Elvis Presley: Paradise Hawaiian StyleNME Readers Reply

uncredited writer, New Musical Express, 15 July 1966

I've read all the reviews in the national Press as well as the pop magazines, and they virtually all criticise it as being a poor effort. Fifty million critics can't be wrong! Why don't Presley fans be honest and admit he's in a rut?
