Biography

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

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy come, easily forgotten about gem! 19 Nov 2007
Format:Audio CD
Follow that dream records, the collectors division of RCA have done it again with another superb re-packaging in their latest series of original EP re-issues. Turning their attention to the often overlooked 1966 "Easy come Easy go" movies soundtrack EP. This EP comprised of recordings Elvis made for the movie in 1966.

Not a classic film by any accounts, it came from a very low period in Elvis's movie career. Not the worst film by any means but not one that many fans would watch over and over. However the soundtrack for this movie was surprisingly above par.

This CD set gives you the original 6 track EP, then a batch of first takes and alternate takes. Beautiful packaging and detailed booklet help show the production process and how the songs came to be.

Remarkably many of the songs recorded here took less that 10 takes to complete and some of the 1st takes sound almost like the final masters. Elvis must have had a clear idea of how he wanted the music here to sound from the outset.

The songs are strong mid sixties tracks a definate cut above the other mid sixties movie soundtracks, "The love machine" and "You gotta stop" are brilliant Elvis songs, ok there is "Yoga is as Yoga does" but I have always had a soft spot for that song as it was on my first ever Elvis LP when I was a small child and I used to pretend I was doing the Yoga moves while I was listening to it. I later sought help and I am now fully mentally recovered!

So all in all buy this CD, its a good soundtrack, the only downside is, as with all the Follow That Dream Extended Play releases, you only get a handful of songs (6 to be precise) so it can get repetative.

1.0 out of 5 stars For collectors only 22 Aug 2007
By A Fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a re-release of Elvis' 1967 soundtrack EP for his movie Easy Come, Easy Go. The EP went to number 1 on the EP charts in the UK, but failed to make a splash in the US. Neither the movie or the soundtrack were very good. While Elvis' performances are good, the material is so weak that their is not much he can do to salvage it. His management should have been fired for giving him weak material like this to record. For avid Elvis fans only.

2.0 out of 5 stars "Justa buncha salty sailors": for completists & historians only 21 Dec 2007
By Phil S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Elvis always made interesting soundtrack albums, or at least 2-3 enjoyable cuts even for some real [do the] clams of '65 to '69, but here we have....nothing. Even George Costanza would agree.
The title song is an energetic workout, musically Gospel/uptempo Blues, and Elvis Presley is on top of it throughout. In addition, the timely guitars and well placed trumpets, make it something worthwhile. So the opener is *something*, okay.
"You Gotta Stop" has more of that '50s feel, not bad at all, with more contemporary pickin', a solid 2/4, and involved Elvis.
Well, that's about it, although outtakes of "I'll Take Love", Latinized R & R, and "The Love Machine", are definitely agreeable. Again, those trumpets fit!
Guess they couldn't use two songs with the word "machine" in the title, so "She's A Machine" got sent a-packin'...found a home on the Singer budget album. Elvis jumps all over one of the strangest tunes he probably ever encountered, and there are some genuinely exciting parts; another positive is in the horn arrangement, a rat-tat-tat riff that really works. Ultimately, though, the awkward, unnerving offer is still the stuff of "budget" collections.
On that subject, and it's unavoidable, we have one of those movie songs which make even the most ardent afficionado nervous: "Yoga Is As Yoga Does", another inscrutable song for an out-of-touch, really poor production number. Unusual to say the least, the song sounds like an amalgam of the "Bonanza" theme and Elvis' "A Cane and a High-Stached Collar", but *as* usual, he rises to the occasion and displays his amazing vocal and physical elasticity - he certainly was an under-appreciated "mime" - but over time, fans have learned that Presley took Eastern-based meditation, exercise, and martial arts very seriously, so the song can conjure up visuals of an actor trying not to look embarrassed, and provoke one to jump up from his/her easy chair to lower the volume while this ditty wafts through the air and footsteps are heard out in the apartment hallway.
(The next day, in the elevator, your neighbors' quizzical looks regarding said silly soundtrack song, can be dispelled with "I'm researching the technique of elevating mediocre material through modulation". Then she says, "You mean Elvis could really make lemonade out of lemons").
* * * * * * *
CD highlights? Non-singing stuff!! Yes, the music beds for "You Gotta Stop" and the Everlys' "Leave My Woman Alone", which historians know was never addressed by the great voice box, are excellent. In fact, the later recording could have been a Country hit - a really engaging arrangement. [I'm a bit disturbed that they have been titled "Instrumentals" here]. Those listeners very attuned to instrument presence and balance will love hearing good musicians work out. As we all know, alot of Presley's movie songs were done on a soundstage, yielding flat, tinny aurals, basically compressing alot of notable playing.
The packaging is nice, notes well presented and interesting.
Now it has to be said: if you have the EC/EG two-fer, with its' own good share of alt's and out's (are they really *all* outtakes?), is more than enough. Otherwise, this keeper (?) should be kept comfortably on a relatively high (or low) shelf, or at least at a reasonable distance from the "Jailhouse Rock" (or even "Viva Las Vegas") CDs.
2.0 out of 5 stars You might get ducky. 23 Oct 2013
By Johnny Heering - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
On September 28 & 29 of 1966, Elvis Presley recorded the soundtrack for his movie Easy Come, Easy Go. The movie was to feature just six songs. The songs weren't very good, even by Elvis movie standards. Elvis himself particularly disliked "She's a Machine", so the producer had the idea of having the band record backing tracks for two other songs which Elvis might like better, which could then be used in the movie instead of "She's a Machine". Elvis did like "You Gotta Stop" better than "She's a Machine", so he recorded a vocal for it and it ended up in the movie. The other backing track, the Ray Charles song "Leave My Woman Alone", appears here as a bonus track. The six songs from the movie were released as a 7 inch EP, which was the worst selling record of Elvis' lifetime, selling a meager 30,000 copies. That failure can be attributed to lack of interest in the movie, which was a box office bomb, and the fact that the 7 inch EP was a dead format. This deluxe edition CD includes many alternate takes of the songs from the recording session. This lousy soundtrack will only be of interest to Elvis completists.
