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

5.0 out of 5 stars The King sang as no one else could....... 16 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The last two albums Elvis did, RCA/BMG has sliced into this fabolous hybrid...These are some of the best ballads ever written and the best recordings avaiable of them. Elvis recorded these songs at home and emphasized that he was more than the king of rock...You've got snappy rockers (Way Down) and tearpershing ballads (Bitter they.., Hurt, He'll have.., She thinks I.. etc. etc.) This was Elvis at his physical worst, but in a strange way near his musical (not artistically) best, especially in regards to the original Moody Blue-songs............Really, go buy it. This is a must!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Elvis Final , Brilliant Album 8 Feb 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Moody Blue was Elvis brilliant last album, it hit #3 in America, Britain and Australia and has sold 14 million copies world-wide.
As a bonus, the songs from the album From Elvis Presley BLVD are here also. This was a fine album, and deserved to be much better known and a bigger seller than it was.
On Moody Blue Elvis goes back to old school rock n roll here with the Diamonds Little Darlin and Pledging My Love. But its the breathtaking Way Down that steals the show, this raw, bass driven rock song was #1 in Britain and a million selling top 20 song in America.
Unchained Melody is another highlight, this is awesome, unlike the Riteous Brothers version, but much much better.
The title track, Moody Blue was also top 10, this is a catchy country song, some seem to think that its disco inspired....i cant see it myself.
Its Easy For You is an Andrew Lloyd Webber song, and you can tell, its dramatic and has some great lyrics.
He'll Have To Go is one of the definitive country songs, but Elvis turns it into a long blues, relsihing the lyrics and bluesy guitar licks.
The bonus tracks come from the under rated From Elvis Presley Boulevard album. This is perhaps the mosts heartfealt album he ever made. Only one fast song here, the tremendous
For The Heart, listen for the slippery bass lines.
Danny Boy is the best version of theb song i've ever heard. Blue Eyes Cryin In The Rain is the Willie Nelson classic; Willies is still the definitive version, Elvis is excellent though, faster and a little honky tonk....apparently Elvis plays bass on this track!
Hurt is astonishing, Elvis vocal power is unrivalled. I'll Never Fall In Love Again was a big hit for Tom Jones, but his schmaltzy over the top version is nowhere near as good as Elvis shatteringly good version heard here.
This is a fine CD, and desreves a place in any collection, it just feels so damn good

4.0 out of 5 stars He thinks we still care 6 Jan 2012
By Dangerous Dave TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Presley's last album and while not a classic it's nothing like as bad as we feared it might be given the man's physical condition at the time. Quite remarkably some of the tracks on it are near classic performances though the level isn't sustained throughout.

The original album contained 6 tracks recorded at Graceland in February and October 1976 plus 4 tracks recorded on tour - the latter were added because Elvis wasn't recording enough studio material. When "Moody Blue" was released on CD in 2000, the tracks from the preceding album, "From Elvis Presley Boulevard" were added, these also coming from the February `76 Graceland sessions, and one of the on tour tracks was dropped.

Enough of boring detail, what was the music actually like? Well there are two tracks from the original "Moody Blue" studio set which stand up well against the majority of Elvis' country records. "She thinks I still care" is a great country weepie from the early days of George Jones. It's received the compliment of several covers over the years but none surely as good as this one. Elvis takes the song, tears it all apart and reconstructs it his way aided by excellent overdubbing from Felton Jarvis. I don't think he ever included it in his stage set but if he did I'd wager there wouldn't have been any dry eyes in the house. Simply a stunner.

The other country goodie is "He'll have to go", a number irrevocably associated with Jim Reeves and indeed, one of his very best songs. It also has received a few good covers over time including a beautiful tex-mex one from Ry Cooder. Presley's version again differs considerably from the original with a deep, deep guitar strongly featuring.

4.0 out of 5 stars Saved by the Bonus Tracks 10 Feb 2014
Format:Audio CD
In terms of his studio albums, Elvis sadly didn’t quite go out with a bang. However, this was certainly not his fault, at least not directly.

It’s (fairly) well known that the quality of the songs Elvis was being offered gradually declined throughout the seventies as a direct result of the ‘Colonel Parker’ (a Dutch-jewish immigrant) demanding shocking percentages of subsequent royalties (perhaps to pay his astronomical casino gambling debts?) that scared the quality songwriters away. This is, in my opinion, quite apparent on Elvis final studio album.

Although, I must say, considering very minimal updates to live setlist and extremely rare recording sessions, it seems that Elvis simply lost interest in the music, possibly due to years of his own artistic integrity and excellence being marginalized and neglected by those who knew much about reproducing dollars but little about music.

The remastered edition of Moody Blue also includes the ten tracks from the previous album, ‘From Elvis Presley Boulevard Memphis Tennessee’ (tracks 10-19), and the tracks on this album are certainly superior to those on the original Moody blue album (tracks 1-9).

The first three tracks on Moody Blue are all live: Unchained Melody is stunning, If You Love Me Let Me Know is scraping average at best, and Little Darlin’ is a mediocre song that Elvis should have rejected outright – though I’m guessing the final album content was no longer Elvis’ concern. Stand out tracks are He’ll Have To Go, She Thinks I Still Care and the fantastic Moody Blue [hardly surprising that this song is so good as it was written by the same man who wrote Suspicious Minds and Always On My Mind].
