The Songs of the King. "Treat Me Nice"


The Songs of the King - "Treat me Nice"


"Treat Me Nice" by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller

This song had already been recorded for the movie "Jailhouse rock", but Elvis was not happy with the result and wanted to include it in these sessions, because he also considered that it was a star song to publish on a single and that he would be successful with it. . For this new session on September 5, 1957, the composers Leiber and Stoller, who were already friends of Elvis and his favorite at that time, collaborated to arrange the score and make it more intense in its accompaniment. They changed the drum accompaniment to make it more suitable, introducing piano and slowing the tempo to give the song a change, ending in fifteen takes. Elvis would interpret it with more desire and with absolute dedication.

A song with a rhythm, catchy and very much in the style of Elvis, the composers knew and already knew the performer, so they knew how to capture his taste.

The song was published on September 23, 1957, as a B-side of the single "Jailhouse Rock", reaching number 1 for the song although it only reached number 27 on the Billboard and number 1 on the R&B charts. This song was included in planned sessions to record a Christmas album that Elvis was not interested in.

After his single, "Treat Me Nice" was included in several albums such as "A Touch of Gold" and LPS Elvis "Golden Records Vol. 1", "Worldwide 50 Gold Award Hits vol.1", "The Great Performances", "Elvis Sings Leiber & Stoller", "The King of Rock And Roll", the 1997 "Jailhouse Rock" CD, including the movie version on it; the record and movie version initially came out together on the 1988 record "Essential Elvis Vol. 1"; the film version on FTD "Flashback", the record version on "Artist Of The Century", "Elvis 2nd to None","Hitstory" ,"Elvis at the Movies", etc, etc.

Alternate versions of the film and these sessions were included in "Elvis: Close Up", "Today Tomorrow & Forever" also features a single outtake.

The Elvis 30 #1 Hits DVD features footage of Elvis performing the song at Jailhouse Rock, etc, etc.

A song that reflects the spirit of Elvis in the first days of splendor, the year 1957 would be for him the confirmation of absolute success, even if it was coupled with criticism from the most conservative.
