I was a little apprehensive ordering this CD, as I am not a great fan of re-mixes, in general, but this CD proved to be excellent. From the exciting opening, to the soft tones of the duet "Love me Tender", this CD had me hooked. I absolutely love it and would recommend it to music fans, as well as die hard Elvis followers. I can't quite understand some of the comments left on earlier reviews, yes, Sony have made changes to Elvis' beloved songs, but Elvis himself is still very much the centre of this CD. The more funky, upbeat tones, just shake things up a bit, giving a different take (not suggesting for, one minute, better!)on Elvis classics. I'm a great Elvis fan and don't usually like to think of his music beinging altered, but in this case I think "Viva Elvis" is a knock out. Happy listening!
