5.0 out of 5 stars cool disc to spin!, 24 Sept. 2012
I like this disc. I like the movie songs and especially always love to hear alternate versions instead of the masters I have heard so many times already (which are also cool obviously). It is great to hear Elvis working to get the final master cut done! Above all, this is THE KING at work! real fans should have this disc to finally hear something else then the standard work. Thumbs up!! PS GREAT QUALITY TOO!!

5.0 out of 5 stars EVERY MAN HAS A FLAMING STAR..........., 27 July 2012
cool cool disc. There isn't much material available from these sessions especially not from Flaming Star. This disc is full of alternate material. As a big collector I know they are not available on any disc for purchase now. This disc even got a special 2 & 3 channel mix of Flaming Star which is awesome! I like these early 60's movie tracks. I owned the regular flaming star double features disc and this is a very welcome addition to that disc with a complete different collection of takes and alternate recordings. Especially the outtakes of BRITCHES makes me in a good mood. It is such a happy song. The vocal quality on songs and outtakes like SUMMER KISSES WINTER TEARS is just outstanding. Same counts for WILD IN THE COUNTRY. And above all this the quality is perfect like all other Flashlight Records I own till now. This disc in my opionion is a great theme disc dedicated to these two movies and it finishes off with some original trailers for FLAMING STAR. Get this one if you like the songs from these sessions, you won't be dissapointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars LET'S ROCK!!, 27 July 2012
very cool disc! The masters are obviously Rock & Roll masterpieces and the movie versions are very different to the masters. This is an ultra cool collection of early and legendary Rock & Roll in perfect sound. Fits well in my Elvis and Rock & Roll section. I love theme discs. It covers it all on one disc, Thumbs up for this one! Get it if you can!

5.0 out of 5 stars rock & roll, 18 July 2012
These movie versions are different from the original record versions, that made me decide to get this cd as there aren't too many alternate recordings from this session on the market. The stereo version, and lp & ep masters are great to have in my collection too. Great disc! great songs! and above all: GREAT QUALITY!

5.0 out of 5 stars PERFECTION!, 19 Jun. 2012
Just like the other volume "lost in the 60's fame and fortune" this is just awesome to listen to. Many unreleased takes in perfect quality. This guys voice is in my opinion never beaten. A great disc to spin again anad again and again (and then another time). Also loved the Kiss Me Quick outtakes! Get these if you love Elvis.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome release!, 19 Jun. 2012
Now this is an awesome release! perfect quality and many previously unreleased takes. Also got the other volume "LOST IN THE 60's : KISS ME QUICK" which is of the same quality! One of my favourites until now. Got all releases by this label and also enjoy the other ones daily. Elvis in the early 60's is often forgotten but when you listen to this disc you will hear why he was one of the best vocalists of all time.

4.0 out of 5 stars boxing king, 15 May 2012
I liked this release. This cd offers 50 unreleased outtakes in fairly good quality! I did own other old releases but they didn't match this quality by far, it isn't 5.1 stereo or dolby surround but in my opinion nothing to compaint about, you get over an hour of unreleased Elvis at a price that's fantastic! The other releases of the same label are also very nice! nice package, good quality and better listenable because they do not contain so many takes of the same songs. But for the completists among us kid galahad sessions is a must!
