Conscripted into the American Army in March 1958 and discharged two years later, Sergeant Presley was a mere 18 days back in the USA when RCA practically frog marched him into their Nashville Studios to cut some new material for a highly expectant public. So it's perhaps strange now in hindsight to think that 1960's "Elvis Is Back!" - his most beloved of studio albums - only went to Number 2 on release. But I can assure you that there is nothing second-place about this 50th Anniversary reissue. It's a gem. Here are the details...
Released 8 March 2011 in the USA (28 February in the UK) - RCA/Legacy 88697 85300 2 contains 2 whole albums and 12 x 7" single-sides (5 of which reached Number 1).
Its 36 STEREO tracks break down as follows:
Disc 1 (50:43 minutes):
1. Make Me Know It
3. The Girl Of My Best Friend
4. I Will Be Home Again
5. Dirty, Dirty Feeling
6. Soldier Boy [Side 2]
7. Such A Night
8. It Feels So Right

Admittedly, if you've already bought the single CDs of these two albums, you may not really want to invest in this, as apart from a brand new booklet, there is nothing in the way of session outtakes or unreleased masters included. However, what this set does deliver is a compact snapshot of Elvis Presley at the top of his game, which might also encourage you to take a closer appreciation of the SOMETHING FOR EVERYBODY album, which I personally have overlooked in the past.
ELVIS IS BACK!, Presley's first album released after his army discharge, is a recognised classic, within which he tackled a bewildering array of material with disarming ease. From the upbeat 'Make Me Know It'; through to the slinky, sultry 'Fever'; and on to the suggestive 'Such A Night'; before closing out with the bluesy 'Reconsider Baby', Presley covered all the bases. Even the single B-sides 'Fame And Fortune', 'A Mess Of Blues' and the jaunty 'I Gotta Know' were far from throwaways, providing beautifully contrasting accompaniments to 'Stuck On You', 'It's Now Or Never' and 'Are You Lonesome Tonight?' respectively. Arguably, perhaps not until the Memphis sessions in early 1969, would Presley ever have quite such a productive and thoroughly rewarding time in the studio.Read more ›
What it isn't is a rock'n'roll album. The most out and out rocker on it, "Dirty, Dirty Feeling" is good but lightweight. The track that actually rocks the most in the set is "Such a Night" originally recorded by the Clyde McPhatter version of the Drifters. Elvis takes this song and pretty well wrings its neck with a scorching latin version that doesn't take prisoners. Elsewhere we have the opener, "Make me Know It", which is reminiscent of some of the Sun Carl Mann tracks - pop more than rock but oodles of charm - plus "The Girl Next Door Went A'Walking" which is also poppy with a hint of rock.
No, it's abundantly clear that the powers that be, and whether that was Colonel Parker or the RCA bigwigs we may never know, had decided that the route forward was via mainstream pop. That said there were some delightful exceptions to this approach in the shape of two slow and very deliberate blues, Jesse Stone's "Like a Baby" and Lowell Fulson's classic, "Reconsider Baby" plus a third track, "It Feels So Right" which was also imbued with a hefty blues feel slightly softened by the presence of the Jordanaires.Read more ›

Such a brilliant album, but the budget 'Hallmark' release should be avoided. The CD has obviously been mastered from a poor quality source file, making it very quiet and flat... Read morePublished 6 months ago by Paul
