    Underrated sessions, I think these show even more sensitivity than the records from 1970. Not that I dislike that year, but Elvis seemingly went back to country, folk and gospel with a more subtle approach in '71, as opposed to the over-the-top studio version of 'Rags to Riches' and such.

    Just listened to this disc this evening and what a superb FTD this one turned out to be.

    I have eagerly anticipated more outtakes from the Nashville 1971 recording sessions for what seems like a very long time now, and this CD really delivers.

    I personally feel that the 1971 secular recordings when collected together have always made for a credible album in their own right, not to mention a very enjoyable listening experience.

    Here you get a block of eleven tasty alternate takes of the secular recordings sandwiched between some mighty fine gospel and yuletide outtakes at either end of the compilation.

    There is also a rather brief informal jam of Johnny B. Goode punctuated with some frivolity from Elvis; singing 'Leon......Leon !!'.........'that's 'Noel !' backwards man' Elvis quips.

    Too many highlights on this disc to mention, suffice it to say, for me anyway, this one ranks up there with the very best of the output from FTD.

    Nicely balanced and well paced tracklist.

    Re: FTD 60 - I Sing All Kinds

    Finally was able to listen to this one, and it is just FANTASTIC!!!

    A nice mix of material to be sure! The alternate of PADRE is fantastic and would have been a perfect master had it not been for the end of the song where he got off track from the music a little bit. I love listening to Elvis talking at the end of a beautiful alternate of I'M LEAVIN' where Elvis says that the song is worth working on....great stuff!!!

    These are just my first impressions having only listened to it once....gotta give it a few more spins in my CD player to further investigate!!!
