Yes this album is virtually unlistenable, but as a youth these blue Camden albums were all that many of us could afford. It was the Woolworth experience. Now, as a person with less years in front than behind I absolutely adore wallowing in the nostalgia (6 have been reissued)! Also we shouldn't forget that these are legitimate albums from the 70s discography and therefore essential for the completist (they are not new compilations). My only criticism is that the British versions are not on release; 'US Male' and 'Elvis Sings Hits From His Movies Plus Two Recent Hits' (mad title) both deserve a release - if only for the great sleeves. I also think the sleeve on the UK Separate Ways was better (complete with gas guzzling 70s cars), I give it 4 stars for having the courage to be Kitch!
