CD Reviews

You can get these tracks on the reissued Moody Blue...

"...which is where I heard them, but my guess is this is a better way to go. Both this album and Moody Blue were recorded at a studio Felton Jarvis had built for Elvis in his home. The best of those sessions wound up on this album, and the rest is on Moody Blue. The reissued Moody Blue puts all these tracks (minus one) as bonus tracks, and it is striking how much better the album sounds when it gets to these tracks. Songs like "Hurt," "The Last Farewell" and "Bitter They Are..." belong in the canon of classics. Powerful, almost desperate singing."
Another Gem overlooked!!!!

"Recorded in 1976, this album could have been the turning point in Elvis'musical styling. Long gone were the days of the echo-plastered sun recordings or the sometimes "corny" movie soundtracks. Even though he was extremely ill during this period,Elvis poured his heart and soul into each of these recordings. Included on this album are such classics as "Danny boy", "The Last Farewell", "For the heart" and the heart-wreanching "Hurt". (Eat your heart out Pavoratti!) I first bought this album at the age of ten. Seventeen years later it is still my favorite. I highly recommend this album to any fan or person who wishes to familiarize themself with Elvis' final recordings. It is unclear to me why albums such as this one were overlooked by disc jockeys and replaced with the overplayed "classics". Do yourself a favor and add this Gem to your collection.
Thank you, Thank you very much!!!!!!!"
The best and most misunderstood album Elvis made

"Why this title for my review? Let me tell you now. Ask some random person you meet what Elvis songs he or she knows. That person will most likely answer you titles like Hound Dog, Don't Be Cruel, Jailhouse Rock and Are You Lonesome Tonight. And off course, these are really classics. But sadly, people see Elvis as a dumb guy who only made good songs at the beginning of his career (like the ones mentioned before). This upsets me! My God, The Beatles are on TV! Why not Elvis?! My God, people think that Elvis abused young girls ( dumb rumours..!), My God, people think that Elvis only made some bad movies!If i think about these things, i feel Hurt. And that is the first song from this album. Elvis probably felt Hurt as well. That's not hard to understand. Anyone in his shoes would feel the same way. Always underestimated and misunderstood. That is exactly why the decline started in his life. Elvis did not destroy himself, the people destroyed HIM! Why did they do that? To know that, read this qoute:"When a true genius appears in this world, you may know him by this sign: That all the dunces are in confederacy against him."-Dean Swift, 1667 - 1745This album really tells a lot about the way Elvis felt. Sadly, this kind of music is too good for a lot of people (or should i say "dunces"?). They only see the bad sides of Elvis. (like boring movies)Now you know why my title is called this way, let me tell you about the songs!The first one (like mentioned before) is the formidable, majestic, powerful, fantastic song Hurt. This song is really GREAT. Why? First of all, the way he sings it is really astounding. The beginning is great, the spoken middle part is great and the ending is great. Opera singers should be jealous! This song really proves that Elvis always made progress in his life. He couldn't sing like this in 1954! The second reason why this is great: it is a revelation about Elvis personal life and that makes it even better. No-one can ever do better than this performance.The second song is sad as well. "Never Again" says something about Elvis his feelings, just like Hurt. This song is about loss and pain. Not strange."Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain" is just as sad. Listen to it and cry."Danny Boy" is heartbreaking... Sorry, i can't go saying the same stuff over and over again for the songs on this album. Only "For The Heart" proves he didn't lose the strength to sing happy, rocking songs.This is an album for the REAL Elvis fans only. Did i mention i'm a 15-year-old boy who listens to other music than the people with the same age do?"
