Elvis Presley - Moody Blue (1977/2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Artist: Elvis Presley
Title: Moody Blue
Genre: Pop Rock, Rock & Roll, AM Pop
Label: © RCA Records, a division of Sony Music Entertainment
Release Date: 1977/2015
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit

Duration: 31:31
Recorded: 1974-1977


The last Elvis Presley album released in the singer's lifetime, Moody Blue has a somewhat checkered history, especially among fans. Issued two months before Presley died, the album sold moderately well until Presley died -- then it soared up the charts to number three, as his most current album, and it ultimately sold two million copies. As to the music, the original ten-song album was a mixed bag of live recordings, interspersed with new studio work from the previous fall at Graceland. For all of its slapped-together feel, however, Moody Blue held up. The title song, authored by Mark James (who'd previously written "Suspicious Minds"), was just about as good a single as Elvis released in the 1970s, topping the country charts earlier in 1977; additionally, he did a superb reinterpretation of the George Jones hit "She Thinks I Still Care." "Little Darlin'" was almost more of a burlesque of the '50s rock & roll standard than a real performance, but it is more than made up for by the presence of the Johnny Ace classic "Pledging My Love," done with depth and sincerity. --AllMusic Review by Bruce Eder

Elvis Presley - Elvis Sings Flaming Star (1968/2013) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Artist: Elvis Presley
Title: Elvis Sings Flaming Star
Genre: Country, Country Pop, Pop Rock, Rock & Roll, AM Pop
Label: © RCA Records, a division of Sony Music Entertainment
Release Date: 1968/2013
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit

Duration: 00:20:45
Recorded: June 1960 to October 1968

In the spring of 1969, after a trough of several years, the public finally seemed genuinely interested in Elvis Presley again -- the NBC special had been broadcast, the first of the Memphis-based, Chips Moman-produced comeback albums was about to be released, he was being heard on the radio again, and it probably seemed like a good idea to test the waters with some budget-priced product. That's the only possible explanation for the existence of Elvis Sings Flaming Star, a low-priced LP that showed up in the late winter of 1969, encompassing songs drawn from across eight years of Elvis' recording history. Even more astonishing is how this seemingly haphazard assembly of material -- including a title song (from one of his best movies) that had not previously appeared on an LP, a live cut from the 1968 NBC special, and a two-song Texas medley that would be completely embarrassing in the hands of anyone else -- holds up as well as it did. It is the voice, of course, that matters here -- Presley's singing was so good at the points captured on this nothing-seeming little budget release that he could make even the most dubious song seem worth two minutes of one's time. And on "Too Much Monkey Business" and "She's a Machine" you even get the hard, edgy side of Elvis that had been obscured by too many third-rate movie songs. The rock music critics who were around in 1969 were never quite sure what to make of this album because it was a given that it was nothing but the most superficial scratching of the surface of that library, yet time has allowed it to age well, as a strange and idiosyncratic (but strangely satisfying on its own terms) compilation. If it added nothing to his reputation in 1969, then it at least offered an inexpensive way for the curious and the unfamiliar to get a smattering of some of his work that was otherwise mostly unavailable at the time. --AllMusic Review by Bruce Eder

Elvis Presley - Elvis Now (1972/2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Artist: Elvis Presley
Title: Elvis Now
Genre: Country, Country Pop, Pop Rock, Rock & Roll, AM Pop
Label: © RCA Records, a division of Sony Music Entertainment
Release Date: 1972/2016
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: HDTracks
Duration: 00:43:22
Recorded: January 22, 1969 – June 8, 1971

Recorded primarily in May and June of 1971, Elvis Now is quintessential '70s Elvis Presley, an eclectic mix of ballads, rockers, and gospel numbers all seemingly arranged with Elvis' lavish Las Vegas stage show very much in mind. Much of the material would have been familiar to a Vegas audience even before they heard Presley perform it. "Help Me Make It Through the Night" had recently been a big hit for Sammi Smith, Ocean's "Put Your Hand in the Hand" had reached number two months before Elvis recorded it, and "Early Morning Rain" was a big country hit for George Hamilton IV in 1966. As usual, Presley's singing is always good and occasionally breathtaking, and his backing band is excellent, if perhaps a little too large for some tastes. This album won't change anyone's mind about Presley's late career output, but taken on its own terms, Elvis Now is a solid effort.

Ella Fitzgerald Sings Sweet Songs for Swingers is a 1959 album by the American jazz singer Ella Fitzgerald, recorded with a studio Orchestra arranged and conducted by Frank DeVol. Ella focuses on well known jazz standards by lesser known songwriters, a useful counterbalance to her continuing songbooks project, which at this time found her in the midst of recording the epic George and Ira Gershwin Songbook.
