4.0 out of 5 stars A soundtrack far superior than the movie itself
A great album, a wonderful listening experience from the Spinout soundtrack with fresh and memorable tunes. The title song itself stands a solid rocker but further up stands the song "Never say yes". A wonderful song that plays great and is even more enjoyable when heard on its out-take forms.
Surely, all the songs never fail to please, especially the two ballads...

3.0 out of 5 stars Presentable Mid 60s Soundtrack
Things turned around for Elvis in summer of '66, not only did Elvis return to the studio to record 'proper' material, but Elvis started to put more into his work again. This album and the similar "Double Trouble" really marked the end of his lazy mid 60s low point.
Quite an upbeat album, it features a strangely out of breath Elvis, and horrible tinny sound to the...

4.0 out of 5 stars A soundtrack far superior than the movie itself, 15 July 2004

This review is from: Spinout (Audio CD)
A great album, a wonderful listening experience from the Spinout soundtrack with fresh and memorable tunes. The title song itself stands a solid rocker but further up stands the song "Never say yes". A wonderful song that plays great and is even more enjoyable when heard on its out-take forms.
Surely, all the songs never fail to please, especially the two ballads "All that I am" and "Am I ready?". Do treat yourself to the out-take of the second ballad and you will find it fuller and, even it is hard to admit, better than the original take at many levels.
The surprise of the album is the out-take of "Beach shack" which presents us with an Elvis Presley in great fun mood that makes the most of a moment. Overall, this edition is full of great out-take segments which rate as the most insightful and enjoyfull ones found in comparison to the other previous soundtrack album sets.
Please note though that some out-takes at some points do not present the best sound in stereo, one would guess due to the poor condition of the material in general.

This review is from: Spinout (Audio CD)
Things turned around for Elvis in summer of '66, not only did Elvis return to the studio to record 'proper' material, but Elvis started to put more into his work again. This album and the similar "Double Trouble" really marked the end of his lazy mid 60s low point.
Quite an upbeat album, it features a strangely out of breath Elvis, and horrible tinny sound to the recordings. Thankfully it lacks the usual horrible kid friendly effort, which makes it a better listen than many. Of cause "Never Say yes" and "Stop Look And Listen" are poor, "Am I Ready" is dull and "Beach Shack" is not great.
However there are some fun to be had. "Smorgasbord" and "Adam And Evil" have quite a bit of life, "All That I Am" is quite a high class ballad, and both "Spinout" and "I'll Be Back" are rather good.
So a 2 star album that's saved with the inclusion of some studio recordings from around this time, "Down In The Alley" is a presentable r'n'b effort, while the country road song "Tomorrow Is A Long Time" and the tender ballad "I'll Remember You" are noting less than fantastic. Chalk and Cheese.
The outtakes offer little musically, but are as good fun as usual.

4.0 out of 5 stars Spin-it-out!, 24 Feb. 2007

This review is from: Spinout (Audio CD)
I've always regarded this as Elvis' best movie soundtrack of the mid-sixties, and I love the grooviness of it!

From the classic title track and the lovely ballads such as 'Am I Ready' and 'All That I Am' to the great rock numbers 'Never Say Yes' and 'I'll Be Back' there appears to be something for everybody in this package. Plus don't forget the silly numbers (every Elvis movie has them!) 'Beach Shack' and 'Smorgasbord' and it still turns out to be an unexpected enjoyable mid-60's Elvis listening experience. But, the icing on the cake on this ablum are the brilliant bonus songs 'Tomorrow Is A Long Time' (the Dylan classic), 'Down In The Alley' and the beautiful 'I'll Remember You'. I cannot find the words to describe my emotions for these 3 gems - you will just have to buy the album for the total experience!
