Underrated album from the King Feb. 10 2001
By "burning" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"ELVIS", also known as the "Fool" album, was the first release after the very successful "Aloha from Hawaii" special and album (which went to number One on the charts).
But, when this album was released in the summer of '73, it only hit #50 on the charts! Why is that? Perhaps lack of promotion from RCA?
This album contains tracks recorded from 1971 to 1972 (one which is from a Las Vegas performance). All songs on this release have something to offer: "Fool" and "Where Do I Go From Here" are pleasant tunes that are decidedly "non-commercial" by Elvis standards.
"Love Me, Love the Life I Lead" is probably one of the most overlooked Elvis performances. He sings it tough, hitting lots of high notes and showing a lot of expressionism. A classic!
"It's Still Here", "I'll Take You Home Again, Kathleen" and "I Will Be True" were all recorded alone in the studio with Elvis alone at the piano. Overdubbs were added later. These give you a feel of intimacy as Elvis sings his heart out.
"It's Impossible" is Elvis' cover of a Perry Como hit. It's probably the weakest track on the album, but weak doesn't necessarily mean BAD. It's just not my personal fave, that's all.
"For Lovin' Me" was recorded during Elvis' "folk music" period (when he also recorded "Early Morning Rain"). This is a nice cover of a song he heard Peter, Paul and Mary do.
"Padre" is a favorite song of Elvis' (as he mentions on the interview found on the "King of Rock and Roll-The Complete 50s Masters" box set. This is quite a performance, starting out calmly and leading up to a crescendo ending, as only Elvis could do.
"Don't Think Twice, It's Alright" is one of two Bob Dylan covers released during Elvis' lifetime (the other being "Tomorrow Is a Long Time", originally released as a 'bonus track' on the SPINOUT LP and later released on the "From Nashville To Memphis: The Essential 60s Masters"). This is a brief edit of a 10+ minute jam that Elvis and his band would sometimes evolve into. A longer version appears on the 70s box, and an even longer one is on the long out-of-print LP OUR MEMORIES OF ELVIS, VOLUME 2.
This is an album that really deserves another listen. Just because there are no hit songs on this album, that doesn't make it any less of an Elvis classic. In fact, it's his best release until PROMISED LAND.

Elvis: The King's Best in the 70's June 17 2000
By Vernon Firestone - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It's amazing that so few people know about can be such a wonderful experience over and over. This album and "That's The Way It Is" represent the best Elvis had to offer. "Elvis" offerings include the phenominal "Fool", the heartfelt "Love The Life I Lead" and "Padre". Bob Dylan's "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright" get's a first class treatment, and a nice version of the standard "It's Impossible" is also included. "I'll Take You Home Again Kathleen" and"It's Still Here" are raw Elvis. These tracks have Elvis on vocals and piano with a small bass part in the background. What this album shows is the emotion that the King was going through during this period of his life. The emotion shows in his voice and the power in which he delivers the songs. If you want a top notch album this is the one to have.

Consistently Good July 31 2003
By S. Mantle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a really great album. I had the vinyl from years ago and recently went and got the CD. Those who say Elvis lost the plot in the seventies should give this a good listen. It's hard to pick the best track but a personal favourite is 'Love the Life I lead'. Turn it up loud...it's great stuff! The ballads are great too, particularly 'It's Still here'. Elvis is in fine voice throughout. Highly recommended.

solid album with 2 hidden gems July 1 2007
By Eric Cornelius - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
At first glance you might not think this album rates...but after listening to it...no doubt it is a great album.Where Do I go From Here is a great song and Elvis' voice is solid.His ability to play the piano is on showcase in the songs It's Still Here,I'll Take You Home Kathleen and I will Be True....still here and kathleen being the two best.It's Impossible is a solid song and a often heard song for his live shows thru out the mid-70s including the vegas concerts.But what makes this album so great are the two seldom heard songs...Love me,Love the Life I lead and Padre.Life is just a classic...and how it has escaped our notice is a mystery.Clearly it served as a way for Elvis to make a defiant statement...Padre is a gutt wrenching passionate cry from the heart...a song that fit his voice perfectly.get this CD for those two gems alone.

One of his better 1970s albums June 11 2007
By CJ Gish - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
While Elvis was on the decline for the most part during the mid to late '70s, this album does contain some strong material. The main song, "Fool", is a good feature of his vocals. It also has some other gems in songs like, "Love Me, Love The LIfe I Lead", "Where Do I Go From Here", "(That's What You Get) For Lovin' Me", the live concert version of "It's Impossible" and the closing track of "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right." This album, along with "From Elvis Presley Boulvard, Memphis, Tennessee" and "Promised Land", are probably my three favorite Elvis albums from the 1970s.
