Keep Following That Dream

Feb 29, 2000
This release contains the "Complete follow that dream" recording sessions from the first generation tapes. As an added bonus Kwimper Records have included the actual masters but since these were cut from the master tape and BMG seems to have lost four of them, these had to be included from a mono source. On behalf of BMG Kwimpers apologizes. Now just sit back and enjoy yourself and leave the driving to Elvis and his band.

Angel (take 1-7)
This beautiful ballad from the people who gave Elvis many of his 60's movie songs must be considered the best song from the "Follow that dream" movie. It took Elvis five complete takes before he was satisfied and even then some vocal work needed repair. Certainly one of the better movie tracks.

Follow That Dream (take 1-7)
The title track for Elvis' eight movie, though a lighthearted song, is still very much enjoyable. In later years, Bruce Springsteen used this classic Elvis song for his own version of "Follow that dream", but it remained unreleased. If you ever get the change to listen to it be prepared for a true musical experience, it is really heartbreaking.

What A Wonderful Life (take 1-7)
Though this song is not considered to be among Elvis' better movie songs, it is still a very pleasant song. Take a listen to it whenever you're in a sad mood, it will help.

I'm Not The Marrying Kind (take 1-8)
What was written on "What a wonderful life" can be said of most songs from this Summer movie, they cheer you up whenever you hear them so who cares what the critics say.

A Whistling Tune (take 1-4)
This song was actually cut from the movie and wasn't released until 1991 when it could first be heard on RCA's "Collectors Gold" box set. The song was revived for Elvis' 1962 movie "Kid Galahad" when it was re-recorded and released in a much slower tempo, stretching the song to a playing time of over the three minutes.

Sound Advice (take 1-6)
Without a doubt the weakest song of the six and understandably cut by Elvis from the extended play that was released by RCA, leaving it to a mere four song soundtrack with a playing time of less than nine minutes. Though the entire musical soundtrack leaves much to be desired according critics, it still ranks high among collectors and is a welcome addition of Elvis Presley's music.

Whoever said that Elvis'vocals still needed repair after a series of takes of "Angel",must be deaf. His vocal capabilities, especially between, 1960-1962, are truly the most compelling, and are incomparable, and unduplicatable. I think the alternate takes are great. It gives fans a chance to hear Elvis at work. I can't stand to hear alleged fans trash Elvis.
