Wild In The Country in the classic albums series presented in the7" digipack format, with a booklet. Due to the number of songs recorded for the movie, this will be a single disc release. All tracks have been remixed and remastered for this release and sound truly beautiful.
I love the early takes of 'Wild In the country', Elvis really lets loose on the vocal, unfortunately the takes are incomplete but had they of used the early takes to make up the master it could well have surpassed the actual final version of the song. Overall a great purchase for the collector. Personally I have always reckoned that Elvis was at the top of his vocal powers in AD 1960. He had superb vocal control and exceptional range and he had improved vocally at least from the rawness (albeit a very very appealing rawness) of the 1950's.
This is a tremendous collection of stunning ballads and the rocking 'I slipped I stumbled I fell'. The outtakes are interesting and I haven't got tired of listening to 27 versions of 5 songs. Interestingly 'Husky Dusky Day' also appears and though very short (50 seconds) it is quite an amusing little ditty sung in duet with the lovely Hope Lang. One of the best FTD releases by far!
