Love Me Tender. All Shook Up. Hound Dog. The Wonder of You. But that, perhaps, was no surprise and no accident. It peaked at 16 just two months after Today had been and gone and missed the Top 20 boat altogether. It was, nevertheless, a fine album, and arguably one of his most underrated, and although some may dispute that, this 40th anniversary Legacy Edition goes a long way to prove otherwise.
Disc one features the entire original album plus 10 undubbed mixes from the sessions, providing an alternate Woman Without Love - Elvis* - Today (CD of the album. If you compare them to the more polished versions of the finished album, they certainly provide an entirely different listening experience. If there is anything missing from this new Legacy Edition, it surely has to be the 3-minute warm-up jam session of Tiger Man that was a highlight of the FTD edition.
With a running time of 67 minutes on disc one, there was certainly room to fit it Woman Without Love - Elvis* - Today (CD as a bonus track. Disc two features live performances from May and June For this 40th anniversary Legacy Edition, the entire constructed concert, which includes a first-ever live performance of T-R-O-U-B-L-Ehas been reassembled and remastered from the original sources, again by Vic Anesini, and thereby offers improved audio quality. The packaging is the usual Legacy Edition presentation that we have come to love and respect.
Like the previous On StageAloha From Hawaii and Recorded Live On Stage In Memphis Legacy Editions, it comes in a six-panel digipak with decent front and back cover art reproduction, and is a huge improvement on the repro quality of the FTD edition which lacked Woman Without Love - Elvis* - Today (CD and looked more like a third generation copy.
Another option, of course, would have been to feature the cover art of the original sleeve or label from The Concert Years LP. The booklet also includes a batch of first rate quality photos, many not seen before, and as was the norm for Elvis official photos and record sleeves during this time of his career, all are concert shots.
For this release, we are treated to a number of various shots of Elvis in different jumpsuits and outfits that were taken during the tour of the bonus disc. There is also the usual batch of memorabilia that we have come to expect with Elvis reissues, and this booklet is no exception.
Included are the usual record labels, sleeves, cassettes, letters and RCA ads. Once again there are no images from The Concert Years album, either front or back sleeve, the box or labels, and no repro of the UK singles. This is such a horrendous song and Elvis should'nt have ever recorded it. It's by far the worst song that he ever recorded in the 's. I write country lyrics and to my mind this is one hell of a write and I would be proud to put my name to this.
The structure though a little off beat works well with the lovely melody Jerry has composed. Good song a personal favourite too. Gorse wrote on August 02, The warmth and compassion in his voice excels on this track, and is part of an Album I enjoy from start to finish.
Love the chorus, and although one perhaps can criticise the considered difference in the impact on the sexes. Natha wrote on August 02, The lyrics are of course horrible and one may indeed wonder why Elvis recorded such a lousy lyrics. On the other hand, while ignoring the lyrics and just flow with his voice and the way he uses his unique way of transmitting a deep concern it is definitely worthwhile and by Woman Without Love - Elvis* - Today (CD better than today's music.
So turn off the radio and listen to Elvis. You will enjoy much more. Rob Wanders wrote on August 02, Woman Without Love. Shake a Hand. Joe Morris. Pieces of My Life. Troy Seals. I Can Help.
