  • Michael Hall Almost everyone I meet has purchased an Elvis record or CD sometime in their life, however, very few people have a Garth Brooks Cd in their collection.
  • Nina K Tryggvason this is a market ploy for his current album.

    Pirate CoveThe Hound Dog Album

    When I read that Elvis did 23 takes of Hound Dog before picking which would be the release version, I used to imagine what it would be like to have a whole LP of that.

    Listening to him work through the song -and then have the special tv performances of it as well.

    Funny, when I think of Garth Brooks, I think of a country boy who’s fans were there to see his lesbian sister playing guitar and who almost sank his career by switching to rock as Chris Gains.
    Something about authenticity and transcending genre is what Elvis was about.

    John Perovich Hey folks we’re not comparing voices, talent, etc. Garth Brooks would be humbled by that comparison as he is a humble person. We’re comparing record sales. Stop hating and give the man his due!!! He is a ground breaking artist who is responsible for bringing millions of people around the world to country music. He has reached iconic status and that’s an indisputable fact. If you don’t like the guy then just say nothing!

    Linda Schoener Gettle Really people, it’s a different time, if the King of Rock and Roll were still alive he would be congratulating Garth and Garth would be in awe of the King. They are both great entertainers in there field!!!!! An Elvis and Garth Fan I am!!!!!!!
