After months trying to get Elvis into a studio to lay down some desperately needed tracks for a desperately needed studio album, RCA in 1976 eventually resorted to sending a mobile recording unit to Elvis Presley Boulevard Memphis Tennessee. The fully equipped huge red vehicle parked at the back of Graceland mansion, and engineers passed cables and other equipment through the windows of the perfectly accousted 'Jungle Room'. It is here in his own mansion, and on two separate occasions, that The King recorded his final studio tracks.

Though the cover of the aptly named album features a flashy and smiling superstar on stage, the entire set is made up of sad, melancholic, and heartbreak songs. Little did anyone know at the time that Elvis would die the following year - but the tell-tale signs that something was wrong were embedded in the grooves of this collection.

Just look at some of the song titles: HURT, NEVER AGAIN, BLUE EYES CRYING IN THE RAIN, THE LAST FAREWELL, FOR THE HEART, BITTER THEY ARE HARDER THEY FALL, SOLITAIRE, LOVE COMING DOWN, I'LL NEVER FALL IN LOVE AGAIN. IF these titles were not strong enough clues to Elvis' state of mind, then listening to the songs would seal it for you.

Though the performances made you pay attention to his voice, still amazingly rich and magnetic, Elvis sounded down. Really down. And I believe he was finally opening up to us through this album - to take us into his world, to share with us his feelings of heartache and loneliness. Strangely, as if he knew the end was near.

Listening to these recordings, you can hear Elvis almost wailing in many of these tracks but especially when he sings HURT, NEVER AGAIN, DANNY BOY, and I'LL NEVER FALL IN LOVE AGAIN. SOLITAIRE is simply an epic.

This most excellent album is a fusion of songs that are of regreat and despair. It's hardly original, but could not be bettered in any way, shape or form.
The opening song "Hurt" is towering, a massive vocal effort by Elvis....this is a standout on the album and a huge favourite.
"Never Again" is the weakest song here, it fails to grip like the others, even though Elvis sings it so damn good.
"Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain" is a honkytonk version of a country blues song....it is infectiously good.
"Danny Boy" is a career highlight and without exception, nobody has sung this classic song as good.
"The Last Farewell" has the most dramatic opening I have ever heard....it's like a high seas epic movie soundtrack. It calms, and Elvis delivers another fine performance.
The only up-tempo song on the CD, "For the Heart" is sensational; from the slippery bass and funky beats, this again is a song that should have been a single. It would have been big, and would have turned more people onto this album.
"Bitter They Are, Harder They Fall" brings us back to the sad songs. I love this track, the lyrics are excellent, "She caught me lying, and she caught a train; and I caught a fever standing here in the rain."
Again, "Solitaire", Neil Sedaka's masterpiece is gripping stuff, the sorrowfull lyrics almost become depressing.....anyone who knows this classic song will agree....both Sedaka's and Elvis are great, so is Andy William's superb version. The best of the three, Neil's original or Elvis'.
"Love Coming Down" is a lesson to those who put career before the love of a good woman.....listen carefully.
"I'll Never Fall In Love Again" ends this excellent album.

From Elvis Presley Boulevard, Memphis, Tennessee
My husband love's all Elvis but this particular CD was stolen from our car
and he could not find another anywhere.
I decided to try Amazon, never thinking that I could get one. And posted to me in Spain. So I bought 2 (one for his good buddy,another Elvis fan).
I put the order in on the 14th June 2009 and both were delivered in 4 working day's. Wow! Amazing Amazon. Thank's a mil.Very quick and efficient. Caro.

I love this CD. Love Coming Down is, perhaps, the best ballad Elvis has ever recorded. This CD is a must-have for everyone who likes Elvis' vocal strenght. Elvis forever!

ELVIS SECOND LAST ALBUM, FROM ELVIS PRESLEY BLVD WAS AND STILL IS A WONDERFUL AND DEEP COLLECTION OF SONGS.
ELVIS AT THIS TIME (76) HAD NOT MADE A HUGE SELLING ALBUM SINCE 73, AND HAD RARELY BEEN IN THE PUBLIC EYE; ALTHOUGH HIS TOURS WERE MASSIVE EVENTS.
THIS ALBUM DID NOT BRING ANYTHING CONTEMPORARY THAT HIS FANS MAY HAVE WANTED AT THE TIME; BUT IT WAS GOOD, VERY GOOD.
THIS IS POWERFUL MUSIC, FROM THE OPENING POWER OF HURT TO THE BEST VERSION OF DANNY BOY EVER MADE, THIS IS AN ALBUM THAT IS SINCERE AND HEARTFELT.
FOR THE HEART IS THE ONLY UP=TEMPO SONG, IT IS SUPERB, AS IS A UNIQUE VERSION OF BLUE EYES CRYING IN THE RAIN; WHICH IS UNLIKE WILLIE NELSON'S VERSION.
NEIL SEDAKA'S SOLITAIRE IS TREATED WITH CARE, AS IS ILL NEVER FALL IN LOVE AGAIN, MADE FAMOUS BY TOM JONES, BUT BETTERED HERE BY THE KING.
I LOVE THIS CD, IT IS GREAT LISTENING ESPECIALLY IF YOU LIKE GOOD LYRICS AND EXCELLENT SINGING.
