I'm all for new ideas in promoting Elvis - remixes etc, but these things cost money. Unless a song can come in on the back of an advertising campaign like ALLC, then BMG are not going to throw money at an expensive re-mix, and then more money at an advertising campaign. If they can team up with someone to foot that bill, then great. But in the meantime, I'm happy to hear out-takes of Elvis creating great songs.

Its thanks to the likes of Ernst Jorgensen and Roger Semon that we have been spoilt over the last 13 years with a wealth of un-released material. To suggest its tme to put them out to pasture is quite frankly insulting to them and to the legions of 'serious' fans. Long may they reign! This release is quite clearly not aimed at the serious collector but the casual buyer. If there wasnt a market for it: it wouldn't have been released. What is ironic is that the same people putting this kind of release down will quite happily go any buy the latest re-released single and download the same song umpteen times.

25000 fans buying them tired old number ones week after week seems as good as reason as any to put this out.

Maybe I'm missing the point, but I cannot understand the negative comments about Ernst Jorgenson and what he is releasing. Give me out-take albums from studio & movie sessions than simply revamped Hits collections. Sure, this has got a nice cover, although it looks like a touched up photo to me, and it is probably aimed at the casual fan as opposed to the collector and at £12 too. Of course, the really annoying factor is that if you have collected 99.9% of UK releases, then this one will probably get added to the shelf. But to retire Ernst in favour of this type of output, well....!!?? Sorry, I am obviously missing something if this the type of release coming from new blood - a transfusion is quicky required.

Show us something we HAVEN'T heard? Which real fan HASN'T got these songs a million and one times over? Joe Public even has these! For God's sake actually release something worth buying for once - yeah theyre great songs but 2 million releases of the same song is a little much for anyone. Still, a good release for those people who 'think' they're Elvis fans and don't have these yet! The kind of people who think the 'Way Down' new single is a newly discovered single....sad.

Nice try this compilation. But for ages I've had this idea - actually two versions of the same idea - of a compilation of one song from each of the 33 movies Elvis made, in chronoligcal order. The first compilation would comprise the title tune of each movie. "Love Me Tender, "Loving You", Jailhouse Rock" etc. There are exceptions of course. "King Of The Whole Wide World" for Kid Galahad, "Take Me To The Fair" for World's Fair, "Long Lonely Highway" for Tickle Me, "Stay Away" instead of "Stay Away Joe" and the same goes for several other films. The second version would comprise the BEST song from each film. This will no doubt be open to debate as everyone will have his/her favourite tune. But to give an example I would include "Trouble" from King Creole, "Can't Help Falling In Love" from Blue Hawaii and "Return To Sender" from Girls! Girls! Girls. What do other fans think?

The cover shot is Elvis recording the soundtrack of King Creole!

It's not cheap at £12.00 but it is well presented and comes with a cardboard slip-case too. Collectors notes: Love Me Tender is 'mono', I Got Lucky is the master as per the Double Features release with the longer intro and Swing Down Sweet Chariot is the Trouble with Girls version.
