Elvis' Golden Records, Vol. 3 [US Bonus Tracks]

Editorial Reviews

The original Elvis' Golden Records, Vol. 3 was, like its predecessors, an unprecedented release -- no one in rock & roll up to that point, other than Elvis, had ever earned a second greatest-hits volume, much less a third. This is also the place where the softer, more mature Presley replaces the angry young Elvis represented on the first two volumes. On a sexual level, songs like "Stuck on You," "It's Now or Never," "Fame and Fortune," "I Gotta Know," and "Surrender" offer the fantasy of seduction rather than diverting violation. He might no longer have been a rebel, but as represented on the original dozen songs of this album, he was still making the Top Five and even ...

He might no longer have been a rebel, but as represented on the original dozen songs of this album, he was still making the Top Five and even the top of the charts regularly with work that was legitimately fine early-'60s rock & roll and pop
ock. "His Latest Flame" or "Good Luck Charm" might not have been groundbreaking musical statements of the caliber of "Heartbreak Hotel" or "Blue Suede Shoes," but in Elvis' hands they were worth hearing over and over. The original 12 songs have been augmented by six more, including "Can't Help Falling in Love" which should have been on this disc to begin with and the hauntingly beautiful "Girl of My Best Friend," which was a number two hit in England, plus "Wild in the Country" and "Wooden Heart" a hit in Europe from G.I. Blues. The producers have stuck with the most tasteful and intriguing numbers from the films, within the time frame of the original release, the annotation is thorough, and the 1997 remastered sound runs circles around all prior editions.
