Elvis' Gold Records, Vol. 5

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bruce Eder
Sixteen years after Elvis' Gold Records, Vol. 4 and seven years after his death came volume five in the series, courtesy of Joan Deary, the first RCA executive to take a sensible, intelligent approach to handling the Elvis Presley library. The original ten-song LP has been expanded to a 16-song CD. Later country chart hits like "Moody Blue" work well juxtaposed with numbers like "Suspicious Minds" and "Big Boss Man," and odd B-sides like "For the Heart" which, as "Had a Dream," became the Judds' first hit in 1984 and Elvis' cover of "You Don't Have to Say You Love Me" don't seem out of place. The only real loser here mostly thanks to its ponderous chorus is "Edge of ...

The only real loser here mostly thanks to its ponderous chorus is "Edge of Reality," a song that originally showed up in the movie Live a Little, Love a Little as a psychedelic number in a dream sequence in which Elvis dances with a man in a great-dane costume -- even stripped of that image, it doesn't work as a song, and comes off even less well since it precedes the superb "Memories" and "If I Can Dream." The decade represented by the 16 songs on volume five shows an Elvis Presley every bit as secure as an artist as the rebel represented on volumes one or two, searching for and generally finding a sound and an audience that could go together.

    Go for Volume SIX

    We have heard the great songs on offer on Vol 5, but why oh why are RAC taking so long to release a Vol 6. Has 'The Wonder of You, Don't Cry Daddy, I've Lost You' plus many more to wait any longer? Here's my list and reviews for Elvis Golden Records VOL 6. 1/ Don't Cry Daddy Elvis's first release of the seventies. Recorded during the Memphis sessions the single got to No 8 in the UK. 2/ The Wonder Of You Reached No 1 when released in the summer of 1970. Its 6 weeks run at the top of the UK charts made it the top selling single of the year. Listen to the words as Elvis sings this one 'just for his fans'. 3/ I've Lost You. Recorded during the days of the live shows at the Hilton the single was yet another top ten UK hit reaching no 9 in Nov. 1970. 4/ I Really Don't Want To Know This was 'B' side of Elvis's second release in'71. The 'A' side was Elvis singing 'There goes my everything'. However the flip proved more popular with the fans. The single reached no6. 5/ Rags to Riches A top ten hit when released in the summer of 1971. Elvis again in great voice singing for his fans. 6/ I'm Leavin Deserved to be a bigger hit at the time of release just failing to reach the top twenty. Tones of Elvis sounding like Roy Orbison, a singer he much liked. 7/ I Just Can't Help Believing This release returned Elvis to the top reaches of the UK hit parade reaching no.6 in Nov. '71. Great video of the king on TOTP giving the fans a preview of his new film recorded at the Hilton Hotel. 8/ Until Its Time For You To Go Another top 10 hit. reaching a peak of no 5 when released in early 1972.. 9/ American Trilogy Reached no 8 in the summer of '72. One of the kings more unusual single releases. 10/ Always On My Mind Reached No9 when first released in '72. Re-released in 1997 getting to No.4 and also being the title song on one of his biggest selling CD's. 11/ Separate Ways The 'B' side of 'Always'. These songs were recorded at the time of Elvis's marriage break-up. 12/ Fool Released in the middle of 1973. Elvis still in the same recording mood of late '72. Still made the top 20 in the the UK. 13/ My Boy Yet another of the recordings Elvis made during the break up of his marriage. And yet another big hit reaching no5 in the UK singles. 14/ Promised Land December '74 and at last Elvis records a song from his roots. After 5 non top ten releases Promised Land returns the king to the UK top 10. 15/ Suspicion Recorded way back in 1961 and released on the 'Pot Luck' LP. The song was released as a single in 1976 and got Elvis back into the UK top ten once again after a number of misses. 16/ It's Only Love The first single released after his death. Its sales where just a few short of making it yet another UK no1. Its highest position was no3. 17/ My Way Recorded live at one of Elvis' last shows. Yet another entry for Elvis the UK top 10. A great song from a great singer who has out sold all others as this Volume SIX proves. Bonus tracks. 18/ Where Did They Go Lord The flip side of 'Rags to riches'. Another side to the Kings talents. 19/ If Every Day Day Was Like Christmas Recorded during the autumn in 1966 the single was released in December that year and reached no8. Elvis recorded many Christmas songs, but this one is has that timeless magic. 20/ America The 'B' side of 'My Way'. 21/ My Happiness The first ever song recorded by Elvis. This is the famous song he recorded for his mother. The rest is history. 22/ I'll Never Stand In Your Way Another recording by Elvis way back in 1954 and pre-dating the days of rock 'n roll. 21/ Where Do You Come From. This recording was deleted from the Girls, Girls, Girls; film but the song was released as the 'B' side to 'Return To Sender'. It is almost a forgotten song and a lot of fans may never have heard it. [Volume 7 ?]. Yes, there are enough. The ones that got away. Pledging my Love / It's matter of time / Patch it up / The Next step is love /
