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

Format:Audio CD
BMG has done a fantastic job of issuing Elvis's back catalogue in enhanced and expanded CDs. Sadly, the exception to the rule concerns the 1968 "Comeback" tv special, which is presently best heard (and seen) in its three DVD incarnation. The soundtrack and outtakes are now spread messily over five over-lapping CD releases (`NBC TV Special', the double set `Memories', `Tiger Man', `Burbank '68' and `Let Yourself Go') comprising six CDs. The CD reviewed here is the first named, it was released around 1990 and was the first of the five. It collects together the original 1968 soundtrack album with the outtakes that emerged in the subsequent two decades or so. Most of the arrangements and performances are terrific but the CD is blighted by technical flaws and lazy planning. Each of the original soundtrack songs, and some of the outtakes, are in disappointing sound quality. The sequencing is questionable, eg, a stripped-down, unplugged version of `Blue Suede Shoes' is crowbarred into the midst of a group of heavily orchestrated songs. And the tunes in that group haven't been indexed, making it impossible to select them individually. Some of these recordings later emerged digitally remastered on `Memories' but others (eg, `Jailhouse Rock', `Love Me Tender') were substituted for outtakes and turned up remastered instead on `Burbank `68'. Others were included in `Tiger Man'. Confused? Me too. There's an obvious case for rationalising the CDs covering the '68 Special sessions, though I suspect BMG has other priorities. The three DVD version is comprehensive, the King's physical performances are a riot, and the sound is wonderful, so think about having a flutter on either that or its terrific one DVD little brother instead.

Well its good but not as great as I had hoped, some tracks rattle on to long and other don't go on long enough, the DVD is far Better then this CD.
