Hello i,m really like this kind of Elvis material, specially when contains a lot of movie outtakes. wow, it,s really nice to find this material. that,s for sure. i got a lot of ouuttakes in my colletion, so ,why not?

Couldn't agree with you more, Paul. Elvis could have made some great records like "Elvis Is Back" indeed. Correct, the movies damaged his image more than the later years. Now please enjoy "This Is Living", "Take Me To The Fair", "Earth Boy" and "Mama" and all the other movie classics. :-)

Volvo yes, we wouldn't have had the 68 come back without the movie years. Instead, we would have had 7 years full of really good albums like 'Elvis is back" for example, with real competition because of the the British invasion, world tour that would have been fantastic for his fame and artistic evolution, some outstanding TV shows, and so on...
But, no, all we have had were totally stupid movies that damaged his image maybe more than his later years, and kept him closed with an entourage composed of idiots. I think no artist have wasted his talent like he did.
Ton, I'm sure you needed my support. :-), and please, don't forget gems like "Chesay", "Confidence", "Carny town", and some others. See, some songs were really good, after all. And, seriously, he could do what he wanted if he really wanted it. But he needed to be challenged, and keeping him in Hollywood with illiterate people around him 24 hours a day, wasn't exactly the best way to let him evolve.

Although THERE ARE some good tracks on this set. Shake That Tambourine, from Harem Holiday is'nt one! And as for Down By The Riverside, Frankie And Johnny? forget it.
Ton Bruins (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 9, 2005report abuse
Thanks for the support Paul, I needed that, lol. In a way it killed his career yes. think about it: in the sixties he had a more than great voice and he sang silly songs like "Petunia, The Gardeners Daughter". When in his career did Elvis really what he wanted to do anyway ? Good question. Maybe he wanted to be a serious actor in serious movies or a gospel singer only...who knows. We have almost all the movies on DVD and we still haven't got Elvis On Tour on DVD..that''s odd. But that's not the subject

PaulfromFrance, The movie years are not my favourites either, but if we didn't have them then we probably wouldn't have had the brilliant '68 comeback.
Lex (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 9, 2005report abuse
Ton, I know exactly what you mean. I do have them all (as far as released) on DVD, but there are only a few I can "sit out". But the advantage of DVD is that you can play that few good songs :-).
PaulFromFrance (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 9, 2005report abuse
Ton: I have all the movies on DVD they sell here. Please, don't ask me why, but I have them. Of course... I don't watch them, because it's too hard to handle. I think I've watched the 4 classics filmed in the 50s, and some others, but it was more by accident than really deliberately. I remember trying to have a look at "Stay away Joe". I wasn't strong enough to stay in front of my TV screen. I hope I'll be forgiven. The movie years are a waste of time and talent. It killed his career. An artist must NOT give the public what the public wants or believe it wants. He must do what HE (the artist) wants to do.
Ton Bruins (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 9, 2005report abuse
Lex, I know that there are some really good movie songs. I admitted that early on. It's just that when I see most of his movies on TV (I don't have them on video or DVD - not one !) I quit after about 5 minutes, because it's all so ....? can't find the right words, but I think that you know what I mean. In those silly movies he wasted his talent big time.

The discussion about the quality of Elvis' movie songs is a hard task to take on. You know, when Elvis released "Elvis Is Back" in 1960 he had produced some of the best material ever, but this LP never sold nearly as well as "G.I. Blues" and "Blue Hawaii". In other words: The fans have made their stand: We want movie songs!! And yes, they are funny, charming, cult and so on, but I would really have loved to have 15 more LP's with Elvis singing new studio material in the line of "It Hurts Me" and "Reconsider Baby" instead of movie LP's like "Harum Scarum" "Double Trouble". But ... as we all love Elvis we will buy anything ever recorded and the outtakes, the alternate version and the original sound masters ARE interesting to most Elvis nerds. And that I think explains why you might buy CD's with songs like "Dominick" and "Dog's Life".

sorry to tell you this baby but these albums and films were more popular than elvis during the misery of the 70's . lets be happy and put on a smiling face .

"It won't be long" - a classic??!! Come on! I have a soft spot for a lot of movie tracks but to consider them as 'classics' is downright ridiculous. There are a few gems hidden away in the movie soundtrack era, but generally speaking they aren't up too much. Just look at the sales for the soundtracks from '64 onwards. Unfortunately, along with the later Vegas years, the movie period will always be poorly regarded by the public and musical historians alike, despite what we might think.. Still as a 'must have it all' fan i shall purchase!

Oops... I'm not that perfect after all, pressed submit to quickly. I wanted to add that it's indeed not ignorant, like some "blinded" fans are. It's indeed just an opinion.
Lex (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 8, 2005report abuse
Ton, I do certainly not agree on some points with you. Overall I do regarding the movie songs, but you have to admit there are some very good ones. CD King named a few of them. Give me "All I Needed Was The Rain" or "Edge" anytime (above a 1977 recording :-))).
JerryNodak (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 8, 2005report abuse
I don't know where to buy this. If I did, I would. Love the "movie years". Where do you find this type of release?
Ton Bruins (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 8, 2005report abuse
Most movie songs would fit in well in todays pop culture ? I don't think so. That's the point. During his Hollywood years Elvis missed the contact with the real pop culture, don't you agree ? Some movie songs were good, yes I know that. But come on Elvis is and was The King Of Rock 'n Roll. And then sings songs like Wooden Heart, Down By The Riverside, Frankie And Johnny, Golden Coins, Gold In The Mountains, Fun In Acapulco, etc. I am glad that you enjoy that kind of songs, but I don't. To call me ignorent is not right I think. It's just an opinion, nothing more.
CD King: the songs you call classics are not classics to me I am sorry. But no hard feelings. Please enjoy listen to them.

The movie songs mostly were very good. They would fit in well in todays pop culture. Anyone who dismisses the movie songs as unimportant is just ignorent!!
old shep (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 8, 2005report abuse
This set reminds me of all those Camden and International albums RCA dished out in the 70's. Amongst the dross there were some fine stuff. Unfortunately the good songs were few and far between.I long for the day when different cuts of the Rock n Roll number 2 surfice.

Prejudice, prejudice - some people are just plain prejudice when it comes to the Elvis movie songs. How can any sane person lump in all the movie songs altogether and call it crap I cannot comprehend. Looking at the List, tell me honestly are these craps? King Creole, King Of the Whole Wide World, Loving You, All I Needed Was The Rain, Edge Of Reality, Change Of Habit, Charro, A House That Has Everything, Let's Forget About the Stars, It Won't Be Long and so on... These are some of the very best ELVUIS Presley recordings, just because they were in a movie, they're crap. To me and i believe the majority these are Classics!!!
Ton Bruins (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 8, 2005report abuse
I am not disrespectful to other people. Just my opinion that 90% of those 2 CD's is crap. But to each his own, no problem. Lex, I don't fit into the Sundial suit anymore, lol. And yes Old MacDonald instrumental is superb, just love it.
Lex (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 8, 2005report abuse
Ton, don't kid! I know you love to mime Old MacDonald in your Sundial suit. Finally you can do karaoke on the real track now! Congratulations!
Tony C (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 8, 2005report abuse
Regarding the comment about there being nothing new on these CD's, how can anyone be sure of that as the take numbers are not mentioned for the majority of the tracks.
As for the material just being "movie c...", I notice that among the track listing are "Loving You", "King Creole", "Doin' The Best I Can", "All I Needed Was The Rain", "Edge of Reality" and "Change of Habit". Yes, these are movie songs, but I'm not sure I would describe them as the second word in the quote.
xeletahi (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 8, 2005report abuse
Ton, dont be so disrespectful of other peoples preferances please. I f you took the time to listen to some of the "movie crap" you just might find some gems in there instead of bieng so dismissel of this period.
glennd (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 8, 2005report abuse
There is no new material on this CDs´cause it has been released over the passed few years on several releases ?! It is a fake that they write that there is unreleased material ?! TCB.
Ton Bruins (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 8, 2005report abuse
Oh, yes this is my material. "Scratch My Back", "Yoga Is As Yoga Does", "Shake That Tambourine". Ha,ha,ha, no thanks ! Movie crap.
PaulFromFrance (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 8, 2005report abuse
Definitely more interesting than another audience recording. The songs are far from the better he recorded, but it can be funny to have these ones. The cover design is very good and shows Elvis at his best. And, above all, we, at least, have this wonderful "Old Mac Donald" instrumental version ! Something I've waited for years !
