Elvis Sings the Great British Songbook


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

3.0 out of 5 stars At Home With The King 17 May 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
It's such a pity that these "home recordings" were not captured on proffesional equipment. This "fly on the wall" glimpse of Elvis is fascinating, with some real gems, that are sadly only available in this way.
"Mona Lisa" is stunningly good, and exquisitely sung, as is "If I Loved You", from the musical "Carousel." This is simply Elvis alone on piano, giving a superlative reading of ths great song.
This would probably appeal more to huge fans of the King; the casual observer won't find it so interesting.

3.0 out of 5 stars Elvis at home 7 May 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This CD gives you an idea what kind of music Elvis loved to perform in private. His love of gospel music and close harmony comes very clear in this collection. Basically this is a record for collectors and fans only. If you're only an casual Elvis-fan you probably won't get much out of it. The sound quality, althought very good indeed for an amateur recording, is not equal to a studio sound. These recordings weren't ever meant for commercial release. They were meant for Elvis' own pleasure and for him to practice future recordings. For an Elvis-fan is a great thrill to hear several new songs. It's like being invited to be a fly on the wall in Elvis' living room.

5.0 out of 5 stars Elvis, the most versatile singer EVER 13 May 2009
Format:Audio CD
This CD gives an insight into Elvi's world from a different perspective. The man was a genius. In England there are a lot of people who say Elvis was not a country singer. Elvis was a singer who rolled numerous genres of music into his own style. This CD proves that Elvis was the most natural instinctive country music singer ever. He will never be surpassed in my lifetime. GREAT CD. Mike Wright.

4.0 out of 5 stars IT IS WHAT IT IS, GET IT? 9 Dec 2001
By D. McClure - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Reading through some of these reviews is enough to put anyone with common sense through hell. These were not recorded in the 70's. They were not recorded in "The Jungle Room". The sound quality is not horrible, listen for yourselves as Amazon.com gives you the ability to hear samples. Is the sound as good as a studio recording? Surprise surprise! No! I like to listen to this cd and just imagine being in the moment with Elvis. There he is with his friends or sometimes alone playing his favorite songs just for the fun of it. For those of us who love Elvis, we want to hear everything he sang so don't speak for us when you snidely say this should have never been released. The cd is called "Home Recordings" so don't be shocked when you get HOME RECORDINGS! For you Elvis fans I must say this - you will be getting what you've always heard about, Elvis sitting at the piano with his friends gathered around singing songs. I know I certainly always wanted to hear that, and I know many other Elvis fans would love to hear it. "What Now My Love" is beautiful, as are many in this cd. How can you review a cd named "Home Recordings" when all you do is criticize the whole concept of home recording?

3.0 out of 5 stars For Diehards Only - But There Are Plenty of Us 29 April 2005
By Richard B. Luhrs - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Obviously, no one is going to start an Elvis collection with a disc of informal, at-home recordings unrelated to any of the King's studio sessions or tour rehearsals. This is a package designed and released for the sake of hardcore fans only, a curio for the curious. As such, it is necessarily far from perfect, but the target audience here has no interest in perfection; they - we - just want some more Elvis.

Some of the points raised in previous reviews, which critique THE HOME RECORDINGS as if it were a proper Elvis studio release, should be addressed. The sound quality here is not awful, nor even poor - indeed, given the source material, it's pretty darn good. Yes, the King is challenged and at times even drowned out by the voices of his accompanists, crying babies, background chatter and so forth; but that's only to be expected if not necessarily appreciated. Few of the performances really work as songs, but those that do - the lovely and haunting "Dark Moon," "It's No Fun Being Lonely," "What Now My Love," "Tumbling Tumbleweeds" and the hilariously mutilated "Tennessee Waltz" among them - are sure to please Elvis fans and casual listeners alike.

From the standpoint of historical interest, these recordings offer at least a glimpse of the sort of music Elvis and friends made by and for themselves, which again is unlikely to impress anyone but the avowed enthusiast. Several of these songs later turned up on Elvis albums and/or in his onstage repertoire in radically different (and better) form, and it's amusing to hear them gone through in this embryonic, off-the-cuff manner. Perhaps the most interesting aspect of THE HOME RECORDINGS, however, is the fact that most of the tapes date from 1966, at which point Elvis had been reduced to a sort of singing Dean Jones through years of cranking out schlock Hollywood comedies and their accompanying schlock Hollywood soundtracks. With that in mind, one hears in these spontaneous performances not so much technical imperfection and excessive looseness as a reassuring statement of the King's continued commitment to his craft even at the very nadir of his career.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Rare Insight 22 Feb 2000
By Brandon Peacy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This release should be listened to not for its sound quality, but for its historical significance. This is a must-have for anyone who is curious as to how Elvis approached songs; deciding which ones worked for him and which ones didn't. This is an extremely rare insight into the mind of the most successful entertainer of the 20th century, as well as a grand testament to the raw beauty of Elvis' voice.This release is highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Home Recordings Is 19 Oct 2006
By Timmer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I grew up listening to my brother & his buddies literally practicing in the garage. They were good enough to have a "following" parked in our backyard, curbside & behind our home - much to my dad's dismay. Although a long time Elvis fan, I've only recently began collecting Elvis music. This really IS some guy with a recording device sitting next to Elvis & his pals. So if you can - sit back, close your eyes & picture yourself in Elvis' den with a glass of lemonade. All our friends are here & they are just relaxing & singing & most of the time they sound really good. Sometimes, they just want to have fun. Don't we all? And someone thought to turn on the tape machine & now we can recall those fond memories of sitting around & just being. It's like carrying a worn out photo of you & your best friends pulling it out & saying oh yea, remember. . .

5.0 out of 5 stars Elvis From the Beginning ! 10 July 2006
By Dina D. Potter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD is Great !! This is Elvis from the start--you are not at the concerts ! This is for TRUE Diehard people that grew up with Elvis. If that's not you, then pass this up--but if you were there from the beginning then you WILL appreciate this CD. I wish there were more CD'S like this --- I think it's awsome--I feel I'm in the same room with Elvis while he's singing. GET this CD !! Dina
