As part of the commemorative releases surrounding the 20th anniversary of Elvis Presley's death, RCA Records released the soundtracks for Jailhouse Rock and Love Me Tender on a single disc, adding several alternate takes as bonus tracks. It was the first time Jailhouse Rock had been released as a complete soundtrack; it had previously been available as a double EP that left off several songs from the movie which is unfortunate, because it boasted one of the most consistent soundtracks from any of Elvis' movies. Similarly, Love Me Tender is stronger than most of his '60s soundtracks, featuring a fine mix of ballads and rockers. (AllMusic Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine )
