Elvis Presley – Tomorrow Night (1954)

Elvis Presley at his purest.

Taken from his early recordings for Sun Records, “Tomorrow Night” confirms Elvis as one of the greatest voices in history.

The first recording of this song was made by Lonnie Johnson in 1948 but the track was actually written by Sam Coslow and Will Grosz.

The Lonnie Johnson recording has a rougher, rawer, feel to it which might appeal to some.

However, Elvis’ recording strips the music back to the barest bones and, as his voice soars over the spectral backing, genius is revealed …

From the same sessions, I’ve already posted Presley’s definitive reading of Blue Moon here.
