3.0 out of 5 stars Armchair quarterback's always moanin'., August 7, 2006
This review is from: Live a Little, Love a Little / Charro! / The Trouble With Girls / Change of Habit (Audio CD)
This CD features the soundtracks to the last four Elvis Presley movies. This is possible because none of these soundtracks had more than six songs.

Live a Little, Love a Little features four good songs, including one great one, "A Little Less Conversation". This song was not a hit at the time, but it gained newfound popularity a few years ago in a remixed version. This CD includes two versions of "A Little Less Conversation", the "movie version" and the "album version", but they sound the same to me.

The Charro! soundtrack features two songs, but only the title song actually made it into the movie. Both songs are okay, nothing special. But "Charro!" does have a spaghetti western feel to it that is different from any other Elvis song.

The Trouble with Girls featured six songs. "Clean Up Your Own Backyard" is a great song which was a minor hit, but deserved to be a bigger hit. "Almost" and "Swing Down, Sweet Chariot" are good songs, although "Chariot" isn't as good as the version of it Elvis recorded a few year earlier. "Signs of the Zodiac" is a goofy novelty song, which is a duet between Elvis and actress Marlyn Mason (she does most of the singing). "The Whiffenpoof Song" and "Violet" are very short versions of collegiate songs. The CD also includes undubbed versions of "Clean Up Your Own Backyard" (no horns or girl singers) and "Almost" (no strings).

Change of Habit features five songs, four of which aren't too good. "Rubberneckin'", on the other hand, is a great song. Of course, it wasn't specifically recorded for the movie, either.

A little over half the songs on this CD are good, which may make it worthwhile for an Elvis fan to seek out.
