Product Description

CD Description

It would be an unorthodox musical palette that elected 1961 as the period in which Elvis Presley made his finest records, but as that year s charts were littered with routine and mundane platters by far too nancy boys all seemingly called Bobby, singles as strong as Elvis Latest Flame , Little Sister , Feel So Bad and the evergreen Can t Help Falling In Love were unencumbered by any strong competition on their way to the top of hit parades the world over. Presley s albums across the second year of the new decade were limited to film soundtracks and the well received Something For Everyone which was his first Number One LP since his 1957 Christmas Album. While neither Flaming Star, Wild In The Country nor Blue Hawaii could boast track lists as strong as former celluloid glories such as King Creole or Jailhouse Rock, they all had standout cuts that made the films they accompanied somewhat less mundane than the scriptwriters alone could achieve. And while the year in general for Elvis was a frantic round of recording, acting and even performing the odd benefit show, the music RCA released or which accompanied his movies was proof again that Elvis still remained not just a hugely popular icon and heartthrob, but a truly gifted singer, a once-in-a- lifetime performer and a musical entertainer without equal. Every note released by Elvis during 1961 is included here on this double CD set which continues the Complete Elvis series towards its ultimate goal of providing a comprehensive library of every record ever released by The King.

4.0 out of 5 stars incomplete 61 Sessions! 28 Jun 2012
Format:Audio CD
The product description is quite inaccurate! It only covers the sessions up until March 23 '61. The excellent June and October sessions aren't included nor is the Follow that Dream or Kid Galahad sets. Nice idea but really this is fatally flawed! What idiot writes these product reviews? Even the cover shot is clearly from 1956 and certainly not 1961!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not So Complete or Accurate!! 3 Dec 2013
Format:Audio CD
When a record label releases a compilation and boldly names it The Complete '61 Sessions, you expect the content to be just that. Well, this is incomplete with so many other recordings made in '61 missing.

The bigger crime in my opinion is that with all the thousands of available pictures from 1961, they mysteriously picked a black and white shot from 1956 to adorn the front cover. This is so numbingly annoying.

I apologise for sounding negative about it, but that is how I feel when people use Elvis JUST for the money, and mislead thousands of buyers along the way. It is disrespectful to both Elvis and his fans, as well as casual buyers.

As a package, this could easily have been a 5 star item had proper care and consultation been taken.
