ELVIS PRESLEY - GUITAR MAN - 1981
In 1980 Elvis' long-time producer and friend, Felton Jarvis went back into the studio with a bunch of Elvis vocal tracks to produce a 'new' Elvis album. No one else would have had better insight into what kind of music Elvis might have recorded had he been alive in 1980. The end result was the 'Guitar Man' album released early in 1981 (which is included in this collection, songs 3 through 12). The album was a moderate success reaching number 49 on the album chart and number 6 on the country album chart in the US. (In Australia the album made #39) The single 'Guitar Man' did better, reaching 28 on the Pop Chart, 16 on the Adult Contemporary Chart, and number 1 on the Country Chart in the US (this turned out to be Elvis' last appearance in the US Top 40 and his last US number 1 single until 2002 when the 'A Little Less Conversation' remix topped the US singles sales chart). The album and the song were also modest hits in the UK. 'Loving Arms' was released as the second single from the album and was a Top Ten Country hit. Unfortunately Jarvis died just before the album was released and did not see the fruits of his labor.
