It's Just So Good,
This review is from: From Elvis In Memphis (Audio CD)
From Elvis In Memphis is an amazingly good album, full of excellent performances by Elvis Presley at his very best.
It is the best album ever made, God knows why it's not 10 or 15 times platinum.
Of course the songs are outstanding, plus bonus tracks from Elvis other 1969 album 'Back in Memphis' and 'Suspicious Minds' which was never on an original album?
But this is just such a great album, thoughourly deserving a push at the charts or being more prominently sold/placed in shops.
The likes of 'Gentle On My Mind' far eclipses Dean Martin and Glen Campbells versions as does a superior performance of 'Without Love' again much much better than the excellent Platters version and Tom Jones's.
But the lesser known 'Wearin' That Loved On Look' is stuuning rock music with a tinge of rythm and blues; 'Stranger In My Own Home Town' is blues; blues the equivelant of his 1960 'Reconsider Baby' and of course from one of the greatest blues performers that ever lived.
I can't fault this CD, one reviewer said that this is the Casablanca of music; son, thats an understatement, this is Elvis f*~#><ng Presley the King of Rock 'n' Roll!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
