A different type of Elvis book, 15 Dec 2006
I have been looking forward to this FTD release for quite some time and the book did not disapoint but the two discs did. Its nice to have a book not full of Elvis pictures. This book is all about the songwriters that wrote songs for Elvis and its great to see some of the things written explaining the background of the songs especially on some of my favourite Elvis numbers.
Disc 1 is a big disapointment and you will have most of it from other FTD releases or bootlegs, I was hoping it was going to be outtakes & demos but its mostly live. I try to avoid FTD live releases as I find live albums a con.
Disc 2 is the songs by the original artists which again you probably have elsewhere on those dodgy Elvis compilation CDs like 'the songs that inspired the King '. I thought this was poor.
The book however is worth the money alone.
