    Would you buy a Remix or Remake album?

    If SONY BMG decided to do a remix or remake album for next year or anytime would you purchase it?

    I'd have to hear some of it first. I am not a big fan of this remix thing. That said I did actually like the remix of a little less conversation and rubbernecking .


    So never say never but it would have to win me over from air play on Sirius radio. It wouldn't be an automatic buy.

    I would love a classical treatment of some of ELvis ballads. I have always enjoyed the 'orchestra' versions of My Boy and Always On My Mind. I really would welcome an album where more of the original instruments were removed and a classical/easy listening treatment will be added.

    I think something like that (also looking at the huge succes of Stewarts Great American Songbook and lately that album of that 'Man/Cocabonal' singer) would be a guaranteed number 1 album.

    A remake album? Probably not. But I'd love a remix album. But it would have to be good, and not something thrown together, with little care or artistic vision, solely to make money. I'm not just buying something because it says "Elvis" on the cover.

    I hope it will come a new remix album in the future.
    I can't understand why so many don't like Felton Jarvis' backing tracks!
    It sounds so modern and beautiful... i haven't heard the complete Too much monkey business cd, but i fell in love with it when i listened to the FTD samples here So i will buy it..

    As long as they were to the same standard as 'A Little Less Conversation',
    look how well that done! I personally love re-mix tracks, they're always good for keeping Elvis' music fresh for the younger audiences and some of them really can be good!!

    I would love to see one of this nature be released.

    Not only would it bring a new, fresher sense to the music, but it might also cause people who aren't Elvis fans to become interested in his music and bring more people in to the flock.

    Exactly what I thought! As long as the remix sounds good and all...it could bring in more Elvis fans! Hurray!

    But i'm very glad that people make remixes/Backing tracks to get a new sound on the records..

    i would definitely buy it
    elvis has the best music in the world
    today's sonic technology is far better then they had back then
    so i'd be nice if they'd take elvis's voice and do some new backings to it
    they don't necesarily have to do a remix just a new backing.
    if i can dream of a better land

    As of right now the total is 44-18 in favor of YES between this forum, the FECC, and Elvis-The Music (BMG's main EP forum). That is 2X the amount of YES to No. Here's how it breaks down so far.

    Elvis-The Music
    15-1

    TCB-World
    15-3

    FECC
    15-14

    Since my last post i've changed my view on these "remix" albums, there not something i'm big on and don't really care for them.

    I would buy a remix album if it was done right. I'd like to hear the music updated and/or done in a different way, even though it would never be as good as the original, it would still be fun to hear something new. As long as the whole thing didnt sound techno like the "Rubberneckin" or "ALLC" did. I hated both of those remixes and I would bet that Elvis wouldnt have cared to much for them either.

    I agree with you..

    But, in the beginning when "A little less conversation" was released, i was listening to it as all the others did, but now, i hate that song because Sirius plays it every hour! That's just horrible.
