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
Originally released on LP in 1974, the entire contents of this album were recorded at the famous Memphis Stax Studios. Many people are not aware that Elvis in fact held two recording sessions at this studio, which were used on 3 different albums. After the great success of the Aloha from Hawaii show in Jan 1973, Elvis was keen to record again in Memphis. American Sound was no longer available, so for 5 days from 21st to 25th July of that year he laid down 10 tracks at Stax, which went onto his "Raised On Rock album". Between the 10th & 16th of December he returned again to the studio on McLemore Avenue, which was a convenient 12 minute drive from Graceland. In that time he taped 18 really excellent songs, 10 of which are on this album. The remaining songs went onto his "Promised Land" album. Song choice is a very personal thing, but of the 3 albums of material Elvis recorded at Stax this is my personal favourite. There is really not one bad track on here, but if you've not heard "Talk About The Good Times" with it's amazing piano solo 'crossing the room' in stereo, then you ought to buy it just for that! This CD is a straight re-issue of the original LP, but painstakingly remastered and sounding better than ever before. Try it!!

The album that includes songs like "Talk About The Good Times" and, my own personal favourite, "Good Time Charlie's Got The Blues", we are led to believe this is where the title of this seventies Elvis album came from.

Another underrated album of work from 'The King' but a most thoroughly enjoyable one, and one which should be mentioned in the same sentence as Elvis' "Promised Land" and "Today" albums.

I love Elvis' 1970's body of studio work and don't really have a real bad word to say about such albums as this, as opposed to the mediocre and downright sappy material he was recording ten years previous on such soundtracks as "Girl Happy", "Roustabout", "Harum Scarum", "Frankie & Johnny" and "Paradise Hawaiian Style"...'nuff said.

I admire the arrangements and instrumentation on "Good Times" which also delivers a few recordings which bear gospel tones - the soulful "I Got A Feelin' In My Body", the heartfelt "If That Isn't Love" and the rockin' jamming of the aforementioned "Talk About The Good Times". The cover of "Lovin' Arms" is something else to behold and is quite rivetingly haunting. The hit singles are featured on this album too - the country based "I've Got A Thing About You Baby" and the blistering ballad "My Boy" are both welcome additions to any Elvis 70's fanatic's collection.

But, for me personally, RCA saves one of the best Elvis performances until last with the beautiful r&b of "Good Time Charlie's Got The Blues" which will leave one with a wonderful feeling of melancholy anticipating another spin of this CD album.

One of my favourite Elvis albums from the 1970s - revisited. From one of the last long studio sessions RCA ever got out of him, in two halves, one in July 1973 and the other that December. The July session was 'problematic' owing to Elvis' 'health' issues, but by December he was in much better form. As with all FTD album revisits, we get the original album, followed by Session Highlights, then on disc 2 more from the session, including some master takes. Lots of studio talk and messing around as usual from Elvis. The stand out song? Good Time Charlie's Got The Blues. Six takes in all, but none including the lines about taking the drugs to ease the pain - odd that! Thoroughly recommended

There are some good songs on this c.d. 'Good time Charlie's got the blues'and 'My boy' being the best, in my opinion. Well worth purchasing. Although there are only 10 songs on the c.d.
