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 Upgraded sound from Double Features release March 11, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This newly remastered soundtrack has a much more dynamic sound, and directional stereo, than the Double Features release (with Kid Galahad) from the 1990s. This new CD sounds much more like the old vinyl LP but with the advantages of CD - no ticks, pops, inner groove distortion, etc. Listen to "Return To Sender", the Boots Randolph sax intro comes much more from the left channel (like the LP), and the overall soundstage is much more vital and distinct. A great upgrade for a great price!

4.0 out of 5 stars Elvis sings like a bird [seagull?....] February 12, 2010
By Phil S.
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Okay, they didn't re-mix, but this time the original, flat mix is fine with me - works along the lines of the lean and light musical that Paramount presented back in the Kennedy era, when all was happy and hopeful, and Elvis was engaged during filming and recording of under-appreciated teen flicks.

I agree about the clunkers, but Elvis' singing and some terrific melodies and beats make it a groovy, uplifting listen. More demanding fans might note that the musical soundtrack has nothing "Hawaiian" about it - I cannot detect a ukelele, etc. on the whole l.p.

Title tune, of course, is a fantastic Lieber-Stoller mirthful uptempo, interestingly enough, a semi-flop for the great Coasters, the year before. All the fast songs are hip and infectious. Ballads are really beautiful, especially the deleted after-hours, poignant lament "I Don't Want To" (fans note that the movie trailor has a snippet from the deleted movie scene!); the ethereal "Where Do You Come From?", another song edited from the story. (Elvis *speaks* the title in a nicely lit scene).

Cool price-tag for this 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.

1962's Girls! Girls! Girls! was Elvis' eleventh film, the first of three with "Girls" in the title, and the only in his filmography to be nominated for an award (a Golden Globe for Best Musical, losing to The Music Man). Like most of Elvis' soundtracks, this one was recorded in Hollywood with a mix of West Coast studio players (including legendary Wrecking Crew drummer Hal Blaine) and Elvis regulars (including Scotty Moore, D.J. Fontana, and the Jordanaires). The catchy title track was written by Leiber and Stoller and was previously a hit for the Coasters. Sped up and rearranged into smoother pop, it still has the Coasters' characteristic bounce and a fine sax solo from Bobby Keys. The album's standout is Otis Blackwell's "Return to Sender," which was also the soundtrack's only hit, peaking at #2 on the Billboard chart and hitting #1 on Cashbox.

The bulk of the album features good-if-not-great rock `n' roll numbers and several forgettable ballads.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's worth the effort! May 15, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I remember really enjoying the movie when I was a kid. Then, after several years have passed it's not as fun as it used to be. The same with the music. It's a fun listen. But nothing really jumps out and says "classic" But, then, maybe it doesn't neet to.

3.0 out of 5 stars A nice set for avid Elvis fans February 17, 2008
By A Fan
Format:Audio CD
The soundtrack for Girls! Girls! Girls! was a big hit in the US when it was released in late 1962 reaching number 3 on the album chart and was certified GOLD by the RIAA. This CD includes one of Elvis' signature songs, Return to Sender, which was a huge hit worldwide. It peaked at number 2 on the US singles chart and was certified PLATINUM. It's flip side, Where Do You Come From, was a minor hit just cracking the top 100. The title song was a hit in other countries including France. This release includes numerous alternate takes not available on the original release.

Format:Vinyl
Between July 1957 and April '65, Elvis Presley's movie soundtracks were big sellers for RCA Victor. All eleven made Billboard's Top Ten, with four #1s, at least five RIAA certified Gold and two Platinum records.

Issued in Nov.'62, the soundtrack to GIRLS! GIRLS! GIRLS! (LPM/LSP 2426) peaked at #3 on the Top Pop Albums chart, #4 on Billboard's 200 Albums list. It made Gold status in mid '63.

One month before this LP's debut, two of its songs, "Return to Sender" and "Where Do You Come From" were issued on a single. "Return.." was a #2 on Billboard Hot 100, while "Where Do You..." managed to make #99.

RANDOM NOTES
The rockin' title song includes a Boots "Yakety Sax" solo. "Where Do You Come From" and "I Don't Want To" are quiet ballads w/piano and Jordanaires backing. "We'll Be Together" is introed by a complex Spanish guitar riff. It has a woodblock Latin beat. "Earth Boy" is a pseudo-Oriental tune unique in the Presley canon. Bongos are featured on "Song of the Shrimp," a 'Creole' ballad of a baby crustacean who's leaving his mama and papa. Done seriously tongue-in-cheek.

MUSICIANS
Elvis Presley (vocals); The Jordanaires (backing vocals); The Amigos (backing vocals: "We'll Be Together"); Boots Randolph (sax/clarinet); Scotty Moore, Tiny Timbrell, Barney Kessel (electric guitar); Robert Bain, Alton Hendrickson (guitars: "We'll Be Together"); Dudley Brooks (piano); Harold Brown (organ: "Thanks to the Rolling Sea"); Ray Seigel (bass); D.J. Fontana, Hal Blaine, Bernie Mattinson (drums)

This CD is not as good as Blue Hawaii and GI Blues, but much better than any of the movie CDs after 1964. The title song, Girls!, Girls!, Girls!, is infectious and well-sung. Read more
