Roustabout - FTD

Roustabout - FTD

We’ve had original soundtrack recordings by Elvis in the past and we needn’t dwell on their great success, but the new “ROUSTABOUT” album is undoubtedly on of the finest we’ve had!  “It’s A Wonderful World” and “Big Love Big Heartache” are delivered smoothly to a smooth Latin-flavored accompaniment. Moist of the tunes however, are the hard-rocker variety, especially “Hard Knocks and “There’s A Brand New Day On The Horizon.” For a special gas, check out the lyrics on “Little Egypt” and “Poison Ivy League.”  We’ve got great music, a great cover, the movie tie-in, advertising and promotion support.  

53 years later, FTD is pleased to announce the long awaited “Classic Album” version of “ROUSTABOUT”. Reaching #1 on Billboard in February 1965, it would Elvis’ last chart topping album until “ALOHA FROM ELVIS VIA SATELLITE” in 1973. Packaged in 7” format with a full color 16-page memorabilia booklet, it contains previously unreleased material and the recently discovered “I’m A Roustabout” track.
