Description

    Legacy Recordings is proud to announce the release of 'If I Can Dream: Elvis Presley With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra!'

    The remarkable new album features classic Elvis vocal performances with brand-new orchestral accompaniment, along with a duet with Michael Bublé, and appearances by Il Volo and Duane Eddy.

    An exciting revisit of Elvis' work, 'If I Can Dream' focuses on the iconic artist's unmistakable voice, emphasizing the pure power of The King of Rock and Roll. Recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London with acclaimed producers Don Reedman and Nick Patrick, the 14-track album features Elvis' most dramatic original performances augmented with lush new arrangements by The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

    "This would be a dream come true for Elvis," Priscilla Presley says of the project. "He would have loved to play with such a prestigious symphony orchestra. The music... the force that you feel with his voice and the orchestra is exactly what he would have done." Don Reedman also commented, "Abbey Road Studios and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra are as good as it gets and Elvis deserves as good as it gets."

    The album features a scintillating duet with best-selling jazz-pop singer Michael Bublé on "Fever." The album also includes additional contributions by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame guitarist Duane Eddy adding his signature sound to "An American Trilogy" and "Bridge Over Troubled Water," and Italian operatic pop trio Il Volo lending their outstanding vocals to "It's Now or Never."

    As arranger Nick Patrick said, "This is the record he would have loved to make."

    'If I Can Dream' also highlights Elvis Presley's diverse musical tastes and appreciation for great vocalists spanning a variety of genres from standards to opera

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Elvis with Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. It works It was a good idea that really works. I would not have made some of their selections. However, it covers different songs from various parts of Elvis' career. So something to please everyone. After a few listens songs that wouldn't have been my picks got better with each listening.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mood music Encapsulated is the embodiment of Elvis Presley that i know of from the early era's of the 50's 70's generation, in an orchestral version of his music especially suited for Christmas time for me, i will tend to from time to time listen to it on other occasions because it sounds so great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Great way of mixing old songs I bought this over a month ago. I am surprised as to how modern technology made seem as if it was done in a studio recently. It seemed that Elvis was still alive and acctually in the studio with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
