22. Inside Look at Jailhouse Rock
The first obvious thing you'll notice is the repeated versions of the songs. This is great for the avid fan to whom these disks are directed. Therefore the casual fan, or the new fan should probably choose a different version of the Jailhouse Rock album.
"THE MASTERS" are the well known versions that we are all familiar with. "THE MOVIE VERSIONS" are the songs as they were in the movie, including here and there bits of the dialog. Among these is the nearly fogotten treasure, the utterly different version of "Treat Me Nice" that should have been released as a single instead of the version that was released as the flip side of "Jailhouse Rock" in 1957 (track #02 above). (My opinion.) In most of the other Lighthouse "sessions" albums, the transfer from movies is rather crudely done. Not here though. This transfer is great.
"BONUS TRACKS": The three remixes seem mostly to be the original masters with a rather mechanically-produced electronically enhanced beat. It does make the songs seem a bit more modern because in 1957 no musical instrument or recording device could have produced such a heavily booming beat. The two remixed "Jailhouse Rock" tracks also feature different guitar rifs. The "Inside Look at Jailhouse Rock" is an interview with an unidentified man named "Bob" who tells stories about how Elvis worked with the crew and others and the story about swallowing a cap from a tooth which subsequently got lodged in his lung.
I hope this helps the potential buyer to make his or her purchasing decision. I highly recommend it to the avid Elvis fan.
This is worth picking up.
Now,how about King Creole(1958)?
