Recorded in 1976, this album could have been the turning point in Elvis'musical styling. Long gone were the days of the echo-plastered sun recordings or the sometimes "corny" movie soundtracks. Even though he was extremely ill during this period,Elvis poured his heart and soul into each of these recordings. Included on this album are such classics as "Danny boy", "The Last Farewell", "For the heart" and the heart-wreanching "Hurt". (Eat your heart out Pavoratti!) I first bought this album at the age of ten. Seventeen years later it is still my favorite. I highly recommend this album to any fan or person who wishes to familiarize themself with Elvis' final recordings. It is unclear to me why albums such as this one were overlooked by disc jockeys and replaced with the overplayed "classics". Do yourself a favor and add this Gem to your collection.
Thank you, Thank you very much!!!!!!!

This is my very favorite of Elvis's albums! Why? Well, no other album that he ever recorded possesses such a feeling of candidness and self-revelation. Although recorded at a time when Elvis was in turmoil over his personal lifestyle, the songs performed on this album were near and dear to his heart. From the majestic and almost operatic "Hurt" to the tender sentimentality of "Danny Boy", each song exposes the listener to the music that Elvis identified himself with. Granted, this is not your typical Elvis album composed of rock and romance tunes. This album should be purchased because it is a study of the man himself and reveals the true craft that Elvis was so good at perfecting. The compilation of tunes on this album define Elvis in the same way the "68 Comeback Special" did during his return to live performance.The difference---Elvis finally reveals the man behind the myth! Listen to it and you will agree!

...which is where I heard them, but my guess is this is a better way to go. Both this album and Moody Blue were recorded at a studio Felton Jarvis had built for Elvis in his home. The best of those sessions wound up on this album, and the rest is on Moody Blue. The reissued Moody Blue puts all these tracks (minus one) as bonus tracks, and it is striking how much better the album sounds when it gets to these tracks. Songs like "Hurt," "The Last Farewell" and "Bitter They Are..." belong in the canon of classics. Powerful, almost desperate singing.

Why this title for my review? Let me tell you now. Ask some random person you meet what Elvis songs he or she knows. That person will most likely answer you titles like Hound Dog, Don't Be Cruel, Jailhouse Rock and Are You Lonesome Tonight. And off course, these are really classics.
But sadly, people see Elvis as a dumb guy who only made good songs at the beginning of his career (like the ones mentioned before). This upsets me! My God, The Beatles are on TV! Why not Elvis?! My God, people think that Elvis abused young girls ( dumb rumours..!), My God, people think that Elvis only made some bad movies!
If i think about these things, i feel Hurt. And that is the first song from this album. Elvis probably felt Hurt as well. That's not hard to understand. Anyone in his shoes would feel the same way. Always underestimated and misunderstood. That is exactly why the decline started in his life. Elvis did not destroy himself, the people destroyed HIM! Why did they do that? To know that, read this qoute:
"When a true genius appears in this world, you may know him by this sign: That all the dunces are in confederacy against him."
-Dean Swift, 1667 - 1745
This album really tells a lot about the way Elvis felt. Sadly, this kind of music is too good for a lot of people (or should i say "dunces"?). They only see the bad sides of Elvis. (like boring movies)
Now you know why my title is called this way, let me tell you about the songs!
The first one (like mentioned before) is the formidable, majestic, powerful, fantastic song Hurt. This song is really GREAT. Why? First of all, the way he sings it is really astounding. The beginning is great, the spoken middle part is great and the ending is great. Opera singers should be jealous!

I'm 26, and I've been a Presley fan pretty much my entire life. However, I just recently bought this album. My parents had the LP when I was growing up, but for some reason, I never really remember listening to it. But, over the past several months, I have been really getting back into Elvis, and when I saw this album at the store today, I just had to buy it. Actually, it's the Moody Blue/Presley Boulevard split cd. Pretty much most of the other reviews I've read are accurate. This is an EXTREMELY sad album. When I listened to it straight through for the first time, I almost felt emotionally drained. I wouldn't listen to this album when you're extremely depressed....you're liable to hang yourself. (I'm just kidding, but you get the point.) HOWEVER, as somber as this album is, I COULDN'T WAIT to listen to it again. Hence, my 5 star rating. The desperation in Elvis' voice is just amazing. You get the feeling that he is really meaning and FEELING every single word that he is singing. As I've long told other people, love or hate Elvis' "later years", there's no denying that his voice during this period was at it's strongest ever. What a set of pipes!! If you're just getting into Elvis, or only have a couple of his earlier albums, I might not suggest getting this album JUST yet. You sort of need to see and hear his progression up until this point. But, this album is definitely a must-have. If you don't mind sadness and desperation, and love the powerful and awesome voice of Elvis Presley, then you must get this album. I'm going to listen to it again!
