Elvis: Rock

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
It almost defies belief that there could be an Elvis Presley rock & roll comp that doesn't include anything from Sun Records, so that right there is a good sign that RCA's 2006 comp Elvis Rock -- part of a trilogy of three theme-based compilations that also includes Elvis Country and Elvis Inspirational -- may not deliver all that the title promises. And that's true: while it may have a good number of great rockers, Elvis Rock is also misguided, missing some of his hardest rockers at the expense of cuts like "Dixieland Rock," an enjoyably silly cut from King Creole that doesn't have a patch on "Good Rockin' Tonight," "Mystery Train," or "That's All Right," ...

Despite this major flaw, Elvis Rock does contain a pretty good sampling of a bunch of terrific stuff -- it's hard to complain about any comp that has "Hound Dog," "Blue Suede Shoes," "Jailhouse Rock," "I Got Stung," and "Hard Headed Woman," so this winds up as pretty entertaining. Just don't think this is the absolute best rock & roll from Elvis, or that this will give you all that you need from the King -- think of it as a fun sampler, and you won't be disappointed.

    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.
