One of the King's better films and the songs are also good. This album includes the original album release,together with each song as it was performed in the film. This gives an interesting insight into how the tracks were adapted for the different media. Bonus material includes another version of 'Lover Doll' A must for the Collector and fan alike.
Like the "Loving You" cd,the sound is fine,punchy and clear,all at the same time.The package would have been even better if a booklet had been with it,telling about the selections.This soundtrack is a killer,just like the movie.The man was at his peak in all areas.
Ok so why buy this when in truth we probably have these tracks a hundred times before. True. However apart from the masters which can never be musically criticised we also get ten movie versions with dialogue included and a remix of Dixieland Rock. I am glad I bought it and indeed like the Flashlight release of Jailhouse Rock I am likely to play it frequently it's well worth it.
These movie versions are different from the original record versions, that made me decide to get this cd as there aren't too many alternate recordings from this session on the market. The stereo version, and lp & ep masters are great to have in my collection too. Great disc! great songs! and above all: GREAT QUALITY!
