The Memphis Recording Service out of Europe (not Memphis, Tennessee) has issued this album of alternate takes and film-version recordings of the songs from G.I. Blues. Billed as "The Alternate Album Version" this CD oddly includes six "master" takes which have been available since 1960. "Wooden Heart" is listed as take 4, but that is the master. While a few of the alternate takes are new to this release, others have been available from BMG/Sony. I find the audio quality of these tracks not up to the standard of the American releases. On this CD the sound is not warm and natural, but rather bright and cold. The seven monaural movie songs come right off the film soundtrack and you must live with fade ins and fade outs. While there is really nothing wrong with the concept behind this release, it would have been more interesting as all alternate takes, arranged in the original running order of the 1960 album. You get no background information on the recordings other than the take number for each song. If you can't get enough of the alternate takes from G.I. Blues, then you may enjoy this offering and wish to consider the Memphis Recording Service 4-CD set titled "Cafe Europa".
