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

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.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Down Memory Lane Feb. 13 2003
By Joan
Format:Audio CD
I have played this CD many times since receiving it. I love it not just because of the selection of songs done in Elvis' grand and endearing style, but because it reveals how Elvis was hurting and expressing himself through his music.
Being a teenager in the fifties, I really took to him and his music. Then I met the love of my life, married, and raised a family. Elvis faded from importance, though I would hear his music and of him. I could not help wondering and feeling sad over how such a talented and beloved entertainer could lose out on life.
Last year when there was much about him because of the 25th anniversary of his death, and maybe because I was lonely, I became interested again. I bought my first CD - ELVIS 30 #1 HITS just to bring back memories. I was immediately hooked again by his great voice and proceeded to buy his 50 GREATEST LOVE SONGS, COUNTRY COLLECTION, PEACE IN THE VALLEY, and THE COMPLETE 50'S MASTERS. I also bought some videos, but something was missing. I wanted to experience some of his final recordings, and MOODY BLUE seemed the answer. For the moment at least, I am fulfilled.
Though undeniably sad for me, both because of the way Elvis was feeling and because of my own feelings of loss, I nevertheless love this CD. I am overjoyed that his music is still available to an old fan and thankful his memory lives on in so many hearts through his music. LIVE ON ELVIS till I meet up with you in Heaven where I can hear you sing for Jesus "live and in person".

5.0 out of 5 stars Not everybody likes ths, but I love it Aug. 3 2002
Format:Audio CD
These tracks were recorded in the last eighteen months of Elvis' life, and everybody has a different opinion about them. I suspect that the real reason some people dislike them is their obvious country orientation.
There are plenty of country songs here, including If you love me let me know (Olivia Newton-John), He'll have to go (Jim Reeves), She thinks I still care (George Jones), Blue eyes crying in the rain (which Elvis probably covered after hearing Willie Nelson's cover of Roy Acuff's song) and Bitter they are harder they fall (Larry Gatlin). For the heart later became a country number one for the Judds, under the title Had a dream.
Unchained melody, which opens this set, has become a pop classic everywhere, but nowhere more than in Britain, where it hits the upper reaches of the charts every few years. It has been number one for three (maybe four) different artists at different times, making it (arguably) the most popular song in British chart history. Elvis' live version is not the best version of this song, but it's reasonable.
Other pop classics covered here include Pledging my love (Johnny Ace), Hurt (Timi Yuro, later a country number one for Juice Newton), The last farewell (Roger Whittaker), I'll never fall in love again (Tom Jones), Solitaire (written by Neil Sedaka, but the Carpenters and Andy Williams each had hits with it).
The old Irish folk song Danny Boy also gets a nice workout. The big hits, Moody blue and Way down, were successful on both the pop and country charts.
So, this may not be the best of Elvis, but it's a great album for country music fans to have. If you don't like country music, there are plenty of other albums by Elvis that will suit you better.
