    ASIDE FROM "MOODY BLUE", THE LAST ALBUM RELEASED DURING ELVIS PRESLEY'S CAREER AND LIFETIME, ALSO HAVING BEEN MOSTLY RECORDED IN 1976 AT "GRACELAND" IN THE DEN NAMED "JUNGLE ROOM", "FROM ELVIS PRESLEY BOULEVARD"-THE NAME DEDICATED IN 1971-IS A VALUABLE PIECE OF THIS UNIQUELY TALENTED ARTIST'S LAST CHAPTER. IN SPITE OF OBVIOUS HEALTH ISSUES, HE STRUGGLES THRU THIS TROUBLED TIME IN HIS LIFE, TO PRODUCE SOME OF THE MOST VOCALLY POWERFUL & EMOTIONALLY POIGNANT RECORDINGS OF HIS ENTIRE CAREER. SOME DO AND SOME DON'T LIKE HIS VERSION OF NEIL SEDAKA'S "SOLITAIRE", THOUGH I THINK ANY CRITICISM IS UNWARRANTED AS HE GAVE THIS SONG THE MOST APPROPRIATE EMOTIONAL TOUCHES OF ANY OTHER ARTIST I'VE EVER HEARD. PLUS, THERE'S ALSO THE SOMEWHAT ROCKABILLY TYPE OF TREATMENT GIVEN TO "FOR THE HEART", A FINE SONG WHICH A FEW YEARS AFTER HAD BEEN RERECORDED TO LITERALLY PUT "THE JUDDS" ON THE MAP OF FAME. IN MY PERSONAL OPINION, AS WELL AS THAT OF OTHERS I'VE HEARD AND READ, INCLUDING THAT OF HIS PERSONAL PRODUCER, FELTON JARVIS, THE SONGS WHICH MOST CLEARLY DEFINE ELVIS' FEELINGS AND IMPRESSIVE VOCAL CAPACITY AT THIS PARTICULAR TIME ARE 'DANNY BOY", "NEVER AGAIN', AND ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFULLY SINCERE AND THOROUGHLY ENRAPTURING PERFORMANCES #HE SINGS WITH NEARLY OPERATIC VOCAL RANGE & CRYINGLY SPEAKS ON THIS ONE# IS HIS VERSION OF "HURT". I'VE RECEIVED INQUIRIES FROM NUMEROUS FOLKS, INLUDING MUSIC SALESPERSONS, WHO WANTED MORE KNOWLEDGE ON THIS SONG'S "ALMOST CULT-LIKE FOLLOWING". INTERESTINGLY, I HAVE BROUGHT ELVIS' RECORDING OF "HURT" INTO SPECIALTY AUDIO STORES TO TEST THE SOUND OF THEIR PRICEY SPEAKERS, AND TWO OR THREE SALESPEOPLE AND ONE MANAGER DID, AT DIFFERENT STORES, IN FACT, OFFER EXTRA DEALS IF I MERELY HAD AGREED TO TRANSFER "HURT" ON TO A TAPE OR A CD FOR THEM TO BOTH PERSONALLY ENJOY AND TO PLAY FOR CUSTOMERS AS AN ATTRACTION TO THEIR AUDIO EQUIPMENT . BY THE WAY, I DIDN'T COMPLY AND ADVISED THAT THEY PURCHASE THEIR OWN, LEGITIMATELY. SO, OF COURSE, I DIDN'T RECEIVE THE ALLEGED EXTRA SPECIAL PRICING. IT'S, IN MY PERSPECTIVE ANYHOW, QUITE UNFORTUNATE HOW JUDGEMENTAL AND NAIVELY BIASED TOO MANY PEOPLE TEND TO BE ON THE MATERIAL OF ELVIS PRESLEY, SINCE HIS VOCAL AND OVERALL PERFORMING ABILITY CONSIDERABLY CHANGED AND GREATLY IMPROVED OVER THE YEARS SPANNING HIS CAREER. WITH THE UNIQUELY TALENTED ELVIS A. PRESLEY, IF YOU JUST OPEN YOUR MIND, YOU WILL LEARN THAT HE WAS LIKE MANY ENTERTAINERS IN ONE, AND THERE'S POSITIVELY SOMETHING FOR ALMOST EVERYONE TO FIND ENJOYABLE. I HAVE NEVER PAID CLOSE TO SUCH A LOW, AFFORDABLE PRICE AS IS OFFERED FOR THIS AND MANY OTHER TITLES AT " BEST BUY". YOU'VE NOTHING TO LOSE, BUT LOTS TO GAIN. JUST LISTEN TO ELVIS PERFORM "HURT" AND YOU MAY BE BEYOND SURPRISED. IN FACT, CHANCES ARE YOU'LL WANT TO LISTEN OVER & OVER AGAIN. ELVIS...NEVER TO BE FORGOTTEN!!!
