Elvis Sings the Great British Songbook


Elvis Aaron Presley is one of the biggest-selling artists of all-time, but mere numbers cannot begin to explain the colossal cultural impact he had in the mid-20th Century. He was a central figure in the transformation of the grey, conservative 50s into the technicolor 60s through the liberalizing effect of rock and pop music. Frank Sinatra had proved extremely popular in the 40s with young ... Read more in Amazon's Elvis Presley Store

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fitting Tribute 24 July 2004
Format:Audio CD
This BMG's official collection for the 25th anniversary of Elvis' death, and whilst I have seen mixed reviews in both music magazines and on the Internet, in my opinion it's a good set. This compilation spans Elvis recording career from 1954 - 1976 and the majority of it consists of previously unreleased material. There are a couple of acetates and home recordings included, but for the most part the sound quality is excellent.
The 1956 Little Rock recordings have been issued before on both bootleg and budget releases, but I think the sound quality on the new set is slightly better, and would guess that BMG have used a different source tape. The 50's out takes are for the most part good in terms of both performance and sound quality. Some of these are quite close to the masters, but this is probably an indication of the young Elvis striving for perfection in the studio, and they are no less interesting to listen to because of this.
The farm version of "Loving You" features a different arrangement to the master take, and I particularly like the alternate version of "Is It So Strange". Take 2 of "Shake Rattle And Roll" would probably have been my own personal favourite on this disc, had I not already heard a similar arrangement on take 8, (from the '50's box) but I still love that extra verse and piano solo. Disc two is split between Nashville out takes and songs from the soundtrack sessions, and whilst the quality of these songs is a little more varied than the material Elvis cut in the '50's, there are certainly some gems amongst them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just another Elvis release??? 20 Aug 2003
By sp
Format:Audio CD
Yes, but this is tremendous. Starts at the very beginning of his career and brings you through to the very end. There are so many gems in this you must sit down and savour this at your leisure.
Track Today, Tomorrow and Forever shows just how short sighted the Colonel and RCA were - this should have been one of his biggest hits (the sigh at the end says it all - he's loving it).
This CD collection shows how Elvis grew as a singer, just getting better and better from Harbour Lights, King of the Whole Wide World through to A Thing Called Love. You can listen again and again and hear something new.
A lot of people don't like these releases containing outtakes but I love them. They can show the true man, a man with a sense of humour, a man when recording the soundtrack pap just gets on with the job.
This is cracking. Invest in it today, but if you are a true Elvis fan you'll already own it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rare and unusual Elvis 13 Aug 2002
Format:Audio CD
4 Cds containing almost 100 tracks. These are mainly unreleased takes of well known tracks from throughout the career of Elvis. There are some live performances that have not been released before and soundtrack versions form some of the films. The accompanying booklet gives dates and details of all tracks. Some of the versions are somewhat less polished performances than were finally released, but many are at least as good as the previous released versions. The recordings cover his whole carfeer from the 50's up to 1977, and the earliest tracks are in mono.

5.0 out of 5 stars boxing clever! 6 Aug 2002
Format:Audio CD
It's very easy to get all misty eyed over box sets such as last years "Live In Las Vegas" or "Platinum", and yes, these were great compilations, but this latest release tops the lot. Inclusions such as "Love Machine", "Mexico", "I got a feeling in my body", "Wonderful World", "Stay Away" "US Male" (I could go on...) raise the stakes for any future Elvis compilation set. The songs we get offered here (forget the alternate takes, just look at the songs) are off the beaten track. This is great news for those coming to Elvis for the first time off the back of ALLC single as it proves that 'our boy' isn't all Hound Dogs, Teddy Bears and Proud Mary's. It offers a wider view, and of all the box sets, is one that I know I'll come back to more often than, say A Golden Celebration. If I could give it 5+ stars I would. This isn't just hyperbole, Today, Tomorrow & Forever really does deliver.

4.0 out of 5 stars A must for collectors...only 29 Aug 2002
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Alternate takes can sound great because they offer new performances or arrangements (enjoy Ann Margret on the 'Today, Tomorrow, and Forever' track), but there's not many of those amongst this unreleased 100. Several tracks are obviously poorer than the originals too, which makes this CD set for collectors' ears only. Some tracks are recorded on a low-fi home recorder which interrupt the otherwise perfect sound. The 'Follow That Dream' series of single CDs has already included alternate versions of many of these songs - however this 4 CD set is a cheaper buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars An intriguing collection to groove to!! 31 Aug 2002
Format:Audio CD
Most fans take little notice of RCA's claims to "Unreleased versions" as most of them are available in equal quality on Bootlegs. In this case, much of the material truly is unheard.
Sure, there are lots of tracks we hardcore fans are familiar with, but even the re-issued-to-death 1956 Little Rock show is from a more complete tape than before, and the mixing on the previously heard takes is better.
But there's a veritive fest of truly rare cuts, with the title Elvis and Ann Margret duet standing out as a beautiful example. It's a joy to hear alternates of "Peices Of My Life" and "Life", and generally, the final disc is the winner. But the early stuff is well represented with ultra rare outtakes of "Harbor Lights", "Rip It Up", "Treat Me Nice", "Young And Beautiful" and "I Got A Woman" standing out.
The 60s are nicely covered and produce some hidden gems, in the form of production number outtakes from the 68 Special (TROUBLE/GUITAR MAN being notable) and some ace film cuts. The little 1969 live selection is joyous, as is the February 1970 vagas trio which opens disc four.
But when we absorb the beauty of the alternate and dubb free cuts of the likes of "Next Step Is Love", "Where Do I Go From Here", "No More", "Snowbird", "If You Talk In Your Sleep" and "For Loving Me", that's when we realise we have a masterpiece in our hands.
My personal top five highlights of the whole set?
1. Long Legged Girl (With The Short Dress On)
2. Today, Tomorrow And Forever
3. Almost
4. Let Us Pray
5. I'll Be Home On Christmas Day
The latter features a great improvised verse when Elvis cocks up the lyrics.
Buy it while you can - it's the best box set since 1990's COLLECTORS GOLD!!
