Which version of The Wonder of You?

Sat Jul 12, 2003 2:26 pm

Can someone please tell me which version of this song is included on The Live Greatest Hits CD of 2001? I suspect that it is a version from August 1970, but if anyone can clear this one up, I would be grateful. It's starting to keep me awake at night.

Thanks to all of those who have replied. I think that is fairly unanimous. I can "rest easy at night" to quote Big Boss Man. Off-topic a little, being a Newcastle United footie fan, 13 August 1970 was the very day Alan Shearer was born.

I had this version of The Wonder of You on the other day, and I just felt that this version lacked punch compared to other performances on that CD.

Stephen, it may not be quite as good as the official single version, but I'll take it over over any rushed 1975 version any day... 8)

In general, I think us Elvis fans have never been served than the last ten years. The hardcore collector had the essential Elvis series and more recently FTD, while the novice fan can choose between some excellent sounding and generous 1-2-3- or 4cd compilations. In between there are superb packages like the different box sets (Close Up, TT&F, TTWII) and different themed or upgraded/remastered cd's (Suspicious Minds 2cd, Great Country Songs, upgraded Promised Land and Moody Blue for example).
