Thanks to Edward O'Connell for the copy that reached me today. I look forward to hearing it.

I'm really enjoying this album. A really tight band , with a muscular full on sound. Highlights are songs from somewhat later in Elvis's career, all the more unique for being so rarely covered. Brian Simm's vocal on Pony Street is brilliant, redefining the song, sounding eerily like peak period Billy Joel. Ditto Tommy Lepson's go at Spooky Girlfriend, giving the song a brashness that the original lacks. The opening of his version of Alison is interesting, incorporating the choral motif from the opening of The Miracle's Tracks Of My Tears, a perhaps knowing nod to the original's reference to another Soul classic, the Spinner's Ghetto Child. Edward O'Connell 's take on New Lace Sleeves is a joy to behold , adding a air of bravado to the calculated air of the original. All in all a hugely enjoyable romp through Elvis's work.
