5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonder, 24 Aug 2011
This review is from: On Stage (Audio CD)
On Stage is a great album but imo not quite as strong as 'That's The Way It Is' or 'In Memphis'. The two Beatles covers seem a little half hearted to me and slow the momentum of the album. Those tracks apart this is yet another illustration of Elvis's talent, versatility and charisma. I particularly love the two rockier numbers, See See Rider and Polk Salad Annie (if you can watch trhe accompanying performances on youtube). The Wonder of You is one of the great love songs and his version of Sweet Caroline makes Neil Diamond sound like a pub singer.

Elvis Presley. Truely the King.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Believe, 22 Aug 2011
This is truely one of the greatest (and most overlooked) albums ever made. Far far better than Revolver or Pet Sounds and maybe even What's Going On. The vocals throughout are incredible, displaying Elvis' range, power and versatility. The band are slick and tough. Witness the drumming on Patch It Up, or the horns on I've Lost You, or the base on Just Can't Help Believing'... But special mention goes to Just Pretend which is a genuine lost gem and one of my favorite tracks of all time.
