This 32-track, double CD set--a companion to a television special--compiles the King's "most emotionally affecting tunes," songs he connected to his real-life romance with his wife and daughter. Most notable here is the second disc, a collection of rarities, beginning with "It Wouldn't Be the Same Without You," one of the four known demos Presley recorded before winning his Sun contract. His tone here--pure and almost girlish--is the sweet sound of a boy who would be Dean Martin, not a revolution in the making. Private recordings of "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" and "Baby What You Want Me to Do" are so "living room" as to seem deliciously voyeuristic. But the most fascinating glimpse here comes as an alternate take of "You'll Be Gone," a song Presley wrote in 1962 with friends Red West and Charlie Hodge. Utterly awful, it finds him meandering into the squishy no man's land that characterized much of the period. He played it for the visiting Priscilla, who said she liked his rock 'n' roll stuff better, and, crushed, he supposedly never tried to write a song again. That was history's loss, but Priscilla ended up being a better A&R director than anybody else Elvis had around him at the time. And not a bad album packager it turns out. It also includes "rare, never-before-seen family photos". --Alanna Nash

By A Customer on 5 May 2005
Format: Audio CD
Now I would consider myself as one Elvis' biggest fans, buying virtually every CD whether or not I have all the songs. But this latest mainstream release is starting to make me feel a little bit deflated. Disc one is very uninspired, 4 of the songs were on the last CD (Love,Elvis-which itself represented another predictable effort) being only released a couple of months ago. This CD was supposed to represent moments in Elvis' life (according to the liner notes)and is categorised. The first track for instance is "Trying To Get To You" a studio take, but is under the category "On Stage". "A Little Less Conversation" gets another encore. With the latest single release, this is about the 4th time this song has cropped up since it's World Cup debut in 2002, that does not include the "30 No.1 Hits (Special Edition)" in 2003 with both the standard and extended versions on it or the "30 No.1 Hits" DVD.
My interest though was in Disc 2, which has the rare and unreleased recordings. Unfortunately, it seems that it was put together in a hurry and doesn't have any kind of direction. It runs for just over 20 minutes and has just 8 tracks, 3 which have been released before. The unreleased portion of the CD is very good including a private recording of "Baby What You Want Me To Do" and "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" which ironically was recorded at Linda Thompsons House.
To conclude, if this was a school report, it would read "Could Do Better"
