Top Customer Reviews
The songs on this album are fantastic and the album is so well structured it all flows together perfectly.
With the inclusion of classics such as 'If I Can Dream' and 'Promised Land' there is the perfect mix of gospel, blues and rock 'n roll which Elvis has built his legacy upon.
The whole album has been digitally remastered which is why you'll have never heard Elvis so good. The quality is outstanding and his songs are timeless. Even though some of the songs are quite short for todays standards, such as 'I Need Your Love Tonight' and 'Rock-A-Hula Baby' are only around 2 minutes long, you'll listen to them again and again, and since I got the album in Christmas 2004, it hasn't been out of my CD Case once.
If like me, you've suddenly got interested in Elvis' music and would like a compliation of his music then in my opinion, although '30 #1 Hits' would normally be reccommended, this is the album of his best songs.
I have other Elvis compilations, but think this was worth it. It will go on my well played list.
So what's left? All familiar, albeit terrific sounding tracks. My only complaint is with selecting "A Mess Of Blues", "Rock-a Hula Baby", and "You Don't Have To Say You Love Me" for a collection which should feature Elvis at his best. These three are pleasant enough, but imagine what "Youll Never Walk Alone", "Like A Baby", or That's Someone You Never Forget" could have meant?
I didn't know this second album existed before I saw the first one advertised here on Amazon. You can't have one without the other, as one old song says!
I gurantee, if you enjoyed 30 #1 Hits you will love this album!
I look forward to another album in the near future, maybe with a bronze cover?
The King Is Back!
The two standout tracks from the norm being the 2003 remix Rubberneckin and the unreleased second version of the song titled I'm a routabout.
I'm a routabout is a different song to the one released within Elvis's movie of the same title, as Hal Wallis rejected this version and ordered a different song of the same title to be written.
The song is bouncy emough to enjoy although not hit material in itself when It was recorded, as Elvis and the Colonel obviously didn't think worth pursuing at the time or later regardless of Hal Wallis's thinking on the song.
Most people will like this track though.
The remix of Rubberneckin is curious. On the one hand the song itself is weak and no matter who remixed this (Paul Oaakenfold)It was never going to be another A little less conversation (ALLC) smash hit. On the other hand, the remix itself I consider to be better technically than ALLC as It sounds more natural with vocal and music blending better than ALLC. The song though is not strong enough to repeat summer sales of his 2002 remix.
The rest of the album reads like many an Elvis compilation of the last two and a half decades with old classics and fans favourites on there.
Some of the highlights which non fans as well as fans may enjoy are Loving You, I need your love tonight, bossa Nova Baby (potential remix material this one?), always on my mind, promised land, moody blue.Read more ›
