It would have probably been better to add your post to the existing thread on the Blue Hawaii FTD release https://www.elvis-collectors.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=114991#p1934891 instead of starting a new one. I’m sure I have that DT boxset along with a couple of others tucked away in a cupboard somewhere. Unlike Blue Hawaii, I doubt we will see an FTD equivalent on Double Trouble. :wink:

It's ok that you open a new thread.
But at least write a review.
Just "I got it" doesn't warrant a thread.

So are you suggesting that whenever someone gets a release, they create a new thread and then writes a review to justify it. :wink:

If it is a huge and substantial review, yes.
Better justified than 5 people opening each a thread with the question "where do you order x or y item"?
I am tired of those.

I have to say that cannot recall seeing lots of separate threads on where do I order something from. It’s the ones that tell us that their copy had been shipped that I cannot understand and then the follow one that tells us it has arrived. It’s as bad as those sealed to reveal videos where the viewer has to go through the finding of a knife and then watching the presenter struggle with the knife in trying to cut through the packaging.

Keith Flynn has updated his Session Notes to include the Making Of Blue Hawaii FTD release:

https://www.keithflynn.com/recording-sessions/610321.html

https://www.keithflynn.com/recording-sessions/610322.html

https://www.keithflynn.com/recording-sessions/610323.html

:smt023



Must say, I enjoy all the discs and the books are full of beautiful photos (perfect for the topic matter).
Was also impressed to see some nice photos from the '61 Pearl Harbor venue / events surrounding, including airport arrival.
(The only "complaint" I might have . . is the weight of the boxset . . :wink: . . but, then again, maybe it really shouldn't be called a "complaint" because we were given so much :smt045 :smt049 :smt048 :smt055 :smt041 )
Glorious release :smt007 smt164 smt201 !!

Ancient history. Elvis knew all of the recording session data over half century earlier ;-)

When your heart gets weary - time to sing a song,
But when a dream is calling you

I didn't know that, I just saw it today (good to know, though, . . as always, Keith Flynn is on top of things . . so, I am not surprised).

He hasn't broken any forum guideline here, so this topic is fine.

You telling him what to do, however, might be pressing your luck with our rules.

If 7 weeks is "ancient history," what is 20 years and 1 month of membership?

Absolutely, yes. One of the top three of all the David English and Pål Granlund FTD book projects.

And such an exquisite title.

You really tell people all the time what to do.
Are you pressing your luck?
We all know you don't.
