Listen CLOSELY to the Viva Las Vegas FTD & listen to their interaction.
Some noteworthy moments ...
'The Lady Loves Me' Tk9 - On the 'Silver Screen' FTD Ann-Margret says at the start, "What do I do?" to which Elvis replies, "You give me a cue". This is missing from this release and the audio mix is also different with Elvis centre channel this time. A classic cool duet but the real delight is discovering Ann-Margret leaning very close to Elvis as she sings, "I'd rather kiss a rattlesnake." Her voice obviously bleeds into his microphone. Now why would she be making a point of that lyric to Elvis!? I hope that Priscilla never listened that closely on headphones!
'You're The Boss' Tk3 - The version of this on 'Silver Screen' had some added echo across the whole mix which seemed a little unnecessary. Here it is pure Elvis & Ann-Margret purring very nicely together, especially on the fade out. Give yourselves a treat by turning off the left (backing) channel and listen to just the two of them interact. (Listen to their gentle moan at 00:30 after "You've got me beat upside down..."). Let's face it, with Ann-Margret singing, "When it comes down to love, you're a horse", sex was on the cards!! Note that after that line on the Master Elvis comments to Ann, "Oh Yeah" which was missing from this earlier take!
'I Need Somebody To Lean On' is a highlight as you can now hear Elvis' every whisper and breath. Another gem is the Master of 'You're The Boss' where they have now properly separated Elvis & Ann-Margret's vocal to left & right channels. Even better is the fact that it runs on 17 seconds longer than the original and there is some lovely vocal interplay & laughing between them at the end that we have never heard before. While several of the extra outtakes have already been released there are still 11 new takes, or false starts, that have never been issued before.
Love Ann-Margret -
