I suspect the duet is 'Love Me Tender'. Yet another issue of this album with a bonus duet – it seems a lot of countries except the UK are being given bonus versions. What is going on Elvis-wise in the UK? We now also know we are not getting the long awaited 'Suspicious Minds' single here & of course the DVD of "Elvis On Tour" is not being issued here either. This is a very poor state of affairs.

Yes the duet is LMT but that was not that hard to figure out ; was it ? Thalia is the greatest female singer of latin America (yes , even ahead of Shakira). This version of the VE sold by Walmart is simply the one meant for latin America . Being sold at Walmart , I guess it aims the latinos leaving in the States who could be interested in the Album thanks to Thalia being featured ; now the big "but' is since they won't hear about it : they won't buy it. No single + no promo = flop. Shame on Sony.

Thank God somebody finally put the King of Rock and Roll and the Queen of Soap Operas together on one CD!!! The world has certainly been clamoring for that. OK, easy to make fun of, but she sure is pretty!!! I don't really mind this kinda thing--some exclusive to WalMart duet doesn't bother me too much. But I hope there are no duets on the real album. (Lots of hype in this quote. OK, we get it! Thalia is popular even though some of us have never heard of her! Stop giving me her resume already.)
