that would be totally cool to have a FULL remix album! thanks for posting!
There's a new hot remix of Burning Love being used on a Honda commerical and the producer of it has said that it will be featured in full version on an upcomg Elvis Remix Album. All I got to say is that IT'S ABOUT TIME!
ELVIS v.s MOWO!

thats right folks.......
you done read the subject of this journal entry correctly............yes you did!
ELVIS and MOWO! have teamed up to do a little project together.
Ive just done a remix of "HUNK OF BURNIN LOVE"
funky new beats.........gospel sounding piano...........THE KING getting his whoops and hollahs in..........and me..........little old stupid me..........rocking the funkiness.
Initially the remix is going to be featured in a HONDA CR-V ad............and then it will be released as a full version on an ELVIS remixed album.
I have to say this year has been amazing regarding remix projects.........its total an honor and a blast to get to work on these sorts of things. LAter in the YEAR or early next year I have a sort of MARVIN GAYE remix I worked on coming out and Im getting ready to start a BEE GEES remix as well........
but working on a remix for "THE KING" was a trip.........its a fun funky thing.........my goal with these things is always to serve the track as best as possible and not try to fix what isnt broken......so some folks may hear it and say........."wow.....this just puts a smile on my face and still has the same feel" others might say.........."I hate mowo! and id like for him to stop doing remixes and just shut up and finish his new album already so i can buy it and burn a copy of it" ..........HA!!!!!....ok..........i dont think anyone says that.....but if they do.........well.........SUGGIT........is my only response........and its a fitting one!
Now here's a list of uptempo songs by EP from 1964-1976 gthat could very well be used on the album.
It's A Long Lonely highway
Big Boss Man
Hey Little Girl
Hey Hey Hey
High Heel Sneakers
Edge Of Reality
Change Of Habit
She's A Machine
Drums Of The Islands
Stop Look And Listen
Easy Come Easy Go
Clean Up Your Own Back Yard
Let Yourself Go
Guitar Man (from 68)
Wearin' That Loved On Look
Power Of My Love
Stranger In My Own Home Town
Patch It Up
Heart Of Rome
Stranger In The Crowd
Got My Mojo Workin'
It's Only Love
If You Don't Come Back
Raised On Rock
I Got A Feelin' In My Body
If You Talk In Your Sleep
There is definitely enough material to put together a solid well thought out remix album of about 12 to 14 songs. I'm getting excited about this new album's potential and possibluties. Maybe there will be a remix album early 2007 or better yet late 2006, and a re-recorded album for the big 30th Anniversary as if EP himself re-recorded the tracks today. That would be the ultimate and would top 2002's remix and hits album.
Here's the link to the commerical video under "EPE any chance".

could have loved you once
and even said it
But you went away
When you came back it was too late
And Love was a forgotten word
I hope they finally put a remix album out. Then when it flops, it'll put an end to that nonsense.
If it puts Elvis with todays music and todays youth, such as my self, like it, well and good. But this kind of music has lost the love it once had, and i'm quite against it, unless it puts Elvis back in the charts.

i've done a remix of She's a Machine, i just thought it was perfect for a redo, great beat, and what better title to use for redoin' a song with new technolgy. I'm no dj, but i had fun fiddlin' with it.
Definitely a long time coming.
Giving some of the tracks a modern like sound (if they market it right) not only would sound refreshing to the older fans (like me), but also attract younger / newer fans as well, making it a win - win deal.

A remix album sounds great!
I just hope it will be better than the "Too Much Monkey Bussiness" FTD.
And i hope that the remixes won't be crappy!
Without a song, the day would never end; without a song, a man ain't got a friend; without a song, the road would never bend - without a song.'
That's why he still keep singing a song
I hope they promote this album well unlike some other re-releases recently.
I have alot of mixed feelings about projects like this. On one side of the coin , I feel that Elvis's music is best left undisturbed in its natural sence. On the other hand if the remix music sounded more like 70's or even 80's, then perhaps I would get excited about it.
Most kids these days really like the rap and hip hop stuff. I have heard some past remixes with that sound. For example the song "Little less conversation". A friend of mine played it and I felt ill. Or go back to 1981 when the record "Guitar Man" came out. It was a country record with a more modern country sound to it. I have this record. I thought it was ok, but some of it was just a bit on the corney side.
So what I am trying to say is...if this remix cd was made with more class, then I might buy it. I just don't think there is any thing classy about rap, or these electronic weird sounds they use. But then hay, I am in my mid 30's and more set in my ways. What one likes is different then what others like.
I agree "Elvisman76" that if they were to make the album in a rap style, that would ruin the songs completely. What did you think of the remix album "Too Much Monkey Business"?
I look forwards to it.
I loved ALLC and to a lesser extent Rubberneckin
Anyone whos interested in a remix album, why dont you just come to me !?
For those who are "against remixes let me just say that we all have the originals so what on earth is the problem with adding or rearranging the tune to make it sound different and in some cases more modern ??????
Just because a song is remixed it dosent mean that we loose the original, its still there you know. With releasing remix singles also gives the opportunity to put the original mix on the single. Remixes are the way forward for Elvis, Elvis impersonaters are not !!
I've heard that this remix of burning love is done by our own dutch DJ Tiesto...if that's the case we can look forward to a very good remix! Hope he did get the permission from the estate to work on this...if not...we will never see an official release of this album and we can hunt e-bay for this remixed album...
I agree with Patrick ... this project has to be done by a top rate DJ [ALLC for example] ... lets release a quality remix album and bring the King to a new , fresh market
So what will they turn Elvis music into.....a bunch of Rap and hip hop crap....
If the new generation wants to discover Elvis, let em do it the old fashioned way; hear him in his original state of being
Here's my idea-do a remix album, but ad a bonus disc of all the tracks in their original form just digitally remastered for the newer fans to hear both the remixes and the originals. Make the bonus disc free with the purchase of the remix CD. They did this with 30 #1 Hits with the bonus disc of the press conference and The Beatles did it with Let It Be...Naked
I'm not to big on remixes, i like the music the way it was originally recorded or performed, not remixed, but it could be a good thing i guess, maybe attract newer generations of fans, but its not something i'd go looking for.
"How do I get placed in situations like this? Ah hell, I guess it's all part of showbusiness "~ Elvis in his limo on his way to perform in Omaha, NE on June 19th 1977
Can I just point out to you that as soon as Elvis layed down his vocal track, thats when the mixing and remixing begins !
Elvis was always one for progressing in music, im sure he would be all for remixes as long as theyr done tastfully.
