5.0 out of 5 stars Su Pres & El Boyle, 21 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: O Come, All Ye Faithfull (Audio CD)
A Strange choice of song to cover but it does work well. Radio wont lap it up though. All money to Save The Children. Fans of Elvis will say this is sacrilege. Get the cd while you can it may come collectible.. and it may not.

Well speaking as an Elvis fan this isn't exactly a new concept. A few years ago we had a whole album of Elvis' Christmas songs in which female 'duets' were edited into the mix. Not exactly a favourite album of mine. Why would I want to hear them when I can listen to Elvis' own recordings of them? An artist of his standing doesn't need these additions - though it seems that the powers that be are all for making money, and therefore think that the fans of the other females would buy it for their contribution, not to mention the Elvis fans who'll buy anything that's issued.

If it has one merit then it's the charity aspect - and Elvis gave millions to many charities without a big fanfare to advertise the fact. In fact, he never wrote off any of his charitable donations as tax deductible, which is a cynical moneymaking ploy employed by others. When asked why he didn't use this ploy to pay less tax, he said 'well it's for charity so that's where the money should go'. What a pity the Elvis haters (who get their 'facts' from sensationalist media rags) can only use the same jaded stereotype to insult a supremely talented individual who changed not only popular music but popular culture far more than they'll ever know. Though he was his own worst enemy at times, he at least treated others with kindness, generosity and decency.
