Elvis Sings the Great British Songbook


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
A remarkable release from the 'Follow That Dream' Team which is a very worthwhile companion to the other '68 Comeback-related material released on this collector's label, and the standard Sony/BMG label.

Here, we are treated to out-takes of Elvis at one of the most passionate times of his career, recording the soundtrack of the production numbers for his landmark Television Special. The different takes of these songs are a revelation and Elvis revels in all the glory of it, injecting so much raw passion into such numbers as 'Let Yourself Go', 'If I Can Dream', 'Saved' and the opening TV show medley of 'Trouble'/'Guitar Man'. The soundtrack of the production numbers were recorded specifically for Elvis' 'lip synching' during the taping of the production numbers on the show, but what is interesting to note is that the opening 'Trouble' and 'If I Can Dream' from the TV Special broadcast are both sung LIVE.

The other revelation on this CD is the June 24th, 1968 dressing-room rehearsal at NBC Studios in Burbank - a few days before Elvis & the guys perform in the round before a live audience and the NBC cameras. This rehearsal session was recorded on Elvis' tape machine and is not of the most perfect quality, but it is completely audible and a wonderful historical document of the time.

This is a highly recommended purchase and if you're a fan, especially of this period of THE KING'S culture-shaking career, then you're gonna love this!

This is quite an interesting release. There are several rather different sounding takes and of course we get the dressing room rehearsal in full too. Generally though there isn't much difference between this and the previous '68 stuff previously released (ergo only 4 stars)

For Collectors: ***** / For Casual Fans ** 24 Nov. 2006
By Phil S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The packaging is exquisite, including the attractive framing of the songlist, but "Collectors" and "Casual Fans" beware: "Blue Moon", "Young Love", "Oh, Happy Day", probably the titles mostly likely to entice buyers are small fragments, not even long enough to be considered parts of a medley. The longtime Collector will get some enjoyment from "Blue Moon"; "Oh, Happy Day" doesn't sound like much more than the song title itself. It looks great in print, but for the uninitied it could be a serious disappointment.
Another title "I Found That Light" is not the "new" song buyers who are not familiar with Gospel music might expect. It's actually a medley element - "Up Above My Head" apparently should have been listed as "Up Above My Head"/"I Found That Light" on the original release. Having said that, it's still a stirring number.
Previously unreleased "Dressing Room" performances of "I Got A Woman" and "When It Rains, It Really Pours" are two of the most exciting things Elvis ever cut - and these tunes were for *personal reference*! For the serious fan/collector, these two tracks are worth the price of the whole CD.
Add "Memories" to that. It's an "alternate vocal" to the familiar music bed. The shoulda-been-number-one-Pop Valentine should be included in any future Presley collection where his "art" is the theme. It's quite an experience for a fan who values a tune over time, to be moved *again* by the same song (with a different "feel").
The CD title tune is another amazing alternate of the E.P. semi-hit from '68; the backing isn't as tight but the lead vocal is even stronger than on the TV Special remake. The famous B-side, "It Hurts Me", another shoulda-been, is at least as good as the original from the show (originally not included in the first two telecasts).
Most of the rest have their "moments" - the tracks are for those who just love to listen to Elvis. Example: an outtake of "Trouble" will leave you "Breathless"! JLL might agree!!
An Arthur Rank Production 25 Jan. 2014
By Johnny Heering - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a limited edition CD featuring unreleased material relating to NBC's 1968 Elvis special, popularly known as "The Comeback Special". The first two-thirds of the CD is alternate takes of material filmed for the show. The last third of the CD is a rehearsal for the "sit down" part of the special. It should be noted that the rehearsal was recorded on a tape recorder and is not of great sound quality. Having said that, it is still good to hear it. The outtakes from the rest of the show are fun to hear, too. Of course, this CD is more for hard core Elvis fans than casual Elvis fans.

CD Would Not Play 15 Aug. 2013
By Jefferson L. Trippett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
CD arrived with some sort of powder on it. I cleaned it and still it would not play in the player. There was some sort of white film on it. I was able to get it to load to my PC. Otherwise, it would have been a waste of money.
