LESSON 13

 

Hi, my name is Carlos Ares. I was born in 1949 in Argentina. I developed an interest in Elvis when I was only seven years old and since then I have bought thousands and thousand of records.

I saw Elvis in 1972 - four times - and with the years I developed the Elvis shop in Argentina and written three books on his life and his discography. Even my wife is an Elvis fan.

It blew my mind. Well, I was only seven years old. I was listening to the radio and this record came and I heard a voice I never dreamed of hearing, never, I mean, it was so different from everything I had listened to before.

"Crying in the Chapel" was the first and only gospel song ever released in Argentina. I don't know why, but all over South America his previous works were not issued in Argentina. It's incredible because this song, which was originally recorded in 1960, was issued all over the world, including Argentina in 1965, and it became a tremendous hit not only in the US but, I guess, all over the world.


EXPLANATIONS
