Elvis and Hawaii--An Unbeatable Combination,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Blue Hawaii (Audio CD)
Tired of civilization? Want to escape to a beautiful island paradise? Then this CD is for you. The romantic ballads such as
the title song, "Moonlight Swim," "Hawaiian Sunset" and "Island of Love" evoke images of beautiful sunsets and peaceful blue seas, and the more lively numbers, such as "Almost Always True" and "Steppin' Out of Line" are carefree and fun, which is another aspect of Hawaii.
Hearing the great voice reminds us of why Elvis is still king, even after all these years. And the added songs at the end, which are repeats of earlier songs, with a few off the cuff remarks by Elvis, give us a peak into the spontaneity and ease with which he worked.
This is music to listen to after a difficult day in the "asphalt jungle," music which helps us relax and enjoy and
forget the stresses and strains of modern society, at least for awhile!
