Twenty years ago, this would have been an impressive add to any fan collection :: the master versions in beautiful remastered sound plus a few interesting extracts from the sessions...however, knowing the unreleased bits are in average mono sound(taken from what we can suspect as being a "cheap source"), and that over the years we have received very good official releases of these sessions, this product can only please amateurs discovering Elvis and wanting just a little more than merely the studio album(this would be a nice introduction to Elvis' work in the studio). Of course, fans will be glad to add this item to their collection for the beautiful presentation, but that's about the visual aspect.

The label that have released this, Memphis Recording Service have announced on their website that they do not have any connection to Sony/BMG, the label that own all the masters of Elvis' commercial recordings which indicates that they only have official access to his non-label live recordings and demos and must have obtained these tracks from an unofficial source, as far too many of these tracks appear unnecessarily in mono. They are alternate takes of the tracks from the original album, many of which are unavailable elsewhere, not even on the expanded double CD version on the Follow That Dream label which is Sony's Elvis subsidiary label. Musically, the songs here were far from great, but okay. But his worst was yet to come when he got pushed into his rapid succession of movies and soundtrack albums which were issued one on top of another, all of which were very quick slap-up efforts, and this lasted for the bulk of the remaining 1960's. We had to wait for the end of the decade for Elvis to make an upturn in his career and create a more acceptable sound again.

This accompanying book has never before released photos from the film Blue Hawaii - a must for any Elvis fan. The cd not only has all the great music from the movie but many takes and retakes - you really get a flavor for working with and being right there in Hawaii with Elvis! Mahalo nui/thanks alot - Dahmia

Bit of a bluff actually,all the songs 1-14 are the masters as you would find them on the original album,but what they have cleverly done,is add false starts etc and if you listen carefully you can tell these false starts were added on before the original track to appear that you are infact listening to elvis try once or twice before you get what you hear on the standard Blue hawaii album,however,they are the most clear and crystal versions ive heard,as for the added retakes dont be fooled,you dont even get all the song in most cases.The booklet saves the day tho,beautifully presented.

The audio restoration merits 5 on 5. Pure delight ! I have not yet the similar set, which appears on FTD, and unfortunately, cannot compare our new release on this issue. Bit I will soon. However, the famous Lp bootleg BEHIND CLOSED DOORS on the label Audifon were not inferior in quality, in including several tracks of this movie. This new CD edition of Blue Hawaï - expanded/2012 - brings alternate takes on the regular market that many of us wait since a long time.
And this fabulous booklet ? Unthinkable in the sixties with so many rare photos.
If you have no CD from this legendary performer and love this repertoire. do not hésitate.It promises the heaven where Elvis is waiting you !
