Steve, you are very mild regarding Blue Hawai, and GI blues.
Steve V (profilecontact) wrote on Jun 7, 2006report abuse
Rob Wanders - I agree. I would also include as watchable - Wild In The Country, Follow That Dream, and Viva Las Vegas, maybe Blue Hawaii , GI Blues & Kid Galahad. The point is no movies after 1962 (other than Viva Las Vegas) are easy to sit thru with the exception of the documentaries.

Actually I dislike most of the movies more than I dislike the music of it. I can listen to a song like Song of the Shrimp, but I cannot watch 26 of the 33 movies, because of their stupidity and simplicity. (lets name the 7 good ones: Love me tender, Loving you, Jailhouse rock, King Creole, Flaming star, TTHII, On tour). Of course songs like Old Macdonald, Confidence, He's your uncle, not your aunt.. etc are really awful and not worth listen to (at least for my ears), but an artist should be just on his best work and not on his worst work. And Elvis made a lot of best work!!!

Well,well Hans Otto, so you decide what childish statements are ? I know that Ernst will document and preserve ALL Elvis music. I have no problems with that. You guys taken this all too serious I guess. I just don't like this release Clambake, that's all. (11 times) And once again I don't complain Hans Otto, I give my opinion. Just enjoy Clambake now !! LoL.
Hans Otto (profilecontact) wrote on Jun 6, 2006report abuse
To Ton Bruins. You have received quite a bit of criticism during this last discussion. I believe it may be because
a) Most of the other fans understand that the FTD label was created by Ernst J. to document and preserve ALL of Elvis' musical legacy - not just the most popular and "safe" tunes among the majority of fans like yourself. (By the way: The FTD CD's are not something Sony BMG are using to "milk" money from the fans. Ernst, Simon, Keven etc. are all having to make these FTD CD’s during this in their spare time, so I doubt that the main motivation behind FTD is making serious money...because they are not.)
b) Most other participants to these pages also try to express their views by writing an opinion - and then present a short argument to why they think so and so. Of the 58 contributions to this discussion, you have written 10 of them! And they all just seem as repetitions of your negative complaints that you don't like these new soundtrack CD's. No need for stating this ten times, is there? I believe this forum will be best off if we all try to write informed and intelligent arguments, and not just negative (and sometimes childish) statements.

Elvis was a master at overstatement. IF indeed he became physically ill from his movies and their songs (which I doubt) I'm sure 1 million USD per picture and 50% of the profits off the top bought plenty of Pepto-Bismol to make his tummy all better. You people really have to get over this "poor Elvis" syndrome.
Ton Bruins (profilecontact) wrote on Jun 6, 2006report abuse
Yes right Elvis knew that for a fact. In interviews he stated that he got fysically ill from those silly movies and those silly songs.
Steve V (profilecontact) wrote on Jun 6, 2006report abuse
My opinion is - If Elvis had never recorded 75% of the movies songs from the 60's he would have been a much happier artist. He knew they were mostly trash.
Ton Bruins (profilecontact) wrote on Jun 6, 2006report abuse
That's why the link say's "give your opinion"...some people feel offended too soon. 90 % of the movie period is a shame to Elvis' career. Just my feelings and my opinion.

Frenchguy, you are taking things personally. As I said, we agree to disagree. That's what this forum is about, people's opinions. You said you couldn't stand critics bashing Elvis movies and I defended my view. Most of the films were made on the cheap because they knew people would see them regardless of quality and not one lost profit. You call some of his songs "Low Points", I agree with Ton and think some were trash. I'm sorry if I offended you.
frenchguy (profilecontact) wrote on Jun 5, 2006report abuse
PJones, because I dare to say I like that little bitty Song of the shrimp, you make me feel like I were under arrest ! Be reassured: neither is Old mac donald my cup of tea, nor are its likes from Elvis mid-sixties movies. But, when I have a basket full of not first class cherries, I try to pick up the good ones, and not to throw the whole basket away. No ill feelings...!
PTCJones (profilecontact) wrote on Jun 4, 2006report abuse
Well, Frenchguy I guess we will have to agree to disagree. Song Of The Shrimp was just one example and I am really glad you like the ditty. I could also have mentioned Old McDonald, but I suspect you may like that too. Regarding the bonus songs, the reason they are not trash is because they were deliberately put in to increase the marketability of the album. This enforces the argument that the soundtracks were poor to begin with.
Dan The Man (profilecontact) wrote on Jun 4, 2006report abuse
Thanks Ton, I feel fine as it is. Good constructive criticsm is healthy, but just calling the movies trash is a little thin I Think. No hard feelings.
frenchguy (profilecontact) wrote on Jun 4, 2006report abuse
PJones,what you say fits in with what I mean. What I want to underline is that you can't call overall the Clambake soundtrack trash. We all know it's one of the weakest. I personally never listen to Confidence, Who needs money or Hey Hey Hey. But apart from them, there are reasonably better songs.And when you dig Elvis, you can't only and always listen to King Creole, Elvis is back, Pot luck or From Elvis in Memphis ! And what about the so-called bonus songs of the Clambake album? Are they trash too ? I simply can't stant these systematic critics the moment you discuss the subject movie albums. And once for all, Song of the shrimp is for me a lovely little calypso. And contrary to, for example, Yoga is or Queenie wahine, it is so well sung...!
PTCJones (profilecontact) wrote on Jun 4, 2006report abuse
You know, we have to be realistic here. Much as we all love Elvis' music, he made some dire songs in the movies and I expect he would be the first to have admitted that. The man that made Worldwide smash hits like Hound Dog, Jailhouse Rock etc reduced to Song Of The Shrimp and Queenie Wahine's Papaya would certainly not be happy with that output from the mid 60's onwards. That's not to say the songs weren't fun and right for the particular movies. Frenchguy, you picked some good tracks from Clambake and you could probably pick 1 or 2 tracks from any movie that are good, but from what I read about the making of that movie, he wasn't interested in it at all. Even today, I have a hard time enjoying listening to Confidence.
frenchguy (profilecontact) wrote on Jun 4, 2006report abuse
Movie trash ? Since my younger days back in the early sixties, I'd picture myself as a critical one.After 1964, when Elvis began to neglect his non movies recordings, I used to become somewhat disappointed with some movie material, especially around the mid-sixties. But, and this makes me totally disagree with the likes of Ton,I never considered Elvis film music being trash. Ok, Paradise and some others are real low points...But, if I had to pick up my best-loved film songs, I'd come to the amazing number of, at least, 100 ! And I keep only one song from Clambake in my list (You don't know me). Moreover, I think that if not great songs, The girl I never loved, A house that has everything, How can you lose, are very listenable songs. I have to admit I sometimes take more pleasure listening to them, than to most of the numerous live versions of Hound dog and co in the seventies. So stop that mourning and appreciate, like I do, how lucky we are with all these FTD releases. See, there's Something for everybody !

Guys, the real problem is everyones right and everyones wrong. I'm an old man. I bought every release when it came out, from Rock 'n Roll on HMV right up to today. I remeber buying Clambake, liking the bonus songs and you don't know me, indifferent to the rest and then playing 'Elvis is Back' to remind myself who the King really was. In the mid '70s I was paying £26 for boots of 'New years eve' etc. Now we're paying a lot less for the FTDs. In general great sound, great packaging and FTD are keeping the name Elvis alive. I buy them all, being old thankfully I can afford them, but of the next releases 'Elvis Presley' will hit the CD player first, then the live offering and I'll read the booklet for Clambake, play a few tracks, cringe and put 'Elvis Presley' back on. In my opinion if you can afford the FTDs, get the lot, burn all the good songs from the films onto CDR, should give you 2-3 CD-rs and enjoy them. EP was only a human being he did great things, good things and some real trash, such is the nature of a man

I am also very happy to be an Elvis fan with the FTD label. But we have the right to be critical and we also have the right to call something trash. That's it. But I guess that there are no critical Elvis fans left anymore and when I give some critical remarks I am a bad boy...that's sad.

How can it be that every time an FTD is announced it's called trash, sloppy ect. Who can call themselves arbiter of taste? Why all these negative comments, what's the point? Be happy that you save yourself some money and leave the "trashy" for the rest of us. When I look at my 55 FTD's and 3 books I have on my shelf, I feel it as a privilege that I have the opportunity to buy these. Not that I hear them all several times, I have my favorites, but it's the oportonity to buy that I find priceless.

Hey, nobody says "Clambake" was an alltime great (far from it) but remember guys FTD is a collectors label, good and bad. Can anyone tell me all the concerts are that great? And this is coming from a huge Elvis 70's fan.....
Rob Wanders (profilecontact) wrote on Jun 1, 2006report abuse
well folks, To my opinion Clambake has got actually only 2 really bad songs: "Confidence" and "Who needs money" (Who doesn't!). I think they are both at the top of the top 10 shits. "Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey..." comes close too to that, But beautiful songs like: You dont know me, a house that has everything, the Girl I never loved (special memories for me, only changed the title in The Guy I never loved) and I always enjoy: How can you loose. But to be honest: looking more forward to "I found my thrill."
Sean Ryan (profilecontact) wrote on Jun 1, 2006report abuse
Those who have the outtakes of beachshack, datin' and a dogs life must have laughed when Elvis was heard recording them. all bad songs but brilliant to listen to elvis making fun of them . to have outtakes of songs like these is great news.

There seems to be a trend here that has been going on now for quite a few years. If any of you look back through some copies of the Elvis Monthly where fans could express there views, during the late sixties a great many of them did little other than say how bad Elvis' films were, how bad his songs were and so on. There should be more support for our boy instead of being so harsh on his work all the time. I feel that the FTD label is great and although some people may not like the soundtracks, there are a great many out there that do. I personally love the way that they have reproduced these classic albums in the 7" covers and there are a great many fans that will miss out on having these albums if they are not released. I know that Clambake has been released before on CD, but this will be far superior to the other CD release. I think it is great to have this material available and packaged in the way they are. I will be buying Clambake, as I grew up with Elvis' films and I love them and I love hearing the various takes that are available. Keep up the good work at FTD.

You are over reacting here heartburnmotel. I´ll always tell when I think something is good and I´ll do it when I think something is not good. Simple as that. What is your opinion by the way...I liked many FTD releases like Memphis Sessions, Today, Made In Memphis, (minus homerecordings) One Night In Vegas, Jungle Room Sessions, Elvis Is Back, most of the soundboards, etc. So what´s your point.

I was 10 when Elvis made G.I. Blues. 18 when Change of Habit came out. The movie years is when I grew up. Nothing made a bigger impression on me than Elvis on the silver screen. Certainly not the 4 mop tops from Liverpool. I'll take the Stones any day. Oh, sorry. I got off topic. Anyway, I enjoy all the soundtracks in varying degrees depending on the strength of the material. That's The Way It Is. I'm sure I've listened to Blue Hawaii more than any Elvis album in my collection and I have ALL the official releases. When I've had a bad day and need a lift I reach for a '60s soundtrack album.
Steve V (profilecontact) wrote on Jun 1, 2006report abuse
MARK64 - This is how music was in 1967?? You kidding? These songs show just how out of touch Elvis was musically in 1967. Just look at the pop charts for that year. Yes, he made millions from these movies & soundtracks, THAT WAS THE PROBLEM!!! The Colonel saw the golden goose with Blue Hawaii and didnt want to kill it so he made Elvis grind out these things while passing up dramatic roles and preventing good songwriters from getting their songs to him. Thank God things came to a halt in 1968. Yes JerryNodak - Yoga is arguably the worst song as well, but I think as a 'whole', Clambake is the worst movie soundtrack and worst movie title song of all. My opinion of course.

There's nothing wrong with personal preferences. It's just not that hard to know you very well after endlessly pointing out what you dislike. Maybe it tells something about how predictable and irrelevant your comments have been for a long time.

There are always people here who say that other people are moaning or complaining. When someone dislikes a release then he/she is not complaining/moaning. That is just his opinion. Complaining is something different. Everybody has the right do his opinion here. So buy this release when you like it but don't say that someone is complaining because he just thinks that the Clambake release is trash..And yes his voice was good, also during Clambake but the songs are awful. (my opinion and I am not complaing, lol)
Gladyslove (profilecontact) wrote on Jun 1, 2006report abuse
I for myself like the new coming Cds. Clambake isn´t really one of the best movie also not the songs but a song like You don´t know me is a winner. Sadly we get no outtakes from the rest of the first Elvis album ! But I will enjoy it, indeed. The concert song list is not special but Elvis is surely in a good mood at that time. Next release on the Classic albums: How great thou art? or His hands in mine.

It's not FTD's fault that Elvis recorded the bad songs. The blame lies with Elvis & the Coloniel. Elvis could've said no to these bad songs. FTD can only release what material Elvis & the Coloniel left them. I blame Elvis for not putting a stop to this nonsense early on & I blame the Coloniel for allowing these bad songs near Elvis in the first place. Leiber & Stoller should have been the main songwriters for Elvis movie songs in the 1960's. We would be spared from songs like "Confidence". I for one am happy that we have the FTD label. And I'm happy FTD is releasing these CDs whether it be another live collection or more movie soundtracks. As painful as it is to listen to Elvis sing songs like "Confidence" or rush through another 70's live version of "Hound Dog", I still want these songs released. As bad as I can't stand songs like "He's Your Uncle Not Your Dad", I still want the outtakes in my collection. I know if these songs get too painful to listen to, I can always reach for the CD "Reconsider Baby". FTD keep these releases coming.

It really worries me to hear such bitter and negative comments. Hard core collectors like the new music on these releases, plus the superior and lavish packaging. Nobody is being "milked" as it is up to the individual wether he/she purchases such product. To describe this material as "junk" is way over the top. If the FTD label were releasing "The Elvis Presley seance" or something, then yes, you could say that perhaps. But, this is a label which caters to Elvis collectors. We are lucky to have it.

elpete. Why? Because the songs are God-awful thats why. If it wasn't for the bonus songs & You Dont Know Me, this LP would have been the worst soundtrack of Elvis' career. Those of you who discovered this music much later have no idea how hard it was to be into Elvis in 1967 with releases like this. To compare this movie and soundtrack with Follow That Dream & Kid Galahad , wow! This is 5 years later and the quality of product was way downhill. But the argument here is FTD used to be a great label with quality releases & now I feel they are milking us with releases like this and so many live shows. But I guess it pleases the hard core fan who will buy it all.

Lets not forget ftd aim is to rerelease all the sound tracks on these special double cds. I would like them to release them in some sort of order. that also goes with the classic albums too. Soundboarda are all great to me even though they are mostley the same songs its the banter of Elvis I like to listen to each release is different but the same if you know what I mean so come on bmg/ftd put them in some kind of order before I die too. Elvis Presley cd seems ok with all outakes just hope they dont mess with the sound remember the original sound is the best the way our man left it. I would like all the Gi Blues sessions released by ftd it would make a great box set theres that many also Blue Hawaii To,cant wait till July another three to listen to on the way to work.

Well guys, a major part of the intention behind the FTD label is not only to give you instant enjoyment hearing your favorite tunes, but also to document Elvis' musical legacy. I may agree with you that Clambake was not his finest artistic moment. On the contrary. But I'm always glad that Ernst, Simon and the all the other people at FTD find, preserve and present rare outtakes. If you don't want to buy it, then fine. Other folks, like me, are however grateful given the oportunity to by it. This release will in fact show us more of the true story behind Elvis' roller coaster career, than another standard 70's live show recording. Let's broaden our minds, gentlemen.

It's not a big problem, as every new live show is always welcome, but Midnight Shows are usually better. Anyway, can't wait to get them both, and second hope the covers will be good.
