This is an album that really deserves another listen.

This album and "That's The Way It Is" represent the best Elvis had to offer.

"ELVIS", also known as the "Fool" album, was the first release after the very successful "Aloha from Hawaii" special and album (which went to number One on the charts).
But, when this album was released in the summer of '73, it only hit #50 on the charts! Why is that? Perhaps lack of promotion from RCA?
This album contains tracks recorded from 1971 to 1972 (one which is from a Las Vegas performance). All songs on this release have something to offer: "Fool" and "Where Do I Go From Here" are pleasant tunes that are decidedly "non-commercial" by Elvis standards.
"Love Me, Love the Life I Lead" is probably one of the most overlooked Elvis performances. He sings it tough, hitting lots of high notes and showing a lot of expressionism. A classic!
"It's Still Here", "I'll Take You Home Again, Kathleen" and "I Will Be True" were all recorded alone in the studio with Elvis alone at the piano. Overdubbs were added later. These give you a feel of intimacy as Elvis sings his heart out.
"It's Impossible" is Elvis' cover of a Perry Como hit. It's probably the weakest track on the album, but weak doesn't necessarily mean BAD. It's just not my personal fave, that's all.
"For Lovin' Me" was recorded during Elvis' "folk music" period (when he also recorded "Early Morning Rain"). This is a nice cover of a song he heard Peter, Paul and Mary do.
"Padre" is a favorite song of Elvis' (as he mentions on the interview found on the "King of Rock and Roll-The Complete 50s Masters" box set. This is quite a performance, starting out calmly and leading up to a crescendo ending, as only Elvis could do.

It's amazing that so few people know about can be such a wonderful experience over and over. This album and "That's The Way It Is" represent the best Elvis had to offer. "Elvis" offerings include the phenominal "Fool", the heartfelt "Love The Life I Lead" and "Padre". Bob Dylan's "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright" get's a first class treatment, and a nice version of the standard "It's Impossible" is also included. "I'll Take You Home Again Kathleen" and"It's Still Here" are raw Elvis. These tracks have Elvis on vocals and piano with a small bass part in the background. What this album shows is the emotion that the King was going through during this period of his life. The emotion shows in his voice and the power in which he delivers the songs. If you want a top notch album this is the one to have.

This is a really great album. I had the vinyl from years ago and recently went and got the CD. Those who say Elvis lost the plot in the seventies should give this a good listen. It's hard to pick the best track but a personal favourite is 'Love the Life I lead'. Turn it up loud...it's great stuff! The ballads are great too, particularly 'It's Still here'. Elvis is in fine voice throughout. Highly recommended.

At first glance you might not think this album rates...but after listening to it...no doubt it is a great album.Where Do I go From Here is a great song and Elvis' voice is solid.His ability to play the piano is on showcase in the songs It's Still Here,I'll Take You Home Kathleen and I will Be True....still here and kathleen being the two best.It's Impossible is a solid song and a often heard song for his live shows thru out the mid-70s including the vegas concerts.But what makes this album so great are the two seldom heard songs...Love me,Love the Life I lead and Padre.Life is just a classic...and how it has escaped our notice is a mystery.Clearly it served as a way for Elvis to make a defiant statement...Padre is a gutt wrenching passionate cry from the heart...a song that fit his voice perfectly.get this CD for those two gems alone.

While Elvis was on the decline for the most part during the mid to late '70s, this album does contain some strong material. The main song, "Fool", is a good feature of his vocals. It also has some other gems in songs like, "Love Me, Love The LIfe I Lead", "Where Do I Go From Here", "(That's What You Get) For Lovin' Me", the live concert version of "It's Impossible" and the closing track of "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right." This album, along with "From Elvis Presley Boulvard, Memphis, Tennessee" and "Promised Land", are probably my three favorite Elvis albums from the 1970s.

many people say elvis couldnt sing during the 1970's cuz of his drug use and yada yada. how wrong his critics are. elvis was at his best vocally in the 1970's and the songs he recorded during this period are mistreated due to many fans not wanting to let go of the 1950's to early 1960's elvis where he sang kid songs such as hound dog and dont be cruel. this album here shows how great elvis's voice was duringthis time the songs from begining to end are great to the ear and need more reconition as do many of his songs from the 1970's. people should buy this cd and cassette if they want to know the real elvis if you disliked his rock n roll stuff. my favorite song here is "love me, love the life i lead" as elvis sings in the song "Oh, if youre gonna love me, love the life I lead
Need the things I need, dont try to change me
If youre gonna take me, take me for what I am
I cant be another man, I cant be free
cos the life I lead is the life I lead"
