Presley Elvis - Greatest Hits Vol 1 (Limited Deluxe 25th Anniversary Edition) (Käytetty CD)


Out now is the 25th anniversary of Greatest Hits Vol. 1″. All material on this album dates from Elvis’ comeback period, 1967 – ’73. It’s an album that makes sense: the songs fit well together and the performances are uniformly strong on a wide variety of material, with Elvis putting his own indelible stamp on them, regardless of the genre. In fact, if you would want to introduce a friend to the magic of The King’s music, then this album would be a very good starting point. It’s interesting to note that several of the mixes / versions heard here are unavailable elsewhere. In some instances, these mixes are far superior, a case in point being ”Steamroller Blues” from the Aloha rehearsal show (01-12-’73). This mix really captures the excitement of Elvis’ original performance, whereas the mix as released on ”The Alternate Aloha” in 1988 is best forgotten.

This album also contains what is arguably the best-ever Elvis version of ”What’d I Say”, a cleverly edited live-recording from Elvis’ August 23rd, 1969 Midnight Show performance at the International Hotel in Las Vegas, NV. Since this was usually the penultimate song of the show, Elvis and the band would really let loose, creating a true frenzy at the shows by extending the song with repeated verses and extra solos. Though this was a real showstopper at those early Vegas shows, the excitement of these long versions does not really come across as well on record, and it was a sensible decision by Joan Deary to edit it for release. This track really captures the intensity and raw energy of Elvis’ 1969 comeback. Another highlight is Elvis’ tremendous revival of ”Big Hunk O’ Love” from the February 17th, 1972 Dinner Show at the Las Vegas Hilton. Listen out for Elvis’ humming along to Glen D. Hardin’s piano-solo! In 1989, RCA Australia released ”Greatest Hits Vol. 1″ on CD in a limited edition, but that release is now very hard to get. There have been many requests for this album to be issued again, and Victrola is proud to be able to present this release in a deluxe fold-out digipack, with relevant photos and in-depth liner-notes. We were able to work from an original mastertape as sent by RCA to one of its international offices, and the sound quality is exceptional. All tracks were digitally remastered using 24 bit technology. This deluxe edition will be pressed in very limited quantities, so it’s bound to become a true collector’s item.”
