Notes:

Import release of the most disappointing of the three Elvis in Hawaii movies.  Although the film is exceptionally beautiful to look at (it was shot almost entirely at the now defunct Coco Palms resort), the plot stinks and acting sucks and its easy to fall asleep during this film even after 3 venti espressos. The soundtrack songs feel a little more classic Hawaiian that Blue Hawaii.  This release is an import complete with miniature gatefold packaging that mimics the original LP.  Artwork contains both poster versions and is wonderful to look at.  Very pricey now though.  Also available as a 10-song download but without the extra tracks of this fine collection.
