What a frog ! I hated and hate the original Album from the 80´s and also the Ftd. No, nothing for me.

Too Much Monkey Business album was brilliant and still given a regular spin by me. I totally dislike those remixes that go on and on for 5 to 6 minutes like one of the versions of 'A Little Less Conversation ' as opposed to the 3 minute 30 second hit version

I really enjoyed the original Guitar Man LP back in the day. Never got into the FTD CD version. The bonus tracks added nothing to the original LP lineup except length. Won't be buying this release. Still play the original LP once in awhile.

I still play the original album though the cd sounds like a better mix imo. The bass originally was too thin. I'll buy this but only if FTD gives us a new cd of The Memphis Record from 1987 with unreleased tracks. Ernsts first foray into the Elvis world and my first Elvis record.
