StereoFTD (Follow That Dream), Sony Music's Official Elvis Presley Collectors Label. Blue Hawaii is a 2 CD Special Edition 2 CD Set in the FTD Elvis Movie Soundtrack Series. The original 1961 album release of 'Blue Hawaii', had 14 songs on it. Now this expanded 2 CD version from FTD has all these plus a multitute of interesting alternate takes. Is that good or what? And most of the extra tracks have never been released before. This is something that is quintessential to every Elvis fan. 'Blue Hawaii' features the title song, 'No More', 'Can't Help Falling In Love', 'Rock-a-Hula-Baby', 'Moonlight Swim', 'Hawaiian Wedding Song' and more. 'Steppin' out of Line', the original, was one bonus track that was already released. It was released one year after the original 'Blue Hawaii' album came out on 'Pot Luck'. By the way, be sure to get that one as well. This is an outstanding job RCA did on this! 'Dreams come true in blue Hawaii, and mine could all come true, this magic night of nights with you'. Elvis rocks all the way!

Blue Hawaii is certainly one of Elvis' best soundtrack albums from the 60's and was his biggest hit album. It stayed at number 1 on the US album charts for a then record 20 weeks! This was Elvis' commercial peak! This is a wonderful reproduction of this recording. The sound is sharper and crisper than ever before. This is the only CD that I can say that the bonus tracks were just a much worth having and listening to as the original album tracks. If you like the 'Blue Hawaii' soundtrack then this is a dream come true.

Blue Hawaii is rightfully placed at the top of the Elvis Presley movie list. Both the soundtrack and film are truly essential Elvis. They both represent the Elvis that we would like to remember. Another fabulous soundtrack release from FTD, The alternate 'album' of First Takes works extremely well and the packaging is very stylish. The newly remixed audio quality is astounding - especially on the outtakes. With this release FTD corrects the error with the 1997 issued CD where they incorrectly reversed the stereo channels.
