Top Customer Reviews
"Moody Blue/She Thinks I Still Care" was a previously published hit single recorded at the earlier Graceland session and held over for this album. "Way Down/Pledging My Love" became a big hit after Elvis' death less than one month after this album's release.
The remaining eight tracks from the February 1976 Graceland session are to be found on the exquisite From Elvis Presley Boulevard Memphis Tennessee.
A distinct lack of studio material in 1977 left RCA with little choice other than to augment the six available Graceland session tracks with three live songs recorded in Ann Arbor, Michigan, during April 1977, all of which had to to be heavily overdubbed for commercial release. The three live tracks used are "Unchained Melody", "Little Darlin'" and "If You Love Me (Let Me Know)". To complete the album a live performance of "Let Me Be There" which had already been released in 1974 on Elvis Recorded Live On Stage In Memphis was resurrected with extra overdubbing thrown in for good measure.
As it stands the Moody Blue album is of variable quality but when it's good it's very good. The six Graceland recordings are all excellently delivered by Elvis and the arrangements and production are both top notch.Read more ›
Elvis explores every nuance in the much covered 'Unchained Melody'. As he sings from his heart you can feel the "hunger for her touch" and "the long lonely time". His live version on the CBS Show recorded just two months before his death is even greater. 'Unchained Melody' is also used to great effect in the 'Elvis Movie' starring Kurt Russell.
Next up is a live version of the country track, 'If you love me let me know' and the reaction of the fans leaves Elvis in no doubt!
'Little Darlin' is a 'throw away' nostalgic look back to the 50s and 'He'll have to go' is not a patch on the Jim Reeves original. However, these two are the only mediocre tracks on the album.
Nobody else is likely to be able to match the country classic 'Let me be there' with Elvis delivering such a rousing, glorious version here.
'Way Down' will always be synonymous with the passing of Presley - it soared to number one in the UK. There is great irony as Elvis sings, "The medicine within me, No doctor could prescribe," with prescription drugs being such a major cause of his downfall.
With the excellent title track and moving ballads such as 'She thinks that I still care', Moody Blue has enough evidence to show why we 'still care' for Presley 30 years after his untimely and tragic passing.
The tracks consist of the rest of the recordings from his Graceland '76 Jungle room sessions as well as a couple of live recordings from on tour '77 and a previously released live recording from the classic 'Live on Stage in Memphis' album from '74.
The final song Elvis ever recorded in the studio is featured on this album - "He'll Have To Go"...and EP, along with lead guitarist James Burton, gives it a nice bluesy treatment. The hit singles "Way Down" and the title track are on here, and both these songs highlight Elvis' return to Rock & Pop form. "Pledging My Love" is fabulous to hear with James Burton at the helm once again. It's great to hear Elvis at the piano and hitting the high notes on his concert version of "Unchained Melody" albeit in overdubbed state. Another big ballad in the form of "It's Easy For You" rounds out the album to make this one a popular choice amongst fans.
