Editorial Reviews

The original 14-track, double-platinum soundtrack album, plus goodies like the movie version of Steppin' Out of Line , which was cut from the final print, and six unreleased alternate takes (of Rock-A-Hula-Baby; Beach Boy Blues; Blue Hawaii; Can't Help Falling In Love , and Steppin' Out of Line again)!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Elvis soundtrack album...and the longest! November 3, 2002
By Josh P.
Format:Audio CD
The original 1961 album release of "Blue Hawaii", had 14 songs on it. Now this expanded version has 22. Is that good or what? The new 8 extra tracks, except one, have never been released before. Isn't that great? It was about time they were pulling some unreleased takes of songs out of the vaults. This is something that is quintessential to every Elvis fan. "Blue Hawaii" features the title song, "No More", "Can't Help Falling In Love", "Rock-a-Hula-Baby", "Moonlight Swim","Hawaiian Wedding Song", plus more. "Steppin' out of Line", the original, was the one bonus track already released. It was released one year after the original "Blue Hawaii" album came out on "Pot Luck". By the way, be sure to get that one as well. This is an outstanding job RCA did on this! "Dreams come true in blue Hawaii, and mine could all come true, this magic night of nights with you." (Elvis Presley). Elvis rocks all the way!

5.0 out of 5 stars Elvis and Hawaii--An Unbeatable Combination July 22, 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Tired of civilization? Want to escape to a beautiful island paradise? Then this CD is for you. The romantic ballads such as

the title song, "Moonlight Swim," "Hawaiian Sunset" and "Island of Love" evoke images of beautiful sunsets and peaceful blue seas, and the more lively numbers, such as "Almost Always True" and "Steppin' Out of Line" are carefree and fun, which is another aspect of Hawaii.

Hearing the great voice reminds us of why Elvis is still king, even after all these years. And the added songs at the end, which are repeats of earlier songs, with a few off the cuff remarks by Elvis, give us a peak into the spontaneity and ease with which he worked.

This is music to listen to after a difficult day in the "asphalt jungle," music which helps us relax and enjoy and

forget the stresses and strains of modern society, at least for awhile!

5.0 out of 5 stars Elvis Hawaiian stlye November 11, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is great soundtrack to a very entertaining and fun to watch musical/movie. All the songs that I heard on the movie "Blue Hawaii" is on this album, plus an extra song not used in the movie called "Steppin' Out of Line". This is not a rock n' roll album, maybe Hawaiin rock on a couple of songs ("Rock-A-Hula Baby" and "Slicin' Sand"), but the music is still very much Elvis. Elvis has a very nice voice and add them to very well composed songs, and it will equal to great sounding music. I like every song on the album, but my personal favorites are "Almost Always True", "No More", "Moon Light Swim", "Ku-U-I-Po", and "Beach Boy Blues". So take a trip with Elvis to Hawaii, and listen to the sounds of "Blue Hawaii".

5.0 out of 5 stars I've never even been an Elvis fan, either. November 24, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
So THAT'S what all the fuss is about.
I'm talking about the fact that this movie is considered so huge, was such a big hit, that it was Elvis's most popular movie and that the soundtrack was his most popular one as well as one of his biggest hit albums.
I've been familiar with Elvis all my life, but I've never been an Elvis fan. Neither have I hated him. Sure I thought he had an incredible voice, but nevertheless I simply considered him a performer in history, no more, no less. I've only heard a smattering of his songs like Jailhouse Rock, Hound Dog, Love Me Tender, Heartbreak Hotel. And those songs never caught my interest. I have never seen an Elvis movie before in my life.
All of which puts me in an extremely unique position that makes my comments valuable to amazon.com customers, to be able to make an entirely unbiased (in either direction) review, to be able to judge the movie Blue Hawaii as a MOVIE and its soundtrack album as a SOUNDTRACK ALBUM, and neither one of them as "the big hit Elvis project". What got me to check this out? Credit goes to the Disney CD "Lilo & Stitch Island Favorites". I had bought it and heard for the very first time the Elvis song "Blue Hawaii" and fell in love with it. So much so that I decided to rent the movie of the same name for a lark even though my family was all telling me how stupid and ridiculous his movies all were. But when I popped the movie into my vcr I was going, "Hey! This is a great movie! It's fun and innocent and enjoyable and funny, and it has lots and lots and lots of gorgeous Hawaiian cinematography!" And best of all, it was filled with wall to wall music I enjoyed. I mean, I loved each and every single note in the film. So I rushed out to buy this album the very next day.

4.0 out of 5 stars Elvis' biggest hit album! October 7, 2006
By A Fan
Format:Audio CD
Blue Hawaii is certainly one of Elvis' best soundtrack albums from the 60's and was his biggest hit album. It stayed at number 1 on the US album charts for a then record 20 weeks! It contains one of his signature songs "Can't Help Falling In Love" and the modest hit "Rock-A-Hula Baby". This CD release is made even better than the original by the includsion of several bonus tracks including an alternate movie version of "Can't Help Falling In Love" that I really like. This was Elvis' commercial peak!

Unfortunately the success of this album and the previous soundtrack "GI Blues" convinced Elvis' management that the way to make the quick buck was to make lighthearted comedy movies and associated soundtrack albums. From here on out the movies and soundtracks would sink in quality and sales.
