3.0 out of 5 stars A strange One!, 12 Sept. 2013
This review is from: Elvis Unplugged : Versions You Have Never Heard! (Audio CD)
Elvis unplugged. Well not exactly. The disc consists of 10 tracks where the musical accompaniment has been turned down low and another 10 tracks where Elvis' vocal has been virtually (but not quite) redacted. What you get is a chance to hear Elvis' vocals 1960-62 recordings in a rather pure form. In fact they do sound very fresh and of course he was indeed in superb vocal control in the early 60's. The instrumental 10 tracks are far less interesting and although they may well be suitable for Karioke buffs really it would have been a better cd had we had 20 tracks of pure Elvis vocals. Also without a lyric sheet (and there's no sleeve notes to speak of) who in truth could sing the entire Night Rider (for example) without a crib sheet! What is also interesting is that the inside sleeve note which is the tape details from the Flaming Star sessions in 1960 seems to indicate an attempt to record "All in the Game". Of course Cliff went on to do a nice version of this number. So overall not bad but hardly essential.
