  • 1. ElvisNews.com Go to mainmenu / search box. Home > Shop > CDs Elvis Sings Hits From His Movies Released: 2008/11/17 by Sony Special Products Rating: Re-issue of the 1972 Camden budget release. The ElvisNews Review Sony re-issued two more Camden volumes on their Special Budget label; “I Got Lucky” and “Elvis Sings Hits From His Movies”. Did I get lucky tracking down a copy? Design The artwork is faithfully reproduced; the only thing missing on these re-issues is the original back cover artwork featuring advertisements for other Presley albums. The originals didn’t have the big FBI anti-piracy stamp either :-) Content The content of these discs is kind of a mixed bag but for many fans these releases bring back memories of that magical period of discovering Elvis through these cheap releases. You can say they were crap back then and are crap now, but they served a purpose. They put the cheap re-issues we have in Europe in another perspective; what if these Camden releases had contained Elvis’ classic fifties material to discover his music? No compilation ever should contain “Old MacDonald” but the addition of “Guitar Man”. “Big Boss Man” to the “Elvis Sings Hits From his Movies” disc was worth the handful of dollars back in those days for a lot of fans. The same goes for the coupling of the red hot chart hit single "Burning Love” with “Guadalhara” and “I Love Only One Girl”. I always had a soft spot for "Confidence" as it was part of the first Elvis tape I got and don't we all - well at least the men - like "Long Legged Girls "(With Short Dresses On)? These two aren’t the best Camden titles; but for the real collector it contains two little collectables according to postings on the FECC forum. “I Got Lucky” contains the original edits of the title track while “Home Is Where The Heart Is” is released in stereo for the first time on CD. Conclusion The Camden LPs are what they are - take them or leave them; in their day they served a purpose. Many fans still have a soft spot for these albums and they are part of the original catalogue, released during Elvis’ life-time. Collecting those I call myself "lucky" I got them :-) Tracklisting Original tracklisting "I Got Lucky": 1. I Got Lucky 2. What A Wonderful Life 3. I Need Somebody To Lean On 4. Yoga As Yoga Does 5. Riding The Rainbow 6. Fools Fall In Love 7. The Love Machine 8. Home Is Where The Heart Is 9. You Gotta Stop 10. If You Think I Don't Need You

Old MacDonald Reactions Greg Nolan (profile/ contact) wrote on Dec 23, 2008 As with last time Camdens were reissued ( in 2006) these reissues are taking awhile to get to stores. They are available via Amazon, however. I expect they will be in stores in a few months if past is any guide. hounddawgs6499 (profile/ contact) wrote on Dec 3, 2008 I'm looking forward to buying this CD - and the "I Got Lucky" CD. A question to ask: Have both of these CDs been released yet?? I've been looking around, and none of the stores here have the the two CDs. JerryNodak (profile/ contact) wrote on Nov 26, 2008 Whilst I agree that the overall tracklist is weak (mostly because of the two "Clambake" tracks) I still enjoy the album overall. This title is definitely foe die-hard, nostalgic collectors like Greg,myself and others. Greg Nolan (profile/ contact) wrote on Nov 12, 2008 Lame song line-up --one of the worst Camdens (and there are some good ones!) but at least the the cover has aged well in a '70s kind of way. I'm glad RCA/Sony has been reissuing these titles in limited (and budget) fashion. For die-hard nostalgic collectors only.
