The best Elvis re-release for years.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Elvis Is Back! (Audio CD)
'Elvis is Back' along with 'Elvis in Memphis' is the holy grail of the Elvis catalogue the two CD special edition on the FTD collectors label is on the stunning 7" sleeve format with all the original artwork from 1960, Elvis never sounded better than on this album which was his first post army recording session and he had a lot to prove after being away from the public for two years this really was a make and break situation and he really came up with the results listen to 'Reconsider Baby' 'Like a Baby' and 'Dirty Dirty Feeling' to understand how determined he was, also included on this wonderful package are the singles recorded at these sessions like 'It's Now or Never' 'Are You Lonesome Tonight' and 'The Girl Of My Best Friend' also included are outakes false starts and breakdowns as well as alternate takes, never before have we had the complete 'Elvis is Back' sessions Fans have been waiting for this for years, go out and support this release so FTD can release the other early sixties albums like 'Something For Everybody' 'His Hand in Mine' and 'Pot Luck' The 'Elvis is Back' sessions returned Elvis to the top of his game and came back greater than ever.
