2-LP-SET RAGS TO RICHES (MBM 2024-1-5)


Millbranch Music is excited to introduce the (limited to 300 copies) vinyl edition of our acclaimed album “Rags To Riches”, a continuation of the success from last year's CD release. This special edition honors Elvis Presley's legendary June and September 1970 Nashville sessions, where he collaborated with a distinguished group of musicians to produce some of the most heartfelt and enduring music of his career.

During the June 1970 sessions, Elvis worked with legendary guitarist James Burton, whose electric guitar licks enhanced tracks such as "Patch It Up" and "I've Lost You", as well as the talented Norbert Putnam, whose bass lines provided the foundation for "The Next Step is Love". The September sessions saw Elvis collaborating with the same high caliber musicians, including the gifted pianist David Briggs, whose contributions helped to define the sound of songs like "I Really Don't Want To Know" and "Bridge Over Troubled Water".

This vinyl release includes special printed inner sleeves with liner-notes titled “Designed to Be Beautiful”, exploring the reasons why these sessions capture some of Elvis' most beautiful and mature work, a creative peak in his career. Also, the black vinyl edition includes a bonus CD, and a bonus photo from the "That's The Way It Is" motion picture, providing a visual complement to the music.

Our goal with this vinyl edition is to present the music as it was intended, highlighting the distinct qualities of the mono mixes, the special mastering done for this vinyl edition cements that sentiment. This release is a celebration of Elvis’ legacy, the talented musicians who worked with him, and the timeless music they created together. Now available at your favorite dealer, this edition invites fans and newcomers alike to experience Elvis Presley's music in a format that pays homage to the artist's significant contributions to music, underscored by the exceptional talent of the session musicians from those pivotal Nashville sessions.

55th anniversary From Elvis In Memphis ( 3 LP set)

When looking at Elvis' life, there were three producers that were responsible for a boost in Elvis' career. The first has to be Sam Phillips; the next Steve Binder; and last but not least, Chips Moman. All three men knew exactly what they wanted, and they pushed Elvis to his limits, creating a result beyond anyone's expectations. And no, it wasn't luck that brought these men to Elvis at the right time.
Together, these men created the right time! On these three albums, we're presenting alternate takes of tracks that Elvis recorded in 1969 at the American Sound Studio - Memphis, Tennessee. Produced by Chips Moman, they are all among the best songs that Elvis ever recorded. Also included is a complete LP, filled with Elvis singing many songs from these Memphis sessions, live on stage in 1969/1970. Recorded on multitrack tapes and digitally mastered for vinyl, these tracks will blow you away.
So, sit down and enjoy Elvis at his best, like you never heard him before!

The King In The City of Six Flags

Wednesday, June 20 tour opening, Municipal Auditorium, Mobile, AL.

Legendary label Straight Arrow (established in 2005) is back with its first 2024 release of Elvis tour opening show in Mobile, Alabama, June 20, 1973. The CD is titled “The King in The City of Six Flags” (SA/SP 2024-71-02). Every tour opening concert, was a special one, and this show is not an exception. Compared with the previous April tour, Elvis was really full of enthusiasm, in great voice and fantastic mood. These June / July 73 shows are definitely best of the year! There is no need to describe every great performance of this evening but two of them stand out: fantastic versions of “How Great Thou Art” and “An American Trilogy.”

The Mobile, June 20th, 1973, 8:30pm tour opening show is previously unreleased until now! This show was not available in acceptable sound previously. Our release has been taken directly from the 24bit digital transfer made in December 2010, of the previously unreleased original audience-recorded cassette. This concert was recorded by Elvis fan, Bob Cleveland, from the USA. Every second was faithfully enhanced to achieve the optimal listening experience. The sound has been remastered to the correct speed. If you have enjoyed our previous 1973 CDs, we believe that you will love this one as well.
Ask your local CD vendor for teasers!

Presented in the usual Straight Arrow fashion with the top notch digipack including collection of the photos of Elvis June 1973 tour and review from local Mobile Press, this new release is the beauty that you must not miss!>
The Straight Arrow team is always looking for new, unreleased audience-taped shows and for improved versions of the previously released recordings. If you have such unique tapes, even damaged or broken ones, do not hesitate to contact us through your local dealer. We would like to thanks to those who have supplied them in last couple of years! Note: although Mobile is still called „The City Of Six Flags,“ in last couple of years there are disgraceful attempts to re-write the history and remove Confederation flag from the official city seal. We hope that it will not happen.

Fighting To Stay Alive

VV 2LP&CD Special Product April  2024

To be released at the end of April, Fighting To Stay Alive (VV Records) will focus on Elvis’ February 1977 tour, featuring shows from February 20 and 21, 1977, the first previously unreleased on vinyl while the second taken directly from the original high-quality tape.
 
The February shows were previously released on CD but this is the first time on vinyl format with an incredibly superior sound. The vinyl will be accompanied by a CD compilation with combines the best of the two Charlotte shows giving us a complete show. A Must-have!

The VV intends to present Elvis at the peak of his possibility. Elvis the Charlotte's two final concerts of the February tour are undoubtedly the best moments of Elvis in 1977, presenting him at the top of his possibilities, delivering two great shows. If Rock is an attitude, then the man still has it. The performances are very good and the shows are surely the best of the tour.
 
Elvis sings and is still very active on the stage He performs all the songs to the maximum of his possibilities, presenting all the best of his repertoire from the previous years combined with the last 1976 single Hurt, and introducing a new single  Moody Blue together the “new” unchained melody inside his repertoire ranging in all musical genres as only he can do.
               
We are happy to be able to associate great performance with great audio quality and overall a great bonus CD to be able to obtain a result that you can enjoy too.

The two shows are great and now consist of a solid collection of great-quality songs all well-performed. The range of Elvis’ performance is extensive we go from the oldies rocking with the two classic Little Sister and Jailhouse Rock to the power pop last single Moody Blue, without forgetting the sensitive My Way and the religious How Great Thou Art the autobiographical You Gave Me a Mountain ending with the best topic moment show the powerful pop ballad Unchained Melody where Elvis accompanied himself at the piano and without a doubt represent the highlight of the complete tour.

2 LP-SET ELVIS ´68 UNLEASHED (REEL TRAX LP 6823) THE LEGENDARY STANDUP SHOWS
Reel Trax is back with its first release on vinyl! After the great success of our recent CD release from December of last year which has been inspired by the celebration of the 55th Anniversary of Elvis´ legendary NBC-TV Special (aired December 3, 1968) we decided to release the soundtrack of the CD
- now carefully remastered for vinyl – on a stunning looking 12-inch 2-LP set and for even better sound results to be played at 45 RPM!
Vinyl collectors are well aware that two RPMs are widely available now: 33 ⅓ and 45 revolutions per minute. 45 RPM records have better sound quality than 33 ⅓ RPM records do. This is because they have more grooves for the turntable's needle to read and can express more complex and nuanced sound patterns as a result.

Step back in time and relive the extraordinary talent of Elvis Presley. "Elvis Unleashed '68" pays tribute to a musical icon who lives on forever in the hearts of millions of fans around the world. We revisit the probably most vibrant scenery of the so-called '68 “Comeback”. Reel Trax is bringing back the magic with a brandnew 2-LP release. Carefully curated and remastered in great-sounding Stereo in a highly valued professional studio in Europe, the legendary Standup shows are coming to new life. The sensational looking double album complete with liner notes from those who were there in 1968 (and written especially for this release!) is a real eye-catcher and informative as well. This album captures the raw and unrestrained energy of Elvis Presley like never before. It transports you directly to the iconic standup shows of “The King”, recorded in June 1968.

After a period of absence from the stage, Elvis made a triumphant return to the spotlight with a short series of unforgettable concerts before a close audience. Meant to be shown in parts in the then upcoming TV-Special simply called “ELVIS” it was a sensational appearance in its own. In general it was a time when he rediscovered his musical roots while filming the special and he delivered his art with pure passion. With an impressive collection of timeless classics, breathtaking vocal performances, and spontaneous interactions with the audience, "Elvis Unleashed '68" reveals the
true essence of a legendary artist at the peak of his power.

Update January 24, 2024

The King In Motown City

The E. P. Collector Label is back this Year with another unique release of Elvis show in Detroit, April 23nd, 1977. The CD is titled "the King In Motown City" (EPC 2024-27). Yes, it was the very last show that Elvis played in Detroit, primarily known as the center of the automobile industry, where three major car manufacturers operate - Ford, Chrysler and General Motors, hence the nickname Motown ("motor city").

The April 22nd, 1977 concert was previously released in 2006 on the extremely poor sounding CD "The King Has Landed," (actually one of worst sounding Elvis CDs ever) with several tracks being incomplete. This show was never available in solid, listenable sound - until now! So throw your old CD into garbage can and enjoy "the King In Motown City!" The new tape was obtained from an American fan and has been carefully restored and mastered in January 2024, with a focus on preserving the integrity of the original recording. Hence, some minor hiss may be present; we felt it more important to keep the high frequencies and natural ambience of the original recording for historic reasons. The sound is very good for an off line recording - ask your CD dealer for audio samples! As usual the CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipack with local press review. All images used for the artwork were taken during April 1977 tour including real Detroit photos.

Elvis Meets Liberace

Monday, December 2nd 1975 Opening show, Las Vegas Hilton, Las Vegas, NV.
Straight Arrow Special Products SA/SP 2023-70-02
Following the remarkable success of our "IN THE GHETTO" CD, it is time to move on to yet another exciting project. Straight Arrow decided to re-release the Las Vegas, December 2nd, 1975 Opening show, which was previously released in 1996 on "Season's Greetings From Vegas - Christmas Opening '75" (now a very rare CD) and never re-released since then. 27 years later, Straight Arrow was fortunate enough to obtain an old audience recorded tape used for the original release and release this show again, using today’s sound restoration technology.
Elvis December 1975 engagement was meant to make up for his abbreviated Summer festival in August, cancelled just after 3 days and five shows. Starting on November 30th, for the following 3 days Elvis had stage rehearsals in the Las Vegas Hilton showroom. The only really new song added to the set list was "America (The Beautiful)." Bobby Hatfield from The Righteous Brothers and Elvis' old friend, the legendary Liberace attended this concert and they met with Elvis after his show. Surprisingly, Elvis performed the song "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'" for the very last time - definitely due to Bobby Hatfield's presence! Every second of the tape was enhanced in the renowned Sound & Vision studio to achieve the optimal listening experience. The sound was remastered to the correct speed. If you have enjoyed our previous improved releases i.e. "HERE COMES THE STARS" CD in 2009, we sincerely believe that you will love this one as well. Ask your local CD vendor for teasers! This special Christmas release is presented in de-luxe digipack inspired by December '75 Las Vegas Hilton Hotel menu, accompanied with Variety press review and liner notes. All images used for this project were taken on stage during Elvis' 1975 Las Vegas December Opening Night.

Straight Arrow is planning several releases for 2024 including more volumes of the "From John Herman Tapes" series and a special 3CD set with previously unreleased shows. Stay tuned! The Straight Arrow team is always looking for new, unreleased audience-taped shows or for improved versions of the previously released recordings. If you have such unique tapes, even damaged or broken, do not hesitate to contact us through your local dealer. Special thanks to those who supplied them in the past! It is YOU who made many of our projects possible!

ELVIS ´68 UNLEASHED (REEL TRAX CD 6823) THE LEGENDARY STANDUP SHOWS
Reel Trax is back with its first release in 6 months! After the great success of our spring release “Blowing In The Wind” we now present a completely new CD project – inspired by the soon to come celebration of the 55th Anniversary of Elvis´ legendary NBC-TV Special which aired December 3, 1968! Step back in time and relive the extraordinary talent of Elvis Presley. "Elvis Unleashed '68" pays tribute to a musical icon who lives on forever in the hearts of millions of fans around the world. We revisit the probably most vibrant scenery of the so-called '68 “Comeback”. Reel Trax is bringing back the magic with a brandnew CD release. Carefully curated and remastered in great-sounding Stereo in a highly valued professional studio in Europe, the legendary Standup shows are coming to new life. The sensational looking 6-panel deluxe album complete with liner notes from those who were there in 1968 (and written especially for this release!) is a real eye-catcher and informative as well. This album captures the raw and unrestrained energy of Elvis Presley like never before. It transports you directly to the iconic standup shows of “The King”, recorded in June 1968. After a period of absence from the stage, Elvis made a triumphant return to the spotlight with a short series of unforgettable concerts before a close audience. Meant to be shown in parts in the then upcoming TV-Special simply called “ELVIS” it was a sensational appearance in its own. In general it was a time when he rediscovered his musical roots while filming the special and he delivered his art with pure passion. With an impressive collection of timeless classics, breathtaking vocal performances, and spontaneous interactions with the audience, "Elvis Unleashed '68" reveals the true essence of a legendary artist at the peak of his power.

Update November 14, 2023

Three great items out November 15th!

- STAR PRESENTS:

STAR PRESENTS: ELVIS - HE'LL HAVE TO GO
Elvis in Concert as never seen before!
They did it again! 
The STAR team made an incredible new dvd featuring the Elvis in Concert footage in multiple angles!
For the first time ever present in widescreen.

Not only multiple angles were used but also the concert is edited without too much talking and songs blend in faster.
Due to this approach Elvis performances come out much stronger then on any other dvd containing this footage.
Clever "quick" edits of the footage give a whole new feel to it and although Elvis was not at his best his voice was still incredible.
Finally a "Release worthy" version is out now!

It contains all the songs from the original "Elvis in Concert" TV Special plus all tracks from side two of the album with the same name.
Footage from the original special has been combined with outtakes and rare 8mm footage.

As a bonus a very nice "just for fun" clip has been included.
"I wanna try something new" was one of the highlights from last years Baz Luhrman movie "Elvis".
It showed Austin Butler as Elvis,  rehearsing in Vegas for his new show. Here you get to see "what could have been" since STAR edited the audio from
the soundtrack with actual footage of Elvis. Hope you like it.

Also a nice official videoclip of "That's All Right" and some bonustracks with rare footage are included.

We almost forgot the title track; "He'll Have To Go" is a typical STAR clip with lots and lots of rare footage of Elvis "through the years" 
Sadly after this final TV Special... He had to go, but.... "He will always be The King no matter what!" 

LIMITED TO 500 COPIES - PRE ORDER NOW THIS ONE WILL BE GONE BEFORE CHRISTMAS!!

This show is taken from newly found audience recorded tape and was never available in complete form and in listenable sound - until now! Carefully restored and mastered in September 2023, with a focus on preserving the integrity of the original recording. Hence, some minor hiss may be present; we felt it more important to preserve the high frequencies and natural ambience of the original recording. The sound is very good for an off line recording - ask your CD dealer for audio samples!
This CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipack with local press review. All images used for the artwork were taken during July / August 1976 tour.

SUMMER FESTIVAL: REFLECTIONS OF '71 volume 3
label: STAGE RECORDINGS
content: 3 DISCS

Now available is this 3 CD set featuring 3 audience recorded live shows from August 1971.

Volume 2 of the SUMMER FESTIVAL series featured 3 rockin' shows from his Summer Festival season in Las Vegas, August 1971. 
This follow up contains 3 more rockin' shows from the very same season. This set contains many highlights like the Beatles'  "Get Back" which Elvis only sang five times during this season. Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline" became an almost steady on the setlist during this August season, but did not return on the setlist in 1972. Beautiful renditions of songs like "I'm Leavin", "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and "It's Impossible" are also featured on this set.

Especially knowing no soundboard recordings have yet surfaced, these audience recorded shows are all we are able to enjoy.

Steel City '73

In memory of John Herman (June 25, 1942 – July 5, 2017) “I first met John Herman around 1974 - 1975. We met the old fashion ways - by mail. He was running ads in the record collector’s magazine GOLDMINE as well as in want ad sections of fan club newsletters. I belonged to several - it’s how we networked with other fans and collectors.

John and I swapped letters and traded Elvis items. Once our relationship was established we began speaking on the phone. Eventually those phone conversations about Elvis turned to more friendly topics. Family, sports and as the years went by - our health issues. He often relayed the story about being a young guy in South Carolina where he was born and being turned on to Elvis from the early days at SUN Records. One funny story involved getting the SUN release of “I Don’t Care If The Sun Don’t Shine” and disliking it so much that he used it for target practice one day. Imagine shooting a SUN label record! It was of course available in stores back then and before Elvis’ popularity exploded. Eventually John and his family relocated to Uniontown, Pennsylvania. A small town about 45 miles east of Pittsburgh along the Pennsylvania Turnpike. Pittsburgh would eventually figure greatly in his love for Elvis. John helped me immensely in building my Elvis collection. He was generous to me including trading audio cassettes, reel to reel tapes, video tape, films and records. We became such good friends he gifted me 3 Sun Records, two 45 RPM’s and one 78 RPM. As the years progressed he recorded many Elvis concerts. He saw Elvis on tour in Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York, Virginia as well as other places including Elvis’ last two engagements in Las Vegas. He shared a lot of that with me as well as other fans. He even helped me get to some of those shows and shared his access with me - I’m forever grateful. Like many of us he began recording the shows on cassette tape. A process that was a learning experience for those of us who did such a thing. The more shows you’re recorded - the better you became at it. The same applied to shooting still pictures or Super 8 film. At some point you got better and better. The interaction between Elvis’ staff, his father and eventually Elvis himself gave John pretty good access to his hero. It’s a story I’ll relate in later editions. Elvis loved policeman and that was John’s profession - a Police Officer for his hometown. John became friendly with his hero on a personal basis.

The audio recordings he made, the photographs he shot and even the iconic films he shot have become legendary in the world of Elvis. With the passing of many of the original guard of Elvis fans and collectors – his is one of those names and stories that needs to be kept relevant. He left us with many great moments and memories that we all still share and enjoy.”

Straight Arrow was fortunate enough to obtain recently recovered 1st generation copy of the original audience-recorded tape of this show, coming from collection of American fan. This historic concert was never before available in good sound quality - until now! Every second was enhanced to achieve the optimal listening experience. The sound was remastered to the correct speed. If you have enjoyed our previous 1973 CDs, we believe that you will love this one as well. Ask your local CD vendor for audio teasers! Presented in the usual Straight Arrow fashion with the top notch digipak including the photos of Elvis in Pittsburgh and Uniondale, June 1973 and great liner notes written by close friend of John Herman, this new release is another beauty that you must not miss! Straight arrow is planning several volumes of “FROM THE JOHN HERMAN MASTERTAPES” similar with our legendary 2015 “FROM THE RICK RENNIE MASTERATEPS” series. Note: Elvis super fan John Herman also taped the legendary Pittsburgh 1976 New Years Eve show, widely released by bootleggers and by the official FTD label. The Straight Arrow team is always looking for new, unreleased audience-taped shows and for better quality versions of the previously released recordings. If you have such unique tapes, even damaged or broken, do not hesitate to contact us through your local dealer!

ON STAGE UNDUBBED
NOW ENTERTAINMENT LP + CD

At the end of June 1970, RCA released the album ON STAGE. Containing 10 live tracks which weren't immediately associated with Elvis. Although mentioned on the front cover "February 1970" two tracks were recorded in August 1969. Main attraction on the album was the mega-hit "The Wonder Of You" , further the album contained tracks like John Fogerty's "Proud Mary" and Tony Joe White's "Polk Salad Annie". Especially "Polk Salad Annie" would become a standard powerhouse performance at his live appearances and be performed close to 500 times on stage. The album reached gold status 8 months later. Though very powerful and close-to-perfect tracks were selected for this album, still some overdubs had to be done to make the album suitable for release. Mostly some backing vocals needed to be added or replaced, some new guitar work was done too as well as some applause was added. Some very false backing vocals by the Sweet Inspirations needed to be covered up too. These overdubs were done at the end of March and the beginning of April 1970.

This release contains the ON STAGE album in it's undubbed form. A great raw and powerful listen!! 

 

This album is available on 180 grams Orange and White vinyl. A cd version is added too.

I WAS THE ONE: THE SINGLES COLLECTION

In June 1983 RCA released a follow-up to the "Guitar Man" remix album. This time David Briggs & Tony Brown were responsible for producing the 'I WAS THE ONE' LP.  The album was produced at the House Of David Studios in Nashville, Tennessee in June 1982. In some way, the album is comparable with the 'GUITAR MAN' album as completely new backing tracks were recorded just like for the former album. Though this time the producers were in for an even bigger challenge as the tracks chosen for this album dated back to the mid and late 50's while Felton Jarvis had to work with tracks recorded not even 10 years earlier, Briggs and Brown had to work with tracks about 25 years old. Obviously recorded with different techniques.
You love it or you hate it is often said about this album, but a sure thing is that it is part of the Elvis catalogue from the 80's.
   
Now available is this wonderful 45RPM set containing 5 singles/ep's containing all the tracks from the original album on 45rpm and cd.
This set is available in Red or Blue vinyl.

Running To The End

SR  LP & DVD Special Product June  2023

To be released at the end of June, Running To The End (SR Records) will focus on Elvis’ March 1976 tour, featuring the evening show from March 20th, 1976, previously unreleased on vinyl and taken directly from the original high-quality tape.

The March 20 Midnight Show was previously released on cd but this is the first time on vinyl format with an incredibly superior sound. The vinyl will be accompanied by a DVD with a complete show using different footage coming from the March tour. A Must have!

The SR intention is to present Elvis at the peak of his possibility and without any doubt Elvis’ first 1976 tour although not in the best shape presents him at the top of his possibilities, delivering great shows. If Rock is an attitude, then the man still has it. The performances are very good and Charlotte's show is surely the best of the tour.

Elvis sings and is still very active on the stage He performs all the songs to the maximum of his possibilities, presenting all the best of his repertoire from the previous years combined with the last 1976 two new songs like Hurt and Anthem America ranging in all musical genres as only he can do.
              
We are happy to be able to associate great performance with great audio quality and overall a great bonus DVD in order to be able to obtain a result that you can enjoy too. 

The show is great and now consists of a solid collection of great-quality songs all well-performed. The range of Elvis’ performance is very wide we go from the rocking with the two classic Polk Salad Annie and Burning Love, the bluesy Steamroller Blues to the dramatic last single Hurt, without forgetting the anthem America and the gospel How Great Song and the autobiographical You Gave Me a Mountain ending with the story of his life Fairytale. However, talking about the best song we like to say that the rockin’ side is still present in Elvis, and Polk Salad Annie never sounded better: both Elvis and the band are pushing strong with Elvis’ swaying arms and karate kicks in complete control of the music.  

This new SR special Product will be housed  in a deluxe 300 grams single sleeve that includes  
together the 150 grams vinyl and Bonus  DVD.  

In order to have a special collector’s item, the 350 copies will be presented with Three  different vinyl color VARIATIONS. All the copies will come with Glossy Sticker hand-numbered and individually sealed and Please remember!! This is a LIMITED HAND NUMBERED set of 350 COPIES.

Update June 10, 2023

SOLD OUT volume 20 is out!!

’Sold Out’ is back, and volume 20 truly contains a wealth of rare and unreleased footage. We know that the ’77 footage is very popular, and included are various films from the spring / summer ‘77 tours. We all know that he was not in the best of shape, but still on a good night he could mesmerize an audience with powerful moments like ‘My Way’.
There are various neat ’77 close-ups, in fact some of the best ever, and it’s also good to see the effort he puts into performances like ‘That’s All Right Mama’ and ‘Are You Lonesome Tonight’, with him accompanying himself on the acoustic. The man still had it. Still, there’s also some rough moments, including the final June ’77 tour, and it’s still heartbreaking to see Elvis in this shape. But it’s all part of the history, and Pyramid has stated right from the outset to document all of it, without sugarcoating anything.
This release is a real ‘smorgasbord’ of Elvis live in the seventies, with especially ’69 to ’72 being well-presented. He is truly the live ultimate performer in these films, in full command, and giving his all. The early concert years were very exciting, and his live show was very physical and dynamic, as you can see in this footage. This release actually marks the first time that we include any ’69 footage, and what an amazing performer he was back then! As someone once remarked: if you didn’t see Elvis in ’69, then you never saw the real Elvis, and the footage included here bears that out. But in its own way the shows from June ’72 were just as good, and performances like ‘You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling’ and ‘How Great Thou Art’ show what a versatile performer he had become by then.
The later years feature plenty of highlights as well, even though the tempos had gone down a notch or two. There’s four films from April 1, 1975 and they are a real delight, as they highlight the fun side of Elvis as a performer, playing around with the audience and having a heck of a time doing so. There’s Memphis ’76, and Forth Worth is a neat and fairly long film - good to see it here without any logos or watermarks. The lesser performances are also included, including silent footage from the notorious Houston ’76 concert, which shows how sluggish he was. And arguably even worse is another (lengthy) film from College Park, where his behavior is odd to say the least, and where he seems to be under the influence of something. We feel that these films are just as important as the good shows, because together they give us a balanced look at Elvis’ live shows in the seventies. And College Park is certainly insightful: the things he said were pretty bizarre, but it’s even more surrealistic to SEE him in that state (‘I love showbidnezz’), while constantly punking Charlie Hodge to adjust his microphone stand. Even after all these years, there’s still something dark and unsettling about moments like this, but again, it’s all part of the Elvis story.
But none of it takes anything away from the magic that the man created every time he made his entrance, whether it was in Las Vegas, Chicago, Fort Worth, Jacksonville, Memphis, Philadelphia or wherever. These films take you back to all these special nights. As always, Pyramid is presenting these films as they were recorded, with no edits or alterations of any kind. These films were carefully restored to remove artifacts that time had added, like discolorization. We believe that it’s important to let these films speak for themselves. Ladies and gentlemen, get ready for the greatest showman there ever was. One a good night, there was no one like him, but even on a lesser night he was still ELVIS. ‘Sold Out volume 20’ tells you that story.

Update May 26, 2023

Out Now, new DVD The February 1977 Tour

Cine8 returns after their very well received release "A Medley Of Costumes" with their second DVD featuring unreleased 8mm footage. While Elvis his first tour of 1977 was a step down in comparison to the great december '76 tour, Elvis still seemed to have the spirit to put on some great shows, while he looked far from his best during the first show, things improved as the tour went on and he started to look much better. This tour often has been overlooked when it comes to footage and so ''The February 1977 Tour'' DVD fills that gap!
On this DVD we've opted to create a watchable DVD consisting of various performances from 7 different shows on this tour, matched with soundboard sound you'll find complete performances of ''Fairytale'' as performed in Charlotte, NC on February 20th, the only version of ''Big Boss Man'', the two versions of ''Blueberry Hill'' Elvis performed on this tour along with the rare ''Where No One Stands Alone'', a rousing version of ''Polk Salad Annie'' and ''It's Now Or Never'' performed on February 16th among other performances, the DVD is rounded out by a few unedited clips, including a rare ''Funny How Time Slips Away'' and a blistering version of ''Hurt'' performed during the very first show of this tour.
Sit back, relax and enjoy this release!

FROM MEMPHIS TO NASHVILLE - Essential Fifties Splices volume two - DELUXE DIGIPACK

The series next volume of the fifties, this time songs from 1953 - 1958.
It starts of with some Sun recordings and most sound very different then released before

The Acetate medley has been compiled from the first 4 tracks Elvis recorded for private use, "Just listen to his voice ladies and gentlemen" 

Blue Moon of Kentucky starts of with the slow version and then gets really going once the master kicks in

You're A Hearbreaker has been edited the intro is different and it really sounds as if we have an alternate take.

Just for fun "Trying To Get To You" has been sped up and sounds like an attempt Elvis could have done.

Tomorrow Night starts of with the original recording and the later 1965 overdubb blends in very nicely, at this moment we leave Memphis and arrive in Nashville

I Was the One has been spliced with all available takes and you can hear Elvis trying out different approaches to the lyrics.

Ain't That Loving You Baby was first released in 1985 but here we have the remastered version not released officially yet.

ELVIS COUNTRY ON STAGE - Meant to be Played Records.

It's been a long time since their last release, but it was worth the wait!
The series delivers discs not for collecting, but (meant to be) playing.

Although most die hard fans will have most (all) of the tracks included , it is a very good collection of Country songs done live and 
one you will be playing more then once.

As a bonus you get some stage rehearsals from 1973 as well as the last country song Elvis ever did;  "I Really Don't Want To Know" taken from his last concert.
(Blue Moon of Kentucky was the first country song Elvis sang live)

The artwork has a nice touch resembling a cool mixture from "Elvis Country" and "On Stage" resulting in ELVIS COUNTRY ON STAGE.

Rags To Riches

Millbranch Music is back with its first release in 2023! After the great success of our recent CD & DVD set “Tampa Wave” we now present a completely new CD & DVD project!

“Rags To Riches – The Original Mono Mixes” is a 2-disc set: The CD includes 20 tracks from Elvis´ June and September 1970 Nashville Recording Sessions, all presented as the original mono mixes in top-notch sound! You may wonder why Elvis´ music was still mixed in mono in 1970. Well, all of Elvis’ 45 RPM singles from those days, almost to the end of 1971, were still being released in mono. Possibly because his releases were coming out of RCA Nashville, and some of the songs were only issued as singles and not so much as LP cuts, and therefore not mixed to stereo. Also, around this time, after a decade of indifference, country music radio started paying attention to Elvis again. Most of his singles from this period made the country charts.

During this period, RCA recording artists Charley Pride, Waylon Jennings, Dolly Parton, Eddy Arnold (and every other C&W artist on RCA) released most of their singles in mono. The first Elvis stereo single in the ‘70s was Merry Christmas Baby/O Come All Ye Faithful from 1971. Promo singles for Elvis´ music continued being released in mono until 1975.

As a matter of fact those single records from 50+ years ago (especially the promos) did have a unique sound which is powered a lot by a great punch. This detail in sound was for sure intended by the producers as it made a great effect when being played by radio stations back then. Still today, collectors are partly buying these promos not only for collecting purposes, but also for playing them on vintage (or new) record players, enjoying “glorious mono sound”.
Now you can enjoy all these great sounding Elvis tracks in glorious mono on this release!
The DVD in our new set has a running time of almost 100 (!!) minutes and we gave it the title “That´s The Way It Is In Motion”. While this is definitely not a re-edit of the original “That's The Way It Is” movie, it is a musical documentary of its own, and represents the album and the songs that appeared on it. And much more! Using higher quality outtakes than ever before with footage that has no watermarks or similar impairments, we are able to present it in the highest possible quality, like you are used from us.

All of the songs on the DVD are newly edited with several different camera angles. You´ll see and hear Elvis having fun rehearsing “You Don´t Have To Say You Love Me” on July 15, 1970 and also doing the tune live at the Opening Night performance on August 10, which has Elvis calling out Sammy Davis Jr.. We also included an interview segment of Sammy Davis Jr. talking about what he saw on stage that night accompanies the clip. A newly edited version of ''I Just Can't Help Believin´'' which goes from rehearsal to live is presented in split screens, using several different angles. Also on this DVD are newly edited performances of ''Make The World Go Away'', ''Polk Salad Annie'', ''I've Lost You'' and ''The Walk Through The Audience'' (which has never been edited properly before).

Added to that are several split-screen performances like ''Heartbreak Hotel'' from the August 12th 1970 Dinner Show and “Bridge Over Troubled Water”. The “Little Sister / Get Back” sit down medley has been edited properly for the first time and is for sure one of the many highlights on our DVD. “Blue Suede Shoes” has been re-edited, despite its appearance in the original movie. This DVD brings you a great experience in going back to Las Vegas in the summer of 1970!
Great times to be an Elvis-Collector! Make sure you´ll get your copy of this brandnew Millbranch Music release at your favorite dealer!

Southbend to Wichita 5 CD Set

In 1974 Elvis had a busy year, coming hot of the heels of yet another but successful engagement in Las Vegas in January/February Elvis went back on tour.

Elvis would do nothing but touring between March & August, with the exception of an engagement in Lake Tahoe in between and when Elvis tried to reinvent his setlist in August for yet another engagement in Las Vegas it turned out to be a failed attempt, the crowd did not seem to like the changes Elvis had made opting to get rid of most of his original material and replacing it with newer material or material he hadn't sang live ever.
After this season Elvis would take rest for two and a half weeks before goin back on tour and giving one of his worst performances in College Park, MD on September 27th and 28th.

This limited 5-disc digipack compiles all available soundboards from the last week of the tour with an Elvis that’s in better form then when he started this tour, this set starts with the show in Southbend, Indiana on October 1st, and ends with the show in Wichita on October 7th 1974, you can enjoy some great and rare versions of ''Promised Land'' ''That's All Right'' ''Until It's Time For You To Go'' a serious ''Why Me Lord'' and stunning versions of ''It's Midnight'' among others.

All the shows have been digitally remastered for the best and most optimal sound quality and this digipack is presented with rare photos taken during this tour.

Also, all available stage rehearsals are featured on this set. Among many others you hear Elvis sing songs like “Never Been To Spain”, “It’s Over”, “It’s Impossible” & “The Impossible Dream”. During the stage rehearsals Elvis sings songs like “Faded Love”, “Any Day Now”, “Something”, “My Babe” & “Until It’s Time For You To Go”.

 2 CD-SET ELVIS – COME WHAT MAY THE LOST 1966 ALBUM (REEL TRAX CDP 3718)
What If…..? Many people, in concerns of music, sports, politics and many more genre´s just love to ask: What If…..? Elvis fans do that as well! So let´s get to the point: What If RCA had released an LP album like our brandnew REEL TRAX release in November of 1966? We don´t know for sure of course, but we assume that the view on Elvis´ career in the Sixties would probably be significantly different. But since this obviously did not happen the way we wish it had, Elvis is mainly being remembered in this decade as a celluloid artist. His last studio album that had nothing to do with “typical” movie songs had been ''Pot Luck'' and it had been released way back in 1962. In the meantime the majority of Elvis´ album releases had clearly been dominated by his movie soundtracks (which showed in releases on singles and EP´s as well – plus we all know that there would have to be that so-called “Lost Album” in ´63 which never had been realized ). It seemed to be a perfect formula to maximize financial success to release movie soundtrack after movie soundtrack. Even considering taking the risk to lose credibility as a performer who once was known as being a “rebel”, a man who changed just about everything in contemporary pop music business only 10 years earlier. Lost Album – Missed opportunity? Tracks 1 – 12 are taken from the forthcoming REEL TRAX vinyl release “Come What May” (LSP 3718), which deals with a so-called “Lost Album” theory for November 1966. All other songs used for this CD release are mainly based on international 45 r.p.m single releases of 1966. While some of the titles are almost common knowledge when it comes to be known as single tracks on Elvis´ official RCA-Label (like “Tell Me Why” and “Blue River” for instance), the “Girl Happy” songs ‘’Do Not Disturb’’ and ‘’Spring Fever’’ have been released that year only on a single in India. The “Paradise Hawaiian Style” LP tracks “Drums Of The Islands”, “This Is My Heaven”, “House Of Sand” and the title track of the movie only showed up on single releases in the Philippines (all on RCA as well).
By the mid-1960´s it was about time to reflect Elvis´ musical career, to think about changes, to have respect for new influences in terms of songs and sounds. History tells us that this most likely never has happened. And still, there were opportunities to bring back some of that old magic from a couple of years earlier. One of those “chances” took its start in May of 1966 when Elvis returned to “Studio B” in Nashville for a recording session with material for two albums! One of them would become a Grammy-Award winning album full of Gospel music (just like in 1960), titled “How Great Thou Art”! The other one could have been similar to the one you hold in your hands now. Elvis was highly motivated to do the sessions and he did a mighty good job on the material which consisted of Gospel songs and well chosen Covers of genres from Folk to Rhythm n´ Blues titles. The ''How Great Thou Art'' LP became a gold album and sure made Elvis very proud of it. But what about the rest of the songs from the sessions in May of 1966? What happened to the possible second album? Well, there was no second album! The songs, which could have been used for another pretty solid “concept” (and therefore artistically much more valuable) album finally appeared on singles and as bonus songs on upcoming soundtrack albums. A big disappointment indeed and again we would like to ask: What if…..? To give it a fresh ambience, the best / most interesting alternate takes for the songs have been chosen. Disc 2 comprises more complete and partly spliced outtakes of the titles from Disc 1. Discover a stand-out and never before released version of the title “God´s Gonna Cut ém Down” (also known as “Run On”) which features a splice of Takes 1 and 6. Also included are the original demos of four songs sung by Bobby "Red " West. Two of them were even written by him!

OFF THE RECORD, WE’RE THE GREATEST VOLUME 1 & 2
2 new CDs with unknown never circulated shows.

 By ELEVATED STAGE SOUND RECORDS

TWO fully unknown Las Vegas shows. Now for first time available.
Elvis is bringing the house down, audience singing along and fans get crazy. And best of all, it’s never been available in any form until now!

We will kick-off with these two unreleased shows simultaneously. It’s the start of our series with rare, exceptional or unreleased recordings and it is housed in “Mini-Gatefold LP format” CD with inner sleeve to distinguish our releases from others with once a while something extra. This will be our house style. So, you know you’ll have the real one.

We cannot release it under our regular label since people might expect the same kind of audio sound which would give a false impression. But we assure you these releases will have the same attention as we normally do.

That’s why we started the brand-new ELEVATED STAGE SOUND RECORDS label so anyone can recognize it instantly by its name and our adapted house style the “Mini Gatefold LP” CDs
We focus on two-mike-, ambiance-, booth- and audience recorded concerts or shows. The selection criteria for us are, never released before, totally unknown or very good sound, ideally would be all three combined into one release! We have to able to enjoy the recording otherwise it has no use releasing it.
Our goal is offering high quality, value for money releases at affordable prices.
Well, now we introduced ourselves let’s get on with the two shows.

We hope it brings you joy that we bring new material and not neglecting rare and beautiful audience recordings. These often capture the essence of an Elvis Show better than a soundboard or Multi track and might surprise you with crazy and funny facts and impressive performances and more banter. The title for these two CDs are literally taken from an advertisement from the seventies by RCA MAGNECTIC TAPE and somehow this suits ELVIS in a cheeky way!

At Better Sound Studio they restored the audio, the recording itself was damaged although a good base. The rarity and the high-quality of the performances made us proceed to achieve a good result. For the purists, we did not remove all noise since it would also remove music detail and loses dynamic of the performance. In overall we tried to get the audio balanced, cleaning up where possible, in some cases it was impossible without degrading the audio, so we left it as it is. We raised the spoken parts to hear Elvis talking which was a challenge at some parts, his banter is fun at times and makes the whole show even better. We consider this a better-quality audience recording despite the limitations of the source tape.

Both CDs are presented in a beautiful “Mini gatefold LP” CD package with inner sleeve and an inside poster. Wrapped in classic Vegas promotion style of 1972. No liner notes since the performances and songs speak for themselves.  We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.

SOLD OUT volume 19 – It’s been worth the long wait!!
We are pleased to announce ”Sold Out volume 19”, which contains three hours of rare Elvis footage live on 8mm film. We all know that 8mm film is not perfect, but it was the medium of the time, and thanks to the efforts by fans we can now see wonderful moments from his shows that would otherwise have been lost forever.
1971 is still in some ways under-documented, and underrated, but on this volume we have footage from 8 different nights in Vegas, which show how physical and dynamic he was. There’s plenty of cool moments, including Elvis throwing out teddy bears during that song, or improvising his way through ‘Jailhouse Rock’. Another rarity on film is him singing ‘I John’ during the ‘Polk Salad Annie’ intro.  These eight films, all documented by the same person, give a very good insight into Elvis’ stage shows at the time.
Elvis gave some of his best shows in Atlanta during the 70’s tours, due to the excitements of the fans there. We have four films from these shows on this release, and in each of them it’s clear that he feels like a fish in the water in Atlanta, and his interaction with the fans is priceless (riding a toy dog, etc). One of the highlights is a cool, funky ‘Polk Salad Annie’. There’s also Memphis footage, as well as two lengthy films from one and the same show, but filmed from different angles (make your own super edit!)… There’s also some of the last footage of Elvis and Red West together, which in light of the subsequent firing and the events after that is moving to see. You also see Elvis introducing his dad, Vernon. His generosity towards the other talent on stage is displayed when he asks The Stamps to do a solo performance.
There are various lovely close-ups, especially in the later footage. December ’76 was a return to form, as is evidenced in the footage on this release. Highlights include a strong ‘Fairytale’, as well as a dramatic knee-drop during ‘How Great Thou Art’. There’s also footage from the final June ’77 tour, including a fantastic ‘I Really Don’t Want To Know’. Despite everything else that was going on in his life at the time, the man could still SING. Outstanding stuff.
All the footage is presented as it was originally filmed, with no edits or other manipulations done. All we did was a careful restoration of the footage. This is another superb release that gives you the REAL Elvis, with plenty of great moments. Put this in your player and get transported back to the magic of Elvis live in the seventies. Order your copy today!

Straight Arrow Special Products SA/SP 2023-68-02

Straight Arrow is very pleased to bring you, as a first for the label, concert from January / February 1971 season: The Las Vegas February 19, 1971 Midnight Show. This concert was previously released 13 years ago in very bad sound quality on “SETTING THE SEASON” 2CD. Straight Arrow was fortunate enough to obtain recently recovered 1st generation copy of the original reel to reel audience-recorded tape of this show, coming from collection of British fan Rex Martin. This historic concert was never before available in good sound quality - until now! Every second was enhanced to achieve the optimal listening experience. The sound was remastered to the correct speed. If you have enjoyed our previous 1971 CDs, we believe that you will love this one as well. Ask your local CD vendor for audio teasers!

Presented in the usual Straight Arrow fashion with the top notch digipak including the photos of Elvis in Las Vegas 1971 and local press reviews, this new release is another beauty that you must not miss! The Straight Arrow team is always looking for new, unreleased audience-taped shows and for better quality versions of the previously released recordings. If you have such unique tapes, even damaged or broken, do not hesitate to contact us through your local dealer!

“A STUDY OF ELVIS PRESLEY’ IN CONCERT” A thesis of the TV-special.

BOOK/CD/DVD/Blu-Ray.

 

The book contains 136 pages thesis with many beautiful related photos, interviews and documents with extended information about “the tv-special”.  To support the thesis, we had to include footage of the aired European TV-Special broadcast and a behind the scenes interview and four clips to support the thesis.
All multimedia material is available on the net, YouTube, forums and other dedicated sites, etc., but for easy access we’ve collected them in one place and edited it to follow the story line of the book. We tried to use the best quality multimedia available to us.
Every effort has been made to debunk accepted “facts”. Putting facts in the right perspective as should have been done years ago.
The question why we’ve made a book instead of an internet publication?  It’s simple, you can pick it up and show it directly to anyone who comes along with old mis interpreted facts.
This book will help Elvis fans explain and the media to correct their opinion when reviewing Elvis’ last TV special or concerts of his years. Anyone should pay the respect Elvis deserves for his showmanship and the genius which he really was.

Elvis In Concert is a historical document. It has to be seen and listened to, so someone can understand the full Elvis story. It’s the Shakespearean final act of a great life. ­­ Perhaps he said it best himself in a 1961 interview with Lloyd’ Shearer. ‘Cut Me and I Bleed.’
We do hope that it sets of an idea to bring out a massive release which justifies Elvis in his later years.
Right now you hold a rare study of Elvis Presley in concert, a plead and thesis in your hands.
The audio and footage are additional and limited in quantity. For quality and durability, we choose pressing in 24 carat gold when possible. All our sources are mentioned in the book for even more in-depth reading.

The audio on the cd is remastered and re-arranged according to the original setlist of Rapid City to have the full concert experience how it develops it to the climax moments of the show of which we refer to in the thesis. Fan comments were removed and “Unchained melody” is added.  The footage is on DVD and Blu-ray (Same content in higher resolution.) Note: The clip of “I Really Don’t Want To Know “was our first test for the high quality audio presentation only. We included it as a bonus. See the book for more detail.


The songs in order of appearance:
Also, Sprach Zarathustra/Opening Riff /See See Rider /I Got A Woman /Amen /That’s All Right /Are You Lonesome Tonight?/Love Me/Fairytale/Little Sister/If You Love Me (Let Me Know)/You Gave Me A Mountain /And I Love You So /Jailhouse Rock /How Great Thou Art /O Sole Mio / It’s Now Or Never /Trying To Get To You/Hawaiian Wedding Song /(Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear/Don’t Be Cruel/My Way /Early Morning Rain /What’d I Say /Johnny Be Goode /I Really Don’t Want To Know /Hurt /Hound Dog /Unchained Melody/Can’t Help Falling In Love /Closing Riff.

Please note, the number of copies is limited. The book is ONLY available from fan clubs and exclusive Elvis dealers and intended for research NOT for mainstream release.

‘SOLD OUT volume 1’ totally revamped -- and now available.
Iconic game-changing release now finally redone with improved quality & artwork.
Strictly limited edition.

Upon its initial release in December 2020, ”Sold Out volume 1” caused quite a furor in the Elvis world. And for many, it opened the doors to a new area of collecting. Some of the high-end collectors were dismayed with the fact this footage ‘escaped’, but many fans were thrilled that these unique 8mm films were now available to them at an affordable price.
We’ve gone back to the original high-resolution transfers to redo this classic title from scratch. No more watermarks or logos on the footage, what you get here is the best 8mm footage around in the best possible quality. No alterations, no edits – just the real deal, as originally filmed. Each of the 19 films has been newly mastered with superior results. This remains the most enjoyable release celebrating The King live, as captured on 8mm.
We have received numerous requests recently to reissue this classic title, which is now going for crazy prices in the Elvis world. Hence, we are pleased to announce this complete revamp of ‘Sold Out volume 1’.
We do realize that now that 8mm footage is suddenly being offered everywhere, that it can be confusing for some to figure out what is essential --and what is not --, but many would agree that this title is all you really need. This is really the best of the best. And for the first time, the liner notes tell the inside story behind this game-changing release, with an account that will shock and surprise some of you.
We are already receiving quite a few pre-orders for this Deluxe Edition, which is printed in a very limited edition, and we expect that it will sell out fast. Packaged in a deluxe three-panel digipack, this truly is the cat’s pyjamas. Now available!

Two Nights In Binghamton

Out now is a new 2-CD release from the BJ Records label with the title “Two Nights In Binghamton” featuring the May 26 & 27th, 1977 shows in Binghamton.  
Back in 1999 the Coast To Coast label released the CD ''Why Me, Lord'' featuring the May 26th 1977 concert in Binghamton, NY.
While in reasonable sound at the time, it was released in much better sound the following year on the Krypton Label, both of these releases showed that there were still nights where Elvis could pull it off and leave a mesmerizing performance when the moment was right, it took until 2006 for the second show to become available on the Graceland Records label under the name ''Second Night'' that release showed us that Elvis did not run out of steam after the previous night, if anything he was giving even more during the second show! Just listen to one of the best versions of ''Unchained Melody'' as Elvis pours his heart out.

The two Binghamton shows are a good example of some of those special moments where Elvis got it together, Elvis performs a varied setlist with a couple of songs that hadn't been performed very often at the time, this includes the last live version of Kris Kristofferson's ''Why Me, Lord'', Simon & Garfunkel's ''Bridge Over Troubled Water'' and even ''Blue Suede Shoes'' and ''Heartbreak Hotel'' were performed whilst not a standard anymore at the time, it made for a nice surprise!
BJ Records felt it was time to re-release these two shows because of their historic place in representing Elvis his final year of performing on stage, with the original releases out of print we've put both shows together in a neat package, this allows older and newer fans to have both shows in the same place, while also enjoying the improved sound quality.
This digipack has been filled with some great photos of Elvis taken during these two shows, and newspaper reviews.  It’s a very limited edition set, go get your copy right now!

Some overdubs took place at the MGM Sound Stage in Hollywood California 2 weeks later. The sessions resulted in 11 master recordings of which 9 were used in the movie. Wisdom of the ages & Animal Instinct were featured as bonus tracks on the soundtrack lp.

experience possible and makes you think it is a new show with rare behind the scenes footage included.

One of the highlights (although short) is when the camera gets behind the stage, it is just like
you are looking through Elvis' eyes when he climbs the stairs just before we see him entering the stage.

This short moment will leave every Elvis fan with goosebumbs without a doubt!

Before the show starts we get portions of the press conferences including rare pictures.
After that we will see the landing on Hawaii through different sources, combined it gives a whole new "feel"
focussing on Elvis only instead of the island, we even see the Helicopter leave while Elvis drives off in the jeep.

Of course the "after show" songs are also included and they are where the should be, at the end and they do not spoil the show.
Here you will see the original clips, combined with the new outtakes and again it gives you the idea as if it is totally new.

Shooting Star In Largo

Following the remarkable success of our „THE MOON IS FALLING“ CD, it is time to move on to yet another exciting project. Straight Arrow is pleased to announce this new 2CD set, featuring two concerts from the June 1976 Bicentennial tour, in topnotch audience recorded quality.

As all die-hard fans know 1976 was a somewhat problematic year for Elvis, nevertheless the June concerts from Largo are examples of really solid Presley performances, with The King sounding clear and enthusiastic and most important - in good voice.

It is worth mentioning that Elvis met Elton John prior to his evening show in Largo. Before he left, the British singer asked Elvis to sing „Heartbreak Hotel” (which Elvis did), and informed him that his parents would also be in the audience. Elton and Presley said goodbye cordially and Elton was escorted once again to his seat in the arena, but not without posing for a picture with an illustrious fan: Lisa Marie, the daughter of his idol.

Both shows were taken directly from recently found original audience-recorded master tapes and they were recorded by a famous photographer of many Elvis 70s concerts, American superfan Harold Jean Newton (July 23, 1939 - June 10, 2009). These historic concerts were never before available in the good sound quality - until now!

The June 27th, 1976, 2:30pm show was previously released on CD called „BELTWAY TO LARGO“ (2002) from an inferior and slightly incomplete source. The July 27th 8:30pm show is previously unreleased. Every second was enhanced to achieve the optimal listening experience. The sound was remastered to the correct speed. If you have enjoyed our previous 1976 releases i.e. „ONONDAGA NIGHTS“ 2CD, we believe that you will love this one as well. Ask your local CD vendor for teasers!

This special release is presented in de-luxe double digipack, accompanied with local press review. All images used for this project were taken on stage during Elvis' 1976 Largo concerts.Photos from June 27th 8:30pm are black and white and they are rare. A couple of them have been added in spite of the problematic quality, for historic reasons.

Elvis worked hard during this last Tahoe season in spite has not been an impressive vision He fought very hard to deliver a good show.

Update November 20, 2022

 

Millbranch Music is back with its second release in 2022! After the overwhelming success of our recent CD & DVD set “From Sea To Shining Sea” we were able to obtain more new and great 8mm footage plus a first generation audience recording from Elvis´ April 1975 tour!

“Tampa Wave” is a 2-disc set: The CD includes Elvis´ full performance of the evening show in Tampa, Florida (April 26, 1975), taken from the original tape which has been recorded by a by then “experienced” fan who had a great seat in the 5th row - and his recording equipment with him! For our last two releases we have worked strictly with soundboard recordings, but since the Tampa show we got the original tape of is really a very good audience recording with a lot of information regarding the excitement of the crowd in the rather small building Elvis played in (7.500 in attendance), we decided to work with it on our brandnew project. After all, Elvis-Fans would miss a lot if there were no audience recordings - some of them sound probably even better than quite a few “dry” sounding SB´s - but that will always stay a matter of audible taste of course.
The DVD in our new set has a running time of almost 100 (!!) minutes and includes rare and high-quality 8mm-footage of the Tampa evening show from April 26, 1975 (the same as you can hear on the CD) and more impressions from the same tour with the concerts in Lakeland, FL (Evening show from April 27 and the show from April 28) and Atlanta from May 1st. As a VERY special bonus the DVD contains an absolutely stunning performance from Elvis´ concert in Richfield, filmed at his magnificent July 75´ tour (July 18). The quality and length of the material we invested a lot of money in recently will blow you away! You will get 53 (!!) minutes from this show which is almost 80% of the whole performance.
Especially in the last two years, there have been a lot of releases which have shown some great 8mm footage on DVD. We appreciate this development because it makes it possible for fans to get a good look at what Elvis Presley concerts were like all through the 1970s and not only at the time-frames of TTWII, Elvis On Tour, Aloha From Hawaii and Elvis In Concert, where Elvis-Fans can watch professional material of for many years already. In the last couple of years more and more of the old private film-reels which seem to have remained hidden since the 1970´s showed up - reels that have been copied over and over and later put on rather bad video cassettes which have also been copied and copied over and over again, losing so much information with each ongoing copy. Nowadays, it is possible to work with those reels from back then, getting great results in terms of picture quality (at least in quite big parts) so we can see Elvis in all its glory on almost every tour and every Las Vegas engagement he did and taste a bit of the excitement from way back 45+ years ago.

Great times to be an Elvis-Collector! Make sure you´ll get your copy of our brandnew Millbranch release at your favorite dealer!

SOLD OUT VOLUME 18
Wintertime is nearing, and the temperature is dropping. But fortunately, there’s always “Sold Out” to keep us all warm. And the new volume # 18 is once again chock-full of footage that will get your temperature risin’! The joy of seeing Elvis live in concert is something that most of us never got to experience, but this remarkable series takes you back to the concert years with rare & unreleased 8mm films that put you right in the audience. With the highly collectable “Sold Out” series, fans are getting the definitive collection of Elvis on 8mm in a comprehensive and entertaining way, presented in gorgeous digipacks with relevant photos and liner-notes by Elvis’ musicians and fans who filmed the shows. To own, and to enjoy always.
Pyramid has already released 50 hours of footage, and this new volume contains three more hours, this time focusing on the period 1973 – 1976. There are so many cool and delightful moments, that it’s hard to pick them all out. ‘Steamroller Blues’ is one of the hottest versions ever, with Elvis striking a kick-ass karate pose right from the get-go, and a fan getting so excited that she virtually assaults him! Or another clip where Elvis looks with amazement as he asks the houselights to be turned up, and then commenting: “It’s a long way from Ellis Auditorium in Memphis, J.D.”, no doubt referring to the gospel shows that he attended as a youngster. There’s also various memorable moments in the ’75 footage, including a powerful version of ‘You Gave Me A Mountain’ with different phrasing.
The clips on this volume are long, and really give you the feel of being there at an Elvis show. There’s close-up footage from 1976 with Elvis in solid form. At one point he curls those famous lips, and he jokingly says that it’s like, “I have a fish hook in my mouth!”. This volume also documents the brief revival in late ’76, with Elvis looking slimmer and sounding really good. ‘Hurt’ is one of the highlights and cuts through the air like a razorblade! Pyramid takes pride in presenting these 8mm films as they were originally filmed, with the restoration focusing on respecting the history of these remarkable films, and not altering it. No edits, no cuts, no manipulations…. Just the real deal: the be-all, end-all record of the 8mm footage filmed during the concert years. From the great highs to the sad lows… it’s all there, and it’s all Elvis. This series shows without any doubt why he will always be the greatest performer ever; the man was born to sing.

LIVE EXPERIENCE IN VEGAS FEBRUARY 1971
February 21, 1971 Midnight Show

(text kindly lended from “BOOTLEG ELVIS”)

Not even half a year had passed since Presley’s triumphant summer festival in bright light city, during which a good part was filmed for the upcoming documentary ‘That’s The Way It Is’. In the meantime, two highly successful and thrilling short tours, the first ones since 1957, brought the legendary performer back to many fans’ doorsteps all across the nation. Coming back to Las Vegas for his fourth month-long run in the short time span of only one and a half years, it became apparent to the close observer that the Memphis singer was bored already. Too lazy to care much about an updated repertoire, all the audience got was a rehash of his earlier appearances with two exceptions; Most shows, partially due to the star catching the flu, ran only about half as long as during the previous engagement and some closed with a new song – The Impossible Dream – a beautiful Mitch Leigh composition from the tony award winning 1965 musical The Man Of La Mancha. To be fair, we have to say that even with some shows only running around 35 to 40 minutes , Elvis , as bored as he might have been at times, infused them with a good deal of his humor and vocal power, still leaving the audience in awe. It might be of interest to the serious Presley scholar that it was during this engagement that a new orchestral theme was inaugurated. The resounding horns of Richard Strauss’ Also Sprach Zarathustra would from now on herald the arrival of the King to the concert stage. If you want to relive the magic and excitement of Elvis in Las Vegas, this superbly packaged and good sounding album is your invitation to the showroom of the International Hotel. Enjoy the show.

Radio Recorders™   proudly presents the following new release:

Well, It's Christmas Time Pretty Baby: Songs Of Christmas
Radio Recorders™

Elvis' fourth studio album was released in October 1957 and was titled "Elvis' Christmas Album". The album was a very clever move by Elvis' record company. Probably the Colonel also had his (big) part in this commercial masterpiece. The foldout sleeve contained a full sized 12 page booklet containing some very handsome pictures shot during the filming of "Jailhouse Rock". So this album was really something for everybody. According to the Record Industry Association Of America the album along with its reissues is the best selling Christmas album of all time. All original new tracks were recorded at the Radio Recorders studio in Hollywood .

Radio recorders™  brings you a fully packed CD containing 27 masters & alternate tracks from the sessions plus bonus tracks. Some highlights are the outtakes of "peace in the valley" & "it is no secret" taken from the original binaural tapes, these include some nice studio banter and are not released before in this quality.  Previous releases offered a very weak sound for these.

All recordings on this compact disc are carefully restored and remastered. They never sounded better, it’s like you are right there in the studio.

Blowin' In The Wind

 Reel-Trax proudly presents: ‘Blowin´ In The Wind’ – twenty-one really great tracks that will blow you away! Remasters, remixes, new edits plus a selection of original recordings that will offer you a totally new listening experience.
‘Blowin´ In The Wind’ offers you songs like the home recording of ‘Fools Rush In’ that now almost sounds like a crystal clear studio recording. Also revealed on this album for the first time is that what is noted on the ‘From Elvis In Nashville’ Boxset as a jam version of ‘Mystery Train’, could actually very well be a slower version of ‘See See Rider’. The next to last song is the unique live recording of ‘Where No One Stands Alone’. This version now comes with new overdubs in a similar vein as ‘Unchained Melody’. This and much more is to be discovered on this great new album on the Reel-Trax label.
An entirely new listening experience – you should not miss it! Get your copy now!
Let´s go deeper into some essential tracks of the CD:

Fools Rush In: This record gets kicked off with the Frank Sinatra inspired arrangement of ''Fools Rush In'', Nelson Riddle and his Orchestra accompanied Sinatra on his 1960 recording. Elvis is singing to the 1959 Album '''Sing A Song With Riddle'' and does the same for ''It's A Sin To Tell A Lie''. Both versions are unique and one can only imagine what it would have sounded like if Elvis had done these in a studio with these arrangements.
Similarly, Elvis also sings with a different record featuring instrumentals this time - ''Sing A Song With The Kingston Trio''. However, this does not actually feature the group but is rather a tribute to the group's music and has instrumental recreations of their hits. Elvis and his group of friends decided to sing to ''500 Miles'' and ''Blowin´ In The Wind'', these songs are now newly mixed for optimum sound quality, blending the home recording with the actual recording from the record.
''Beyond The Reef'' is the overdubbed master and conveys the same feeling as the other songs on this CD. It is the rejected single master.

While the song ''Almost'' was a studio recording, Elvis´ lonesome and weary vocal combined with touching piano playing makes for a fine addition to the classical feel of this record.
''What Now My Love'' can almost be considered a totally different song, with none of the later bombastic arrangement. We have Elvis and his group singing along to some fun piano playing in a more uptempo beat as opposed to the dramatic version that would later be one of the highlights on his ''Aloha From Hawaii'' record, while ''Suppose'' was a test recording for an Elvis session. It was later decided to use the home recording vocal for the eventual master which was overdubbed. Here we have a undubbed version.
''Tennessee Waltz'' is a re-created version, which has been overdubbed and re-edited. The reason for this is because the whole song gets spoiled by Elvis laughing and joking and we tried to make a much more serious version here – listen to the result!
''See See Rider'' is another imagining of what could have been. When released in 2020 on ''From Elvis In Nashville'', it was wrongly listed as ''Mystery Train''. If you pay attention and listen closely, you can obviously hear it's ''See See Rider'' and the proof is right here, as a Live Vocal was mixed onto the instrumental. This is the closest to a 1970 studio version you will find.
''Don't Cry Daddy'' and ''In The Ghetto'' are both special overdubbed versions showing more of the beauty of Elvis his vocal.

01 - Fool's Rush In (Elvis singing along with a Nelson Riddle LP album)

(It's Fun) Having Elvis On Stage - REGION FREE  Factory Pressed dvd
Limited to 500 copies!

A brandnew STAR dvd is out now, and it is just the thing the fans have been waiting for!

Lots and lots of footage has been released in the last months, great stuff to collect, but it is simply no fun watching it due to bad edits, out of synch sound or both.

STAR has used some of the best performances out there and combined them into a great new release.
Most of these performances are complete, the ones that are not have been put in very nicely for you to enjoy.

We see and hear Elvis do lots of great songs including rarities like "I'm Leavin' ", "Bosom Of Abraham/You Better Run" and "Big Boss Man" 

Not only do we get great songs from soundboard, some tracks even have MULTI TRACK audio, like "Fairytale" (Spring Tours) it is a great version and you can see and hear Elvis frustration at the end when there is a problem with the mike, he runs over to Charlie and throws the damn thing on the ground, you can hear it fall.

Other Multitrack recordings included are:
 "If You Love Me" (Spring Tours), "That's All Right/Proud Mary" (MSG Evening) "Heartbreak Hotel/I’ve Lost You/Love Me Tender/Words/Sweet Caroline" (August 1970)

The STAR team also wanted to show in this release Elvis connection with the crowd, funny moments, getting gifts etc, to give you the total "Elvis Experience"
Including performances from different tours and years.

It really shows "It's fun having Elvis on Stage" 

A total of 33 tracks and some bonustracks will blow you away!

Behind The Curtain - Out Now

Back in 1997 the 2001 Label released the first issue of the January 26, 1972 opening show on soundboard, a revelation at the time as little was known about Elvis first engagement that year, so you can only imagine what thrill this unreleased soundboard brought to fans all over the world, then in 2008 the Audionics label decided to release it in better sound this time for those that couldn't get the old CD anymore.
At Next Generation Records we feel enough time has passed that we can re-release this show as our debut release, especially as 2022 marks the 50th anniversary of the show taking place, with an official release not happening we decided to go back to the original tape and carefully master the show from scratch, now presenting the show the way it meant to sound, with a punchy full sound not heard before, giving younger fans the opportunity to get this show and older fans to get the show in the best possible sound without having to look very far!.

This show is historic on its own as it marks the first time a very different Elvis show was presented to the audience, outside of some brand new outfits, gone was ''That's All Right'' as an opening song which kicked of Elvis' career and instead Elvis would now open with ''See See Rider'', a song he had sung two years earlier mid-show and was released on his classic ''On Stage'' Album.
New songs were added that Elvis had not performed before including the Three Dog Nights tune ''Never Been To Spain'', Elvis' latest 45RPM Single ''Until It's Time For You To Go'' and bringing a song from his back catalogue by including ''A Big Hunk 'O Love'', a song never performed live before, despite having been recorded back in 1958, Elvis showed his patriotism by including Mickey Newbury's ''An American Trilogy'' and it would leave a lasting impression.
The true fan knows how important this show was and is to the Elvis Presley story, with this release we hope to provide you a brand new listening experience, some rare bonus tracks from the 1972 recorded multi-tracks have been included to close out the disc which we are sure you'd enjoy.
This is a jewel case release that's presented with a 16 page booklet with information, rare newspaper reviews, eye witness reviews and some unpublished super-rare photos taken during this season!

Get it now and be sure you don't miss ''Elvis: Behind The Curtain''

The Moon Is Falling

Straight Arrow Special Products SA/SP 2022-66-02

Straight Arrow has released quite a few of Elvis Summer '73 headline shows, however, the opening and closing performances were always remarkable events and this one is no exception! "Also Sprach Zarathustra" was played in famous Eumir Deodato arrangement. Elvis performed the "Trouble" from the "King Creole" movie for the first time since his "68' Comeback" and blended it with his forthcoming single record "Raised On Rock". Elvis surprised his audience with another rarity, "Memphis Tennessee" and the premiere of "My Boy", which was recorded later in December 1973 and released on another hit single in January 1975. He often performed this song during this season, but only seldom after that.

When the "American Trilogy" began, a round projection screen has descended and Elvis was turning and seeing it but obviously not expecting it, saying "Good God, the moon is falling. Wish they'd tell me these things." They showed slides of Abraham Lincoln, the declaration of independence and the American eagle. Elvis was obviously not comfortable with it and that was the only night the "moon" was used.  

The Las Vegas, August 6th, 1973 Opening Night was previously released by Peaf (1993, "FIRE IN VEGAS" CD) and later in clearer, but flat sound by Memory Records (2008, "RAISED ON VEGAS" CD). The sound, nevertheless, was still far from the best. Straight Arrow was fortunate enough to obtain two independent tapes of this concert which are not in circulation (one of them from Rex Martin personal collection). For this ultimate release both tapes were combined to get the best possible result. Every second was enhanced to achieve the optimal listening experience. The sound was remastered to the correct speed. If you have enjoyed our previous Summer of '73 season CDs, we believe that you will love this one as well. Ask your local CD vendor for teasers!

Presented in the usual Straight Arrow fashion with the top notch digipak including the photos of Elvis in Summer of '73, excerpts from "World-Wide Elvis News Service" magazine and reprint of souvenir menu, this new release is the beauty that you must not miss!

Tracklist:

01. Introduction: Also Sprach Zarathustra (Eumir Deodato arrangement) - 02. C. C. Rider - 03. Trouble (1st live version) - 04. Raised On Rock (only live version) - 05. Love Me - 06. Steamroller Blues - 07. What Now My Love - 08. Blue Suede Shoes - 09. Memphis Tennessee - 10.

SOLD OUT 17 - OUT NEXT WEEK!

Now that you’ve seen the Luhrmann movie, it’s time to see the real Elvis again! And you get plenty of that on “Sold Out volume 17”. Once again we’ve amassed three hours of rare 8mm footage from concerts ranging from 1970 to ’76, and again there are plenty of surprises, even for hardcore fans. 
We know that the July ’75 shows are a big favorite, and we have found a 25-minutes from one of the shows early on in that tour. His voice was unbelievable, and the energy levels at these shows were amazing. It’s always cool to see him joke with the band, like Voice (“I call them a lot of things!”), and his interaction with the female members of the audience shows us again why he is still remembered so fondly. High energy versions of songs like ‘Big Boss Man’ and ‘Burning Love’ are some of the highlights.
There’s also three films from the December ’76 tour, and once again he was brimming with energy. The Atlanta footage especially is great to see. You really get the feel of a great Elvis Presley show. The audience goes apeshit! Elvis even includes rarities like ‘Such A Night’ and ‘Reconsider Baby’, as well as a spirited ‘That’s All Right Mama’, the latter two while accompanying himself on the acoustic. His stance and attitude during the last song especially captures the very essence of rock & roll… He’s cooler than a fridge here! At the other end of the spectrum, there’s a lackluster Vegas ’75 performance where he’s clearly not into it.  But that too is part of the history, and even in those situations he could still surprise people with a masterful performance of a song like ‘My Boy’.
There’s also two interesting pre-show clips, which show the band tuning their instruments, Al Dvorin testing his microphone, Charlie Hodge center stage and more. This is a lot of fun to see, and it really gives you the feeling of being there, moments before the concert. You can almost sense the excitement that people felt at the time. Elvis’ girlfriend Linda Thompson is also visible in the footage.
From 1973, there’s neat footage of him performing in the Aloha outfit. It’s interesting to note that he is far more dynamic that during the Aloha show. By this time, he had developed a routine for ‘Steamroller Blues’, which brought forth a lot of screams from the ladies in the audience! ‘American Trilogy’ is performed with lots of passion by Elvis, and at one point he is actually marching to the beat. Goosebumps! There’s much more to enjoy on the new “Sold Out”, way too much to list all of it here. All we can say is: Get it today!
If you are interested, you can get a copy from TMAHM Webshop.

From Sea To Shining Sea

 MILLBRANCH MUSIC is back on track after receiving raving reviews for our 2021 mega-release “Kansas City ´74 Revisited”. And we nail it again with a great concept of “Music & Video” in one set! We have worked for months to make sure that our latest product corresponds to the high standard we set ourselves.
The result is that we are now able to present a new 3-Disc (+ 1) Digipack release for every serious “Elvis live in the 70´s” – collector! If you liked our last years release, you will like this new one, too!
Introducing our latest “Soundboard” release on the “MBM” label here are three complete shows by Elvis and his exciting group of musicians from 1976 on audio cd. That alone would give a nice listen but hey, there is one more disc in this set and that is for sure the cream of the crop: 134 Minutes of rare and in big parts unreleased (!) film footage in never before seen stunning quality of Elvis´ concert journey “from sea to shining sea” between two historic New Years Eve performances in 1976. Which means in detail, that we are telling the story of the “Elvis On Tour” bicentennial year on stage and even while travelling!

Taken from the very best available sources (including a lot of footage taken from original film-reels) you´ll see highlights from his concerts in Pontiac, MI – Johnson City, TN (featuring the very first live version of “Hurt”) – Charlotte, NC – Largo, MD - Hartford, CT – Chicago, IL – Birmingham, AL - Atlanta, GA and Pittsburgh, PA, with very special and lengthy features of his concerts in Fort Worth, TX (June 3), Philadelphia, PA (June 28) and Anaheim, CA (November 30).
Over the last years we did invest in a lot of original film-reels. Early this year we had the opportunity to invest in one of Elvis´ Fort Worth performance
(June 3, 1976) – and so we did. The 30 minutes of pleasantly steady and pretty close to the stage filmed footage has been for sure worth every dollar we have spent on it. The film-reel has then been scanned in 4K Ultra HD resolution, just to make sure that we can extract as much detail as possible from the analogue film. The outcome of the scan has then been carefully processed to retrieve the best possible result from the originally a bit overexposed film. If you compare the starting material and the end result after processing with the best available technology you would not believe how much of information still is there in the original film which of course had to be worked on carefully (and time-consuming) to finally enjoy it as not even the guy who filmed it back then could. So you can expect something special from this – and also this is the main reason why we chose to put Elvis´ two 1976-Concert dates in Fort Worth as the main part of the audio on two of the cd´s. And there is a third cd that is presented in its own sleeve outside of the digi-pack – a so-called “Bonus CD”: Anaheim, CA from November 30, 1976 has been chosen as this concert has its own special feature on the DVD included.

Talking about audio: We have decided already last year with our first “Soundboard” release, that we are using today´s technical possibilities to get out the very best of those treasured “old” tapes. So, again we have used all of our experience and knowledge plus professional equipment to make sure the audio sounds more balanced and clearer than ever before. Needless to say that speed issues are a thing of the past. While processing this, it even turned out to become Stereo! Give it a listen and you will hear what we mean – you will enjoy it!
Don´t waste any minute and make sure to order it while you can from your local dealer! Ask for samples!

ELVIS FOR YOU

RD 7586 Elvis For You (the album that never was)

Back in June of 1964 The Elvis Monthly reported that this album was due at any time & also listed the 10 tracks that would be featured.

This would contain the tracks from Loving You (which by then was deleted) + the added bonus songs Summer Kisses, Winter Tears & Flaming Star as the latter 2 songs had not yet been issued in the U.K.

Once again in 1964 The Elvis Monthly reported the release 
date unknown but possibly September or the latest October of that year (this never happened).

In the April of 1965 Albert Hand (The Elvis Monthly Editor / Owner) reported that he had received a demo copy of the RD 7586 album with another 2 added songs making it a 12 track album, the added 2 songs were Are You Lonesome Tonight & It’s Now Or Never.

On release the album was issued only this time it was as RD 7723 Flaming Star & Summer Kisses, also worth noting there was never an SF (stereo) version of this.

Later a Decca engineer had a few demo albums he wanted to sell, G.I Blues / 2 Single sided LP’s from Blue Hawaii & the RD 7586 Elvis For You.  Now you can enjoy the album that never was. It's the cd version of the album that never was.

We hope you enjoy this anomaly.

UNIQUE 8MM FOOTAGE ON ‘SOLD OUT volume 16’ – AVAILABLE NOW.

‘Sold Out volume 16’ is out this week, and it contains some of the rarest and most incredible Elvis 8mm footage you’ve ever seen! There are several genuine surprises on this volume, which we believe is one of the best of the entire series. This includes ultra-rare footage from the summer ’73 and ’74 Las Vegas engagements.
There’s films from seven shows from the ’74 engagement alone, which demonstrate what a remarkable engagement this was. Elvis looks good and his performances are energetic, and his outfits like the Tiger, the Blue Eagle and the white leather outfits look spectacular on him. The big songs from the season are there, including ‘It’s Midnight’ and ‘If You Talk In Your Sleep’. And his interplay with the audience is, as always, a true highlight. There’s also 8mm footage from various shows from Summer Festival ’73, all superb concerts with Elvis in solid form and good humour. His stageside banter is, once again, a delight. Various songs here are exclusive to this season, including a menacing ‘Trouble’ as well as the incredibly rare, one-off performance of ‘Make The World Go Away’ (and what a lovely version it is!).
But that’s not all. There’s also several really good films from the ’72 and ’73 tour concerts, and they are an essential watch. There’s much to enjoy here, including a rocking ‘Johnny B. Goode’ (neat harmonies with Charlie Hodge on this one), a tender ‘For The Good Times’ and a tentative ‘Burning Love’, with Elvis still unsure of the lyrics. Another significant film is the Los Angeles ’74 film, which gives you a front seat at one of EP’s best shows of that year. He’s in top form, and he looks spectacular in his Peacock suit. Various nice close-ups in this 30+ minute film. And yes, even the ultra-rare ‘You Can Have Her’, performed only once live in concert, is there! The December 1975 footage is another highlight on this release, and it includes the best version ever of ‘How Great Thou Art’!
‘Sold Out volume 16’ is an essential addition to your collection. You can order this from : TMAHM Webshop

(Seemingly) Non-Stop Summer

Sunday, August 25th, 1974 Midnight Show, Las Vegas Hilton, Las Vegas, NV.
Straight Arrow Special Products SA/SP 2022-65-02
Since the launch of the Straight Arrow Label in the year 2005 many interesting concert sound tracks of Elvis’ 1974 have come into the light. And we are pleased to bring to you yet another concert show by Elvis, performed just before the cancellation of the shows scheduled for August 26th. Elvis was feeling under the weather at that time, he had a fever and on advice from his personal physician he took a short bed rest. To no surprise the sensation seeking journalists immediately blamed Elvis’ condition on a drug use. Elvis was obviously hurt and upset and as soon as he had recovered, he addressed these speculations sincerely, bluntly and publicly right from the stage. You are about to enjoy his last performance before „the collapse“. There is no intention to claim that Elvis’ health was rock solid and without issues. However, immerse yourselves in our unique recording from that very night and make your own opinion. An unexpected exhaustion of the King put a halt to the never-ending chain of his summer concerts in 1974. Just on August 27th he was back in the Hilton hotel showroom as a star.

The Las Vegas, August 25th, 1974 Midnight Show is previously unreleased in any form. Straight Arrow was fortunate enough to obtain an early generation copy of the original audience-recorded cassette. Every second was enhanced to achieve the optimal listening experience. If you have enjoyed our previous summer of ’74 season CDs, we believe that you will love this one as well. Ask your local CD vendor for teasers! Presented in the usual Straight Arrow fashion with the top notch digipak including photos of Elvis in leather “Mermaid Jumpsuit” from August of ’74, this new release is the beauty that you must not miss! The Straight Arrow team is always looking for new, unreleased audience-taped shows and for improved versions of the previously released recordings. If you have such unique tapes, even damaged or broken, do not hesitate to contact us through your local dealer.

THE 1971 SOUNDBOARD COLLECTION & MORE volume 2  

This comprehensive deluxe set contains three fantastic sounding soundboard  recordings. Two were recorded during his first Vegas season in 1971 & one was recorded during his one and only live performance in Boston, Massachusetts. After finishing the closing show at the International Hotel (featured on this set) Elvis had a three week break until his first recording session of the year. This one day recording session in March 1971  resulted in one track being released on the Grammy-winning album “He Touched Me” and some cuts being released in 1972 on the “Elvis Now” and “Elvis” (Fool) album. The real studio work began in May & June of 1971. Following these recording sessions Elvis went back on tour again in July 1971. Sadly, no soundboard recordings of these shows have surfaced to date. The Boston recording is the very first high-quality recording of a tour show. With a capacity of just over 15,000 Elvis had to play 7 shows in Las Vegas to reach the same amount of visitors. Obviously a show this big creates a complete different ambiance. 

This limited edition boxset is now available in a red and blue vinyl edition.

Elvis The Dream Project CD Edition + Samples

The first renewed Victrola label 2022 project is arriving! Of course it is NOT the usual re-release, but a fresh new project in the completely upgraded sound! All songs have been restored, remixed into stereo and we bet you will love the result!

Ann Nixon, who is a very famous Elvis fan, said it all: "Seeing and hearing Elvis live is a happening in itself. No gramophone record can reflect the sound of Elvis' voice as he sounded in the real life. The dynamic range and the power that came with his voice were never captured like people really experienced it live."

Being with Elvis in Las Vegas is like having a private concert. Nowadays there are countless recordings of Elvis' shows, and with this project we want to try to show you how it was to experience the real Elvis live in Las Vegas as had you been there in person.

We are aware of the soundboard recordings of Elvis, but quite often they are instrumentally incomplete, or the strong bass or heavy orchestra is overbearing the other instruments in the sound mix. Our dream was to restore this unique collection of live songs that Elvis performed during his Vegas years to their fullest glory. In this project we used the 1970 "On Stage" album as a template and we dreamt of what an original Elvis album would have looked like in the mid 70s. It was clearly noticeable throughout this project is how well Elvis really did sing on stage, and how immaculate the arrangements of the songs were.

That combination and Elvis' unbelievable charisma made everything sound right. Sometimes Elvis did two shows in one night in front of 2500 people during the span of one month. This would be almost the same as performing at the Radio City Music Hall in New York City during four consecutive weeks.
Our release is planned for July 2022. If you have enjoyed our previous CD issues, we believe that you will love new project as well. All selections sound fresh and lively like never before! Ask your local audio vendor for teasers!

SOLD OUT 15: SOON AVAILABLE! 
Sold Out is back, and volume 15 is now  rolling off the presses. And what a humdinger of a release this 2-DVD set is, jampacked with fantastic, unreleased Elvis concert footage directly from private sources in Holland, Germany and the UK… 20 different 8mm films this time!
From the responses we get, we know that the June ’74 footage is a firm favorite with fans. Therefore, we are proud to be able to include six different films from this tour, with the longest being 30 minutes. Elvis looked dazzling on this tour, and wore some of his most iconic jumpsuits, like the American Eagle, the Rainbow and the Inca Gold Leaf. He was very playful during these shows, accepting gifts from fans, teasing bandmembers and joking with the audience. There’s plenty of cool moments, like him introducing himself as ‘Alvis Paisley’, or singing a snatch of ‘Good Time Charlie’s Got The Blues’. What you get is the real ‘nitty gritty’ of Elvis live in ’74: great vocals, fun interaction with his audiences, looking just great and giving his all…. The iconic Elvis.  
There’s also plenty of good stuff from the final years, including close-up film from Hartford and dynamic footage from the legendary 12/28/’76 Dallas concert. And yes, it includes THAT version of ‘C.C. Rider’!
To mark the 50th anniversary of ‘Elvis On Tour’, we’ve also included rare 8mm footage from the April ’72 tour, as well as clips from the June ’72 tour.
Three hours of rare, unreleased Elvis footage that will rock you, mastered with care, and presented as originally filmed. The pre-orders for this title are impressive, so order your copy now from https://www.nowdigthismagazine.co.uk/shop/special-offers/sold-out-volume-15-the-ultimate-8mm-collection/

Midnight In Las Vegas

Ampex is back with a brand new unreleased performance, our follow up to ''You Know, My Bass Man Is Bound To Die'' here comes the second performance that day on the brand new ''Midnight In Las Vegas'' featuring the midnight show on March 24th 1975.
As everybody knows the concerts Elvis gave during his March/April season in las Vegas was a very strong one, there were no weak performances and every show was sold out with Elvis giving a committed performance while introducing some brand new material recorded earlier that month in the studio and wearing some stunning new two-piece outfits. This was a very different Elvis and the setlist reflected that, more often then not Elvis would only perform 2 or 3 of his classics during this season and he mostly relied on new material along with material introduced about a year earlier.

During this concert Elvis performs great versions of ''Promised Land'' ''Fairytale'' ''It's Midnight'' ''My Boy'' ''I'll Remember You'' ''Hawaiian Wedding Song'' and Interestingly David Briggs decided to play a different solo on this night playing an instrumental version of ''T-R-O-U-B-L-E'' a song that wouldn't be added to the setlist until the following tour, we even have Elvis going ''Say hey!'' during this short solo.
Elvis also introduces the legendary disc jockey, actor and musician ''Wolfman Jack'' which Elvis mentions that he's known him for a long time and that they'd been watching each other for years and that Jack had been hosting ''The Midnight Special'' (which ran from 1973 to 1981).
This release comes in a single digipack which contains some stunning photos from this season and you don't want to miss this release.

To get a preview of the release be sure to ask for a sample at your favorite Elvis dealer.

A Real Pleasant Performance

After the success of our first title BJ Records is proud to present their second release ''A Real Pleasant Performance''.
We've decided to bring you a stunning 2 CD package containing two concerts newly mixed into matrix stereo sound.
The concerts presented here were recorded on February 13 in West Palm Beach and February 14 1977 in St. Petersburgh and while these shows have been released previously from the soundboard tapes they deserved a brand new make-over and have never sounded better,
we've gone back and mixed the two shows from scratch and took it to a new level by mixing in the audience recordings from these shows giving the two shows new depth and wider sound detail and showing clear improvements to an otherwise standard soundboard.

Listen to great performances of ''It's Now Or Never'' the great crowd interaction during ''Fever'' a stunning ''My Way'' and touching ''And I Love You So'' and not to forget the two versions of ''Blueberry Hill'' among other highlights.

Taking things a a little further there's also bonus performances included from the rest of the tour which we gave the the same mixing treatment and we have great versions of ''Trying To Get To You'' ''Release Me'' ''Unchained Melody'' ''How Great Thou Art'' and the one and only live performance of ''Where No One Stands Alone''.  We're sure you'll be pleasantly Surprised at the sound and this deserves to be in everyone's collection.

This release is presented in a digipak containing some fantastic brand new photos from West Palm Beach along with photos from other dates on this tour.
Be sure to ask for samples from your local Elvis dealer.

THE BLUE HAWAII RECORDING SESSIONS
Label: Radio Recorders™

Elvis was about to record some signature songs which would follow him through the rest of his career. “Can’t Help Falling In Love” became the closing theme during his entire live career. Ku-U-I-Po, Blue Hawaii and “Hawaiian Wedding Song” were even used in his legendary “Aloha From Hawaii” special.

ELVIS ROCKIN’ THE EARLY SIXTIES

Maybe difficult to believe now, but when Elvis Presley returned from the Army in March 1960 he wasn’t too sure how his career would turn out after such a long absence. New stars arose like Ricky Nelson & Fabian. Needless to say now is that Elvis wouldn’t have to worry too much. Right after his dispatch from the army, he would already appear prime time on the Timex special with Frank Sinatra. This disc features 20 early sixties tracks which make you wanna swing & swirl. Fantastic "rockin" tracks in a restored and remastered sound quality. They never sounded better, it’s like you are right there in the studio.

TICKLE ME
Label: Radio Recorders™

In 1965 Elvis starred in the Allied Artists movie “Tickle Me”. The picture saved the movie company from bankruptcy. Elvis did not record any new music for this movie. The Colonel decided to use already recorded material, which saved Elvis some days of studio work. Of course, all the tracks had to be administered by Elvis’ own publishing company. This would create more income once the movie was released. This album features 31 great tracks related to this 1965 motion picture. This includes alternate takes, soundtrack versions and tracks that were suggested by the Colonel to be used in the movie but didn’t make it. All recordings on this disc have been carefully restored & remastered. They never sounded better, it’s like you are right there in the studio.

SOLD OUT volume 14…. Containing lots of footage you’ve never seen!!

With this new ’Sold Out’, we’re going to have fun, because we are going to take you to the Las Vegas of the early 70s: the sights, the sounds… The extensive Elvis decorations at the Hilton… 8mm film from Elvis’ Summer Festival 1973 is pretty rare, but we have managed to obtain good footage and are presenting it here. Dressed in his ‘Snowflake’ jumpsuit, his repertoire includes a ballsy ‘Steamroller Blues’. Also neat to see Emory Gordy on bass subbing for Jerry Scheff. There’s also great concert footage from 1974, and as always his interplay with the fans is a highlight. When a fan says she’s waited 20 years to get a kiss, he says, “Honey, you must have rusty lips by now!”.
We’ve been asked numerous times to tackle the legendary Pittsburgh 1976 New Year’s Eve show. We obtained the films last year, and had a clean transfer done.  All shot from the same angle by the same person. Often there’s beauty in respecting the history of things, which is essentially what we’ve done with this footage. So that’s what you’re getting here – Pittsburgh just as it was filmed that special night so many years ago. Elvis was ready for this New Year’s Eve concert, and this concert stands today as one of his finest performances from the final years.
There’s lots more: Abilene ’77 as filmed by Rex Martin (a fantastic transfer!); Tampa & Atlanta ’75 - fun footage with an animated Elvis; the Las Vegas opening show from August 1975 (GREAT show!); Binghamton ’77 and plenty more. There’s so much to enjoy: Elvis having fun with the audience, with the band…. Teasing Kathy Westmoreland with her ‘see-through blouse’, calling J.D. Sumner ‘Hovie Lister’…. Goosebump-inducing moments, like a gorgeous ‘My Boy’, the LAST version of ‘Suspicious Minds’, a SENSATIONAL ‘How Great Thou Art’, a rare-for-1977 ‘Lawdy Miss Clawdy’, Elvis asking for the lights to be turned on and performing ‘Funny How Time Slips Away’ in one of the most unusual arenas that he played in the seventies (you MUST see this!!)…. All classic Elvis, and you’re getting almost three hours of that on this terrific new ‘Sold Out’ release. Order now from https://www.nowdigthismagazine.co.uk/shop/special-offers/sold-out-volume-14-the-ultimate-8mm-collection/

Update February 28, 2022

‘SOLD OUT volume 13’ is out and it’s a winner!
Over the past year we have released some amazing 8mm footage that has surprised many of you, much of it unknown to most fans. Now get ready for The Best!
One of the highlights on this new release is an almost-complete 1974 concert in fantastic quality. And the concert itself is a classic, with Elvis at his finest. Until now, this much sought-after film was sold only amongst high-end collectors for large amounts of money. The Omaha July 1, 1974 footage is a fresh high resolution transfer from the actual 8mm film and it looks absolutely stunning. You can even see the details in his suit. This 48-minute film is a true delight, and one of the best 8mm films in existence. Elvis is in a great mood, he’s joking with bandmembers and the audience, and he’s singing up a storm on songs like “Trying To Get To You” and “I Can’t Stop Loving You”. An absolute must-see!
There are 14 different 8mm films on “Sold Out volume 13”, covering the period 1970 – ’76, starting with Mobile ‘70. Plenty of footage from ’71 – ’73 that really makes you feel like you are there. Especially the June ’72 films put you right in the audience… Lights out, sound WAY up and you are THERE! In Chicago, he was clearly mindful of where he was, because he added a lot of blues to his setlist. The ‘Get Back’ medley is cool, with a different guitar-solo by JB. Another cool detail is that several of these films show you the inside of the arenas where Elvis played, with especially the Omni being huge, with 18,000 fans waiting in anticipation for their hero.
‘A medley of costumes…’. There’s also fascinating footage from ’75 and ’76, showing Elvis in various unusual outfits, including the two-piece that he favored in April ’75. And from the ill-fated Summer Festival ’75, the one-time-only ‘Penguin suit’. Story has it that Elvis was running a bit late that night, and opted to do his show in his regular street wear. Well, late or not, his performance that night was intimate and fun, and included various concert rarities.
Three hours of rare Elvis 8mm concert footage… What are you waiting for? 😉 Now available from your dealer!

Update February 18, 2022

‘SOLD OUT’ IS BACK WITH A BANG!!

One night in 1977, probably sensing that things were not going well for him, Elvis asked his gospel group J.D. Sumner & The Stamps to join him center stage. Surrounded by his favorite singers, Elvis sang the gospels that he loved the most, including ‘Bosom Of Abraham’ and ‘You Better Run’. He was now finally part of a gospel group, like he’d dreamed of in his teens. It was a stunning moment, and fortunately it was captured on 8mm film. No doubt this the most significant unreleased Elvis footage to emerge in recent years, and we are proud to release it for the first time on ‘Sold Out volume 12’.
There’s more from that final year, including a raunchy ‘One Night’ from May ‘77, a longer-than usual ‘Early Morning Rain’ and a powerful ‘Unchained Melody’ (nearly complete too!), sung for the last time and with great emotion too…  A vocal tour-de-force that truly demonstrates Elvis’ greatness as an artist, even in his darkest moments. We’ve included a number of films from the final concerts in Cincinnati and Indianapolis,  including semi-professional footage with SENSATIONAL close-ups. It’s very moving to see the Indianapolis footage and realize that these are his final moments on stage. This is historic footage that belongs in every fans’ collection.
There’s also fantastic footage from the great touring years, 1971 and ’72, with Elvis in fantastic form, delighting the crowds with a sincere ‘Are You Lonesome Tonight’, a wild ‘Hound Dog’ with a rockin’ guitar solo, a superb ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’ with reprise, and much more. Up-close & clear, this is quality footage that you will revisit time & again.
This is one of our finest releases yet. A lot of restoration work (80+ hours) was done to present these unique 8mm films the best way possible, without compromising the integrity of the original footage. Pyramid prides itself in bringing the fans new and unreleased Elvis material every single time, and we are confident that you will love this release. This is an essential release and a true must for your collection.  It's out now, so order your copy today from your favorite dealer!

Update February 4, 2022

THE 1971 SOUNDBOARD COLLECTION & MORE 
featuring all known soundboard recordings plus the essential rare & alternate 1971 studio recordings.

This deluxe 6 CD set features recordings from 6 shows recorded during the first Vegas season plus one tour show recorded in Boston Massachusetts.

The first Vegas season of 1971 started on January 26 and finished February 23. During these shows Elvis sang some of the tracks from the just released “Elvis Country” album. Examples are  “Make The World Go Away” ”There Goes My Everything” and “Snowbird”. All shows are presented as they were recorded: in glorious original mono sound. 

In 1971 Elvis’ record company released three completely new studio albums, five 45 RPM singles, three Camden budget albums and one compilation box set. A highlight on this set is the only known live version of the (at the time)  new song ”only believe”.  A studio version would be released in June 1971 on the “Love Letters From Elvis” album, but the song was recorded a year earlier. The fully packed bonus section included in this set contains not less than 25 rare and official unreleased versions of studio tracks recorded in 1971. This disc features unedited masters, unreleased mono masters and further unedited recordings & alternate takes. The mono masters, like all of the tracks on this box set, are a huge improvement over previous releases. They never sounded better. 

The (officially) unreleased version of "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face," initially recorded as a duet with Ginger Holladay, who was there during the sessions with her sister Mary to provide backup vocals, is another highlight on this bonus disc. There are three additional versions of this great song featured as well.

Get this ultimate deluxe edition while it's still available; it'll round up your collection, along with the official deluxe album releases and the recent 1971 Nashville release.

Live In Philadelphia

Out now is a new CD from the Ampex label that is the follow-up to last years ''Kickin' It Down In Baltimore''
with our new release ''Live In Philadelphia'' we present you the show Elvis gave on November 8, 1971 in Philadelphia, PA.
Elvis gave a stunning show at the Spectrum with reviews citing ''16,000 Scream as Presley Brings Back Rock and Roll'' and he did bring back Rock and Roll!
This show had everything an audience member could hope for with classics such as  ''Heartbreak Hotel ''One Night'' ''Are You Lonesome Tonight''
among more recently recorded material like ''You Don't Have To Say You Love Me'' ''You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling'' and even gospel with ‘’How Great Thou Art’’.
Joining Elvis for one night only during this performance was Sweet Inspirations drummer Jerome ''Stump'' Monroe and while Jerome was unprepared he gave a different vibe to most of these songs,
Jerome would fill in for Ronnie Tutt on a couple of occasions during the 70's (December 7, 1975 Las Vegas, NV and June 24, 1977 in Madison,WI).
Also during this show Elvis was backed by a 15-piece orchestra consisting of local musicians led by conductor Joe Guercio.

Here we present a brand new source for the show, unfortunately the person who recorded the show ran out of battery near the end of ''Bridge Over Troubled Water'',
we didn't want to present an incomplete show here due to the rare performance of ''The Impossible Dream'' so we decided to splice it and tag the rest of the show on from a second source to complete it.
This release should not be missed as it this digipack contains stunning photos taken during the show and Elvis show in Philadelphia ranks among one of his finest from the 1970's.

High Notes At The Kiel

Rag Doll is back with a brand new unreleased audience recoring performance! ''High Notes At The Kiel'' contains Elvis his performance at Kiel Auditorium in St. Louis on June 28, 1973.
The June 1973 tour is often considered one of Elvis best tours and while this certainly is true, some dark stuff went on preceding Elvis show on June 28, 1973 in St. Louis, MO.
Back stage moments before Elvis was supposed to take the stage Vernon Presley called Dr. Nick to the singers hotel room, only to find an Elvis that was passed out barely breathing,
after an injection with a stimulant and putting Elvis in a bath tub full of cold water they put him in his nail studded jumpsuit and Elvis took the stage to loud applause.
Not showing any signs of what had happened only moments before. As seen in recently released 8mm footage and pictures one has to ask themselves was this story dramatized or was it all true?

For the first time we can now listen to the infamous concert containing one of Elvis his best versions of ''I Can't Stop Loving You'' and ''I'm Leavin’'' we also have a great performance of ''How Great Thou Art'' including a reprise,
a beautiful ''Help Me Make It Through The Night'' and ''What Now My Love'' among the recently introduced ''Rock 'N' Roll Medley'' and a rousing performance of ''Steamroller Blues''.
The person who recorded this show unfortunately missed the first and last song but the majority is here and worth listening to and should be part of any serious Elvis fan's collection.
We are releasing this as a digipack filled with pictures of the show.

THE CONCERT RECORDINGS | LAS VEGAS 1971
Elvis One presents THE CONCERT RECORDINGS! A collection of 4 cd's with soundboard live recordings recorded at the International Hotel in Las Vegas from January and February 1971 plus a few bonus tracks.

Included are all known recordings from January 26 (opening night), 27 (midnight show), 28 (midnight show), 29 (dinner show) and February 23 (closing show).
These season's shows were quite short (due to hotel management) but Elvis is in an enjoyable mood. There are many highlights including great live recordings from 'Sweet Caroline', 'Make The World Go Away', 'Only Believe', 'Can't Help Falling In Love' (dedicated to Hal Wallis), 'The Impossible Dream', 'How Great Thou Art', 'Something', and many others PLUS also some false starts, one-liners and lyric changes.
'Also Sprach Zarathustra' is played for the very first time during this engagement and the first rendition of this magic opening theme is also presented on this set (opening night, January 26.) Bonus tracks are recordings from the January 28 dinner show, the complete Elvis’s Acceptance Speech of the Jaycees Award from January 16, 1971, and a telephone conversation from April 1971.


All recordings for these 4 releases are remastered for optimum sound quality.
Each cd contains a 16-pages booklet with photos and recording information.
And ofcourse these are all limited editions of only 500 copies.

THE BOOK INCLUDES:
168 pages and over 150+ rare or unknown photos of the Boston concert, from private collections, mainly in color and unedited news reviews (good & bad ones), personal stories & little known facts. For the first time, a brand new transfer from the concert which unveils much more detail, previously unnoticed! The sheer richness and fullness is amazing. The idea of a mono recording is gone! And the best thing is, this is the real deal!
You’re wondering, “Do gold CDs sound better? Are they really that much better than regular CDs?” Short answer : “You bet!” - The fact is that the gold disc's aural improvements are audible under any circumstances. Yes they can be played in any CD/DVD/Blu-ray player.
To us, this concert doesn’t need any enhancements to overwhelm the listener, it is the first row with ELVIS & 15,000 fans at the BOSTON GARDEN! It sounds all new. There was additional work but it all started with the transfer and we loved it! It’s a thrill to hear it like this.
We included due to the large demand the footage of Boston & the November tour also in HD on Blu-ray. (Almost 2 hours and yes, it includes little bit of new footage too). The very first release in High definition!
We’ve chosen to use dual-layer DVD to have the best possible quality on a DVD. As a bonus we added a compilation of Boston & Tuscaloosa to have a more enjoyable viewing expirience of the Boston concert. Although priority has been given to the historical content. So you’re good to go either way!
