'TTWII Deluxe Set' at Dealers: Finally after the usual FTD delays the brand new 'TTWII Deluxe Set' has arrived at European Elvis shops and are being posted out to customers right now.
Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Elvis performing for the MGM cameras in Las Vegas this deluxe set is a 600 page double-volume book with EIGHT cds featuring the complete rehearsal recordings. Many of which have never been previously officially released.
The most expensive FTD set yet released, fans will be super excited about waiting for the mail-man.
If you want a preview Allan Tychsen in Denmark has posted a YouTube, "Unboxing FTD's That's The Way It Is 50th Anniv Collector's Edition Box Set"
The audio is in Danish, but you can see for yourself how gorgeous the set looks.
There is LOTS of text and plenty of great photos - but gee, those large white borders look like a waste of printing
space which could have featured bigger Elvis images. - EIN wonders how long it will take to get to Australia!
SEE BELOW FOR TRACKLISTING and details
(News, Source;YouTube/ElvisInfoNet) - Thanks Allan!

'From Elvis In Nashville' 'Funny How Time Slips Away': From the new RCA / Legacy Recordings forthcoming release of 'From Elvis In Nashville' another preview, this time a delightful 'Funny How Time Slips Away'.
Recorded live in RCA's Studio B in Nashville over the course of an epic five day/night run in June 1970 (with an additional session on September 22), Elvis' performances from those sessions formed the core of three of his most successful studio album releases from the 1970s: 'Elvis: That's the Way It Is', 'Elvis Country' and 'Love Letters from Elvis'.
Now, for the first time, the master recordings from the 1970 Studio B sessions may be enjoyed together as a single official Elvis album. On 'From Elvis In Nashville', Elvis' studio tracks are presented in pristine audio, newly mixed by acclaimed engineer Matt Ross-Spring (John Prine, etc) without the added overdubs or orchestration appearing on earlier releases - in other words how Elvis would sound if you were in the room with him.

Friday 14 August 2020
'Bruce Jackson, On The Road With Elvis' New FTD Release: FTD are publishing “Bruce Jackson: On the Road with Elvis” available with a 3CD set! An audio documentary hosted by Jack Mullins (singer/songwriter) plus a soundboard recording of the Sioux Falls 10-18-76, and Atlanta 12-30-76 shows.
Raised in Sydney, audio engineer Bruce Jackson dropped out of university course in 1968 to build stroboscopes, amplifiers and more for the emerging psychedelic concert culture. Little did he know that in just three years he'd be on the road managing Elvis Presley's sound and poised to change forever how live concert sound was presented. In six years with the Elvis Presley Show Bruce established a close professional and personal bond with Elvis who trusted him implicitly to deliver the best sound possible.
Bruce's inventions and technical advances were adopted by the entire live concert touring industry.
'I mixed and ran the sound for Elvis for six years until his death on August 16, 1977. I was 22 when I started working for him. It didn’t seem like a big deal
at the time, working strange hours and constantly on the road to the next city or town. I did hundreds and hundreds of shows with Elvis across mainland United States and Hawai'. - Bruce Jackson
The book delivers an intimate, engaging narrative of Bruce's extraordinary life, up close with the world's top performer.
After Elvis died, Elvis-fan Bruce Springsteen hired Bruce Jackson, saying 'I've got Elvis' guy...Elvis' man is working for me in the house'.
Years of work have gone into making this book a fitting tribute. Bruce's first-person narrative and contributions by friends and colleagues plus the eye-witness perspective of his brother Gary come together for an extraordinary insight. This is, incredibly, a new look at Elvis by someone who
worked with him in a professional relationship that evolved into a personal friendship. Elvis came to respect Bruce Jackson as much as Bruce respected Elvis Presley.
Go here to vimeo to check out the promo video! - Out late September.

'From Elvis In Nashville' New 4CD Set: RCA / Legacy Recordings is pleased to announce the forthcoming release of 'From Elvis In Nashville' a 4CD collection presenting the long-awaited definitive chronicle of Elvis Presley's mythic 1970 marathon sessions with the "Nashville Cats".

Get a mp3 taste of the Matt Ross-Spring remix of 'I Washed My Hands in Muddy Water' here.

A highlights package will be available in a 2LP 12" vinyl pressing.

Looking at the first album side we can see the tracklist
1 You Don't Have To Say You Love Me 2:30
2 Mary In The Morning Takes 3, 4 - 4:23
3 Stranger In The Crowd Take 5 - 1:46
4 How The Web Was Woven Take 1 - 3:25
5 Got My Mojo Working / Keep Your Hands Off Of It -  5:27

EIN notes the side runs less than 18 minutes
You Don't Have To Say You Love Me is the Undubbed Master, officially previously unreleased.
Stranger In The Crowd Take 5 is the rather short insubstantial version. (also on the FTD classic album) Odd to be featured on the first album side.

At the close of the 1960s, Elvis Presley, the atomic-powered singer of the 1950s, put his stamp on the rock revolution decade, reestablishing himself as a musical and cultural force to be reckoned with. His electrifying Elvis '68 Comeback special made television history and his long-awaited return to non-soundtrack recordings at Chip Moman's American Sound Studio in Memphis, January-February 1969 – yielded major chart hits including 'In The Ghetto', 'Don't Cry Daddy', 'Kentucky Rain' and 'Suspicious Minds' and well as a pair of acclaimed 1969 album releases, From Elvis In Memphis and 'Back In Memphis'.

From Elvis In Nashville serves as a mirror and companion to his earlier Memphis recordings, bringing fresh fire, exuberance, humor and emotional resonance to the Studio B sessions.
For his first recordings of the 1970s, Elvis revisited the blueprint that made his American Sound sessions so successful. Because he hated doing overdubs, he wanted to cut loose live in the studio with a band in sync with his sensibility. Freed from obligations to music publishers, Elvis was able to pick and record songs that were contemporary, relevant and meaningful to him, from covers – including his transcendent interpretation of 'Bridge Over Trouble Water' – to the epic material then powering his Las Vegas residencies and return to live performing.
If the American Sound recordings in Memphis opened the door for Elvis' return to the stage and top of the charts, his next recordings – the fabled 1970 Nashville Marathon Sessions – would lay the groundwork for another revolution in pop music. Under the direction of producer Felton Jarvis, Elvis joined forces with one of the most potent studio ensembles ever assembled to create an often underrated chapter in Presley's rich legacy. Working with the fabled "Nashville Cats" for his first album of 1970, Elvis Presley connected to a circle of contemporary musicians that included Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, George Harrison and others.
In June 1970, Elvis returned to RCA Studio B to create a new sound for a new decade. From 1958-1971, Elvis recorded more than 200 tracks at Studio B, beginning with five classic songs, including 'A Fool Such As I' before shipping off to Germany with the US Army. He recorded Elvis Is Back!, his first post-army album, at Studio B in March-April 1960 and many more throughout the sixties
For his 1970 Nashville sessions, Elvis was able to handpick his own repertoire and, delve into the rich variety of American music in his marrow, combining elements of bluegrass, honky tonk, Western swing and the rockabilly he'd virtually invented with contemporary pop, ballads and epic showstoppers. Bringing a fresh and vital new approach to pop and country music, Elvis' performances on From Elvis In Nashville presaged and encompassed emerging trends from countrypolitan and Americana to outlaw country.
These sessions are widely recognized as among Elvis' best because of the undeniable chemistry between Elvis and his astonishing studio band comprised of multi-instrumentalist Charlie McCoy (whose resume includes Bob Dylan's Highway 61 Revisited, Blonde On Blonde, plus work with Paul Simon, Tanya Tucker, Bob Seger, Willie Nelson), bassist Norbert Putnam (Roy Orbison, Linda Ronstadt, J. J. Cale, Tony Joe White, etc) and pianist David Briggs (Dean Martin, Joan Baez, B.B. King, Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton, Tony Joe White, George Harrison, among others).
Known colloquially as the "Nashville Cats" this finely-honed studio ensemble, like Elvis himself, connected the worlds of pop, rock and country music. For the June sessions, Elvis brought in his longtime on-stage guitarist James Burton; Eddie Hinton (lead guitar on Elvis' September session). Elvis plays acoustic guitar throughout the June sessions.
The five-day "marathon" sessions yielded a wide variety of material including a spirited rendition of Willie Nelson's 'Funny How Time Slips Away', the heartrending 'I've Lost You' and the powerful 'Bridge Over Troubled Water'. A wild, single-take version of 'Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On' was one of the highlights of the September 22 single day session.
The music Elvis created in his 1970 "marathon sessions", presented here without layers of overdubbing heard on the original releases, stands among Presley's best and has proven immensely influential. It established musical directions he pursued the rest of his career, predicted his late-in-life pop- and-country radio successes, and modeled sounds for countless country stars to come.
From Elvis In Nashville provides an intimate glimpse into the world of Elvis and the way he made music that lasts forever.
No tracklisting has yet been announced. The release date appears to be November, 2020.

Many of which have never been previously officially released. - EIN checks out The Good, The Bad - and the price!

 

Good News for collectors includes: All the rehearsals are complete and unedited - except CD8 - so yes we get the complete 'Stranger In My Own Hometown' with bad language. Mastering and mix is new and taken from the original tapes.
- Includes some previously unreleased material that has never been bootlegged
- August 4th unreleased 'I've Lost You' rehearsal has a run time of over 8 minutes
- August 4th unreleased extra verse of 'Bridge Over Troubled Water' is neat as it has Elvis saying at the end in a slightly frustrated but humorous tone to Charlie Hodge, "I'll continue the song, you don't sing lead and go on with the damn song."
- The books are definitely not just "photo books" as every rehearsal and live performance has one page devoted to listing the audio, original source and notes, and one page listing the footage, and further notes. A large section is devoted to the technical making of the special edition, plus all of the various video releases, plus a new introduction by Phil Gelormine.

Bad News for collectors includes:  CD8 the August 10, 1970 Stage Rehearsal is a cheap copy of the previous FTD with fake intros and a 'Polk Salad' edited out.
EIN cannot believe that any fan who is thinking of paying over $300 for this Deluxe TTWII set would not have already bought  FTD's 'Stage Rehearsal' release. Repeating it with the fake introductions and song edits beggars belief for this collector's Deluxe set. It is lazy and basically shows a low care-factor for fans who have faithfully bought all previous FTD releases. Especially when we know that the bootleg "Hang Loose" was not complete and FTD have withheld the full session from us. Shame.

Unreleased Material: If you only have the official releases then there will be a pile of surprises for you (see our list below)
If you are an Elvis collector and own the previous well-known bootlegs then the new tracks are only...
CD1 July 14 - Track 7, I’ve Lost You
CD6  August 4 - Track 2, I’ve Lost You  and 3. The Next Is Love
CD7 August 7 Track 9. Sweet Caroline and 11. Patch It Up

The Price: the highest retail price of any FTD so far.
Weighing 7kilos, ETH&HM in England are even refusing to sell it to fans outside of the UK.
Requiring such a high postage it is obvious that fans need to purchase it as close to the source (Denmark/ Europe) as possible to reduce extra freight costs.
It is available for Pre-order at various Elvis shops . . (PRICE UPDATE July 28)
In the UK ETM&HM (Now Dig This) are selling it for £180 (delivery included, but UK only)
In the UK Elvis Shop London are selling it for £200 (plus postage to be determined)
In Europe Elvis Matters are selling it for €220 (plus postage and also overseas) Note that they have increased their original postage price - fans beware, Australians and Canadians are being asked for a $40+ extra payment.
& The Flaming Star Fan Club in Denmark are selling it for NOK Kr2400 (= Euro226) + shipping.
The Belgium UEPS Fan Club are selling it for €199 + shipping, (that seems a good deal)
German 'Bear Family Records' are selling it for US$255 (€221) plus postage. They also send internationally.
Elvis Corner Netherlands are selling it for €290 includes World-Wide postage everywhere. Locally €210 & postage
In France Elvis My Happiness shop priced at €195.83 - check postage.
Elvis Australia are selling it for AU$500 (US$350) plus postage.
In the USA Graceland Shop are selling it for US$325 plus postage.
SO SHOP AROUND for deals and check the postage

New TTWII FTD 50th Anniv Deluxe Release: Finally it has been confirmed that the 2020 FTD deluxe release to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Elvis performing for the MGM cameras in Las Vegas will be a 600 page double-volume book with EIGHT cds featuring the complete rehearsal recordings. Many of which have never been previously officially released.

August is the suggested month of release. No price yet announced. Living overseas the weight will certainly make this an expensive purchase when you have to include postage.

 
The EU Public Domain laws mean that any ELVIS material RCA has owned for fifty years but never deemed worthy of release is then rightly moved to the "Public Domain".
ELVIS fans are not getting younger and there is material out there, such as the TTWII rehearsals that 50 years later should be available for any fan to buy.
This would be the reason that FTD are officially releasing all the TTWII rehearsal material - all 8 cds worth - before it gets into the hands of PD labels such as MRS or 'Elvis One'.
After all, the vast majority of this rehearsal material has been available on bootleg since Fort Baxter's stunning 'The Brightest Star on Sunset Boulevard' came out way back in 1998.

The state of play so far for the 8CDs to be released..
The complete rehearsal recordings:
MGM Studios, Culver City - July 14, 1970
- Bootleg: 'TTWII - The Complete Works DVD3'.
Officially: 8 songs out of 12 recorded; FTD 'The Way It Was' and TTWII Movie.
MGM Studios, Culver City - July 15, 1970
- Bootleg: 'Get Down & Get With It' / A Profile The King On Stage /  'TTWII - The Complete Works DVD3'
Officially: 14 songs out of 38 recorded: BMG 2000 'That's The Way It Is CD3', FTD 'The Way It Was', TTWII original movie, This Is Elvis movie.
RCA Studios, Hollywood - July 24, 1970
- Bootleg: The Brightest Star On Sunset Boulevard, (complete)
Officially: 10 songs out of 32 recorded, BMG 2000 'That's The Way It Is CD3', FTD 'The Way It Was'
MGM Studios, Culver City - July 29, 1970
- Bootleg: There's Always Me / The Cream Of Culver City / Plugged In & Geared Up / 'TTWII - The Complete Works DVD3' (complete)
Officially: 17 songs out of 24 recorded, Platinum, BMG 2000 'That's

The Way It Is CD3', FTD 'The Way It Was' / SONY Deluxe 2014 box-set 'That's The Way It Is'
Las Vegas Convention Center - August 4, 1970
- Bootleg: 'TTWII - The Complete Works DVD3' (complete)
Officially: Near complete,- BMG 2000 'That's The Way It Is CD3' / FTD 'One Night In Vegas' / 'That's The Way It Is' - Movie Special Edition
The International Hotel - August 7, 1970
- Bootleg: 'TTWII - The Complete Works DVD3' (complete)/ International Heatwave
Officially: 7 songs out of 14 recorded,   'That's The Way It Is' - Original movie and Special Edition
The International Hotel - August 10, 1970
- Bootleg: Hang Loose (complete tape)
Officially: FTD 'Stage Rehearsal' complete but with weird fake spliced intros: also two tracks on 'Elvis Aron Presley' boxset

Fans who don't own all the bootlegs can see that there are a massive number of tracks not officially released as yet - and we are also promised some brand new material including new rehearsals of 'I've Lost You'

'From Elvis In Nashville' New 4CD Set: EIN was hoping that the official announcement would have been out by now - but this is what we have so far.
"From Elvis In Nashville" is the new SONY major release, celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Elvis' "Nashville Marathon" sessions that took place in June 1970.
At these session Elvis would record classic material including I’ve Lost You, You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me, Patch It Up, Bridge Over Troubled Water, Stranger In The Crowd, Mary In The Morning, and Just Pretend. In September Elvis would return to Nashville to record more hits Rags To Riches and Where Did They Go Lord.
The sessions would go on to create two of Elvis' best ever albums 'Elvis Country' and 'That's The Way It Is'.
From Elvis In Nashville promises "Undubbed versions of all tracks" - perhaps all the Undubbed Masters, plenty of which have still never been officially released.
At the time all the Nashville tracks were heavily overdubbed and nowadays the raw studio versions often sound more contemporary. Hopefully, like 'Down In the Jungle Room', this 2020 release 'From Elvis In Nashville' will provide a fascinating and honest look at Elvis' creative side.
This set was originally slated for an August release (to fit in with the 2020 Elvis Week celebrations) but rumours are
that it may be delayed until later in 2020, possibly November.
More info when we get it. - Released back in 2002, FTD's The Nashville Marathon was one of their best

UPDATED- 'Elvis: St Louis & Spokane 1976' FTD In-Depth Review: 1976 is not an easy Elvis 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.
Released as a 2-CD 5” digi-pak, this new FTD set features Elvis at the Kiel Auditorium on March 22 1976 and The Coliseum on April 27 1976.
Both shows were "Closing Nights" of these short 1976 tours where Elvis would often go that little bit further for his loving fans.
Larrie Londin played drums with the TCB band on the March 1976 tour so it will be a treat for collectors to get an official release featuring 'A Different Beat' with Larrie Londin playing at St Louis on March 22, 1976.

Can there really be that much to say about these two concerts, well EIN's coolest reviewers have rustled up over 4000 words.. and check if there any surprises in store..
Go here as Elvis soundboard super-collector Geoffrey McDonnell & Piers Beagley check out this new set ....

'Elvis: Live in California' May 1974 FTD Review: The most recent live soundboard 5” double-digipack FTD release which this time focused on Elvis' short Tour of California which went from May 10 to May 13 1974. CD1 features a combination of May 10 San Bernardino Opening Show / Fresno May 12 show while the second CD features May 13 San Bernardino Closing Show.
Best of all, these shows are previously unreleased soundboards.
In 1974 Elvis added the new songs 'Help Me', 'Let Me Be There' and ‘Why Me Lord’ to his set-list plus the old SUN classic ‘Trying To Get To You’ while on this tour Elvis added 'Big Boss Man' which he would then keep performing through to 1977. With 'Polk Salad', 'Steamroller Blues', 'Suspicious Minds', 'I Can't Stop Loving You' and 'An American Trilogy' also in the mix, the set-list was a truly solid selection.
With a mix of fifties oldies, classics hits, new material and some nice surprises fans would have truly enjoyed these shows.
Elvis soundboard super-collector Geoffrey McDonnell & EIN's Piers Beagley have a close look at this new FTD release .....

New FTD Soundboard Delayed!: Hopefully it was coming out soon - but the new 1974 FTD soundboard has been delayed due to a misprint. It is of course San Bernardino not San Bernadino - whoops. (and no, EIN did not spot the typo!)
'Elvis In California' Double-soundboard. As part of the ongoing live on tour series, FTD is pleased to announce the release of 'Elvis In California'. Released as a 2-CD 5” digi-pak, this set features Elvis touring during May 1974.
Elvis' 10th tour was short, five concerts in California over four days the most famous being his two 'Forum of Inglewood' concerts on May 11, 1974. (As released on FTD 'Live in LA')
Elvis was in good form.  The San Bernardino local review included, "Above all Elvis Presley knows what the faithful want and he bowls them over with his style. That's why he was a sellout at the Swing last night, will be on Monday night when he returns, and sells out wherever he performs.
"I'm a cement mixer, baby," he snarls at the screamers, "a churning urn of burning funk." Believe it."
The shows, taken from the original soundboard tapes, feature unreleased concerts from Selland Arena, Fresno (May 12) and Swing Auditorium, San Bernardino (May 10 & 13).

That's why he was a sellout at the Swing last night, will be on Monday night when he returns, and sells out wherever he performs.
"I'm a cement mixer, baby," he snarls at the screamers, "a churning urn of burning funk." Believe it."

'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

'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?
EIN's Piers Beagley investigates this massive set, discovers all the Previously Unreleased Delights - and wonders if 33 minutes of Guadalajara might be too much for some...
A FTD Deluxe set deserves a proper review and EIN gives you 4000 words plus to see if you really need to add this limited release to your collection!
