Elvis Sings

 

 

Review by  ElvisNews.com / Kees

 
The CD �Ekvis Sings ...� is the debut release of the �Inspiration� label. Should I be happy with this new kid on the import block?

Design

When I first saw the cover I liked it immediately. A picture of our golden boy from the golden era of Rock And Roll is always a good choice in my book. Inside the booklet some nice and original pictures with a few liner notes on the songs.

Content

A great design, but it�s inside that count. The idea behind this compilation is a combination of themes that on their own would not cover enough songs to fill a complete CD. So no �Rock�, Live�, �Love�, �Gospel�, �Country� but �Beethoven�, �Hawaii melodies�, �European melodies�, �Musical tunes� and a series of covers from the Beatles, Little Richard, Bill Monroe and Bob Dylan. Listening to the compilation we really get some great tracks � you can always hear quality -, some mediocre songs � Elvis recorded a lot of them and just because they fit a theme does not make listening to them fun -, and some bloody awful recordings by our man � no comment needed I think ☺. Just have a look at the track listing to see if your favourites are featured.

The Inspiration label decided to include studio, live, rehearsal and even home recordings. The result is a complete collection but listening to the compilation is not always a pleasure, especially with vague home recordings like �Moonlight Sonata�.

Conclusion

I have mixed feelings about this release. It is a well designed package with some great tracks and unfortunately some bad tracks too. But an addition for your collection � well perhaps for those who collect great covers or want all the �themed� songs nicely put together on two discs and not scattered all through your collection.
