Elvis Sings For Kids Tin-Can
Sony will release the 'Elvis Sings For Kids" album in their tin-can box series on July 27, 2010.
Ruthie me & you diasagree on some things,but its just music,i dont hate someone just becuase i dont share every view they do,anyone who thinks there view is the only view worth hearing is a fool!
Have they added "Your time hasn't come yet" ? Also the fast versions of Big Boots ? My little
daughter may like that very much (don't forget the alternative outtake version of Cotton Candy land). A real winner for kids (and their Elvis-folk-parents---should be in all Kid-stores. Or EPE
should make an agreement with some Kid products stores (Osh Kosh a/o others) Be creative.
Thank you mature elvis fan 75. You have come up with the exact right word: respectful. And you are right - enough said!
Invisible because there were too many capitals in the text
Hey I like Pink and I'm no kid! She is very good and can actually sing with feeling as opposed to most artists today. The only market for this tin are the fans on this site who 'have' to buy everything thrown their way. I agree with John, no kid is buying this.
Today's kids want Hannah Montana, Pink, High School musical not this. As for the tin can..!
I am one of those idiots I guess. Sven your observation is quite correct. Another way of showing the true value of Elvis to the world would be highly appreciated.
The same old discussion among us. Icon/phenomenon and/or artist/singer. Elvis deserves to be remembered as a pioneer of music and the most versatile and fascinating singer ever. I would personally prefer to have him presented to the public like Beatles, Sinatra etc. whom they would never put in a tin can. My friends are truly surprised and impressed when I play music from all three decades, because they just think of jumpsuits, Vegas, and Graceland when they hear his name. I have given "Jungle Room" to about 6-7 people, and they all came back to me with the same reaction: "Didn´t know he was THAT good! Didn´t know he could sing like THAT!"
Have a Great New Year Elvis Friends!
It is also my right or anyone else to not agree with your way of giving your opinion,its not your opinion on this release thats come under fire its your way of giving your opinion that has,enough said indeed!
I believe the right I have to say the things I say falls under my constitutional rights. Freedom of Speech. Enough said.
Could we act cival? I myself get flack because i dont like everything Ftd or Elvis for that matter!
I myself have no interest in such releases,its just another release to add to the already countless compilations,but lets at least try and be respectful,its just music!
This last comment says it all & justifies my point. Regardless of whether one is referring to an individual or a group, what right does that person have to call the rest of us idiots or refer to our musical tastes as crap. It's an ongoing theme on this site & extremely childish. This is supposed to be an adult forum.
Ruthie, I commented on the tin & the idiots that will buy it. At no time did I mention anyone specific person. You did that stated I need to get a life. So I answered you in a like mind.
A solid line-up here. "Big Boots", "Cotton Candy Land", "Puppet On A String", "How Would You Like To Be" & the classic, "Five Sleepyheads". Bring it on.
Another stupid release!Why,oh why won't the record company concentrate on QUALITY products?!
Maybe it's because alot of fans buy this kind of crap?And that's sad!!!
Yet another compilation without "Dominic" on the tracklist. What a missed opportunity! Yes Steve, my kids are almost 14, 12 and 7. They like Elvis doing "Hound Dog" or anything else and they especially like the Vegas years. But not one of them ever asked me to buy an album with "Old Mac Donald" on it. My boys are into modern stuff as well, but on the other hand they do love Hank Williams' essential recordings.
No, unfortunately, I don't have time for Elvis 24/7 or anyone else for that matter. Between my job, my family, travels & serving on the Board of the Jazz Society (oh, no Elvis?) I also don't have time to pick on what other people do. It keeps one from becoming a cranky old person who has no interest in being anything other than mean spirited. If you don't agree with someone's opinion of a song, that's what this forum is for - not to comment on others & their lifestyles.
And just what does one do with the tin can? Just when I think these releases cannot get any lower they do. My pick for the quality Elvis release of this year is the Elvis 69 book. And it didn't come in a tin can!
Decorative tins, tin cans, I just don't get the attraction of CDs packaged like this & yes, I have seen many other artists packaged this way (not with kids songs however). My opinion? I think they look kind of cheap and unimaginative. Just a ploy to get you to buy the same stuff & make a quick buck, like colored wax & picture disks in the late 70's for LPs. One final thought, Its kind of sad that one of the very few Elvis concept albums had to be a children's album.
This is a very cynical ploy by the record company to get well meaning adults to buy a pointless Elvis CD. Kids are happy with good songs. They don't need them packaged like this to think it's great music. Sure the record company wants to make money and I have got no problem with that but there's no reason. However, to me, and it's just my opinion, but to me this is dumbing down Elvis's legacy down by banging some cutesy songs into a tin and calling it a kids album. You don't see this kind of thing done with the Beatles music and that's because their record company cares a tiny bit more about the perception of their artists' music.
First of all in the collectors world they are not referred to as tin cans, but rather decorative tins.
I have the "Home for the Holidays" tin which came out in 2007 I believe. The cover photo is beautiful. The extras were interesting. I'm not a collector. I don't regret buying it. BTW: Many musical artists in a number of musical genres have decorative tins in their honor. This NOT just an Elvis thing.
When I was 6 I was into Elvis but it wasn't kids songs, it was Jailhouse Rock & All Shook Up. It was 1957 and if I heard Elvis sing Old MacDonald I would have cringed. I think this release is silly. At a time when we want good Elvis product out there, I don't want to see this(again!) A kid who gets into Elvis at 6 because of Old MacDonald more than likely, wont be into him anymore when he's 12-13. I know because my son and his friends were and now no longer care. They are only into today's artists. Lets get the catalog restored to how it was in the 90's with releases that made sense. I don't get the whole tin can thing anyway.
No , you need to get out more in the world. My life does not revolve around a man that's been gone for over 30 years. I'm not the one going on an Elvis cruise, trading stories about the one thing you have in common. I am not trying to indoctrinate little 6 year olds (who will not care about the King in year or two). I like the King but do not live him 24/7. This tin stinks!
For no less than a whopping $21.98! That’s an expensive tin! I loved the album (Elvis sings for children…and grown-ups too) when I was a kid. Old MacDonald was actually one of my favourites (what can I say? I was four!). I’ve scanned the original cover and compiled the original track listing from other CD’s I have in my collection (plus bonus tracks :-) ) and I gave it to my daughter when she was born. It’s one of her favourite albums.
if i see it at any store i might buy me a few copies. i gave my old copy to my then 5 year old niece and she played it all the time. she loves elvis now. i might buy a copy for all my nieces and nephews its a good beginners cd for kids. they will want more as they get older. my niece is now 9 years old and she loves suspicious minds and blue suede shoes. she plays them songs over and over again and sings to them lol
Ruthie there's a scenario for everything. I can already see all the 6yo streaming into the record-shops with their grand-parents .. making 'Old McDonalds' finally a number one hit. Sorry, I'm just kidding.
this adult idiot is going to buy it. and give it to a lovely 6 yr old girl who just saw her first Elvis show & is very excited about it. What a wonderful opportunity for both of us. You need to get out more in the world.
July 2010. I'll think about it then. I might buy it if they use the original cover and artwork. How can they release this now? They same way they can release other Sony Special Product titles. At an attractive, affordable price. Whether a title sell hundreds of units or thousands Sony makes money. Thank goodness you "geniuses aren't in marketing. The Colonel is dead. Long live the Colonel.
G.....zus. Did somebody dig up the colonel? How can something like this be put out in this day and age?
Finally! At his ealier anniversaries we were forced to buy boxed-sets with false starts and unused takes. But now -with his 75 anniversary coming up- we are finally getting our reward for being good customers for all these years.
This represents the all time low. Did it have to get to this? Should be called Elvis Sings For Adult Idiots. That's who will buy it.
