Worth having for a collection,
This review is from: Private Moment (Audio CD)
I think the Follow That Dream label is pretty good..you get all sorts of goodies that arnt always available otherwise. The cases are pretty good too with unusual photos etc..there are about 8 in the series and will make a really good little collection in due course.
This CD features a bunch of stuff from 1959/60... If you havent heard this sort of thing before you may find it interesting however you might be better with a copy of The Home Recordings or The Complete Million Dollar Session. Whats good about this "informal" material is that its like having elvis and a few buddies banging away on a piano in the room next door. Anyway there are 29 tracks...its quite hardwork to listen to, not enjoyable really in parts. That said in addition to the 59/60 stuff there are 10 songs from 66..one, moonlight sonata, is really weird. Some of the tracks (Its a Sin to Tell a Lie, Fools Rush in ) are great. In short if you are an occasional Elvis fan dont get this..gets Thats The Way It Is special eddition (3 cds). If you are a big fan get it, if only for the '66 stuff or for yr collection, if you are an in betweeny, well its yr money...
