By J. Skade VINE VOICE on 10 Jan. 2003
Format: Audio CD
This cd comes within a whisker of being 'essential' and it is certainly very highly recommended. A collection of singles, b-sides and soundtrack album 'bonus tracks'recorded between 1966 and 1968 they show the real Elvis, too often submerged beneath a pile of soundtrack garbage,trying to rebuild a musical career.
The disc kicks off with a fine version of Chuck Berry's 'Too Much Monkey Business' followed by 'Guitar Man', one of Elvis' best performances but it is on the third track that the cd reaches it's peak with the title song written by Bob Dylan , a beautiful,delicate vocal performance against a sparse backing - this recording is almost supernatural in it's beauty. The jokey 'US Male' relieves the tension a little before another superb interpretation - this time of Ketty Lester's 'Love Letters'. Not quite up to the original, but still better than anything Elvis had done in years.
From this point on the cd loses focus a little with a mixed bag of styles and a variation in quality. 'Indescribably Blue' a big ballad with a neapolitan twist boasts a finely judged vocal performance but is not quite my cup of tea. 'Down In The Valley' on the other hand is one of the bluesiest things Elvis ever recorded and is a highlight of this collection. 'Come What May' and 'Mine' are pleasant but a little weak whilst 'Just Call Me Lonesome' is a fine country track. 'Singing Tree' is rather strange veering between Roy Orbison and Marty Robbins it features Elvis duetting with himself - silly but hard to dislike.
The cd ends with 'I'll Remember You' a gentle touching ballad worthy of the collection.
Far better than 'For The Asking'. Buy this while stocks last.

The songs on this CD were recorded between 1967 and 1968 at a time when Elvis was more involved in his acting career.
But by May 66 Elvis returned to the studio to cut his first non-soundtrack album since Pot Luck in 62.
The album was to be a new gospel record, How Great Thou Art; which went on to be top 20 in America and Britain, going double paltinum in the states.
Whilst recording this album Elvis relished the chance to dig into some raw gutsy rythm and blues, in Down in the Alley.
He also took a stab at Kitty Lester's classic Love Letters, whilst Fools Fall In Love was a brass driven rock n roller. But the standout was the hypnotic, sensational version of Bob Dylan's Tomorrow Is A Long Time. At almost 6 minutes long, this is a masterpiece and is without a doubt one of the best performances of his career......he should have recorded an album of Dylan songs.
A month later the King would again record some new material: Ill Remember You and Indescribably Blue are songs of tremendous passion, and sung in a way that captivates the listener.
This would be his last studio sessions, except for movie soundtracks, till September 67.
One song (Suppose) was recorded in March, but the new songs recorded here prove, along with the How Great Thou Art sessions that Elvis mastery and artistry was always well in tact, even during the times that poor movie tracks dominated his studio output.
The September sessions produced the superb country rock Big Bossman, a rockin' Hi Heel Sneekers and the classic Guitar Man.
Ray Charles You Dont Know Me is given outstanding treatment, with all concerned excelling.
Two more songs were recorded in January 68, the tremendous Too Much Monkey Business, this is a great song from the pen of Chuck Berry; bettered by Elvis.

This album is terrific, It really shows how Elvis managed to turn over some classic tracks, despite being forced to cut those awful, awful soundtrack songs. Forgotten songs like 'Indescribably Blue', 'US Male' 'Down in the Alley' and the title track, which were bundled onto dodgy compilation albums of the time are reborn on this album, along with other classics cut over a two year period in the Nashville I said..this album is 22 years too late, but it's nice to have it at last.

Elvis fans who experienced the Sixties will recall the relief that the occasional non-movie single brought. This CD brings together such gems from the mid-Sixties, tracks like Guitar Man, Love Letters, and You Don't Know Me, along with their `B-sides' and other tracks that had been released as filler material on a movie album. And what fantastic filler material it was! The album concerned, `California Holiday' (called Spinout in the USA) gave us the title track of this collection and `I'll Remember You' and the fantastic `Down in the Alley' (from which I lifted the title for this review).

A leaflet-insert is provided. It gives an overview of the recording sessions involved in the production of these tracks and puts them in the context of Elvis's career. For example, the raunchy `Down in the Alley', mentioned above, was an incongruous addition to the `How Great Thou Art' gospel album sessions. (Note: There appears to be a layout error whereby the first paragraph on the second page of the leaflet should be moved to the end of the text, on the fifth page.)

This collection shows that Elvis, for the most part, when striking out for his art had to resort (at this time) to covering other artists' work, so poor were the original songs offered to him. However, the results mostly withstand the test of time, even though they did not achieve the success they deserved, so low was Elvis's profile just prior to the '68 Comeback Special. However, it must be admitted that both `Fools Fall in Love' and `Come What May' had a dated feel when they were originally released as B-sides.

`Singing Tree', `Mine' and `Going Home' are new to my collection. The first of these has a somewhat `hippy meets Rock' flavour to it, perhaps fitting to the Flower-power era.
