5.0 out of 5 stars I Was All Shook Up!!, 1 Nov 2003
This review is from: Elvis: 30 #1 Hits [Special Edition] (2CD) (Audio CD)
Being a young fan of rock 'n' roll, I'm ecstatic that they're re-releasing the ELV1S album with a bonus disk. Fankyavurymuch!!!
In the same way that the Beatles' 'Anthology' series highlighted their brilliance with various unheard takes on their most famous songs, the bonus disk of this deluxe edition shows a side to the great man that many of us have never heard. The rehearsals of 'Heartbreak Hotel' and 'In The Ghetto' trully show what a immense talent Mr Presley was. His vocals haunt through the takes like the ghost of rock 'n' roll, but amazingly the quality of the bonus disk is brilliant considering these sound clips were recorded on basic equipment. Anyone who thinks Elvis was just a hillbilly American who was just in the right place at the right time - THINK AGAIN!! He was a one-off, a true legend, with a voice that could be both energetic and heartwarming. The slower songs on the bonus disk, like 'Way Down', demonstrate his brilliance.
And as for the first disk, do I need to say any more? 'Hound Dog', 'Jailhouse Rock', 'Are You Lonesome Tonight?', 'Suspicious Minds'..............
This is a must for any fan of Elvis, rock 'n' roll, or just dectn music. If you have the original compilation album, dispose of it this instant and buy this. It's Now Or Never....
