Editorial Reviews

For the first time since Wild in the Country, neither an LP album nor an extended play single was planned for Stay Away, Joe. Although released before Speedway, this film and its soundtrack were made after, the first of Elvis' last five films in the 1960s where musical numbers were kept to a minimum. The recording session took place at RCA Studio B in in Nashville, Tennessee, on October 1, 1967. This compilation is produced and art directed by Ernst Mikael Jørgensen and Roger Semon and mixed and mastered by Vic Anesini & Sebastian Jeansson.

This is a deluxe edition CD of the soundtrack to Stay Away, Joe. This is the first CD exclusively devoted to that movie, since there were only five songs recorded for the movie, which would have made for a really short CD. There were two recording sessions for the soundtrack. The first session was in October of 1967, where three songs were recorded. It was decided that the movie needed one more song, so another session was scheduled for January of 1968. Two songs were recorded for possible inclusion in the film, plus two other songs that had nothing to do with the movie. That makes a total of seven songs, which would be a very short "album". But have no fear, there are a ton of bonus track incuded here, all of which are alternate takes. These alternate takes are among the most interesting of Elvis' career, because Elvis was in a "mood" during the sessions. He curses on most of the alternate takes, and jokes around a lot. As for the quality of the songs, "U.S. Male" is one of his best songs of the late 1960's, and the other songs are good, which one exception. That exception is "Dominic", which is one of the worst songs that Elvis ever recorded and Elvis asked that it never be released on a record (oops). This is a fun CD, but the price and the duplication of songs makes it only of interest to hardcore Elvis fans.

The movie itself was Elvis worst.How they ever got screen legends Burgess Merith,Joan Blondell,and Thomas Gomez to do this I cant figure out.Must have been a low point.I wonder if they were still talking to Elvis when it was done and reached the public?
However,the songs and soundtrack is a must have for Elvis fans.Songs and outakes Stay Away,Stay Away Joe,All I needed was the Rain,Going Home,US Male(Not from film)etc.are worth the price tag.
Perfect Quality.
