ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
No jumpsuits, no wigs and no lookalikes. Just 7 passionate musicians, committed to deliver the music with the nerve and energy an artist like Elvis deserves. Singer Kent Wennman would probably qualify as the number one Elvis NON look alike but when it comes to love and respect for Elvis' music, he is one of the best. This third output includes 2 songs from the famous Stax sessions in 1973, 2 songs from Elvis most difficult period in 1972 and of course Shake a hand from Elvis´ last studio recording 1975 (all his recordings after 1975 were done in the Djungle Room).

It's not about imitation, it's about love!
I had the two first minialbums by Orange. They have such personal interpretations! Now Orange is here with their third minialbum with songs associated with the King. This time with more gospel flavour. Afro Choir is there to provide gospel feeling. What makes this album so good is that it is not about imitation. It is about love. Singer Kent Wennman sings like himself but with personality and feeling. For the most it's very good.

What a nice surprise!
The CD is a very nice surprise and once again Orange has succeded in giving Elvis new life. I've been listening to it over and over again. Best quality on both sound, performance and song selection.

They sound like they mean it!
Personally I am very tired of Elvis covers but with this fat Afro Choir in his back Mr. Wennman pulls it off and this is a record even hardcore Elvisfans will accept.Production is very nice and they sound like they really mean it. And thank God, Jailhouse rock is not included.

Elvis songs treated with respect!
Orange from Uppsala continue to make Elvis songs their own way. The CD starts with a magnificent version of Shake a hand. Plenty of blues and soul and the amazing Afro choir adds a lot to the sound. Orange add a new dimension to songs like Always on my mind and So high. and they treat Elvis with a lot of respect. Buy this record if you want to hear well-known Elvis songs in a new way.
