    Vital Elvis

    The review above understandably bemoans the lack of Sun (Records) sides on this uptempo collection. Now we know why the best Sun recordings are not here. RCA saved 'em all (Baby Let's Play House, Mystery Train, Good Rockin' Tonight, That's All Right, and a couple of others that are very good, if not as important as those listed) for a companion collection that is easily as impressive, namely Elvis R&B. Problem solved--get both. When Elvis was rockin' up a storm or singing the R&B songs he loved (and which knocked down the color barrier in music in his early days), he is arguably at his most alive and essential. Music does not make one want to live more than this music, which is full of fun. I expected to be let down by some of the later tracks on this album that were originally from Elvis' movie soundtracks, but this is not the dreck from that period. Maybe the songs are slighter confections, but Elvis seems to be enjoying himself to the full, and, I will bet, so will you. This sort of collection by Elvis comes very close to being the best of American pop music and rock and roll. If someone were to assert it was, I sure would not bother to argue.
