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

EASY COME, EASY GO (an apt title for a bad movie) was filmed and recorded when Elvis' career hit rock bottom. The film's soundtrack was originally released as a six-song EP that failed to chart in North America (but mysteriously, "The Love Machine" and "You Gotta Stop" charted as a double-sided single on the UK charts in 1967). Elvis' voice sounds disinterested, except on the gospel-influenced "Sing You Children." He must've mustered quite a sense of humour in order to get through singing an embarrasing ditty like "Yoga Is as Yoga Does." Yes, it's that bad.
SPEEDWAY, however, hinted at a career upswing, as Elvis was teamed up with Nancy Sinatra. Some of the songs are much better on this soundtrack, but are still short on originality and inspiration. It is also noteworthy in that it is the only Elvis album to include a track he didn't record ("Your Groovy Self," performed solo by Nancy). Originally, SPEEDWAY was the last of Elvis' soundtracks to be released as a full-length album.
This CD would have only received one star if it weren't for some mildly appealing songs from the SPEEDWAY soundtrack (including Elvis & Nancy's duet on "There Ain't Nothing Like a Song"). Buy it at your own risk.

This record compiles the "Easy Come, Easy Go" from September 66 and the "Speedway" from June '67, both later soundtrack efforts. "Easy Come" was recorded at the woefully inadequate Paramount Studio Recording Stage, and Elvis' heart clearly wasn't in it. This is a shame as the material was slightly better than average. The studio in MGM was much better for "Speedway", and the sound and Elvis' vocals were clearly much stronger.
For both sets there is a liberal sprinkling of sheer dross. "Five Sleeping Heads", "Your Time Has Come Yet Baby", "He's Your Uncle" and "Yoga Is As Yoga Does" are unlistenable. So lets not talk of them.
"Easy Come" is often quoted as Elvis' all-time low, but I don't quite get it. "Love Machine" and "Sing You Children" are lightweight, but not poor. The title song and "I'll Take Love" are good songs, while "You Gotta Stop" and "She's A Machine" are good rock'n'roll. Sure it's hardly "Loving You", but if Elvis had put more into it maybe it could have been a good album.
Elvis does put more into "Speedway", which is a shame as the material is weaker. The title song, "Who Are You" and "There ain't Nothing Like a song" are quite poor. The two good songs on offer - "Let Yourself Go" and "Suppose" - are given Elvis full attention. No more of the indifference shown to "I'll Take Love", Elvis gives real passion and power, these are clearly the best songs to be record for an Elvis soundtrack since "Viva Las Vegas" some 4 years earlier.

Easy come easy go is not really a film soundtrack as it only contains 6 songs, originally realeased as a 6 track extended play.Quite honestly its a pile of rubbish , one gets the impression that who ever wrote the song for this film could't care less about the quality . It seems that Elvis was just going through the motions of singing them as if to say lets get these done with and out of the way, he must have been fed up with some of the trashy song he was been given to sing.
SPEEDWAY
If you buy the double feature album then u will have this as well which was Elvis's last full film soundtrack (but with only 8 elvis songs its not even that)There were other Elvis films but this was the last film soundtrack and it was one of the worst.

It is so bad even thoese fans that bought it were't enough to put it into the album charts first Elvis album not to make the charts.
At least after this the films got better and Elvis was't far away from doing the N.B.C t.v SPEICAL, and the superb 'From Elvis in Memphis.
This album has only 10 tracks on it. 1 is by Nancy Sinatra which is rubbish (I like a lot of stuff Nancy has done but not this)but when I buy an Elvis album thats who I want to hear, one track is reapeated (suppose) which is proberly the best track on the album the rest are absoulte rubbish.
So only buy this in order to compleat your collection dont expect to enjoy it, its garabge and I bet Elvis said' Thank god theres no more of these godam soundtracks lets now get on to making some proper music.

Probably Elvis' weakest CD 18 Jun. 2007
By A Fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This CD includes songs from two of Elvis' movies, 1967's Easy Come, Easy go and 1968's Speedway. A soundtrack album was released for Speedway but it was a commercial flop, peaking at 82 on the US album chart. An EP was released with songs from Easy Come, Easy Go, it was a hit in the UK, but failed to make a splash in the US. Only one song on this set made the US singles chart, Your Time Hasn't Come Yet Baby which only peaked at 72 on the chart. While Elvis' performances are good and there are a few ok songs on here, in general the material is so weak that there is not much he can do to salvage it. Elvis' management should have been fired for giving him material like this to record; what a waste of his talent. This may be the weakest Elvis CD currently available. Only recommended for avid Elvis fans who have to own everything he released.

Elvis survives lame lyrics and poor mixing. 19 Aug. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
By 1966 even his most serious fans were not excited by the prospect of another" Elvis Movie" and soundtrack. Sure there were always good scenes and good songs, but the *music* was still the most important element and EASY COME, EASY GO and SPEEDWAY were disappointments in that area, EASY COME moreso. Both releases (EASY on Extended Play only) sold poorly. But by 2001 many published critical commentaries on the Presley sessions cause one to reconsider the tunes and the performances: in several cases, Elvis makes *something* out of nothing. For example, the title tune to EC-EG is a fun uptempo opener; "You Gotta Stop" also has a beat; the prev. unrel. take of "The Love Machine" should have been released earlier, despite the discordant background. SPEEDWAY was the last (and ironically one of the better) "formula" films and surprisingly features Presley's most spirited vocals in years - every single track from the latter movie has a bright and energetic vocal, esp. the title tune, with its Jerry Lee Lewis feel and powerful drumming; "Your Time Hasn't Come Yet, Baby", a nice country-pop medium tempo; "There Ain't Nothing Like A Song" is a definite toe-tapper. Nancy Sinatra's contribution is notable, especially in light of the fact that her career was soaring at the time. Talent elevates material - here is a prime example.

Don't be afraid, just relax and take it real slow. 6 Nov. 2005
By Johnny Heering - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This CD features two Elvis soundtracks from 1966-67.

Easy Come, Easy Go is a contender for "Worst Elvis Soundtrack". None of the songs are good. I mean, really, "Yoga Is As Yoga Does"? The soundtrack was released as an EP that was probably the worst selling record of Elvis' career, with approximately 30,000 copies sold. Some of these dopey songs are good for a laugh, though. The CD adds three alternate takes of these dumb songs.

Speedway isn't a very good soundtrack either, but at least it has a few good songs. "Let Yourself Go" is a great song that was the single from the album (it flopped). Elvis later used the song in his "Comeback Special", in a version that's even better than the one from Speedway. "Suppose" is another great song. Elvis recorded a three minute version and a two minute version, neither of which ended up in the movie (both versions are on the CD). The third best song from the soundtrack is actually "Your Groovy Self", by Nancy Sinatra. None of the other songs are very good. Seriously, "He's Your Uncle Not Your Dad"?

This CD will only be of interest to serious Elvis fans.

A Good year. 19 Oct. 2003
By L_A_FunK - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
By '68, Elvis had grown estranged to his music, going from session to session and set to set. Since G.I. Blues (1960), he was making between two and four films a year which were generally shot in two weeks time. The King was becoming frustrated when comparing his career (to let's say oh... the Beatles, perhaps) to new emerging successful ones on top of the charts. Why couldn't he, the man who'd seen every peek position in a four year period with a handful of grooves, get a piece of it now? Secondly, why couldn't he feel passionate about his music, wings of his soul? Truth is, Elvis wasn't Presley, he was MGM, Paramount and UA. Disowned and discouraged from the claws of pop, that of Good Luck Charm or Have a Happy, '68 came and gave a breath of fresh air with the Speedway ST.
I'm not sure if the Colonel had to with it, But the connection to the sexy, tongue dropping Ms Sinatra seemed to've brought chemistry to the music. Listen to "Speedway" or "Let yourself go" (check out the Comeback version - HOT!). These are, yes indeed, pop dipped tracks but all-groove. There's a feeling in that music which is indescribably fly. La crème de la crème is no other than "There Ain't nothing like a song", where Elvis' voice sounds like it had been sleeping in a Memphis studio for a few years and pulled out of a drawer for the recording. It's fresh, hip and the way E.P. likes it most: Rock'N' Roll, baby.
However, nobody paid much mind to the product, Elvis having been a franchise performer for too long. It was just another Elvis movie with a soundtrack.
"Hey Joe, You wanna like go see that Elvis flick?
- Forget that, man, like I got tickets to see the Byrds.
- Whoa, man, I'm like there too."
Thank goodness, Elvis' prayers from How Great Art Thou (his '66 Grammy award-winning gospel album) had been answered because '68 was a good one. After marrying Pricilla on May 1st, the Comeback Special was filmed two months later and redeemed the man's soul until his death and that, despite those last intolerable films he had to make after the Comeback.
So buy the double album (because ECEG is kinda worth it - Nonetheless, it's better than the two films that part ECEG to Speedway) and pay attention to the Speedway soundtrack. Invite your friends over and have a bikini party with the music. If your friends don't dance, then change your friends!!! The girls should consider taking their tops off by the time Let Yourself Go plays...
