elvis recording session 1977

Post by maxaxeman »

hi!

I have in my possession this little book of elvis recordings written by jorgensen / rasmussen / mikkelsen

It is the first edition of 1977.

my question is, being one of the first (or the first) is incomplete in information?

or is it a book where EVERYTHING is recorded?

That was the THIRD edition of the book, and as complete as possible at the time. But a lot of information has come to light since then. You will want to find a copy of Ernst's 1998 book, and then review these two session sites:

I posted this a few years ago:

Regarding Ernst's incredible and important "Recording Sessions" publications, there is a rich history:

FIRST: Softbound, issued 1975, Denmark

Image



SECOND: Softbound, white cover, completed July 1977, issued August 1977

Image



THIRD: Softbound, red cover but same image as SECOND, added info, issued late 1977

Image



FOURTH: Softbound, red cover, completed and issued 1984, Denmark (Had separate Index booklet, too)

Image



FIFTH: Hardcover, issued 1985, straight copy on contents of 1984 book, included booklet text

Image



SIXTH: Hardcover glossy, issued 1986, may have included post-1984 updates

Image



SEVENTH: Hardcover with dust sleeve, issued 1998, expanded to included detailed and delightful narrative ... ESSENTIAL purchase

Image



EIGHTH: Softcover edition of 1998 version, issued 2000, margin reduced on original pages to save money ... ESSENTIAL if one cannot find the hardcover edition

Image



Additional note:

A September 2009 announcement by the Diane Publishing Company of a new imprint of Reconsider Baby (the SIXTH, from 1986) never happened.

Can I ask you one more question?

How are the columns interpreted?

I can not decipher the information it brings

Sure.

RCA matrix number (coding system) - Song Title - Date of Recording - First Release (RCA LP number or single number)
