Today

I voted "Today" 10 GREAT tracks in ONE album. :D

Sat Oct 28, 2006 1:00 pm

Out of those listed, Elvis Is Back gets my vote.

Sat Oct 28, 2006 1:43 pm

I went for 'From Elvis In Memphis' from the list. E in 69' was fantastic! :smt023

The 4 essential Elvis albums to take anywhere are:

Elvis
Elvis Is Back!
From Elvis In Memphis
Elvis Country

Maybe its because they all feature his name in the title eh!? ;-)

Really though, Elvis is a better album than Elvis Presley, its his first real album where as Elvis Presley isa compilation of old and new material.

Question: why exclude His Hand In Mine but include the other 2 gospel albums?

Sat Oct 28, 2006 4:50 pm

:o OH BOY
it's so hard to pick just one, i just love them all , they all great albums
Can't choose just one...
SUCH A HARD QUESTION :wink:

If I had to choose from those selections, it would be 'Elvis Country', but to be fair there are more than a couple of contenders in your list, Jeanno.

How about a poll for best studio session(s)

Sat Oct 28, 2006 9:05 pm

I voted for "Pot Luck" because I love his voice on those songs. Also, it's the only studio album he ever cut where I liked ALL the songs the first time I heard them and STILL like them 40+ years later.

Sat Oct 28, 2006 9:30 pm

I would have added His Hand In Mine to the list, which is another favourite of mine.
Still, I'm with Doc on this, there are more than one.
I would also like to include the "lost" albums. "For The Asking" and "Tomorrow Is A Long Time" on the list.
Still, it's a tie between the following:

Elvis Presley
Elvis
Elvis Is Back
From Elvis In Memphis
Elvis Country

Then:

His Hand In Mine
Something For Everybody
He Touched Me
How Great Thou Art
Today

They are all great!

Tue Oct 31, 2006 3:27 am

To each his own - but - do 6 members really believe that TODAY was Elvis' best album :!:
