4.0 out of 5 stars A strange one 7 Sep 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A strange one this. It largely duplicates "the best" of what is already out on the Cafe Europa Box set but adds an extra 7 tracks which are the "movie" versions of Frankfurt Special, Pocketfull of Rainbows etc. In fact these 7 tracks are really rather nice and I would have to concede that they are worth forking out 7 for them even if you have the Europa Box. It's stange though that the Memphis Recording Service boys have also included 5 "masters" on an album that is sold as "alternate". Finally there is a rather cute picture of Juliette Prowse bending over on the cover and I do take back what I said about her in my Cafe Europa review. Nice pic of Elvis too on the cover but no sleeve notes to speak of.

Yes it's nice to have a collectible item in the vintage style with a pretty packaging, but the sound source could be better

5.0 out of 5 stars Just for true Elvis fans.. 29 Sep 2011
By Soulman
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you are a fan of Elvis or a fan of the movie, this is the CD for you. It has some very good alternative versions that are better than the movie release versions, which are found on the original GI blues albums. I really prefer the outtake versions especially when you can here Elvis making comments on the takes, you feel so connected and part of the take ... one of the Elvis's best Movie CD's in my opinion.

3.0 out of 5 stars More G.I. Blues 20 Mar 2013
By WarrenS - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The Memphis Recording Service out of Europe (not Memphis, Tennessee) has issued this album of alternate takes and film-version recordings of the songs from G.I. Blues. Billed as "The Alternate Album Version" this CD oddly includes six "master" takes which have been available since 1960. "Wooden Heart" is listed as take 4, but that is the master. While a few of the alternate takes are new to this release, others have been available from BMG/Sony. I find the audio quality of these tracks not up to the standard of the American releases. On this CD the sound is not warm and natural, but rather bright and cold. The seven monaural movie songs come right off the film soundtrack and you must live with fade ins and fade outs. While there is really nothing wrong with the concept behind this release, it would have been more interesting as all alternate takes, arranged in the original running order of the 1960 album. You get no background information on the recordings other than the take number for each song. If you can't get enough of the alternate takes from G.I. Blues, then you may enjoy this offering and wish to consider the Memphis Recording Service 4-CD set titled "Cafe Europa".
