A new compilation that attempts to prove that Elvis Presley was more than just the King of Rock & Roll. The album If I Can Dream: Elvis Presley With the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, pairs one of the most recognizable voices of the past half-century with classical arrangements that don't so much overtake the original versions that fans hold near and dear, as sweeten them.

The record's first single is "If I Can Dream," the plea for a better world that Presley sang as the closing number of his legendary '68 Comeback Special. In the context of that performance, the song came off as a dramatic showstopper. The updated track, which adds some tasteful strings and a smart horn arrangement that beefs up the one on the original, isn't a different so much as a fuller version of the song.
