It's not. Just listen to the whole "album" and you'll see:

I agree i thought the top end was a little shaky, but was this supposed to be recorded around 61/62 ? its on home equipment, and he did have a great falsetto around that time ...........

Altough ''the Lost Homerecordings'' is full of fakes, The only 2 that arent fake are ''Moonlight Swim, And the overdubbed version of this track''.
Clearly Elvis

For the ones who want some visual some editing helps :D

If I were a bettin' man, the MS home recording was done by Ral Donner.....certainly not Elvis.

Half the people here cannot tell if it's Elvis singing or not. I've heard 2 songs, Young Love and Moonlight Swim and it's Elvis singing both to my ears.

Young Love/She's Got You, sounds like Elvis to me.

Re: Elvis rare recording !?

Sun Jan 13, 2013 6:44 pm

It's Elvis. Never thought for a minute it wasn't.

Oh dear.

Elvis is on Moonlight Swim. He's certainly not on Young Love.

I just listened to this again for the first time in years. Yes, it's a very good imitation of EP but it's not him singing.

I was wr...wro.... wrong. Poormadpeter is right. Sorry my friend.

The guy on young love isn't ep, but JC a friend of mine, if u look on his channel he does a good job on young and beautiful. just to make that clear..

Thanks for sharing this. I was always under the impression that the fake duet really featured Elvis - after listening to the whole album with some person singing Elvis style I finally know that it's obviously not him. Still quite a good performance and probably by far the best "remake" I have heard so far.

Boy oh my boy...I understand why some here are getting poor Peter really mad...and me too !
Of course this isn't Elvis in that duet fake of Moonlight Swim.
I heard it for the first time years ago on the Colonel's Collection cd and didn't need more than 2 seconds to realize this isn't Elvis.
After all the years, I'm still appalled at the lack of musical judgement of some Elvis fans...

I'm presuming your posting is tongue in cheek?? I never doubted, until I read this thread, that it's Elvis on "Moonlight Swim".

That is definitely Elvis ....100 %. Thanks for posting that Brad.

Again guys, the person singing "Moonlight Swim" is really close to Elvis, but struggles to reach higher notes as Elvis did in this song (and not so high).

Again what I posted months ago:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Again, on first seconds, when the guy sings higher the part "let's go on a moonlight swim....." THIS IS WHAT ETA's USUALLY DO IN HIGHER NOTES TO TRY TO SING LIKE ELVIS DOES.

Close to Elvis, not exactly the same. And just like I stated, the higher notes are obviously not Elvis.

After 39 years of listening to Elvis and about 20 years of owning "The Colonel's collection" CD, it's not obvious to me or most others here. The only thing I ever thought was dubious about the recording was the female vocal part. And where else can we hear the work of this near perfect Elvis soundalike????

I don't give a monkey's knacker what ANYONE says. "Moonlight Swim" IS definitely Elvis. My ears never deceive me when it comes to Elvis.

never say never.
i claim to have a good ear, too, when it comes to elvis.

i don´t think it´s him either in that 1st youtube-clip, that johnny2523 posted, for the same reasons, that renan already explained. i already had this opinion years ago, when that dubious bootleg cd was released by the czech fan club.
the voice comes close, the imitator did a good job. making the recording sound old, helped a lot to fool some people.
