Product Description

CD Description

Containing all bar two of the Presley tracks originally released in 1957, this CD continues the series which aims to stay as close as possible the original sound of his studio recordings - i.e. so that the listener experiences the dynamics and excitement that, elsewhere, have been filtered out by contemporary sound processing techniques. The only 1957 releases not included here are 'Oh Little Town of Bethlehem' and the earlier of the two versions of 'Don't Leave Me Now'. For reasons of space, only the version from the Jailhouse Rock Soundtrack appears here. All tracks are mono.

The point of this excellent series of reissues is to get back to the original masters, retaining the actual sound of the period of recording but remastering it for the digital age. Here, we are deep into 1957, merely 3 years after Elvis' seminal first recordings at Sun Records. But he is already all "colonelparkered" and Vegas beckons. The rock tracks are mainly dance-oriented or humourous ('Teddy Bear', 'You're So Square' etc.). You get the mandatory showbiz, not-rock'n'roll-at-all Xmas album songs. You get songs from Hollywood movies (but that includes the like of 'Jailhouse Rock'). The cover of 'Blueberry Hill' is flat and mechanical when compared to Fats Domino's take of the same track. However, as another reviewer rightly points at, it is Elvis. Meaning that the singing is outstanding, the band accompaniment excellent and every song a standard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who Minds the Crackles When It's Elvis? 9 Mar 2010
Verified Purchase
To hear Elvis once again as I did when I first fell for this great singer/artist is just amazing. Oh yes, the cleaned up CDs sound good but the atmosphere is not there. These songs are of their time and that time was not cleaned up tracks with every crackle and scratch removed.

For all Elvis fans, go get. You can relive the early days and remember how it was to be a teen and in love with the good-looking, charismatic rocker who stormed into the music scene and who never really left.
