5.0 out of 5 stars First-rate live compilation of the 1970's, 16 July 2007

This review is from: Elvis Live (Audio CD)
This is a first-rate 20-track compilation for anyone wanting to find out what Elvis Presley sounded like live in the last decade of his career. The selection is taken from various live albums and the songs are presented here as belonging to one single concert. The first half of the programme is covered by 1969-70 recordings with outstanding versions of "Johnny B. Goode", "Suspicious Minds" (the best-ever live cut from the 1969 "Elvis in Person" album), "Polk Salad Annie", "The Wonder of You", "You've Lost That Loving Feeling" and "Bridge Over Troubled Water". The second half features the hit single "Burning Love" taken from "Aloha" and the great 1974 live in Memphis rendition of "How Great Thou Art". The disc concludes with the unavoidable "Unchained Melody" from 1977, although they should have added "Can't Help Falling in Love", and why not the now classic 'Elvis has left the building' announcement.

The sound has been upgraded significantly (by Vic Anesini) and the remixed songs have real punch and power, also emphasizing the crack band that worked with Elvis. The general public at whom this CD is aimed won't be bothered by the misprint in the second half of the programme which claims that "You Gave Me A Mountain" and "An American Trilogy" are from 1972, while in fact they were taken from the "Aloha" album from a year later. The 1972 recordings might indeed have been a better choice, but let this not spoil your fun with this great disc, reminding us above all what a fantastic live performer Elvis was. At mid-price this is a real bargain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly the best compilation of Elvis songs..., 6 Nov 2009

This has got to be one of the best and most original compilations of Elvis material. Not hastily packaged together and churned out, like so so many of his CD's just to generate interest and for marketing purposes. It seems like some thought has been put into compiling this CD and it is an absolutely top notch mix of some of Elvis's best songs and performances... and live to boot!!
I have lost track of the amount of times I have listened to this whilst riding on my motorbike. Beats much of todays music hands down, and that's why Elvis Presley has stood the test of time.

The King truly is a legend....

This review is from: Elvis Live (MP3 Download)
A really good album. Downloaded it to my kindle. Really good sound especially through headphones. Always a bit dubious as there are loads of Elvis albums and some of the quality isn't always great on the cheaper ones but this one doesn't disappoint at all . This album also has a good range of music.
