THE KING STRIKES BACK!

The Audionics label is proud to come up with a new, comprehensive 10CD project, dedicated to Elvis’ legendary Las Vegas Summer ’74 season. It is called „THE KING STRIKES BACK!“ and for the first time ever, all rehearsal and live soundboard recordings are presented in best possible sound quality and in one box!
As you know, these recordings were released through the years by various bootleg labels and by the official collectors FTD label, too. Nevertheless, many of these original releases are hard to find nowadays, including several already deleted FTD CDs! For some of these recordings we have used audio tapes (master cassettes) as a source, rather than existing CD releases. We have spent dozens of hours in studio, to restore and enhance them. As usual, every recording was treated individually and restored from scratch, using today's advanced technology to achieve the best possible sound quality for your optimal listening pleasure.
Each disc is placed in individually designed cardboard sleeve and there is a 16-page booklet, full of high quality August/September 1974 photos (including several rare ones) and reproductions of fan reviews, published in the hard-to-find Rex Martin “Elvis News Service Weekly” magazine, back in 1974. These reviews are special, because they were published shortly after the concerts and those memories are immediate and fresh.

This is the first-ever Audionics comprehensive box. It’s a special set which deserves a place in any serious Elvis collection!

Audionics is planning new CD releases in 2018, and additionally, this label will be releasing several special vinyl projects! So stay tuned!

3 new CD releases from Straight Arrow out soon!

Stormy Weather Ahead

Straight Arrow is pleased to bring you a new double CD dedicated to Elvis' August/ September '74 season. This recording was taken directly from a recently found new source, a 1st generation copy of an original audience-recorded mastertape, never before in circulation! This fascinating, previously unreleased concert was never before available in such excellent sound quality!

The penultimate show in Elvis' August/September '74 season was a memorable occasion, especially for British and European fans in attendance. Certain issues in Elvis' personal life influenced what took place on stage at that Labor Day performance.

The set list included several songs unique to this season: "It's Midnight", "Big Boss Man" and "If You Talk In Your Sleep", the latter with a karate demo midway. His song selection demonstrated his expertise in a great variety of musical genres: the sexy 'torch' styling of "Fever"; the sing-a-long "The Wonder Of You"; the poignancy of "You Gave Me A Mountain"; and the feel-good "If You Love Me Let Me Know" and "Let Me Be There". Most of all, perhaps, Elvis touched first base musically with the stirring "How Great Thou Art".

In between songs, he related stories ranging from the amusing to serious topics - the circumstances surrounding his divorce and the overblown stories in the movie magazines. Along the way, Elvis' emotions ranged from undisguised anger (the drug stories) to tenderness - introducing Priscilla and their six-year old daughter Lisa Marie. Usually a private person, it was the presence of his ex-wife that prompted Elvis to speak about his divorce, while making it clear that he and Priscilla were still close.

The liner notes are written by an English fan, who was there. This new release will be presented in a beautiful 4-panel double digipak that includes rare photos taken in Las Vegas in August/September 1974. It’s a new STRAIGHT ARROW so you know what to expect!

Breakdown In Baltimore
40 Years After Vol. 3

The second STRAIGHT ARROW release is called “BREAKDOWN IN BALTIMORE”. It is a new double CD dedicated to Elvis' May '77 tour. This recording was taken directly from a recently found original audience recorded mastertape, taped by Elvis fan Linda from Washington.

The Baltimore, May 29th, 1977 show was first released in 1994, on the poor sounding, incomplete CD ”SEND ME THE LIGHT… I NEED IT BAD!” In 2011, it was released again in better sound on the 2CD-set ”BALTIMORE NIGHTFALL”. Now STRAIGHT ARROW is coming with the ultimate release of this historic night. This concert was never before available in such good sound quality!

When The King made his last visit to Baltimore 40 years ago, no one knew he would be dead less than three months later. But many suspected that something was wrong.

The Elvis Presley who took to the stage at the Civic Center on May 29, 1977, was not the Elvis most of his fans knew. Presley was no longer the sexy, virile, electric presence that revolutionized both the recording industry and live performing in his heyday. Still, his voice and charisma were present.

As usual, Elvis opened the show with “See See Rider,” kicking off a set that included many of the classics, including “That’s All Right”, “Are You Lonesome Tonight,” “Jailhouse Rock,” “Hound Dog,” a rare attempt at “The Wonder of You” and “It’s Now or Never.” It was reported that Elvis left the stage for 30 minutes, actually it was barely 20 minutes and after his return, Elvis performed knock-out versions of “Help Me”, “Hurt” and THE SONG of the evening: a fantastic version of “Unchained Melody”.

The liner notes are taken from recent article, published on Aug. 10th, 2017 in the Baltimore Sun. This new release will be presented in a beautiful 4-panel double digipak that includes rare photos taken in Baltimore. Another essential SA release, providing a fresh insight into what must have been a difficult night for Elvis. Despite obvious health issues, Elvis does his best to ‘deliver the goods’ to the fans, and especially the final part of the concert is both moving and heart-warming… He must have felt terrible, but still he pulled out all the stops to be Elvis Presley for his audience. A must, and a unique insight into the man’s will-power and love for his fans.

Rockin' And Lovin' In Las Vegas

Finally, the third and last 2017 Straight Arrow release is a single CD with the previously unreleased August 17, 1972 Las Vegas Dinner show. It was taken from a 1st generation copy of an original audience recorded cassette, made back in the 70s by English super-fan and collector Rex Martin. Once again the sound quality is great! Rex taped many shows and usually, his recordings were of very good sound quality. He also filmed portions of shows with 8mm camera. From his memories: “17th August Dinner and Midnight shows - I went in with a couple of UK friends. After also tipping the waiter $30 more, we got seated right down on the front tables next to the stage. I taped the shows from August 17th to the 22nd and even filmed parts of the concerts.”

The August 17th Dinner show was another great performance by Elvis. Elvis performs a solid and very entertaining shows. His vocals are outstanding. The liner notes are taken from recent Rex Martin August 1972 personal notes. This new release will be presented in a beautiful 3-panel digipak that includes rare photos taken in Las Vegas in August/September 1972. If you liked Straight Arrows previous 1972 releases - then brace yourself, because this is another keeper!

Still A Legend

The MxF label will release soon its second special product dedicated to 1976, called “Still A Legend '' featuring both the unreleased shows performed from Elvis in Bloomington IN University of Indiana May 27, 1976, and in Providence RI Civic Center June 26, 1976, ES.

The new product respects the previous one present Elvis moving toward the third and fourth tour of the year. Carrying the weight of his problems but still unbelievable concentrate in his music as a final product to delivery to his fans... through the tape, and maybe thanks to its limitation is possible to feel the incredible enthusiasm of the crowd ... For sure Elvis is still a legend.

In the Bloomington show, Although Elvis was not looking good and In spite, the lack of renewal, in the repertoire are still included some strong numbers to make the concerts of a very good quality. Surprisingly in some of the more demanding artistically songs, Elvis builds his show, He is still able to delivery in the right way, songs like You Gave a Mountain, America the Beautiful, Burning Love, Polk Salad Annie and last single Hurt. Without a doubt, this is the focus of the show and the audience appreciated that, making the concert atmosphere still incredible experience….

Moving to Providence we are instead in the middle of the fourth 1976 tour , the show is shorter respect to the previous one ( Elvis performed even an afternoon show on the same day), also the repertoire is very basic, some of the rockers like Burning Love and Polk Salad Annie have been dropped..but the show remains surprisingly well performed in all the songs…and the participation of the public is incredible..Elvis is still a legend!!

The sound is very good for an ambient recordings, considering that this kind of recording is coming from a big hall no the intimate Las Vegas showroom… We have on our hands the original mono tapes of extremely good quality enabling us to carry out a simple re-mastering work, concentrating on the reduction of noise trying to achieve a more clear sound balancing the channel and put at the right speed the tape. The result a pretty dynamic tapes with a great definition of the background music and for sure you can live the atmosphere of a Elvis’ concert in the seventy.

This is the fourth special Product for this label, this new double set will be housed in a deluxe FOUR PANELS LONG DIGIPACK, containing a 6 pages of booklet with focus and details on the TOUR shows, including a collection of live photographs, newspapers clips plus a high quality glossy 135 gram paper poster of 50x26 cm size + an high glossy quality paper art card ( 25x13 cm).

Standing In The Rain

Ampex is proud to present their latest release ''Standing In The Rain'' as recorded live at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, NY on June 24 1973 at 3 P.M
On this day, Elvis is performing his last show in a series of four sold-out concerts at this venue, much like he did just over a year earlier 32 miles away in Manhattan at Madison Square Garden. 
The audience was primed beyond measure as Elvis had not performed in the New York-tri state area since the previous year.
The setlists at these shows were similar to the recently aired ''Aloha From Hawaii'' TV Special, with several variations, most notably a classic rock 'n roll medley, How Great Thou Art, and I'm Leavin'. 
This show was previously released on the MxF title ''Uniondale Hysteria, Final Day'' from a much inferior and different tape. 
We at Ampex found a brand new source, the sound of this recording replicates exactly what the fans in the audience heard that night.
It was recorded on high quality BASF tape,and has tremendous dynamic range considering the limitations of amateur equipment in those days.

It captures the sound of Elvis's show that evening in clear and brilliant sound... and we advise you to play this loud and proud, and you will feel like you are right there in attendance.
This release is mastered directly from the original first generation audience recorded cassette,which has been carefully preserved in its vintage hard plastic case for 40 years. The CD will also feature a 16 page booklet, including rare photos of Elvis in Uniondale, and liner notes! Ask your dealer for samples!

02. I Got A Woman / Amen

04. Steamroller Blues

A Sensational Opening Night - From Japan With Love Vol. 4

Expected soon from the E. P. Collector label is another exciting new release.
Our next CD is titled "A Sensational Opening Night" (label E. P. Collector, catalogue number EPC 2017-13)
Recorded live from the audience in Las Vegas, NV, August 4th, 1972, Opening show, this CD is subtitled "From Japan With Love Vol. 4" because it was recorded by a member of a Japanese fan club.

The Las Vegas, August 4th, 1972 Opening Night was first released in 2003 on the CDs „No Fooling Around“ and „Another Opening Night“. Those CDs were taken from a different, incomplete source tape. Our new recording is great sounding and, for the first time, 100% complete.

Elvis started his 7th season in Las Vegas with a fairly dynamic opening night. It was reported that Elvis was suffering from a headache, and he kept the opening show short with minimal in-between songs talk. He did not perform his usual showstopper „Suspicious Minds“, but he was on stage for 50 minutes, singing his heart out with a passion and energy not seen since August 1970. Compared to the previous Vegas season and the following tour in April, Elvis was in great physical shape, tanned, slim and full of energy. He was in a much better mental shape too, because his new girlfriend, model Linda Thompson accompanied him for the whole first week of this engagement. This concert is a good example of Elvis at his best, mixing rock’n’roll with ballads and blues, singing old and new songs, and looking great.

This concert is taken from a recently found first generation copy of original audience recorded cassette tape. You may ask your supplier for samples.
This CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipak with great collection of quality images taken in August 1972, including REAL Aug. 4th, Opening night photos!
If you have enjoyed our other August 1972 releases such as "Rock & Soul… And Some Mighty Fine Rock’n’Roll" and "Everybody Let’s Rock", then you are sure to enjoy our latest release.
As with all our releases, this CD is a labour of love and we hope you enjoy it. We are planning another CD taken from those "Japanese" tapes. So stay tuned!

A Song For Sheila

Expected soon from the E. P. Collector label is another exciting new release.
Our next CD is titled "A Song For Sheila" (label E. P. Collector, catalogue number EPC 2017-14)

Elvis Presley opened his 11th Las Vegas season on August 19th, and he performed a total of 27 shows, closing on September 2nd. Once again, Elvis revisited his live repertoire based on previous seasons and he included several tracks from the December ’73 recording sessions, and he also added songs like "Softly As I Leave You” and „If You Love Me (Let Me Know)“. Elvis' new love, the beautiful Sheila Ryan was present and Elvis sang the rarely performed „Early Morning Rain“ for her. He sings the complete song.

The Las Vegas, August 29th, 1974 Dinner show is previously unreleased except for 7 songs released from a soundboard source by the FTD label („It’s Midnight“ CD). This concert is taken from an early generation copy of an original audience recorded cassette tape. As usual, you may ask your supplier for samples.

Spliced takes: "Still in Memphis"

Fans know what to expect with this series, some highlights are mentioned here, but in fact the whole cd is one big highlight! This one won't leave your player before Christmas! (promise!)
WAY DOWN - Starts of with the band fooling around, Elvis joins the fun and it runs straight into the song!
WEARIN' THAT LOVED ON LOOK - Over six (!!) splices make a very different version, with extra verses and piano solo.
I'M MOVIN' ON - This splice includes ALL verses done by Elvis , and runs longer then other versions. Same goes for HEY JUDE, which also sound very fresh.
SHE THINKS I STILL CARE - One of THE highlights probably, Here Elvis start of with the slower version, James takes over and off they go into the faster version, this works very good, and maybe should have been released like this!
GOOD TIME CHARLIE'S LOST HIS MIND - The title was renamed for fun, and that's what we are getting here, a nice complete take with lots of fooling around.
SUSPICIOUS MINDS - What's a "Memphis" release without this classic, because some rare parts are used, this one again sound very different to previous releases outtakes.
DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM - Just listen to the "harmony" ending, very nice to hear two different sounding Elvis voices.

Everybody Let's Rock - From Japan With Love Vol. 3

Expected soon from the E. P. Collector label is another exciting new release.
Our next CD is titled "Everybody Let's Rock" (label E. P. Collector, catalogue number EPC 2017-11)
Recorded live from the audience in Las Vegas, NV, August 5th, 1972, D/S and M/S, this 2CD-set is subtitled "From Japan With Love Vol. 3" because it was recorded by a member of a Japanese fan club.
The Las Vegas, August 5th, 1972 Dinner show was first released in 2008 on the CD "Directly From The 1972 Elvis Summer Festival". This earlier CD was taken from different, inferior source tape. Our new recording is of much better sound quality. The Las Vegas, August 5th, 1972 Midnight show is previously unreleased.

There is no need to discuss the fact that ALL shows from August/September 1972 are excellent! Natural highlights are especially ballads like "What Now My Love", ''An American Trilogy", "My Way" or "For The Good Times" and rock’n’rolls like „A Big Hunk O’Love” or "Johnny B. Goode" One song from Midnight show stands out: a cool, one-off of "Jailhouse Rock"! Needless to say that this is a rarity for 1972, and what a great version it is too - it easily beats all other 70's versions.

Both concerts are taken from a recently found first generation copies of original audience recorded cassette tapes. They were never before available in listenable sound, until now! You may ask your supplier for samples.

This CD is packaged in a nicely designed double digipak with great collection of quality images taken in August 1972.
If you enjoyed some of our other releases such as "Rock & Soul… And Some Mighty Fine Rock’n’Roll" and "The Make The World Go Away", then you sure to enjoy our latest release.
As with all our releases, this CD is a labour of love and hope you enjoy it. We are planning another CD taken from those "Japanese" tapes. So stay tuned!

Spliced Takes - Nashville Revisited

Another "must have" release in this great series, this time even more edits/splices were done to make an exceptional album, where tracks sound so much different then what is out there, no fake overdubs , but some tracks have been overdubed, using snippets from the actual "recording sessions"
DEVIL IN DISGUISE for example does not fade out, but has a great new ending, including TWO guitar solos.
GOLD IN THE MOUNTAINS has been overdubbed with a more fuller drumbeat on some parts, and has been extended.
LIKE A BABY "you do the intro" Elvis said during the session, but here, we have Elvis himself playing it, and on the end, the guitar has been included once more.
DIRTY, DIRTY FEELING sounds so much different since lots of parts from the session have been included, and it's Elvis who does the ending "Gone..." instead of Ray Walker.
STRANGER IN THE CROWD , no complete outtake of this song excists, here we get an extended "rehearsal" version, which sound wonderful
IT AIN'T NO BIG THING again our man does the intro, and a very different version is made.
I'LL NEVER KNOW here outtakes are combined with the master overdubs.
We could go on, but you know what to do... PRE ORDER this baby now, and enjoy it yourself!!
On the first "Nashville" most tracks were from the sixties. Here we get a good portion of seventies selections, and well as a fifties track... all recorded in Nashville....

Sun 78 RPM

With the 40th Anniversary of Elvis’ passing comes a special release. Record players sold today are increasingly adding the 78RPM speed to the norm and these 5 magnificent Sun 10” (inch) replica singles play at 78RPM. This is the first time since Elvis Sun replicas produced in the 1970’s, that have been made to play the original 78RPM speed. Since then some were only made at 45rpm.
Each of the 5 Sun replicas have the original etched numbers included with the appropriate song sides and are by far the most original Sun replicas made. All the labels are perfect (as the original) in size, accuracy and color. All the singles come in the same type sleeves as sold with the original releases. The sound quality is excellent with the original Sun sound recordings (including That’s All Right) and is pressed on heavy stock vinyl.
This is a strictly low limited number release and an extra low limited number release of a CRYSTAL-CLEAR version in a clear polybag. A first time ever in this version for any Elvis Sun single replica produced.

Country Memories

This great country CD, housed in 6 panel digipack, is based on the 1978 RCA vinyl album.

This CD contains rare alternate and live versions of all 20 original tracks.

Hot Summer in 1973

The forthcoming release from the "SR" label is titled "Hot Summer in 1973 " and will feature the unreleased show from Las Vegas August 19, 1973 DS.

This recording is taken directly from a first generation of original tape. The afternoon show is previously unreleased show.

August 1973, Elvis Is back for his last summer season..The 1973 was begun in the better way, with the Aloha special at least commercial talking…But the things turned immediately toward the wrong direction..the man had too weight to bear in his human shoulders... But as always for Elvis the music keeps his mind alive and overall active..so the best moments of our man is when He is on the stage..The August 1973 is no exception..

The August 19 present Elvis in positive mood , the show is solid and well performed...Elvis deliveries some killer version of My Boy and You Gave Me a Mountain, keeping steady part of the show the two classic Suspicious Minds and An American Trilogy and delighting the audience with the with the two early rocker Mystery Train/Tiger Man & Trouble.

Talking about the show , the show is solid and well performed no too long in accord with the classic Las Vegas show, we have 46 minutes only, but Elvis worked hard performing 19 songs, classic representation of his best repertoire of Vegas.. Talking of highlight of the show, we can say is hard however is undeniable that Elvis’ soul lives now in the power ballad like You Gave a Mountain or My Boy, surely they are the best moment of the show…...

This recording come from an early generation copy of the master tape, the sound quality is very good. The sound was restored in matter to remove the background noise and preserving Elvis’ voice and trying to achieve best possible results. We have spent hours in the studio over the digital restoration of the sound, to give you the chance to hear it with pleasure.

This new CD will come with the classic deluxe Digipack four panels (12x12 cm), containing a collection of live photographs from the actual Season . All the copies will come hand numbered and individually sealed and Please remember!! This is a LIMITED HAND NUMBERED 400 COPIES!!!!!!

Two New Touchdown releases

Once again after a longer break Touchdown comes back with two new releases! The first one is „Beyond All Bounds“ which includes recordings from the Seattle concerts on April 29, 1973. The afternoon show is well known, but never sounded better than this time. The recording was carefully remastered and it now sounds clearer and much better balanced than before. Up on that we offer you six songs from the evening show from the same day in even better audience quality than the complete show from the afternoon. It’s a real treat to listen to the songs in this quality.

ON FIRE IN FLORIDA

Straight Arrow is pleased to bring you a new 2 CD dedicated to Elvis' February ’77 tour. The Hollywood, February 12th, 1977 show was first released in 1994, 23 years have passed since then and now is the right time for a proper re-release. Straight Arrow went back to the original cassette and restored it from scratch. The West Palm Beach, February 13th, 1977 show was previously released from an incomplete soundboard source.

Our COMPLETE recording has been taken directly from a previously unreleased original audience-recorded mastertape. Both shows were recorded by the same person.
In spite of Elvis’ unhealthy look especially at the beginning of tour, his concerts were solid and playlists were variable, incl. some rarely performed songs, actually, it was best tour of 1977.
As usual, this new release will be presented in a beautiful 4-panel double digipak that includes photos taken in Hollywood and West Palm Beach and newspaper reviews of both concerts. If you liked our release “Got Me Workin’ Boss Man – 40 Years After Vol. 1” (SA/SP 2016-44-02), we'll bet that you will also love 40 Years After Vol. 2.
As usual - it’s new STRAIGHT ARROW so you know what to expect!

Packing the Arena Out Now

The MxF label third special product called “Packing the Arena'' is out now, and featuring both the shows performed from Elvis in Long Beach CA, Long Beach Arena on April 25, 1976. The 2.30 PM show is previously unreleased, while the 8.30 PM show has been previously released on CD ("California Wave” on Memory Records in 2009). However here is presented in very improved audio-quality so, We believe it is the right time for a proper re-release. After the successful Las Vegas Hilton comeback in December 1975, in spite a little bit overweight but with strong spirit, Elvis is ready to face his long tour activities of 1976 ….... The first tour started in the middle of March , a passable tour but nothing more..the man obviously is afflicted from a lot of problems …personal relationship, recording session and overall self-attitude destructive to life …. everything seems to go wrong .

This second tour confirmed the impression from the March concerts: Elvis was not looking after himself physically and artistically he was at a dead end. In spite the lack of renewal, in the repertoire are still included some strong numbers to make the concerts of a very good quality. In some of the more demanding artistically songs, Elvis builds his show, He is still able to find LIFE singing songs like You Gave a Mountain, America the Beautiful, How Great Thou art and last single Hurt. Without doubt this is the focus of the show and the audience appreciated that, making the concert atmosphere still incredible experience….

Talking about the concerts, both are solid with a few little variation of tracking list..in the evening one, Elvis performs three more songs : The life Anthem ; My Way, the religious ; Help Me and the fifty Rocker ; Blue Suede Shoes. Beside the focus of the show He still able to delivery in decent way, some of his classic rockers, Like Polk Salad Annie, Trying to Get To You and surprisingly in both the shows his best rocker in the seventies; Burning Love.

The sound is very good for an ambient recordings, considering that this kind of recording is coming from a big hall no the intimate Las Vegas showroom… We have on our hands the original mono tapes of extremely good quality enabling us to carry out a simple re-mastering work, concentrating on the reduction of noise trying to achieve a more clear sound balancing the channel and put at the right speed the tape. The result a pretty dynamic tapes with a great definition of the background music and for sure you can live the atmosphere of a Elvis’ concert in the seventy.

This is the third special Product for this label, this new double set will be housed in a deluxe LARGE FOUR PANELS DIGIPACK (20 cm) , containing a 12 pages of booklet with focus and details on the TOUR shows, including a collection of live photographs, newspapers clips and memorabilia plus a high quality glossy 135 gram paper poster of 40x40 cm size + an high glossy quality paper art card ( 20x20 cm).

In matter to have a special collector item, the 400 copies will be presented with four different sleeves VARIATION, the same for the poster too.

Hilton Showroom vol. 7

AudiRec proudly presents: ELVIS – HILTON SHOWROOM VOLUME 7 – a brandnew CD which will be released at the end of this month (May).

Welcome to Volume 7 of our AudiRec “Las Vegas Series” which concentrates on Elvis´ concerts in Sin City. This time we have chosen to release the Dinner Show from February 17, 1972 and it is the first time that this show is available on a “real” cd. Since there aren´t too many “listenable” recordings from this Las Vegas season made by fans who were there in the audience, bringing their own, non-professional recording equipment, it is more than likely good to have another one that is pretty good in sound!

In his 6th Hilton appearance Elvis received quite some rave reviews, especially in comparison to some critics and fans comments which did not sound too enthusiastic when talking about the “King´s” August 71 engagement in Las Vegas. Elvis did a total of 57 shows, starting on January 26 and ending on February 23. RCA was there to do some live recording and because of that and some other reasons Elvis changed his setlist significantly to the benefit of some “big” and “dramatic” ballads.

“Variety” told his readers on February 9, 1972 about Elvis in Vegas: “This time out is the best one yet for Presley. His format is taut, he pays attention to his songs and audience, the karate exercises are quite vigorous and his ringside kissing technique is like a dozen midway attractions rolled into one. He has almost ceased the pelvic sex symbolism, retaining a wee bit of the guitar’s phallic thrust near the top of his vocalistics … Wearing a white cape, orange scarf and white jumpsuit studded with brass buttons and open nearly to his mid-section, he comes on ready and belting strong. Par for his course is about 20 tunes, big, bigger, biggest, either in his own or the general pop catalog. If he keeps up his opening pace there will be no need for repeat of grumbles, heard at the close of his August 1971 month, that Presley was sliding by, generally goofing off and otherwise acting bored with the whole thing.”

Please be aware that this new release is limited to 300 copies only! Be sure to get your copy if you are interested. Once you have it in your hands, we hope your spare time will allow you to sit back, put your headphones on, flip through the accompanied 16-page booklet and listen to the Dinner Show from February 17, 1972. It´s Las Vegas! It´s the Hilton Hotel Showroom! It´s ELVIS! Enjoy!

A Brand New Cadillac, Honey!

Straight Arrow is pleased to bring you a new double CD dedicated to Elvis' April ’76 tour. It was short but very good tour, with Tony Brown and Ronnie Tutt replacing Shane Kiester on piano and Larrie Londin on drums.
The Long Beach, April 25th, 1976 afternoon show is previously unreleased. The Seattle, April 26th, 1976 show was first released by Millbranch Music („THE BICENTENNIAL KING VOL. 2“, 2010) from a rather bad, flat sounding tape source.
Straight Arrow was fortunate enough to obtain recently recovered 1st generation copies of the original audience-recorded cassettess, which were not in circulation previously. Both shows were recorded by the same person. These enjoyable concerts were never before available in good sound quality… until now! Ask your dealer for sound samples.
As usual, this new release will be presented in a beautiful 4-panel digipak that includes photos taken in Long Beach (2:30 pm) and Seattle and newspaper reviews of both concerts. Again - it’s new STRAIGHT ARROW so you know what to expect!

Note: „A BRAND NEW CADILLAC, HONEY!“ 2CD-set will be released together with „GOT ME WORKIN’ BOSS MAN“ single CD.

Got Me Workin' Boss Man - 40 Years After Vol. 1

Straight Arrow is pleased to bring you a new CD dedicated to Elvis' May ’77 tour. The Macon, June 1st, 1977 show is previously unreleased. This recording was taken directly from a recently found 1st generation copy of an audience-recorded mastertape. This historic concert was never before available in decent sound quality… until now! Ask your dealer for sound samples. Compared with an average show in Baton Rouge, May 31st, Macon concert is surprisingly good. ”Fairytale”, ”My Way” and ”And I Love You So” are performed really well but one highlight stands out, rocking performance of „Big Boss Man“ at the end of show. As usual, this new release will be presented in a beautiful 3-panel digipak that includes photos taken in Macon and a newspaper review. If you liked our other May 1977 release “Too Late For Goodbyes” (SA/SP 2016-42-02), we'll bet that you will also love this one. It’s new STRAIGHT ARROW so you know what to expect!

Packing the Arena

The MxF label will release soon its third special product called “Packing the Arena'' featuring both the shows performed from Elvis in Long Beach CA, Long Beach Arena on April 25, 1976. The 2.30 PM show is previously unreleased, while the 8.30 PM show has been previously released on CD ("California Wave” on Memory Records in 2009). However here is presented in very improved audio-quality so, We believe it is the right time for a proper re-release. After the successful Las Vegas Hilton comeback in December 1975, in spite a little bit overweight but with strong spirit, Elvis is ready to face his long tour activities of 1976 ….... The first tour started in the middle of March , a passable tour but nothing more..the man obviously is afflicted from a lot of problems …personal relationship, recording session and overall self-attitude destructive to life …. everything seems to go wrong .

This second tour confirmed the impression from the March concerts: Elvis was not looking after himself physically and artistically he was at a dead end. In spite the lack of renewal, in the repertoire are still included some strong numbers to make the concerts of a very good quality. In some of the more demanding artistically songs, Elvis builds his show, He is still able to find LIFE singing songs like You Gave a Mountain, America the Beautiful, How Great Thou art and last single Hurt. Without doubt this is the focus of the show and the audience appreciated that, making the concert atmosphere still incredible experience….

Talking about the concerts, both are solid with a few little variation of tracking list..in the evening one, Elvis performs three more songs : The life Anthem ; My Way, the religious ; Help Me and the fifty Rocker ; Blue Suede Shoes. Beside the focus of the show He still able to delivery in decent way, some of his classic rockers, Like Polk Salad Annie, Trying to Get To You and surprisingly in both the shows his best rocker in the seventies; Burning Love.

The sound is very good for an ambient recordings, considering that this kind of recording is coming from a big hall no the intimate Las Vegas showroom… We have on our hands the original mono tapes of extremely good quality enabling us to carry out a simple re-mastering work, concentrating on the reduction of noise trying to achieve a more clear sound balancing the channel and put at the right speed the tape. The result a pretty dynamic tapes with a great definition of the background music and for sure you can live the atmosphere of a Elvis’ concert in the seventy.

This is the third special Product for this label, this new double set will be housed in a deluxe LARGE FOUR PANELS DIGIPACK (20 cm) , containing a 12 pages of booklet with focus and details on the TOUR shows, including a collection of live photographs, newspapers clips and memorabilia plus a high quality glossy 135 gram paper poster of 40x40 cm size + an high glossy quality paper art card ( 20x20 cm).

In matter to have a special collector item, the 400 copies will be presented with four different sleeves VARIATION, the same for the poster too.

Wild In Wichita!

Expected soon from the E. P. Collector label is another fine release, our 10th - and 1st one for 2017.

This new CD is titled "Wild In Wichita!“ (label E. P. Collector, catalogue number EPC 2017-10). It was recorded live from the audience in Wichita, Kansas, on December 27th, 1976.

This is a previously unreleased show, taken from a recently found first generation copy of an original audience recorded master cassette tape. This show was recorded by an American woman and her recording was never in circulation. Until now, the Wichita show was never available in an acceptable sound. The only existing tape was of absolutely horrible quality, perhaps the worst audience recording ever. The EPE label looked for a better tape and succeeded! Although still not great quality, it is a very listenable recording of this wonderful December ’76 tour-opening show!

To prevent possible speculations: many years ago, the official „Follow That Dream“ label reportedly planned a possible soundboard release of the Wichita ’76 show. Unfortunately, this info was based on a mislabeled tape in the FTD vaults. There are no indications that a soundboard recording of this show exists.

Just as all other December '76 tour shows, this concert is excellent! Elvis appeared on stage with the same joy and energy as in Pittsburgh on New Year's Eve. Highlights are "Fairytale", "And I Love You So", a full version of "Early Mornin' Rain", an unbeatable performance of "How Great Thou Art", and "Hurt". One unique performance stands out. It was the very first time that Elvis performed "Unchained Melody", accompanying himself on piano. This premier performance is tentative in parts but that's part of the magic. A great Presley moment!

This CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipak accompanied with a 16-page booklet, filled with a.o. a local newspaper concert review, and special memories by the American fan who taped the show. We are happy that she was willing to share her unique, never before published snapshots, too! All images used for this project were taken in Wichita, KS, December 27, 1976.

Tracklist:

Pre-program: 01. The Fifth Of Beethoven (disco version, by Joe Guercio orchestra) - 02. Gone At Last (by The Stamps) - 03. Operator (by The Stamps). Elvis Presley show: 04.

Spliced takes - Hollywood Revisited

After last year's releases, fans asked for more and now CMT is proud to present their latest release which promises to be another winner! Again the STAR team has done all the edits on this album, and they did an even better job , with lots of excellent edits, and surprises. Unlike other “import” labels, they truly were able to produce an album using many incomplete takes , to create beautiful new tracks. Their professional edits will blow you away, and will make you believe these are unreleased takes.

We're back in Hollywood for some incredible new splices ! We start off with a "too fast" version of "Flaming Star", just for fun the "End Title" at the end of the cd also has been done in a "too fast" edit, but it sounds pretty good!
One of THE highlights is probably "Adam and Evil" which has a totally new "jungle beat" opening, no new instruments were used, butt purely rough studio snippets to complete an amazing new take out of 5 takes, with new fade out ending! "G.I. Blues" was re-made out of lots of takes, and sounds very new to your ears! And what to think of the "break up" version of "Yoga is As Yoga Does" , lots of funny segments are included in this complete new track. "Moonlight Swim" has the instrumental break on the end, which also sounds very refreshing! "It Won't Be Long" has a longer "bluesy" intro, and was extended for listening pleasure

We could go on, but the best thing to do is PRE-ORDER now, and enjoy all of the 30 tracks by yourself! Elvis fans have been spoiled over the years, and they all know.. “the end is near” almost every complete take available has been released, so this is as close as you can get for a “New” album!
The set comes in a “Deluxe Digipack” with beautiful artwork, and is strictly limited to 500 copies! Pre-order your set now, this will be sold out soon!
Tracks:
Flaming Star - Alternate Master (fast) A Cane And A High Starched Collar - Alternate Master * Beyond the Bend - Spliced take 1,2 Shopping Around - Spliced take 6,7,9,10 Adam and Evil - Spliced take 3,5,9,10,16 Amazing new opening jungle version It Wont Be Long - Spliced take 1,2,5 Moonlight Swim - Alternate Master Mama - Alternate Master Frankfort Special (medium tempo)- Spliced take 6,8 Mexico - Spliced take 1,2 * Long Legged Girl - Spliced take 1,2 She's A Machine - Spliced take 4,4,5 G.I.

Sahara Tahoe

AudiRec proudly presents: SAHARA TAHOE – a brandnew CD which will be released February 10, 2017. This time we have decided to release the probably last “listenable” Lake Tahoe “Summer of 1971” recording from an Elvis show. Recorded with non-professional equipment by a female fan in the audience - on July 31st, 1971 at the Dinner Show - it is the first time that this concert is available on a “real” cd.

Elvis stint at Lake Tahoe´s “Sahara Tahoe”-Hotel in the summer of 1971 is unfortunately not documented that good. But anyhow, what seems to be pretty clear from the information we found in our research is that Elvis had a really good time at this first engagement at the (compared to the Las Vegas International Hotel) smaller venue. Rex Martin´s weekly publication for the worldwide Elvis fan base was still young at that time but already delivered first hand information from fans who were at the shows at the “Sahara Tahoe”. So for instance fans were able to read astounding facts like this in Issue´s number 24 and 25: “Elvis sang Happy Birthday to a 12-year old girl and gave her a 4-LP set! He was giving away those gift sets from the stage now and then….” and “On the closing night there was a line of people the length of the hotel just waiting for news of CANCELLATIONS! The showroom only holds 1200 but they squeezed 2000 in that night. They had 3 lines going in. One for Sahara people (persons staying in the hotel), one for people with reservations for the show, and one for people who didn´t have them.”

It is also interesting to learn from those magazines that beside from the “usual” set-list these additional songs have been heard by fans at at least one of the other shows: Treat Me Nice / Old Shep / Sweet Caroline / It´s Impossible / I Was The One / It´s Over / Hawaiian Wedding Song / My Babe / Help Me Make It Through The Night. Issue number 24 tells us also: “He always opened with That´s All Right Mama but changed the order of most of the rest” and “Elvis wore many white jumpsuits, plus a black and red outfit. Red jacket with black trim, black slacks, red shirt, black Onyx ring” and also “He split his pants once and was so embarrassed!”.

Oh yeah, those good old Lake Tahoe days! Well, we hope your spare time allows you to sit back, put your headphones on and listen to the Dinner Show at the “Sahara Tahoe” Hotel from July 31, 1971. It´s Lake Tahoe! It´s the Sahara Tahoe Showroom! It´s ELVIS! Enjoy!

Please be aware that this new release is limited to 300 copies only! Be sure to get your copy if you are interested.

*THE ESSENTIAL UNDUBBED MASTERS 1969-1976*

This brand new deluxe 8 cd set 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 seperate 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.

Sit back and enjoy!

Let Me.. Sing Again - delayed

Due to technical reason the new MxF special product , Let Me..Sing Again has been postponed to mid January. We are sorry for the delay but we will improve the product and it feature more bonuses too.
MxF staff

The MxF label will release in January 2017 its new second special product called “Let Me.. Sing Again featuring Elvis' Dinner and Midnight show from August 25th, 1973.
These recordings are taken directly from a first generation of original tapes.
The afternoon show is previously unreleased show, the evening show previously released here is presented in a very improved audio-quality.

August 1973, Elvis Is back for his last summer season..The 1973 was begun in the better way, with the Aloha special at least commercial talking…But the things turned immediately toward the wrong direction..the man had too weight to bear in his human shoulders... But as always for Elvis the music keeps his mind alive and overall active..so the best moments of our man is when He is on the stage..The August 1973 is no exception..>>

The August 25 present Elvis in positive mood , both the shows are solid and well performed...Elvis deliveries some killer version of My Boy and You Gave Me a Mountain, keeping steady part of the show the two classic Suspicious Minds and Bridge Over Troubled Water and delighting the audience with the sensitive The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face and rocker&blues latest single Steamroller Blues.

The sound is very good for an ambient recording, We have on our hands the original mono tape of extremely good quality enabling us to carry out a simple re-mastering work, concentrating on the reduction of noise trying to achieve a more clear sound balancing the channel and put at the right speed the tape. The result a pretty dynamic tape with a great definition of the background music and for sure you can live the atmosphere of a Elvis’ concert in the seventy.

Ask your dealer for sound samples.
This is the second very special Product for this label, this new double set will be housed in a deluxe 7”( 20x20 cm ) size DIGIPACK, containing a bonus card with a collection of live photographs newspapers clips and memorabilia plus a high quality glossy 135 gram paper poster of 60x20 cm size.

Make The World Go Away- From Japan With Love Vol. 2

Recorded live at the Hilton Hotel, Las Vegas, NV, August 8th 1973 Midnight show
Expected soon from the E. P. Collector label is another fine release, our last one for 2016.
This new CD is titled "Make The World Go Away“ (label E. P. Collector, catalogue number EPC 2016-09).
Recorded live from the audience on the Las Vegas, NV, August 8th, 1973 M/S, the CD is subtitled "From Japan With Love Vol. 2“ because it was recorded by a member of a Japanese fan club.

The Las Vegas, August 8th, 1973 Midnight show is previously unreleased. This concert was never before available in good sound, until now! It was taken from a recently obtained first generation copy of an original audience recorded master cassette tape and digitally restored for your listening pleasure.
Elvis opened his 9th Las Vegas season on August 6th, he performed a total of 59 shows, closing on September 3rd - and unlike in February ’73, there were no cancellations. Elvis refreshed his repertoire with several new additions, like “My Boy” or “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” and his concerts were longer. Elvis looked and sounded good and he gave an excellent performance on August 8th! In fact, this is a delightful concert and one that is warmly recommended. Elvis sings quite well, and his interplay with the audience is fun to listen to. He sounds in full control, like he was entertaining the crowd from his own living room.
This CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipak filled with collection of images taken in August 1973.
As with all our releases, this CD is a labour of love. We are planning several very interesting CDs in 2017, so stay tuned!

A Vegas Fling With The King

Coming out soon is the 9th volume of Straight Arrow's "From The Booth Tapes“ series. It's 2CD entitled "A Vegas Fling With The King" featuring Elvis' Dinner and Midnight show from February 12th, 1973. These recordings are taken directly from original 'booth recorded' mastertapes.
These concerts showcase Elvis in excellent form! Famous actor Jack Lord and his wife Marie were present for both shows. Elvis called out Jack's name, and Jack stood up. The applause was tremendous. Elvis grinned and said, 'Sit down, Jack, you're getting more applause than I am'.
Both  shows are previously unreleased and 100% complete. The February 12, 1973 D/S is a completely new show, even for die-hard Elvis fans. It has never been in circulation - in any form. The February 12, 1973 M/S was in circulation in the form of amateur CDRs in very bad sound. It has nothing to do with the top-notch booth quality tape presented here by Straight Arrow. Ask your dealer for sound samples.

As usual, this new release will be presented in a beautiful 4-panel digipak that includes Jack Lord's special memory of Elvis and rare photos taken on- and off-stage during Elvis’ 1973 Las Vegas Winter season.

If you liked our previous Las Vegas 1973 releases like “One For The Ladies” (SA/SP 2016-41-02) or “Doin’ The Best I Can” (SA/SP 2015-29-02), we'll bet that you will also love this one!

Spliced Takes - T-R-O-U-B-L-E & SPLICED TAKES “SNOWBIRD

ELVIS PRESLEY – SPLICED TAKES “-T-R-O-U-B-L-E”

Finally a "seventies" album!
CMT is proud to present their latest release which promises to be another winner!

Again the STAR team has done all the edits on this album, and they did an even better job , with lots of excellent edits, and surprises.

Unlike other “import” labels, they truly were able to produce an album using many incomplete takes , to create beautiful new tracks.

Their professional edits will blow you away, and will make you believe these are unreleased takes.

Amazing new takes were created, and this could be THE release for the holiday season:

It starts of with a great edit of "Trouble/Guitar Man" have we heard this before?
"Ill Be There" has a complete different opening, "Pledging My Love" sounds very different, Moody Blue
has the "Supicious Minds" approach with fade in/fade out effect, "The Sound of You Cry" was shortened 
for a chance, and has more power then ever. "Kentucky Rain" runs much longer and listen to the drama in 
Elvis' voice! For the first time a "live-splice" was used and makes "It's Impossible" a great bonus!

We could go on, but the best thing to do is PRE-ORDER now, and enjoy all of these tracks by yourself!
Elvis fans have been spoiled over the years, and they all know.. “the end is near” almost every complete take available has been released,  so this is as close as you can get for a “New” album!
The set comes  in a “Deluxe Digipack” with beautiful artwork, and is strictly limited to 500 copies!
Pre-order your set now, this will be sold out soon!

ELVIS PRESLEY – SPLICED TAKES SNOWBIRD

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 someting really new now!

One of THE hightlights 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.

HEART 'N' SOUL... AND SOME MIGHTY FINE ROCK 'N' ROLL

Expected soon from the E. P. Collector label is another fine release.
From Japan With Love Vol. 1
Recorded live at the Hilton Hotel, Las Vegas, NV, August 8th 1972 Midnight show

Our new CD is titled "Heart 'n' Soul And Some Mighty Fine Rock 'n' Roll“ (label E. P. Collector, catalogue number EPC 2016-08)
Recorded live from the audience in Las Vegas, NV, August 8th, 1972 M/S, CD is subtitled "From Japan With Love Vol. 1“ because it was recorded by a member of a Japanese fan club.
The Las Vegas, August 8th, 1972 Midnight show is previously unreleased. This concert was never before available in listenable sound, until now! It was taken from a recently found first generation copy of an original audience recorded master cassette tape and digitally restored for your listening pleasure.
This concert is excellent!! Actually all shows from 1972 Summer Festival are. Highlights are "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'", "What Now My Love“, ''Little Sister / Get Back“ and early, humble version of "My Way“.
This CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipak accompanied with 8-page booklet, filled with memories written by a Japanese fan who taped the show and met Elvis backstage, and a collection of on- and off-stage images taken in August 1972.
If you enjoyed some of our other releases such as "Elvis Reaches Austin City Limits" or "The Beat Is Back" among others then your sure to enjoy our latest release.
As with all our releases this CD is a labour of love and hope you enjoy. We are planning a few more interesting CDs taken from those "Japanese“ tapes. So stay tuned!

Sunset In Vegas & A Night In Saginaw

After a longer break Touchdown Productions proudly presents two new releases - ‘Sunset In Vegas’ and ’A Night In Saginaw’! The first one presents you the midnight show from August 23, 1974 in Las Vegas for the first time in complete form. The show was first released in 1993 as ‘Vegas Birthday Show’, but it was incomplete and missed three songs from the show. The soundquality is very good for an audience recording. The show itself is a good one. Elvis wasn’t very talkative and was focused on singing and entertaining the audience.

See See Rider - I Got A Woman/Amen - Elvis Welcomes The Audience - Love Me - If You Love Me (Let Me Know) - It’s Midnight - Big Boss Man - Fever - Love Me Tender - All Shook Up - The Wonder Of You - I’m Leavin’ - Softly As I Leave You - Hound Dog* - You Gave Me A Mountain - Polk Salad Annie - Band Introductions - If You Talk In Your Sleep - Why Me Lord - Teddy Bear/Don’t Be Cruel* - Happy Birthday - Hawaiian Wedding Song - Let Me Be There - Elvis About His Rings - Can’t Help Falling In Love

total runtime: 68.15 min

The second release presents you the show from April 25, 1977 in Saginaw. The concert was released for the first time in 1994. The soundquality is significantly better as Touchdown Productions was able to find a new source. After the very good concert in Ann Arbor the day before, Elvis also offered in Saginaw a very solid show with nice versions of ‘Heartbreak Hotel’, ‘Little Sister’ and a mighty fine version of ‘My Way’.
Also included are six former released songs, which got newly remastered.

MEMPHIS RECORDING SERVICE: THE COMPLETE WORKS 1953 – 1955

MRS will release a 2CD/100page book compilation titled ‘MEMPHIS RECORDING SERVICE: THE COMPLETE WORKS 1953 – 1955’ on the 25th November 2016.

The 100-page book chronicles Elvis’ short recording career there, from its humble beginnings (his personal acetate recordings from July 1953 and January 1954) through to the final Sun sessions in 1955. The full and comprehensive text is complemented by rare photographs and unseen pieces of documentation.

The 2CD’s contain the complete archival studio recordings from 1953- 1955:  Elvis’ personal acetates, the Sun masters, along with rare session outtakes. The tracks have been painstakingly remastered and restored.

There are many highlights on this new release. All of the newly remastered tracks now sound much clearer and crisper. For instance, ‘That’s All Right’ has been taken from the ‘Mother’ master of the original Sun 45rpm. Also, for the first time on CD, ‘I Forgot to Remember to Forget’ appears without the false bass RCA added to it in the 1980s when tampering with the master tapes.

The remastering of Elvis’ first acetate recordings – ‘My Happiness’ and ‘That’s When Your Heartaches Begin’ (from July 1953) – has also well exceeded the sound quality ever achieved before on these primitive recordings. Furthermore, on the outtakes of ‘Blue Moon’, the painstaking audio restoration has removed the overload and studio hum present on previous issues, and made them sound much better than ever before.  Indeed, all previous erroneous mastering faults and miscalculations have been rectified on this release, making it the best collection of these seminal recordings thus far.

Too Late For Goodbyes

Straight Arrow is pleased to bring you a new double CD dedicated to Elvis' May ’77 tour. The Knoxville, May 20th, 1977 tour opening show is previously unreleased. This recording was taken directly from a recently found original audience-recorded mastertape of excellent sound quality! This historic concert was never before available in decent sound… until now! The Largo, May 22nd, 1977 show was first released by JR Productions (”ELVIS… TONIGHT 8:30 PM“, 1994). 22 years have passed, and it is the right time for a proper re-release. We dug up the original cassette and restored it from scratch. Knoxville is a solid tour opening concert. ”And I Love You So” and ”Hurt” are performed really well but one highlight stands out, an amazing performance of „How Great Thou Art“. Largo was affected by sound problems and Elvis changed the microphone several times. Nevertheless he was in a very good mood, and he gave decent performances of songs like ”Fairytale”, ”Funny How Time Slips Away” and ”My Way”. As usual, this new release will be presented in a beautiful 4-panel digipak that includes rare photos taken in Knoxville and Largo and a newspaper review of the May 22nd, Largo concert.
It’s new STRAIGHT ARROW so you know what to expect!

ABOUT THE SEASON
Extract from the booklet
…..Without any doubt August 1972 is the focus of this year for ELVIS, 64 strong shows for this season, Elvis's voice was great - even richer than in his January/February season! Elvis also looked superb - just as good as in the recent June tour with such HIGH QUALITY SHOWS, looking great , in excellent spirits. After a modest opening night the show will go growing day by day . Seems strange but Elvis keeps his performance to the top for all the season and even this attitude will be growing to the end of the season with shows longer and with a very serious approach to the music, Elvis cared about his songs and each performance was 'fresh' like he was singing' it for the first time, also Elvis being a perfectionist expected a quality performance from everyone during every song! Maybe the present of 200 English fans from the first September give him an extra incentive to deliver some killer shows, maybe only for a while he could to live his dream to be playing in Europe…Without doubt a different kind of approach to the music the normally we can’t find in Vegas ‘ Elvis’ performance (normally also in his earlier season Elvis begins to be tire of Vegas after the second week of the engagement..) he seems to sing the show his life and you know when he wants he can delivery what nobody other singer or rock band can do. In the same time he sings a different kind of songs…….

NOT TOO SWEET, IT BRINGS TO THE BEST QUALITY TO DATE!!!!THE DEFINITIVE RELEASE OF THE AUGUST&SEPTEMBER VEGAS SEASON!YOU CAN’T MISS.
Weight of each BOXSET : 1,5 KG
We always tryin’ to give more, We hope of this new release will be a real great update of your Elvis’ live show collection.
FOR THE LAST is easy to understand with the variation present in the boxset will be very hard to get the same copy. A classic for the TRUE collectors.
COLLECT THEM ALL!!!!!!

Spliced takes “Nashville”

After their first “Hollywood” release, CMT is proud to present their latest release which promises to be another winner!
Again the STAR team has done all the edits on this album, and they did an even better job , with lots of excellent edits, and surprises.
Unlike other “import” labels, they truly were able to produce an album using many incomplete takes , to create beautiful new tracks.
Their professional edits will blow you away, and will make you believe these are unreleased takes.
Just listen to the amazing alternate master of “Ain’t That Loving You Baby” re-created from scratch including 17 (!!) splices, this brings you the version used on the 1984 “Reconsider Baby” album, in much better remastered sound.
“Fever” is presented with longer intro and great splices creating a whole new outtake! “Guitar Man” is spliced 5(!) times and also has a new “What’d I Say” ending. “U.S. Male” has an unusual extra verse included which didn’t make it to the record “You son of a b…”
Another highlight must be “I Gotta Know” with alternate Jordanaires backing. “I Need Your Love Tonight” has an additional guitar solo, and the alternate “I’m Yours” also includes the spoken version.

We could go on, but the best thing to do is PRE-ORDER now, and enjoy all of the 30 tracks by yourself! Elvis fans have been spoiled over the years, and they all know.. “the end is near” almost every complete take available has been released, so this is as close as you can get for a “New” album! The set comes in a “Deluxe Digipack” with beautiful artwork, and is strictly limited to 500 copies! Pre-order your set now, this will be sold out soon!
Tracks:
Aint That Loving You Baby - Alternate Master I Need Your Love Tonight Spliced take 6,7,13 I'm Coming Home - Spliced take 5,4 The Girl of My Best Friend - Spliced take 2,3 Never Ending - Spliced take 2,3,3 The Girl Next Door Went A Walkin' - Spliced take 2,3,3,3 Fame and Fortune - Spliced take 4,2 Fountain of Love - Spliced take 4,6 In My Fathers House -Spliced take 3,4,6,7 I Gotta Know - Alternate Master Finders Keepers, Losers Weepers - Spliced take 2,3 Little Sister - Spliced take 7,9 Suspicion -Spliced take 5/wp 3 I'm Yours - Alternate Master Fever - Alternate Master Make Me Know It - Spliced take 2,3 Surrender - Spliced take 3,6 Such A Night - Spliced take 4,1 Are You Lonesome Tonight - Alternate Master Echoes of Love - Spliced take 4,5,3 Judy - Spliced take 2,3,7 You Don't Know Me - - Spliced take 7,10 Guitar Man/What’d I Say - Spliced take 1,5,10,12,10 Stay Away - Spliced take 12,14 Mine - Spliced take - 3,4 Run On - Spliced take 5,4,6 Where No One Stands Alone - Spliced take 3/ wp 3 Crying in the Chapel - Spliced take 2,1,3 You'll Never Walk Alone - Spliced take 4,8,1 U.S. Male - Alternate Master

ROAD TO NOWHERE

Recorded live at the Freedom Hall, Louisville, KY, May 21st, 1977
Expected soon is our new CD release titled ”ROAD TO NOWHERE” (label E.P. Collector, catalogue number EPC 2016-07), recorded live from the audience in Louisville, KY, May 21st, 1977. It was the second stop of Elvis’ May 1977 tour and according to Larry Geller, Elvis was in a very bad shape prior the show. Dr. Nick was present in the hotel room, using cold water with ice to make Elvis ready for concert. Listening to this CD, one must say that under those circumstances, Elvis did a remarkably good job! Among the concert highlights are ”That’s All Right“, „You Gave Me A Mountain“ ”Heartbreak Hotel”, ”My Way” and usual showtopper “Hurt“. The May 21st, 1977 show is previously unreleased in any form and it was never available on the collectors circuit in acceptable sound. The producers have been looking for a good sounding recording for long time. Finally they got a solid sounding tape from an Elvis collector in the USA. The CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipak filled with a positive concert review from the local press and a collection of quite decent images taken on May 21st, 1977 in Louisville, KY.

Tracklist:
01. Also Sprach Zarathustra (2001 Theme) - 02. C. C. Rider - 03. medley: I Got A Woman / Amen - 04. That's All Right - 05. Love Me - 06. If You Love Me (Let Me Know) - 07.

THE DEMO ACETATES
WHEN A NEW ELVIS MOVIE WAS CREATED, COLONEL PARKER USED TO ASK
SEVERAL SONGWRITERS TO WRITE SONGS FOR THE MOVIE.
MOSTLY THE COLONEL GAVE THEM A TITLE OR A DESCRIPTION OF THE SCENE AND THE SONGWRTERS UNDERSTOOD WHAT KIND OF A SONG THE COLONEL
NEEDED.

THIS SO CALLED ‘DEMOS’ WERE THEN RECORDED (AT EXPENSES OF THE SONGWRITERS) ON AN ACETATE DISC AND SENDED TO THE COLONEL FOR
APPROVAL. OBVIOUSLY THERE WAS CONCURRENCE BETWEEN THE DIFFERENT SONGWRITERS, SOME OF THE SONGS WERE REJECTED, SOME WERE ACTUALLY RECORDED BY ELVIS.

THE ACTUAL DEMOS ARE UNIQUE, MOSTLY THERE WERE ONLY ONE OR TWO
ACETATES MADE AND DUE TO THE MATERIAL (WAX ON A METAL PLATE) THEY WERE VERY FRAGILE AND COULD ONLY BE PLAYED A FEW TIMES.

THIS CD CONTAINS NEWLY DISCOVERED DEMO RECORDINGS, ALL OF THESE
RECORDINGS WERE RECORDED & WRITTEN FOR THE ELVIS MOVIES.

SOME WERE NOT USED FOR OBVIOUS REASONS, SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY WERE NOT GOOD ENOUGH, AND SOME U CAN ACTUALLY IMAGINE ELVIS SINGING THEM.
FUN IN ACAPULCO IS ALMOST A COPY OF THE DEMO, EXCEPT FOR SOME
LYRICS THAT WERE CHANGED DURING THE RECORDING.

MOST OF THESE ACETATES COME FROM THE DOLORES FULLER COLLECTION AND WERE WRITTEN BY HER AND COMPOSE BY BEN WEISSMAN, EXCEPT FOR FUN IN ACAPULCO (BEN WEISMAN/SID WAYNE), NIGHT LIFE (GIANT/BAUME/KAYE), I NEED SOMEBODY TO LEAN ON (POMUS/SHUMAN)& LOVE ON THE ROCKS (TEPPER/BENNETT)

SIT BACK AND ENJOY! SOME OF THESE SONGS MIGHT TURN OUT TO BE

Elvis - Hilton Showroom vol. 5

AudiRec proudly presents: ELVIS – HILTON SHOWROOM VOLUME 5 – a brandnew CD which will be released shortly. It includes an audience recording of the complete and so far unreleased performance from March 27, 1975 (Dinner Show) at the Las Vegas Hilton Hotel. Expect another dynamic Elvis performance from a time period when Elvis was willing to “deliver”!

Here we go with probably the last known recording of a March 75 Elvis Vegas-Show in pretty good, listenable sound. From the reports we have on hand (mainly from our personal archives of original “Elvis News Service Weekly” magazines) it shows that Elvis did just great since the engagement started on March 18. Forrest Duke from the “Las Vegas review Journal” commented “Hilton´s Elvis stronger than ever” and pointed out some new titles in Elvis´ setlist. Even Glen D. Hardin´s Aunt Ann Cummings attended the shows around March 27 and commented positively “Elvis his old self again”. Well, since you are soon able to own the complete performance on CD just judge yourself!

One For The Ladies - From the „booth tapes“ Vol. 8

Coming out soon is the 8th volume of Straight Arrow's "From The Booth tapes“ series. It's 2xCD entitled "One For The Ladies" featuring Elvis' Dinner and Midnight show from February 10th 1973. These recordings are taken directly from original 'booth recorded' mastertapes. Both these concerts showcase Elvis in fine form. It was a busy month, with many highs and lows, but thanks to the outstanding success of the ‘Aloha’ special, Elvis' reputation as the ultimate superstar was now firmly cemented. There were a few off-nights due to Elvis having the flu, but he was certainly in good spirits at these two concerts, and he delivered the goods to two packed showrooms. These excellent sound booth recordings capture the excitement of these shows beautifully. The Dinner show is previously unreleased, except for portions of an incomplete soundboard recording with a bass-heavy mix and Elvis' voice in the background (CDs ""Echoes Of Aloha" and "Aloha, Jerry!", both on the Audionics label in 2013). The Midnight show has been previously released on CD ("I'd Like You To Meet Jack Lord" on the Crown label in 2002, and the slightly improved "Turning Up The Heat In Las Vegas" on Memory Records in 2003). However, these older CDs have nothing to do with this Straight Arrow’s excellent "booth tape“ version. Ask your dealer for sound samples.

Holding His Own In Tahoe!

Straight Arrow is pleased to bring you a previously unreleased concert from Elvis’ last season in Lake Tahoe. Opinions on the standard of Elvis' last stint in Lake Tahoe often vary. Granted, he did look quite bloated during these shows, and the jumpsuits often looked unflattering, but Elvis was generally in good voice. He delivered his longest ever shows in Tahoe and the King really did seemed to enjoy the intimacy of the showroom, along with the rapport with the fans in attendance there. The May 8th 1976 Midnight Show is, without doubt, one of best concerts from the engagement. With the exception of a messed-up "The Wonder Of You", Elvis performed consistently well at this concert. His delivery, on the whole, was very strong. There’s a nice intimacy to the recording, and his interplay with audience and musicians alike was a true delight. There were also a number of vocally-impressive renditions, one being Elvis’ latest RCA single, “Hurt", which he performed twice. Also Worth a mention were solid performances of "Polk Salad Annie", "My Way", "Tryin' To Get To You" and "Mystery Train / Tiger Man". A water pistol fight at the beginning of the show underlined how much Elvis was enjoying himself. A most interesting concert in rather good sound quality - ask your dealer for sound samples. As usual, this new release will be presented in a beautiful 4-panel digipak that includes a great deal of information plus Lake Tahoe memorabilia and rare photos taken during the season. If you liked our other Lake Tahoe 1976 releases like “A Triple Threat!” (SA/SP 2011-03-02), we'll bet that you will also love this one!
