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

5.0 out of 5 stars The Marathon Winner 14 Aug 2002
Format:Audio CD
What a release! 20 superb alternate and rehearsal tracks in brilliant sound quality. A must for Elvis fans knowing that these recording sessions influenced his August 1970 Vegas concerts and displayed on video releases such as Thats The Way It Is and The Lost Performances. Hear the unedited and unspliced versions of A Hundred Years From Now, complete with some coarse but humourous language. Superb early takes of Bridge Over Troubled Water, I've Lost You, Love Letters and I'll Never Know, which always show the song very different to the polished released version. Buy This Now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Elvis' Studio Perfection 27 Aug 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is an outstanding example of Elvis' great work in the studio. The alternate takes reflect his passion for perfection and enjoyment. Tracks particularly strong are "I've Lost You"; "Bridge over Troubled Waters"; "Mary in the Morning" and "Life".
Sound quality is superb with Elvis' voice prominently powerful. The band - with the brilliant James Burton evident throughout -remains an essential element of the successful Presley formula.
A "must have" not only for the ardent fan, but also for the casual fan looking to hear the "Great Man" truly at his very best in the studio.

5.0 out of 5 stars The "King" at his very best 20 Aug 2002
Format:Audio CD
Another winner from the FTD series - sound quality is superb. The alternate takes of "I've Lost You"; "Life"; and "Bridge Over Troubled Waters" are particularly outstanding.
Throughout all 20 tracks, Elvis' voice is as always very powerful - and delivered with great passion and perfection.
The band - with the brilliant James Burton prominent- are an essential element of the Presley formula - and never more so than on this outstanding production.
A "must have" not only for all ardent fans, but also for those casual fans who want to own a CD of the "King" truly at his very best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic ! 23 May 2008
Format:Audio CD
This album was delivered in record time by this company and was In excellent condition on arrival. This is Elvis at his very best ( Not that he is not all of the time but that is me just been biased!). To be objective though, his voice is amazing and the album is atmospheric to the point of closing your eyes and just listening. You can almost imagine him been about two foot away from you and hes almost in the room with you. It is reasltic in its sound production and has not been affected by too much digitial processing in the mix. Moreover, 'The Elvis of the Seventies' is well presented here and overall this is one hell of a fabulous album. Furtheremore,this is a must fro any Elvis or non Elvis fan and if you purchase you will not be disapointed.

The cost after delivery and VAT included was just over twenty pounds sterling. However, it was worth every penny and the best album I have purchased of late. I will be on the look out for albums of equal quality and that has supporting information included and qulaity cover and picture as this disc. If you have seen 'Thats the Way it is' then the tracks will bring back fond moments and memories.

Enjoy and buy as soon as you can afford...

5.0 out of 5 stars Second pass at Nashville Outtakes 18 Mar 2005
Format:Audio CD
It's logical that fans will be put off by the fact that this is the second hunt around the cutting room floor of the Nashville Marathon (after the superior "A Hundred Years From Now"), but this is never the less brilliant.
Tackling the more pop side of these sessions, we find Elvis is great voice, largely singing simpler version of well know classics.
The album starts with the perfunctory instrumental jam, which one assumes is there to just hide the leisurely pace of the session, and indeed falling into "Twenty Days" and "The Sound Of Your Cry", two less than brilliant songs, does not fill one with great hope.
But an early take of "I've Lost You", stripped of the lush backing, shows the real beauty of a minor classic. Good pop songs like "The Next Step Is Love", "I'll Never Know" and "Love Letters" are well worth a listen. The versions don't differ much from the released take. "A Hundred Years from now" and "Rags to Riches" are fun, but hardly for the aficionado with joking - at times less than tuneful - rushes.
And now for the highlights. "Sylvia" and especially "Heart Of Rome" are great tracks, hidden in obscure singles and lesser albums, but here they are surrounded by great material and really shine. "Mary In The Morning", hardly Elvis' finest hour, shines with the orchestral backing stripped, who knew there was a beautiful mouth organ wailing in the mess. And finally we have the stunning "How The Web Was Woven", prizes for those that can listen to Elvis toying with this classic without tears in their eyes.
Oh yes, and "Life"... one take of "Life" inflicted on man kind is one take too many.
