A strange one this. It largely duplicates "the best" of what is already out on the Cafe Europa Box set but adds an extra 7 tracks which are the "movie" versions of Frankfurt Special, Pocketfull of Rainbows etc. In fact these 7 tracks are really rather nice and I would have to concede that they are worth forking out £7 for them even if you have the Europa Box. It's stange though that the Memphis Recording Service boys have also included 5 "masters" on an album that is sold as "alternate". Finally there is a rather cute picture of Juliette Prowse bending over on the cover and I do take back what I said about her in my Cafe Europa review. Nice pic of Elvis too on the cover but no sleeve notes to speak of.

If you are a fan of Elvis or a fan of the movie, this is the CD for you. It has some very good alternative versions that are better than the movie release versions, which are found on the original GI blues albums. I really prefer the outtake versions especially when you can here Elvis making comments on the takes, you feel so connected and part of the take ... one of the Elvis's best Movie CD's in my opinion.

Yes it's nice to have a collectible item in the vintage style with a pretty packaging, but the sound source could be better

Fabulous CD! One of my favourite Elvis movies, and one of my favourite soundtracks. It's great to hear all the outtakes. I'd recommend this to any true Elvis fan. If you're not a true fan, you'd be better off just buying the GI Blues soundtrack. Either way, you can't go wrong with Elvis.

I bought this as a present to show someone how Elvis recorded movie soundtracks in the studio. I hoped it would have some highlights that gave a taste of how the star worked. Unfortunately the three stars are for content rather than presentation. As it is its quite a weak effort by the Memphis Recording Service who normally put out A grade products. Its a simple basic digipack with so-so sound quality and no studio banter. Better to buy the FTD version with so many outtakes they've had to spread them across two volumes. It's much more expensive but well worth it.
