His two last albums on one CD. It's a winner.
I have always loved Elvis in the 70's. The 50's was rockin', the 60's was swinging, and in the 70's we saw a more mature Elvis. He sang more powerful ballads, with heavier orchestral overdubs. Recording his last studio songs at his home Graceland in 1976, they were some of the strongest he ever recorded. I really love Danny Boy, strong and powerful. And who can forget the hits Moody Blue and Way Down along with the brilliant Hurt. Please forgive me Roger Whitaker, but the way Elvis performed The Last Farewell is the best version ever recorded.
On this CD, we also get recodings made live by the King in 1977. You gotta love Little Darling and the awesome If You Love Me (Let Me Know). RCA have omitted Let Me Be There for this release. This is because it was recorded in 1974 and released on the LP Elvis Recorded Live On Stage In Memphis. I never could figure out why they added it to the Moody Blue LP. There were so many other songs that would have been better on this album. I for one would have loved Elvis' version of America (The Beautiful).
Elvis' last album, Moody Blue, was released just a few weeks before he passed away. It's part of music history, and should be a part of any Elviscollection. It's not complete without this one. And here you get it with From Elvis Presley Boulevard, Memphis, Tennessee.Read full review
