Synopsis

Album Description
Imagine what a world it would be like if Elvis Presley hadn't died, weaned himself of drugs, got back in shape and went on to keep recording. Well, The King is one Elvis imitator that dares to dream of this scenario and make it come true as well. His singing voice is dead on accurate in the guise of Presley's and while this may be sacrilege to some, it presents some interesting possibilities to others. For this debut, The King meets Nirvana, Marvin Gaye, T. Rex, Joy Division, The Kinks, Jimi Hendrix.. and ultimately, The King's rendition of the theme to "New York New York". Adopt your willing suspension of disbelief and imagine.....

CD Reviews

James Brown is The King
Johnny Heering | Bethel, CT United States | 04/22/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

"The King is James Brown, an Irish postman. He was discovered singing Elvis songs at a karaoke bar. A record producer had the idea to record the Nirvana song "Come As You Are" with an Elvis impersonator, and he was struck by how much Brown sounded like Elvis. Yes, he actually does sound a lot like Elvis. Anyway, after they recorded the Nirvana song, they decided to record a whole album of songs by dead rockers. Yes, it's an album of songs by dead people sung by an Elvis impersonator. Somewhat surprisingly, the songs are played "straight". The songs aren't played for laughs at all. They are somewhat interesting for the most part, with "Come As You Are" being the best of the lot. If that sounds like something you would be interested in, here it is."
The King is wonderful

"I believe that anyone who loves Elvis will love this album, ("Gravelands"), and "Return to Splender". His rendition of "Song to the Siren" is haunting and lovely."
