4.0 out of 5 stars EAHWMTBH VOL 6, 15 Jan 2013
This review is from: Elvis Presley As He Was Meant To Be Heard Volume 6 (1962) (Audio CD)
Under the public domain law's many companies took full advantage with Elvis 50s/early 60's recordings, sadly what could have been a chance for creative releases in fact lead to many clueless dogs flooding the market but the "Elvis as he was meant to be heard" series most definately didnt come under the "lets avoid" releases.
Having taken a chance on Vol 2 it was a pleasing suprise to find reprodutions truer to the vinyl releases than what the "offical" custodians were prepared to give.
Then came vol 3,where at last we had great songs such as "i got stung" and " a big hunk of love" restored to their noisy and effective glory.
Vol 4 was a revelatory suprise as the stereo "elvis is back"/related material within sounded good on other releases, but not as good as the inverse label mixes.
Vol 5, was a solid feast which offered some of the early 60s singles as vintage mono mixes.
Vol 6 continues this offering the Follow that dream/Kid Galahad ep's in this vintage format with the latter sounding very punchy and full. If you happen to have the KG ftd cd of this material then you mave have no need for this but i personally find it more fullfilling as a listen to have the said ep's and the Pot Luck lp together on one disc.
The Pot Puck lp songs{in stereo}sound crunchy and full with a natural air ambience more in line with the late 80's releases rather than the uber cleaned up dead reissue that would follow.The new sequencing of the P.L songs maybe a refreshing change for some or a nuisance.
The Good luck charm/Anything thats part of you and Return to sender mono 45's within also sound much more in line with their orignal mixes,a plus for some maybe not others who find stereo mixes the only way to go.
So if you've bought all previous releases in the series and understand the context of offering the customer a more vintage sounding alternative than whats available on the RCA/Sony releases, you can happily add this volume to your music shelf.
The Beatles and Dylan organisations understood these markets exist with their excellent mono sets, perhaps the Elvis label could come up with such regarding his 60s/70's material.

This review is from: Elvis Presley As He Was Meant To Be Heard Volume 6 (1962) (Audio CD)
A must for every Elvis fan who loves '60s Elvis and non-Elvis fans too. A veritable feast of memorable tunes to evoke memories of teenage years and of a voice unsurpassed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Winner, 5 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Elvis Presley As He Was Meant To Be Heard Volume 6 (1962) (Audio CD)
Once again,superior sound is delivered,an in-your-face-experience.The mono tracks are a pure joy,as if Elvis is in the room.The lack of processing makes for a completely different listening experience,one where passion is much more the rule.My only complaint is that DUMB photo used on the cd's cover.It's well known that Elvis was not pleased after a while with the quality of songs and movies he was involved with.But there's no need to pander to that fact,ESPECIALLY when so much of the music on this cd has him sounding very much engaged.

A good compilation but could have done with a bit stronger content, that is why I did not give it 5 stars.
