3.0 out of 5 stars Love Letters...again., 21 Jan 2007
This review is from: Love Letters From Elvis (Audio CD)
This album is considered to be one of the least popular in his seventies' catalogue of work, and when compared to such landmarks as "Elvis Country" and "That's The Way It Is" then this is most probably the case.

However, there are some stand-out performances contained on this album and some favourites include "When I'm Over You", "This Is Our Dance" and "Cindy, Cindy". A number of fans and critics are not too keen on the likes of "Heart of Rome" and "Life" but both these tracks hold quite a bit of charm for me. The presence of full orchestration on most of the tracks doesn't appear to enhance the proceedings, for example the jam medley of "Got My Mojo Working"/"Keep Your Hands Off Of Her" didn't really need the odd burst of brass - but it still remains as one of the album highlights. Why Elvis decided to re-work the title track "Love Letters" is beyond comprehension and I feel with the strings arrangement doesn't even come as close to his 1966 hit recording, which is pure beauty in itself.

Nevertheless, this CD album is still worth a buy just to hear the aforementioned recordings.
