Follow That Dream For The Collectors,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Follow That Dream (Audio CD)
The RCA subsidiary Follow That Dream took the name from this upbeat Elvis musical comedy. Here they have re-issued and re-packaged the legendary EP from the movie. The entire series of re-issues from RCA have been generally very good indeed. This is no exception, it packages together nicely all the movie songs and plenty of alternate takes.
Its nice to have the alternate takes in true living stereo, they sound so fresh and new. The original movie songs or final masters however only appear in MONO, as was the case when they were issued in 1990 on the Double Features CD. I presume no stereo ones exist?
As for the material for this film, generally the standards were still quite high in 1961. Although "Im not the marrying kind" and "Sound advice" could hardly be described as Elvis at his best. Some weak material aside, overall this is a welcome addition to the collection and I would recommend it to Elvis collectors.
