Customer Reviews

Elvis Aaron Presley is one of the biggest-selling artists of all-time.
Linda H. Proctor
Gordon Lightfoot's "Early Morning Rain" is given a relaxed, sensitive reading that fits the song well, and it's handled with great care.
Anthony Nasti
This tremendous work showcases not only Elvis' love for a variety of music but his God given ability to sing all kinds.

Elvis Now is one of if not his best 70's album...a classic no doubt.This tremendous work showcases not only Elvis' love for a variety of music but his God given ability to sing all kinds.We Can Make The Morning is the stand alone song from this set and ranks as one of his best songs from the 70s period.Help Me Make It Through The Night shows off his love for country music but it doesn't sound "country"...it has that Elvis sound.Until Its Time for You To Go is another great gem on this set and was one of the standards for his live shows in the early 70s...Sylvia is a powerful ballad that tells a great story...Elvis' voice is so strong on this song it'll rattle the glass if the volume is up...This entire CD is great.I love mine and listen to it often.If you don't understand this whole "Elvis Thing" you will after listening to Elvis Now.

This is an ok album, not particularly strong, but not that bad either. It was released in early 1972 and peaked at 43 on the US album chart and would eventually be certified GOLD. It did better in the UK reaching 12 on the album chart. It produced one modest hit single "Until It's Time for You to Go" reached the top 40 on the US singles chart and top ten on the Adult Contemporary chart. It was also a top 10 hit in the UK. My favorite song on the album is an up-tempo, rockin' blues number "I Was Born About Ten Thousand Years Ago". "Put Your Hand in the Hand" is pretty good too. "Hey Jude" was recorded in the late 60's and it sounds like Elvis was just fooling around with it. His voice is really straining and he is making-up some lyrics. It should never have been released. The fact that it was, is just another indicator of how poorly managed Elvis was and how desperate his label was for studio recordings by him.

"Elvis Now" was originally released on vinyl in 1972 and the majority of the songs come from sessions held at RCA's Studio B in Nashville. However, just one song actually comes from the famous American Sound Studio Memphis sessions, held on January 21st 1969 and that is "Hey Jude"! The first two songs from Studio B come from a June 1970 session, with "I Was Born 10,000 Years Ago" getting it's first proper release here. It was previously used fading in & out between the tracks on "Elvis Country". From a session held in March 1971 Gordon Lightfoot's "Early Morning Rain" was committed to wax, and it's a particularly delicate version, with good guitar work from Chip Young. A very long session, known as the "Nashville Marathon", from 15th to 21st June of the same year produced five more Studio B tracks, including the Hit Single "Until It's Time For You To Go/We Can Make The Morning". Interestingly this session also produced "The Miracle Of The Rosary", which has been rather mysteriously 'dropped' from several of his gospel albums. So get it here while you can! Another gospel song, the infectious "Put Your Hand In The Hand" is the final Studio B offering, from a session held on June 6th 1971. For those who may think Elvis only exists from 100 "Greatest Hits" compilations this album contains material you may well not have heard. For only $6.98 it's well worth expanding your Elvis horizons!

One of the strangest Elvis albums out there, mixing middle of the road, with pop, and Gospel. Elvis sings *out* on all tracks, especially on the "Miracle of the Rosary" and "We Can make The Morning", a B-sider all the way for EP, although it rings out nice and clean right here on this '72 release - a modest little beat ballad with an arresting hook.

The album altogether is a bit downbeat, especially kicking off with "Help Me Make It Through The Night", a great worldweary warble by the big man; then, followng immediately up with a modern Gospel tune. I was already looking for my Frankie and Johnny CD.

Terrific mediocrities include the '69 session leftover, "Hey Jude", ironically the best-produced track here - now wonder, as it came from the Chips Moman sessions. It's alwatys fun tp hea Elvis on a presumptive spur-of-the-moment muse, but the lyric adjust is too much - all I can imagine is a group of co-eds laughing at how the "former King" couldn't handle the sacrosanct number from the
"new Kings". A reviewer on Amazpon wrote that Presley did not sound Presley on this album - he was probably thinking of this semi-embarrassment. (El, y'mean there was no Carl Perkins song spinnin' 'round in your head, you coulda launched into, instead?).

The best track for me is "Sylvia", another Country ballad which Elvis devours. No lazy crooning here. A solid effort, though it's really album-only stuff.

To close out an unexciting (but musically adventurous) album is the Ricky Nelson arrangement of "Fools Rush In". I guess Elvis did it as a favor to his lead guitarist, James Burton, who played that classic break on the 1964 hit.

I have always been a big fan of Elvis, since I was 5 yrs. old. That was in 1964 when I first heard Elvis. My sister was 18 at the time and she had a bunch of albums including Elvis Presley. She would let me play her records on the record player. I always listened to Elvis sing and have always loved his singing. I was so interested in buying this CD because he has a song called "Sylvia", and my name is Sylvia. I use to have the album back in the 70's but it got stolen from me, along with other things, and I had not been able to replace it until now. Thanks so much for having it in stock!!! I would recommend anyone who likes Elvis to buy this CD. Thanks again!!
