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

The Impossible Dream is a must have for Elvis fans as it is a near complete concert from Las Vegas in January 27th 1971, the 1971 concerts are so hard to get your hands on and they are told to be some of his best concerts. The opening track is the first time ever Elvis used the 2001 Theme from the previous day (26th-opening night) and it is one of the best versions and you can hear the audience get very excited - excellent! Elvis opens with That's All Right which is a good version, as you can tell the Vegas showroom had some sound problems during this engagement and Elvis had a cold, but he still sounds excellent. The songs he sang during these few opening days were sung excellently so i won't go through every song, some of the highlights include It's Now Or Never and the show closer for 1971 The Impossible dream (which was the replacement for Can't Help Falling In Love which was sung during the middle of the show!)excellent versions of How Great Thou Art as usual, and great versions of very rare live songs Only Believe (which was the current single)and Snowbird from the recently released Elvis Country album. All in all it's an excellent show with some stand out performances, the only down side is the hotel's sound system, buy it today!!!

Format: Audio CD
Of the final years of Elvis Presley as a concert artist, 1971 is undoubtedly the least well documented year. After the delectable abundance of the previous year with the "On Stage" and especially the "That's The Way It Is" sound and video recordings, 1971 remains a dark hole. RCA didn't record any concerts that year and the few bootlegs which surfaced are all below standard with disagreeable sound. The present Follow That Dream release, compiling performances from Elvis' 4th Las Vegas season in January 1971, is by all means a most welcome addition to the catalogue. True, the sound quality leaves a lot to be desired with tons of tape hiss, but is nonetheless better than anything we got from this season so far and considered within its historical context, this disc deserves to be heard by anyone interested in the man and how he developed during the 70's. By its rush tempo the general atmosphere of the concert is quite different from the previous Las Vegas seasons, but Elvis is in fine voice and in good spirits throughout, often sounding raw and risky (although the recording might be partly responsible for that) and this issue includes several songs which were rarely performed in concert, such as "It's Now Or Never", "Only Believe" and "Snowbird".

In 1971, one would have expected a "tight" and focussed Elvis at all his concerts. For this reason, I bought the latest FTD release, but must express major disappointment at both sound quality and the King's delivery on most of the songs. He seems in a hurry and fools around too much, resulting in a fast and short show.
Nevertheless, the renditions of "Impossible Dream" and "Snowbird" are particularly good. The show is also better than "It's Midnight", but not close to the 1977 energy of "Spring Tours.

Format: Audio CD
Although this album consists of a selection of song titles that have been available on other releases several times over for many years it is always hopeful that we will be given something new in the way the songs are delivered, arranged or something
entertaining or of interest on the recording.
Not so here!
This release fails to deliver anything we have not heard before,
although from a 1971 show, Elvis hurrys nearly every song missing words or complete lines & cutting them short, he comes across has being totally uninterested in doing this show, not what you would expect from Elvis so early into his return to live performances.
To make things worse the sound quality is terrible...at times it makes you skip to the next track hoping things will be better
but never are.
The one thing I cannot understand is why FTD would release such a poor CD...I believe Elvis fans deserve to be treated in a much better way than to be sold what is a very poor package.
If this is the best they can offer perhaps they are running out of decent material to release...either way FTD, nothing like this again please, if you don't have anything decent to offer us please don't rip us off.
