me too Danielle....I love hearing him cut up and laugh.
Me, i have always prefered the alt. Takes. Probly because it's something you don't hear that often and plus you can hear him talking and messing around.
What do you prefer ??
That is true !
Same Here the alternate takes with Chat between them , hear him that way you can hear and see how things going on in Recording Sessions, I like Rehearsal Stuff Too, You hear the Song Coming together.
Take a look at you and me,,Are we too blind to see, Do we Simply turn our heads and look the other way.....(Line From "in The Ghetto")
Alternate takes for me too. Love to hear Elvis cut up and laugh!
Both, you can't make me choose!!! LOL
I like both,but the alternate taked i love to hear,especially the versions where he's cutting up or even cursing. He shows that he messes up just like a "average person", and because he was a perfectionist. He did countless takes of certain songs,i like those too. but when he finally got the song right it was pure magic.
I also prefer Alternate Takes! I love his other songs too of course, but Alternate Takes are sometimes really very special. I have some Alternate Takes in which you can hear Elvis' voice without background chorus, they are so amazing and magical. Hearing only his voice without chorus is a really great experience, I shiver with cold when I listen these versions (although I have already known the songs before of course). I am really glad that he made these versions.
both ways do have their share of greatness
I like both. Depends on my mood.
Sometimes I just want the concert music.
But, I love the alt.takes as I enjoy hearing him laugh and have fun.
A man from Hawaii sent me all of alt. takes and I didn't even know him!!
I thought that was great and just shows how an Elvis friend is.

I prefer outtakes... they show us Elvis at his purest, live in the studio. No overdubs, no weird mixing. And it also gives us an insight of his abilities to make other people's creations his own.

Also went for alternates. Of course because they offer us diff'rent versions, but also because most of the time the sound quality is very good as well.
prefer alternate takes too ...love to hear him talk and laugh and just having fun!
I like both!!!! But, I must admit that is very nice to listen those alternate takes...
Let the stars fade and fall, and I won't care at all, as long as I have you.

Wow some great answers !
I like the alt. takes the best. It's like hearing Elvis the person instead of Elvis "The King of Rock and Roll"
Have to say both, kind of varies from song to song for me.I love hearing Elvis have a laugh and a good time at the recording sessions...and sometimes the alternate takes add something new to the way you see the song.......The undubbed,sparse versions of "In the ghetto" spring to mind.
