Pic of the Discs

By Jack Bentley


Anybody who thought that Elvis Presley’s Army call-up would put his rock ‘n’ roll career on the rocks had better think again.

For, in spite of the present slump in this kind of music, Elvis is still a big draw. Advance orders are going out in thousands for his latest recording “Hard Headed Woman” (RCA).

It’s such a rhythmic joint thumper that I can forget what Elvis lacks verbally and vocally – and award him my Pic of the Discs prize this week.

I shall be very surprised if it doesn’t top our Hit Parade.

Disc 1958
