|1. Mamas little baby hates Clambake!
(Review by Oven Egeland)
The Clambake soundtrack is among Elvis' poorest, unfortunately in sharp competion with several other movie soundtracks. It is also evident that Elvis himself was boored with this song material he had to work with here!
Although there are some keepers here, 'You Don't Know Me' and 'The Girl I Never Loved' among them, songs such as 'Hey, Hey, Hey', 'Who Needs Money', 'How Can You Loose What You Never Had' and 'Clambake' itself is almost unbearable. And I have still not mentioned 'Confidence'!
Even a nicely wrapped production can not hide this fact. The outtakes are mostly poorer versions than the master takes. Not surprisingly. Although I like every outtake of 'You Don't Know Me' and 'The Girl I Never Loved'.
The rest i crap, nothing more nothing less!
