I was sceptical about this CD before hearing it, but I took the chance and would say is an excellent album. The mixes give the tracks a modern feel, but aren't too gimmicky. There is a 2cd version too, but that just adds the original Elvis versions which any fan would have 5 times over on other compilations.
'Viva Elvis' is the soundtrack to the show of the same name, a Cirque Du Soleil production featuring the music of Elvis Presley. Elvis's classic hits have been reworked and given new arrangements and musical backings, in a similar style to The Beatles' 'Love' album, which was also taken from a Cirque Du Soleil show. The album features snippets of comments about Elvis by various famous figures, including Ed Sullivan and Bill Black.
