5.0 out of 5 stars GOOD GOLLY, 13 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Re:Born (Deluxe Edition) (Audio CD)
Purchased along with three other volumes, I hesitated for a long time before sending for these remix albums. And my heart was pounding with dread as I slotted the first disc into my player. The first few seconds were filled with natural and instinctive resentment towards anything or anyone tampering with Elvis Presley's music, but then, my hand reached for the volume control and I found myself raising the volume rather than lowering it or even switching it off altogether. Then, I raised the volume again, and again, and then again!

Wait a minute now. This could not have been possible. Not from a diehard Elvis fan like me. No way!

But yes, I discovered that not only do I like these remixes, I love 'em!! Why? Because they sound like Elvis recorded them today. And because so much respect has gone towards these Elvis tracks. The remix artists who waved their magic wand over the old tracks that had been giving joy to the world for decades are obviously big Presley fans and knew what they were doing. We may not prefer these over the original gems but boy do they sound good too. And here's the trick - they still sound E L V I S.

There is so much new energy on these new remixes from mainly added drum and bass sounds that accentuate the power that emanated from the original tracks. And each track is mixed individually to suit the song itself. Whereas you would not hear the original recordings in today's night clubs or dance gigs but they are playing these remixes. And that's what it's all about - they are still listening to Elvis Presley!

There are three more volumes, each with a different name and a different album colour. And with the exception of one or two odd tracks, all the songs on the four volumes are great. I recommend you give them a listen with an open mind and judge for yourself.

The remixed tracks you'll find on this particular album are:

GONNA GET BACK HOME SOMEHOW
RETURN TO SENDER
GOOD LUCK CHARM
FOLLOW THAT DREAM
KISS ME QUICK
SHE'S NOT YOU
JUST TELL HER JIM SAID HELLO
I LOVE YOU BEACAUSE
I SILIPPED I STUMBLED I FELL
(SUCH AN) EASY QUESTION
