3.0 out of 5 stars Only for the fanatic fan
This is a good quality CD and well worth a listen if you are a diehard fan, but it could be a bit repetitious if you aren't. The movie versions and the alternate versions of the songs are both good, but not needed for anyone but the real purist amongst Elvis fans. A bit too much for the casual listener (my wife) who kept saying "he's just sang this one a minute ago", so...

An epic album by Elvis Presley with many bonus tracks as the film didn't have that many numbers in it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dancin' To The Jailhouse Rock!, 8 Feb. 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Jailhouse Rock (Audio CD)
Jailhouse Rock is the definitive rock n roll movie, and at last 40 years later an album is finally released.
The song Jailhouse Rock was groundbreaking in its rawness and really took rock n roll to new places.
The film was released in 1957, and the EP Jailhouse Rock was a massive seller; almost 2 million copies sold in America alone, this was an unpresidented amount as it sat atop the EP chart for 28 weeks.
The single Jailhouse Rock sold close to 3 million in America, was #1 on Billboard for 6 weeks whilst also topping the country and r&b charts.
In Britain Jailhouse Rock was the first single ever to go straight to #1, in fact Elvis had the first 2 songs ever to debut at #1 in Britain, he done it again with Its Now Or Never in 1960.
Without promotion this CD has reached platinum statues in America, its a fantastic CD, buy this and the movie

3.0 out of 5 stars With regards to the vinyl edition...., 20 Feb. 2009
... this is an interesting release that I came across. Sadly no picture appears here, but the album is a re-issue of the Jailhouse Rock soundtrack with original versions and various bonus tracks and outtakes. As a bonus there is a 7" 33rpm bonus ep (dressed up as an original, but how original it would be is dubious) The ep is a nice piece of vinyl with 50s styled sleeve and the Black and silver RCA label. The main LP is a little disappointing with a photo label, though there is a good accompanying 12" booklet. I know that there are 3 other LPs in this series (Lovin' You, GI Blues and Blue Hawaii), however as my love of Elvis films doesn't stretch much beyond Jailhouse Rock, I have only purchased Lovin' You (which has a good tracklisting) and follows the same format of LP with picture label and a pseudo ep.

An average rating as this is a really good idea whose execution leaves a little to be desired.

As an aside, the Elvis back catalogue is a messy tortuous web with a myriad of compilations that makes it near impossible to discern what Elvis did in any sort of sequence. Perhaps one day a proper vinyl retrospective will be produced.
