"King Creole" is right up there with "Loving You" Again, watch the movie first, then hear the teriffic music. You're going to love both. The main title theme starts off the soundtrack. High-energy tracks. They include "King Creole", "As Long As I Have You", "Hard Headed Woman", "Dixieland Rock", "Young Dreams", and more. This is a teriffic Elvis soundtrack reissue. The only flaw with this is even with more tracks it is still too short. Heck, I listened to it several dozen times, and I'm satisfied. What RCA can retrieve from the vaults, is what we get. We need more reviews on Elvis' music and his movies, PLEASE! It goes to show you how little he's appreciated in some areas.

This is the soundtrack to Elvis' fourth (and arguably best) movie. It features Elvis at the top of his game, singing great songs like "King Creole", "Hard Headed Woman" and "Trouble". This soundtrack was the first time Elvis worked with a horn section. This CD adds seven bonus tracks to the original album. I highly recommend it.

"King Creole" is a must for Elvis fans everywhere. I love the cover photo with him in that outfit. RCA and BMG really did an excellent job on remaking some of Elvis' career albums, and adding new songs on them. On "King Creole" all of the extra tracks except one had never released before! Elvis' daughter, Lisa Marie, is trying to get RCA and BMG to take all of the unreleased takes and songs out of the RCA vaults and release them all. I hope she succeeds. Right now, Follow That Dream records and RCA have relaesed six new CDs where everything is previously unreleased material. On track 16 of "King Creole" Elvis talks before he begins singing "Steadfast, Loyal, and True". He says "On the first part, the tempo? A little? Yeah? Really? Huh?" and after a second the music begins. You must own this if you are an Elvis fan!

This is a soundtrack of the movie by the same name. And it's good. Some songs have horn arrangements ("Hard Headed Woman", "Trouble", Dixieland Rock", "New Orleans"), "Danny" is a beautiful fifties rock 'n' roll ballad and the title track is fabulous!

I loved this film when I first saw it...I was only 10 at the time and I learned all the words to every song back then and remember them now at age 58

The CD is wonderful...good sound, clear and just plain lovely..

This was Elvis's very favorite movie that he made. From the first song "Crawfish" to the last, this is Elvis at his best. I bought this CD just for the Crawfish song. You wont be dissapointed if you loved the movie.

Presley really shows a great range in style with this album. The soundtrack is the best of his career and one of the best Rock albums ever produced. A must for Rock fans!

Saw this movie when it first came out....I wasn't quite a teenager but it made me feel like one. There was a darkness in this movie something like Rebel Without a Cause set in New Orleans. Elvis was even darker than James Dean....in this movie. I had lived in New Orleans in the early fifties with my family. This brings back a lot of memories.

Violence, brutality, Organized Crime.... sex, and death....surrounded Danny, the main character. Elvis brought some light to this brutal story with his on screen performance....riveting for it's time. Some say that he couldn't act....well, when you consider the Colonel, he did amazingly well.
The music captured here on this soundtrack brings the light. Great performances by Elvis. Great ballads and yes ma'am, he could swing and he could rock.

Being a young kid back in 1958 and seeing Elvis....it seemed like magic. At the time the only cultural heroes of the fifties that had gone were James Dean and Hank. I'm gonna have a beer and drink to ole heroes and villains.....and all my old friends. They're all gone.....and soon I will be too.....

This soundtrack is a must for those that like the movie.....see the movie first.
