October 03, 2018 | Music

Continuing their "Real Elvis Presley" budget series SONY music have announced the new release 'The Real... Elvis Presley At The Movies' out November 9 2018. Label: Sony Music Cmg  

Features 54 classic tracks from Love Me Tender through to Change of Habit. Nothing surprising on the track list.  'I Need Somebody To Lean on' is for instance not featured, neither is 'Let Yourself Go' and even 'Little Egypt' is missing. The 50's movies get 18 tracks while most sixties movies get only two tracks. Double Trouble, Easy Come, Easy Go, Clambake and Speedway only get one track each.

I always give a wry smile when the 60's movie tracks are dismissed as totally irrelevant dross. This collection of 54 tracks is more than a passable selection, but obviously won't satisfy everybody. There are 36 1960's tracks but IMHO strong songs such as (apart from those 3 listed above) Doin' The Best I Can, Pocketful of Rainbows, Blue Suede Shoes, Summer Kisses Winter Tears, Lonely Man, No More, Hawaiian Wedding Song, Steppin' Out of Line, Ku-U-I-Po, Angel, King of The Whole Wide World, I Got Lucky, Because of Love, They Remind Me Too Much of You, Mexico, Margarita, What'd I Say, C'mon Everybody, Anyone, Big Love Big Heartache, Puppet On A String, Kismet, Sand Castles, I'll Be Back, Paradise Hawaiian Style, City By Night, You Gotta Stop, Suppose, All I Needed Was The Rain, Stay Away, Goin' Home, You Don't Know Me, Edge of Reality , Wonderful World (1968),Almost In Love, Charro, Rubberneckin', Let's Be Friends, Swing Down Sweet Chariot are omitted and could have been used as substitutes without detriment to the collection. That totals 78 tracks up for consideration, which is not an exhaustive list , but in itself represents 35% of all his 60's film output (ignoring Tickle Me). which isn't an unmitigated disaster in my book.
