Kid Galahad, was Elvis' 10th movie (also featuring Charles Bronson). Again the soundtrack recorded for this movie didn't make it to an LP. An extended play was released in 1962. This release features 50 previously unreleased takes from the Kid Galahad sessions. Hear Elvis fool around and get hold of the songs.

Fascinating to listen to the song develop, as directed by the man himself. Anyone who still calls him a front man after hearing him change tempos, point out split second anomiles, is.....wrong. Some may have been led to believe Elvis always sang to a pre-recorded track (I believe once, '63) would also be wrong. What a band: Scotty Moore, D. J. Fontana; Floyd Cramer on piano and Homer "Boots" Randolph on sax, and other notables.
Not all tunes get the full Presley foray..there are several quickly discarded tries.
Elvis' voice is in great shape (here in '61) and he does his thing; at times, he seems to be trying to actually *entertain* the "fellas". By '63/'64, some of that bright enthusiasm dimmed, without a doubt.
