      Command Performances

      COMMAND PERFORMANCES is Vol. 2 of the 'essential 1960s masters' set, and features many of the best tracks Elvis Presley recorded for the films he made during the 1960s.

      Elvis always wanted to be a film star and of course he got his wish, but the problem was that he hated the movies he was forced to make, and he hated much of the music he was forced to record for them. Songs such as DOMINIC, which he sang to a bull, and YOGA IS AS YOGA DOES, which takes the mickey out of yoga, which he was actually quite into at the time, really depressed him, but he recorded them nonetheless.

      Thankfully those 2 songs are not included in this 2 disc set, instead songs of much higher quality such as G.I. BLUES, FLAMING STAR and WILD IN THE COUNTRY are songs which make it onto the discs. The collector in me is saddened by this as I want to own EVERYTHING that Elvis ever recorded, but another part of me is glad that it is only the quality songs that make it on as it would be a shame for a non-fan to have picked up the set and be put off by rubbish songs.

      So, to be clear, this set includes many of the best songs from Elvis' 1960s movies, and is well worth a listen.
