With the international chart-topping success of ELVIS: 30 #1 HITS, the handlers of Elvis Presley's estate attempt to capture lightning in a bottle again with ELVIS: 2ND TO NONE. This compilation does not disappoint, thanks to a mix of number one hits, miscellaneous movie numbers and much-loved favorites. There's even a Paul Oakenfold remix of "Rubberneckin'" that seeks to replicate the success of the JXL radio edit remix of "A Little Less Conversation" from the aforementioned anthology.
With this chronologically arranged track listing, it's interesting to trace the King's musical influences, be it Arthur "Big Boy" Crudup ("That's All Right"), Charlie Feathers ("I Forgot to Remember to Forget"), or Carl Perkins ("Blue Suede Shoes"). Likewise for the stable of songwriters he drew from, including the teams of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller ("Love Me," "Loving You") and Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman ("Little Sister," "A Mess of Blues"). Most impressive are the nuggets plucked off numerous Presley soundtracks, including JAILHOUSE ROCK, FUN IN ACAPULCO, VIVA LAS VEGAS and BLUE HAWAII. Toss in the previously unreleased "I'm a Roustabout," and 2ND TO NONE becomes an essential for diehard and casual Elvis fans alike.
