Let Me Entertain You
A rather mellow American CD compilation from 1996. 21 of Ann-Margret’s early “sexy” hits.
A fantastic 5-CD boxed set from German re-issue label Bear Family. This has it all, really. Everything she recorded with RCA including some never before realeased tracks. Also included are some songs from various soundtracks. It comes with a 72 page deluxe 4-colour book the size of an LP. It has full session details and lots of great pictures. A must!
Viva Rock Vegas
As Fred Flintstone might say, “Let’s Rock!” The Flintstones in “Viva Rock Vegas” is an over-the-cop family comedy but its soundtrack is a rock ‘n’ roll archeologist’s Olduvai Gorge. From the blues of B.B. King to the scorching rockabilly of Johnny Burnette & his Rock ‘n’ Roll Trio, from Bill Haley and his Comets and Jimmy Cavello and his House Rockers to long-forgotten honky-tonker Moon Mullican, The Flinstones In Viva Rock Vegas (Hip-O Records) released April 25, 2000, is a rock ‘n’ roll mammoth.
But the Viva Rock Vegas is hardly dinosaur rock. Also featured are ’90 artists such as rockin’ eccentric Rev. Horton Heat, country rocker Robbie Fulks and blues belter Susan Tedeschi. Add ’80’s roots rockers Nick Lowe and Donnie Iris and Viva Rock Vegaa qualifies as a lesson in musical geology.
Also included are selections performed by score composer David Newman (1998 Academy Award nominee for Anastasia) and one of the film’s stars, Alan Cumming (Tony Award winner for Cabaret).
Yet, the highlight may be Ann-Margret’s “Viva Las Vegas (Viva Rock Vegas).” Originally sung by Elvis Presley for the 1964 film “Viva Las Vegas,” the song has been reworked for this film for Ann-Margret, the voice and inspiration for the character of Ann-Margrock in the original “Flintstones” animated TV series of the ’60’s. The track also spotlights a special performance by James Burton, Elvis’ greatest guitar player.
ANN MARGRET FILMOGRAPHY
Ann-Margret has dazzled screen and stage audiences as few entertainers in our time. With her film debut in Frank Capra’s final classic, “Pocketful of Miracles,” in 1962, to the soon to be released Oliver Stone directed “On Any Sunday” with Al Pacino, Ann-Margret’s film career has spanned four decades. Displaying a versatility that few actresses can match has earned her love and admiration, not just for her beauty and her legend, but for herself. Come behind the scenes for glimpses into over 50 films, including “Viva Las Vegas” with Elvis Presley, her Academy Award Nominated roles in “Tommy” and “Carnal Knowledge,” and many memorable moments.
