A fabulous release from the 'Follow That Dream' Label for Elvis Collectors. A most underrated classic album when first released by RCA in 1975 and the rockin' hit single taken from it "T-R-O-U-B-L-E" should have achieved a much higher chart placing than what it received.
"Elvis Today" should be up there and talked about in the same breath and context as other classic seventies Elvis albums such as "Elvis Country", "That's The Way It Is", "As Recorded at Madison Square Garden", "Aloha From Hawaii" and "Live on Stage In Memphis 1974".
There's a great mix of rock, country, r&b and ballads with such great studio performances as "And I Love You So", "Shake A Hand", "Susan When She Tried", "Pieces of My Life" and "I Can Help". This 2-CD release is a great addition to any fans collection because included on the second disc are the original session mixes of all the songs on the album - the way it was intended to release them before EP had a change of heart in favour of overdubbing all the tracks.
Nevertheless, whether you are a fan of the original album or the original session mixes of the album you are guaranteed an enjoyable listen as 'The King' works his way through some of his final best studio performances of his career. There are some out-takes included here too which boost the value for money rating of this FTD release.
A Good Purchase!
