    I've just received my copy of this album.

    It is without doubt an absolute masterpiece.

    Essential...

    In the last few years there have been loads of Elvis Presley releases, some interesting, some unnecessary. Very few prove as exciting and essential as this double CD-set covering Elvis' first two post-army studio sessions in March and April 1960. These Nashville sessions not only produced a series of sterling cuts which made the original exemplary "Elvis Is Back" album, they also gave us true classics like "It's Now Or Never", "Are You Lonesome Tonight" and "Stuck On You".

    This new "Elvis Is Back" set masterminded by the Follow That Dream team gives us the original album, the singles and all the substantial outtakes. Several of these outtakes have been released earlier (7 are released here for the first time, just as 19 false starts and workparts), but to have them all assembled often in augmented sound quality, makes the investment really worthwile.

    Presented in the now characteristic tri-fold digipack the size of a 45rpm, this set boasts no less than 53 tracks, with both discs running well over 78 minutes each. Digitally transferred and mixed at the Sony Studios in New York, the sound quality is outstanding.

    No need to hesitate... We got a classic!

    .....poor people can't buy it unfortunately.

    Elvis Is Back

    HI, This is one of the BEST FTD releases! Amazing sound! My stereo system never sounded so GOOD. A WHOLE WORLD different than my original LP copy. F T D has done a fabulus job. Too bad he was required to record a lot of "HOKEY MOVIE" songs. But we still enjoyed them. He's the greatest.
