4.0 out of 5 stars Camden Classis - Ahhh, The Memories! November 29, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Elvis fans who grew up in the age of the vinyl LP will no doubt have fond memories of the Camden budget LP's. For many of us, during our younger days, these LP's were very affordable when the only income you had coming in was an allowance from your parents or from summer jobs mowing lawns, or winters shoveling snow....Those carefree days of childhood!

"I Got Lucky" is the latest release in a string of remastered CD re-releases of these quasi-classics. While typically devoid of any radio hits, they offered fans access to some of Elvis's music that wasn't readily available at the time the original LP's were released. The cover art reflected what you might expect from a 70's era budget release, however, "I Got Lucky" stands out in that it shows a slim, trim picture of Elvis in concert from 1970 in a plain white suit, long before the caricature of self parody would take root.

That there are no radio hits to be found on this release doesn't mean there aren't great songs within! The title track, taken from the soundtrack to Elvis' "Kid Galahad" movie is an infectious early 60's pop tune that you can't help but love. The hidden gem that is Elvis' cover of the Leiber & Stoller penned "Fools Fall In Love" belongs on everyone's list of favorite Elvis songs......Another feel-good song, featuring great sax work from the late, great Boot Randolph.

These releases are pure nostalgia....One hundred percent fun, nothing more, nothing less. The songs have been remastered by Vic Anesini, who has earned a great deal of praise for the remastering work he's done on Elvis' catalog.....Praise rightly deserved as listenign to these songs will attest, they've never sounded better!

So, pick-up an Elvis Camden CD, slip it on the CD player, close your eyes and spend some time reliving the good old days!

4.0 out of 5 stars Some terrific songs and sonics! July 22, 2011
By Phil S.
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Looka here, this album is good- just take away 1-2 "fillers" and you have some of Presley's most outstanding vocals in a cool package (even has decent cover art - Elvis in Soulful stage stance). WHAT A WONDERFUL LIFE is a vastly under-appreciated song from a strong comedy he did in 1961; IF YOU THINK I DON'T NEED YOU, an exceptional uptempo co-written by pal and songwriter Red West; I GOT LUCKY [maybe a tad too laid back but to this Reviewer a possible model for James Brown's I FEEL GOOD (I GOT YOU)].

Ballads are also above board: HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS from another good early '60s Elvis flick; and, I NEED SOMEBODY TO LEAN ON, is surely one Elvis best movie songs and best production numbers. He excelled at the moody, introspective ballad.

FOOLS FALL IN LOVE is El's version of the Drifters' great 1950's mid-hit; not his best effort but a fine, classy choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Memory lane August 7, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I remember my dad buying this record in the budget bin in 1982 or so. I was in the store with him and saw it and pointed it out. I was 7ish.
I must have put that record on a thousand times, it was fun and seemed to showcase Elvis's versatility, especially in movie songs. That said, "Yoga is as yoga does" is by no means a masterpiece but the record in general has some fantastic music. "I got lucky" "Home is where the heart is" "I need somebody to lean on" is amazing as is "Stop, your wrong again". The whole cd sounds great and is a great selection of movie songs in general.

5.0 out of 5 stars i've been waiting for this one October 18, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
i've been here(Amazon) a few times over the years looking for this one. i gave it 5 stars mostly for nostalgia sake as it was the 1st Elvis album i ever bought(i was about 9 or 10 at the time). though it isn't "chock full O hits," i still enjoy all the songs with fond memories & it's one i'll purchase now that i don't have to pay in blood to a private party for a worn out copy; i can't wait to receive this.

3.0 out of 5 stars For the die-hard fan March 17, 2011
Format:Audio CD
There are a few good songs on this collection, but I wouldn't necessarily recommend it to the casual listener. Its more for the hardcore Elvis fan who just cant get enough Elvis. Actually, its not a terrible compilation really, except for "Yoga Is As Yoga Does" (from the movie "Easy Come, Easy Go"), which is probably one of the worst songs ever recorded by anybody in the history of sound reproduction. I'm sure Elvis would never have a recorded a song like that if he were not obligated to do so. I could think of a million better songs that could have taken it's place here (in which case I might have given it 4 stars!).

All in all this compilation is not representative of Elvis' best work, but its something the die-hard fans will want to have.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Excellent" July 6, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Here again we have a great release. As I stated I really enjoy these Camden releases. I think there just awesome. I still have the LP I bought in Jr. High. Like I said when I bought this many songs I've never heard before. The sound tracks they were from were deleted. I would buy this LP if you love Elvis. You can read my reveiw on Elvis sings hits from his movies Vol. 1. This review stands for all the Camden reases. Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vast improvement over the vinyl October 29, 2010
By phmlpn
Format:Audio CD
While it is true there are no "hits" here, there is one fact worth pointing out: While the original LP was mono, this CD is (mostly) true stereo, the exception being "What a Wonderful Life".
