If someone else had voted for it, I would probably have voted for either "For Ol´times sake" or "Raised on rock".

The question is, who voted for "Girl of mine"?
To each his own but in my opinion, it´s one of Elvis worst songs of the 70:s

Lennart
Thank you Lennart!!!

Talking about "Girl of mine": I prefer all tracks (except Confidence and Who needs money) on the Clambake soundtrack !!!

Regards

Björn

This must have been one of the most convincing victorys yet. 15 votes for "For ol´times sake" was not surprising, but it was very surprisning that "Girl of mine" got any votes at all.

Next up will be "Good times".

Kind regards

Björn

Other then Girl Of Mine I have always liked these songs. I never really heard too many of the flaws people seem to hear. I like the general laid back bluesy vocals. He doesn't attack the songs. it's a different feel, kind of funky. It's got a real seventies soul feel different then other Elvis albums. The Stax sound was in eviident and welcome. This and Now are collections I always liked a lot that are generally sneered at. Oh well I enjoy them so it doesn't really matter.
