EPE should not allow them to release such a Spankboxed item. I am totally against it and believe also it harms Elvis´icon image and stature ! They rip him apart with new techno sound, and that is not Elvis for us, young fans. If Sony thinks that is the way to go, they are absolutely wrong.

This one was released not in 2007 ,but a few years earlyer. Ive'have this 12". It contains two different versions of That's all right. one with the stary cats. and one mix (9liveremix) .This one you can compaire it with the spancock version. It is a pink vinyl pressing in a white cover with a drawing from elvis. That one you can find (original form)on the backside of his frist lp/cd. This version is new with a different b-side .And now with a picture cover

Well... This was released in 2007 !

I remember the version. But it must reach farther back than 2007. As there was a CD available at ecuadorian record stores dating back to 2004. Or is it another re-mix. I didn't like it to much, for there was a certain "gap" between the band and the singer. It appeared not as very close in the mix...Maybe due to the limitations of the live tape. I'll skip every tape of these...But the stray cats on their own are double dynamite! That's a fact!

So, there we have it then, it is in fact the same remix. It's very well done, and from a live cut, not messing with his Sun version.

As a general rule I disagree completely with these "remixes" Did anyone here ever hear of the redo of the live "That's All Right" by the Stray Cats? It's a damn good cut. They did I think 5 of them on that release, and the others didn't hold up as well, but the Sun 209 cut was really pretty damn good. I don't really look "forward" to hearing this "remix" but I'm a little open to it from the Stray Cats cut of it which to my ears was pretty damn cool.

I guess we all love Elvis based on the original recordings. A Little Less Conversation was a great distraction but enough is enough. In the main Elvis surrounded himself with the best musicians why try and change that. That's The Way It Is not a bad motto in this case, stick to the originals and enjoy the odd gems that seem to appear from time to time. Each to their own but I would rather listen to the "raw" studio out takes without the overdubs any day of the week - it's all about the voice and the performance not some novelty backing track.

I think it's kinda cool that Elvis is still interesting enough to make remixes of. We don't see that with many other artists from the same period.

GibbersGanfa: this comment is the best I read so far on this subject ! Makes a lot of sens!

How many times do I have to hit this point home? No one is sticking a gun to your head and saying you must accept these as the end-all versions. This remix is not even worth pouting over, because everyone seems to have been ignorant enough not to notice that it's only being released on vinyl. Not CD. Not digitally. Just vinyl. NO ONE young buys new vinyl. Aside from collectors, people who grew up with the format and still have their records and players, and fans of alternative rock bands who still have limited releases on vinyl, NO ONE buys vinyl anymore. For the record, I agree, the SUN records should not be touched, and no, I don't believe remixing records from the 50's will bring in new fans, but it's better to just ignore something like this than make a fuss. If you don't like it, don't buy it, don't promote it, don't talk about it like you heard it and are able to interpret it.

I can understand if a remix is done in the sort of style the orginal is in. Like Steve V wrote about the xmas cd. But one will never capture the magic of the originals as done in the fifities, is my humble opinion. I love to listen to those (and Steve, a lot of other fifities stars, Jerry Lee among them). I don't think remixing will improve them nor will this attract new fans.

The non-duet songs on the Christmas CD like Winter Wonderland do sound better than the originals. The sound is crisper & cleaner and sounds like it was recorded with Elvis in 2008. The basic master tracks are all there. They've just added a piano here, an organ there, etc. If anyone thinks that's meddling, so be it , but if you cant hear the improvement, than you need to get your ears checked. I'd like to hear that done with some other recordings. I didn't like the Guitar Man LP because all the instrumental tracks were stripped and then newly added. It didn't sound natural. I think they got it right on the Christmas CD.

djm: Yess sir! In the additional tracks after the duets you do not find any provocative mixes. They are quite close or even more decent to what was the "Guitar Man" album back in the 80's. Some newly added piano lines, in a way I guess Elvis Presley's band would sound like. If that is too much for your ears, how about the partly new arranged and differently accompained "Elvis Th Concert" selections? But a That's Allright Remix is like re-painting Da Vincis "Mona Lisa" with a spray can. These classics should remain intouchable. If anyone likes to do a re-interpretation by himself...go ahead and do it. But leave the 50's version alone. long as EPE doesn't speak a word...they'll go on doing it.

This kind of “remixes” will appear like mushrooms in the next years, mainly here in Europe, since Elvis music from the 50's is now public domain. So no one can prevent this CRAP to happen. If you have this together with the terrible catalogue management that Sony/BMG does, you will see the bright future of Presley legacy...

anyone who states that long black limousine or stranger in the crowd has a poor mix should leave this site now. constant meddling with elvis music is an insult to his legacy. the originals are perfect as they are. and there is plenty of great music out there to listen to than these worthless remixes. christmas duets a decent remix? i`d get my ears cleaned out if i where you.

How horrid! Leave the classics/Sun recordings alone. If the argument for it is to encourage younger people & non Elvis fans to listen to it & like it, it's not going to work. They are not stupid. They know what "classic" means. You will never get kids to listen to classics or appreciate them if you keep messing them up. It reminds me of years ago when some nitwit came out with the idea of putting all the classical music of Mozart, Bach, etc. to a rock background complete with clapping to the beat! It was ridiculous & didn't sell. It didn't get the kids "hooked on classics" like it was intended to do. It's the same with garbage like this.
dgirl (profilecontact) wrote on Feb 6, 2009report abuse
Why do they keep messing with the classics? The reason they are classics is because of the way they were recorded and sounded. How can you improve upon Thats All Right or All Shook Up or Holly's That'll Be The Day or any number of 50's milestone recordings? You can't. Leave them be. You want to take Patch It Up or Power Of My love and give it an upgraded sound? Fine. That may even be fun to listen to. I loved the upgraded Winter Wonderland from the Christmas CD. But it is not fun listening to SUn classics being remixed.

It's a lack of respect. No one would dare do this to Frank Sinatra's recordings!
sitdown68 (profilecontact) wrote on Feb 6, 2009report abuse
Decent remixes as we find them on the Christmas Duets present no problem for me. But if one take 50's tracks and shpaes them with nowaday modern sounds, they lose their context in time, they were recorded in. That's unsensitive in my esteem. No one does the same with singing breakmans Jimmie Rodgers why with elvis? Fast buck?

I agree as well. Stop ruining Elvis' musical legacy. Who cares if today's youth don't want and care to listen to his music. It's their loss, not mine. I'm thankful I've lived my life during his musical lifetime and through the golden years of Pop/Rock music - the 50's - 70's!

I agree to marco31768 exactly and I think Elvis would too. Elvis did thousands of takes to find the right sound for a song. If anybody changes something, for example the loudness of his voice, he was seriously angry. To remix a song is to destroy Elvis´ hard work. Or will there come in future a rap-version of his beloved gospels??

I agree. They need to remake some of the 70's stuff but leave the 50's classics alone. Songs like Stranger In The Crowd, Any Day Now, Long Black Limousine, It's Only love, and If You Don't Come Back could all benefit a new backing track to improve the originally poor mixes. I hear that SONY might be considering doing this with the 69 Memphis sessions.

cool they should do a 70's remix album
