Doing a bit of an assemblage of Elvis' entire released catalogue, so believe it or not this album has on it some vital tracks worth searching out. The re-release contains some redundancies but this, the original release contains everything you need. if you're curious as to which songs are the ones mentioned than you have to do the research as I did! Sweet listening.

Elvis is natural and he bends his voice to each song with ease and soulfulness. All the songs by many great composers, including one by Elvis are showstoppers and heart rending. Elvis also does a different take vocally on The Beatles 'Hey Jude' using his higher register with a waspy effect on his voice, which is very effective. If you're looking to find an album that captures the soul of Elvis and the sound of his kind heart beating through the speakers, you have it in this wonderful and creative album.

I have had this album as a 33 vinyl since 1973, but am separated from it these days. The CD is filling the memories department beautifully. I should have thought of making this purchase years ago.

HASH(0xa124fe7c) out of 5 stars a classic Elvis album July 1 2007
By Eric Cornelius - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Elvis Now is one of if not his best 70's album...a classic no doubt.This tremendous work showcases not only Elvis' love for a variety of music but his God given ability to sing all kinds.We Can Make The Morning is the stand alone song from this set and ranks as one of his best songs from the 70s period.Help Me Make It Through The Night shows off his love for country music but it doesn't sound "country" has that Elvis sound.Until Its Time for You To Go is another great gem on this set and was one of the standards for his live shows in the early 70s...Sylvia is a powerful ballad that tells a great story...Elvis' voice is so strong on this song it'll rattle the glass if the volume is up...This entire CD is great.I love mine and listen to it often.If you don't understand this whole "Elvis Thing" you will after listening to Elvis Now.

HASH(0xa124fed0) out of 5 stars Elvis Now & then! Jan. 23 2010
By Bernard F. A. Roughton - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
"Elvis Now" was originally released on vinyl in 1972 and the majority of the songs come from sessions held at RCA's Studio B in Nashville. However, just one song actually comes from the famous American Sound Studio Memphis sessions, held on January 21st 1969 and that is "Hey Jude"! The first two songs from Studio B come from a June 1970 session, with "I Was Born 10,000 Years Ago" getting it's first proper release here. It was previously used fading in & out between the tracks on "Elvis Country". From a session held in March 1971 Gordon Lightfoot's "Early Morning Rain" was committed to wax, and it's a particularly delicate version, with good guitar work from Chip Young. A very long session, known as the "Nashville Marathon", from 15th to 21st June of the same year produced five more Studio B tracks, including the Hit Single "Until It's Time For You To Go/We Can Make The Morning". Interestingly this session also produced "The Miracle Of The Rosary", which has been rather mysteriously 'dropped' from several of his gospel albums. So get it here while you can! Another gospel song, the infectious "Put Your Hand In The Hand" is the final Studio B offering, from a session held on June 6th 1971. For those who may think Elvis only exists from 100 "Greatest Hits" compilations this album contains material you may well not have heard. For only $6.98 it's well worth expanding your Elvis horizons!

This is an ok album, not particularly strong, but not that bad either. It was released in early 1972 and peaked at 43 on the US album chart and would eventually be certified GOLD. It did better in the UK reaching 12 on the album chart. It produced one modest hit single "Until It's Time for You to Go" reached the top 40 on the US singles chart and top ten on the Adult Contemporary chart. It was also a top 10 hit in the UK. My favorite song on the album is an up-tempo, rockin' blues number "I Was Born About Ten Thousand Years Ago". "Put Your Hand in the Hand" is pretty good too. "Hey Jude" was recorded in the late 60's and it sounds like Elvis was just fooling around with it. His voice is really straining and he is making-up some lyrics. It should never have been released. The fact that it was, is just another indicator of how poorly managed Elvis was and how desperate his label was for studio recordings by him.

HASH(0xa12506e4) out of 5 stars One Song Oct. 26 2011
By Kcp9000 - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Most of the tracks on this are beneath Elvis---not his best efforts... I think most hard core Elvis fans like myself would agree with me. I'd heard it before way back in the late 70s, and thought the same then.

But I've been hearing Elvis' version of "Early Morning Rain" on satellite radio a lot lately. I've been looking for a copy of it, and after a search, this album came up. (Not sure why I didn't buy just the one song on download, but I guess I was curious about the rest, see what it sounded like after having not heard it for decades.)

Buy the album for Early Morning Rain, or download that one song. It's one of my favorite songs of all time, and I love all or most versions, including Gordon Lightfoot's. It is Gordon Lightfoot who wrote the song, and in my humble opinion, it's his masterpiece. The lyrics are pure poetry, some of the best lyrics I've ever heard. The song really sets a mood and fills your mind with beautiful, melancholy pictures. You can just picture this lonesome guy watching his love take off in that airplane. Highly, highly recommend. Hope you enjoy it as much as I. Now THIS song gets 5 stars, but I couldn't give the whole album 5 stars just for one song...

As for the rest, well, the other reviewers pretty much covered that. It's not so great. Someone said that We Can Make The Morning is good. I guess it's stronger than most of what's on here. The Hey Jude is odd, with Elvis singing too high, and you can hear the strain in his voice. It is a lovely song, but there are better versions out there. I think Elvis could have done this song beautifully with a different key and a better arrangement.

That's it! Except, get Early Morning Rain!

HASH(0xa124ff90) out of 5 stars Non-Essential '70s Elvis (plus one) - still worth hearing and having Oct. 27 2010
By P. Silverman - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
One of the strangest Elvis albums out there, mixing middle of the road, with pop, and Gospel. Elvis sings *out* on all tracks, especially on the "Miracle of the Rosary" and "We Can make The Morning", a B-sider all the way for EP, although it rings out nice and clean right here on this '72 release - a modest little beat ballad with an arresting hook.

The album altogether is a bit downbeat, especially kicking off with "Help Me Make It Through The Night", a great worldweary warble by the big man; then, followng immediately up with a modern Gospel tune. I was already looking for my Frankie and Johnny CD.

Terrific mediocrities include the '69 session leftover, "Hey Jude", ironically the best-produced track here - now wonder, as it came from the Chips Moman sessions. It's alwatys fun tp hea Elvis on a presumptive spur-of-the-moment muse, but the lyric adjust is too much - all I can imagine is a group of co-eds laughing at how the "former King" couldn't handle the sacrosanct number from the
"new Kings". A reviewer on Amazpon wrote that Presley did not sound Presley on this album - he was probably thinking of this semi-embarrassment. (El, y'mean there was no Carl Perkins song spinnin' 'round in your head, you coulda launched into, instead?).

The best track for me is "Sylvia", another Country ballad which Elvis devours. No lazy crooning here. A solid effort, though it's really album-only stuff.

To close out an unexciting (but musically adventurous) album is the Ricky Nelson arrangement of "Fools Rush In". I guess Elvis did it as a favor to his lead guitarist, James Burton, who played that classic break on the 1964 hit.
