This is a collection of blues songs by Elvis Presley. It was released back in 1985 with the intention to prove that Elvis was a great blues singer. Mission accomplished. Elvis tears it up on these blues songs. One thing that made this album special was the previously unreleased versions of some of the songs here. This was the first time the Sun master of "Tommorow Night" was released without the horrible overdubbing that was added in 1965. This marked the first release of the version of "One Night" with the original "dirtier" lyrics. "Ain't That Loving You Baby" is a previously unreleased alternate take played at a faster tempo. "Stranger in My Own Home Town" features an alternate mix that sounds noticeably different to my ears. And "Merry Christmas Baby" is a much longer edit than ever before, lasting over seven minutes. This is a revelatory CD which is well worth finding a copy of.

I first read about this compilation in a book called: THE ALL MUSIC GUIDE TO THE BLUES. Although, I never thought of ELVIS as a BLUES performer,It made sense to me that a white cat from Tupelo, Mississippi could be influenced by it. The late great John Lee Hooker, once dedicated a song called "Tupelo" from:" THE CREAM" album to him when he passed away, and also considered him to be a very close personal friend. So did James Brown and Little Richard. The Funky Blues Godfather: Howlin' Wolf, said that he was a good Blues singer as well. That all being said, I thought that if I were ever going to check out an ELVIS album ,it would be this one. I really dig this compilation! It has some great ELVIS Blues tracks from 1954 to 1971. It shows that not only was ELVIS a great Blues singer, but that he was also inspired by the music,style and the culture as well. That slick, greased up, pompadour hairdo with thick sideburns that he used to wear in his early days, known as a "CONK", in urban African-American culture during that time(See:Muddy Waters and Chuck Berry.),his dancing and swagger, as well as those jazzy suits that he wore, were the standard for ALL of the African-American Blues cats that came before him. The vocals, on these songs are full of style,soul,passion and rhythm. The Bands that performed on all of these recordings also give it up and are tight and on time. The sound of the music is that of a Electric Memphis Blues and Rockabilly style. My favorite tracks are: "Reconsider Baby" ,"When It Rains,It Really Pours","Ain't That Loving You Baby", "I Feel So Bad" and the best track in my opinion: "Hi-Heel Sneakers". ELVIS really gets low-down,greasy and funky on that track!Read more ›

A 12-song compilation of Elvis' most notable blues sides for the label. A good place to start digging Elvis' commitment to the music - always returning to it right up through the '70s like an old friend, whenever he needed a quick fix of the real thing - as he takes on everything from R&B slices like Tommy Tucker's "High Heel Sneakers" to Percy Mayfield's "Stranger in My Own Home Town." Major highlights on this collection are Elvis playing acoustic rhythm guitar and driving the band through a take of the Lowell Fulson title track, blistering versions of two Arthur Crudup songs, an unreleased Sun recording of Lonnie Johnson's "Tomorrow Night," and the R-rated take of Smiley Lewis's "One Night (of Sin)." - Cub Koda, All Music Guide

This compilation is additional evidence that Elvis was one of the most talented and versatile talents in the history of rock & roll. For, in addition to being able to play country, gospel, bluegrass, and rockabilly, "Reconsider Baby" shows that Elvis could more than hold his own a blues man. Here, he takes on blues-oriented music in all forms including R&B slices like Percy Mayfield's "Stranger in My Own Home Town." To this reviewer's mind, the major highlights are Elvis playing acoustic rhythm guitar and driving the band through a take of the Lowell Fulson title track, a blistering version of Arthur Crudup's "My Baby Left Me", and his classic take on Bill Emerson's "When It Rains, It Really Pours".
