Product Description

Amazon.ca

Ce disque est le dernier publié du vivant d'Elvis Presley, en juillet 1977, avant qu'il ne disparaisse probablement d'une overdose de barbituriques, le 16 août précisément. Il fait suite à une longue série de concerts où le public, curieux et avide de contempler sa déchéance depuis son divorce d'avec Priscilla, se précipite pour applaudir le déclin de celui qu'il avait fait roi. Après cette période qui court de 1973 à 1976, entre autres marquée par Aloha From Hawaii Via Satellite, Elvis Recorded Live On Stage In Memphis et Having Fun With Elvis On Stage, Presley s'en retourne à Graceland où il invite ses musiciens à l'accompagner et enregistrer sur place. Sortiront de ces séances deux disques superbes, From Elvis Presley Boulevard Memphis, Tenessee, où figure "Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain" (paraît-il une des toutes dernières chansons qu'il aurait chantées avant de s'éteindre) et Moody Blue, dont émerge la chanson-titre qui se vendra à plus de deux millions d'exemplaires dans les semaines suivant sa tragique disparition vécue comme un deuil national. C'est l'album où l'Amérique pleure un de ses héros, un de ceux par qui le rock'n'roll advint. 1977 marque par ailleurs l'avènement du mouvement punk. C'est comme la fin d'une époque qui se lit en filigrane au travers de ce disque lyrique. --Hervé Comte

HISTORY OF MOODY BLUE:

“Moody Blue” was the last album released during Elvis’ lifetime. It appeared some twenty-one years after his first epochal album and had been on the market for just two months when the world was stunned by the news of his death.

During Elvis’ last years, RCA found it all but impossible to get their reluctant superstar into a studio. Elvis seemed wearied by the prospect of meeting the commitment of two albums and four singles a year called for under his 1973 contract. Too often, producer Felton Jarvis had to rely on “live” recordings to satisfy the quotas. Indeed, four of the original ten recordings on Moody Blue were live.

If Elvis would not go into a studio, it was decided that the studio would come to him. The den at the back of Graceland, known today as the Jungle Room, was converted into a studio. There were two series of the Graceland’s Sessions. The first one was from February 2 to 7, 1976, resulting in the following songs: “Bitter They Are, Harder They Fall,” “She Thinks I Still Care,” “The Last Farewell,” “Solitaire,” “Moody Blue,” “I’ll Never Fall In Love Again,” “For The Heart,” “Danny Boy,” “Hurt,” “Never Again,” “Love Coming Down,” and “Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain.” Ten of the above 12 recordings were released as “From Elvis Presley Boulevard, Memphis Tennessee” in April 1976. Although it only peaked at No. 41 on Billboard 200, it reached No. 1 on the Billboard Country Album Chart.

The second series of Graceland’s Sessions was from October 29-30, 1976, resulting in four songs: “It’s Easy For You,” “Way Down,” “Pledging My Love,” and “He’ll Have To Go.” The third sessions in January 1977 were cancelled. This left Felton no option but to round out the new album with four live recordings.

1.0 out of 5 stars Let Me Be There March 13 2003
Format:Audio CD
I am a 12 year old music fan from Lucasville Ohio. My mom has the original blue album of this. I would say along with In person at The International Hotel Las Vegas Nevada and the Jailhouse Rock Soundtrack and the Sun Records songs. This is one of Elvis' best. Moody Blue is like a country/rock/disco song. Everyone has heard Way Down. Unchained Melody is better than The Righteous Brothers version. He'll Have To Go is a great Country Song originally by George Jones. I am saying all these great things about this album. Why Did I Give It 1 star? The best song on the album is the live version of the Olivia Newton-John song Let Me Be There recorded in Memphis Tennesee. This song RCA didn't bother to put on this CD It should be between He'll Have To Go and Way Down or on the record or cassette- the end of side 1. Anybody who gave this 5 stars has not heard the original album which is 1 million stars. I don't mind a few bonus tracks but what you mainly buy the album for is the album not bonus tracks. There is a version avaidible without bonus tracks if you would like to hear the best song on the album. I ordered that version from The Record Shop yesterday. By the way I did not buy this version.

5.0 out of 5 stars elvis presley at his final recording sessions Jan. 30 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
elvis presley, a collection of two of his last albums,at his best,his voice is deeper and powerful! Yet pain and sadness could be felt here.A man of great talent! A fan here since the 70s. Effort was placed here on his part. His voice better than ever,yet not for the commercial market,only for the older and romantic.

5.0 out of 5 stars LONG LIVE THE KING! May 20 2004
Format:Audio CD
ELVIS' WORK HERE IN HIS LAST ALBUM RELEASED BEFORE HIS DEATH, SHOWS US THE LEGEND STILL HAD IT TO THE END. ELVIS FANS ALIKE KNOW ELVIS' NOW CHRONCHILED HEALTH WAS IN TROUBLE, HE WAS NOT HIMSELF AND PERSONALLY AS A HUUMAN BEING SEEMED LOST. HOWEVER MOST GENERALLY ELVIS FOUND HOPE AND REASON FOR LIVING IN HIS MUSIC. WITHOUT MUSIC AND ADORING FANS HE MAY NOT HAD LASTED AS LONG AS HE DID CONSIDERING HIS DIET AND DRUG USE.
THIS ALBUM GIVES US MANY WELL LOVED HITS SUCH AS MOODY BLUE AND WAY DOWN WHICH HAVE A REAL ROCKABILLY SOUND TO IT! MY PERSONAL FAVORITE IS ELVIS' VERSION OF UNCHAINED MELODY..VERY TOUCHING AND STRIPPED OF THE ORCHRESTRA....JUST ELVIS ON A PIANO! MANY RARE AND GREAT SONGS TO CHOOSE FROM . AND TO ME THIS A MUST HAVE FOR FANS OF ELVIS AND OF OF HISTORY WHO SEE HIS DEMISE AS WELL AS HIS PREVAILANCE TO SING RIGHT UNTIL THE END. HE SINGS HIS HEART OUT ALMOST TO LET YOU KNOW OR AS IF HE KNEW THIS WOULD BE HIS LAST ALBUM.

As with many other early CD releases of Elvis Presley material, this one has been re-released with added tracks and, considering the monetary difference, that one would seem to be a better buy. Unless, that is, you want a copy of this version of the original RCA Victor vinyl LP AFL1-2428].
The title tune, recorded in early February 1976 in the Graceland den, was initially released as a single b/w the George Jones 1962 country smash, She Thinks I Still Care [track 9]. Backed by J.D. Sumner & The Stamps and Myrna Smith, the A-side made it to # 1 Country/# 2 Adult Contemporary/# 31 pop early in 1977.
Tracks 1, 2 and 3, the first done in 1955 by Al Hibbler, Les Baxter, Roy Hamilton, and June Valli, all of whom had hits with it, the second a 1974 hit for Olivia Newton-John, and the other a golden oldie from 1957 by The Gladiolas and The Diamonds, were recorded in April 1977 and featured the back-up voices of The Sweet Inspirations, J.D. Sumner & The Stamps, Kathy Westmoreland, and Sherrill Nielsen.
The old Jim Reeves hit from 1960, He'll Have To Go, features the same backing vocals except for The Sweet Inspirations who were replaced by Myrna Smith, and was recorded in October 1976. Track 5 is another 1974 Newton-John hit which he recorded live at the Mid-South Coliseum in Memphis on March 20, 1974 with Sumner and the Stamps, Sweet Inspirations, and Kathy Westmoreland.
Way Down and Pledging My Love were recorded in October 1976 with the same back-up as track 4 and released first as a single in June 1977. Representing his last hit single while still alive, the A-side made it to # 1 Country, # 14 AC, and # 18 pop in August [he died on August 16], while the B-side also went to # 1 Country.
