I am writhing this review mainly because of the unfair review below. It is unfair to rate an album based on the fact most of the other tracks can be found elsewhere.
Yes, 8 of the 10 tracks might be available on the reissue of "Promised Land" as bonus tracks and yes, it's better to buy that. By all means mention that in your review, but the rating should still be for the musical content of the record. This album is a great set. 5 Stars from me for great music.
"Talk about the good times" is a belter. A mix of gospel, country and boogie woogie. Elvis is really into his performance here and his voice is in fine form.
This album has a huge religious feel and while i like some religious singers, I love religious music twice as much when Elvis is singing it.
I agree anyone who had sence would by the edition of "Promised Land" with the 8 bonus tracks from this CD, but the songs are great and I have rated based on that.
Thank you very much!
