Being Irish myself Im a embarrassed with this cover!! The public domain 50 years rule is so unfair. This needs to be changed to at least 100 years.

Sorry to be a bore, but in defense of the camden albums, they contained lesser known songs that were brilliant. The customer was happy, great, fun music and affordable to everyone. That's what was great about Col. Tom and Elvis, they never forgot the underdog and still made a quick buck. I gotta say Frankie and Johnny is a true Elvis musical even if the budget wasn't there to make it more glamorous and showbizz. The whole segment on Youtube with the introduction including the bandleader from M.A.S.H is totally surreal and Elvis sings the heart out of the title tune. One of my favourites so maybe these hard nosed wannabe musical critic types should stick to mop top boybands.

I agree with most Elvis fans, that instead of constantly reissuing the same material with different titles and covers, the powers that be should just concentrate on the original ELVIS ALBUMS released by him in his lifetime. Sure, improve the sound and add outtakes and most importantly make them available in record stores. The biggest selling solo artist of all time has hundreds of chart entries but no albums that sold ten million plus. Ask yourself why? Too many reissues!! On a positive note, first Elvis album i ever bought was the pink vinyl, 40 greatest hits, followed by about six cheapie camden releases with great covers. So if these bargain bin, public domains serve any purpose, they may win Elvis a new following, through their easy availability. Lets face it with Elvis fifties, you can't go wrong. However take a tip from Camden you public domain cheapies and get the cover right!!!!!!

Every supermarket,garage forecourt,7/11 are forever selling 'public domain' greatest hits cds etc, some are just plain cheap and tacky so have to say don't waste your money and go out and buy a descent import,ftd or failing that treat the kids to a Mcdonalds.

Does public domain songs apply to the 50's material only? Or should we expect a flood of "Elvis Is Back" releases, now that it's almost 50 years since it was first released?! God forbid!
