Finaly all songs of Viva Las Vegas on one album. The best thing of this cd is, that the songs sound how they should sound. This is the best sound there is. You could find this album also on the Double Features album/cd with Roustabout, but forget that one. This is the only cd who do justice to the original songs of the album. On the US release of the album Flaming star you could already hear some songs of Viva Las Vegas in the way they should sound. Now you can buy the whole Viva Las Vegas album in the same quality. It is the difference between playing a cd or not. Well, i played this cd more times allready the Double Features cd that is years in my posession. Some strange mastering they did with a couple of songs with that one, with a lot of echo in Elvis voice. This cd is even better than the collectors FTD cd where they eliminated all echo in a way that that cd doesn't sound either how it should sound. And this cd is about 1/4 of price of the FTD release.

5.0 out of 5 stars Viva this release 19 April 2010
Format:Audio CD
At last Sony have released the full Viva Las Vegas/Love in Las Vegas soundtrack album and at a budget price. Originally, the soundtrack was a vinyl extended play single with just four tracks. Then we got the classic single, Viva Las Vegas / What'd I say and many years later half a dozen extra songs started to appear on various compilation albums. Finally, we get all twelve songs together on one CD. The film may have been average but the songs from writers such as Pomus Shuman, Lieber Stoller, Joy Byers etc. were definately top drawer and Elvis never sounded better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Be lucky... 12 Aug 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Elvis's popularity was already dipping when the movie `Love in Las Vegas' (`Viva Las Vegas' in the USA) came out in 1964, mainly due to British bands (like The Beatles) bringing a new take on pop music to the teen market on both sides of the Atlantic. In fact, The Beatles' first film, `A Hard Day's Night', came out in the same year and did much, much better at the box office than this Elvis movie.

The soundtrack to `Love in Las Vegas' was not released in its entirety at the time. Instead, fans got a vinyl single and an EP (extended play) record, the latter comprising four tracks. A further track (the light operatic song, Santa Lucia) was included on the excellent `Elvis for Everyone' LP in 1965. A couple of other tracks made it on to the first `budget' Elvis LP `Flaming Star' in 1969.

Yet this was one of the better films Elvis made in the Sixties. Despite the pressure to crank out songs for movie after movie, the soundtrack is strong (apart from `The Yellow Rose of Texas/ The Eyes of Texas'), too, and is well worth listening to again. Ironically, the title track `Viva Las Vegas' has become a real standard and (I believe) gets much more airplay these days than the title song of that first Beatles' film!

Whilst there is a filmic production quality to the tracks, they remain highly enjoyable in their own right. Perhaps the real gem is `I Need Somebody to Lean On'. Elvis was 28 when these songs were recorded in 1963 and his voice had a pure, direct quality in that period that really comes through on this ballad.

The cover of Ray Charles's `What'd I Say' (issued on the single with `Viva Las Vegas' at the time of the film's release) is a blast, as is the up-tempo `If You Think I Don't Need You'.
