||Original movie sound recordings.|
Liner notes by Pavel
In this second part of our series we get deeper into the sixties. The quality of
the movies went gradually down the drain, but not necessarily the quality of the
film music. The songs in "Follow That Dream" were superb. but for many years we'
ve missed a different version of "Sound Advice" and also the short version of
the traditional "On The Top Of Old Smokey". Already an opening song in "Kid
Galahad"- "King Of The Whole Wide World" with extra instruments is a real
pleasure. The same can be said about "Riding The Rainbow", that had to be
specially edited for this CD. There's lots of interesting stuff to be found in
"Girls!, Girls!, Girls!" and also in "It Happened At The World's Fair". Who can
forget the totally different "truck" version of "Take Me To The Fair"? Elvis
collectors have been looking for years for good quality versions of some of the
"Fun In Acapulco" songs, specifically the "duet" version of "Mexico", and
"There's No Room For Rhumba In A Sports Cars". Even in "Kissin' Cousins", in my
humble opinion one of the most horrible movies that Elvis ever made, we can find
some interesting versions. Finally there is "Viva Las Vegas" with Ann Margret.
an unforgettable version of "Come On Everybody", an equally memorable mix of
"Today, Tomorrow And Forever" and "What'd I Say" with the charming "The Climb"
in between — with "guest stars" The Forte Four. Hope you'll enjoy this one too!
