It's decisions like this that make people not take your polls serious.

Per
Just how seriously are people taking these polls - or any forum polls for that matter? I mean, how seriously can they be taken? Aren't they just a bit of fun?
Spot on, Matthew! But the real explaination is, that Elvis 70´s take on "A big hunk o´ love", really was re-arranged and one of the few 50´s songs he tackled seriously. "An American trilogy" was brilliant performed here, but doesn´t really differs that much from the other recorded versions from 1972. However, I will do a few poll later with missed masters like "Burning love", "It´s only love" and so on. It´s possible that I will include the single version of trilogy here.

End of the discussion!

PS: Elvisa, Matthew & poormadpeter: Thank you all for your support! This makes me in the mood fo doing the next poll soon. I´m so glad that "Raised on rock", just has 10 tracks.... :wink:

his zenith.

excellent album...but better visually.
as much as his live garden album must be heard...this historic performance must be seen.

steamroller.

but the emotion conveyed in his performance of i'm so lonesome i could cry is a historic performance within a historic performance.
