Elvis Sings the Great British Songbook


Elvis Aaron Presley is one of the biggest-selling artists of all-time, but mere numbers cannot begin to explain the colossal cultural impact he had in the mid-20th Century. He was a central figure in the transformation of the grey, conservative 50s into the technicolor 60s through the liberalizing effect of rock and pop music. Frank Sinatra had proved extremely popular in the 40s with young ... Read more in Amazon's Elvis Presley Store

Just for the Girl Happy numbers you have to get this cd. I would rank this alongside Viva Las Vegas, Gi Blues and Blue Hawaii as the pick of the crop when it comes to Elvis Soundtracks.Its Vibrant,bouncy and god he looked great in the film.

I have already reviewed Girl happy as a stand alone album but harum holiday only seems available as a double feature, so this review will be for that album only.
As a double package Girl happy spoils it because I think its a bad album see my review for this album.
Harum holiday in its songs and titles is full of eastern flavour which work quite well , even though I dont find most of the songs anything more than average its pleasent enough album to listen to one of Elvis better soundtracks even if your not a big fan of soundtracks.
The highlight is the track 'So close yet so far' this is one of the best tracks Elvis recorded in the 60,s, and is worth buying the album for just for this track. It shows Elvis given the right song (instead of film tie in tracks) can still 'cut it'.
R.C.A never released a single from this album which is one of their biggest mistakes , this track surley would have been a top ten hit , another black mark against R.C.A ( who at the time were releaseing old tracks as singles).
Still you can buy the album and enjoy this track even if you have to buy the terrible Girl happy with it.
Overall Harum holiday is a decent album with no really bad tracks on it a couple of good tracks and the outstanding So close yer so far.

This is a CD that captures the Elvis sound when he was really into doing movies and soundtracks(about 3 a year on average). I bought this CD before the FTD release came out of Girl Happy. This does contain another movie so you get two birds with one stone. The sound quality is fine; you get two movies on one CD; it is rare and I have nothing bad to say about it; but I do, however, prefer the FTD release over this as it does contain all of the Girl Happy content and additonal songs that were unreleased. FTD also has Harum Scarum in better sound and with outtakes...Why not buy other versions? They are still in print, and likely cheaper in additon to having more content and quality!! Good luck.

The coupling of two of the worst Elvis movie soundtracks ever...this is probably the worst 'Double Features' CD release.

If I could choose to give it 0 Stars then I definitely would.

When you compare it to the creative, raw talent of the 50's and the polished Master showman of the 70's then this is scraping the barrel...it can also lead to any unhealthy diet of Elvis movie addictiveness.

Mid-60s Elvis soundtrack two-fer 13 Feb. 2002
By hyperbolium - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Neither "Girl Happy" nor "Harum Scarum" (both released in 1965) represent the nadir of Elvis' film career (there was a nearly bottomless pit of bad films ahead). And though their soundtracks can't compare to Elvis' contemporary non-soundtrack work, they do offer some excellent, albeit lightweight, pop tunes. Both soundtracks charted ("Girl Happy" peaked at #8, "Harum Scarum" at #14), with "Girl Happy" producing two singles: "Do the Clam" (#21) and "Puppet on a String" (#8).
"Girl Happy" fares well with its summer-themed boys-meet-girls songs. The title track is a fine slice of upbeat summer pop written by Doc Pomus and Norman Meade. "Wolf Call" "The Meanest Girl in Town" and "I've Got to Find My Baby" give Elvis a rock 'n' roll beat, with guitars (both fuzz and twang) and saxophone. Sadly, the CD doesn't provide the eye-candy of Shelley Fabares strutting around to these songs."Do Not Disturb" finds Elvis playing the seductive lothario. "Cross My Heart and Hope to Die" takes a late-night turn at the blues, and "Do the Clam," though having failed to ignite a nationwide craze, finds its bongo- and maraca-driven rhythms still able to fill a dance floor. "Puppet on a String," the album's hit single, is a superb country-piano edged ballad.
"Harum Scarum" has a few medium-high points, but its reliance on dramatic, faux Middle Eastern melodies is at odds with Elvis' talent. Tunes like "My Desert Serenade" and "Go East - Young Man" are songs you'd expect to hear from a mid-liner in a 1960s Las Vegas' lounge (most likely at the Sahara Hotel). "Kismet" is a better fit for Presley's balladeering.
The title tune (called "Harum Holiday," after one of the film's original titles) is a typical production number, with Elvis singing his big plans and dancing up a storm. Other production numbers, like "Shake That Tambourine," are too dependent on their dazzling choreography to shine on CD. "Hey Little Girl," while kicking up a bit of rock 'n' roll should not be confused with similarly titled (and more artistically satisfying) songs by Dee Clark, Professor Longhair, Del Shannon or Icehouse. "Animal Instinct," rhymes "instinct" with "wink," "drink," and "brink," all the while providing Elvis a chance to display his feral side.
As a two-fer, this album offers little more value than a straight-up reissue of "Girl Happy." This German issue appears to be the only version still in print. The 1993 U.S. issue (with a different cover) appears to have been deleted from RCA's domestic catalog. Sound quality is superb, having been remastered from original sound sources.
3-1/2 stars for "Girl Happy," 2 stars for "Harum Scarum."

Harum Scarum 25 Sept. 2002
By D. McClure - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I give it five stars simply on the material provided for the Harem Scarem part of the cd. Most of the songs on the Girl Happy section do not interest me in the least. There are some beautiful and haunting songs in the Harum soundtrack, especially "Wisdom Of The Ages" and "So Close Yet So Far" with that far off mystical sound that I wish Elvis would have used more later in his career. Elvis' voice is absolutely supurb, showing his versatility as he always does. I highly suggest this just based on the strength of the Harum Scarum tracks. You just might learn something.

Elvis reaches the height of his creativity 10 Nov. 2003
By Samuel Poe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I know of not one song on the album Harum Scarum that was released as an single. The Music is outstanding on Harum Scarum and the psychedelic era would soon follow. In my opinion the best song on Harum Scarum is "Wisdom of the Ages", and the song "Golden Coins", is almost as creative as was "Wisdom of the Ages". The Beatles song "Norwegian Wood" is much similar to "Wisdom of the Ages", especially the Guitar work. The other songs are also very creative especially "So Close Yet So Far From Paradise", and "Animal Instinct", and "Harum Holiday", both of those songs you will notice Beatle influence. The other songs are also very good songs but not the type of songs that would make it to the top ten. This Elvis album in my opinion is one of the greatest albums ever recorded because it had an impact obviously, and Middle Eastern music afterwards would become a part of rock music. The album "Girl Happy" is another good Elvis album for the most part and is worth buying.
