Reviews

 

"Elvis has hardly ever been as beautiful interpreted as by Lisa Dillan/it's all about Elvis, and it's all about soft jazz. So tender, touching and beautiful that the crush is about to take a stranglehold ."

Harstad Tidene

 

"This is so great, so beautiful, so strong, so personal and so unique that one only can give in, and move into Lisa Dillans Elvis-world/ The versions of "You Don't Have to Say You Love Me" and "You'll Never Walk Alone" is nothing less than amazing – they move in and stays in the heart forever."
