Huh? Maybe "luster" is the word you're looking for... not "lackluster".

Still a great voice, but the smoothness he had on such songs as Soldier Boy or They Remind Me Too Much Of You has been gone a while by then. But that's only natural with time and he smoked much more often - we see on many candids - than he did in the early sixties. That doesn't help keeping a silky voice. The more if he had a sore throat at the time of recording. Elvis was human after all.
Actually Tornado, it's quite unusual for a man at age 34 to lose so much of the "luster" his voice had at 27 years old. We've had threads on this topic of his voice many times through the years here. Part of it is he was changing his style a bit to a more R&R style but still the difference in voice for ballad singing, between ages 28 and 34 or 35, is startling.
