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
The packaging, as ever with these FTD 7 inches is wonderful. Photos (that are actually relevant to the material) complete recording notes and background... all in place.

The quality of Raised On Rock is well known. RCA were pushing Elvis into giving them a more 'roots' based album, trying to recreate the magic of Burning Love I guess. It didn't work. Technical issues, Elvis' health and commitment were all factors in Raised On Rock being mostly a commercial and critical disaster for Elvis.

While Elvis isn't in prime form, It's great to hear "Three Corn Patches" and "Find Out What's Happening", complete with false starts, radically different phrasing and the usual fooling around. They benefit from the more earthy sound. It's great to hear Elvis singing bits of random songs too, as ever: "Three Coins In A Fountain" this time! You also get a song that is very difficult to get from Elvis, a fairly complete take of It's Different Now. Lovely song too.

The inclusion of the Instrumental Tracks is of questionable value... one can only see these as filler... and anyone that offers the argument that FTD are just being completists touch on my biggest criticism. The July sessions out of Stax produced two other songs, that are white-washed over in the collection. I realise they are trying to re-create the album, but let's put "I've Got A Thing About You Baby" and "Take Good Care Of Her" back where they belong. Although "Take Good Care Of Her" is probably the worst thing to come out of this indifferent session, "I've Got A Thing About You Baby" is wonderful and deserves to be heard with its sister recordings.

This was not one of the best when first released. Competent songs, competently done, you rather get the impression they all turned up and went home rather than enjoy themselves. The CD has a bit more than the original studio album but the cover is the most dynamic thing about it. Worth getting at discounted prices, essential for completion of a collection, but not one to write home about.

This is great music and I'm sure many of the outtakes will be illuminating. The problem here is that two other songs, "Take Good Care of Her" and "I've Got a Thing About You Baby" were recorded at these July, 1973 sessions. They were released only as a single so they were not on the original album. However, four other songs that weren't on the original album are included here. I usually love the FTD releases overseen by the most excellent Elvis fan of all time, Ernst Jorgensen. He literally wrote the (wonderful) book on Elvis' sessions and most of his compilations are delightfully comprehensive. I might get this one anyway, but from a compulsive completist standpoint, it will never be quite as satisfying as it could have been.

Still enjoying "new" Elvis 27 Dec. 2007
By Irene - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
"Raised on Rock" by Elvis

It's amazing, the man has been gone for 30 years and I am still buying Elvis music for my brother for Christmas. This was delivered on Christmas Eve and the headphones have not left my brother's head since then (except for work, sleep, eating and showering). He is a sophisticated fan, cannot impress him with the standard re-releases of Elvis stuff. He is THRILLED with this, has wanted it for months and thanks to Amazon, although I had to wait until 12/21/07 to order, my brother is happy on Christmas and telling everyone what a great sister he has. This is for the true fan who wants to hear anything from Elvis that has never been released before. Thanks Amazon!

Irene, Caldwell, NJ
