Yes power, for a few songs but the rest of the songs are weak. Elvis should´ve take a rest and recorded the songs in a better mood. That´s my opinion.

We gotta face the thruth here... As long there are fans that are willing to part with their earned money, they will keep issuing them. I guess the next move (in not so near future) will be alternate edits of previously released songs etc. But it will end at some point.

A typo in that I believe Star and not Stax supposedly ruin the collection. I find his voice superb during this period and unusually for me create a CD exclusively from these sessions and year. To me there are at least 23 more than acceptable original songs here.
