined

What a waste! What a waste!
Rock and roll don’t mind
What a waste! What a waste!
Rock and roll don’t mind

Chose to play the fool in a six-piece band
First night nerves every one night stand
I should be glad to be so inclined
What a waste! What a waste!
Rock and roll don’t mind
