1. Short comments by Ken Jensen

The third outing from the FTD label brings us home recorded songs, captured on tape in Germany in 1959 and in Elvis's home in Malibu in 1960 and 1966.

This material was recorded on amateur equipment, so the sound quality isn't the best, but it's still pretty decent for this type of recording. The CD offers a rare musical insight into a superstar sitting at home jamming with friends.

The CD is a pleasure to listen to, and there are many highlights here, such as 'Danny Boy', 'I'm Beginning to Forget You', 'Sweet Leilani', the dark and disturbing 'Moonlight Sonata', 'It's a Sin to Tell a Lie', and 'What Now, My Love'.

No serious Elvis fan should go without this CD; it contains many rare songs not available elsewhere. The tracklist speaks for itself.
