I thought I would share this, I know everyone but me probably has these albums but this is a great CD I brought in Woolworths UK for the brilliant sum of £2.00 yes £2.00 Bargain! 8) Well there is a catch, track 9 (I’m gonna sit right down and cry) jumps badly, so I took it back to the shop because this is a new track to me. I got the sales assistant to open up two others CDs and play them on the shop speakers but they all had the same fault! Hence the £2.00 I guess.

The rest of the 24 tracks are all fine, if you are on a tight budget like me its still a bargain and a real pleasure to hear tracks I’ve never heard before. Including the original of “When by blue moon turns to gold again” a joy having only heard the 68 version before, blown away by the ending.

It’s on the Exceed label part of the Pickwick group.

Cheers

I guess this just validates the old saying: "You get what you pay for."

To be fair, BMG do have to double packs out - one with Elvis Presley, and Elvis, and the other with 68 Special and Aloha. Both are available for a fiver or so....

I bought this and other low budget Elvis releases so my daughter can play them in her bedroom.

She is only 6 and loves Elvis.

Glad you found it useful.

You're lucky my six year old daughter only listens to 'Pop Party' and Mica :roll: Can't get her in to Elvis, maybe shes just had too much exposure. :lol:

I have tried not to give my daughter too much exposure. Introduced here to a few of the movies and the catchy songs (teddy bear etc). but now she is into blue suede shoes, hound dog etc. There might come a time when she says enough?

She also listens to Mica and all todays stuff - I do to though!

Ok, I admit it I do! :D She also like the new Prince Album that we got free the Sunday News paper. Great value.


Also on a trip to Woolworths again, I found them selling DVD's Blue Hawaii, & King Creole for £4.49 or about. I guess this is also good value too.

It should've been a freebie!!!

For once why can't BMG/SONY try a gimmick like Prince (or the artist formly
known as Prince) had with a England newspaper recently and provide an
Elvis CD as a freebie complete with an educational booklet highlighting EP's
achievements and statue er...stature in the music world?. That'll be an effective way to promote Elvis
to the masses.
