+1. It takes guts to say that around here. I like a number of individual performances here, but FEIM has never been a favorite album of mine. IMO, EP's singing is overrated on some of these tracks.

For me I would say the 1950's material, seeing as how I was introduced to Elvis from That's The Way It Is and Aloha From Hawaii VHS's, but it did not take long to be captivated from the 50's stuff, and it started when I bought the Ed Sullivan DVD Set years ago.
