    This CD is amazing! I am a lifelong Elvis fan. Steamroller Blues and Burning Love are not two of my all-time favorite songs; BUT this recording with the RPO actually helps me enjoy them. The duet with Michael Buble is a little weird but I love the rest of the CD and am wearing it out rapidly. I gave a copy to a friend of mine who also loves it and I will probably give more copies to others I know will appreciate it. I was also given the recording in vinyl as a gift for Christmas which makes the experience even better. In my opinion, this is a must-have for all Elvis fans!

    The CD was great, Although I think Elvis could have had more of his famous vocal backing. He was after all a genius, not only at singing, but selecting the right instrumentation and could arrange vocal backing like no other vocalist has ever done before nor since. Unfortunately the CD took a long time to arrive. It was already well in the shops before it arrived.

    I would give it a higher than 5 star rating if it were offered. The vocals, of course, are wonderful. It is very interesting to hear him singing from the master tapes. The clarity of Elvis' voice is so much better. The NY Philharmonic has always been my favorite orchestra since hearing them live in NY City. To have these two sounds together is literally a dream come true. Elvis, with the best vocal performance, and the Philharmonic, with the best sound......I have listened to the CD several times every day since it arrived, and am still hearing different sounds each time. There is a fullness to the whole CD that is captivating. I am very happy that I pre-ordered this CD and have it in my hot little hands so soon! Thank you to the Presley Estate for making this music combination available to us.

    The production is fantastic and in my fabulous sound system in my car it is awesome. Not sure about some of the song choices - that is another matter of course. Fever arrangement was particularly good. The RHO worked very hard on Burning love. I bet You don't know me with the Royal Philharmonic would be beautiful. Elvis was a wonderful ballad singer so I would love to see an album of good ballads ( there are many from his movies) done with the RPO.

    Love the album. Only fitting that it would be the #1 album today. Who other than Elvis can do that? It's been in my CD player since I received it and might be a long time before it gets replaced. I bought two so I can send a copy to a die hard Elvis fan family member, she might not get it just in case i wear out the one I have, there is backup.

    This is an AWESOME CD. As great as the songs are, having the Orchestra behind him made them sound richer and very elegant. Everyone involved did a SUPERB job on showing the world how great a singer Elvis was and still is. I enjoyed every minute of this CD and am telling everyone about it. Elvis would have been so honored and proud, what a wonderful way to show respect to the greatest singer of all times. I highly approve!

    Elvis would be so proud. The melodies that have become so familiar to us are now breathtaking. The orchestra adds so much to Elvis' voice. Thank you to all who was involved in the making of something memorable. The one song that I would have loved to heard arranged was 'You'll Never Walk Alone'. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for this beautiful CD.

    I've heard several people say this is an album that Elvis would have wanted to record. It opens with an ELO twinged Burning Love that works marvelously!!! Other highlights include Love Me Tender, Fever (duet with Michael Buble) which is very tastefully done...and the title track If I Can Dream hits all the right spots for me. Where this project falls a little are songs that already had an orchestra behind them like You've Lost That Loving Feeling, Steamroller Blues and An American Trilogy. Great songs but especially on An American Trilogy, you can't beat the powerful live performance with the Joe Guercio Orchestra. I would have preferred some other raw songs to back with an orchestra. How about, I Really Don't Want To Know or Follow That Dream, maybe even Return To Sender or Moody Blue. All of that said...I love this record!
