big difference from sessions and releases! a clue is a question: where's PLANTATION ROCK and MAMA? not here, because they came out much later. another clue: included are many 1961 session songs which were issued the following year: FOLLOW THAT DREAM, KID GALAHAD.

having said that > it's always a pleasure to listen to these songs from three of his best movies, but more importantly, because Elvis is engaged in the material and his voice is powerful (even when crooning). in addition, we do find some actual "movie versions" - EARTH BOY and THANKS TO THE ROLLING SEA (I'm pretty sure THANKS was "unintentionally" issued as an a capella version on the ELVIS ARON PRESLEY boxed set in 1980, however). we also get some snippets of movie dialogue...pretty cool. sound is okay on these film versions.

that "crooning" has always turned off the '50s purists but hey, good music is good music. i'll take THAT'S SOMEONE YOU NEVER FORGET over ANYPLACE IS PARADISE, personally.

correct me if I'm wrong: also contained is the first CD appearance of ON TOP OF OLD SMOKEY (?).

special note: the follow up "studio" album to SOMETHING FOR EVGERYBODY was, in a way, not a studio album. it was a collection and a very strong one. I give POT LUCK a four star rating and SFE a three, here on Amazon.

Great collection of Elvis classics, soundtracks and albums tracks and singles. Sound quality good on studio cuts, not so great on the soundtrack versions but that is to be expected. A nice package complete with informative booklet with colour reproductions of the covers of his albums,singles and EPs. He really did produce some beautiful music in '62. The Pot Luck LP contained here is outstanding and the many examples of teen pop on these discs are as good as it gets. Nice to have all this gathered on a well presented 2 disc collection.

The last Complete Sessions from Chrome Dreams lacks the booklet in this edition...too bad...this was one of the interesting parts of these compilations...still the CD offers great ELVIS songs with perfect sound...I recommend it

I think all in all this is a good CD, if you like/love Elvis Presley's early stuff you will Really love it.
