Can someone out there tell me why If I can dream is on this album its not what you call a love song is it? Its nice to see Its impossible on there though and i like the cover i cant see anything wrong with it. They always seem to use the same old photos when they release an album of Elvis so its nice to see a different photo for a change. I am not sure if i will buy it. And we all know why they have put an unreleased version of For the good times on there cause they want all the loyal Elvis fans to buy it.They have been doing it for years to us fans

Excuse me for my words. Excuse me for my hard words:
The Cover of this cd "Love, Elvis" is Ignominious, insulting, almost pornographic. They (the company) lower to Elvis to a sexual object as in life was tried, to lowers the respect toward their humanity like mere mercadoctecnic based on to exploit the images of as obliged him to be a sexual object to go to the bed with him. I saw throw the years how Elvis was tried a sexual slave, was forced to be a sexual slave. This front defames his. The songs and as they are ordered is it less important But like a psicology of the masses said: "the mass barely they distinguish the subjective thing and the objective thing. Who offer them an illusion will be their lider, but who be destroyed becomes the enemy them".
And this cover probably will show the real face of Elvis´s fans and collectors when the cd have the debut the january, 25, 2005 And excuse me for my hard words

This is a much better album that 50 Greatest Love songs (which I bought when it came out but haven't even opened). Firsly, 50 songs is toooo many to have on an album. Secondly, this one does not have OLD SHEP. Now, hopefully 50 Greatest Love Songs will disappear of the planet.
I would not have included either I Want You, I Need You, I Love You, Anyway You Want Me, or If I Can Dream. Great to see Doin the Best I Can though. Perhaps the next "Love Songs" album might have a selection of gentle love songs like Tender Feeling, Almost in Love, Forget About The Stars, Am I Ready etc..

Can someone tell me, is this previously unreleased alternate take of "For The Good Times" the same take 3 that was on "Elvis 6363 Sunset"? Is it an alternative alternate take, was the Sunset take mis-numbered, doesn't being issued on FTD count as being released or is the phrase "previously unreleased alternate take" just a mistake (or lie)?

I would love to have this baby also in my collection. I can still remember the times in the early 80's when we were really fighting to get almost any outtake to come out. At nowewdays we are having outtakes of nearly all of his sessions, and some individuals are still complaining of these. So what are we excepting for? New recordings maybe? I have news for you baby. These recordings we have are all we are going to get.

To Mark R: There doesn't have to be an alternate take so everyone will buy. I already have this alternate on the 6363 Sunset Blvd. FTD release, but I'm buying this anyway because I personally enjoy Elvis' love songs. Yes, I have all the others. It's just the way I am. On the other hand: BMG/ Sony/FTD can release sounboards til hell freezes over and I'm not the least bit interested. That's just the way I am, too. But, hey, to each their own.

I have to agree with Mark. This compilation is virtually a replica of Elvis 50 Greatest Love Songs, which was released only a few years ago (so the younger generation have had plenty of opportunity to snap that up). If they really had to bring this out, why not wait a few years, instead of just flooding the market with the same songs packaged differently. Yes Elvis is dead and of course new unreleased stuff is going to be few and far between but lets not rush into re-releasing the same old stuff. A new unreleased version of For The Good Times hardly sends me wild but hey thats the way it is !

IN answer to the doctor I know itis a fre market out there
but you dont get the point I will buy this cd for one track
which I havent heard £15.99 for one track why cant they save it for ftd. I will tell you why money just plain and simple. I would encourage more Elvis releases for the general public but I have been a fan since 1972 and have a large collection of vynl cds ect they all cost money and I dont have an ever lasting bank account and would like to spend my money on new products ftd for collectors & general public, bmg label just straight releases then we know where we are and I will not have to spend my money on one cd for one song or is this to much to ask

I for one may get the Cd when it comes out i think that it is great that so many young persons like Elvis that say's something about the man. I am old enough to remember Elvis having been born on Jan 8 1964. As for for the unrelease For the Good Times song it could be a differnt arangemet for the song which may sound better than the one release before.

Mofoca: thanks for the comments. It's funny, but back in 1972-77, I was teased and put down for liking the music of Elvis while in high school. I just kept buying all the albums I could get my hands on and never looked back. I could not have cared less what people thought-- I connected with Elvis' music in such a personal way that to this day it is the only music that can put a smile on my face no matter what. I hated what happened after his death --all the senseless exploitation. It was so demeaning to such a great artist. I have been dating this wonderful lady for the past four months. Guess what? She never liked Elvis because she had been turned off by all the bad impersonators that came out after his death. I played the Gospel CDs for her and guess what? She's now amazed by his talent. Her favourite new song is "Memories". Nine year olds in my grade four class love his music and ask for it to be played in class during art lessons. How cool is that? I wonder how many of us are out there who suffered put downs for liking Elvis through the years? Who cares. What was it Elvis once said? "Without a song, the world wouldn't have been. So I keep playing the songs." He keeps playing, we keep listening. Thanks for sharing Mofoca22. Keep on rockin'!

well said doc. im 25 years old and wasnt around when elvis was alive but i loved elvis since i 1st heard him as a baby. i plan on keeping the elvis mystique alive and well. went through alot of abuse when i was a school age kid right upon till 5 years ago. and now all these big releases have come out alot of people been giving me credit by saying elvis is the greatest. cuz they never really listend to him till all the releases have come out and after the 68 comeback has come out everyone is addicted to the king again hes the coolest man that ever lived

Mark R: It's a free market system out there and no one is obliged to buy anything. "Love, Elvis" is designed for the new generation of Elvis fans who don't have his catalogue at home on vinyl, cassette, 8 track or CD. I'd only be upset if the record label weren't trying to market Elvis to the next generation. After the success of E1, E2, '68 DVD, Aloha DVD, and so forth, it would be foolish for them not to continue to provide great Elvis collections to the new fans. They will ensure that he continues to be a marketable commodity. I did not buy the last Gospel CD because I already had the Amazing Grace double CD set which contained all the tracks being re-issued on Ultimate Gospel. That being said, Ultimate Gospel was a great intro to any new fan that wasn't around for the first collection. I think we should be giving the record label nothing but credit for finally giving Elvis the artistic respect he always deserved but seldom got until the last five years. Well done -- and keep giving fans new and old the great new releases. Just make sure to keep impressing the new fans with quality releases and Elvis will continue to be a musical force for all eternity, even after all of us older fans have also gone to the "milky white way" in the sky and joined elvis at the eternal jukebox!
