King Creole was the last movie that Elvis Presley made before he entered the army in the spring of 1958 it was also his last film in black-and-white, as well as his final effort directed by a serious old-time filmmaker. ; and, apart from a few isolated, quirky efforts like Flaming Star, Change of Habit, and Charro, this was the last of his serious movies, in which Presley was trying hard, pushing himself as an actor and, really, all through the score, as a musician. This is reflected in the soundtrack, which is one of the stronger film-related releases of his career. The original 11 songs included a hot title track by. That was a dazzling showcase for.
S guitars as well as Elvis' intense, exciting lead vocal. S electric guitars competing successfully with a five-man brass and reed section. Even "Dixieland Rock, " if not up to the level of those other two numbers, features good playing and a strong performance by Presley, and "Young Dreams" is a decent midtempo number. The slow ballads are where the soundtrack falls flat, "As Long As I Have You" coming up to standard but "Lover Doll" and "Don't Ask Me Why" failing to excite or maintain interest; "Crawfish" can only have been included to bring the album up to the minimum acceptable length for an LP.REVIEW REPRINTED COURTESY OF BRUCE EDER, ALL MUSIC GUIDE. For its extraordinary contribution to the modern music, superb production, craftsmanship, fine musicianship. Revolutionary significance and influence it exerted on numerous generations of musicians, writers and general public, this album was voted one of top-100 albums of all time in one of the largest poll of critics, music reviewers, professionals and producers ever organized: the poll, which was conducted in 1987 by Paul Gambaccini, legendary BBC Radio A&R man, surveyed more than 50 top music professionals. For the complete album listing. TO SEE IF WE HAVE OTHER LISTED ITEMS BY THIS GROUP OR ARTIST. IMPORTANT NOTE: unless otherwise noted, ALL records are graded visually, and NOT play-graded! Grade records under the strong, diffuse room light or discrete sunlight. WE GRADE THE VINYL AS. The original luster is very much intact, and the vinyl shines and sparkles almost like new (BY FAR the best-preserved copy of this rare album we have EVER held in our hands).
The record has a "deep groove" (an indent in the label about 1/2-inch from the edge of the label, which on SOME labels is associated with very early or first pressings). The album comes with original 8 x 10 original, semi-glossy black.
& white publicity photo of Elvis Presley. The record is pressed on a beautiful, thick, inflexible vinyl, which was usually used for the first or very early pressings. Usually, the sound on such thick vinyl pressings is full-bodied, vivid, and even dramatic. Do not expect to obtain such a majestic analog sound from a digital recording!The record comes in the original stock inner sleeve. Mono pressing of this title is much rarer, and by far more. Preferable to its FAKE ("electronically rechannelled") stereo counterpart. We estimate that FAKE stereo copies of this album outnumber monos by a ratio of at least 5:1. True Stereo copies of this album are NOT known to exist. Of course, this is a full-bodied ANALOG recording, and not an inferior, digital recording!! The following flaws or imperfections are noted on the cover. Cover shows JUST A HINT of yellowing on both sides, apparently from aging (BARELY VISIBLE). Cover has a few tiny wrinkles along the spine (nothing significant). (VISIBLE ON BACK SIDE ONLY). NO OTHER IMPERFECTIONS ON THE COVER. No dirt/dust rubbing stains (friction marks caused by rubbing against other covers). No tearing: no chips, dents or nicks on the seams.
No mold or mildew spots. No razor marks, scratches, pressure marks, lines, streaks, or.
No wax, glue, paint or liquid drops on the cover. No glue traces or wax residue. No RIAA stamps or stickers. While you can be rest assured that? Our packaging is careful, sturdy and impact-proof.Please note that damage, loss or theft in transit is always possible, and in the case of some countries even PROBABLE.
