The 'Tickle Me' soundtrack. I love all the songs. And it's so nice to have them all gathered together in one collection.

I would name the following ones:
01) Live Recordings:
I would pick "Dixiland Rocks". The show is good, the sound quality is excellent and the giant performance of "My Boy" is worth the cd. That song was always sung well, but this version is simply outstanding.
In this cathegory I would choose "The Jungle Room Sessions". This release shows the famous Graceland - Sessions in a new light. Nearly everywhere you have to read how stoned and strange Elvis was during those sessions. I made some friends on this messageboard with my opinion about Elvis as a person and his use of medication, but that doesen't mean that Elvis was out of it all the time. And this cd shows clearly, that Elvis still could sing a song. His voice may have been weak at times, but on the other hand he could still sing with a strong, deep and rich voice. And listening to the studio chatter reveals, that Elvis wasn't stoned. At least not to a degree, where you could realize that he was under the influence of something. He still could sing and a lot of the performances are even better than the heavyly overdubbed versions from the "Boulevard" / "Moody Blue" albums.
03) Classic Albums:
I would go for the "Loving You" LP. Although the second cd could have been skiped ("Loving You" is a good song, but not that good ;) ), the artwork looks great, the song are classics (most of them) and you would never have guessed that they are nearly fifty years old. They sound absolutely fantastic.
