Elvis Presley Blues

Annita Ray was born in Hudson Falls, New York.

In 1956, she performed "On A Saturday Night" in the movie SHAKE, RATTLE, AND ROCK.

Annita Ray had at least three record releases from 1957 thru 1959 prior to joining Ray Anthony's Bookends Revue in 1960. Following her departure from the Bookends, Annita once again went solo, recording for the Choreo and AVA labels, both owned by Fred Astaire. On the AVA label, she also released one album, SLOW GLOW. In 1964, she re-teamed with Diane Hall as Diane & Annita for two releases.

"Elvis Presley Blues" was written by Eden Ahbez, the man who wrote the song "Nature Boy" and lived under the first "L" of the HOLLYWOOD sign. More about Eden Ahbez : A VERY STRANGE ENCHANTED BOY by Brian Chidester
