Product Description

This is the Deluxe CD Edition of the long anticipated new Elvis Presley remix album called Elvis Presley "Re:Volution" This album, praised by new and old Elvis fans, sets the new standard regarding Elvis remixes. Produced by Spankox, who also produced the "Baby Let's Play House" n.1 remix hit for Elvis and the "Re:Versions", "Re:Mixes" and "Christmas Remixes" albums, "Re:Volution" reinvents Elvis' original songs offering new and old fans a fresh approach to the King of Rock'n'Roll's music: it truly is "Elvis as you've never heard him before". The tracklist, 10 excellent tracks, is opened by the stunning reggae remix of "Pocketful Of Rainbows" - already billed by many fans "the best Elvis remix ever" - indeed a real summer hit. It also includes, among the other newly remixed tracks, "It's Now Or Never", "You Give Me Fever", "Stuck On You" and a phenomenal new Stereo remix of "I Gotta Know". These new remixes can also be heard on the official website www.elvisrevolution.com. Spankox (aka Agostino Carollo) is an Italian producer, songwriter and DJ who has a long string of hits under his belt. His track "To The Club" stormed the dance charts and has become a real club classic, while track "So True", released under the AGO moniker, reached the n.10 of the official Billboard USA Top 100 Dance Radio Airplay Chart in April 2011.

This is the third of these re-mix albums I've bought (I skipped the Christmas one). It's an entertaining listen but way too short on playing time. Clocking in at a mere 26 mins, featuring only 10 tracks, for the price it should be double this length, i.e. more tracks. Given that the music's already recorded, it surely wouldn't take too long to re-mix a few more and give better value for money. One final point, how is this a "Delux" edition, it's in a standard jewel case. A card slipcase is not enough to qualify it as deluxe.

Purchased along with three other volumes, I hesitated for a long time before sending for these remix albums. And my heart was pounding with dread as I slotted the first disc into my player. The first few seconds were filled with natural and instinctive resentment towards anything or anyone tampering with Elvis Presley's music, but then, my hand reached for the volume control and I found myself raising the volume rather than lowering it or even switching it off altogether. Then, I raised the volume again, and again, and then again!

Wait a minute now. This could not have been possible. Not from a diehard Elvis fan like me. No way!

But yes, I discovered that not only do I like these remixes, I love 'em!! Why? Because they sound like Elvis recorded them today. And because so much respect has gone towards these Elvis tracks. The remix artists who waved their magic wand over the old tracks that had been giving joy to the world for decades are obviously big Presley fans and knew what they were doing. We may not prefer these over the original gems but boy do they sound good too. And here's the trick - they still sound E L V I S.

There is so much new energy on these new remixes from mainly added drum and bass sounds that accentuate the power that emanated from the original tracks. And each track is mixed individually to suit the song itself. Whereas you would not hear the original recordings in today's night clubs or dance gigs but they are playing these remixes. And that's what it's all about - they are still listening to Elvis Presley!

There are three more volumes, each with a different name and a different album colour. And with the exception of one or two odd tracks, all the songs on the four volumes are great.

As a longstanding fan I am not supposed to like youngsters messing around with Elvis's music, but I have always felt that much of his music lacked "body" compared with other music from the 1960s onwards so I do welcome these attempts to update the music. Having said that, I still have the originals to turn to, so there is no real harm done with these re-mixes.
So what about the music on this Spankox offering?
I find that it varies between the excellent (Pocketful of Rainbows) and the "why did he bother" category (Big Boots, Wooden Heart). He seems to favour the sound of music coming down a telephone line which spoils some of the tracks and wasn't needed, and Are You lonesome Tonight has so little additional instrumentation that it lends nothing new to the song. Fever reminds me of techno sounds of the 80s and spoils the deliciously sexy feel of the original (which was far sexier than Peggy Lee's version).
Overall it is listenable and has the advantage of the more full sound for playing in the car. There are only 10 tracks and I'm sure he could have found some worthier tracks to work on, however, I don't think you will be disappointed.
On balance though, I much prefer Viva Elvis.

Normally being a massive elvis fan I'm quite skeptical about remixes as I feel the music should be left the way it is. However..... I actually love this album and have bought the other remix albums from spankox too. You can tell he's actually and elvis fan too and not some random cashing in on the king. Ace job and a must buy for elvis fans

Should have been more tracks for this price. Could have combined two of the CDs. Would have made it a better purchase.
