5.0 out of 5 stars Living Stereo, 13 Jun. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Elvis Is Back (Audio CD)
Argueably Presley's finest album, and his first post army album (1960) - so he was probably trying to prove to his contempories, that he had staying power. Elvis always rose to a challenge, making this album is a real classic! In fact I've read an apt description somewhere calling it "Elvis' most artistically realised album!"
Generally the album as a whole was a departure from what he had been recording previously. His voice is stronger here than on the 50's recordings. His vocal range had improved, is more polished on phrasing and timing, and the atmosphere here is pure hit making. There is much less rock ' n roll here than on previous albums, but lots of blues, some doo-wop ballads, and toe tapping rythims. I think the highlights of this album are "Fever","Such a Night", and "Reconsider Baby".
Elvis is recorded in "Living Stereo", backed by some of the finest Nashville musicians of the time, most notably Homer Boots Randolph, the sax player, and the Jordanaires, his regular vocal backup quartet. BMG have now re-issued the album with additional tracks which were hit singles ("Now or Never")and b-sides ("Mess of Blues") culled from those sessions, with original artwork and liner notes. Absolutely a 5 star album!
