I agree. But then again, I have never been embarrassed by anything Elvis put on an album post the movie soundtracks. There are songs that I don't like as much as I do others, but I have never been embarrassed by anything recorded by Elvis beyond the movie years.

I dig the man's music.

That said, I still think Moody Blue was a considerable step up from E P Boulevard - there is nothing here that finds Elvis's voice in such bad shape as Never Again, Love Coming Down and others, and the (mostly) country feel of the album hangs together well.



I was thrilled to have Little Darlin on there.


In the context of the show, I agree , its a lighthearted moment for those in attendance to enjoy. To include it as a track on a major album release its ridiculous and shows just how little RCA was able to get out of the studio from Elvis. It doesn't belong on the album IMO. Moody Blue was one of the most hodge podge releases of his career. There are Camdens that are better albums.

Dont agree with this at all.
I have always enjoyed this release.....even today and I cant wait for the FTD edition.
This album is one of the few that I really like the overdubs done by FJ (70s).......even the silly LD works for me.....but the soundboard versions does not.

Old McDonald, Queenie Wahine's Papaya, Yoga Is As Yoga Does. These songs don't make you cringe or feel embarrassed especially with other people in the room?

Awwww. That's just Rob being funny. He does that to everyone. He's just playing!
Rob is one of the few people here who consistently makes me LOL. Laughing out loud is one thing but to LOL is major.

Please don't tell everyone that.

Everyone, please ignore InheritTheWind's post. I don't fool around when it comes to this board. I take it very seriously! I am never "just playing."

TINML got it completely right. I am indeed -- a dick.

Great version of "Doin The Best I Can," which following on from Vol 1 is more of the same with the great Jordanaires.
"Frankfurt Special" has the "let's get started before this train runs out of juice" line on the breakdown.

The booklet is gorgeous with great photos too:

Thanks for the info. How is that take 14 of Shoppin Around?

Take 14? Ah yes! It speeds along at a jaunty pace - enjoyable!
Love the instrumentals on CD-2. "Whistling Blues"with it's super jazz/blues guitar.

You know - G.I Blues the movie was never a favourite. However since the first vol 1, and now this excellent FTD VOL 2 - the period has become one of my favourite periods. Just fascinating and fantastic music.

Thanks for getting back. I'm really looking forward to getting this one real soon as well as the On Stage. My old Madisons will go on ebay someday soon.

How many times i had the shows before... several times.

The original Baxters("Walk a mile in.." and "Electryfying") and "True love travels".. (Laurel).. exiting times, to hear it the first time ever!!
"Rock in black"(SR Records) for the combined opening night..."Closing night" (Graceland) for the combined closing show.
Nice to have.

The two Madison versions; until then, the go to versions.

Rebooked at the International;(Backdraft) cool box, different sounding then the Madisons and nice extras.

And now, i'm expecting them on this FTD....
Altough the shows are bootlegged many times before, i still will get them, even when the sound is slightly improved.

I envy you guys who does'nt heard these shows before though, you are in for a treat!!

Hey! Queenie Wahinee is ACE! :o

Can't wait for my albums to arrive. The pictures of the packages (G.I. Blues 2 and On Stage season) look absolutely gorgeous! :P

Great sound on G.I Blues Vol 2. A very enjoyable release. Great to have the recently found acetate of 'Shopping Around' tk14 too. G.I Blues insert ending with Elvis telling Hal Wallis he missed the ending (take 7/M). "Frankfort Special" remake CD-2 has hints of "Mystery Train"

Love the artwork and all the photos -

I wondered if anyone else would pick up on that. He could have easily gone into "Mystery Train" with that intro, and I kept waiting for him to.

Re: New FTD's delivered

G.I. Blues Vol 2 sounds phenomenal, and is the best I have heard this material ever sound! Very warm, dynamic with a liquid clarity. Fantastic mixes and mastering. The credits note it was "mixed by Vic Anesini." "Mastered by Sebastian Jeansson and Vic Anesini." FTD has really been on a roll lately.

Looking forward to the American Sound Vol 3 -- will that be 2 discs or 1?

Enjoying G.I.Blues vol 2 right now.It's never been a favourite of mine yet I find my foot is involuntary tapping along to the music and I couldn't help but sing along to Didja Ever.Perhaps if Elvis had only done two or three of these lighthearted musicals (Gi Blues,Blue Hawaii,Viva Las Vegas maybe)they would be held in higher esteem instead of being buried in the formula.Hindsight and what if's notwithstanding.
Along with vol 1 a great package from FTD with fantastic sound,even the outtakes have been worked on with great care.
Love the colour coded In and Outtakes in the booklet making it very easy to follow.
There are even pictures of the sheet music to get poormadpeter all excited !
