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

4.0 out of 5 stars Coming in loaded full of extras 20 Nov 2007
Format:Audio CD
Follow that dream records, the collectors division of RCA have done it yet again with another superb re-packaging in their ongoing series of original LP re-issues. Turning their attention to the 1962 "Girls Girls Girls" movie soundtrack. Maybe the first film to notably show a formula and slight downturn in quality that was to become a familiar and unfortunate pattern. Having said that it's not a bad film by any accounts, and it did contain some very strong songs indeed, most notably "Return to Sender" and the UK Billy Fury hit song "Because of love". On its original release in 1962 it fared badly when compared to the highly successful "Blue Hawaii", indeed this film was also filmed in Hawaii, one of only three elvis films that were, the other being "Paradise Hawaiian Style" three years later.

This CD set gives you the original LP, some bonus songs, then a batch of first takes and alternate takes. Beautiful packaging and detailed booklet help show the production process and how the songs came to be, unfortunately the afforementioned highlights from the soundtrack are not on the alternate takes list, but we do get most other tracks in their infancy and going through various stages of development.

Listening to take after take of "Mama" can get a bit monotonous especially as you feel as though your watching a DOLMIO advert, but its nice to have the inclusion of the rare version only previously available on the "Lets be friends" Camden LP.

Its only a single CD release but it is well worth the money. Overall another one for the collection, I do like these gatefold re-issues they are great to own.

Please FTD keep up the Re-issues and the great packaging

Cheers
Paul

3.0 out of 5 stars Too much talk of mother 7 Dec 2007
Format:Audio CD
Girls! Girls! Girls! came at the end of Elvis' golden period, and contains only one gem, "Return To Sender". It's worth saying though that is one of Elvis' strongest early 60s hits, powerful, smooth and witty it's a true classic.
So that aside we have 12 more originals which vary in quality from the pretty "Because Of Love" and fun title track, the bizarre "Earth Boy" to dull stuff such as "I Don't Want To".
Of this enhanced collection, you have the usual wonderful FTD packaging (nice pictures, background etc) and some difficult to get hold of tracks, like the pleasant little dance track "Plantation Rock" and a revision of "Girls Girls Girls" (which is real fun).
The outtakes are not as varied as we'd come to expect. Dominated by tired versions of the very dull "Mama" (do they never stop!) it is clear there was a distinct lack of bonus material available, and with the exception of the version 're-mixed' for 70s consumption one is much the same as another.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cover 20 Jun 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The cover is the same as the LP which I am glad about + good info ref musicians which you didn't get with the LP.
The only down side is the pictures used, same pic used where the CD sits is on the back of the CD, a different pic ( possibly one where Elvis sing's on stage in the black suit ) would have been better.
Overall the sound is excellent.

2.0 out of 5 stars +1/2 -- One hit, some passable tunes and several clunkers 27 Jan 2010
By hyperbolium - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
There are a number of commonly held misconceptions about Elvis Presley's film career: Elvis couldn't act, his movies were all throwaways, and the soundtracks were populated entirely with substandard material. But key films in the King's catalog show that he could indeed act, if called upon, there are several high-quality dramatic and musical films in Elvis' oeuvre, alongside many good lightweight romantic musical comedies, and his soundtracks are laced with hits and terrific albums sides. To measure the highpoints of Elvis' soundtrack catalog by virtue of the low points (of which there are admittedly many) is to miss out on a valuable dimension of Presley's musical career.

1962's Girls! Girls! Girls! was Elvis' eleventh film, the first of three with "Girls" in the title, and the only in his filmography to be nominated for an award (a Golden Globe for Best Musical, losing to The Music Man). Like most of Elvis' soundtracks, this one was recorded in Hollywood with a mix of West Coast studio players (including legendary Wrecking Crew drummer Hal Blaine) and Elvis regulars (including Scotty Moore, D.J. Fontana, and the Jordanaires). The catchy title track was written by Leiber and Stoller and was previously a hit for the Coasters. Sped up and rearranged into smoother pop, it still has the Coasters' characteristic bounce and a fine sax solo from Bobby Keys. The album's standout is Otis Blackwell's "Return to Sender," which was also the soundtrack's only hit, peaking at #2 on the Billboard chart and hitting #1 on Cashbox.

The bulk of the album features good-if-not-great rock `n' roll numbers and several forgettable ballads. The band cooks and The Jordanaires add zing to "I Don't Wanna Be Tied," and "Thanks to the Rolling Sea" makes up for mediocre lyrics with the energy of seafaring folk music. The otherwise bland "We'll Be Together" is spiced with Spanish-style guitar and backing vocals from the Amigos, but the faux-Japanese "Earth Boy" can't be saved. Others, like "Because of Love" sound as if they were hurriedly written on the back of an envelope with a rhyming dictionary close at hand. The album closes with an Otis Blackwell tune, "We're Coming in Loaded," that's more atmosphere than substance, but at least it rocks.

By 1962 Elvis movies were quickly becoming an assembly line of uninventive plots and forgettable music. The dispensability of Elvis' movie music is highlighted by the parallel quality of his regular material, which in 1962 included "Good Luck Charm" and "She's Not You." Elvis rose to the occasion when given quality material, and could make magic happen with mediocre songs, but even the King couldn't turn lead into gold. Sony's reissue features a four-panel booklet, no bonus tracks, and no liner notes discussing the music or its making. The 29-minute running time suggests the earlier import two-fer or Follow That Dream's collector's edition might be more compelling to Elvis diehards. Still, the budget price and remastered sound make this reissue quite attractive. 2-1/2 stars, if allowed fractional ratings. [2010 hyperbolium dot com]

5.0 out of 5 stars Upgraded sound from Double Features release 11 Mar 2010
By John Hermes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This newly remastered soundtrack has a much more dynamic sound, and directional stereo, than the Double Features release (with Kid Galahad) from the 1990s. This new CD sounds much more like the old vinyl LP but with the advantages of CD - no ticks, pops, inner groove distortion, etc. Listen to "Return To Sender", the Boots Randolph sax intro comes much more from the left channel (like the LP), and the overall soundstage is much more vital and distinct. A great upgrade for a great price!

4.0 out of 5 stars Elvis sings like a bird [seagull?....] 13 Feb 2010
By Phil S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Okay, they didn't re-mix, but this time the original, flat mix is fine with me - works along the lines of the lean and light musical that Paramount presented back in the Kennedy era, when all was happy and hopeful, and Elvis was engaged during filming and recording of under-appreciated teen flicks.

I agree about the clunkers, but Elvis' singing and some terrific melodies and beats make it a groovy, uplifting listen. More demanding fans might note that the musical soundtrack has nothing "Hawaiian" about it - I cannot detect a ukelele, etc. on the whole l.p.

Title tune, of course, is a fantastic Lieber-Stoller mirthful uptempo, interestingly enough, a semi-flop for the great Coasters, the year before. All the fast songs are hip and infectious. Ballads are really beautiful, especially the deleted after-hours, poignant lament "I Don't Want To" (fans note that the movie trailor has a snippet from the deleted movie scene!); the ethereal "Where Do You Come From?", another song edited from the story. (Elvis *speaks* the title in a nicely lit scene).

Cool price-tag for this CD.

3.0 out of 5 stars A nice set for avid Elvis fans 18 Feb 2008
By A Fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The soundtrack for Girls! Girls! Girls! was a big hit in the US when it was released in late 1962 reaching number 3 on the album chart and was certified GOLD by the RIAA. This CD includes one of Elvis' signature songs, Return to Sender, which was a huge hit worldwide. It peaked at number 2 on the US singles chart and was certified PLATINUM. It's flip side, Where Do You Come From, was a minor hit just cracking the top 100. The title song was a hit in other countries including France. This release includes numerous alternate takes not available on the original release.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's worth the effort! 15 May 2013
By Roger Ashton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I remember really enjoying the movie when I was a kid. Then, after several years have passed it's not as fun as it used to be. The same with the music. It's a fun listen. But nothing really jumps out and says "classic" But, then, maybe it doesn't neet to.
