After listening to this last Bilko issue, I took the liberty to this listen again to the double feature CD's. Without exemption I really enjoyed every minute of this Bilko CD. From the first sounds of
Girl Happy, on this CD at the right speed (cause RCA thought it was necessary to speed it up in 1965, just because that was common then.), to the crisp guitar opening of Take Me To The Fair and the
lovely ballads like They Remind Me Too Much Of You.
What makes this Bilko CD now better than the original BMG issues? For one thing it's the way Bilko mixed these songs all together. Second, of course, the unreleased versions. Then all this, combined
with Elvis' good sense of humor and an excellent sound quality.
As never before Bilko did it again by delivering the best soundtrack bootleg ever! They made the very best of slightly 'uninteresting' material. No complete session (I'm sorry, all you 'real'
but just one bunch of fun al together in a wonderful sleeve. Okay, the producers made one tiny mistake by announcing take 6 from 'How Would You Like To Be' as take 1. Well, you shall be forgiven. The
only disadvantage we find here on that same backside: Coming Soon! There's Always Me, Volume 5. Well, that's too bad my friends, it ain't gonna happen! How do you mean, quit on your peak?
