to ger and all the idot's who tried to say that I said "ELVIS" was crap!-i never said that elvis was crap(i wouldn't be an "Elvis fan" if i did.)I did say that the previous SPANOX ALBUM was CRAP and baddly mixed and sounded awful and had absolutely NO IMPACT IN THE UK or USA charts!!(proving how awful the album really was)..and in regards to spanox saying that I or anybody else cannot say the new "spankox" album is CRAP unless we've heard it-well,i DO NOT WANT TO HEAR it thanks,..if it's the same DJ as the previous "spanox" album,thats a good anough reqason to totaly avoid it.(but,just to be scientific,i promise to actualy purchase this new album and listen to it,so i cann see for myself if it's the same crap cd as previously released-then i will have a right to still call it "crap"..which i know full-well it will be.)..I think elvis must have turned in his grave when the spanox cd was released previously/-it ruined what was classic elvis made me feel sick how low these so called DJ'S and record companies would go to make a quick buck!-as the old colonel once said not long after elvis' death in 1977 "NOTHING CHANGES".(i rest my case)

Spankox, I do look forward to hearing your latest remix album. I am a fan many of the remixes. Of course, nothing can replace the original recordings. As I stated before, I liked the way you did the remix of "Jailhouse Rock" & "Baby Let's Play House". I'm glad to see "King Creole", "Big Hunk of Love" "Paralyed" is on this new collection. It would be cool if you could do a remix of a song like "A Long Legged Girl" or another lesser known song from the late 60s & it be an official Sony/BMG release. If it could be MARKETED on a wide scale like "A Little Less Conversation" was in 2002, we might see Elvis back in the charts. There are many Elvis tracks from the 60s & 70s that if remixed properly could give Elvis new hits. I believe your remix of "Baby Let's Play House" could have been & still could be a big hit if the powers that be would push & market this to the public more & promote it. Anyway, best wishes on your new remix.

A lot of you probably never realized this, but Paul Oakenfold actually DID do another remix, but it was never released commercially. It still can actually be found though. Just go rent "Elvis has left the building" starring Kim Basinger, if you can manage to find it. The song plays just after her character's friend's husband has gotten injured, toward the end of the movie. Interestingly enough, Oakenfold got to play around with a 50's song before Spankox did, and this was in 2004, BEFORE the copyrights fell through. The remix is of "I Got Stung," and it play over the scene where Wayne Newton does a cameo appearance. It's really cool.

Hi Emiel, thankyou very much for your very nice review of the new album. I'm happy you like it. The day long "whistling effect" of "When My Blue Moon Turns To Gold Again" happens to me too! And I have to admit... the whistle on it is actually my own... :-)

Steve V. in a 2006 interview the Dutch DJ Junkie XL said he refused the offer of doing a full CD with Elvis remixes. He could have won a fortune had he agreed. "But it's not about the money, it's about music", was his comment. (He also declined a proposal by the Beatles (Paul, Ringo) who had asked for a remix of "Strawberry Fields Forever"). Personalley I guess that Paul Oakenfold was not asked for a follow up, as Rubberneckin' did not do too well in the charts...
Steve V (profilecontact) wrote on Sep 20, 2009report abuse
Does anyone know why the guys that did ALLC & Rubberneckin have not attempted another remix? Enough with the 50's songs already!
Emiel Maier (profilecontact) wrote on Sep 18, 2009report abuse
I have bought the CD this morning and it is the second I listen to it...: and it ROCKS!!! Again very tasty remixes. If you liked the previous CD, you will like this one too. Unfortunately Spankox concentrated on the Fifties songs. Was this done because of the copy-rights? I do think so. Keeping this in mind he did a pretty good job on the substandard Love Me Tender songs: Poor Boy, Let Me and We're Gonna Move. (Thankyouverymuch Ken Darby...). I have to admit that there is not a song with ALLC allure that will create a stir. But having said that: I hope SONY will reward Spankox with the remix of a song that has more potential for a bigger audience. (Read: a song with copy-rights on it...:-). Give this man songs like Let Yourself Go, C'mon Everybody or Spinout, and I have no doubt it will turn out fantastic. Highlights on Re:Versions II for me are: When My Blue Moon Turns To Gold Again (...this will keep you whistling all day! A very strong A Big Hunk O'Love. But the best one is undoubtedly One Sided Love Affair with a very, very strong riff.
Spankox, you are almost there...

I did like Spankox remix of "Baby Let's Play House" & "Jailhouse Rock". Those were good. But his remix of "Blue Moon Of Kentucky" was awful. The "Blue Moon Of Kentucky" video was a train wreck. I hope this latest remix album is good. (I really do because I do like remixes.) But please, spare us the "Blue Moon of Kentucky" style videos.

I do like the first Spankox Mix since its the only way to hear "new" Elvis Songs and so I am looking forward to this one very much. But where can I order it ? There are no advertisements for this in Germany at all ...

i have had the mis-fortune to listen to several remix tracks on youtube and they are awful. why dont you create your own music instead of ripping off another artists work? the classic recordings made by elvis are part of american music history. they sound perfect the way elvis made them and approved them.

marco 'officially approved by EPE' means they have no idea how to market Elvis' music anymore in this age of digital downloads nor do they care. A product is a product. CDs just aint what they used to be so EPE is more interested in other things like mugs & pillowcases.

Emiel, this has nothing to do with ignorance... but with experience. You liked the first album, fine, but I didn't... like I stated before I don't like altering Elvis' music, never did, never will. Not even when it's tastefully done, let alone when it's done in a CRAPPY way like this joker's first album...
Emiel Maier (profilecontact) wrote on Sep 12, 2009report abuse
Great News! More than 20 reactions on this topic, and I have counted already 10 times the word 'crap'! How ignorant can these people be. Never heard of the phrase "Don't judge a book by its cover"? I will get my copy next week and I hope to be pleasantly surprised by Spankox, the way he did with the first edition of Re:Versions. Next time I hope that Sony/BMG will participate in the distribution of the discs. As long as these CDs are only available at specialized stores, I don't think it will reach the younger generation we desperately need to keep the flame burning...

I enjoyed the first one, will definitely get this one.

On A Little Less Conversation, it is worth recalling that most fans disliked the remix first, many were annoyed at "tampering" with the originals, but now it is one of the most popular Elvis songs.

Hi everybody! Thankyou to all for your comments.... expecially the negative ones because they are very intelligent and written by very open minded people... ;-) I was just wondering: how could someone express their negative opinion on the new remix album that I have produced before having heard any song from it?? Anyway "Re:Mixes" truly is a great album and packaged in a fantastic way. I hope you'll enjoy to listen to it when it will arrive in the stores in the next days! Greetings from Copenhagen!

ALLC was good and refreshing to hear a obscure record turned into a stomper and it was something different for us Elvis fans and also appealed to the wider audience which was fantastic and it didn't do Nike any harm neither but all these other remixes are an overload in fact we are bombarded with Elvis releases and it is a shame because the real music Elvis produced is overlooked because of it, I think the word I am looking for is over exposure.
djm (profilecontact) wrote on Sep 11, 2009report abuse
we have had great releases this year. ftd blue hawaii dixieland delight, standing room only, the memphis anthology, the vegas 69 book, and soon the jailhose rock sessions, sunset rehearsals and good times to look forward too. so plenty of great genuine elvis releases to spend your money on instead of worthless crap like this. the fact that EPE indorses this only adds insult to injury.
italianfan (profilecontact) wrote on Sep 10, 2009report abuse
As an 'italian joker' myself, i can tell another a mile off. I don't mind remixes, if they are done well. i.e ALLC. I mean ALLC did get alot of air play and publicity for E. But these type of remixes sound like they come out of someones bedroom studio. Which is fine for personal enjoyment and the satisfaction of producing a remix, but for actual release? Please!
Lex (profilecontact) wrote on Sep 10, 2009report abuse
Yeah, but it is the strongest word that is allowed that expresses my feeling about this stuff. I never liked any remix or other tampering with Elvis' music, but with ALLC and Rubberneckin' I could hear it was done by a pro. I still didn't like them, but they were professional. Something that absulutely can't be said about this italian joker.

Remixing Elvis songs is not such a bad thing. After all, music recorded 40-50 years ago is bound to sound dated to many and some of the 60's 70's music Elvis recorded is mixed terribly and could use a facelift. I still get a kick out of ALLC and to a lesser degree Rubberneckin. But I have NOT heard a 50's remix worth a damn. The songs to me just dont work and to tamper with classics is just plain stupid. Also Poor Boy/Let Me? Oh my.
NONE000000 (profilecontact) wrote on Sep 10, 2009report abuse
I really am a fan of remixing Elvis, but it is more in theory because most of the actual remixes I have heard are not very good. And I have to agree that Spankox is simply pretty bad at this and does seem VERY amateurish compared to JXL and Paul Oakenfold. I ran across a weird CD about a year ago called "Rock-A-Hula Baby" by Orange featuring Andreas Hellkvist. It's just 5 Elvis movie songs, done as instrumentals and they totally rock. "Spinout" and "Let Yourself Go" are both on it. Using my computer I actually created a really cool version of "Let Yourself Go" by stripping away as much of the music from the 68 version and keeping just Elvis' voice, then "mixing it" into the cool instrumental from that cd. All in all, I like it better than 99% of Spankox's other album of remixes. But I am still looking forward to hearing these. A bad sign, however, is that there is a YouTube video for "Blue Moon Of Kentucky" already, and it is horrible. The video itself is VERY VERY bad and stupid, and the remix, once again, sounds amateur in the extreme.

Guys, we only have here 50's remixes because, in Europe, all 50's songs are public domain since the copyrights have expired (50 years protection). So this CD is released only with a real purpose: To make some extra Dollars / Euros for RCA/BMG/EPE. Honestly I liked ALLC, and even Rubbernecking or baby let's play house (although ALLC is much, much better than all the rest), but I didn't liked the 1st. Spankox album. Let’s wait for this one...

The last CD from this guy was impressive but way overdone - like he had used every trick in the book and every effect he could on every song. The best remixes are usually fairly subtle, so I think I'll pass on this one.

I agree... late '60s soundtracks are a good choice to remix them ("Let Yourself Go", "Spinout", "Stop, Look And Listen," etc.), but to remix '50s classics... it's not a good idea, because of the fact that they were (mostly) recorded in mono. Spankox did a god job en "Baby, Let's Play House" but, to me, the rest of that album consisted of cheap home-made remixes (or an expanded single). Hope to find at least a good surprise on this new one... I like the cover.
Steve V (profilecontact) wrote on Sep 10, 2009report abuse
I got a few picks - I agree with you on Let Yourself Go, also I'll Be Back, Power Of MY Love, and maybe even Spinout because it has a great vibe to it. I would only want unknown later 60's or 70's songs. They could open up a few eyes and a new radio world for Elvis. ALLC is now considered one of his more popular songs all because of that remix. Stay away from the 50's classics (and other classics). This could do a lot more for him than the endless compilation reissues

Steve V -- I agree. I had assumed it had something to do with copyright law, but it shouldn't since this is official. I'd been hoping for a "Let Yourself Go" remix for a while now. (Well, not actively hoping, but it's my personal pick for a good next possibility)

One question: A lot of these say "Radio Edit". A radio edit, in all my experience, is a shorter version of something--shortened for radio-friendliness, as opposed to an 8 or 9 minute mix that a dance club might play. So does that mean all these "radio edit"s are indeed not the full remixed versions? If so, where does one find those?
NONE000000 (profilecontact) wrote on Sep 9, 2009report abuse
I really hope this does not suck. I like the track listing, and I could especially imagine "A Big Hunk O'Love" being a song that could have an impressive remix. And maybe "Paralyzed" and "King Creole", but it's hard for me to even imagine the others. Oh well, here's hoping it is good (all the while expecting it not to be....)
