it happened at the worlds fair,
This review is from: It Happened at the World's Fair (Audio CD)
Some of the other reviews make me laugh this is not Elvis at his best and 'how would you like to be' is a load of rubbish who ever gave this to Elvis to sing should have been shot.This album is average no stand out songs I'm not saying that they are all bad , just normal the best was released as a single and had this been released a year ago it may have got in the top 5 but Elvis had been at the top for 7 years and music was about to change a new geration had grown up.If you are a fan of movie soundtracks you will like this if not you will find just about ok.If you want proof compare this to 'Elvis is back' Something for everybody' or 'POt luck', these were albums of quality, this is not, but you have to add it to your collection (just to compleat your collection ) even if its just to hear how bad 'how would you like to be ' really is.I like to be fair in my reviews I understand just because I dont like (or like) something that its just a personal opinion, in other words if I dont like a song /album it does't mean its bad or visa-versa. Several people have given this album 5 stars, well i'm sorry ,it is not in the class of other great Elvis albums, it deserves 2½ stars 3 at best but not five.The songs while not bad are not good either thats a fact as well as an opinion.

Well, in my equally worthless opinion, I say you're wrong. And I might not be alone either: some 20 years ago Rolling Stone magazine said of THIS particular record that it was "..one of the very best of his early '60's efforts...." and gave it a 4 star rating. I think the soundtracks have to be viewed (listened?) in the context of the film to which they belong. I really like this record and yes, it isn't as good as Elvis Is Back but it IS much better than you are suggesting.
