Well how to review this one … the title, the cover and the track listing don’t look very promising. We hesitated to review this release, but decided to review it as it is an “Elvis release” (which has been available before on vinyl) which is out there.
The use of the "National Enquirer" picture of the diseased Elvis is of course totally tasteless, but if it was not for the use of that shot, the parody could have been a nice one regarding the songs on this release. We folded the booklet inside out, the white paper looks so much better!
To put it mildly, most of the selected songs on this release rank not very high on our fan favorites song list. Strangely enough we find a few good songs like “U.S. Male”, “Can’t Help Falling In Love” (with a “shit” comment from Elvis after he messes up) and “Are You Lonesome Tonight” between the crap songs. Collectors might like the outtakes on this release, but probably have these already on decent releases.
The CD seems to be taken from a vinyl source (the original vinyl version?), but the quality is o.k., not that it matters with this content and since we probably won’t play this sh*tty release ever again.
A very tasteless release, for the avid collector only.
