Great session, great songs and a great album by our man.

I know Pot Luck is considered lesser than the previous Nashville albums, and maybe it is. But I like the latin flavour which gives the album character and consistency, while many other Elvis albums were more like a collection of songs.

I love these complete boxes. A big winner for me!

I’ve been looking forward to the next session release after missing out on His Hand in Mine and this is fabulous news. Excellent looking cover too. So excited!

Yes the voice was magnificent on these sessions, and the Latin flavour was a big bonus as it was always a weakness of mine . The only thing that has always bugged me was why Suspicion did not get issued as a single back in 1962, it would have been a monster hit IMHO.

I wonder why "Stepping Out Of Line" has been omitted in the ALBUM MASTERS.
I am Buffalo-Horn! wrote on October 10, 2021
Good point! "Stepping Out of Line" should come after "Easy Question". So why is it omitted?
wildfishie wrote on October 10, 2021
Most likely, "Steppin' Out Of Line" will be put in the "Blue Hawaii Sessions" if it ever gets released.

I know it's hard to miss with a face like that - but what a cover!
PageBoy wrote on October 11, 2021
Elvis was in great voice at the 'Pot Luck' sessions. But he flexed it on way too many middling or subpar songs because a solid investment in good songwriters was seen as a threat while lucrative movie commitments were given priority. They got it the wrong way around. The expanded BMG CD is quite sufficient.

Apparently a huge fire has destroyed the FTD warehouse.
