5 Stars5 Stars5 Stars5 Stars5 StarsMy personal favorate Elvis album and favorate Elvis movie of ALL TIME! This is Elvis at the peak of his career. He gives these songs his heart, soul and his gut. The film not only resulted in his best acting performance ever.(along with Flaming Star), but it also resulted in his best soundtrack ever (along with Blue Hawaii). "Trouble" is a masterpiece of a song and "Dixieland Rock" is a downright racaous number that in many ways is more dirty and swinging than "Jailhouse Rock". This is our last glimpse at the rebel rouser, true could care less rocker Elvis. A masterpiece!

5 Stars5 Stars5 Stars5 Stars5 StarsTotally agree! And the cover is a true clasic... Only Elvis can wear make-up and using that bandana -or whatever it is- on his neck without looking gay.

5 Stars5 Stars5 Stars5 Stars5 StarsThe best Elvis movie and the best Elvis soundtrack. All the tracks on this album are brilliant.. even "Crawfish" is a great track. I think that this album represents the point in Elvis's career where his true musical talents, abilities and genius began to shine. Too bad it only hit #2 on Billboard's Hot 100 Chart. This LP/CD had all the makings of what a #1 album is and should be.
