The Complete Kid Galahad Session Vol. 3 RARE ELVIS PRESLEY Soundtrack LP
Priceless Songs! Treasured Memories!
Attention all Elvis fans!
This LP features songs recorded for the “Kid Galahad” soundtrack in October1961.
“Kid Galahad” was Elvis' 10th movie which was still being filmed as “Blue Hawaii” opened to packed theatres across the States. This would be Elvis' last film made before the ‘travelogue formula’ became the routine.
Even then, “Kid Galahad”, a remake of the Edward G. Robinson 1937 film, still had the feeling of a meaningful drama with six songs randomly dropped into the plot. Despite this, the lacklustre script, Elvis' worry about his increased weight and his mutual dislike of co-star Charles Bronson stopped the film from being particularly memorable.
Even with movie material Elvis was willing to try hard and 'King of The Whole Wide World' took 35 takes, over two days, before Elvis was really satisfied!
Luckily the songs were a real improvement from Elvis' last film and, although recorded at Hollywood's Radio Recorders Studios, the quality of the recordings was also excellent. While Elvis still used his Nashville A-team band, this time Tiny Timbrell took the place of the hospitalised Hank Garland and Dudley Brooks also injected some cool and jazzy piano work to the session.
