Fellow Elvis weirdos know that sometimes you just have to track down every conceivable version of the man’s hits. So it was with Jackie DeShannon’s cover of the Leiber/Stoller penned “Trouble” made famous by the king in his film King Creole, and seriously revamped in the ’68 Comeback Special. A very early entry in DeShannon’s career, the track was efficiently used this past week during the credits of True Blood. Nice touch.
