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

Product Description

Product Description

Not long after his discharge from the US Army, RCA executives and manager Colonel Tom Parker booked recording sessions for Elvis at RCA's studios in Nashville. All present were eager to see if Elvis could still produce the magic after two years in uniform, but thanks to a solid backing group and songs drafted in from his favourite writers, they needn't have worried. Whilst Elvis Is Back! peaked at #2 on the US charts, it returned him to the summit of the UK charts for the first time since King Creole some two years previously. Elvis was back, and how!

By Mark Barry HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
*** THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE 2011 'LEGACY' REISSUE ***

Conscripted into the American Army in March 1958 and discharged two years later, Sergeant Presley was a mere 18 days back in the USA when RCA practically frogmarched him into their Nashville Studios to cut some new material for a highly-expectant public. So it's perhaps strange now in hindsight to think that 1960's "Elvis Is Back!" - his most beloved of studio albums - only went to Number 2 on release. But I can assure you that there is nothing second-place about this 50th Anniversary reissue. It's a gem. Here are the details...

Released 8 March 2011 in the USA (28 February in the UK) - RCA/Legacy 88697 85300 2 contains 2 whole albums and 12 x 7" single-sides (5 of which reached Number 1). Its 36 STEREO tracks break down as follows:

Disc 1 (50:43 minutes):
Tracks 1 to 12 are the US LP "Elvis Is Back!" - released 8 April 1960 on RCA Victor LPM-2231 [Mono] and LPS-2231 [Stereo]
Tracks 13 and 14 are "Stuck On You" and "Fame And Fortune" - the A&B-sides of RCA Victor 47-7740 - released 23 March 1960
Tracks 15 and 16 are "It's Now Or Never" and "A Mess Of Blues" - the A&B sides of RCA Victor 47-7777 - released 5 July 1960
Tracks 17 and 18 are "Are You Lonesome Tonight?

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
To follow the recent Legacy Editions of FROM ELVIS IN MEMPHIS and ON STAGE comes this fulfilling coupling of the triumphant ELVIS IS BACK! from 1960 partnered with 1961's less well-acclaimed SOMETHING FOR EVERYBODY, both albums being fleshed out with related singles, including 'It's Now Or Never' and that stonking double-sided hit 'His Latest Flame'/'Little Sister'.

Admittedly, if you've already bought the single CDs of these two albums, you may not really want to invest in this, as apart from a brand new booklet, there is nothing in the way of session outtakes or unreleased masters included. However, what this set does deliver is a compact snapshot of Elvis Presley at the top of his game, which might also encourage you to take a closer appreciation of the SOMETHING FOR EVERYBODY album, which I personally have overlooked in the past.

ELVIS IS BACK!, Presley's first album released after his army discharge, is a recognised classic, within which he tackled a bewildering array of material with disarming ease. From the upbeat 'Make Me Know It'; through to the slinky, sultry 'Fever'; and on to the suggestive 'Such A Night'; before closing out with the bluesy 'Reconsider Baby', Presley covered all the bases. Even the single B-sides 'Fame And Fortune', 'A Mess Of Blues' and the jaunty 'I Gotta Know' were far from throwaways, providing beautifully contrasting accompaniments to 'Stuck On You', 'It's Now Or Never' and 'Are You Lonesome Tonight?' respectively. Arguably, perhaps not until the Memphis sessions in early 1969, would Presley ever have quite such a productive and thoroughly rewarding time in the studio.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Elvis re-release for years. 10 Mar 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
'Elvis is Back' along with 'Elvis in Memphis' is the holy grail of the Elvis catalogue the two CD special edition on the FTD collectors label is on the stunning 7" sleeve format with all the original artwork from 1960, Elvis never sounded better than on this album which was his first post army recording session and he had a lot to prove after being away from the public for two years this really was a make and break situation and he really came up with the results listen to 'Reconsider Baby' 'Like a Baby' and 'Dirty Dirty Feeling' to understand how determined he was, also included on this wonderful package are the singles recorded at these sessions like 'It's Now or Never' 'Are You Lonesome Tonight' and 'The Girl Of My Best Friend' also included are outakes false starts and breakdowns as well as alternate takes, never before have we had the complete 'Elvis is Back' sessions Fans have been waiting for this for years, go out and support this release so FTD can release the other early sixties albums like 'Something For Everybody' 'His Hand in Mine' and 'Pot Luck' The 'Elvis is Back' sessions returned Elvis to the top of his game and came back greater than ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars But had he changed? 1 Jan 2012
By Dangerous Dave TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
There are many who'd say that this is Presley's best album. If not that it must at least be amongst his best though it could be said that albums weren't really the man's forte - he's more remembered for his singles. It was the first album to emerge after his stint in the US Army - hence the title - and, alongside a whole host of other tracks many of which were to be released as singles plus the tracks that went to form the follow up album "Something for Everybody", it was the result of just a few days recording with the Nashville session team including Scotty Moore and drummer DJ Fontana.

What it isn't is a rock'n'roll album. The most out and out rocker on it, "Dirty, Dirty Feeling" is good but lightweight. The track that actually rocks the most in the set is "Such a Night" originally recorded by the Clyde McPhatter version of the Drifters. Elvis takes this song and pretty well wrings its neck with a scorching latin version that doesn't take prisoners. Elsewhere we have the opener, "Make me Know It", which is reminiscent of some of the Sun Carl Mann tracks - pop more than rock but oodles of charm - plus "The Girl Next Door Went A'Walking" which is also poppy with a hint of rock.

No, it's abundantly clear that the powers that be, and whether that was Colonel Parker or the RCA bigwigs we may never know, had decided that the route forward was via mainstream pop. That said there were some delightful exceptions to this approach in the shape of two slow and very deliberate blues, Jesse Stone's "Like a Baby" and Lowell Fulson's classic, "Reconsider Baby" plus a third track, "It Feels So Right" which was also imbued with a hefty blues feel slightly softened by the presence of the Jordanaires.
