A Good If Incomplete Retrospective Of Elvis' Later Years
anthony nasti | Brooklyn, NY United States | 02/28/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The fifth volume in the "Golden Records" series does a very good job of compiling the best material from his later years, where he was able to rack up an impressive 20 top 40 singles, as well as some earlier work. Songs like "Suspicious Minds", "Burning Love", "Kentucky Rain", "Guitar Man" and "For The Heart" are some of the best singles Elvis ever released. Still, if you're a hardcore Elvis fan, you will realize that the following top 40 hits from this period are missing:"The Wonder Of You" (# 9 in 1970)
"I've Lost You" (# 32 in 1970)
"I Really Don't Want To Know" (# 21 in 1970)
"Rags To Riches" (# 33 in 1971)
"I'm Leavin'" (# 36 in 1971)
"Until It's Time For You To Go" (# 40 in 1972)
"Separate Ways" (# 20 in 1972)
"Steamroller Blues" (# 17 in 1973)
"I've Got A Thing About You Baby" (# 39 in 1974)
"Promised Land" (# 14 in 1974)
"My Boy" (# 20 in 1975)
"Trouble" (# 35 in 1975)
"Hurt" (# 28 in 1976)
"My Way" (# 22 in 1977)Still, this is an excellent cd of Elvis' later years and is good for all fans."
This cd is just AWESOME

"This cd has some of the most soulful music I've ever heard ANYbody sing ANYwhere at ANYtime. Someone earlier said Elvis had lost his soul, WHAT? What do you consider soulful, G.I. Blues? I'm sorry, but for me soul means just that - COMING FROM THE SOUL. And these are songs Elvis sang because they meant something to him, they moved him, or just plained rocked him. It's got 'If You Talk In Your Sleep', now I don't know what some of you know about singing, but that is pure soul and r&b. It's got the funky horns, the clavinette keyboard, the bassline, every thing that makes a great early seventies soul recording. 'Clean Up Your Own Backyard' has always been one of my favorites, this is where Elvis tells people who are all up in his business to take care of their own affairs and leave him be. It too is very soulful. 'For The Heart' is like a mixture of rock and soul, which is always great. But I suppose for the fan who only wants to hear songs like "Hound Dog" and "Stuck On You" you won't find that teeny-bopper stuff here. This is a true soul singer doing what he does best and don't let anyone tell you any differently. I'd say get a strobe light, a black light, and some candles, put this CD on and watch the magic begin."
Sound could be better

"I have to agree with David Kenner of Fort Worth when he argues that the sound on this cd is not what it should be. When my wife bought this cd for me, I was initially excited only to be brokenhearted when I listened to "Kentucky Rain." The vinyl version of this song is superior. How often do you hear that vinyl sound is better than cd? On the cd version, background voices and instruments, especially the excellent horns, are almost nonexistent. The scariest thing about this is that it will make me hesitant to buy remastered Elvis cds in the future. My vinyl is in too good of a shape to be throwing good money away on bad remastering."
