Opinions are what helps make the world go around, particularly so with music.

So for every person who thinks that Elvis Presley was the bee’s knees, there’s another who thinks he was a charlatan who wasn’t in the same league as black performers of the time.

The case for ‘Elvis Is God’ is put under scrutiny in the latest ‘Classic Albums’ programme about his 1956 self-titled debut.

As with all the series, it’s full of great archive and insights from those who worked on the record as well as contemporary commentators to put it all in context.

Whatever your Elvis ‘take,’ you’ll come out the other end with more insight and, unless you’re stone-hearted, with your toes tapping.
