Elvis Presley Fame and Fortune Lost in the sixties,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lost In The 60's: Fame & Fortune [NEW VERSION] (Audio CD)
Elvis was a true professional and perfectionist in the recording studio and it was a fact that he only wanted the very best quality and sound recordings released and it was reported at the time he did 30 tacks of Hound Dog back in 1956 before he thought it was right and perfect for a record release and that why this brilliant recording has stood the test of time and still sounds great 56 years on.
Alas we do not have Elvis and i feel sure he would not like any material he rejected at the time to now be offered for sale as on this album and the 60s Kiss me Quick release the only real good tracks are the Masters that have already been released and most of the rejected tracks have hiss and not top quality sound and many of the false starts on the now released items are some what of a frustration to listern to,so regrettable i would say forget these two albums and buy the best and Elvis's choice of releases.

True Elvis fans want everything. I have the complete collection of FTD (Follow That Dream albums) there are very few originals on the ftd but to own the full set to date would cost you thousands. That's what beeing a True Elvis fan means. If you just like Elvis and some of his music. Then you would not understand

A very good point John. It's often over-looked that EP might just have had a lot of artistic integrity concerning his output, and he might not be best pleased with the dredging industry that has built up around him. The flip side to this argument is that due to his extraordinary talent, historical and cultural significance, image/personality, and lastly the fact he tragically died, moves him beyond what most artists represent. In many ways it's almost impossible to think that anything that is lying around with an Elvis connection can remain unreleased - it simply has to be acknowledged. A bit like a rough 1st draft of a Kennedy speech or scribbled map that just happened to be penned by Picasso. You either like these sort of releases or you sit baffled as another false start falls out of your speakers. I suppose one either has lots of these in their collection or just the one - the one standing as a metaphor for 'not really my thing, never again'. I'm undecided and consequently buy another occasionally (and then wonder now and then about why I got it).
