Elvis new Official CD Releases in 2018

All the SONY & FTD Release News

- EIN presents all the SONY & FTD Elvis Presley CD news for 2018 -




FTD - What now, What next, Where to – What’s left?: During Elvis’ lifetime, RCA released a total of between 60 – 70 albums, consisting of dedicated recordings, movie soundtracks and live performances.
The FTD label has been doing an excellent job at looking at the recording anthology of Elvis Presley and releasing every significant LP or recording session on a 1CD or 2CD ‘Classic Album’ version.
However as noted with the recent "ELVIS" second LP release there are less and less outtakes and studio sessions left in the vaults.
FTD’s first release was ‘Burbank ’68’ fifteen years ago, so with all the past releases and packaging what is left for the collector?

Go here as EIN contributor Ian Garfield examines what has been released and what is left for the FTD collectors label..

FTD "What now, What next, What If?": The FTD label has been doing an excellent job at looking at the recording anthology of Elvis Presley and releasing every significant LP or recording session on a 1CD or 2CD ‘Classic Album’ version.
However, as noted with the recent "ELVIS" second LP release, there are less and less outtakes and studio sessions left in the vaults.
Following our previous article “What now, what next, where to – what’s left” where EIN contributor Ian Garfield reviewed what has already been released by FTD, he now looks at how FTD might present their future 'Classic Album' releases.
Over the next couple of weeks, EIN will cover the remaining movie soundtracks and the possible inclusions that could produce a suitable release for the avid collector for these recordings.
This article covers the possible releases of Kissin’ Cousins and Roustabout.
Go here as EIN also wants YOUR input and ideas - and we will send the final suggestions to Roger and Ernst at FTD.

‘Where No One Stands Alone’ In-Depth Review: It is forty years since Elvis Presley entered a recording studio and he seems very reluctant to record anything new. So in terms of releasing a "new" album of Elvis material the topic has always been a tricky one. After commercial failure of the last Elvis / RPO album that concept has been dropped in favour of an Andy Childs led “Re-Vamp” of some Elvis Gospel.
Recorded over fifty years ago there is no doubt that some of Elvis’ Gospel songs might benefit from some sensitive modern production. And, after all, there is an interesting selection of tracks to work with. Not only that, but Lisa Marie was also involved in the recording.
So can a new ‘Re-Vamp’ of Elvis Gospel really work and can we recommend it to Elvis collectors?
Click here as EIN's Piers Beagley and Bryan Gruszka are back again to cause "Double-trouble" and supply a very detailed review, discovering what's good and bad...
And HAVE YOUR SAY - what do you think of the new album? Are we wrong in our opinions?

Two New FTDs for September: FTD is pleased to announce two new releases for this month...
- “Elvis: `What Now My Love” - a live soundboard released as a 5” double-digipack, this set features Elvis in great form from his legendary Vegas shows in August 1972 at the Hilton Hotel, Las Vegas.
'What Now My Love' consists of the Midnight Shows on August 11 and 12 1972 . Between Madison Square Garden and Aloha From Hawaii, the Elvis Presley Show was at its peak!
Elvis is in top form with both new and old songs in his repertoire, and especially with the addition of 3 great new songs, “What Now My Love,” “Fever” and “My Way.” In an effort to find the right style for each arrangement, Elvis totally commits himself to each performance. The opening lines of “What Now My Love” will send thrills down your spine! The shows are in above average ‘soundboard quality’ but unfortunately the ending is missing from the second show.
EIN notes that both these concerts have been previously released on fine quality bootlegs, Fort Baxter's 'Elvis At Full Blast' and Madison's 'Hot August Night'. Let's hope the new audio re-master makes it worthy of an official FTD re-release.
DISC 1 August 11, 1972 Midnight Show: 1) Also Sprach Zarathustra 2) See See Rider 3) I Got A Woman / Amen 4) Proud Mary 5) Until It’s Time For You To Go 6) You've Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’ 7) Polk Salad Annie 8) What Now My Love 9) Fever 10) Love Me 11) All Shook Up 12) (Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear/ Don't Be Cruel 13) Heartbreak Hotel 14) Blue Suede Shoes 15) Little Sister/ Get Back 16) Hound Dog 17) It’s Over 18) Suspicious Minds 19) Introductions 20) My Way 21) A Big Hunk O’ Love 22) American Trilogy 23) Can't Help Falling In Love 24) Closing Vamp
DISC 2 - August 12, 1972 Midnight Show: 1) Also Sprach Zarathustra 2) See See Rider 3) I Got A Woman –/ Amen 4) Proud Mary 5) Never Been To Spain 6) Until It’s Time For You To Go 7) You've Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’ 8)    Polk Salad Annie 9) What Now My Love 10) Fever) 11) Love Me 12) Blue Suede Shoes 13) One Night 14) All Shook Up 15) (Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear/ Don't Be Cruel 16) Heartbreak Hotel 17) Hound Dog 18) For The Good Times 19) Suspicious Minds 20) Introductions 21) My Way 22) American Trilogy 23) A Big Hunk O’ Love 24) Tiger Man (start only)

'Saved' "new" Gospel Album taster: First sample from the "new" Gospel album, featuring the fabulous Darlene Love (NBC special) it is 'Saved'.
The album 'Elvis Presley - Where No One Stands Alone' features 14 original performances of gospel songs with newly recorded instrumentation and backing vocals, all in support of Elvis' original lead vocal recordings.
"Saved" is an energetic gospel-rock call-and-response tune with some fun rhythmic twists, sassy lyrics and Darlene Love jumping in on background vocals. And in classic Elvis fashion, the king testifies as he gives up his errant ways.
Love, who first sang with Elvis on his 1968 NBC TV special, shares, "I had the honor to perform a terrific version of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stroller's 'Saved' on the popular ABC TV show Shindig in 1965 with The Blossoms. Though we never recorded it officially it predates Elvis' version which I sang background vocals for with the group."
Elvis once said, "Since I was 2 years old, all I knew was gospel music. It became such a part of my life, it was as natural as dancing. A way to escape my problems, and my way of release." We can feel the glory!
CLICK HERE to YOUTUBE to listen.
Starting off with extremely different instrumentation it is not as bad some "remakes" with a nice bluesey ending, although "hard-core fans" will probably not be impressed.

'Elvis: Ohama, Nebraska '74' FTD in-depth Review: This FTD double-pack features two concerts from Elvis’ third tour of 1974, both performances from Omaha on June 30 1974. It was the first time Elvis had played Ohama, Nebraska since 1956 and it was the penultimate city on this 25 performance tour. Elvis played three shows over two days, and a six week holiday was in sight.
Elvis was in a fine mood, did he really...
- Announce that he was  ‘Jimmy Dean’ “I’m here to sell some Pork Sausages”?
- Joke that his first movie was 1972 porn flick ‘Behind the Green Door’?
- Start singing “What a friend we have in Jesus”?
. . . . . You bet he did!

Go here as Elvis soundboard super-collector Geoffrey McDonnell & EIN's Piers Beagley give you the complete low-down on this new FTD double-pack ....

'Elvis - Where No One Stands Alone' New Release: EIN beat Graceland to the official announcement but EPE have now posted....
.. Groundbreaking New Elvis Album features 14 Original Performances of Gospel Songs with Newly-Recorded Instrumentation and Backing Vocals featuring Legendary Presley Alumnae including Darlene Love, Cissy Houston, The Imperials and The Stamps
RCA/Legacy Recordings will release "Elvis Presley - Where No One Stands Alone," a new Elvis album celebrating the artist's everlasting love of gospel music, on Friday, August 10.
Produced by Joel Weinshanker, Lisa Marie Presley and Andy Childs, "Where No One Stands Alone" introduces newly-recorded instrumentation and backing vocal contributions from music legends who'd performed on-stage and/or in-the-studio with Elvis. It also includes a reimagined duet with Elvis and his daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, on the album's title track and spiritual touchstone.
"It was a very powerful and moving experience to sing with my father," wrote Lisa Marie in her notes for the album. "The lyrics speak to me and touch my soul. I'm certain that the lyrics spoke to my father in much the same way."

Background vocalists on the album include: Darlene Love (who first sang with Elvis on his 1968 NBC television special); Dr. Emily "Cissy" Houston (who, with The Sweet Inspirations, sang with Elvis on-stage beginning in 1969); Terry Blackwood, Armond Morales and Jim Murray (members of The Imperials, who sang on Elvis' How Great Thou Art - with the title song winning the 1967 Grammy for Best Sacred Performance); and Donnie Sumner, Bill Baize, Ed Hill and Larry Strickland (members of longtime backup group, The Stamps).
Pre-Order special- EPE / Shop Graceland will have exclusive, limited edition versions of the album on blue 12" vinyl and cassette configurations.
Fans purchasing the CD, exclusive blue vinyl, and cassette together from ShopGraceland.com will receive a limited edition lithograph signed by Lisa Marie Presley. Click here to pre-order from ShopGraceland.

"Elvis Presley - Where No One Stands Alone" provides new musical perspectives on 14 of the singer's favorite pieces of gospel music, from the reverential to the celebratory, with song selections including Presley's

beloved enduring gospel classics (the 1965 Top 5 smash "Crying In The Chapel," "How Great Thou Art," "You'll Never Walk Alone"), praise-filled gospel-rockers (Jerry Lieber and Mike Stoller's "Saved") and traditional hymns and spirituals ("So High," "Stand By Me," "In The Garden," "Amazing Grace").
Elvis Presley once said, "Since I was two years old, all I knew was gospel music. It became such a part of my life, it was as natural as dancing. A way to escape my problems, and my way of release." It was Elvis'
explosive mix of styles--blues, bluegrass, country, swing, pop--that generated his iconic world-changing rock n' roll, but it was the hymns, spirituals and church music of his childhood, the deep-seated gospel roots that sustained Elvis and his musical vision throughout his life.
Friends and family would often recall hearing Elvis sing gospel tunes at home and to warm up before concerts. "We do two shows a night for five weeks," Presley said in an interview featured in the documentary 'Elvis On Tour' "A lotta times we'll go upstairs and sing until daylight-gospel songs. We grew up with it... It more or less puts your mind at ease. It does mine."
Lisa Marie states in the album notes, "This was his favorite genre - no question about it. He seemed to be at his most passionate, and at peace while singing gospel. He would truly come alive - whether he was singing just for himself and me at home, or on stage in front of thousands of fans."
TrackList 1. I've Got Confidence 2. Where No One Stands Alone (with Lisa Marie Presley) 3. Saved 4. Crying In The Chapel 5. So High 6. Stand By Me 7. Bosom Of Abraham 8. How Great Thou Art 9. I, John 10. You'll Never Walk Alone 11. He Touched Me 12. In The Garden 13. He Is My Everything 14. Amazing Grace

'Where No One Stands Alone' New SONY release: There have been rumours going around about Lisa Marie working with the Elvis/RPO producers and recording a new Elvis / Lisa Marie duet.
This is one of the likely reasons Lisa Marie has such prominence in the 2018 Elvis week celebrations.

COME ON FTD! Let's Speed Things Up A Little!: EIN has very strongly supported the FTD label from the start even though their quality control has slipped at times.
Recently this seems to have got worse, perhaps due to the producers Ernst Jorgensen and Roger Semon's extra work with mainstream SONY releases.
The last couple of FTD live soundboards have notably run slow dragging down the pace of Elvis' performance. This has also been an issue on some previous concert releases.
On ELVIS LAS VEGAS '74' FTD the dates were wrong with the two shows reversed from what the cover indicated.
Do FTD collectors deserve better or should we be happy to have anything released with faults and all?

EIN review ‘Elvis: The Searcher’ Deluxe CD boxset: If your main interest in Elvis is his music then HBO’s ‘Elvis: The Searcher’ will probably become your favourite documentary ever produced about our hero.
The companion 3-CD deluxe edition box set offers an expanded 55-track overview of Elvis’ career as heard in the film including familiar hit recordings, powerful vocal performances and rare outtakes plus a bonus disc of additional recordings relevant to the film - including several early singles that inspired Elvis.
Thom Zimny said, "To live with the music of The Searcher over a period of years was more than a privilege. It changed my thinking about the emotional life of songs, both for those who make them and those who listen to them."
While keen Elvis fans may already own all the chosen songs Director Thom Zimny's selection is so eclectic that there is still plenty to enjoy and discover. But does the box-set really work without having seen the film?
Go here as EIN's Piers Beagley provides an indepth review and investigates how the new box-set works compared with the HBO documentary....

'Elvis: Murfreesboro '74'' FTD In-Depth Review: March 1974 was Elvis' ninth tour of the US and included twenty-five performances in under 3 weeks. Freed from the constraints of the Las Vegas Hilton casino crowd, Elvis was in fine form and putting on great shows. The new FTD double-CD features Elvis' two Murfreesboro shows March 14 and March 19 (the penultimate concert before 'Live In Memphis') from this 1974 tour.

FTD have already released four concerts from this tour, the Tulsa March 1 Opening Show, the Memphis March 17 Evening show, the Richmond March 18 concert plus the RCA recorded 'Live In Memphis' March 20 Closing Night.
So do we really need yet another two 1974 soundboards from this March tour? Well, well, well.. the answer is a definite YES!

Elvis soundboard super-collector Geoffrey McDonnell & EIN's Piers Beagley check out this new FTD double-pack .....

'Murfreesboro '74' FTD will be One of the Best!: Elvis' March 1974 tour was one of the strongest of the year and FTD have already released four concerts from that tour, including the famous Memphis show.
But if you are considering that you don't need yet another 2 concerts from that tour, then Reconsider-Baby as FTD contributor Robert Frieser notes that these are two of Elvis' best performances from 1974.
.. The two Murfreesboro shows from March 14th and especially March 19 can be seen as the highlight of the March tour.
These shows can be seen as a prelude to the famous record recording of March 20 in Memphis, the recording of which Elvis received a grammy award for his rendition of How Great Thou Art, counts as one of the best shows of 1974.
The Tour had highlights such as the Tulsa Shows, Houston Astrodome shows but also the Roanoke and Richmond shows were top notch.
The tour was actually a 15 day tour but because of the speed with which the tickets were sold out, more shows were booked.
 
Elvis who had not toured since July 1973 had first completed a fully booked season in Las Vegas in January & February of 1974. At those shows in Las Vegas there was quite some criticism in the media, but that criticism faded with the shows he did in March. The shows were highly professional and alternating his voice and show attitude was good.
The show of March 14th is a very cool show, vocally Elvis is in top form. During Love Me Tender Elvis is irritated by the feedback. And Elvis asks Felton to do something about the sound. Polk salad Annie is a top version and on Why Me Lord he does the last part of the song again. At the end of Suspicious Minds he does a one-liner of Take These Chains. For Charlie Hodge it's a special evening, Elvis told the audience that the parents of Charlie Hodge are in the audience and therefore he does a duet with Charlie on Help Me.
The sound of the show is of a good sound quality. So we have something to enjoy, Elvis is in good shape and gives people value for their money but the highlight of this release is the show on March 19th. The show of Richmond a day earlier was already a top show and Elvis was pretty loose and in his element.
The show in Murfreesboro is even better, this is because it's the end of the tour and maybe the looking forward of the Memphis record recording, that Elvis keeps getting better and better.

In this show Elvis has even more fun and Elvis is even more loose and vocally even better.This show features a powerhouse performance of Steamroller Blues and also during the introductions, Elvis takes the time to thank Ramada Inn for the good care of the group. before Help Me, Elvis tells us that the song was written by Larry Gaitlin. Sadly the tape ends 40 seconds into Mystery Train. This show was the best show of the tour. A professional show with Elvis very much at ease.
These shows have been on the wish list by ftd for a long time.
As Robert Frieser wrote in the liner notes for the FTD release ‘Sold Out’ (Tulsa, March 1 Opening Show)
... 1974 was the year when US President Richard Nixon resigned live on national TV (following the Watergate scandal); it marked the end of a worldwide oil embargo; Muhammad Ali won, by a knock-out in 8 rounds, the ‘Rumble in the Jungle’ fight in Zaire with the then undefeated heavyweight champion, George Foreman. ‘Waterloo’ was the winning song during the Eurovision Song Contest, launching Swedish group ABBA on their stellar global career; Happy Days also made its American TV debut. The series presented an idealized vision of life in the mid-1950s to the mid-1960s and its popularity was partly due to the success of the 1974 movie American Graffiti that brought Bill Haley back in to the charts with his 1955 classic song ‘Rock Around The Clock’.
As far as Elvis was concerned, the unsurpassed success of Aloha From Hawaii in 1973 raised his popularity to an unprecedented height in 1974, as he was awarded a special ‘Trendsetter Award’ from Billboard magazine on February 9th. Compilation vinyl albums flooded the market - not only from Elvis (Elvis Forever, 40 Greatest Hits, etc.) but also other artists from the golden eras of the 1950s and ’60s like Bill Haley, James Brown, Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry and Little Richard - and the year marked the 20th anniversary of Elvis’ recording career. It was his busiest year since the 1950s: apart from his touring commitments, he played two month-long Las Vegas seasons (in January and August) alongside two Lake Tahoe (Stateline, Nevada) gigs in May and October.
Yet while most of the artists from the 1950s were relics from the past, Elvis stood on his own as a very successful solo artist with a very busy touring schedule throughout the USA (whereas most other artists mentioned were performing at small Rock ’n’ Roll Revival shows touring the entire world). Elvis performed as the biggest act in Las Vegas and Lake Tahoe and could easily compete with top bands like Led Zeppelin, The Who, Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles, or individual artists like Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan and Frank Sinatra, who also performed in the larger venues in the USA. Elvis could have played to fan-packed stadiums around the world also, but he (and his management) decided to stay within the US borders. Thus, a major opportunity for expanding his popularity even more - a year after the worldwide Aloha From Hawaii TV Special - was lost forever. 1974 may have been the perfect year to do shows overseas.
His first tour of the year started on March 1st in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Elvis performed two shows: an evening performance (March 1st) and an afternoon performance (March 2nd). It was his longest tour so far. It had been planned as a 15-day tour but, due to the high demand for tickets, more shows were added in Tulsa, Charlotte, Murfreesboro, Richmond and Memphis. Twenty-four concerts in 20 days! The fast ticket sales made Elvis’ management decide to record one of the concerts from this tour. At first the idea was to record a show from the Livestock Rodeo in Houston, Texas, but it was Elvis himself who came up with the idea to record a concert in his hometown of Memphis, Tennessee. The subsequent vinyl album Elvis Recorded Live On Stage In Memphis was released during the June tour in 1974.

EIN thanks Robert Frieser for the input and believe FTD should have been using these as part of their promotion.

Elvis 'The Searcher' Hits & Rarities Soundtrack: Rolling Stone has run a short news piece for the up-coming The Searcher release.
An expansive soundtrack Elvis Presley: The Searcher, will be released April 6th. The soundtrack features a mix of Elvis hits and alternate mixes, while a deluxe edition will feature selections from the documentary's score composed by Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready.
The Searcher soundtrack will be available digitally and on CD and double vinyl LP, while the deluxe edition will packaged as a three-CD set. All versions are available to pre-order.
Along with the original soundtrack and parts of Pearl Jam's Mike McCread's score, the deluxe edition of The Searcher soundtrack will include a plethora of bonus material including additional rarities, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' rendition of "Wooden Heart" and classic R&B, country and gospel songs that inspired Elvis.
The set will also come with a 40-page hardcover book packed with rare photographs and a note from director Thom Zimny.
Thom Zimny, "From day one I had a soundtrack in mind; one that would cover Elvis in a new way and go deep into the vault. Thanks to the help of Sony Legacy and the efforts of Ernst Jorgensen, I was able to pore over thousands of recordings and Elvis Presley outtakes. I also wanted the film's soundtrack to pay tribute to the many artists who influenced Elvis, and to incorporate their music to create a sonic landscape that I hoped would give the viewer the experiences Elvis had absorbing the many genres he was exposed to and influenced by – from gospel, to R&B, to country."
He added that McCready's score "brought additional sonic textures and emotional overtones that helped to capture this artist's journey."
The Searcher will premiere on HBO April 14th.
The film was made with the cooperation of EPE and Zimny was reportedly allowed unprecedented access to the Graceland archives.

'Kissin' Cousins' FTD Soundtrack Review: The final Elvis movie soundtrack album in FTD's Classic Album series.
Kissin’ Cousins was Elvis’ 14th movie release and it was Elvis' first budget movie production.
The 'Kissin’ Cousins' album was released in April 1964 and it was his lowest charting soundtrack album so far.
About the release UK Fan Club President Albert Hand stated, "Here we have an artiste, the finest in the world, being slowly but surely – as a chart prospect – being killed off inches by inches through sheer stupidity”.
Elvis didn't attend the soundtrack session in Nashville and so there is very little available in studio outtakes. FTD however have discovered some previously unreleased material - along with the session backing tracks.

FTD have compiled a packed CD and EIN contributor Ian Garfield checks out this new FTD soundtrack album to discover some fine gems hidden in the old mountain dirt..

'Elvis: The Bicentennial Show' 1976' FTD In-Depth Review: 1976 is not an easy Elvis live-in-concert year to review. There were no major set-list changes, no dramatic "emotional roller-coaster" of 1974 and no high-flying "Huntsville" 1975 excitements. Apart from the exceptional blast of the final December 1976 Tour the year was the inevitable downward spiral.

However there were some highlights along the way and Elvis collectors have always been keen to hear Elvis' July 4th 1976 Bicentennial performance, as well as RCA's Joan Deary's initial choice for the 1980 box-set of Duluth, October 16, 1976

As FTD releases two more 1976 soundboards, will Elvis be back on form and are there any surprises in store..

At the time it featured 89 previously Unreleased tracks.

FTD will NOT end in 2019:  A fair number of uninformed supposed Elvis "insiders" (even some Fan Club Presidents) have been publishing fictional stories that the FTD label is planning to close in 2019.
Ernst Jorgensen had strongly denied this story stating, that FTD has plans to continue for the foreseeable future.
In an interesting interview about 'The Future of FTD' - with Trevor Cajiao in the recent ETM&HM magazine - Ernst Jorgensen's main points were....
1. FTD will not be closing in 2019
2. The 'Classic Albums" series is nearly complete but there are more to come, noting 'Aloha' and 'Madison Square Garden' are still to be done.
3. Expanded "complete session tapes" releases are being considered
4. Plenty more soundboards to come
To read the complete story including answers about FTD deletions and other future ideas please read the December issue of ETM&HM.
For what's left for FTD check out our detailed listing
