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

Product Description

Recorded between March 1961 and March 1962 over a total of five separate sessions, Pot Luck was finally ready for release in June 1962. Whilst never quite attaining the status of Elvis' earlier albums, it still performed well, peaking at #4 in the US. However, Elvis, popularity in the UK showed no sign of diminishing, where the album would become his seventh chart topper, as well as becoming his fifteenth consecutive album to make the Top 5 (out of fifteen releases). Much of the album was written by long time Elvis collaborators Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman, who composed five of the album's twelve tracks.

Format: Audio CD
On this 1962 album, the King presents us with some fine examples of the best early 60's pop music. POT LUCK is a delicious collection of songs that proves once again the wide musical range of Elvis Presley and reminds us of is amazing vocal talent. For the quality of this album contribiuted the fact that Elvis received songs from the best songwriters of the time:Doc Pomus/ Mort Shuman, Otis Blackwel/Winfield Scott and (no mather what some people think) Ben Weisman/Fred Wise. Highligths from this album are: The mid-tempo pop tunes: "Kiss me Quick","Fountain of Love", "Such an easy Question" and the classic song "Suspicion". Also nice are the ballads : "Just for old time sake"," Something Blue" and "That's someone Youll never forget".Finally three amazing rockers will leave you breathless, "Gonna get back home somehow", "Night rider" and " Steppin' out of line". As bonus tracks this cd also includes the classic Jerry Leiber/ Mike Stoller hit single "She's not you/ Just tell her Jim said hello", and an interesting Don Robertson ballad "I met her today". So, if you really like good pop music, buy this album!!!

Pot Luck was a big seller on its initial release in 1962, and deservedly so this digitally re-mastered re-release with bonus tracks is excellent.
The critics review states that several top nothch song-writing teams were on board, which is true; but they fail to mention that Elvis wrote two of the songs on this disc. The Latin-esque 'You'll Be Gone' is as dramatic as it is infectious, whilst 'That Someone You Never Forget' is one of the most beautiful, haunting ballads he ever sung.
Pot Luck is, what the title says; from the rockin' 'Gonna Get Back Home Somehow' to the excellent pop that is 'Suspicion', this is stellar stuff.

Not bad - this era does not get the attention, in my opinion, that it deserves. Some wonderful studio recordings were completed around this time. The sound quality is very nice and the songs have more substance than might be expected. There are also fun songs like kiss me quick; on the other hand, slower more serious songs like just tell her Jim said hello, can be appriciated in contrast. Overall, a good variety album!

Another very good album, but different from something for everybody which had consistantly good tracks right the way through. I found that Pot luck and some real standout tracks but also some weaker ones so it sort of balances up the quality of the album, but thats just a personal opinion it is a worth while album. What we did't know ( prob. R.C.A and Tom Parker did) is that this would be the last studio album of newly recorded for a long time , not counting How great thou art I think this would be the last untill the end of the 60's.Anyway its a good album go and buy it.

This has always been my favorite Elvis album as it shows his versatility and voice range. I bought this to replace the original LP, which I still have.
As usual it was delivered in good time and well packaged, well done Amazon.

This Is Another Superb Release From WAX TIME RECORDS , That Has Just Been Released On 16th feb. , But This New Edition Now Has 2 Bonus Tracks Included That Were Around The Same Time Time And Has Every Right To Be On This Excellent Album.
Although The Original Album Was Released Way Back On June 1962, It Still Sounds Fresh Today, Thanks To WAX TIME For Giving It A Helping Hand With The Newly Remastered 180 Gram Audiophile Sound (which is excellent) That Makes Hearing This Great Album Even More Better Than Before. Old Favorites Like , KISS ME QUICK, EASY QUESTION And SUSPICION , Has Never Sounded So Good.
And We Have The Beautiful Tracks Such As , SOMETHING BLUE, JUST FOR OLD TIMES SAKE And I FEEL THAT I"VE KNOWN YOU FOREVER , And The Brilliant STEPPIN" OUT OF LINE (that was cut from the original release of Blue Hawaii album) BUT ALSO ....
We Also Have The Fantastic SHE"S NOT YOU (NO.1 SINGLE) And FOLLOW THAT DREAM (not really a favorite of mine) Included On This Release, To Me Personally I Always Have Enjoyed This Album And My Original Copy Is Not Exactly In Mint Condition But I Really Like It A Lot And Now This Release Has Just Made It Me Enjoy It Even More....WELL DONE WAX TIME.
Go Buy It And Then You Shall Know What I"m Talkin" About....

I already have an earlier version of this on cd.But I had to buy it because it includes"You'll be Gone" A hard to get track. I wish that they would release the collection called"The Bonus Songs" which has only ever been released on vinyl.It included all of the bonus tracks from the Soundtrack albums.
