Here are 25 great songs from Elvis, giving you a mixture of Gospel, Blues, Country and Rock all on one CD. All are previously unreleased takes with a bonus for me of two songs that I had never heard of before. "Stay Away" - sounds like the song "Greensleeves." And "Going Home" As with everything that Elvis does his voice is powerful the backing is just right all songs are brilliantly performed and there is plenty of studio banter and laughter - which adds fun to a great CD.
The take of "Too Much Monkey Business" is fantastic with Elvis and the guitarist having fun before he starts to get into the song. I'll Remember You - is the best take I have ever heard - the backing music does not overpower his voice and the guitar and harmonica follow the melody for the full 4mins 10 Sec's of the song. I may be biased but all 25 of these songs are just magic, this is a great CD of alternate takes. My recommendation is to add this to your collection or if you don't have any Elvis start your collection now with this one.
