iTunes Review

It's a testament to Elvis Presley's immense talents that no amount of arbitrary record company decisions could dim the energy and excitement of an Elvis LP in the '50s. This "original soundtrack" to Presley's second film is only partly a collection of songs from the movie; half of the tracks are from sessions in January 1957. This set didn't feature many of Elvis' current hits, as was typical for albums of that era. Yet among the included singles was "(Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear," aimed squarely at his young female teenage audience. It landed at No. 1; the album's title track was its b-side and got stuck at merely No. 2. Presley's range let him tear holes into the gleeful and silly "Party" and "Hot Dog" while bringing guitarist Scotty Moore to the forefront for "Mean Woman Blues" and "Got a Lot o' Livin' to Do." With The Jordanaires providing their trusty backing vocal accompaniment, Elvis nails the western-sounding "Lonesome Cowboy." A stomping cover of Ivory Joe Hunter's "I Need You So" and a gentle rendition of Cole Porter's "True Love" further display Presley's impressive range.

Customer Reviews

Loving You (Original Soundtrack) [1957]

This album to Elvis' second movie is not as good as the first two albums, but is still good.This album and "King Creole" are the only good movies and soundtracks.(8.5/10)

Less consistent, but still worth 50 years

Elvis' first soundtrack album does not transfix the listener to the extent that the first two sets do. There are a half dozen Elvis essentials among the tracks, but then more pap and saccharine, as well. In keeping with the western ranch land locale of the movie, Elvis leans heavily toward western folk and swing. So although a weaker album overall, it does demonstrate greater versatility in Elvis the performer.

It's gotta be great if

.....Robert Plant even knew the song "let's have a party" and covered it on a tribute album

Biography

Born: January 8, 1935 in Tupelo, MS

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '50s, '60s, '70s

Elvis Presley may be the single most important figure in American 20th century popular music. Not necessarily the best, and certainly not the most consistent. But no one could argue with the fact that he was the musician most responsible for popularizing rock & roll on an international level. Viewed in cold sales figures, his impact was phenomenal. Dozens upon dozens of international smashes from the mid-'50s to the mid-'70s, as well as the steady sales of his catalog and reissues since his death...
