What an Impact!
25 October 2018 | by westsideschlSee all my reviews

Almost 800 songs, and 30+ movies, and TV shows (hosting & guesting). The number of top ten songs ranks with Carey & Madonna. Number one ranked songs in the same ballpark as Springsteen, Streisand, Stones, Brooks (only Beetles & JAY-Z are higher). Had an enormous historic impact on changing American culture in the fifties & sixties to what we enjoy today. As much as any other individual in any profession. At that time racial separation was as divisive (thank you current president for bringing that term back) as ever in the 20th century. Raised in poverty in a sharecroppers style house in the south he grew up w/the sacrifice of a hard working single mom w/dad sporadically present. His impact: He merged country, bluegrass, and especially blues & gospel w/their black influences into something to be soon called rock 'n' roll and brought it to white America thus bringing two+ races into one. His acceptance of black music, his gyrations & his music faced fierce vocal opposition from the media, from church pulpits, and from politicians (hmmm, I won't comment further on that one). His songs filled all music genres from religious to rock. Not to mention folk & Italian operatic.

The documentary is unique in that all the visuals center about Elvis's life. When we have guest commentary we are only shown in small text who is speaking.
