Evis: Jailhouse Rock (color version)

Another great song by Elvis. I've read that he did the choreography for this himself. Even with a simple song like Hound Dog, in the studio he had the band do 37+ takes, in the studio, before he was happy with it. He had absolute control in the studio. His piano & guitar styles were simple but were right on the money. Elvis wasn't just a great voice and an incredible performer, he was a first class musician.

Sit back and enjoy!!!
