TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 21 April 2013
By 1975 Elvis's health problems were causing increasing concern amongst his inner circle but despite what some of the critics might have been saying about his output at the time, "Elvis Today" demonstrates that Elvis was still "The King". Although not concentrating on rock 'n' roll at this point Elvis attacks 'T.R.O.U.B.L.E' with gusto and negotiates the almost tongue twisting lyrics with ease. This should have been a bigger hit than it was for that alone. Like the previous Promised Land album, "Today" then contains a mix of country ballads and mid tempo songs all expertly performed. "I Can Help" is here too, which made the top 30 when released as a single in the UK in 1984, thus demonstrating the enduring appeal of Elvis. "Fairytale" became a popular performance in Elvis latter concerts.
I'll end with a challenge to Elvis critics in relation to this period of Elvis career - Can you get your tongue round "T.R.O.U.B.L.E." and sound within 10% of Elvis's performance, can you belt out the ballads with the same feeling?
