Review : Burbank '68 CD

Burbank '68 is composed of 2 main parts: rehearsals recorded in Elvis' dressing room at NBC (June 25), and the majority of the 8 p.m stand up show (June 29). The first half starts off with a 5 minute 'intro', which are the 2 instrumentals of Danny Boy and 'Baby What You Want Me To Do' (aka Walkin' The Dog). Then Elvis launches into the songs that were all later done in the 2 sit down shows except for 'Blue Moon Of Kentucky'. (Burbank '68  is FTD release #1 and also is now deleted, we have 4 copies left).

Elvis: The Essential Undubbed Masters 1969-1976 8 x CD Box Set

Elvis: The Essential Undubbed Masters 1969-1976 is a brand new deluxe 8 cd set and it is out now. Recording sessions can be time-consuming. The process of recording a song or album is often very interesting. It's like playing live in the studio, with the difference that if one goofed, they had to do it all over. Small corrections could be made but especially erasing something from the tape was a problem. Later on with the introduction of multitrack recording equipment it became much easier to alter the recordings. Channels could be erased or added and levels could be adjusted for each separate channel. Often a track that ends up on an LP or 45 contains overdubs that were made at a later stage and added to the master take. Also most of The Elvis masters contain such overdubs. This set contains the master takes as they were made in the studio, without those overdubs. It's as close as it gets to the pure sound of Elvis.

Elvis: Something For Everybody (Alternate Album) CD

Elvis: Something For Everybody (Alternate Album) CD. Elvis' thirteenth album released in June 1961. This great alternate album contains rare and hard to find outtakes (some not released by Elvis' official record company) of tracks recorded by Elvis between November 8, 1960 and March 12, 1961 in RCA's Studio B in Nashville, Tennesee. An excellent album with cover art done in 'early sixties' style with the best outtakes available. This is the album that could have been!

Review : Elvis At American Sound Studio 2-CD Set

FTD's 'Elvis At American Sound Studio' 2-CD opens a door to the remarkable 1969 Memphis recording sessions. As a stand-alone release it includes the remaining songs not originally available on the landmark FTD albums', Back In Memphis' & 'From Elvis In Memphis' plus an additional thirty unreleased nuggets. Akin to admiring two beautiful paintings, and discovering a third, a clever compile results in a pleasing listen which augments the stellar Memphis 1969 recording sessions trilogy with aplomb.

Review : Memphis Recording Service: The Complete Works 1935-1955 CD Set

Memphis Recording Service is known for putting a lot of work into its high-quality releases and Memphis Recording Service: The Complete Works 1953-1955 is no exception. The label kept their promise that the overall sound quality of these recordings would be improved thanks to new remastering. Memphis Recording Service painstakingly remastered and restored the classic Sun recordings 'using the most sophisticated technology available' according to the liner notes of the release, and you can certainly hear that on the majority of the master takes on disc one. ... All in all, Memphis Recording Service: The Complete Works 1935-1955 is an excellent release that will not only be of interest to those who missed out on A Boy from Tupelo: The Complete 1953-55 Recordings but to anyone who wants to have all of Elvis' Sun recordings collected in one place and in the best sound quality possible right now.

Review : I Sing All Kinds The Nashville 1971 Sessions FTD CD

Sometimes living a long life has its rewards. Living to see this superb FTD album, 'I Sing All Kinds', is surely one of them. Shorn of the intrusive post production dubs, orchestration and background harmonies of the original releases, and given some inspired sound mixing, the songs on this FTD release are a joy to listen to. The improvement in sound and feel of the original releases is remarkable ...

Pat Boone Remembers Elvis Presley

Pat Boone: I first met Elvis in Cleveland, Ohio. He was not very, he was not known really nationally at all. It was before Heartbreak Hotel, before Hound Dog, he had two or three country records, sort of 'rockabilly' we called them. And I'd seen his name on some jukeboxes in Texas, and made note of the name. But he couldn't be a pop artist, not in those days.

Released : 'Spirit Of Jackson MS' 2-CD Set from FTD

The 'Spirit Of Jackson, MS' CD is now released and our order is on the way to us. On May 5th 1975, Elvis performed a concert in aid of the McComb tornado victims at the State Fair Coliseum, Jackson, Mississippi. Elvis raised $108, 860 to help residents who were affected by the devastation. The audio for this show is damaged beyond repair. However, 'Spirit Of Jackson, MS' includes two other shows from the State Fair Coliseum. Just over a month after the charity show, Elvis performed in Jackson again and this show is featured on Disc 2. Disc 1 stays at the same venue for a concert given in September 1976.

John Lennon and ... a box full of Elvis Presley singles

Up on the 17th floor of the St Regis Hotel in New York City, John Lennon is learning to type. 'It's great', he says, 'Yoko's teaching me'. John is in his bedroom, surrounded by the detritus of creation: guitars, books, notepads, nylon-tipped pens, and... a box full of Elvis Presley singles. 'I asked someone to get all his old singles for me', he says, now down on his hands and knees, opening the box and spilling the bright red RCA labels over the floor. The next 10 minutes are spent sorting them out. My Baby Left MeHound DogOne Night and the old Sun classics are in one pile, while crap (John's opinion) like Bossa Nova Baby and Are You Lonesome Tonight? go on another.

Welcome Home Elvis soundtrack found

56 years after its initial broadcast, and 41 years after ABC is said to have discarded the original master videotape, a high-quality source of the soundtrack for the Frank Sinatra-hosted 1960 Timex special has finally been located. The special, officially titled 'It's Nice to Go Traveling', was Sinatra's last for the network, and was conceived as a vehicle to welcome home Elvis Presley, who was returning from Germany, after his separation from the service. Reviews of the show were generally positive, and the highlight of the program was the once-in-a-lifetime pairing of the The Chairman of the Board and The King, as they performed a duet of each other's hits -- 'Love Me Tender' and 'Witchcraft.'

Review : Tucson '76 FTD CD

The first soundboard that we have for a long, long time from the official label is a good show with some surprises. The show was recorded in Tucson, Arizona in June 1st 1976. The artwork is weak, but I have seen worse on the FTD-series. I like the design of the disc itself. The sound is very clear and loud, with all the instruments very audible, but somehow it does not give you that 'live feeling' like on Let Me Take Your Home or Holding Back The Years, for example. But let's talk about the very good content.

Video : Lisa Marie and Elvis Presley Video Duet : I Love You Because

Watch the emotional duet featuring Lisa Marie Presley and Elvis singing Elvis Presley Video 'I Love You Because'. The audio 'single' is now available to purchase from iTunes and the video will be available soon. The video itself is a masterpiece that I must say brought tears to my eyes. You will see Lisa Marie in the Sun studio recording the song and home film of Elvis' grandchildren. Lisa Marie performs a wonderful duet with her late father and does not 'take over' the song - with the first 1 minute 33 seconds with only Elvis' vocals before Lisa joins in for the remaining 1 minute 22 seconds.

Review : 'Elvis : Way Down In The Jungle Room' Sony Legacy 2 CD

The cleverly titled 'Way Down in the Jungle Room' is another Elvis session anthology from RCA/Legacy that was conceived in the style of 2013's critically acclaimed 'Elvis at Stax'. It includes all the masters and many outtakes from the 'Jungle Room' sessions that took place from February 2-8 and October 29-30, 1976 at the 'den' of Graceland, Elvis' home in Memphis, TN. Back then, nobody could have guessed that these sessions would become a rather sad part of music history as Elvis Presley's last studio recordings. The songs that were recorded at those sessions ended up on the albums 'From Elvis Presley Boulevard, Memphis, Tennessee' (1976) and 'Moody Blue' (1977), which were both still released during Elvis' lifetime.

Elvis : Double Date At The Gate : 40th Anniversary Edition 2 CD Set

On November 28 & 29, 1976 Elvis performed two shows at the Cow Palace in the flower-city San Francisco.

Unfortunately, the sound engineer was not able to capture the whole shows while recording, but on this release, you will find every second that was captured. The sound on both shows has been remastered by professionals and has never sounded better. Period.

Bill Medley Remembers Elvis Presley (Inc. 'Old Friend' by Bill Medley)

First time I had any contact with Elvis I was in the hospital and Elvis sent me a telegram ... I had written and recorded this song called Old Friend and in the song it says, 'Would you be here if I could have been there?' in the song and that really means that at one point I think it was the second time maybe he went into the hospital or something I wanted to come to Memphis and talk to Elvis as a friend, you know, didn't want a Cadillac, didn't need anything, didn't want anything, just loved him.
