Customer Review

on 12 June 2005
Things turned around for Elvis in summer of '66, not only did Elvis return to the studio to record 'proper' material, but Elvis started to put more into his work again. This album and the similar "Double Trouble" really marked the end of his lazy mid 60s low point.
Quite an upbeat album, it features a strangely out of breath Elvis, and horrible tinny sound to the recordings. Thankfully it lacks the usual horrible kid friendly effort, which makes it a better listen than many. Of cause "Never Say yes" and "Stop Look And Listen" are poor, "Am I Ready" is dull and "Beach Shack" is not great.
However there are some fun to be had. "Smorgasbord" and "Adam And Evil" have quite a bit of life, "All That I Am" is quite a high class ballad, and both "Spinout" and "I'll Be Back" are rather good.
So a 2 star album that's saved with the inclusion of some studio recordings from around this time, "Down In The Alley" is a presentable r'n'b effort, while the country road song "Tomorrow Is A Long Time" and the tender ballad "I'll Remember You" are noting less than fantastic. Chalk and Cheese.
The outtakes offer little musically, but are as good fun as usual.
