FTD just released another classic album, this time the 1959 release “A Date With Elvis” is targeted.
The release has the common design for these series. Nice fold-out, with many picture. The booklet has extensive info and the pictures are mainly from his time in Germany.
A well, what can I say. I like the original compilation. Who can’t like those tracks? The bonus songs are okay too. Is It So Strange that with the 4th version I am getting bored of this song. It isn’t one of his greatest, not bad at all… but so often in a row is too much for me.
There is a reason that The Homerecordings and In A Private Moment hardly ever hit my CD-player. Now I know again what the reason was. This stuff really hurts the ear, when listening for longer than 10 minutes. I made it to the zillionth version of I Asked The Lord and then I had to take a break. I couldn’t stand it anymore. I am afraid the break will last the remaining of my life. I have so much great Elvis-music. Why should I torture myself with this stuff?
Indeed a classic original album, but I’ll stick to that LP if I want to hear it as such. All the additions will not make me play this again probably. Still the package is nice and it fits on the shelf with the other release.
