Erm, Steve, this forum is headed "off-topic". This topic has gone "off-topic". Not a problem on this forum.

But of course I was planning on listing the opinions in the Ringo forum. But here as well, seeing as how I mentioned it here first! Plus, I need to get the post count up again . . . [;)]

Does anybody here own the album 'From Elvis in Memphis'? Man, I kid you not, it is awesome! I just got it last week. Came out in early '69, right off the heels of his tremendous '68 Comeback Special. I bought it from Amazon.com, where the album got a perfect 5-star rating by the reviewers. They weren't kidding. I love this album so much already, that I actually wrote a review myself on Amazon. It hasn't been posted yet, because they have to review it first. But it will be in a couple days. But anyway, here's a copy of my review, just to give you an idea about this album.

By the way, if you visit Amazon, the short samples of the album don't do it justice....
_____________________________________________________________________
If Elvis Presley Ever Had a Masterpiece Album, THIS is it.....

First of all, let me say a big Thank You to the previous reviewers. It was YOUR reviews that overwhemingly swayed me to purchase this fine album. As the title of my post states, if Elvis ever had a masterpiece, this album is it. AWESOME. I got this album just last week, and already I am in love with it. This is quintessential late 60's Elvis. For those of you who think Elvis Presley was just 'Heartbreak Hotel' and 'Hound Dog', you have NO IDEA what you're missing. I think this was the album that showed Elvis's music was changing with the times. This album shows his maturity. From the opening of Wearin' That Loved On Look and Only The Strong Survive, the listener is hooked. Then the awesome bluesy feel of I'll Hold You in My Heart makes you feel you're in an underground, smokey blues club, with the man himself leading the festivities. There is NOT ONE bad song on this fine album. Any Day Now is MAGNIFICENT. This has quickly become one of my favorite songs (not just Elvis songs) of all time. The original album closes with In The Ghetto, my favorite Elvis Presley song of all time. It's also probably Elvis's darkest and most socially conscious song. A GREAT ending to the original record.
The Bonus Tracks are, you guessed it, outstanding. The hits Suspicious Minds and Kentucky Rain are songs I don't think I'll EVER get tired of hearing. Don't Cry Daddy is absolutely superb. And Mama Liked the Roses is a very mellow and fitting end to the album.
Besides Elvis's outstanding vocal delivery, his band, (like all of his musicians during late 60's and 70's era), is HOT! For people who think Elvis lost something after his Army years, THIS is the album that redeemed him. By the way, did I mention that I'm only 24 years old? That just goes to show the awesome power of Elvis and his music....to cross multiple generations. Although I'm a big Elvis Presley fan, I'm far from the BIGGEST. But this album makes me look at him in a totally different way. So, for all of you out there that think Elvis was a marginal artist at best (especially you people out there around my age), I almost guarantee this album will change your view about Elvis Presley. Bottom line, buy this album. You will NOT be dissapointed.

Well, I don't have that album, and I am not likely to be getting hold of it in the near future. There's about one or two CDs I plan on getting, but not very many. Something of Led Zep, and perhaps a few Styx albums online . . . and that's it.
