Such a tough choice. This Soundtrack has to be one of his very best. Strong from start to finish. Was Elvis great in the role of Danny Fisher ? I should say. Elvis played the role as if it was made for him.

Favourite track ? I went for "Trouble", but there are so many others that it could have been (IMG:http://elvis-tkc.com/forum2/style_emoticons/default/undecided.gif)

I voted for Young Dreams.
A track you never get tired of.
My No 1 film track of the 50's for me.
I love this film and soundtrack but Young Dreams gets my vote.

His best overall soundtrack? Very possibly......."Trouble" has become a very highly regarded "Elvis Classic" over the years, with Elvis even reaching back to it himself in '68 as the opening song to his NBC TV Special. It's a quintessential track and no matter how great subsequent performances may have been, none equal the treatment given to the original Master Take featured on this GREAT LP!

I went for Trouble as well..though Crawfish and New Orleans are also favourites..
Definetly one of the strongest soundtracks of his movie career..
And also the best opening sequence of any Elvis film...the song and Elvis (even though hes just putting on his shirt and combing his hair)..he makes it look soo cool..fantastic opener!!

Once again there are so many I could have voted for, but my vote goes to Elvis' delivery of "Young Dreams". Beautiful vocal work! (IMG:http://elvis-tkc.com/forum2/style_emoticons/default/kicking.gif)

joined you - his best film ever (documentaries excepted). other choices would have been 'new orleans', 'king creole' and 'hard headed woman'.

hugs, ellie

..... plus found that cover - which i just LOVE - in a really nice size

New Orleans for me just to be different. Just think its very bluesy. Dixieland rock would have gotten my second vote if we were allowed two LOL

The poorest track is Steadfast loyal and true; I understand it's written for a certain scene in the movie. It's a pity that they have not chosen at the time for track M take 6 (later on released on Essential Elvis vol. 3).
