It's such a pity that these "home recordings" were not captured on proffesional equipment. This "fly on the wall" glimpse of Elvis is fascinating, with some real gems, that are sadly only available in this way.
"Mona Lisa" is stunningly good, and exquisitely sung, as is "If I Loved You", from the musical "Carousel." This is simply Elvis alone on piano, giving a superlative reading of ths great song.
This would probably appeal more to huge fans of the King; the casual observer won't find it so interesting.

This CD gives you an idea what kind of music Elvis loved to perform in private. His love of gospel music and close harmony comes very clear in this collection. Basically this is a record for collectors and fans only. If you're only an casual Elvis-fan you probably won't get much out of it. The sound quality, althought very good indeed for an amateur recording, is not equal to a studio sound. These recordings weren't ever meant for commercial release. They were meant for Elvis' own pleasure and for him to practice future recordings. For an Elvis-fan is a great thrill to hear several new songs. It's like being invited to be a fly on the wall in Elvis' living room.

This CD gives an insight into Elvi's world from a different perspective. The man was a genius. In England there are a lot of people who say Elvis was not a country singer. Elvis was a singer who rolled numerous genres of music into his own style. This CD proves that Elvis was the most natural instinctive country music singer ever. He will never be surpassed in my lifetime. GREAT CD. Mike Wright.
