Everyone remembers those Elvis movies: Boy arrives from out of town, boy meets girl, boy sings songs, boy wins girl's heart, boy gets into fight with the local boys and sings more songs, boy loses girl due to a misunderstanding, boy sings more songs and wins girl back. OK, so the plots were pretty much the same, but Elvis was the King Of Rock 'N' Roll, not the King Of Method Acting, and it's the music that really mattered. This two CD set is released to remind the nay-sayers that for every choreographed bar-room brawl, there is always a great Elvis song ready to pop out at any given moment. From the movies Love Me Tender (1956) to Change Of Habit (1969), there are dozens of great songs, 40 of which are compiled on this collection. Hits like 'Jailhouse Rock', 'Love Me Tender', 'Can't Help Falling In Love', 'A Little Less Conversation', 'Return To Sender' and 'Viva Las Vegas' are here alongside lesser known gems like 'Follow That Dream', 'Rubberneckin'', 'C'mon Everybody' and more. Viva Las Elvis!
To that end, I decided to supplement my 'meagre' stash of music by 'The King' with this production, as it seemed to offer the best combination of material I already knew I liked but was not already on the CD I had, with the smallest element of 'duplication.
For completeness, the CD I already have is called 'The Essential Collection' and collates a good spread of his popular work over his entire career :
The Essential Collection
For me, with this CD, I think all that I'm missing now is 'Way Down'....
It has 2 discs stored in plastic inserts housed in a quality gatefold full-colour card case and includes a foldout double-sided 'poster' with photos/textual information.
The reproduction quality of the music is without fault, so all in all it's an excellent purchase and comes highly recommended.
