Reviews

Here we have a new CD release from another new label "Billion Records". Well, to begin with, there's nothing new on this CD release, all the tracks has been released before on other (hard to get) BMG CD's like the re-mixed album "Guitar man", that the Elvis fans love or hate. Including one extra bonus song "Kentucky rain" that was not released on the orginal album, but was put on the Bilko Import CD "The other side of memphis". Futher we have here the extended version of "It's only love" & "The sound of your cry", and also the remixed songs from the "I was the one" album. Bossa Nova baby (extended version) was released on the 1st Elvis latino CD, that is pretty hard to find, and the CD close with the (in)- famous Elvis Medley and "An American trilogy" from the This is Elvis soundtrack, that is still my favorite version of Trilogy. To summarize this CD, this is not a very interesting CD, only for the die hard collectors, and the Fans who didn't have the original BMG albums in their collection. Billion Records tried to improve the sound a little, and only 500 copies were made of this release, and that's more than enough!!!

Sound: 9 out of 10.
