Blue Hawaii – High Quality, 45 Rpm, Special Edition Limited Numbered



Artikelnummer: MBO192 Kategorien: ,


The old adage about Elvis Presley is that his soundtrack work never held a candle next to his studio albums. Though true for a majority of his film-related outings, the traditional notion is forever disproved by his Blue Hawaii set. Originally released in 1961 in support of the film in which he starred, the triple-platinum LP spent nearly five months at the top of the Billboard album charts; outsold his two prior studio efforts; and remains the second-best-selling soundtrack of the musical-dominant 1960s. Presley plunges into a stylistic deep end with equal parts fearlessness and fun, delving into early rock ‘n’ roll, touching balladry, playful rumbas, and relaxing islandinspired fare. The music serves as a showcase of Presley’s outgoing personality and chameleon-like ability – like that of Frank Sinatra – to inhabit different roles and entertain.

Mastered from the original master tapes, Mobile Fidelity’s 180g 45RPM 2LP set and hybrid SACD of Blue Hawaii transport listeners to both the carefree innocent escapism of the early ‘60s and calming, breezy atmospherics of the famous Pacific Islands. If you’ve ever wondered what it might be like to have Presley inhabit your room, these collectible reissues makes it happen via lifelike presence, clarity, immediacy, and transparency. The newly uncovered layers of detail, body, emotionalism, and tonality bring the singer’s treasured voice – as well as the brilliance of the arrangements and accompaniment – to light like never before. In every way, it is a sonic treatment befitting rock royalty.
