I've got the above album to give away - in time for this Christmas, I hope.

The main Trojan website notes:

Featuring performances by some of Jamaica's finest artists, All Shook Up illustrates the universal appeal of Elvis and his music. In a year that would have seen the King reach his seventieth birthday, interest in Presley's works seems to be at an all-time high - with a slew of his singles placing 5 or higher on the UK pop chart listings throughout 2005. Now Trojan pays its own tribute with this joyous collection of Reggae-fied versions of some of his best-loved hits Smile

A couple of simple(?) multiple choice questions.

1) According to the sleeve notes, how many (reggae versions of) U.K. Pop chart No. 1 hits appear on this album:
A) 4
B) 5
C) 6
D) 7
E) 8

2) Up to the end of 2004, how many weeks had Elvis been spent on the U.K. Pop singles charts:
A) 1,065
B) 1,198
C) 1,265
D) 1,362
E) 1,416

3) I'm not a big fan, but which is my favourite Elvis tune:
A) In The Ghetto
B) Jailhouse Rock
C) Marie's The Name, His Latest Flame
D) Suspicious Minds
E) Wooden Heart

Please give me your answers thus:
1. X)
2. Y)
3. Z)

Usual rules...

First 5 guesses are "free" - no consecutive guesses.

Then 3 tries each member - but not consecutive tries please...

I'll keep an eye on this over the next few days. Clues when/if necessary Wink

Thanks - enjoy Smile Smile

Thanks, TH - you won't be raising a glass of champagne with that guess, I'm afraid...although juxtapositionally (probably the wrong word), it's closer than WJ's.

...I understand your sentiments entirely, Jon - I felt the same way too, when I got this.

I'm listening to it right now (it's up to track 11) and it's so far much better than I expected:
    1. Because I've heard (and groaned at!) Elvis singing "All Shook Up" millions of times, the Jackie Edwards version does sound rather odd
    2. Pat Kelly sounds more like Gregory Isaacs than himself on "Are You Lonesome Tonight?"
    3. Jimmy London's version of "Suspicion" works well, as does...
    4. Eugene Paul (as "Al Cook") doing "Frankie And Johnny" - surprisingly Rolling Eyes sounding more like Sam Cooke
...an enjoyable set so far and a possibility for (even) the sort people who come to our get-togethers/parties Wink

Anyway, summarising the 4 free guesses so far:
    Walt Jabsco UK 1) B 2) D 3) A
    trojanhorse 1) D 2) E 3) A
    Alhazred 1) E 2) A 3) B
    Reggaefire1) E 2) B 3) A
...after the next and last free go, I'll try and indicate how close anyone has got - unless it's guessed correctly next time Smile

Thanks, felix - not right though Confused and that's the 5 free shots used up.

This is how it is:
    Walt Jabsco UK....1) B 2) D 3) A
    trojanhorse.........1) D 2) E 3) A
    Alhazred..............1) E 2) A 3) B
    Reggaefire..........1) E 2) B 3) A
    felix.....................1) C 2) E 3) A
...first clue (for what it's worth) is that 2 of the 3 correct answers have been guessed, though not by the same person Wink

That's it then...3 tries each, no consecutive guesses, not more than one guess in a post, etc.

Smile

I appreciate you doing actual research, Jon...

Though you may need to dig a little deeper for your next shot Smile
