4.0 out of 5 stars Elvis plays Beethoven & sings karaoke
Well,i think title of this album is a nice place to start this
review,because it clearly defines songs on this cd,and has double meaning.Unfortunately subtitle '29 Great Performances'
is simply untrue.How can 18 sec. of a song be a 'great performance'? And you get plenty of those uncomplete recordings.
What really sales this cd are...

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth having for a collection
I think the Follow That Dream label is pretty good..you get all sorts of goodies that arnt always available otherwise. The cases are pretty good too with unusual photos etc..there are about 8 in the series and will make a really good little collection in due course.
This CD features a bunch of stuff from 1959/60... If you havent heard this sort of thing before you...

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth having for a collection, 8 May 2001
This review is from: Private Moment (Audio CD)
I think the Follow That Dream label is pretty good..you get all sorts of goodies that arnt always available otherwise. The cases are pretty good too with unusual photos etc..there are about 8 in the series and will make a really good little collection in due course.
This CD features a bunch of stuff from 1959/60... If you havent heard this sort of thing before you may find it interesting however you might be better with a copy of The Home Recordings or The Complete Million Dollar Session. Whats good about this "informal" material is that its like having elvis and a few buddies banging away on a piano in the room next door. Anyway there are 29 tracks...its quite hardwork to listen to, not enjoyable really in parts. That said in addition to the 59/60 stuff there are 10 songs from 66..one, moonlight sonata, is really weird. Some of the tracks (Its a Sin to Tell a Lie, Fools Rush in ) are great. In short if you are an occasional Elvis fan dont get this..gets Thats The Way It Is special eddition (3 cds). If you are a big fan get it, if only for the '66 stuff or for yr collection, if you are an in betweeny, well its yr money...

4.0 out of 5 stars Elvis plays Beethoven & sings karaoke, 3 Nov 2005

is simply untrue.How can 18 sec. of a song be a 'great performance'? And you get plenty of those uncomplete recordings.
What really sales this cd are complete and rare versions of famous folk songs like '500 miles' and 'Blowing in the wind'.
Or oddities like Beethovens 'Moonlight sonata' where Elvis plays piano backed up by wierd choir singing.You get some really great performances here,but not in great sound.You get some great singing,and mostly bad guitar/piano playing.Some songs are recorded in karaoke style,with Elvis singing to a instrumental lp,so i guess he was one of the first to do that too!Bottom line is that this album deserves 5 stars from collectors point of view,but i will give it 4 stars for bootleg sound and lack of booklet,but that's no news with FTD label.
