Pete Dube wrote:But even Almost In Love was something different for Elvis at the time Greg. It's a style of ballad more suited to Sinatra or Dino, yet Elvis pulls it off admirably. There was no style of popular song out of his reach. The only song in Elvis' catalogue that's somewhat similar is All That I Am, but Almost In Love is much more sophisticated. The majority of the late period movie tracks (Stay Away; All I Needed Was The Rain; Goin' Home; A Little Less Conversation; Edge of Reality; Almost In Love; Clean Up Your Own Back Yard; Almost; Charro; Let's Forget About The Stars; Change of Habit; Let's Be Friends; Let Us Pray) are a quantum leap beyond what he'd been doing in the mid-60's.

We must rember that the background was pre-recorded and Elvis went along with it.
At his stage he just wasn't caring.

I can tell you I'd have gotten awfully bored of the King a long time ago if I didn't find a way to rummage through his catalog and find ways to enjoy things that don't always enjoy critical acclaim...
