4.0 out of 5 stars GOOD TIMES never seemed so blue Feb. 20 2010
Format:Audio CD
Overlooked studio set from 1974 includes the bouncy "I've Got a Thing About You, Baby" and the heartfelt "My Boy." GOOD TIMES is an ironic title for this largely melancholic effort, and while it's a long way from the triumph of "FROM ELVIS IN MEMPHIS" and "ELVIS COUNTRY," it's infinitely more engaging than "RAISED ON ROCK" and a good deal more interesting than "LOVE LETTERS FROM ELVIS."

5.0 out of 5 stars Let's Remember... June 3 2005
By Chi-Town Elvis Fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
that "Good Times" was released as an album in 1974. To fully contextualize Elvis' song selections in the '70's (not Ernst Jorgensen's, with all due respect), one should own "Good Times". It is, along with "Promised Land" (the original and not the reissue) and "From Elvis Presley Boulevard", one of my favorite Elvis studio releases. It is a revealing look at the pain that Elvis was feeling at that point in his life ("Good Time Charlie's Got The Blues", "Take Good Care Of Her") while still rocking with "Talk About the Good Times" and "I've Got A Feeling In My Body". Buy "Good Times" - you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Times with Elvis! Jan. 23 2010
By Bernard F. A. Roughton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Originally released on LP in 1974, the entire contents of this album were recorded at the Famous Memphis Stax Studios. Many people are not aware that Elvis in fact held two recording sessions at this studio, which were used on 3 different albums. After the great success of the Aloha from Hawaii show in Jan 1973, Elvis was keen to record again in Memphis. American Sound was no longer available, so for 5 days from 21st to 25th July of that year he laid down 10 tracks at Stax, which went onto his "Raised On Rock album". Between the 10th & 16th of December he returned again to the studio on McLemore Avenue, which was a convenient 12 minute drive from Graceland. In that time he taped 18 really excellent songs, 10 of which are on this album. The remaining songs went onto his "Promised Land" album. Song choice is a very personal thing, but of the 3 albums of material Elvis recorded at Stax this is my personal favourite. There is really not one bad track on here, but if you've not heard "Talk About The Good Times" with it's amazing piano solo 'crossing the room' in stereo, then you ought to buy it just for that! This CD is a straight re-issue of the original LP, but painstakingly remastered and sounding better than ever before. It's a snip at $6.98! Buy it!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Some gotta win, some gotta lose. Aug. 25 2006
By Johnny Heering - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Despite the disappointing results when Elvis recorded at the Stax Studios in July, 1973 (which were released as the mediocre Raised on Rock album), the King returned to Stax in December of that same year. The results were a lot better this time. Elvis and his band were really inspired, recording enough songs for two albums (the second album was released under the title Promised Land). Eight of the songs from these sessions ended up on the Good Times album, augmented by the two best songs from the July sessions, "I've Got a Thing About You Baby" and "Take Good Care of Her". These great songs were released as a single, which for some reason barely cracked the Top 40. Most of the other songs on the album, which are mostly ballads, are very good. "Lovin' Arms" and "Good Time Charlie's Got the Blues" are excellent country songs. "I Got a Feelin' in My Body" and "If That Isn't Love" are terrific gospel songs. But probably the most popular song on the album is Elvis' cover version of actor Richard Harris' song "My Boy". This is one of those divorce songs that Elvis was fond of recording at the time, due to what was happening in his personal life, and he really puts his heart into it. This song was so well received that it later was released as a single by popular demand, and reached #20 on the charts. This is a very good album, which I like a lot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Music Feb. 15 2005
By R. Spencer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
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!
