This CD was originally released with the "Concert Anthology" release. It features "remixes" with some former members of the Stray Cats playing along with six of Elvis' early live performances from the 1950's. The result is interesting and makes one wish that Elvis had lived long enough to have a real jam session with the Stray Cats (of course if he had, The Colonel never would have allowed such a session). Most of the tracks sound pretty good. "Good Rockin Tonight" sounds like Elvis is singing through a megaphone, which is not a bad effect but takes a listen or two to get used too. They did not do a very good job of melding the old and new recordings on "Tweedle Dee" because it is obvious when they turn on and off the original recording. The others are not as obvious.

Reviewer: giles_uk from Tunbridge Wells, Kent, United Kingdom

If you love Elvis and the Stray Cats then this is essential.

Elvis "Sings" and 2 of the 3 Stray Cats "Play the Instruments". Would have been awesome if the Elvis tape used was from the "Sun Recordings" and not the inferior radio show tapes. But that is not the fault of: Elvis, 2 of the 3 Stray Cats, or the Sound Engineers.

I have all these "as originally recorded" and "heck" I still enjoy this CD. If you are an Elvis purist and can't stand anything but the original "as recorded" then this is not for you. BUT if you love anything / everything Elvis (and I do) then try these. It would be great to have all of "The Kings" mono recordings re-done with new, but authentic backing music in stereo. The purist need not buy them, but if tastefully done I would certainly re-buy the "modern" re-recordings .

BMG/Sony: Since you own the rights to the pre- 1973 Elvis Catalogue isn't this a great way for you to make more money ????

This is a great CD, a very well produced collaboration between two time periods. The instrumentation played in the new millenium provided by members of the String Cats and Stray Cats, which replaces Scotty Moore and Bill Black, goes really well with Elvis's live performance pieces from the mid 50s. I am amazed how well done this is, especially the first two songs which seem flawless. The new back-up band from the present breathes new life to Elvis's classic hits from his rockabilly days. My only complaint is that this CD has far too few songs. I would love to hear more of Elvis's hit rock n' roll songs from the 50s get similar treatment from rockabilly artists of today. Anyway, it's great to listen too and I enjoy the new treatment to these songs a lot. Elvis will rock the house forever.
