Elvis new Official CD Releases in 2019

All the SONY & FTD Release News

- EIN presents all the SONY & FTD Elvis Presley CD news for 2019 -




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.

'ELVIS: American Sound 1969' FTD 5CD Box-Set OUT NOW: Fans will be delighted to know that the FTD 5CD deluxe boxset 'ELVIS: AMERICAN SOUND 1969' has at last been released and is OUT NOW.
The Memphis 1969 session collection features over 90 tracks of rare and unreleased material from Elvis’ 1969 American Sound Studio sessions, which resulted in his From Elvis In Memphis record later that year. 'Elvis: American Sound 1969' is the deluxe box-set featuring all known and previously unreleased outtakes from the legendary American Sound Sessions, Including “In The Ghetto” and “Suspicious Minds”.
This 5-CD set that’s part of FTD’s new ‘Sessions’ series, includes a 28-page booklet with rare photos and memorabilia.
See below for full tracklist
EIN notes that in all honesty only a very few outtakes have not yet been released by FTD and these are...
Long Black Limousine – Takes 1,2,3 & 5
Wearin’ That Loved On Look – Takes 1,2, & 5
You’ll Think Of Me – Takes 11, 19, 20 & 22
In The Ghetto – Takes 5-10 - .... and that is all.

While not a "Complete Sessions" to have all these session gathered together on a 5 disc set with 28-page booklet plus uniform remastering makes this an essential collector's purchase if you can afford it.
Both the FTD 'ELVIS: American Sound 1969' box-set and ‘Elvis Sings Memphis Tennessee’ Double-Vinyl releases are OUT NOW

'American Sound 1969' Special RSD Vinyl: Record Store Day are doing special "BLACK FRIDAY 2019" releases this November and 'Elvis Presley - American Sound 1969' gets a limited 4000 copies double-vinyl release.
... 1969 was a pivotal year for Elvis Presley. Fresh from the success of the '68 Comeback Special, a revitalized Elvis headed to American Sound Studios with producer Chips Moman and a crack group of local session musicians. From these sessions came From Elvis In Memphis, one of the most beloved LPs of his career, plus the seminal hits "Suspicious Minds" (his 18th and final No. 1 hit) and "In The Ghetto." American Sound Sessions 1969, available for the first time on vinyl, features rare and unreleased outtakes from these legendary sessions.
As an "Alternate Album" this looks quite delicious.
These RSD Exclusive titles are physically released only at indie record stores.
Event: BLACK FRIDAY - 29/11/2019
Label: Legacy - Quantity: 4000

New Cover! - 'ELVIS: American Sound 1969' FTD 5CD Box-Set: Fans will be pleased to see that FTD have redesigned the cover of their up-coming boxset 'ELVIS: AMERICAN SOUND 1969' 5CD Deluxe "Complete sessions" release.
The Memphis 1969 session collection features over 90 tracks of rare and unreleased material from Elvis’ 1969 American Sound Studio sessions, which resulted in his From Elvis In Memphis record later that year. 'Elvis: American Sound 1969' is the deluxe box-set featuring all known and previously unreleased outtakes from the legendary American Sound Sessions, Including “In The Ghetto” and “Suspicious Minds”.

You’ll Think Of Me – Takes 11, 19, 20 & 22
In The Ghetto – Takes 5-10 - .... and that is all.

Fasn should note that the set was never intended to be the 'complete' sessions. Therefore it does not include sub-standard, inconsequential and fragmented material that has surfaced illegally on bootleg over the years. It features all the recordings deemed essential by the producers.
We will only be manufacturing to satisfy initial orders."

EIN noticed from the start for instance that the tracklist is obviously missing 'Only the Strong Survive' takes 2-7 "Dear Georgie"!

However to have all these session gathered together on a 5 disc set with 28-page booklet plus uniform remastering makes this an essential collector's purchase if you can afford it.
Both the FTD 'ELVIS: American Sound 1969' box-set and ‘Elvis Sings Memphis Tennessee’ Double-Vinyl releases are delayed until the last week of September. (News, Source;ElvisInfoNet)

'The Fun In Acapulco Sessions' Deluxe FTD Review: Released by FTD back in March 'The Fun In Acapulco Sessions' is a 3-CD set that the publicity noted included more than an hour of previously unreleased false starts and complete takes!
The 28-page booklet includes rare photographs, memorabilia, session data, Movie Trivia and an updated overview of the movie by Alan Hanson - with all tracks recently remixed and remastered.
A Mexican locale, some Tijuana horns, plus the interesting presence of the Mexican ‘Amigos’ at the recording sessions presented a novel setting for Elvis.
If you like Elvis, sunny locations, sixties movies packed full of songs and the Latino sound then there is no doubt that Fun In Acapulco must be one of your favourites.
But 56 years after the original album and movie can there really be that much of interest left in the vault unreleased?

'Elvis: From Georgia To Florida' 1975 new FTD: A new FTD double-soundboard release 'Elvis: From Georgia To Florida' has been announced featuring two concerts from April 1975.
Released as a 5" digipack, a 2CD set features Elvis in great form from his shows at the Coliseum in Macon on April 24, 1975 and previously unreleased Lakeland April 27, 1975 Afternoon Show.
The set-list is fine including Big Boss Man, It's Midnight, Promised Land, Burning Love, Help Me, My Boy, T-R-O-U-B-L-E and I'll Remember You.
EIN notes: If this looks familiar to fans it is because FTD released 'Elvis In Florida April 1975' back in 2014 which featured the Lakeland April 27, 1975 Evening Show.
Unfortunately soundboards from the start of this tour all have the same inherent 'problem' a HEAVY bias towards Piano. On the 'Elvis In Florida' release we noted that some of the tracks sounded almost a capella with only piano and backing-vocalists as accompaniment - there was often very little drums or orchestra in the mix.
Three tracks from Disc 1 Macon, April 24, were on the
excellent FTD compilation "Southern Nights" however these had far from the best audio quality.
Our review noted, "The 3 tracks from Macon suffer from poorer audio but are obviously included for the powerful trilogy of 'Big Boss Man', 'It's Midnight' and 'Promised Land'. It is odd that Kathy Westmoreland's rather dominant vocal shows a clarity that is actually needed for the whole band! 'Promised Land' in particular suffers from the lack of rhythm section."
Sadly with the barrel of unreleased Elvis material getting near empty collectors have to be pleased that we get anything new at all.

'From The Vault' 3CDs get Digital Release: The 'Elvis Presley - The Album Collection' released in 2016 included three extra 'Bonus' CDs featuring special tracks 'From The Vaults'. These have now been released on your favourite digital platform.
... Elvis Presley released nearly 60 albums and placed a record-setting 115 singles in Billboard’s Top 40 during his lifetime - and that’s just the tip of the iceberg, as these three collections showcase. Compiled for The Album Collection box set in 2016, Elvis fans of all stripes can discover exciting rarities and outtakes from his incredible
career, featuring treasures from the Sun years, rare home recordings, duets, and late-period covers.
Click here to SONY for the links..
EIN's review of the 2016 box-set was however not impressed by these strange collections.
..Reviewer Shane Brown noted, "From The Vaults" should have been single-only sides and masters released after Elvis's death. And they would have been a fun listen. As it is, these final discs are a truly unmitigated mess, switching from poor sounding TV recordings to stellar sounding studio recordings to distorted private recordings and then back again. Fans already have this material, and the more general buyer is not likely to have any interest in it.. Go here for our full ''Album Collection" review and tracklisting

'The Best Of The '68 Comeback Special' CD Review: The original NBC TV Special featured Elvis playing with so much passion that it inspired a career renaissance
Released to cash-in on the recent “Elvis All-Star Tribute” one can only hope that the mass of Post Malone and Ed Sheeran fans will consider Elvis’ amazing musical legacy worth checking out.
Elvis never looked cooler than in the 68 Special and this surely has got to help.
The original ELVIS NBC soundtrack vinyl album was obviously the very first selected ‘Best Of’ while BMG’s marvellous 1998 “Memories” double-album was an expanded version. This new ‘Best Of’ has presumably been selected by Rob Santos and John Jackson.
Elvis was SO DAMN GOOD performing for the NBC TV special that any alternate edit has to be enjoyable so EIN thought it worth giving the new set a spin. With all of Elvis’ USA sales getting a positive bump after the new TV show we know that this new set is being played in a fair few homes.  
EIN's Piers Beagley investigates, can another '68 ComeBack Special compilation really be worth buying all over again?
and Have Your Say! Does this really help Elvis' great legacy...

'Elvis: St Paul To Wichita: Oct 1974' FTD In-Depth Review: A live soundboard 5” double-digipack this time focussing on Elvis' Tour 12 which went from September 27 to October 9.
Two concerts St. Paul, Minnesota October 3, 1974 and Wichita, Kansas October 7, 1974 are included with three bonus songs from October 4, 1974.
Best of all these are both previously unreleased soundboards.
While Elvis had performed some memorable shows earlier in 1974, the September-October 1974 tour was not one of his best, with highlights sparsely dotted across the shows. The infamous College Park performance was during this tour, but by October 3 it was clear Elvis was up and enjoying himself.
In high energy and good humour Elvis at one point jokes, "By God, you might have been wrong for so long, but you were right tonight J.D!"
The soundboard audio quality is excellent.

'Holiday Season In Vegas: 1975' FTD In-Depth Review: A live soundboard 5” double-digipack release featuring Elvis back in Las Vegas for his 14th season in December 1975.
Elvis always preferred the Midnight concerts to the Dinner Shows and Elvis' December 13 Midnight Show with Linda Thompson and her parents in the audience was one of his very best Vegas shows.
Elvis asked, "Did you decide to go crazy?" and the set that follows has far more energy and excitement than most of Elvis' later Vegas shows. It was a Saturday Night 1975 and Elvis sure was back!
However since most Elvis collectors will already have a bootleg copy, the previously unreleased December 6th concert - spliced from both Dinner & Midnight Shows - has to be the draw-card here. BUT the poor sound quality and Elvis' lacklustre performance is a possible let-down...
Click here as Elvis soundboard super-collector Geoffrey McDonnell & EIN's Piers Beagley check out the reality of this new FTD double-pack and question how essential it really is?

'The Best of The '68 Comeback Special' OUT TOMORROW: The new companion album to NBC's "Elvis All-Star Tribute" titled 'The Best of The '68 Comeback Special' will be released worldwide by RCA/Legacy Recordings on February 15, 2019.
Described as "An ideal set for long time Elvis fans and newcomers, 'The Best of The '68 Comeback Special' comprises the Elvis recordings and performances that inspired the upcoming tribute and showcases a new version of the legendary closing number, "If I Can Dream" as heard in the new special - featuring Elvis' original vocals alongside new performances by Carrie Underwood, Shawn Mendes, Post Malone, Darius Rucker and Blake Shelton. The album features 15 Elvis performances from the "stand-up" and "sit-down" shows filmed for the '68 broadcast, plus three original studio recordings (A Little Less Conversation, Suspicious Minds, Burning Love) to represent other songs that appear in the new special.
The original special, recorded over several sessions in June 1968, featured Elvis playing the songs that mattered most to him, in his first live performance since 1961. When it aired on December 3, 1968, the special was the week's highest-viewed television program, re-establishing Elvis as a driving force in popular music.

See below for tracklisting: includes Prevously Unreleased new "Duet" "If I Can Dream" - Elvis Presley, Carrie Underwood, Shawn Mendes, Post Malone, Darius Rucker, Blake Shelton

New format - Elvis Presley (Experimental Release 6) High Definition Music Card (Blu-ray): Have you heard about the new format that will replace the music CD and revolutionize the music industry as you know it? Let us introduce to you the new High Definition Music Card. If you love music, then you have a lot of sources to choose from today.

But, if you REALLY love music, you're probably not satisfied with the sound quality of what you are listening to. Your frustration is comparable to a viewer watching a movie in IMAX and 3-D at the local theater, and then seeing the same recording on their Smartphone... wow, what a difference.

See, the High Definition Music Card is based on an advanced technology that places each sound in a unique 3-D location in space. Well, now you can get that 3-D type of experience in music by using The High Definition Music Card.

Developed by Alexander Goldberg Jero, winner of prestigious Surround Music Awards, The High Definition Music Card is a new USB format device for delivering music content that features the latest advances in surround sound reproduction that compares with no other format in the world.
The release features 11 Elvis tracks licensed from Sony Music plus a swag of bonus extras. Available only on a pre-order basis so if you are interested you'd be wise to order quickly. 
EIN NOTE: Please investigate the new technology before purchasing. Back in 2002 David Bendeth produced the rather fine 'Surround Sound' 5.1 version of 'Elvis 30#1 Hits'. While the multitrack Elvis recordings (ie Memphis Sessions onward) sounded fantastic, the manipulated 3 track stereo or mono recordings were trickier fare.
From the tracklist it looks that newer 'Where No One Stand Alone' overdub versions could be in this playlist. There is no way that the recordings come from "7.1 / 5.1 surround sound configuration" original RCA masters.

Released as a 5" digipack, and taken from the original soundboard source, this 2-CD set features Elvis in excellent form from the fall tour of 1974.
Elvis' 1974 September / October tour saw him on a post Desert-Storm emotional and physical roller-coaster. Some shows were particularly poor. However FTD promise that "Elvis was in great form and using a variety of repertoire."


Neither show has previously been released, even on bootleg, so it will be very interesting to discover how Elvis performed these nights.

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.

'ELVIS: “Holiday Season In Vegas 1975' Disc 2: EIN contributor "Ciscoking" has compared audience recordings from the Dec 6, 1975 Diner and Midnight Shows to reveal how FTD have compiled the second disc of their new 'Holiday Season in Las Vegas 1975'
The CD features the two concerts not edited but instead spliced mid-concert, presumably due to only portions of the shows being recorded or due to tape damage.
FTD DISC 2 December 6 1975 - C.C. Rider, I Got A Woman/Amen, Love Me, Fairytale, Instrumental, And I Love You So, Trying To Get To You, All Shook Up, Teddy Bear/Don’t Be Cruel, One Night, Polk Salad Annie, Introductions, Just Pretend, How Great Thou Art, Burning Love, Softly, As I Leave You, America, Can’t Help Falling In Love (last bars missing)
It is half the Dinner Show followed by half the Midnight Show therefore only dated December 6, 1975.
Several songs have been previously released on the 'Live In Las Vegas' box-set CD4. (shown bold)
EIN Thanks "Ciscoking" Joachim Bernecker for his input
The December 13th 1975 Dinner Show was previously out on FTD as 'Dinner At Eight'

Thursday 1 November

'The King In The Ring' VINYL 50th Anniv Release: The 50th anniversary of Elvis Presley's groundbreaking 1968 NBC "Comeback Special" is also being celebrated with the 2LP vinyl presentation of "The King In The Ring." Originally released on a red vinyl limited edition run for Record Store Day this 2LP set showcases the standout, intimate "sit down" sets from the '68 special. These laid-back live performances were recorded in the round before a small audience and featured a powerful ensemble, including guitarist Scotty Moore and drummer D.J. Fontana, both part of Elvis' original classic backing band.
... In 1968 Elvis Presley re-established himself as the King of Rock and Roll with ELVIS, the "comeback special", to celebrate the 50th anniversary of ELVIS both electrifying intimate "sit-down" sets will be released in the 2LP package with a beautiful gatefold sleeve.

General release November 30th
Great Cover shot.

'The King In The Ring' VINYL 50th Anniversary Release - Double LP.

Great prices at Amazon.

$23 in the USA

And in the UK £18.05

The VINYL Boom: Over 7.6 million vinyl LPs were sold in the USA during the first half of 2018, a 20% increase from the previous year, while in Australia vinyl sales increased by $3 million, the same increase of 20%. In the same period CD sales however dropped by 15%.
Elvis vinyl is still selling very nicely with ‘ELV1S: 30 #1 Hits’ recently in the UK Top ten VINYL charts.
And there is plenty of Elvis Presley vinyl on offer....

‘ELV1S: 30 #1 Hits’ on GOLD Vinyl: ELV1S: 30 #1 Hits was re-released by Sony Music on GOLD Vinyl on 12 October. UK's Entertainment-Focus have posted this cute review.
... What is there to say about Elvis Presley that hasn’t already been said?
It may be 41 years since the icon died tragically at only 42 years old but his music continues to live on, and likely will forever. It’s actually mind-blowing to think that his music has survived for almost as long as he was alive. In 2002 Sony Music released a new greatest hits collection titled ELV1S: 30 #1 Hits, which dominated charts across the world and sold millions and millions of copies. 16 years on from its original release, ELV1S: 30 #1 Hits has been reissued on 2LP vinyl.
Taking inspiration from the album cover, the release has been pressed on gold vinyl making the whole package feel very special.
Presley was an incredibly prolific artist so getting this collection down to 31 tracks was no easy feat. It also includes the ALLC Junkie XL remix.
 What was achieved with ELV1S: 30 #1 Hits though, is a

collection that gives you all the highlights you need from The King’s career to showcase the incredible impact he had on music. The album opens with Heartbreak Hotel and there isn’t a single filler track here.
It’s actually near impossible to pick out highlights across the 2LPs because every single one of these songs is a classic.
Of course no Elvis collection would be complete without Suspicious Minds and that track is near the end of the track listing on the final side.
The release features the artwork from the original 2002 release and it’s a beautiful, high-quality gatefold. I mentioned earlier about the gold vinyl but what I’ve not commented on yet is the sound. The CD version was a little patchy given that the songs were all recorded at different times. It’s not as noticeable on the vinyl release and the quality is crystal clear. The warm crackle of vinyl adds to the overall feel too.
ELV1S: 30 #1 Hits is a must-have release for any Elvis Presley fan. While he had plenty of great songs that aren’t featured here, this collection truly is the definitive one to own. There’s not a single bad song here and it’s lengthy enough to give you value for money. The whole vinyl package is fantastic and it looks as good as it sounds.
They don’t make artists like Elvis anymore and they probably never will again.

‘ELV1S: 30 #1 Hits’ GOLD Vinyl Double LP.

 

'ELV1S: 30 #1 Hits' is a must-have release for any Elvis Presley fan.

Girls! + Loving You' with thirty tracks including Bonus tracks such as 'Is It So Strange' and even 'Good Luck Charm' out 29 October 2018 from Hoo Doo Records!

 

 

 

 


'68 Comeback Special - 50th-anniversary' deluxe box-set.

Priced at around US$150 and £95.40 in the UK.

Not cheap if you already own the DVDs and CD box-set but the Blu-Rays are still pretty tempting.

'68 Comeback Special - 50th-anniversary': More publicity out for the new box set.
... '68 Comeback Special (50th Anniversary Edition) is set for release on November 30 and includes five CDs of music plus two Blu-ray discs featuring video content.
After spending most of the decade in Hollywood making forgettable movies and mostly boring music to accompany those films, Presley staged a comeback in 1968 with a TV special that was simply called Elvis and aired on Dec. 3.
Part of that program featured Presley singing some of his old hits, as well as a few new songs, surrounded by a lavish, Hollywood-style backdrop. But another section of that show spotlighted Presley, decked out in black leather and armed with a guitar, sitting on a stool on a spare stage that also included guitarist Scotty Moore and drummer D.J. Fontana, two-thirds of the trio that catapulted Presley to fame in the mid '50s with their work on the Sun sessions and early RCA recordings.
That "sit-down" performance included raw takes of some of their best records, including "That's All Right" and "Heartbreak Hotel."
There were also scorching versions of "Baby, What You Want Me to Do" and "Lawdy, Miss Clawdy" that pretty much signalled Presley's return to rock 'n' roll.
The Comeback Special, as it was later called, opened the door to Presley's terrific Memphis records from 1969 and his renewed success in the '70s until his death in 1977.
The '68 Comeback Special (50th Anniversary Edition) collects all of the existing audio and video from the show plus rehearsals and sessions recorded with the Wrecking Crew.
The CD Track-listing is a previously noted by EIN - see below.
The book also features rare photos and memorabilia and full recording data
There is over 7.5 hours of footage across 2 newly mastered Blu-ray discs, overseen by Thom Zimny.

'50th Anniversary NBC Special Box-Set CD Details': Although still not officially announced by SONY the tracklists of the new 5CD boxset have been confirmed. The disappointment to many collectors is that the five CDs in this special re-release comprise of the 4 CDs from the SONY/BMG 2008 'The Complete '69 Comeback Special' plus CD2 'The Wrecking Crew Sessions' from the FTD 'ELVIS: Original Soundtrack Recording'.
These releases were top-notch releases when they first were released Mixed & Mastered by Vic Anesini / Sebastian Jeansson - but do we need to buy them again?
The draw-card to collectors is the 88 page booklet plus the upgraded BluRay video presentations - albeit a compromise as the original NBC Special was of course recorded as 525 NTSC standard definition TV.
The Sony release of 5-CD/2-BluRay boxset to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the 1968 TV Special is out November 2018.
- Definitive box set chronicles the pivotal NBC-TV special that helped Elvis Presley reclaim the title of "The King Of Rock and Roll"
- The original Special included spirited "sit-down" performances

with Elvis and original band members Scotty Moore and DJ Fontana plus then-new material, including the classic "If I Can Dream"

- 5CD / 2Blu-Ray box set offers all previously released audiovisual material from the special including rare outtakes, plus deluxe book with rare photos and a newly-compiled oral history of the making of the program

- BluRay Disc 1 - 229 mins

‘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?
