5.0 out of 5 stars The King of Country, 15 May 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Great Country Songs (Audio CD)
This cracking CD focuses on some of Elvis' country music. Covering a lot of the country music that he recorded, this is definately one of the finest Elvis Cds available.
Many of the songs will be familiar, and have been released before. But the half-dozen alternate takes make this a very worthy purchase.
The selling point here is a stunning alternate take of Kris Krisstofferson's "Help Me Make It Through The Night" that betters Elvis' master take from the "Elvis Now" album.
The "Guitar Man" remake/remix from 1980 is here also, plus almost every track being utterly sensational, especially the final studio track that Elvis ever cut, "He'll Have To Go", you know, the Jim Reeves song. What Elvis does with this country standard is sensational, as he moulds it into a long, slow blues with especially excellent guitar work from James Burton.
Like I said, this is a tremendous CD, especially if you like country music. Hopefully a similar CD of blues will be released soon.

well said .people seem to forget that elvis started out as a country/hillbilly artist and not an out and out rocker. this a really good album.lotsof classic country/hillbilly/ rock tracks.i'm glad it's been released it shows how good the early and later elvis really was. highly recommended listening.
