5.0 out of 5 stars My personal favorite Elvis album July 5 2004
By profile
Format:Audio CD
For me, this represents Elvis at his late-period best. The album is well-produced, and while skimpy at 10 tracks (it was all about product, product, product back then), the ones that are here are glorious. His passionate versions of standards like Solitaire and Hurt are powerfully sung without being overwrought. You really get to glimpse into Elvis' musical world, as the songs he sings here are personal favorites of his. Purists who think the Sun Sessions are the only Elvis songs worth hearing won't like this, but for the rest of this, this is a great disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW.......SAD, but Powerful. March 27 2004
Format:Audio CD
I'm 26, and I've been a Presley fan pretty much my entire life. However, I just recently bought this album. My parents had the LP when I was growing up, but for some reason, I never really remember listening to it. But, over the past several months, I have been really getting back into Elvis, and when I saw this album at the store today, I just had to buy it. Actually, it's the Moody Blue/Presley Boulevard split cd. Pretty much most of the other reviews I've read are accurate. This is an EXTREMELY sad album. When I listened to it straight through for the first time, I almost felt emotionally drained. I wouldn't listen to this album when you're extremely depressed....you're liable to hang yourself. (I'm just kidding, but you get the point.) HOWEVER, as somber as this album is, I COULDN'T WAIT to listen to it again. Hence, my 5 star rating. The desperation in Elvis' voice is just amazing. You get the feeling that he is really meaning and FEELING every single word that he is singing. As I've long told other people, love or hate Elvis' "later years", there's no denying that his voice during this period was at it's strongest ever. What a set of pipes!! If you're just getting into Elvis, or only have a couple of his earlier albums, I might not suggest getting this album JUST yet. You sort of need to see and hear his progression up until this point. But, this album is definitely a must-have. If you don't mind sadness and desperation, and love the powerful and awesome voice of Elvis Presley, then you must get this album. I'm going to listen to it again!

4.0 out of 5 stars For the Heart March 15 2010
Format:Audio CD
No performer in the history of popular music gave more of himself than Elvis Presley. This album, recorded at home in Graceland near the end of his life, is melancholy to be sure, but a strong effort that has grown in reputation over the years; down but not out, Elvis still gave his all. "Solitaire," "Hurt," and "For the Heart" are the classics here, but Elvis' spare, reflective reading of "Danny Boy" and an impassioned "I'll Never Fall in Love Again" are every bit as compelling. Essential!

5.0 out of 5 stars This was Elvis for me Sept. 23 2003
Format:Audio CD
This album introduced me to Elvis. It was the late 1970s, and I was about eight years old. My father had an 8-track of this album, and I had to play it every time I rode in his company car, a big forest green Mercury Marquis. I am not sure if I knew that Elvis had died, but I knew that I really liked this tape. I remember that it made me cry sometimes... all of the songs on the tape, of course, being sad songs.
I did not listen to music much at that age, or really for another six years after that. Even so, there was something about that voice that I found compelling. When I listen to this album now, I am amazed at how little accompaniment Elvis needed; compared to any more modern pop music, it is pretty sparse, and it is perfect that way. The power of Elvis' voice, even this close to his death, was enough.
I have just recently rediscovered this album. I had not listened to any of it since the last time we had a car with an 8-track player in it... which was probably twenty years ago. Recently, my mother and I were talking about Elvis, and I mentioned how much I had liked "From Elvis Presley Boulevard." She promptly produced the 8-track for me-- the very same one I had played twenty years ago. When my parents divorced, she got the 8-tracks.
Now I have again heard the songs that I remember so well, and I am reminded of what a good vocalist can do. This album, if you don't mind its somber tone, is a gem. It is what I think of when someone says "Elvis."

5.0 out of 5 stars The best and most misunderstood album Elvis made Sept. 22 2001
Format:Audio CD
Why this title for my review? Let me tell you now. Ask some random person you meet what Elvis songs he or she knows. That person will most likely answer you titles like Hound Dog, Don't Be Cruel, Jailhouse Rock and Are You Lonesome Tonight. And off course, these are really classics.
But sadly, people see Elvis as a dumb guy who only made good songs at the beginning of his career (like the ones mentioned before). This upsets me! My God, The Beatles are on TV! Why not Elvis?! My God, people think that Elvis abused young girls ( dumb rumours..!), My God, people think that Elvis only made some bad movies!
If i think about these things, i feel Hurt. And that is the first song from this album. Elvis probably felt Hurt as well. That's not hard to understand. Anyone in his shoes would feel the same way. Always underestimated and misunderstood. That is exactly why the decline started in his life. Elvis did not destroy himself, the people destroyed HIM! Why did they do that? To know that, read this qoute:
"When a true genius appears in this world, you may know him by this sign: That all the dunces are in confederacy against him."
-Dean Swift, 1667 - 1745
This album really tells a lot about the way Elvis felt. Sadly, this kind of music is too good for a lot of people (or should i say "dunces"?). They only see the bad sides of Elvis. (like boring movies)
Now you know why my title is called this way, let me tell you about the songs!
The first one (like mentioned before) is the formidable, majestic, powerful, fantastic song Hurt. This song is really GREAT. Why? First of all, the way he sings it is really astounding. The beginning is great, the spoken middle part is great and the ending is great. Opera singers should be jealous!

5.0 out of 5 stars You can get these tracks on the reissued Moody Blue...
...which is where I heard them, but my guess is this is a better way to go. Both this album and Moody Blue were recorded at a studio Felton Jarvis had built for Elvis in his home. Read more
