Description:
The 1997 reissue of G.I. BLUES is remixed from the original three-track master tapes, and includes extra tracks. This limited edition of the reissue includes a deluxe 28-page booklet. This is the soundtrack to Elvis' fifth movie, made in early 1960. The version of "Blue Suede Shoes" on this soundtrack was recorded in 1960 and is different from the 1956 single version. Personnel: Elvis Presley (vocals, guitar); Scotty Moore, Tiny Timbrell, Neal Matthews Jr. (guitar); Jimmie Haskell (accordion); Dudley Brooks (piano); Ray Siegel (bass); D. J. Fontana, Frank Bode, Bernie Mattinson (drums); The Jordanaires (background vocals). Reissue producers: Ernst Mikael Jorgensen, Roger Semon. Recorded at RCA Studios and Radio Recorders, Hollywood, California between April and May 1960. Personnel: Elvis Presley (vocals); Neal Matthews, Jr., Scotty Moore, Tiny Timbrell (guitar); Jimmie Haskell (accordion); Dudley Brooks (piano); Frank Bode, Bernie Mattinson (drums); The Jordanaires (background vocals). Recording information: Radio Recorders, Hollywood (04/1960-05/1960); RCA Studios (04/1960-05/1960). G.I. BLUES, Presley's first movie following his return from military service was, like most of his '60s movies, a light romantic comedy with plenty of musical numbers. As the decade progressed and the Presley movie formula ossified, Hollywood and Colonel Tom expended less effort finding suitable musical material for Presley to sing. Presley's earliest '60s movies, however, usually boasted strong soundtracks, and G.I. BLUES is among the best of them. None of the songs are embarrassing--no "Yoga Is As Yoga Does" or "Queenie Wahini's Papaya" here--and, in fact, nearly all are very good. Best, of course, is the Carl Perkins classic "Blue Suede Shoes," but also excellent are a "Such A Night"-like boogie entitled "Tonight Is So Right For Love," the title track, and several lovely ballads, among them "Pocket Full Of Rainbows," "Wooden Heart," and the lullaby "Big Boots." Overall, G.I. BLUES...
