ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Sometimes one comes across people who wonder what the big fuzz was all about. What made Elvis so special? The answer is of course complex and even Elvis fans are divided, but if there is one thing they all agree on, it's the melting pot magic!

Kent Wennman and his band have listened carefully and their third CD is a fitting tribute to the King with a lot of compassion and conviction. Even a novelty number like "Bossa Nova Baby" shows that not everything was a total disaster with Elvis's movies in the sixties. "Don't cry daddy", from his critically acclaimed American Sessions in 1969, is here delivered with a new interpretation and with a great country sound which I'm sure Elvis himself would have liked. And the bonus track, a live recording of an old Percy Mayfield number, "Stranger in my own home town", clearly shows that Orange is not just another tribute band. As one critic said: Their versions are as good as Elvis's!

Arranged & Produced by Kent Wennman & Sampo Axelsson with musical help from Tomas Arnesen, Janne Lindgren, Patrik Robertsson, Andreas Hellqvist & Jan Carlsson. Watch this tribute act on Youtube:

Discovering Elvis through Orange
I,ve never been an Elvis fan. I guess I was born a little too late to appreciate the king. So Bossa Nova Baby is more Orange then Elvis for me. I can't compare, or even say that one version is better then the other. But I think with this CD it really isn't relevent. Bossa Nova Baby is brilliant in it's own right. I won't be converted into an Elvis fan, but an Orange fan.

More Elvis from orange!
This minialbum proves that Elvis didn't die when he went into the army, as John Lennon once said. The best song is Bossa Nova Baby, here as a great Hammond organ shuffle. A countryrocking Moody Blue is a reminder, that behind Elvis fat productions of his last recordings, there were som great song. The other songs on this minialbum are great too, even if I sometimes miss the vocie of Elvis.

Orange deserves an international reputation
When John Lennon tried to explain to George Martin what kind of sound he wanted he said: "I want it to sound like an orange" A Swedish band remember this and call themselves ORANGE. Kent Wennman & Sampo Axelsson has recorded the album "Take a look on the inside", in a style inspired by both english pop and American country music. The band has also recorded 2 mini-albums with songs from Elvis Presley's repertoire. ORANGE & FRIENDS PERFORM IN THE GHETTO AND OTHER SONGS ASSOCIATED WITH THE KING from july 2003 had such a reception that a now comes a second mini album. BOSSA NOVA BABY & OTHER GREAT SONGS ASSOCIATED WITH THE KING with the title track treated well on Hammondorgan in the style of Georgie Fame, I really don't want to know, Moody Blue (fine pedal steel effects), Don't cry daddy (like a future modern country classic) and Stranger in my own home town, recorded live, also with a great Hammond organ. Nice song selection, competence, and real feeling. Orange deserves an international reputation.

Personal Interpretations!
I happened to hear the song GOOD TIME CHARLIE'S GOT THE BLUES with the band ORANGE on a Mr Music country collection. A very personal interpretation indeed! So I got their 2 mini-albums from their website. Personal and good, sometimes Very Good!
(4 stars for the music 3+ for the sound)
This review is for both mini-albums.

Vrai devraient valoir à Orange une enviable réputation internationale
ORANGE PRESLEY
John Lennon, tentant d’expliquer à George Martin le son qu’il cherchait luit dit : “J’aimerais que ça sonne comme une orange”. Un groupe suédois s’en est souvenu et se fait appeler Orange. Kent Wennman & Sampo Axelsson ont enregistré “Take A Look On The Inside”, dans un style à la fois inspiré par la pop anglaise et la country américaine. Le groupe a ensuite choisi de se consacrer au répertoire d’Elvis. “Orange & Friends Perform In The Ghetto And Other Songs Associated With The King”, de juillet 2003, connut un tel impact que sort maintenant un deuxième volet, “Bossa Nova Baby” avec, outre la chanson titre, très bien traitée avec de l’orgue Hammond, un peu à la Georgie Fame, “I Really Don’t Want To Know”, “Moody Blue” (beaux effets de pedal steel), “Don’t Cry Daddy” (comme un vrai futur classique de new country, et “Stranger In My Home Town” enregistré en concert avec là aussi une belle partie à l’orgue. Bon choix de titres, compétence musicale, originalité et sentiment vrai devraient valoir à Orange une enviable réputation internationale (kattguld.com). *

5 strong experiences!
Orange & Friends are here with a new CD with interpretations of Elvis songs. And as usual it is far from soundalikes or lookalikes. 5 songs with new arrangements and it is 5 strong experiences. It's amazing to hear new things in songs that Elvis already has perfected. Swedish band Orange has done it again! They have added new dimesions without destroying. And the Elvis songs will live on......
