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 ...

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.

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. These shows have been regarded as some of Elvis' finest performances during this busy bicentennial year for The King. Gathered here in a beautiful 2-disc digipack, Elvis : Double Date At The Gate, is both shows in excellent quality. 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.

Review : Good Times FTD Special Edition 2 CD Classic Album

Good Times marked the second album released from Elvis' 1973 sessions at Stax studio in Memphis. This version from the Follow That Dream collectors label includes all ten tracks from the original album and thirty-seven additional tracks of alternate takes and undubbed masters. FTD's Classic Album series serves as the best possible format for this album, with sound quality in most cases as good or better than previous releases. FTD's version of Good Times turns out to be a fine upgrade of the original album.

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.

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

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, 'Sprit 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. 'Sprit Of Jackson, MS' is a 2-CD digipack.

Interview with the producers of 'The Wonder of You'

'If I Can Dream' was the dynamic production duo of Don Reedman (Barbra Streisand, Michael Crawford) and Nick Patrick (Plácido Domingo, Il Divo). Reedman first approached executive producer Priscilla Presley with the idea to marry vintage Elvis vocal tracks with the RPO at famed Abbey Road Studios in London, and it was an idea she wholly embraced. Buoyed by the reception of If I Can Dream, the production Dream Team reunited to emerge with another stellar Elvis/RPO offering, 'The Wonder of You: Elvis Presley With the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra' (RCA/Legacy), a worthy sequel if ever there was.

Review : 'The Wonder Of You: Elvis With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra' CD

Sony has done some outstanding reissues featuring Elvis, including taking some chances with the King. This 'new' Elvis Presley album includes the King singing lovely with his backing band at the time with newer overdubs by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. This is the second time this has been done, telling me people are digging it. I found myself really liking the first album, 'If I Can Dream', simply for the fact they cherrypicked some of El's best vocal performances and added simple, organic and extremely tasteful snippets of the Royal Philharmonic. The results were surprisingly good, with the string arrangements totally unobtrusive to the main instrument, being Elvis' voice. 'The Wonder of You' focuses less on El's big, well-known hits for '70s material featuring the master soul-mining newer pop material, and, many times, far surpassing the 'original' versions. Elvis' band at the time was top-notch in the studio, so that was an important element for this to work. Well-recorded and mixed, the songs stand by themselves.

'Elvis : Hilton Showroom Volume 6' 2 CD Set

AudiRec proudly presents the new import-release 'Elvis - Hilton Showroom Volume 6' a brandnew 2 CD Set which will be released at the end of this month (November). This time we have decided to release the Midnight Show from August 27, 1974 and it is the first time that this show is available on a 'real' cd in its entirety. One day earlier (on the 26th) Elvis had to cancel both shows to virtually 'stay in bed' because of the flu. He was definitely upset about this and has been heard saying 'I would have not canceled a show but the doctors told me that I might get pneumonia again and put me in bed for several days'. But just one day later - on the 27th - he was back again!

FTD have released 'Elvis Gold Records Vol. 4' as a Special Edition 2 CD set in their Classic Album Series, and our order is on the way to us now. It was 10 years after the release of Elvis' Golden Records in 1958, that RCA Victor released Elvis' Gold Records Volume 4. It contained seven 'B' sides and only five 'A' sides. Whether at the behest of Colonel Tom Parker, or RCA, the philosophy of not including tracks that already featured on existing albums weakened what could have been a more powerful and hit-laden compilation.

Perfect for the holidays, and another winner here! The best seasonal songs and gospels are included here. Every year there are some 'new' Elvis Christmas Albums ... they all have the same tracks over and over ... how nice to have something really new now! One of THE highlights must be the alternate version of 'Winter Wonderland' it has a totally new approach and alternate ending which sound amazing! Another cool edit is the 'single' version of 'Merry Christmas Baby' without the overdubbs! 'The First Noel' sounds as if it is a RPO version, the original master was edited with the 2008 overdubbed version, and makes it more powerful then ever! As a bonus a 'duet' version of 'Mama Liked The Roses' is included, Elvis recorded two vocal overdubbs, these are combined here to get a very unusual version.
