Sure, most of Presley's films were fluffy stuff. No matter -- the songs were written by men at the peak of their craft and performed by musicians who were masters of their instruments. The reissues are remixed from the three-track studio masters and sound gorgeous. Kid Galahad sees its six songs released unedited and in stereo for the first time, while Girls! Girls! Girls! has all the songs Presley recorded for the film, some released for the first time here. The only real misstep (aside from the existence of "The Song of the Shrimp") is some sloppy proofreading in the booklets.
