A funny soundtrack?

Mon Jan 18, 2016 11:24 pm

As was pionted out to me in another thread, I own far from every FTD released.

As most of Elvis soundtrack albums are far from top notch, which one contains the most fun outakes/banter?
Which one should I get for a good time with Elvis? 8)

Not sure about banter, but you can't go wrong with the 2 Jailhouse Rock FTDs. It's probably the best soundtrack he recorded.

the Stay Away Joe sessions are a recommendation

I can't testify as to the quality of the banter/between-songs-speech, as I always tune out everything but the music, but the Double Trouble FTD is a must-listen for any fan of the 60s soundtracks. All of the outtakes are superior to the master takes, and it offers the most fascinating "what if?" of any FTD I've heard.

I wouldn't be without any of them. Get them in the order you enjoy the original masters.

Those Beach Shack outtakes are pretty funny .."what you think I am Dumb, de dumb de dumb" - Spinout - FTD
Elvis was in a good mood and having a lot of fun at these February 1966 sessions at the Radio Recorders Studio B - Hollywood, California.

The seventh FTD extended movie soundtrack release in 2004 by FTD - Spinout

I also favor the 1999 compilation session CD
"Cut Me And I Bleed" by the Double "G"

There was a topic many years ago listing all the funny takes on each FTD but cant find it.
As mentioned Spinout has some really funny moments,same goes for Paradise Hawaian Style and Good Times.
Stay Away Joe FTD has a great&funny take of Us Male that really makes me laugh everytime I hear it (the "ditch" take)

One funny take that surprisingly didn't get included on the FTD Spinout is take 4 of Smorgasbord with the laughing 'I like 'em bald' ending.
