"HIGH price, = near $3.14c per song; ain't heard it yet, got the VHS, my favorite song: A Dogs' Life, only in this title, but $30.00-for a CD? It's from the U.K., NOT DREAM, it's DERAM, one subsidery of the London/DECCA group. Since the movie was shot here, in Hawai'i, O'ahu/Honolulu, I'll take a guess that the U.K. CD may be in STEREO, so fake sound. No information at CDNOW
>divide the $30.00 + outlay, and it's only 10 tracks = near $3.50 per song. Due to online lack of CD information, mono/Stereo, I'd suggest: buy the VHS. Some nice on site pictures showing the 1960s' Honolulu on O'ahu, now deleted from the island of O'ahu. It was nice here, the video shows the way it WAS. Price WAY too HIGH! *2 Stars* too High a price!
I started in musicology from 1954. Any Q&A "

"This is the second soundtrack album referring to Presley's most favorite movie set locale that is Hawaii. Still, Elvis Presley, apart from the "Paradise, Hawaiian Style" movie did a couple more movies in the past that take place in the 50th state: "Blue Hawaii" and "Girls! Girls! Girls!"
Now this third album, as far as sound goes, stands somewhere in between. Does this in the middle road approach combine the effects of the two previous albums? Not in every level. Elvis Presley contemplates with songs that any other singer would make them far out disinteresting. The material is not the best in Presley's career. Still, some clever arrangements along with a surprisingly inventive Presley performance give us the reason to not overall neglect this album.
Do pay attention to the out-takes which demonstrate a Presley in fun mood that competes his similar mood during the "Spinout" recording sessions. Apart form that, the out-takes showcase Presley's voice agility and unique performance that once again both characteristics place him on the pantheon of male lead singers."
