    EP is a classic - I don't think his music should be monkeyed with.

    "Remaster" in the sense of upgrade the sound - yeah, that's ok. Otherwise leave it the flip alone!

    I don't know if any of you heard something, some years back, called, I think, "Duets With Patsy"? This abortion of an idea was current country singers dubbed into old Patsy Cline tunes to give the appearance of a "duet". The thing was so bad you almost can't find it now - thank god.

    Just because we have the tech to do something doesn't make it a good, or even a plausible, idea.

    Leave EP's recordings alone.

    re

    I like those two remixes of A little less conversation and Rubberneckin',so if they could bring a good album with good remixes i think that will be fine.
    If it sounds good there could be a change that many young people will become fan of Elvis.Than his memory will go on further an further

    I would love an a remix album... and would love to have a copy of the new Burning Love remix!

    Same with Elvis music I love the originals but If it will help gain him new fans who have a better appreciation of his ability as a singer and performer I'm all for it. Duets- if done with class and high production value with the proper musical artists involved might be a good thing. Sinatra had a #1 Duets album of his standards with contemporary artists. Tony Bennett has one right now which has re-introduced him to new fans. The ALLC remix started a ball rolling to get new fans but I don't think it was followed up well. If you can get someone to listen to Elvis that normally would not with remixes or a Duets production I hope they do it, an do it right.

    I'm not a big fan of remixes, but I'm open to listen them. I may not buy them, but listen to on the radio... unless I really like them and wanna get those. And about a remake album, well, If it arrives to Mexico (and don't have the songs included in the cd), maybe I'd get one.
    Let the stars fade and fall, and I won't care at all, as long as I have you.

    Remixes...not for me. I know Elvis hated for people tampering with his work..but then think of a little less conversation..how big of a hit that was..so its complicated issue.

    I've had a slight change of heart towards remixes since my first post. I've heard a few lately I did like. I don't know that I would buy an album of them but I really fell in love with the ALLC remix and if all songs were done as well I would be happy if it made young people listen to Elvis.

    I'm not at all fond of the idea of mixing other entertainer's voices with Elvis' though. That bothers me. I love the ones with Lisa and Elvis but that a whole other thing...she's his daughter.

    The only other entertainer I would have loved to see do a duo on stage with Elvis is Tina Turner but remixing a song with the two of them? I don't think I would buy it.

    I'm not big on the duets idea either Diane.

Songs like Change Of Habit, Long Black Limousine, Tomorrow Is A Long Time, Big Boss Man, I Washed My Hands In Muddy Water, I'll Remember You, and Just Pretend could all benefit a new remix and re-worked approach.

    Hi Ep75 how are you?

    I respect your opinion but mine is they shouldn't touch those songs as they are all good songs and remixing them would just ruin them in my view

    I think Felton Jarvis ruined several songs with the Guitar man project

    Kentucky rain and guitar man sounded better without remixes

    Having a release featuring new instrumentation, but using the same arrangement style as the original would be cool imo

    Not too keen on the club / disco type of mixes though, except for ALLC.

    What would really be cool (imo) would be for the TCB Band (Jerry, Glen D, Ronnie, James, and John) and perhaps even Scotty and DJ to record new backing instrumentation and use Elvis' vocal.

    Now that would indeed be awesome Steve...perhaps record the intruments to a certain Elvis show and then release it..that would be very cool to hear..

    The Don't Cry Daddy duet from '97 was done to perfection.

    I liked ALLC as well I feel that they got lucky with the remix of that song as I have hated other remixes of Elvis songs and I also find it unnecessary that Sony BMG remix classic Elvis songs like ''Baby let's play house'' and ''That's alright mama'' just to try and milk more money out of Elvis fans

    The remixes actually start our being remixed by someone outside of Sony-ALLC was remixed by Junkie XL when it hit then Sony/BMG had to get involved.
    Baby Lets Play House was remixed by well known Italian DJ Spankox who first remixed the track in 2007, over 50 years after it was first recorded by Elvis. It is doing pretty good in Europe so Sony once again is getting involved.
    In Europe the 50 year copyright limit has hit on many Elvis songs so that will make it easier for just about anyone to remix them. Each year where a song becomes 50 years old will probably bring more people trying to remix some of them. Until that law is somehow changed I'm not sure what Sony or EPE can do to stop them. Naturally if the remixes hit big-Sony will try to capitalize on it.
    I agree to that certain songs should not be remixed-but Sony will have a hard time stopping people in Europe from trying.

    Supposedly there's a Christmas duets album coming out for Christmas '08. I might buy that if I hear/read something positive about it. I'm a sucker for Christmas albums. I have hundreds. But a remake or remix album? No.
