CD Reviews

OK, now I get it.

"All my life I thought of Elvis as some relic of the 1950s which for some reason a fanatical group of people keep making pilgrimages to Graceland and keep buying his music. Well, I finally matured and got curious enough to genuinely try and see if I couldn't get past the pop-culture Elvis and see if I could understand just what made him a superstar.

I went shopping for "authentic" Elvis recordings. (I really hate when an artist has become so popular that the anthologies and greatest hits albums outnumber the original recordings two-to-one so that you have trouble even finding the albums in their original form.)

I stumbled on this one and bought it and...wow! This is the real deal! I feel like I'm listening to the beginning of the rock 'n roll era, and I try to imagine what happened when this was all new and just breaking on the music scene. It's like listening to history, and it's just plain well performed and fun to listen to as well. This CD is a steal!

So, now I get it. I finally get it.

The best Elvis has ever sounded on record!

"With the Elvis recording going into popular domain in Europe this year, RCA is finnally getting it right. The original albums, as they were, with bonus tracks, in the best possible sound, with original cover and back cover of the albums. Beautiful. The sound restoration is to write home about, using DSD technology, Elvis is suddenly alive again. You can hear him with such a clarity, every vocal inflexion he makes, it it just breathtaking, even compared to the remasters done three or four years ago. These three albums: Elvis Presley , Elvis and Loving You belong in everyone collection in this form. ESSENTIAL."
THE BEGINNINGS OF ROCK AND ROLL

"As a kid this album was the one that brought me to rock and roll. The new beat with its blues and country accent was the greatest. I knew when I first heard this album that something great was comming. I would sing along to this album everyday. I listned to it when I was lonly, happy,sad, or just wanted someting to listen to. I traded it to my best friend years later for something I could not live without ( I don't remember what now). I saw this advertised and said I need this.
This album along with the next one were Elvis' best they showed real raw talent. Everything else was just icing on the cake ( a lot of icing). Great cake. The voice shows real emotion and his own style. The basic style would never change. He was great in the beginning and at the end. He brought R&R to mainstream America. Parents hated him because he was honest, polite,respected his elders,did his patriotic duty, didn't drink or smoke, and was loved by their children. Think about where their priorities and values were.
I am so glad this album was made axailable for a new generation"
