Review: Frankie And Johnny Soundtrack CD : Sony Special Products 2010

Home - Elvis Presley Photos Home - Elvis Presley Reviews

Frankie And Johnny single CD. The sound quality is superb on this, and all the Sony Special Products Soundtrack releases. If you like the Frankie And Johnny soundtrack then you will not be disappointed.

Elvis Presley's 20th movie was another themed musical, this time taking on the flavour of the Mississippi showboat era. The New Orleans jazz flavour, that had worked so well in 'King Creole', unfortunately, didn't improve some very average 1965 songs. Elvis also ended up overdubbing the vocal to several of the tracks. According to Memphis Mafia's Alan Fortas, this was because Elvis threw a tantrum on the first night of the sessions. Well if you'd seen 'Petunia, The Gardener's Daughter' as a suggested track wouldn't you have done the same?! Again Elvis was still far more interested in exploring his spiritual side and spent hours discussing the 'Self-Realization Fellowship' with co-Star Donna Douglas who also happened to be a member.

'Frankie And Johnny', with the beautiful 'Please Don't Stop Loving Me' as the flipside, was released as the single in March 1966 making #25 in the charts. The LP made #20, the lowest since he returned from the army.
