I first heard this album in January 1978 on coming home for the weekend from the boarding school I was then attending. I had mentioned to Mum that I was on the lookout for the Elvis in Demand compilation which had been released the previous year and one of her work customers happened to have it. He also let her borrow Today, which Dad recorded along with the In Demand album. I was delighted when the track listing was read to me, to find that Elvis's version of The Green Green Grass of Home was included on it, a single I missed out on when it was out in the UK. However, when I came to listen to the rest of the album, every track was excellent, right from the piano introduction of T R O U B L E, which I later found had only reached 30 or 31 in the UK in May 1975. This album has an excellent country sound and could easily have been called Elvis Country Vol 2. A Woman Without Love, Fairy Tale, I Can Help (originally released by Billy Swan), Susan When She Tried and Pieces of My Life are all excellent tracks. Elvis's version of I Can Help was released at the end of 1983 and promoted an album of his hits from Fool to Way Down, which was excellent for those who had the Hits of the 70s album (which I still have). Without doubt, Today, to me, is his best album of the 70s and I highly recommend it to those wishing to buy it either as a CD or download, as I did.

This is one of the better 70`s albums by Elvis offering a varied collection of songs ranging from rock(TROUBLE) ballads (And i love you so, country (green green grass of home) gospel(Shake a hand)etc. Its an album with alot of great tunes which makes it highly listenable. This two cd set includes the original album with outakes(includes a jam version of Tiger Man) and a second disc with original session mixes which were rejected by Elvis and remixed by Felton Jarvis, his regular producer) Its interesting comparing the different versions.Also on this disc are 6 songs which were worked on by Elvis and his band at 6363 Sunset studios in Hollywood. The packaging is superb, a fold out gatefold sleeve with booklet (the usual high standards from FTD).

This album sends shivers up and down my spine. Here's why: The King was simply at his absolute very best vocally. His delivery is breathtaking and the voice is unbelievable - right from the first note to the last chord of the last track. Ten gold-plated songs filled with awesome power and soaked with pure emotion. He sounds Rock; Country; Rhythm; Blues; Ballad; and Gospel - all in one album!!!

Recording at RCA's Studio C in Los Angeles between 10th and 12th March 1975, the session proved to be the last time Elvis Presley would record in an actual studio. He kicks off with T-R-O-U-B-L-E and you can tell immediately that he means business. This is his heaviest and fastest rock track of the 70's. He just attacks it head on. No one else can deliver with the same aggression. And the 'hiccup' sounds at the end are mesmerising.

AND I LOVE YOU SO comes next and Elvis does true justice to this classic. Just listen to that voice. Suddenly you are a ballads fan! SUSAN WHEN SHE TRIED would have sounded too country but Elvis turns it into a brilliant country-rock piece. It ranks as one of my favourites here. WOMAN WITHOUT LOVE takes you into another world as backing vocals come in very prominently and beautifully here.

The rest of the album is truly superb with notable outstanding tracks such as, well, all of them. Just listen to the phenomenal power of SHAKE A HAND and decide for yourself if this is a blues, rock or gospel - or the emotion-filled PIECES OF MY LIFE. The beautiful FAIRYTALE shows us how country music should sound - Presley style!

Next the Billy Swan number I CAN HELP and you can sense how much Elvis is into it just by that powerhouse ending.

There are few albums i listen to without skipping a track but this one is so good that all you have to do is sit back and listen. Vocally Presley is fantastic - from songs such as the fast T-R-O-U-B-L-E or the slow Pieces Of My Life, he carries it off superbly. I think this version of Green, Green Grass Of Home not only matches but betters Tom Jones' version. With much more emotion and strength in his voice. I can see that maybe it wasnt the right choice of songs for the average music fan in 1975. But for Elvis fans i fail to see how its been so overlooked.

A fabulous release from the 'Follow That Dream' Label for Elvis Collectors. A most underrated classic album when first released by RCA in 1975 and the rockin' hit single taken from it "T-R-O-U-B-L-E" should have achieved a much higher chart placing than what it received.

"Elvis Today" should be up there and talked about in the same breath and context as other classic seventies Elvis albums such as "Elvis Country", "That's The Way It Is", "As Recorded at Madison Square Garden", "Aloha From Hawaii" and "Live on Stage In Memphis 1974".

There's a great mix of rock, country, r&b and ballads with such great studio performances as "And I Love You So", "Shake A Hand", "Susan When She Tried", "Pieces of My Life" and "I Can Help". This 2-CD release is a great addition to any fans collection because included on the second disc are the original session mixes of all the songs on the album - the way it was intended to release them before EP had a change of heart in favour of overdubbing all the tracks.

Nevertheless, whether you are a fan of the original album or the original session mixes of the album you are guaranteed an enjoyable listen as 'The King' works his way through some of his final best studio performances of his career. There are some out-takes included here too which boost the value for money rating of this FTD release.

A Good Purchase!
