Elvis Aaron Presley was born to Vernon and Gladys Presley in a two-room house in Tupelo, Mississippi, on January 8, 1935.

5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC SOUND April 7, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This re-issue of the G I BLUES soundtrack is the best ever. The sound quality is the best and RCA has gone to the limit on this one. On 26JAN10, RCA released seven other soundtracks along with this one and all have the same fantastic sound. Those titles were GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS; FUN IN ACAPULCO; VIVA LAS VEGAS; ROUSTABOUT; GIRL HAPPY; FRANKIE AND JOHNNY and CLAMBAKE. I would highly recommend all of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Takes Me Back 40 Years January 4, 2007
Format:Audio CD
During the mid 1960s I owned every Elvis record available. My favourite was GI Blues. Having this CD, with the cover being identical to that of the vinyl record, takes me back 40 years. The quality of the recording was excellent and I would recommend it to any Elvis afficionado.

5.0 out of 5 stars His best soundtrack from the 1960's April 5, 2009
By A Fan
Format:Audio CD
This was one of Elvis' biggest hit albums, staying at number 1 on the US album chart for 8 weeks. It did this despite not producing a big hit single in the US (although "Wooden Heart" was a huge hit internationally, it never charted in the US). In my opinion, it is his best 1960's movie soundtrack (though not quite as good as some of his groundbreaking 1950's soundtracks). "Shopping Around" is an underapreciated rocker and I also really liked "Pocket Full of Rainbows" and "GI Blues". It is a shame that this CD has to be imported. A superior collection of early 60's pop and rock!

I would recommend that you pass on this version and get the 1997 release if you can still find it. It includes several bonus tracks not included on this release.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extreme Elvis August 20, 2001
Format:Audio CD
As an avid Elvis Fan, I have loved this movie since the first time I saw it. As with all of Elvis' music, you hear it, and get straight into it, and just can't get enough. Didja Ever would have to be my favorite, because I see it as a typical Elvis song, and everything about it, has the sign of a great Elvis song. Would just like to thank my Dad for ever making me listen to Elvis.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Soundtrack July 11, 2010
Format:Audio CD
This may be a little corny, but I am an old man now. When I was in the service in 1968. I was in basic training and on one of our roadtrips I sang "Didja Ever?" with the troops in the back of our truck. I sang the Elvis part and the rest of the men sang the chorus. Yes it actually happened. It's a great Album and it holds great memories for me.

3.0 out of 5 stars +1/2 -- A few essential tunes and some soundtrack dregs January 26, 2010
Format:Audio CD
There are a number of commonly held misconceptions about Elvis Presley's film career: Elvis couldn't act, his movies were all throwaways, and the soundtracks were populated entirely with substandard material. But key films in the King's catalog show that he could indeed act, if called upon, there are several high-quality dramatic and musical films in Elvis' oeuvre, alongside many good lightweight romantic musical comedies, and his soundtracks are laced with hits and terrific albums sides. To measure the highpoints of Elvis' soundtrack catalog by virtue of the low points (of which there are admittedly many) is to miss out on a valuable dimension of Presley's musical career.

1960's G.I. Blues was Elvis' fifth film and, unsurprisingly given the film's topic, the first feature made after his discharge from the army. Like many of his soundtracks, this set includes several eminently forgettable pop songs, many from the pen of Sid Wayne. Elvis still manages to charm, even when asked to rhyme "thrillable" and "syllable" on "What's She Really Like." The driving train rhythm and twangy guitar solo underlying "Frankfort Special" suggest Elvis' early work at Sun, but the lyric quickly reveals itself as only capable of narrating the plot. "Shoppin' Around" also has a great rock `n' roll beat and weak lyrics, and the lullaby "Big Boots" has a winning vocal, but similarly vacuous words. Better is the `40s-styled jazz melody and the Jordanaires close harmonies on Sid Tepper's title song.

The album's highlight is Elvis sweet and delicate vocal on "Wooden Heart.
