In some fifteen years Elvis Presley has completed over thirty Hollywood
films and as his millions of fans know, his movie debut in 1956 in "Love
Me Tender" provided that the Presley legend which had begun on record
could also make an impact on the silver screen.
Not that anyone should have been surprised at Presley's immediate
relationship with the camera. His presence, personality and the sheer
impact of Colonel Tom Parker's management were the perfect ingredients
for Hollywood and they were duly snatched up by producers at all of the
The Presley films, apart from providing Elvis with an incredibly wide
range of roles, have given his fans plenty of musical memories, many of
which appear on this album. The title track comes, of course, from the
Paramount film of 1967, only one of the two films Presley made during
that year, quite a change from the previous busy year when he completed
no less than four major films.
Records, films, concert and the very rare television appearances keep
the Presley legend alive and thriving nearly twenty years after "Heartbreak
Hotel" gave him his first million seller. It's a legend that nobody can
question and when you listen to the variety of songs on "Easy Come, Easy
Go" they go a long way to explaining why the Presley presence is one of
the most powerful in the whole of show business.
