5.0 out of 5 stars Some of Elvis Best Material, 18 Nov. 2006
This review is from: Today (Audio CD)
What a great offering this is! Two mixes of the same material on two seperate discs. Was subsequent tinkering of already excellent performances(at the instigation of no less than the Man himself!) uneccesary? Was it worth degrading the sound quality of the original for a re-dubbed base line, overdubbed strings and extra guitar parts? You can be the judge.

Having read other reviews before buying I went straight to disc 1 which contains the overdubs and a re-mix of the original session mixes and it wasn't quite as bad as I had been led to expect. But what a pleasing contrast the recordings on disc 2 were. The sparser original mixes had Elvis vocals more prominent, stunning instrumental clarity and solid bass and drum lines.

So my recommendation is definitely buy it and thoroughly enjoy the small group' sound on disc 2 containing the original session mixes, '6363 sunnset' material and the outakes on disc 1.
