Elvis' magnificent return after his Army career. No doubt that it was one of his best albums ever!!

Really tough choice on this album. I like every single track !!

Eventually went for the best of Elvis' Blues.....Reconsider Baby !! (IMG:http://elvis-tkc.com/forum2/style_emoticons/default/notworthy.gif)

I nominate the WHOLE ALBUM.....LOL!!! As you said Chris, very tough to choose just one from this masterpiece. I'm going with "Reconsider Baby" as well though. Elvis' blusiest blues of all time, with what is probably Boots Randolph's best sax solo.

You know, the Swanky little rocker "Dirty, Dirty Feeling" deserves Honorable Mention here though.......A truly underappreciated gem!

I voted for Dirty, Dirty Feeling. This is a bouncy pop song but too short.
I like all tracks but I play Dirty, Dirty Feeling the mostest.

That's a tough one indeed! There are really no weak songs on this album and it's without a doubt one of his strongest ever. Though it may seen very obvious it's like a bridge between Elvis' 50's and 60's careers. Some of the songs could easily have been recorded in the 50's, while others indicate that Elvis had moved on to another decade and another type of material. I've always had a soft spot for the opening number, "Make Me Know It", which I first heard as the flipside to "It's Now Or Never". It's one of those songs that could have been a 50's recording and it's a killer opening for a killer LP.

GIRL NEXT DOOR WENT A WALKING...

Plus others as well...

This is the EP getting out of the army,and wanting to put tracks down that he was playing/remembering as a child,while been away for 2 years...and the A-TEAM...the group of Nashville"s best musicians...put them together = one of the best lp"s of all time.

An album which must feature in most fans Top 10 ... and just 9 votes (IMG:http://elvis-tkc.com/forum2/style_emoticons/default/swoon.gif)

Such a night and Reconsider Baby tied up with three each....shame that with so few votes we can't really get a real view of what fans like most about this LP. (IMG:http://elvis-tkc.com/forum2/style_emoticons/default/undecided.gif)

I have taken a while to get to the 60s albums because I knew it would be much harder to vote in than the 50s section..It's very hard to vote for one song from this album but I have decided to go for Girl Next Door Went A Walking It's something about the way Elvis sings it I just can't describe what I mean in words (IMG:style_emoticons/default/whistling.gif)
