No one seems to have given their opinion yet on this cd after all the good reviews of the other July FTD release. Looks like a one disc job

Seems ok to me ,butwhat is a movie outtake andwhat hapened to all the missing takes eg clambake 1and 5 only and not forgeting 3b wheres 2,3,4,ect I can never understand the tracking lists put on ftd releases its like the new ElvisPresley loads of takes missing if theyare on other cds the notes should say so we can find them we are not all experts a little help would be good,alsothe movie cds should be released in order it would be better soyou know what was next instead it seems that its just put together any old way and as for classic albums dont forget the70's they where great albums theres plenty to choose from,getting back to clambake there are alot better film soundtracks awaiting release and they chose this why ?

It's a great pity that they chose to cut out the song sequence "How Can You Loose What You Never Had" This is a superbly great bluesy number. Another thought is why did they not let Elvis sing brilliant songs like "Big Boss Man' , "Singing Tree" or "Just Call Me Lonesome" in the movie CLAMBAKE instead of crapsheet like "Hey.Hey.Hey", "Who Needs Money" and "Confidence"? For me, only 3 movie songs are exceptionally good on this Elvis' weakest Soundtrack "A House That Has Everything", "You Don't Know me" and " The Girl I Never Loved" Still this 7" EP Size Deluxe Album is a welcome addition to my Elvis Library.

CDKING well said I tottally agree withyou for such a short sound track not inc bonus songs they could have put the lot on

Elvis fans always come up with the impossible. By the the time Elvis recorded Guitar Man in Sep. 67 the movie Clambake was already finished, recording session and filming. Anyway why fuss over it now. To me this looks like a good set. I always liked this LP better than Double Trouble, Speedway, Frankie & Johnny and Paradise Hawaiian Style.

Crapbake Lp better than Speedway? You've got to be kidding. If you have noticed my posting, I am a big fan of the FTD Elvis Movie Soundtracks and the Elvis DVD 60s Movies. For the weakest LP, Clambake ranks the bottom of the list. Too bad they did not issued a Easy Come, Easy Go LP or that will rank side by side with Crapbake. Harum Scarum, Frankie & Johnny, Speedway, Spinout are all Top Class Soundtracks even though extremely poor movies. Of all the soundtrack, SPEEDWAY deserves a FTD treatment and 7" Format Gatefold EP Style release. Let Yourself Go, There Ain't Nothing Like A Song, Who Are You Who Am I, Your Times Hasn't Come Yet Baby are excellent. And even He's Your Uncle Not Your Dad is a mile better than that sheety Who Needs Money. And those Bonus Songs on Speedway are all brilliant: Going Home, Western Union, Mine etc The title song Speedway is a hundred times better than that embarrasing My Little baby Loves Clambake, Clambake...

Lets get real. These soundtrack LPs when taken as a whole (minus the bonus songs) are all bad. With 1-3 good songs (maybe) per movie, they were an embarrasment to Elvis' career. I was in high school when most of these came out. If you said you were into these, you were ridiculed. It was tough being an Elvis fan in the mid 60's. It wasnt until the release of Big Boss Man in late 67, that my friends actually took notice of a new Elvis song. The bonus songs should have been used to make 2 excellent studio albums one in 1963 & one in 1966 to save some merit. The soundtracks were only used to promote the bad movies. Spinout was the best of the lot. At least he rocked a few times.

Alot of the fans wanted to see Elvis sing in the movies. Yet Elvis wanted to act. I just wish that the Coloniel would have put a balance here. Allow room for both. I don't think the Coloniel was as smart as some give him credit when it came to managing. Elvis should have been more non singing roles where he could sink his teeth in some roles that HE cared for. And to appease those that wanted to see him sing, maybe every other movie have him sing as long as the songs were of quality. The Coloniel should've had the smarts to think in advance, will these songs hold up on radio airplay like "Jailhouse Rock" or "Hard Headed Woman"? if not, toss them. That should've been the standard for choosing the movie songs. I believe Elvis morale would've have been great had this balance been in place. The Coloniel seemed more interested in hawking carnival trinkets with Elvis' name or face on them. When it came to the movies, the Coloniel didn't know how to really manage. I know I have the luxury of looking with hindsight. I just wished the Coloniel & Elvis had saw this in advance.

Dixieland Rock - U are correct. The Colonel was a great manager for the 50's and getting Elvis promoted and started. Different times. Once the mid 60's came around and he had Elvis tied into those silly movie contracts, it was time for him to go. It had to kill Elvis to make these movies & sing these songs while music was explodiing around him. The Colonel never understood the music/art aspect of things. Think of how great it would have been had Elvis been allowed to make live TV appearances in 1964-65 at the height of his powers! The colonel was slowly killing his career. Thank God Elvis stood up to him for the 68 TV special or that could have been another disaster! The King was reborn again & then the same thing happened in the mid 70's with the Vegas contracts and the one nighters across America. At least we got a few studio LPs out of the 70's!

Steve V, you are absolutely right. RCA should have used those superb BONUS songs to compiled into a brilliant album in 1963 and another mega super album in 1966. But then, RCA wanted to use these great tracks to strengthen those weak Soundtrack albums.
PTCJones wrote on June 18, 2006
I think we as fans are also partially responsible. It's nice to blame everything on the Colonel, but the simple fact is that singing Elvis pulled in more people than non-singing. We forged the way by making movies like Blue Hawaii more popular than Flaming Star. The Colonel's role was achieved to make as much money as possible and we took the bait. The sad thing is, I think the same is happening today with lacklustre compilation albums we just keep buying. When some people start to question it like on this messageboard, they are cut down with arguments like "Don't buy them if you don't like them".

PJones - Point well taken. I've been told that a few times when I vocied my opinion about the endless comps.
