Format: Audio CD
Even though his films were often slated, Elvis can boast numerous number 1 hits from his movie career and also that he was the highest earner in Hollywood for a while.
Although 'It Happened At The World Fair' had only 2 chart successes,'One Broken Heart For Sale' being the biggest hit, the soundtrack has some great music. Ballad fans will love 'They Remind Me Too Much Of You' and 'Im Falling In Love Tonight', but as in most of Elvis' albums there is something for everyone. Feel good songs aplenty on this soundtrack as well as various alternate versions on the 1 CD, its about time.
This album was recorded in 1962 when Elvis was going through a slight transition, but his voice is superb and I would advise all music fans to listen to 'How Would You Like To Be' and see if you dont get a buzz out of it, then listen to the alternate version on the album and see what Elvis was about, while he still had some control over the sound of his movie soundtracks.
There will be a couple of tracks at least on this album that you like, if not more, it caters for all tastes..

A panoramic Hollywood color musical yielded a rather flat movie soundtrack, originally with ten tunes, about half of which were uninspired situational songs. It's been written that many fans were discontented with the album. Well, Follow That Dream hasn't added more titles, but they've given us some nice alternate takes.
If you already own the "Double Features" version, and you're not a deep collector, there's not a strong impetus to pay the higher price - although the booklet is excellent.
The sonics are superb and this is significant in that Elvis Presley's singing is remarkable on all cuts: even on a slight number like the uptempo closer "Happy Ending" his vocal acrobatics become the stuff of Music Appreciation classes across the world. He turns another plotline-number "A World Of Our Own" into something exceptional. The two children's songs, though not for the rockabillies, are beautiful. The two Don Robertson ballads are exquisite. It's not rock and roll, it's not the blues, but you can't say Presley wasn't involved in this music.
Ofcourse we all know about the bouyant hit single "One Broken Heart For Sale." It's gotten a bad rap over the years as the first A-side not to crack the Top Ten, but it's really in the "Return To Sender" class.
