Houston, I’m back again  SPECIAL DELUXE COMBO  LP Double Set &CD

VV Special Product  May 2020

To be released soon (Middle of May) from the "VV" label for the first time in vinyl, with both of the shows of Houston 04th & 05th of June 1975 and the ambiance recording of the complete second Houston show included as a bonus. 
This special product will be the follow up of the previous successful  See You Huntsville published by VV on October 2019.

As always the VV attitude is to present Elvis at the peak of his possibility and without a doubt, this double set presents Elvis still at his best. After shedding some extra weight the man is ready to face his second tour of 1975. The June 1975 tour  due to the RCA idea to record a live album gives us some incredible soundboard tapes, unfortunately, all more or less incomplete. But at the same time, it has given us the possibilities after a light editing and a remastering process to use a single vinyl for each Houston concert.

At the same time we are glad to include as bonus CD an unreleased Ambiance Recording of the complete concert of the second day in Houston. The sound is decent: if you want to live the atmosphere of an Elvis concert in 2020 this is the right tape. We can guarantee that Elvis was greeted with incredible enthusiasm; the popularity in the live scene in the middle of 1975 is at its maximum level.

The tour presents Elvis still at the top of his rocker possibility, in spite of his weight. He looks great in his impressive new jumpsuits and he delivers great shows with a great version of the up-tempo rockers Burning Love and his last single T.R.O.U.B.L.E. The enthusiasm is so great sometimes on the ambiance tape the screaming is louder than the music and in one occasion he accepts even a song request like “Trying To Get To you”, a rarity for the tour. The sound is good for an ambient recording, a dynamic tape with a great definition of the background music and for sure you can live the atmosphere of an Elvis concert in the seventies. We hope you can enjoy the final result.

„Still Classy In Omaha“ - VERVE
Another release by Verve which shows how good soundboards can sound, if done properly. When FTD released many years ago the April 22, 1976 in Omaha almost everyone was disappointed about the mix, which had the background singers way, way up in front. It sounded terrible and it’s until today one of the worst releases by the collector’s label.
It was always said that you can’t do anything about the soundpicture, as the soundboard is what it is, but that’s wrong. It is possible to correct the soundpicture, which we did and now you can listen to a concert and find out why the press stated about Presley’s concert on the next day: „Still classy as a caddy!“ The background singers are mixed properly in the background and Elvis’ talent and charisma shines over it all. And a fine concert it was!

With Renewed Vigour

Our first release in 2020 is titled “WITH RENEWED VIGOUR”. It was the1st tour of 1976 and some of Elvis' key musicians were replaced for financial issues. Unexpectedly, the result was a surprisingly fresh sound, with keyboards and drums prominent. During this rather short tour, Elvis performed 8 solid and entertaining shows in 4 cities.

The Charlotte, March 20th, 1976, 2:30pm show was previouslyreleased from an incomplete and inferior source by "J. R. Productions" label in 1994 ("Steamrollin' Charlotte" CD). The sound was hissy, distant and badly muffled on few opening tracks. We have found a completely new source; the original tape was recorded by a well-known American fan, using back then an excellent quality Sony TC-55 cassette recorder.For the first time we present this great concert in complete form and in its best possible sound quality!

As usual, this release is presented in a de-lux 6-panel digipak with a collection of photos taken in Charlotte, March 20th, 1976 2:30pm and with great liner notes written by the fan who taped the show! Also included is great 16-page booklet!

If you have enjoyed our previous March'76 release "RIPPIN' IT IN CINCINNATI" (Straight Arrow Special Products SA/SP 2018-51-02), we bet you will love this one too. The sound is even better, fresher and ambient. .

Tracklist:
01. Introduction: Also Sprach Zarathustra - 02. C. C. Rider - 03. I Got A Woman/Amen - 04. Love Me - 05. Let Me Be There - 06. You Gave Me A Mountain - 07. Steamroller Blues - 08.

Lonesome August Nights Out Now

SR LP&2CD Special Product February 2020 To be released in the early February, Lonesome August Nights (SR Records) will focus on Elvis’ August 1972 Las Vegas season, featuring the dinner&midnight show from August 18th, 1972, previously unreleased and taken directly from the original high-quality tapes.

The

August 18 Midnight Show was previously released on vinyl format in the SR boxed edition of Not too Sweet, here for the first time will be released on CD format completely remastered and in superior sound.

The SR attitude is to present Elvis at the peak of his possibility and without any doubt Elvis’ second week in Vegas August season presents him at the top of his possibilities, delivering great shows. If Rock is an attitude, then the man has it. The performances are terrific, rough and sharp.

On August 18th on the backstage just before to go on the stage The Colonel informed Elvis that his Lawyer had delivered the application for a divorce on the Los Angeles Superior Court... Elvis's answer was a simple nod with the head and two unbelievable SHOWS.

Elvis at least at the begin seems to enjoy this newfound freedom delivering an unbelievable last great Las Vegas season.

Elvis sings and looks magnificent on the stage is iperactive and He performs all the songs to the maximum of his possibilities, presenting all the best of his repertoire from the previous two years combined with the last 1972 new autobiografical song ranging in all musical genres as only he can do.

We are happy to be able to associate great performance with great audio quality in order to be able to obtain a result that you can enjoy too.

The ambiance tapes are both of very good quality, as you can appreciate both Elvis and the band and at the same time you can feel and live the live atmosphere of the intimate Las Vegas Showroom.

The shows has already said are great, we have some a few variations in the songs, this for sure make more interesting the listen of both the shows, See See Rider is back as opener song and the show now consist in a solid collection of great quality songs all well performed . Two new addictions at the repertoire : What Now My Love and My Way . Due to Elvis’ moment two sentimental&life songs no randomly chosen. However talking about 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 a great job of Jerry Scheff bass guitar.

This new SR special Product will be housed in a deluxe 300 grams single sleeve that includes together the 180 grams vinyl, two Bonus CD and bonus high glossy 300 grams 30x30 cm Art Card both sides printed.

Time Is Slipping Away

Our first new release in 2020 is titled "TIME IS SLIPPING AWAY" (EPC 2020-24) and it brings us the Norman, OK, March 25, 1977 show. The title is inspired by the fact that Elvis sings "Funny How Time Slips Away" very unusually as the 3rd song.
The 2nd tour of 1977 was cut short due to Elvis illness, but some of the concerts were surprisingly good, especially the Abilene show on March 27th. In Norman, Elvis performs two solid and entertaining shows. Among the concert highlights are ”You Gave Me A Mountain“, ”Little Sister”, ”My Way”, “Fever“ and ”Hurt”. As the local press wrote, Elvis "The King" Presley delights audience in Lloyd Noble Arena. Note: After the February 1977 tour, David Briggs was replaced by Bobby Ogdin on electric piano and clavinet.
The audio was mastered from an original audience recorded cassette tape recorded by a British fan. The sound is a rich and ambient - ask for samples!
This CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipack with local press review. All images used for the artwork were taken on March 25th, 1977 and they are previously unpublished!

SOUTHBOUND
LUXOR LP 4931/3
Macon Coliseum, Macon Georgia : August 31, 1976
Now available on vinyl: SOUTHBOUND, originally released in 1998 and featuring the August 31 1976 show from Macon Georgia. The 7th tour of 1976 is not known as being the best tour in Elvis' career. During this particular show Elvis appeared demotivated. He was definitely struggling to get to the end of this engagement. Most likely the crowd never even noticed this as they go wild like always as Elvis delivered a mediocre performance.
Still, it’s a part of Elvis’ career that deserves a release on vinyl.
22 years after the original CD release it is time for a high quality re-release of this performance. For the very first time this show is now available on a high quality double vinyl set.  
The show is newly remastered and updated in the best way possible! This release is very limited and is available in RED or BLUE vinyl presented in a gatefold sleeve. And of course the show is included on CD too.
For now this is the last reissue in the Luxor classic reissue series.
But………... be ready for some nice surprises in the near future.
Get it while you can and add this awesome LUXOR product to your collection.

40 GREATEST!
2 CD SET
The legendary PINK ALBUM is now available on a deluxe double compact disc set.
Elvis' 40 Greatest, originally released (on Arcade) in 1974 and UK's biggest-selling album over the Christmas period of that year, but along with all albums on K-tel, Ronco and Arcade, it was ineligible for the UK Albums Chart until 1975 because it was felt that heavy TV advertising and low pricing distorted the charts. It finally reached number one on the UK Albums Chart in 1977, and became the 10th best-selling album of the 1970s in the UK. It was originally pressed with a brown cover and doctored image of Elvis.
The 1978 re-release, was released simultaneously on black vinyl and a more expensive pink vinyl edition. The pink vinyl sold a stagger 250.000 copies MORE than the black vinyl. It is in fact one of the best selling Elvis compilation albums of all time.
Both the original 1974 Arcade and the 1978 pink RCA re-release were, despite its success, never released on compact disc.
But the waiting is over: housed in a stunning 6 panel digipack, Elvis' 40 GREATEST contains the 40 original masters from the 1978 album + as very special bonus tracks are added the original tracks from the 1983 UK edition of the "I WAS THE ONE" album, that contained overdubbed live and studio recordings from the 1950s and early 1960s. These recordings have never been released officially on compact disc.

WORK IN PROGRESS
THE GUITAR MAN ALBUM SESSIONS VOLUME 1         2 CD

In 1980 Felton Jarvis, Elvis' record producer for the last decade came to the remarkable idea to freshen up some of Elvis' recordings. The idea was to add totally new backing tracks to Elvis' voice. This resulted in the 1981 record release of "Guitar Man".
You hate it or you love it is probably the right thing to say about the album.
Felton was convinced Elvis would have loved it. The original album contained 10 songs (which all can be heard in a wonderful newly remastered sound quality on this new 2 CD set). But Felton worked on a bunch of other songs to see if they would suit the project.
This special 2 CD set contains many of those unreleased versions that never made it to the record. Also included are some unreleased unfinished versions of tracks that did make it to the final GUITAR MAN album.
The title track "Guitar Man" written and first performed by Jerry Reed was obviously one of the tracks that had to end up on the album. Jerry Reed was part of the original recording by Elvis in 1967 and now Jerry Reed was back in the studio with Felton Jarvis to work on the new title track for the 1981 re-release. Besides the guitar work he also recorded a "duet" version of the song. This version never made it to the album, but it probably should have. Felton finished this track most likely for his own pleasure or for Jerry Reed and it is one of the many highlights of this set. This is just an example of one of the many surprises you will find on this CD set. And all in a wonderful sound quality. 
This wonderful 2 CD set is full of unreleased tracks like : Blue eyes crying in the rain, The fool, Susan when she tried, Help me, Funny how time slips away and many many more. 
Felton Jarvis sadly passed away early January 1981 even before the album came out.

Lonesome August Nights

SR LP&2CD Special Product February 2020 To be released in the early February, Lonesome August Nights (SR Records) will focus on Elvis’ August 1972 Las Vegas season, featuring the dinner&midnight show from August 18th, 1972, previously unreleased and taken directly from the original high-quality tapes.

The

August 18 Midnight Show was previously released on vinyl format in the SR boxed edition of Not too Sweet, here for the first time will be released on CD format completely remastered and in superior sound.

The SR attitude is to present Elvis at the peak of his possibility and without any doubt Elvis’ second week in Vegas August season presents him at the top of his possibilities, delivering great shows. If Rock is an attitude, then the man has it. The performances are terrific, rough and sharp.

On August 18th on the backstage just before to go on the stage The Colonel informed Elvis that his Lawyer had delivered the application for a divorce on the Los Angeles Superior Court... Elvis's answer was a simple nod with the head and two unbelievable SHOWS.

Elvis at least at the begin seems to enjoy this newfound freedom delivering an unbelievable last great Las Vegas season.

Elvis sings and looks magnificent on the stage is iperactive and He performs all the songs to the maximum of his possibilities, presenting all the best of his repertoire from the previous two years combined with the last 1972 new autobiografical song ranging in all musical genres as only he can do.

We are happy to be able to associate great performance with great audio quality in order to be able to obtain a result that you can enjoy too.

The ambiance tapes are both of very good quality, as you can appreciate both Elvis and the band and at the same time you can feel and live the live atmosphere of the intimate Las Vegas Showroom.

The shows has already said are great, we have some a few variations in the songs, this for sure make more interesting the listen of both the shows, See See Rider is back as opener song and the show now consist in a solid collection of great quality songs all well performed . Two new addictions at the repertoire : What Now My Love and My Way . Due to Elvis’ moment two sentimental&life songs no randomly chosen. However talking about 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 a great job of Jerry Cheff bass guitar.

This new SR special Product will be housed in a deluxe 300 grams single sleeve that includes together the 180 grams vinyl, two Bonus CD and bonus high glossy 300 grams 30x30 cm Art Card both sides printed.

In order to have a special collector’s item, the 400 copies will be presented with FOUR 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 400 COPIES.

 STAR PRESENTS:

The ELVIS Movie
Starring Kurt Russel with the soundtrack of Elvis Presley!

FACTORY PRESSED DUAL LAYER DVD - PAL

It's the same story but the performances have made an incredible upgrade!

STAR keeps surprising fans worldwide, this time they have chosen something "risky" but they deliver once more!

They have replaced Ronnie MdDowell's soundtrack with the only soundtrack that should have been there in the first place ELVIS' s

Lots more music is included and the whole film has a more modern touch then before and can now compete with blockbusters like  "Walk the Line" and 
"Great Balls of Fire" 

Rare live versions and outtakes were handpicked to find the best matching songs for the scenes. 

Kurt Russels "playbacking" looks much more natural and real then before, and how cool it is to hear the actual radio broadcast (Dewey Philips) from the time when "That's All Right" was first played on the air, or to hear  "The Blackwood Brothers" at the funeral of Elvis his mother Gladys

CMT returnes with an incredible follow up to last years "I'm Evil" 

Elvis Presley - "Vegas Throat" 
Live chronicles volume two

Presented in a six panel digipack, limited to 500 copies, this one will be sold out before Christmas!

Every Elvis fan of course will know that this year marked the 50th anniversary of Elvis returning to the stage.
An amazing 11 disc boxset was released and although it is a must, it is most likely it will be played often because most shows are pretty much the same as the one before.

CMT/STAR have made an outstanding "Ultimate" release which includes ALL the songs (29 tracks!)  from the shows in ONE performance!

Lots of time and effort went into the editing and it sounds like one complete show.

This is the one you will be playing over and over, this is why we are Elvis fans; to enjoy his music! 

"Good evening ladies and gentlemen, this is my first live appearance in nine years. 
It is very dry in Las Vegas and singers have what they call a "Vegas Throat"

Update November 20, 2019

Firing On All Cylinders

Between 2007 and 2017, Straight Arrow released no less than 10 concerts from Elvis' 1972 Summer Festival, on 8 individual releases - More than any other label. In recent times we've also released a lot of stuff from the final years, but last year we made the commitment to focus on the 1969 - 1972 period, arguably his best concert years. Recently we were able to obtain two excellent vintage tapes from Elvis' 1972 Summer Season, and it is with some pride that we now present these.
This release is titled "FIRING ON ALL CYLINDERS" (SA/SP 2019-60-02)… and Elvis truly did during this engagement. The first show is from August 7th, 1972 and this is the show where he performed "Steamroller Blues" for the first time. The second show is Closing Night from September 4th, and it can easily be called the best show of the entire season. It's a nice surprise that we are able to include some of the warm-up acts, including Jackie Kahanes's set, as well as the Sweet Inspiration set. These ladies were smoking H - O - T, and it's easy to hear why they were considered to me amongst the best female soul groups in the business. As you probably know, they used to work together with Aretha, and The Sweet Inspirations' performance of her hits is one of the highlights on this disc.  
We believe that the inclusion of the opening acts will give you a unique perspective of what it was like to experience one of Elvis' Las Vegas concerts during this period in time.
The August 7th, 1972 Midnight Show is a previously unreleased concert, taken from a newly obtained original audience recorded tape in surprisingly good quality. This specific tape has not been available previously. There is another recording of this show in circulation on CDR, but the sound quality of that one is poor.
The September 4th, 1972 Closing show was released by some no-name label back in 2005, from an incomplete source and in very hissy sound ("Walk That Lonesome Road" CD - with the missing song being "A Big Hunk O'Love"). We have found an alternate source, an original tape which includes the main part of the pre-program by The Sweet Inspirations as well as comedian Jackie Kahane. For the first time we present this great closing show in its complete form, and in the best possible sound quality!
This release is presented in a de-luxe 8-panel digipak, with a collection of photos taken in Las Vegas, NV, on August 8th, 1972 (Dinner), September 3rd, 1972 (3am) and September 4th, 1972 Closing shows.
Tracklist:

CD1 (07.08.1972 M/S): 01. Opening Vamp / C. C. Rider - 02. Proud Mary - 03. Until It's Time For You To Go - 04. You Don't Have To Say You Love Me - 05. You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin' - 06.

This release is expected very soon. In the meantime, you may ask your local dealer for audio samples to judge for yourself! It's a new "STRAIGHT ARROW", so you know what to expect. Every second of these concerts was digitally restored, every click or disturbing clap in quiet songs manually removed, every drop-out or damaged place fixed to achieve optimal listening pleasure. The next "STRAIGHT ARROW" releases in early 2020 will be excellent shows from 1971, 1972 and 1974, so stay tuned!


Update November 19, 2019

Two New EP Collectors Releases

Expected soon from the E. P. Collector label are two exciting new CD releases!

LOVE MY TEDDY BEAR TENDER

Recorded live at the International Hotel, Las Vegas, NV, September 3rd, 1971, Dinner show While some of Elvis import labels are just re-releasing previously issued and repackaged stuff, the always reliable E. P. Collector label is always looking for something new to release. We are always reaching out to people in order to find new material, and if it's interesting, we will purchase it, even if the sound is not studio perfect. In recent months we were in touch with a couple of fans who recorded a number of interesting concerts, which now enables us to release two more surprises.

The first new release is titled "LOVE MY TEDDY BEAR TENDER" (EPC 2019-22) and it brings us the Las Vegas, September 3rd, 1971 Dinner show. You'll have to forgive us for the somewhat clumsy title, but maybe you'll understand when we tell you that it contains a sensational concert rarity! During this concert, he sings "Love Me Tender" to the tune of "Teddy Bear"!! He only did this once, during this concert, and now for the first time you can hear this amazing discovery!!! Who would think that we would still be getting surprises like this in 2019?! Concert recordings from '71 are hard to come by these days, especially unreleased ones. During this season, Elvis was on fire, and his setlist was varied and strong. Near the end of the engagement, his shows were a bit looser, and this one is a real delight. This concert recording is a completely new show, even for the hardcore fans. The audio was mastered from an original audience recorded cassette tape. This CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipack with a press review and a collection of images taken in Las Vegas, NV, in August/September 1971.

Tracklist:
01. Orchestra Intro - 02. Also Sprach Zarathustra (2001 Theme) - 03. That’s All Right - 04. I Got A Woman - 05. Proud Mary - 06. Sweet Caroline - 07. Polk Salad Annie - 08. Instrumental Intermezzo - 09. Johnny B. Goode - 10. It's Impossible (with false start) - 11. Love Me - 12. Medley: Blue Suede Shoes / Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On - 13. Heartbreak Hotel - 14. Love Me Tender sung to Teddy Bear tune - 15. Medley: Teddy Bear / Don't Be Cruel - 16. Hound Dog - 17. Suspicious Minds - 18. Band Introductions - 19. I'm Leavin' - 20. Lawdy Miss Clawdy - 21. Can't Help Falling In Love (with false start) - 22. Closing Vamp.


KNOXVILLE KNOCKOUT

Recorded live at the UOT Stokely Arena, Knoxville, TN, April 8, 1972 Evening show

Our second new CD is titled "KNOXVILLE KNOCKOUT" (EPC 2019-23). Just as our first release, the Knoxville, TN, April 8, 1972 8:30 pm evening show is previously unreleased and moreover, it is completely a new show for all Elvis die-hard fans: again, never before in circulation, in any form! Interestingly enough, RCA was there to record, but their tape recorder malfunctioned. Now you can finally hear what RCA tried to record!!
This concert is taken from a recently discovered original audience recorded cassette tape. Unfortunately, "An American Trilogy" is incomplete, and it is possible that there's is one song missing, just before the "Can't Help Falling In Love" finale.
As we've come to expect from the April '72 shows, Elvis is in excellent form. And what a rare treat to finally get an audience recorded tape from this highly regarded tour! Elvis is firing on all cylinders. He knocks "How Great Thou Art" out of the ballpark. Wow, just wow!!
As usual, this CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipack with excerpts from a local press review and a collection of images taken on tour in April, 1972, including a couple of real, very rare Knoxville show shots.
Tracklist:

01. Also Sprach Zarathustra (2001 Theme) - 02. C. C. Rider - 03. Proud Mary - 04. Never Been To Spain - 05. You Gave Me A Mountain - 06. Until It's Time For You To Go - 07. Polk Salad Annie - 08. Love Me - 09. All Shook Up - 10. Medley: Teddy Bear / Don't Be Cruel - 11. Hound Dog - 12. Love Me Tender (with break) - 13. How Great Thou Art - 14. I Can't Stop Loving You (with reprise) - 15. For The Good Times - 16. Suspicious Minds - 17. Band Introductions - 18. An American Trilogy (incomplete) - 19. Can't Help Falling In Love - 20. Closing Vamp.

MY, IT’S BEEN A LONG LONG TIME
LUXOR LP 4931/2
Greensboro Coliseum, June 30 1976

Now available on vinyl: MY ITS BEEN A LONG LONG TIME, originally released in 1998 and featuring probably the best show of (already) the 5th tour of 1976. In total Elvis rocked the Greensboro Coliseum 5 times. Obviously most memorable is the April 14 1972 performance which is considered to be one of his best performances. But more than 4 years later Elvis still delivered a high quality show in Greensboro. (And the crowd goes wild!!!)

21 years after the original cd release it is time for a high quality re-release of this fantastic performance. For the very first time this show is now available on a high quality double vinyl set.

Although the original release was way above the standard soundboard sound quality, the show is newly remastered and updated in the best way possible! And it sounds amazing! This release is very limited and is available in RED or BLUE vinyl presented in a gatefold sleeve. And of course the show is included on cd too. Get it while you can and add this awesome LUXOR product to your collection.

To be released in the middle of November, First In Line Vol.2 (MxF Records) will focus on Elvis’ January&February 1974 Vegas season, featuring the midnight show from January 30th and the evening show from February 08th, 1974, both the shows previously unreleased and taken directly from the original ambiance high-quality tape.

Elvis’ tolerance for Vegas has reached its limit in the previous august 1973 season so after the deserved rest of 5 months, Elvis is back in Las Vegas Hilton. According to the new contract, He will perform twice a year, but only two weeks at a time rather than the previous four. The repertoire was reduced compared to the previous season to 15/20 songs with three new additions: Help me, Spanish Eyes and the popular Let Me Be There. The choice of songs in the different shows varied little, but due the 9 days of the distance of the two shows here presented we have some a few variations in the songs, this for sure make more interesting the listen of both the shows. .

Good and the sentimental The First Time Ever I saw your Face..I longer show and slightly better in the audio quality and for this reason included in the LP.

Nashville Marathon Volume 2

MTP is back with some amazing new releases!

We all remember the "good old days" when FTD released their first releases like
"The Jungle Room Sessions", "Fame and Fortune" and "Out in Hollywood".

Those cds were in our players for weeks, due to all the unreleased stuff, great sound quality and last but not least the fact there were a lot of complete outtakes never heard before.

After a while, although the releases were still fantastic, we got more and more cds with lots of outtakes from the same songs, great for collecting, but listening pleasure was a bit less fun...

The label continues their series with two releases which will be in your player for weeks, and are again "Meant to be Played"

THE NASHVILLE MARATHON VOLUME 2

This time we get the 1971 sessions in the same treatment as the first volume, some hard to find tracks and outtakes are included as well as some nice surprises and edits such as the extended version of "Lady Madonna" which rocks like never before. 
Another highlight is the new "Don't Think Twice It's Allright" edit of take 2 recorded on May 17th.

Presented in deluxe digipack

Tracks:
Early Morning Rain - Take 1,11

Hard to find outtakes and new edits, presented in a deluxe digipack edition.  

Another collection of 22 great songs, most are hard to find, or released on cds where you get so many takes of the same song, you probably only have heard them once, or more likely... never. Also included are some cool UNRELEASED tracks like "Poor Boy" which is an alternate master and "Stay Away" which has the harmonica intro followed by the master take, the sound is much better then the actual movie version.

Friday Night Lights

Our new release is titled "FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS" (SA/SP 2019-59-02). "STRAIGHT ARROW" label is continuing to release early 70s concerts and this new release is a direct follow-up to our July release called "KENTUCKY RAIN" (SA/SP 2019-57-02).
The Las Vegas, February 20th, 1970 Dinner show was previously released by the "SR" label in 2015 from an inferior, degraded copying and basically unlistenable source. The show was incomplete with cuts and running way too slow).
Now you have a chance to listen to this fantastic concert in the best possible quality, for the first time.
The Las Vegas, February 20th, 1970 Midnight show is previously unreleased and it was never available in good quality and in complete form - until now! It is one of greatest Elvis shows ever with “Polk Salad Annie” and “Suspicious Minds” being reprised!!
We decided to add 5 bonus tracks, recorded during the February 21st, 1970 Dinner show. These tracks were never available in decent sound quality either. This recording includes the one-liner of the Pat Boone hit "When the Swallows Come Back to Capistrano." Unfortunately, no more tracks from this concert were taped.
All material (incl. the bonus tracks) presented on this release was recorded by same person. This release is presented in a de-luxe 8-panel digipak, with a collection of photos taken in Las Vegas, NV, February 1970 as well as a press review.
Tracklist:
CD1 (20.02.1970 D/S)
01. Orchestra Intro (part) - 02. Opening Vamp (incomplete) / All Shook Up - 03. I Got A Woman - 04. Long Tall Sally - 05. Don't Cry Daddy - 06. Hound Dog - 07. Love Me Tender (with false start) - 08. Kentucky Rain - 09. Let It Be Me (with false start) - 10. I Can't Stop Loving You - 11. Walk A Mile in My Shoes / In the Ghetto - 12. Sweet Caroline - 13. Polk Salad Annie - 14. Dialogue - 15. Introductions of singers, musicians, orchestra - 16. Suspicious Minds - 17. Can't Help Falling in Love.

CD2 (20.02.1970 M/S)
01. Orchestra Intro - 02. Opening Vamp - 03. All Shook Up - 04. I Got A Woman - 05. Long Tall Sally (with false start) - 06. Don't Cry Daddy - 07. Hound Dog - 08. Love Me Tender (with false start) - 09. Kentucky Rain (with false start) - 10. Let It Be Me - 11. I Can't Stop Loving You - 12. Walk A Mile in My Shoes / In the Ghetto - 13. Sweet Caroline - 14. Polk Salad Annie (with reprise) - 15. Introductions of singers, musicians, orchestra - 16. Suspicious Minds (with reprise) - 17. Can't Help Falling in Love.
Bonus (21.02.1970 D/S):
18. All Shook Up (incomplete) - 19. I Got A Woman - 20. When the Swallows Come Back to Capistrano (one line) - 21. Long Tall Sally - 22. Don't Cry Daddy.
This release is expected very soon. In the meantime you may ask your local dealer for audio samples to judge for yourself! It's a new "STRAIGHT ARROW", so you know what to expect, anyway! Every second of these concerts was digitally restored, every click or disturbing clap in quiet songs manually removed, every drop-out or damaged place fixed to achieve optimal listening pleasure. Next "STRAIGHT ARROW" releases will be 1971/1972 shows, so stay tuned!

Green peppers, Onions And Catfish

Our first new release is titled "GREEN PEPPERS, ONIONS AND CATFISH" (EPC 2019-21). 
Now, while some of Elvis import labels are just repackaging and re-releasing old stuff, E. P. Collector label is coming with another surprise! The Norfolk, July 20th, 1975 8:30pm show is previously unreleased and it was never before available in complete form and in solid quality! There is an old CDR in circuit of absolutely horrible sound and moreover, it's missing the last couple of songs. Now is a good time to throw this one into garbage can and grab the ultimate version! 
As almost every fan knows, Elvis' July ’75 tour is rated as one of the best Elvis tours ever. The shows were longer and the playlists variable. Vocally, Elvis was in TOP shape. Two dynamic, rocking shows in Norfolk are no exception. Yes there was the (in) famous so called “catfish” incident - but, as usual, the whole story was exaggerated. Among the highlights there are „The Wonder Of You,” „Polk Salad Annie,” „ T-R-O-U-B-L-E,” „How Great Thou Art,” and „It’s Now Or Never.”  One song stands out - one of the very last performances of Chuck Berry’s great „Promised Land.” 
This concert is taken from a recently found first generation copy of an original audience recorded cassette tape, recorded by a well known American fan. You may ask your supplier for samples.
This CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipack with collection of images taken by Len Leech in Norfolk, VA, 1975 E/S. It’s our first 1975 release and we hope to bring you more!
Tracklist:
01. Also Sprach Zarathustra (2001 Theme) - 02. C. C. Rider - 03. medley: I Got A Woman / Amen - 04. "Catfish incident" - 05. Love Me - 06. If You Love Me (Let Me Know) - 07. Love Me Tender - 08. All Shook Up - 09. medley: Teddy Bear / Don't Be Cruel - 10. Hound Dog - 11. The Wonder Of You - 12. Polk Salad Annie - 13. Band Introductions - 14. Johnny B. Goode (James Burton) - 15. Drum Solo (Ronnie Tutt) - 16. Bass Solo (Blues - Jerry Scheff) - 17. Piano Solo (Glen D. Hardin) - 18. School Day - 19. T-R-O-U-B-L-E - 20. Why Me Lord? - 21. How Great Thou Art (with reprise) - 22. Let Me Be There - 23. Funny How Time Slips Away (with reprise) - 24. Little Darlin' - 25. medley: Mystery Train / Tiger Man - 26. It's Now Or Never - 27. Promised Land - 28. Can't Help Falling In Love - 29. Closing Vamp.

Softly As I Leave You

Our second new CD is titled "SOFTLY AS I LEAVE YOU" (EPC 2019-22).
The Las Vegas, August 23rd, 1974 Dinner show is previously unreleased. This concert is taken from an early generation copy of an original audience recorded cassette tape which was never in circulation! Sound is excellent for an off - line source.  Unfortunately, the last 3 songs were not recorded. Instead of using a very poor sounding secondary source of the same show (missing the last song "Can't Help Falling In Love," anyway), we have decided to add same songs from the August 23rd, 1974 Midnight show tape which is of similar quality as the August 23rd, 1974 Dinner show. As usual, you may ask your supplier for samples.
The playlist is rather typical for August ’74 shows. Among the concert highlights, there are „It's Midnight,“ ”I'm Leavin',” of course ”Softly, As I Leave You”, a great version of “You Gave Me A Mountain” and a funky ”If You Talk In Your Sleep.”
This CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipack with a collection of great images taken during the August/September 1974 concerts.
If you've enjoyed our previous August 1974 release called „A SONG FOR SHEILA,“ then you are sure to enjoy our forthcoming one even more!
Tracklist:
01. Also Sprach Zarathustra - 02. C. C. Rider - 03. medley: I Got A Woman / Amen - 04. Love Me - 05. If You Love Me (Let Me Know) - 06. It's Midnight - 07. Big Boss Man - 08. Fever - 09. Love Me Tender - 10. All Shook Up - 11. The Wonder Of You - 12. I'm Leavin' - 13. Softly, As I Leave You - 14. Hound Dog - 15. You Gave Me A Mountain (with reprise) - 16. Polk Salad Annie - 17. Band Introductions - 18. If You Talk In Your Sleep - 19. Why Me Lord - 20. medley: Teddy Bear / Don't Be Cruel - 21. Hawaiian Wedding Song - 22. Let Me Be There (with reprise) - 23. Elvis' monologue about rings - 24. Can't Help Falling In Love - 25. Closing Vamp.
Tracks 21.-25. taken from August 23rd, 1974 Midnight show.

Update August 27, 2019

Singer Presents Elvis

This set was first released in 2011 and sold out immediately, mainly because of the many completely unreleased tracks. Most of these tracks are still only available on this set and we’ve got a lot of request for this CD. So we decided to make a low budget version and give everyone the possibility to own these recording on the label that made them available. As with all Venus releases all tracks are uncut and the sound is top notch!

FROM SUNSET BOULEVARD TO PARADISE ROAD
DAE LP 006/7
4LP + 4CD set.
Vinyl colour: WHITE, PURPLE and BLUE

August 1974 is a remarkable period in Elvis’ career. A new Vegas engagement was ahead of him and Elvis and his loyal musicians had plans for a new and refreshing show, which they were going to perform for a two week period. Probably to avoid getting bored from doing the same year in and year out, they went to rehearse some new songs to create the new setlist.
Fortunately the rehearsal from August 16 was recorded on a 2 track cassette deck and is presented here in its ultimate form. Originally released way back in 1995 it was time for an update. Although the rehearsal and the show have been re-released by several other labels, they were simply badly remastered copies of the original release. Sometimes even being incomplete and sounding very “thin” due to the high level of noise reduction and compression. An exception must be made for some tracks in original binaural sound that were released some years back. The original master tape has been recorded in binaural but quality wise it left a lot to desire. In 1995 a straight copy of the master tape was used to create a more balanced mix of this remarkable recording. For this re-release an early “work in progress” version is used which contains less reverb than the version originally released. The recording has been painstakingly restored, resulting in what we believe to be the ultimate sounding and most complete outing of this remarkable rehearsal and the show.
Following the rehearsal, we present the opening night show of the engagement rehearsed for.
During the opening night Also Sprach Zarathustra and See See Rider were replaced by Big Boss Man and were followed byProud Mary and Down In The Alley. Most likely the audience was very surprised by the new setlist. Remarkably enough the next night the show went back to (pretty much) normal. Songs like Down In The AlleyGood Time Charlie’s Got The Blues,Never Been To Spain and My Baby Left Me were not played again during this engagement. So without any doubt the opening night concert is one of his most unique shows. The reason for the abrupt ending of the new refreshing setlist can only be guessed, but most likely Elvis fell out of his comfort zone and the audience was more pleased with the good old I Got A Woman and All Shook Up. Some of the rehearsed songs did survive during this two week engagement. For example It’s Midnight & If You Talk In Your Sleep & I’m Leavin’ became regular performed songs during these two weeks.

Now available are these very limited edition deluxe box sets.
Available in WHITE, PURPLE or BLUE vinyl.
Each vinyl colour being presented in its own awesome designed boxset. Get it while you can.

6363 SUNSET - VOLUME 2 - Deluxe digipack

We all remember the "good old days" when FTD released their first releases like
"The Jungle Room Sessions", "Fame and Fortune" and "Out in Hollywood".

Those cds were in our players for weeks, due to all the unreleased stuff, great sound quality and last but not least the fact there were a lot of complete outtakes never heard before.

After a while, although the releases were still fantastic, we got more and more cds with lots of outtakes from the same songs, great for collecting, but listening pleasure was a bit less fun...

The second release from MTP records is out now and will be another fan favorite!

Included are some very hard to find outtakes and rehearsals recorded at RCA's Hollywood, California studios.

This time, not only do we get tracks from '72 and '75 since there are also some essential tracks from the August 16, 1974 rehearsal, where Elvis made a completely new line up for his upcoming engagement.

Also included are some rare string overdubbed versions from the May 8, 1972 session.

This new release is at least as good as the first volume and is "Meant to be Played"

TRACKS:
Separate Ways - take 4,13 (spliced with take 21)
Where Do I Go From Here - take 2
Burning Love - Rehearsal #2 (March 31,1972)
For the Good Times - take 4 (March 30,1972)
Proud Mary  - Rehearsal #2 (March 31,1972)
Never Been To Spain - Rehearsal #2 (March 31,1972)

Elvis Sessions From Clambake

Victrola is proud to present an ultimate 3CD-set of Elvis’ “CLAMBAKE” sessions. It is called simply “ELVIS SESSIONS FROM CLAMBAKE” and all these recordings including the masters came from the same 1989 DAT source tapes just as our very successful 2018 “AVVENTURA IN ORIENTE” 3CD release. We have decided to give that album a worthy follow up! What makes this new release special? Most tracks have been released before, but never before in such pristine quality!!!

Clambake the movie was definitely not Elvis’ finest moment but the soundtrack from 1967 does have some noteworthy songs. Elvis was tired of making the same movies again and again and it's around this time that they had to force him to come to the studio.

Elvis was looking for new challenges, as can be heard in the famous “Guitar Man” sessions. Victrola team is happy to bring you a lot of material with several unreleased outtakes of these sessions including stereo takes which were previously only available in mono.

Also presented here for the very first time are the “U. S. Male” outtakes which have only been released on an old CD called “Going Home” which was heavily noise reduced, resulting in a very unnatural, artificial sound. Finally, we present this session material the right way!

For the first time also, we release the stereo versions of the home recordings of “500 Miles” and “Blowing In The Wind”!

All tracks have been digitally restored and mastered in a renowned sound studio. This 3CD-set is presented in a stunning looking digipack. Do not miss your opportunity to obtain an ultimate “Clambake” release from Victrola label! If you enjoyed our “AVVENTURA IN ORIENTE”, then we are absolutely sure that you will love our new 3CD-set too!

Two New Straight Arrow Releases

ELVIS - KENTUCKY RAIN

Sunday, February 22, 1970 Midnight Show, Las Vegas International Hotel, Las Vegas, NV
This year, the "STRAIGHT ARROW" label team promises to focus especially on the concert years 1969-1972. After the great success of our 1969 release, titled "ELVIS - STRIKE LIKE LIGHTNING!" (SA/SP 2019-56-02), we're back again – this time with two great releases from 1970! The first CD is titled "KENTUCKY RAIN" (SA/SP 2019-57-02). The February 22nd, 1970 Midnight show is a previously unreleased concert, taken directly from an original audience recorded master tape. This concert was never available in good sound quality thus far (note: in 2007, the "SR" label released a so-called February 22nd, 1970 Midnight show on the "Rock In Black" double CD, but this show was wrongly dated and in fact it was the February 23rd, 1970 Dinner show!)

The February 22nd, 1970 Midnight show recording is slightly incomplete, missing the last song "Can't Help Falling In Love", so we have included this song in the same good sound, as taken from the February 20th, 1970 Dinner show, to make the concert "complete" for listeners' comfort.

As usual, this release is presented in a de-luxe 6-panel digipak, with a collection of photos taken in Las Vegas, NV, February 1970 and a press review.

Tracklist:
01. Opening Vamp - 02. All Shook Up - 03. I Got A Woman - 04. Long Tall Sally - 05. Don't Cry Daddy - 06. Hound Dog - 07. Monologue - 08. Love Me Tender (with false start) - 09. Kentucky Rain - 10. Let It Be Me - 11. I Can't Stop Loving You - 12. Walk A Mile In My Shoes (false start only) - 13. C. C. Rider - 14. Sweet Caroline - 15. Polk Salad Annie - 16. Introductions of singers, musicians, orchestra - 17. Suspicious Minds - 18. Introduction of Roy Orbison - 19. Can't Help Falling In Love.
Track 19 taken from February 20th, 1970 Dinner show.

Our second release is titled "LIKE A GREEK GOD" (SA/SP 2019-58-02).
The September 4th, 1970 Midnight show is a previously unreleased concert, taken from an original audience recorded tape. In 2005, the "Memory Records" label used 6 tracks from this tape as a bonus for "The Midnight Hour" CD. Unfortunately, the August 4th, 1970 Midnight show recording is incomplete, missing the last 3 songs. We have decided to add the same songs as taken from the September 5th, 1970 Midnight show to make the show "complete" for listeners' comfort.

The September 7th, 1970 Closing night was released by the "SR" label in 2008 in very poor, muffled sound, taken from a degraded x-generation copy (the "September Nights" CD). Once again we have used an original master tape and restored it to crisp, clear perfection. Elvis' crazy Closing night performance never sounded better - until NOW!

Both concerts presented on this release were recorded by same person. This release is presented in a de-luxe 8-panel digipak, with a collection of photos taken in Las Vegas, NV, August 1970 and a press review.

Tracklist:
CD1 (04.09.1970 M/S)
01. Orchestra Intro (ending only) / Opening Vamp - 02. That's All Right - 03. I Got A Woman / Amen - 04. Monologue / La Bamba (one line) / I Walk The Line (one line) - 05. Love Me Tender (with false start) - 06. I've Lost You - 07. I Just Can't Help Believin' - 08. You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin' - 09. Polk Salad Annie - 10. Crying Time (one verse) - 11. Introductions of singers, musicians, orchestra - 12. Johnny B. Goode - 13. Introductions cont'd / playing with laughing box - 14. Introduction of Trini Lopez, Paul Anka / My Way (one line) - 15. The Wonder Of You - 16. Heartbreak Hotel (false starts only) - 17. One Night (with false start) - 18. Blue Suede Shoes - 19. Hound Dog - 20. Bridge Over Troubled Water - 21. Can't Help Falling In Love - 22. Closing Vamp.

Track 18 spliced with 05.09.1970 Midnight show.
Tracks 19-22 taken from 05.09.1970 Midnight show.
CD2 (07.09.1970 C/S)
01. Orchestra Intro - 02. Opening Vamp - 03. That's All Right - 04. I Got A Woman / Amen - 05. Monologue / I Walk The Line (one line) - 06. Love Me Tender (false start only) - 07. I've Lost You - 08. I Just Can't Help Believin' - 09. You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin' - 10. Polk Salad Annie - 11. Introductions of singers, musicians, orchestra / Bob Dylan impersonations - 12. Introduction of Shirley Bassey, actor James Shigeta ("Paradise Hawaiian Style") - 13. Introduction of Colonel Tom Parker, Vernon Presley, Priscilla Presley - 14. Heartbreak Hotel (only 4 funny false starts) - 15. Blue Suede Shoes / Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On / Blue Suede Shoes - 16. Introduction of sound engineer Bill Porter, Felton Jarvis, light man - 17. All Shook Up (with false start) - 18. Hound Dog (with 2 false starts) - 19. Bridge Over Troubled Water - 20. Can't Help Falling In Love (with 2 false starts) - 21. Closing Vamp.

Both releases are expected very soon. In the meantime you may ask your local dealer for audio samples to judge for yourself! It's a new "STRAIGHT ARROW" so you know what to expect, anyway! Every second of these concerts was digitally restored, every click or disturbing clap in quiet songs manually removed, every drop-out or damaged place fixed to achieve optimal listening pleasure. What we plan to release the next time? Perhaps some unreleased concerts from 1971-1972, definitely not from 1976-1977 :-). Stay tuned!
Update May 30, 2019


THE CLASSIC BOOTLEG COLLECTION VOLUME 2

Now available is THE CLASSIC BOOTLEG COLLECTION VOLUME 2.
A sublime 6 cd box set with 6 classic Elvis Presley bootleg albums. Again there is chosen for some 50's , 60's and 70's instead of focusing on one time period.

This way all will be served! There is a big chance your favorite Elvis bootleg album is presented in this boxset.
These were the albums in the late 1970's and 1980's that fans were longing for, cause it presented much better (and rarer!) material than Elvis' own record company released in those days.
This stunning box contains miniature albums of the original releases and includes all the original album tracks, digitally remastered and they now sound better than ever before! Still many of these tracks are unreleased by Elvis' official record company.

Just like on THE CLASSIC BOOTLEG COLLECTION VOLUME 1 there are some true gems (or rough cut diamonds) to be found on this set! And above all that it will bring back beautiful memories!

TWO GREAT RELEASES OUT MAY 15TH!

We all remember the "good old days" when FTD released their first releases like
"The Jungle Room Sessions", "Fame and Fortune" and "Out in Hollywood".

Those cds were in our players for weeks, due to all the unreleased stuff, great sound quality and last but not least the fact there were a lot of complete outtakes never heard before.

After a while, although the releases were still fantastic, we got more and more cds with lots of outtakes from the same songs, great for collecting, but listening pleasure was a bit less fun...

Time for some action!
The new label " MTP " (Meant to be Played) is proud to present their first release:

"OUT IN HOLLYWOOD volume 2" a release with some very rare and hard to find "complete" outtakes!
The artwork matches the original first release and has the same "feel" ... this looks to be a real winner!

"OUT IN HOLLYWOOD volume 2" 
1.    Roustabout - take 13
2.    Bossa Nova Baby - take 11
3.    Let Yourself Go - Reversed Master 
4.    Your Time Hasn't Come Yet, Baby - take 1    
5.    If You Think I Don't Need You take 2

DUETS AND HARMONIES

Over the years there were many duets released with Elvis, during his life, but even more after his death , many "Stars" wanted to do a song with "The King" .

CMT is proud to present this incredible release, which has original duets, rare "harmony" versions and some newly made duets not released on any cd!
Duets include: Lisa Marie Presley, Connie Francis, Ray Charles, Cliff Richard, Anita Wood, Dale Watson, Kitty White, Charlie Hodge, Michael Buble, Nancy Sinatra, Ann Margret, J.D. Sumner, Barbara Streisand, Dolly Parton, Helene Fischer, Jerry Reed, Celine Dion, Shaun Nielsen, The Gatlin Brothers and Glen Cambell!

Just listen to the beautiful duet between Elvis and Dolly Parton, this version of "In the Ghetto" is very different from the original, and stands on it's own... it could have been a great release for a record, and without a doubt would have topped the charts!

"Ray Charles" provides a great "orchestrated" version of "I'll Never Stand In Your Way" where a very young Elvis joins him as if he was singing along with the record at home, the same goes for "My Happiness" with "Connie Francis"

"Ike and Tina Turner" start of "easy" and Elvis takes over with a very "rough" rockin' version of "Proud Mary" 

The 1958 duet "Crawfish" featuring Kitty White and Elvis has been re-edited now this really is a duet version which works very well!

Another highlight is the included version of "Softly, As I Leave You" .. "Michael Buble" sings the song, where Elvis recites the words.. in the end "Shaun Nielsen" joins in to make a breathtaking ending which leaves you with goosebumbs!

"JD Sumner" takes the lead, where "The Imperials" blend in to do the first part of "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" , then Elvis and "The Jordanaires" bring the song home!

Some harmony versions included in this set are also not  to be missed! "Fever" has Elvis singing multiple verses at once which sounds very rare and unusual.
"Kissin' Cousins" combines both the "Hillbilly" overdub and the "Regular" overdub... this is the only release where "Josh and Jody" sing the whole song together!
"Baby, I Don't Care" has two very different sounding takes of Elvis, and does now sound like a nice duet!

Combine all these tracks with some great duets from earlier hard to find releases and you will have a very unusual new album including 28 tracks!
The artwork fits the release very well, inside all the stars have "signed" their autograph, giving it an authentic touch since it is made just like a record album with fold out sleeve.

Elvis Sings The Harmony

After nearly 11 years, label “Reel Trax”, famous for now very rare import CDs “You'll Never Walk Alone” and “Where No One Stands Alone” is back with a new and exciting project, called “Elvis Sings The Harmony”.

Elvis´ love for singing harmony has its roots in his love for gospel choirs. It is absolutely common and even necessary to be able to sing harmony when you do gospel songs, unless you are always on lead vocals. From the very early stages of his career the “King” never really needed to do any harmony part. He had his beloved “Jordanaires” with him who did a great job all of the time. Later on there were plenty of other background singers who always could do the job (and did it of course) absolutely fantastic! Maybe Elvis chose to do his own harmony in the recording studio on a couple of songs because he COULD do it (and very well for sure). Maybe he got the idea from his own “home recordings” which we know quite a few of (as early as 1958)? One thing is clear: First you have to have the ability to do it. There have been many singers in show business who have NOT been able to do their own harmony because they simply did not know how to do it (you´ve got to have an “ear” for that)! Elvis did a great job on all of the songs you hear on this brand new CD, there´s no doubt. The one which is best known is certainly the legendary 1969 recording “Suspicious Minds”. But there sure is much more to explore on “Elvis Sings The Harmony” CD!

All tracks used for this project were taken from best possible sources available to date. Many of songs were individually restored and corrected and some are previously unreleased on CD. This unique release is presented in a de-luxe six-panel digipack with many unusual photos.

Tracks:

01. I'm Yours
02. Could I Fall In Love (harmony vocal overdub)
03. Singing Tree (remake with harmony vocals)
04. Gentle On My Mind (different mix)
05. Don't Cry Daddy (taken from acetate)
06. Mama Liked The Roses (harmony vocal overdub)
07. Suspicious Minds (master take without fade)
08. True Love Travels On A Gravel Road
09. Power Of My Love
10. Do You Know Who I Am
11. Bridge Over Troubled Water (master without overdubbed applause)
12. There Goes My Everything
13. Snowbird (take 6)
14. Miracle Of The Rosary
15. Separate Ways
16. For The Good Times (harmony vocal overdub)

Spliced Takes - Ghetto Power

After last year's smash release STAX POWER the producers had to do this new release, made in the same editing style this will be THE must have 1969 release for it's 50th anniversary!

Including all tracks recorded and presented in a way as if it is one long session without pauses, this one kicks some serious A...

New splices create some extremely rare portions and extended versions and make them all sound brandnew! Also some Dubbed masters are spliced with Undubbed for a new listening experience.

Disc one starts of with a five (!) minute version of "Long Black Limousine" just listen to the emotion in his voice!

"This is the Story" has been created from the undubbed master, with some portions of the normal master, gives a totally new feel to the song.

A Little Bit of Green (4:28 minutes!) has an unusual rehearsal version spliced with some alternate takes, because of the slower pace of the rehearsal the producers have also slowed down these takes and it works very well, so you can enjoy a really different performance!

"Rubberneckin" rocks like never before due to the addition of the first "licks" of take 1

The extra chorus at the end of "Without Love" gives the song (if possible) an even more emotional "load"

"Suspicious Minds" includes a spliced version , some rehearsal portions and at the end we get the original master hit version... which was worth all the hard work and still rocks after all these years!

After almost 80 minutes it's time for disc two!

Again some cool extensions make them all sound very, very different.

"The Grass Won't Pay No Mind" (3:49 minutes) has been edited very cleverly at the end and brings you more "Elvis" then before. "Power of My Love" has a much longer intro, but due to the use of different takes (8 splices!) it all sounds very natural. On "Kentucky Rain" (5:22 minutes) Elvis does his own backing with the "Rain in my shoes" lyrics and the first verse has been repeated

We could go on, but almost all the tracks on this smash release sound new and fresh, and although every Elvis fan probably has at least 10 releases of these sessions.. This is the one we've been waiting for..... for 50 years!

Long Black Limousine - Spliced take 5,2,6,9
This is The Story - Alternate master

Strike Like Lightning!

The “STRAIGHT ARROW” label is back with its first release of 2019, titled “STRIKE LIKE LIGHTNING!” (SA/SP 2019- 56-02). We are aware of the fact that we have released 1974-1977 Elvis concerts of late. These releases were appreciated by the hardcore fans, but we strongly felt that the time had come for a change. On the 50th anniversary of Elvis' fantastic comeback in 1969, we are now able to release a tape that captures the electricity of that event. Until now, we had not released any 1969 live shows before, simply because most live tapes from that year are poor quality. Imagine our excitement when we got hold of a good sounding tape of a sensational gig from that magical year!

The August 8th, 1969 M/S is a previously unreleased recording, taken from a newly found audience recorded mastertape. This concert was never available in good sound quality thus far. There is a CDR with a so-called August 5th, 1969 M/S in circulation, which is the same concert, taken from an xxx-generation copy, but wrongly dated and in far inferior audio quality. Original cassette paperwork proves that this concert is definitely the August 8th, 1969 M/S!

As a small bonus, we have decided to add 4 tracks, recorded during the August 27th, 1969 D/S. Two of these tracks were released by the “Victrola” label on their conceptual 3CD album “FLESH, BLOOD AND BONE” but these were never before available in decent sound quality, before now.

As usual, this release is presented in a de-luxe 6-panel digipak, with a collection of photos taken in Las Vegas, NV, August 1969. Most of the photos were taken by Ann Moses, editor of Tiger Beat Magazine. Dig the psychedelic, period perfect artwork! As for the concert itself... wow, just wow! Elvis is groovy, sexy, earthy, charismatic, funny... And singing with real fire in his belly, never really heard again after this. Pure greatness.

It’s a new “STRAIGHT ARROW” so you know what to expect! Every second was digitally restored, every click manually removed, every drop-out fixed to achieve optimal listening pleasure. Ask your local dealer for samples to judge for yourself!

In 2019, the Straight Arrow team will focus especially on the concert years 1969-1972, so stay tuned. We're just warming up! … There's more comin'!
Tracklist:
01. Opening Theme - 02. Blue Suede Shoes - 03. I Got A Woman - 04. All Shook Up - 05. Love Me Tender - 06. Jailhouse Rock / Don't Be Cruel - 07. Heartbreak Hotel - 08. Hound Dog - 09. Memories - 10.

Update March 26, 2019


To be released in the middle of April, There’s no Tomorrow (SR Records) will focus on Elvis’ August 1973 Vegas season, featuring the midnight show from August 10, 1973, previously unreleased and taken directly from the original high quality tape.
The SR attitude is to present Elvis at the peak of his possibility and without any doubt Elvis’ first week in Vegas August season still 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 terrific, rough and sharp.

Elvis’ tolerance for Vegas has reached its limit in this season and the man will do nothing to hide it. But the beginning of the season is certainly promising and in this show in particular his enthusiasm shines through in every note . Elvis performs all the songs to the maximum of his possibilities, also pushing the band and giving the right time and presenting all the best of 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 in order to be able to obtain a result that you can enjoy too. The ambiance tape is of very good quality, as you can appreciate both Elvis and the band and at the same time you can feel and live the live atmosphere of the intimate Las Vegas Showroom. The show has already said is great, starting from his latest single Steamroller Blues then with autobiographical You Gave a Mountain & My Boy then with the anthem An American Trilogy passing the best single of 1969, Suspicious Minds without forgetting the glorious fifties with Heartbreak Hotel and Mystery Train…. All the songs are very well performed. The Best song We can say I Can’t Stop Loving You: both Elvis and the band are pushing strong with a great job of James Burton guitar.

This new SR special Product will be housed in a deluxe 300 grams single sleeve that includes together the 150 grams vinyl, a Bonus CD and bonus high glossy 300 grams 30x30 cm Art Card both sides printed.

In order to have a special collector’s item, the 400 copies will be presented with FOUR 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 400 COPIES.

As tradition of the label, SR LABEL DECIDED TO PRODUCE TOGETHER THE 400 copies of STANDARD EDITION A LIMITED DELUXE EDITION of 50 copies WITH EXCLUSIVE CONTENTS.

COLLECT THEM ALL!!!!!!

We’re always tryin’ to give more, We hope of this new release will be a real great update of your Elvis’ live show collection.

GUARANTEED TO BLOW YOUR MIND

Guaranteed to blow your mind, originally released in the late 90’s was the very first outing of the famous March 18, 1974 performance in Richmond Virginia. At the time it was probably the best sounding soundboard recording available. And it still is!

Luxor realizes the show was made available on vinyl before but as this is probably the best show of Elvis in 1974 we thought it just cannot be missed in the vinyl series of DAE / LUXOR. We have left out the pre-show as this part was already featured on the DAE release “LET ME TAKE YOU HOME”

The show is remastered and updated in the best way possible! This release is very limited and is available in red or blue vinyl presented in a gatefold sleeve. And of course the show is included on cd too. Get it while you can and add this awesome LUXOR product to your collection.

In 1969 Elvis made his triumphant return to live performances following his recent and successful TV special ‘Elvis’, nowadays better known as his ’68 Comeback’, in which we saw a Elvis that was unleashed and unplugged, singing his guts out like a roaring tiger, the real Elvis was back after years of making formula movies, Elvis returned with a passion that had been gone for quite some time.

The next step was Las Vegas, Nevada, Elvis would perform an almost month long engagement from July 31st until August 28, In the city that he failed to win over back in the 50’s. Obviously nervous, Elvis would be performing twice a day, but would the audience accept him this time?
The answer is a definite yes! Elvis sold out show after show, and the audience were ecstatic, with a new band selected by Elvis himself, and backing vocalists, Elvis conquered Las Vegas, singing his older hits Jailhouse Rock, Don’t Be Cruel, All Shook Up and Heartbreak Hotel but also recent hits like Suspicious Minds and In The Ghetto, while also showing some of his roots by playing the electric guitar, and performing select covers of artists and music styles that inspired him.

Return To Sender

Audionics label is back with its first release of 2019, called "RETURN TO SENDER... THE SUMMER OF '76".

Elvis first played Hampton Roads, VA on April 9th, 1972, two shows in a day. It was the beginning of his phenomenal April tour and the Hampton Roads evening show was filmed by MGM for the "Elvis On Tour" documentary. Elvis returned to Hampton Roads Coliseum on March 11th, 1974, and then again in 1976, for two shows on July 31st and August 1st matinee. It was his final appearance there.

1976 was a special year for the United States of America. The Bicentennial Year, the two-hundredth anniversary of this great nation. Most Americans wanted to show their patriotism in some way. Elvis wanted to spread a positive message about his country throughout this special year, and so he decided to add "America The Beautiful" to his set-list.

The August 1st, 1976 concert has often been described as a rather poor Elvis show - not because he was "out of it" or medicated - but because his voice was far from its best. Admittedly, it is true that his voice sounded tired, a bit hoarse and even flat in places, but still, Elvis did a solid job on several songs and his audience definitely enjoyed the show.

Nevertheless, there's no need to deny the fact that Elvis' vocal was far from perfect. It's equally obvious that Elvis was aware, too, because he told to his audience almost apologetically, "We had a late show last night, and I only got two hours of sleep" and "Good afternoon! God that sounds strange 'good afternoon'... I just got up!" Yup, the August 1st concert was a 2:30pm show, which was unusual as there was no 8:30pm show that day. Actually, the infamous Houston, August 28th, 1976 show was also a 2:30pm matinee, and after these shows, management decided not to program any afternoon shows in the future. 

The Hampton Roads show has one saving grace: Elvis decided to respond to the audience request for "Return To Sender", which was an impromptu performance, and a true live rarity. Elvis sings it reasonably well and it was the highlight of the concert.   

This show was originally released by the "Fort Baxter" label in 1995 and then re-released by "Gravel Road Music" label in 2012). "Gravel Road Music" label used the original Ft. Baxter CD as a source.

For this ultimate reissue, the Audionics team worked directly from a first generation soundboard tape transfer (RCA tape T0199) and made significant improvements to the audio. Both previous releases suffer from too much of reverb and compression. Audionics was able to work from the unprocessed and complete recording, which gives a more nuanced view of the concert. The original release on Ft. Baxter label was heavily compressed, which made Elvis' voice sound worse. We're not saying that this is now a fabulous concert, but the truth has many nuances, and this more natural sounding tape shows that despite some challenges, Elvis did a solid job and entertained the crowd that afternoon. 

Both previous releases were slightly incomplete, a part of Elvis' introduction of The Stamps was edited out, and the Closing Vamp was faded out very early. Our new release is the first to present this recording 100% complete as recorded, and the Closing Vamp is now also complete, including the after show announcements: certainly proof that we went back to the original tape. Most important, the sound is now far more natural too, and with much better dynamics.

As a bonus, Audionics decided to add small collection of songs recorded during 1976 Summer tours. Tracks 29 & 30 were previously released on The Final Homecoming" 2CD (by Audionics, 2009), track 31 was released on "Houston We Have A Problem" CD (again Audionics 2013). All bonus tracks were newly restored and mastered from scratch.

This CD is presented in 3-panel digipak. Due to the lack of quality photographs from the Hampton Roads concert, great collection of various high quality concert shots from Summer of 1976 has been used.

So now you have the chance to obtain the ultimate release of the famous "Return to Sender" concert. This recording never sounded better. It is dynamic, detailed, and in crystal clear sound! You may ask your import CD dealer for audio samples.

01. Introduction: Also Sprach Zarathustra - 02. C. C. Rider - 03. I Got A Woman / Amen - 04. Love Me - 05. If You Love Me, Let Me Know - 06. You Gave Me A Mountain - 07. All Shook Up - 08.

A Shining Star

As we begin 2019, E. P. Collector label is coming with another surprise! The Las Vegas, August 28, 1972 Midnight show is previously unreleased and moreover, it was never available in solid sound, until now!
It’s not easy to write something new about the August 1972 Las Vegas shows, without
repeating well-known facts. Nevertheless, there’s one thing that stands out – it was Elvis’ very last Vegas season when he was singing consistently well during all of his concerts. There was not a single average or controversial show and no cancellations, either. Compared to Elvis’ April and November ’72 tours, where he was noticeably bloated and pale in the face, in August he was trim and suntanned. He looked absolutely great and his voice was excellent, too.

This is Elvis performing at his finest in Vegas, just before things went down the tube. There are no surprises, but his singing on this newly obtained audience tape is so good that it’s a delight to listen to this, following too many recent releases from his final years. It’s refreshing to hear the man deliver the goods in a no-nonsense fashion, singing the hell out of the ballads and rockin’ like a freight train on the up-tempo stuff. The set list may well be the best that he did in the seventies, and especially in this rather decent sound quality, this makes for a highly listenable CD. We think you’ll be pleasantly surprised with this one! You may ask your supplier for audio clips.

This CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipak with collection of great images taken during August/September 1972 concerts.

If you've enjoyed our previous August 1972 releases from the „FROM JAPAN WITH LOVE” miniseries, called „A Sensational Opening Night“, „Everybody Let’s Rock” and


„Heart And Soul… And Some Mighty Fine Rock’n’Roll“, then you are sure to enjoy our
forthcoming release, too!

Tracklist:
01. Also Sprach Zarathustra (2001 Theme) - 02. C. C. Rider - 03. Johnny B. Goode - 04. Until
It’s Time For You To Go - 05. You Don’t Have To Say You Love Me - 06. You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’ - 07. Polk Salad Annie - 08. Instrumental Intermezzo - 09. What Now My Love (with false start) - 10. Fever - 11. Love Me - 12. Blue Suede Shoes - 13. Heartbreak Hotel -
14. All Shook Up - 15. Love Me Tender - 16. Hound Dog - 17. I’ll Remember You - 18. Walk That Lonesome Road (J. D. Sumner & The Stamps Quartet) - 19. Suspicious Minds - 20. Band Introductions - 21. My Way - 22. A Big Hunk Of Love - 23. You Gave Me A Mountain - 24.

In 1980 Felton Jarvis, Elvis' record producer for the last decade came to the remarkable idea to freshen up some of Elvis' recordings. The idea was to add total new backing tracks to Elvis' voice. This resulted in the 1981 record release of "Guitar Man". You hate it or you love it is probably the right thing to say about the album. Felton was convinced Elvis would have loved it. The title track "Guitar Man" written and first performed by Jerry Reed was one of the tracks considered for the album. Jerry Reed was part of the original recording by Elvis in 1967 and now Jerry Reed was back in the studio with Felton Jarvis to work on the new album. Besides the guitar work he also recorded a "duet" version of the song.

This version never made it to the album but it probably should have. Felton finished the track most likely for his own pleasure or maybe it was considered to end up on the album. We probably will never know as Felton Jarvis sadly passed away early January 1981 even before the album came out. The second track on this 45RPM / CD combo is "HELP ME". The song written by Larry Gatlin of Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers. This track was not used on the GUITAR MAN album. This track has overdubs by the Gatlin Brothers and when you listen to it you will notice this version was probably not finished by Felton Jarvis, this is either an "early version" or he never go to the point of finishing it due to his untimely death. Before the album would be released the idea raised to record a so called open-ended interview with Felton Jarvis for the radio stations. Disk Jockeys would be able to ask a question and Felton would answer the question that would be played from a record. The recording for this open-ended interview would take place somewhere in the last week of December. On December 16 1980 Jerry Flowers visited Felton to discuss the questions and prepare the interview. Jerry Flowers recorded this meeting as a test for the upcoming interview. The official interview never took place as Felton Jarvis suffered a stroke on December 19. Resulting in his death January 3rd 1981. RCA decided to release the informal recording on a record for Radio Stations. This complete recording is now available on this cd.
This 45RPM plus CD is available in yellow & purple vinyl.

Update February 1, 2019



First In Line

To be released soon, First In Line (MxF Records) featuring both the shows performed by Elvis in Las Vegas NV, Hilton Hotel on February 01, 1974 DS&MS. Both the previously unreleased shows are taken directly from a first generation tape.

After the deserved rest of 5 months, Elvis is back in Las Vegas Hilton. A new contract has been signed by Elvis, he wants to perform twice a year, but only two weeks at a time rather than the previous four. Starting from January 12th Elvis starts the rehearsal of his 10th Las Vegas Season, on Saturday 26th He opened the season dressed in a white jumpsuit in good spirit and in good shape too. The repertoire was reduced compared to the previous season to 15/20 songs with three new additions: Help me, Spanish Eyes and the popular Let Me Be There. The choice of songs in the different shows varied little, in particular in the two shows here presented the only variation is the song The First Time Ever I Saw your face that replaces the now classic Let Me Be There in the Midnight Show.

Speaking about the two unreleased shows, they are very similar, the track list is minimized and the shows are practically identical, but we are talking about of two concerts of very good quality and well performed with the audience very pleased by the shows. Elvis is bringing back the rocker Polk Salad Annie and his performing of the classic Trying To get To You never sounded better, searching the best song is very hard because all the songs are very well performed, but for sure Elvis’ joy while performing the popular Let Me Be There is undeniable, often singing also the reprise.

The sound is very good for ambient recordings, we have on our hands the original mono tapes of extremely good quality enabling us to carry out a simple re-mastering work, concentrating on the reduction of noise, hiss, and clicks, but we always give priority to the integrity of the original recording, trying to achieve a clearer sound in spite of the background noise. The result is a pretty dynamic tape with a great definition of the background music and you definitely can live the atmosphere of an Elvis’ concert in the seventies. This new SR special Product will be housed in a deluxe LONG DIGIPACK, containing 8 pages of a foldout booklet that in one side opening gives life to a great poster, while the backside is full of backstage photos of the season with classic memorabilia and newspaper clippings plus a high glossy paper bonus art card of 25x13 cm of size.

To have a special collector’s item, the 400 copies will be presented with four different sleeve VARIATIONS. The variations will also be extended to the internal poster and to the coloring of the digipack spine. All the copies will come hand numbered and individually sealed and please remember!! These are LIMITED HAND NUMBERED 400 COPIES

For the first time, MxF LABEL DECIDED TO PRODUCE WITH THE 400 copies of the STANDARD EDITION A LIMITED BOXED DELUXE EDITION of 100 copies WITH EXCLUSIVE CONTENTS.

Out in a few days - Elvis - April 10 1972, Richmond

A fantastic double CD album taken from the original 8 and 16 track master tapes!

Label:  Victrola 2018-03-2

Victrola label is proud to present Elvis’ powerhouse concert in Richmond Coliseum on April 10th 1972.

Welcome to another spectacular ‘Elvis On Tour’ release, brought to you by the Victrola label. Our recent ‘Greensboro, April 14, ‘72’ release was very well received, despite some reviewers failing to point out the fact that we presented a genuine, recently prepared, unreleased mix of the show as well as unreleased bits and pieces of the rehearsals on disc two.

The April 10, 1972 Richmond, VA concert was released several times by various labels. Only two releases stands out: original 1995 Vicky label CD ‘Carry Me Back To Old Virginia’ - first ever release of this show in mono (incomplete) and 2008 Madison label CD ‘Red Hot In Richmond’ - first release in original 1972 narrow stereo (complete).

Richmond concert was never available in professionally remixed quality - until now! For the first time, these are actual multi-track master recordings that have been used as a source for this show.

In 2013, Richmond show was remixed in renewed studio, using original 8- and 16-track tapes for an audiovisual project which was never finished and new mix was stored back in the vaults of the record company. Victrola label obtained original 2013 remix together with Greensboro show and decided to release it due to its absolutely stunning sound quality. Richmond show never sounded better!

Critics, predictably, will point out that this can’t be true because ‘Lawdy Miss Clawdy’ is still incomplete and therefore Victorola can’t be having an original recording and mix of this show. Well, in fact we do have that. We also have the original ‘On Tour’ paperwork from the vaults.

Upon reading this paperwork it becomes clear that the ‘On Tour’ shows were recorded in both 16-track and 8-track. The reason behind recording it on both 16- and 8-track is probably due to the fact that it was a) not a regular concert recording but also the recording of a soundtrack for a movie and b) the 8-track could also be meant as a safety back-up, just in case something went wrong with the 16-track recording.

The official paperwork also reveals that almost half of the Richmond show is in the Sony vaults on 16-track tapes, the other half is on 8-track tapes. It makes one wonder if some of the original 16-track tapes are missing or are in the hands of collectors or are perhaps stored in the MGM vaults? The paperwork also proves that ‘Lawdy Miss Clawdy’ was not (!) recorded other than only a very small snippet of the beginning of the song. ‘Lawdy Miss Clawdy’ from the Richmond show is listed in the official paperwork as being ‘Film Company Number: 51’. The paperwork then reads:‘One (1) 8 track copy of original recording (overlaps and songs missing)’. Then there are handwritten notes, also from the vaults, of someone writing down about what is on the ‘On Tour’ tapes. The writer notes about ‘Lawdy Miss Clawdy’ of the Richmond show: ‘brief’. In other words: short / incomplete. So there you have it: some of the ‘On Tour’ recordings in the Sony vaults are incomplete and ‘Lawdy Miss Clawdy’ was not recorded in full and therefore missing from the tape.
Obviously the ‘main course’ of our release is the spectacular sounding Richmond concert on disc one, with the incomplete ‘Lawdy Miss Clawdy’, but fortunately only the start of the song is missing.

We have added second disc with ‘an overview’ of ‘Elvis On Tour’, featuring songs recorded during the March 1972 studio rehearsal sessions in Hollywood, CA and live songs from April 9, 1972 Hampton Roads, VA evening show and April 18, 1972 San Antonio, TX in glorious stereo. We have included two great monaural tracks from the April 5th 1972, Buffalo rehearsal, too.

This disc starts with the (little bit naughty) March 30, 1972 take 2 rehearsal of ‘Burning Love’. This time in better sound then before. We all know that when Elvis starts changing lyrics and laughing, he is in a great mood. Through several interesting rehearsals we come to a collection of songs from above mentioned shows recorded for ‘On Tour’. All these tracks are taken from the original tapes and latest, unreleased, mixes from the vaults. Your special attention is requested for the great sound on the recordings of San Antonio, TX, April 18, 1972!

As a very pleasant and special feature, we have added 8 tracks recorded during Elvis concerts in Madison Square Garden on June 10, 1972. All these recordings come in a different mix, prepared back in 1972 by RCA in Japan. This mix is very rare and hardly ever heard. It features some instruments much more prominent in the mix such as the organ and Glen D. Hardin on piano and some errors (feedbacks) which were later repaired in studio. The sound is fantastic and we feel that the recording of ‘The Impossible Dream’ shines more than ever before.

We sincerely hope you will enjoy this second Victrola release, featuring material from ‘Elvis On Tour’ and recognize the fact that we are bringing you this material in the best quality possible.

All tracks were taken from original sources and digitally restored and remastered in renewed studio for your listening pleasure. CD1 all tracks are stereo. CD2 all tracks are stereo except for tracks 9 & 10.

''Elvis April 10, 1972 Richmond'' release is presented in a deluxe double digipak accompanied with a 16-page booklet. Most of photos used for this project were taken in Richmond, April 10, 1972. Front cover cool image was taken in El Paso, November 10, 1972. Additional photos from Hampton Roads, April 09, 1972, selected March/April 1972 candid shots and photos taken during Madison Square Garden performances in June 1972 have also been added

The Victrola label is planning more releases in 2019, including fantastic 180grams vinyl versions of Greensboro and Richmond concerts in a beautiful gatefold sleeve, and with a large booklet filled with many rare pix and several interesting CDs too, so stay tuned!

Richmond concert was never available in professionally remixed quality - until now! For the first time, these are actual multi-track master recordings that have been used as a source for this show.

In 2013, Richmond show was remixed in renewed studio, using original 8- and 16-track tapes for an audiovisual project which was never finished and new mix was stored back in the vaults of the record company. Victrola label obtained original 2013 remix together with Greensboro show and decided to release it due to its absolutely stunning sound quality. Richmond show never sounded better!

Critics, predictably, will point out that this can’t be true because ‘Lawdy Miss Clawdy’ is still incomplete and therefore Victorola can’t be having an original recording and mix of this show. Well, in fact we do have that. We also have the original ‘On Tour’ paperwork from the vaults.

Upon reading this paperwork it becomes clear that the ‘On Tour’ shows were recorded in both 16-track and 8-track. The reason behind recording it on both 16- and 8-track is probably due to the fact that it was a) not a regular concert recording but also the recording of a soundtrack for a movie and b) the 8-track could also be meant as a safety back-up, just in case something went wrong with the 16-track recording.

The official paperwork also reveals that almost half of the Richmond show is in the Sony vaults on 16-track tapes, the other half is on 8-track tapes. It makes one wonder if some of the original 16-track tapes are missing or are in the hands of collectors or are perhaps stored in the MGM vaults? The paperwork also proves that ‘Lawdy Miss Clawdy’ was not (!) recorded other than only a very small snippet of the beginning of the song. ‘Lawdy Miss Clawdy’ from the Richmond show is listed in the official paperwork as being ‘Film Company Number: 51’. The paperwork then reads:‘One (1) 8 track copy of original recording (overlaps and songs missing)’. Then there are handwritten notes, also from the vaults, of someone writing down about what is on the ‘On Tour’ tapes. The writer notes about ‘Lawdy Miss Clawdy’ of the Richmond show: ‘brief’. In other words: short / incomplete. So there you have it: some of the ‘On Tour’ recordings in the Sony vaults are incomplete and ‘Lawdy Miss Clawdy’ was not recorded in full and therefore missing from the tape.
Obviously the ‘main course’ of our release is the spectacular sounding Richmond concert on disc one, with the incomplete ‘Lawdy Miss Clawdy’, but fortunately only the start of the song is missing.

We have added second disc with ‘an overview’ of ‘Elvis On Tour’, featuring songs recorded during the March 1972 studio rehearsal sessions in Hollywood, CA and live songs from April 9, 1972 Hampton Roads, VA evening show and April 18, 1972 San Antonio, TX in glorious stereo. We have included two great monaural tracks from the April 5th 1972, Buffalo rehearsal, too.

This disc starts with the (little bit naughty) March 30, 1972 take 2 rehearsal of ‘Burning Love’. This time in better sound then before. We all know that when Elvis starts changing lyrics and laughing, he is in a great mood. Through several interesting rehearsals we come to a collection of songs from above mentioned shows recorded for ‘On Tour’. All these tracks are taken from the original tapes and latest, unreleased, mixes from the vaults. Your special attention is requested for the great sound on the recordings of San Antonio, TX, April 18, 1972!

As a very pleasant and special feature, we have added 8 tracks recorded during Elvis concerts in Madison Square Garden on June 10, 1972. All these recordings come in a different mix, prepared back in 1972 by RCA in Japan. This mix is very rare and hardly ever heard. It features some instruments much more prominent in the mix such as the organ and Glen D. Hardin on piano and some errors (feedbacks) which were later repaired in studio. The sound is fantastic and we feel that the recording of ‘The Impossible Dream’ shines more than ever before.

We sincerely hope you will enjoy this second Victrola release, featuring material from ‘Elvis On Tour’ and recognize the fact that we are bringing you this material in the best quality possible.

All tracks were taken from original sources and digitally restored and remastered in renewed studio for your listening pleasure. CD1 all tracks are stereo. CD2 all tracks are stereo except for tracks 9 & 10.

''Elvis April 10, 1972 Richmond'' release is presented in a deluxe double digipak accompanied with a 16-page booklet. Most of photos used for this project were taken in Richmond, April 10, 1972. Front cover cool image was taken in El Paso, November 10, 1972. Additional photos from Hampton Roads, April 09, 1972, selected March/April 1972 candid shots and photos taken during Madison Square Garden performances in June 1972 have also been added

The Victrola label is planning more releases in 2019, including fantastic 180grams vinyl versions of Greensboro and Richmond concerts in a beautiful gatefold sleeve, and with a large booklet filled with many rare pix and several interesting CDs too, so stay tuned!

Update November 29, 2018

The Asheville Marathon

Out now:
The well known Import label “AudiRec” is back with a very nice and special 4 CD box, titled “THE ASHEVILLE MARATHON” (AudiRec AR 197507234-2). Hear three of the most unusual Elvis Presley Shows of the 1970´s! When Elvis came to Asheville, NC in late July of 1975 to play the final shows of his running tour, he was indeed in a “giving” mood. Elvis delivered a whole bunch of rarely performed song material and handled a big part of them in a kind of “Elvis By Request” style. Since his Record Company RCA was not on hand to record these shows professionally, we can be thankful that fans did record the shows at least with private (non-professional) equipment. One thing is clear: It would have been a big pity if none of those three shows would have been recorded and therefore been “lost” forever. In July 1975, Elvis played 21 shows in 11 different cities. This tour was rated as being one of the very best in Elvis' last years. His powerful vocal delivery, his entertaining mood and his willingness to improvise various unusual songs are what make this tour such a stand-out, and the final 3 shows in Asheville, NC were simply stunning! In Asheville Elvis also played the longest shows of the tour and performed many rarely sung songs. He was kind of promoting his new album “ELVIS TODAY” with “Shake A Hand”, “Fairytale”, “T.R.O.U.B.L.E.” and “Pieces Of My Life”. More than any time before he was interacting with his audience, singing songs by request. For example “Memphis Tennessee”, “An American Trilogy”, “Heartbreak Hotel”, “Jailhouse Rock”, “Something”, “Return To Sender” or “Wooden Heart”.

Elvis was in a hilarious mood. He gave away several golden rings and a fan in the first row - Mike Harris from Asheville - was lucky to get Elvis’ Gibson Ebony Dove guitar! It was the famous guitar which Elvis used in Aloha From Hawaii. Later in the show, Mike Harris thought Elvis was gonna ask for the guitar back, but Elvis leaned down and said: “'No that's yours. I gave that to you for a reason, and it's gonna help you out some day.” These shows were previously released, but all original releases are very hard to find now. Instead of doing a simple “copy & paste” job, we have asked our friends from SA to help us to enhance the sound from scratch, so we are sure that those shows never sounded better! The release is presented in a strong and stable 25 x 14 cm de-luxe 4 CD Long-Box accompanied by a 16-page booklet, filled with a great collection of photos taken in Asheville and press reviews. To make our release even more attractive for serious collectors, we present it in 3 different variations. It means 3 different covers and each cover´s got its own disc labels, too! The content of the CD´s does of course NOT vary! Choose the one version you like most or “collect all three”! In any case do not miss the opportunity to own your copy / copies of “THE ASHEVILLE MARATHON“! It’s the ultimate release of Elvis' magical July 1975 Asheville shows!

THE SOUND OF YOUR CRY
THE SOUND OF YOUR CRY together with it’s American equivalent GREATEST HITS VOLUME 1 always bring back some fine memories. The unique mixes on these two albums make these albums everlasting fan favorites. “The sound of your cry” has never been available on cd until now. Added are the tracks that were featured on “greatest hits volume 1” that were not featured on “the sound of your cry”. All versions are the correct versions as featured on the two albums and some are still unique to these albums only. For example the extended version of “It’s Only Love” and the unique edit of “What’d I Say” are among the gems that make this album unique. Also worth mentioning are great mixes of “Angel” & “Steamroller Blues”. Probably the best compilation album till date.

All tracks are remastered and sound fantastic.

Bumps Are Gone But He's Still King!

Our new CD is titled "BUMPS ARE GONE BUT HE’S STILL KING! (E. P. Collector label, catalogue number EPC 2018-19).

The Hartford, July 28th, 1976 show is previously unreleased in complete audience recorded form. Audionics label released parts of this show taken from soundboard source (CD "Across The Country," 2005). Unfortunately, complete soundboard recording of this concert do not exist. The E. P. Collector label had complete audience tape of very good sound quality in vaults for many, many years and finally decided to release it. July 28th, 1976 is longest and perhaps the best show from this particular tour. Among the concert highlights there are fantastic performances of ,,Jailhouse Rock“, „America“, „Polk Salad Annie“ and „Hurt“. There is one special moment too, when Elvis sing „Happy Birthday“, to Kitty Kahane, daughter of Elvis friend, comedian Jackie Kahane.

This show was restored with a great care with a focus on not changing the integrity of the original monaural recording. You may ask your supplier for samples. If you are fan of good audience recordings, we bet that you will like the sound!

This CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipak with concert review and collection of images taken during Hartford concert on July 28, 1976.

If you have enjoyed our previous 1976 releases like „The First Time Ever I Lay With You“ and „Looked Into The Wings”, then you are sure to enjoy our latest release, too.

We would like to thank you for your continuing support. We are planning some surprises for 2019, including totally new shows, so stay tuned!

STAX POWER
CMT stays close to their "Spliced Take" concept on this new release, although this is an album which stands on its own.
While editing this album they have made all songs "blending in" so you will get the feeling as if you are in the actual session with no pauses.

All tracks from the "Stax Sessions" have been included in this 2 cd set.

One of the highlights is a breathtaking version of "Sweet Angeline" which has a longer intro and an instrumental break featuring Kathy Westmoreland, 
Other must haves are longer intro's for "Just A Little Bit" and "I Got A Feeling in My Body" and a new ending for "It's Midnight" 
Rehearsals go straight into the songs, and there are some funny portions mixed in.
If you liked the previous CMT releases you will LOVE this one, and we guarantee it will not leave your player before (and after) 2019!!

WONDERFUL WINTER WONDERLAND
This spliced take special is another winner in the great series and needs no further introduction.
One thing we do want to mention is the newly created "harmony" version of "The Wonderful World of Christmas", 
although there are no outtakes available the CMT team managed to make a very different sounding track, where
even the vocal ending is far different then the master take! Also just listen to the newly overdubbed version of 
"Merry Christmas Baby" which has been re-created from THREE different overdub versions.
All the other tracks are spliced very well, with longer intro's and great edits!

Let Me Take You Home (double vinyl + 2 CD)

23 years after the first DIAMOND ANNIVERSARY EDITIONS release "old times they are not forgotten" the DAE team has joined together for some very special vinyl releases. The first two titles : HERE I GO AGAIN & OLD TIMES TEY ARE NOT FORGOTTEN were a complete sell out and was well recieved by vinyl freaks. Now the second cd that was released by DAE is available on this deluxe double vinyl album “Let Me Take You Home”. It contains the June 10 1975 show. And it's a beauty!

We believe this new updated double album is the best outing of this show till now! And of course the show is included on cd too. The show is remastered and updated in the best way possible! This set also includes a bonus cd containing the comedy act and the pre-show.

This release is very limited and is available in red or blue vinyl presented in a gatefold sleeve.

Avventura In Oriente

Victrola label is proud to present an ultimate release of Elvis’ ''HARUM SCARUM' movie soundtrack material.

What makes this new release so special? Most of it has been released before, but never before in such pristine quality!
The outtakes come from a direct copy of a DAT cassette that was made on November 1989 in New York City.
It was a surprise to discover masters that we had not heard in the way before. On this DAT copy there were also other outtakes from other studio sessions. Most of these outtakes have been released before but never before have they been heard in stereo. The special feature of the Harum Scarum sessions is that the songs were recorded with two drummers that can also be heard simultaneously, this is clearly audible in the sessions.
The mono masters come from the first English pressing of the UK LP Harem Holiday. What you hear is the authentic sound that was on the LP.
As this release deals with the year 1965, some other songs are included on this release as a bonus features, i.e.:
- Crying In the Chapel: was issued on April 6, 1965, in RCA's 'Gold Standard Series'. It became Elvis' first million seller (!) since 'Return To Sender' in 1962 and his greatest chart success over a six-year span.
- (Such An) Easy Question: was released as a single on June 8, 1965. It was the follow-up release to 'Crying In The Chapel' and peaked at number 11 on the US Billboard Hot 100. The single reached the top of the Billboard Easy Listening Chart, spending two weeks at number one in July 1965. The song was also included on the soundtrack for the movie 'Tickle Me', released on June 3, 1965.

You can expect same great quality! The recording that we obtained was again mixed down from the original 8- and 16-track masters fairly recently and stored back in the vaults. We know you will be thrilled when you hear this recording, which has the signature of the best Elvis live mixes released officially thus far. The wide, dynamic stereo sound is just friggin' unbelievable and puts you right in that Richmond audience.

„Elvis April 10, 1972 Richmond“ release will be presented in a deluxe double digipak, accompanied with a 16-page booklet. More details and track listing will be published soon, so stay tuned!

Update October 14, 2018

I'm Saved

The year is 1968.
After several years of making movies without personal appearances things are about to change.
This new release is purely fictional and presents Elvis Presley’s Comeback Special in a totally different way; Elvis is hosting his own TV Special and tells his side of the story.
Elvis talks about his career, first record and Hollywood. His personal life, tragedies, future plans and God, giving you an intimate look at his life and career in a way only he can.
Including rare footage and home movies , original clips from the movies, and some cool vintage commercials from 1968! (Yes, the Big Mac also has its 50th anniversary!)
Presented in "True” widescreen for the first time! Not stretching out Elvis body or face, but all shots individually repaired for the best result!

The opening is sensational and has a FULL version of Trouble/Guitar Man, including Elvis' footage from the Discotheque, Supper Club, wearing Black leather as well as the original version all edited to perfection!
After the first "Elvis Speaks" part the show starts with some of his first Sun Records; That’s All Right, Trying To Get To You and Tiger Man get the special really started!
Most clips have been re-edited for watching pleasure, for example the “break up" version of Heartbreak Hotel (second sit down) has been recreated as a full rockin’ version! Same goes for That’s All Right and Blue Suede Shoes; full versions without repeatable parts, making some portions shorter then usual but it all works quite well for the overall “feel” of this Special.
The gospel section also has been re-done including rare alternate footage and performances. All songs have been re-edited.
Elvis talks through the whole special and lots of rare footage accompanies him while doing so.
We already can hear all the critics...."Why include the boring commercials” .. but it is part of the idea of recreating something in a way as if it is 1968 and this special was shown on TV, including commercial breaks. Don’t worry.. you can skip them if you like .. but we advise not to do this the first time you watch it.
All fans must agree that 1968 “Saved” Elvis' career, so no need to explain why the producers of this DVD called it: “I'M SAVED"
Sit back and relax, and let Elvis take you on a musical journey through his Life.
You’ve all heard the stories... Now hear the true ones from the man himself!
STRICTLY LIMITED TO 500 COPIES!!
You can see the trailer here https://youtu.be/CDtsZ6ujyw4 ( Of course the quality is better on the original DVD release!!)
We’re not saying it is better, but it’s approach could have been at least as good for actual viewing at the time.

The Asheville Marathon

The well known Import label “AudiRec” is back with a very nice and special 4 CD box, titled “THE ASHEVILLE MARATHON” (AudiRec AR 197507234-2). Hear three of the most unusual Elvis Presley Shows of the 1970´s! When Elvis came to Asheville, NC in late July of 1975 to play the final shows of his running tour, he was indeed in a “giving” mood. Elvis delivered a whole bunch of rarely performed song material and handled a big part of them in a kind of “Elvis By Request” style. Since his Record Company RCA was not on hand to record these shows professionally, we can be thankful that fans did record the shows at least with private (non-professional) equipment. One thing is clear: It would have been a big pity if none of those three shows would have been recorded and therefore been “lost” forever. In July 1975, Elvis played 21 shows in 11 different cities. This tour was rated as being one of the very best in Elvis' last years. His powerful vocal delivery, his entertaining mood and his willingness to improvise various unusual songs are what make this tour such a stand-out, and the final 3 shows in Asheville, NC were simply stunning! In Asheville Elvis also played the longest shows of the tour and performed many rarely sung songs. He was kind of promoting his new album “ELVIS TODAY” with “Shake A Hand”, “Fairytale”, “T.R.O.U.B.L.E.” and “Pieces Of My Life”. More than any time before he was interacting with his audience, singing songs by request. For example “Memphis Tennessee”, “An American Trilogy”, “Heartbreak Hotel”, “Jailhouse Rock”, “Something”, “Return To Sender” or “Wooden Heart”.

Elvis was in a hilarious mood. He gave away several golden rings and a fan in the first row - Mike Harris from Asheville - was lucky to get Elvis’ Gibson Ebony Dove guitar! It was the famous guitar which Elvis used in Aloha From Hawaii. Later in the show, Mike Harris thought Elvis was gonna ask for the guitar back, but Elvis leaned down and said: “'No that's yours. I gave that to you for a reason, and it's gonna help you out some day.” These shows were previously released, but all original releases are very hard to find now. Instead of doing a simple “copy & paste” job, we have asked our friends from SA to help us to enhance the sound from scratch, so we are sure that those shows never sounded better! The release is presented in a strong and stable 25 x 14 cm de-luxe 4 CD Long-Box accompanied by a 16-page booklet, filled with a great collection of photos taken in Asheville and press reviews. To make our release even more attractive for serious collectors, we present it in 3 different variations. It means 3 different covers and each cover´s got its own disc labels, too! The content of the CD´s does of course NOT vary! Choose the one version you like most or “collect all three”! In any case do not miss the opportunity to own your copy / copies of “THE ASHEVILLE MARATHON“! It’s the ultimate release of Elvis' magical July 1975 Asheville shows!

Black Tornado

Our new 2CD is titled "BLACK TORNADO (E. P. Collector label, catalogue number EPC 2018-17A/B).

Now, when majority of Elvis import labels is only re-releasing old stuff in new packages, E. P. Collector label is coming with another surprise! The Cleveland, November 6, 1976 Afternoon & Evening shows are previously unreleased and moreover, they were never available in listenable sound, until now!

Elvis November ’71 tour was rated as one of Elvis’ very best in the 70s. Compared with previous tours in September and November 1970, individual shows were longer and set list was variable more than before. It was the only tour in 1971 and it was the last time when Elvis was accompanied by The Imperials, too. Elvis played 14 shows in 12 days in 12 different cities.

Among the concert highlights there are fantastic performances of ,,Proud Mary“, „You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling“, „How Great Thou Art“ „I’m Leavin’“, „Bridge Over Troubled Water“, „Lawdy Miss Clawdy“ and „ The Impossible Dream“.

Both concerts are taken from direct transfers of recently-found original audience-recorded cassette tapes. Those shows were recorded by Elvis fan Joyce Bauer, who passed away a couple of years ago. She followed much of Elvis' 1971 tour in November, and her tapes have never been in circulation before. You may ask your supplier for samples.

This CD is packaged in a nicely designed double digipak with collection of images taken during both shows, reprints concert tickets and various press reviews and newspaper clippings.

If you have enjoyed our previous releases called „The First Time Ever I Lay With You“ and „Looked Into The Wings”, then you are sure to enjoy our latest release, too.

Update September 21, 2018


3 NEW SINGLE CD RELEASES FROM STRAIGHT ARROW OUT SOON!

RUMBLE IN RHODE ISLAND: Musical Chairs at The King's Lair

Our first release is titled “Rumble In Rhode Island: Musical Chairs at The King’s Lair”. This is Straight Arrow’s very first release from Elvis' June/July 1974 tour and the Providence concert is easily one of the best of the tour!

The Straight Arrow team is always looking for rare, unknown or seemingly lost recordings. Once again, the labels researchers were successful - the Providence, June 22nd, 1974 3pm is a completely new show, even for die-hard Elvis fans. It has never been in circulation - in any form! (note: there is CDR with a so-called Providence, June 22, 1974 Afternoon show in circulation, but this one is wrongly dated recording, in fact this is the evening show).

Our CD is taken directly from an original audience recorded mastertape source. It was recorded by the same guy who taped those other Providence concerts on June 26, 1976 (afternoon) and the May 23rd, 1977 shows, which we released in 2011 („Matinee Majesty“ and „Funny How Time Slips Away“, both hard to find CDs now). The sound quality is very good for an off-line recording in a big auditorium. Highlights include a pounding 'Big Boss Man', and a truly dynamite 'Trying To Get To You'. 'Help Me' is sung with great warmth and sincerity.

This release is presented in a de-luxe 6-panel digipak. Unfortunately, only very few useful Providence June 22, 1974 3pm photos were available, and other shots taken during June/July 1974 tour have been used.

Tracklist:
01. Introduction: Also Sprach Zarathustra - 02. C. C. Rider - 03. I Got A Woman / Amen - 04. Love Me - 05. Tryin' To Get To You - 06. All Shook Up - 07. Love Me Tender - 08. Hound Dog - 09. Fever - 10. Polk Salad Annie - 11. Why Me Lord - 12. Suspicious Minds - 13. Introductions of singers, musicians, orchestra - 14. I Can't Stop Loving You - 15. Help Me - 16. An American Trilogy - 17. Let Me Be There (with reprise) - 18. Funny How Time Slips Away - 19. Big Boss Man - 20. (Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear / Don't Be Cruel - 21. Can't Help Falling In Love - 22. Closing Vamp / Announcements.

MY WISH CAME TRUE

Our second release is titled „My Wish Came True“. It was the 1st tour of 1977 and in spite of his unhealthy look, Elvis was in solid voice - especially near the end of the tour. February 20 is one of best shows of the tour and it marked the first time that Elvis attempted his recent single „Moody Blue“.

Our release has been taken directly from a 1st generation copy of an original audience recorded master cassette tape, as recorded by Claude Baker (aka Crazy Canuck), who passed away in September 2016. Claude attended, and recorded, all of Elvis' shows during the February tour of 1977.

Portions of the Charlotte concert were previously released from a soundboard tape on the official 'Follow That Dream' label, but this show has never been available on CD in its entirety before. Note: This is the very last audience-recorded show from the February 1977 tour that is still unreleased. The sound quality is very good. There are highlights a-plenty, including a soulful 'You Gave Me A Mountain', strong versions of 'My Way' and 'How Great Thou Art', and a truly gorgeous 'Unchained Melody'.

As usual, this release is presented in a de-luxe 6-panel digipak, with a collection of photos taken in Charlotte, February 20th, 1977 and two local press reviews. With special thanks to our dear friend, the late Bob Heis.

Tracklist:
01. Introduction: Also Sprach Zarathustra - 02. C. C. Rider - 03. I Got A Woman / Amen - 04. Love Me - 05. Fairytale - 06. You Gave Me A Mountain - 07. Jailhouse Rock - 08. O Sole Mio (Sherrill Nielsen) / It's Now Or Never - 09. Little Sister - 10. (Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear/Don't Be Cruel - 11. My Way - 12. Moody Blue (excerpt) - 13. How Great Thou Art - 14. Introductions of singers, musicians, orchestra - 15. Early Mornin' Rain - 16. What'd I Say - 17. Johnny B. Goode - 18. Drum Solo (Ronnie Tutt) - 19. Bass Solo #1 (Blues - Jerry Scheff) - 20. Bass Solo #2 (Battle Of New Orleans - Jerry Scheff) - 21. Piano Solo (Tony Brown) - 22. Love Letters - 23. School Day - 24. Hurt (with reprise) - 25. Hound Dog - 26. My Wish Came True (excerpt) - 27. Unchained Melody (with false start) - 28. Can't Help Falling In Love - 29. Closing Vamp / Announcements.

THERE'S A SWEET SPIRIT IN THIS PLACE

Our 3rd CD in this batch is somewhat special. Originally we planned only the two CDs above. But just weeks ago we were suddenly able to obtain this very interesting recording in excellent sound - and complete. We are aware of the fact that there is a so-called May 4th, 1976 D/S in circulation, but it presents only half of the show in average sound. It was even spliced with about 30 minutes of May 2nd, 1976 D/S! What we are releasing now is the real McCoy, folks!

So now for the first time ever - in excellent audience recorded sound, and complete from beginning to the end! The show is a true delight - Elvis is in a relaxed mood, singing remarkably well... Best show & best sound of the season!

This release is presented in a de-luxe 6-panel digipak with a collection of photos taken in Lake Tahoe, May 1976 as well as an original pre-season promotional article.

Tracklist:
01. Introduction: Also Sprach Zarathustra - 02. C. C. Rider - 03. I Got A Woman / Amen - 04. Love Me - 05. If You Love Me Let Me Know - 06. You Gave Me A Mountain - 07. All Shook Up - 08. (Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear / Don't Be Cruel - 09. Tryin' To Get To You (with reprise) - 10. My Way - 11. Polk Salad Annie - 12. Introductions of singers, musicians, orchestra - 13. Early Morning Rain (instrumental) - 14. What'd I Say - 15. Drum Solo - (Ronnie Tutt) - 16. Bass Solo (Jerry Scheff) - 17. Piano Solo (Tony Brown) - 18. Electric Piano & Clavinet Solo (Lady Madonna - David Briggs) - 19. School Day - 20. I'll Remember You - 21. Hurt #1 - 22. Hurt #2 - 23. Hound Dog - 24. Hawaiian Wedding Song - 25. How Great Thou Art - 26. Sweet Sweet Spirit (J. D. Sumner and The Stamps) - 27. It's Now Or Never - 28. Can't Help Falling In Love - 29. Closing Vamp.

THE BAD NAUHEIM TAPES | PART 1 & 2

These days, it’s almost a miracle when something new turns up, especially when it’s from Elvis’ finest years. Two hours’ worth of homerecordings from 1959 sounds too good to be true, and yet here it is.

These remarkable recordings were made while Elvis lived in Bad Nauheim, Germany. Listening to these recordings, it’s clear that he is having a good time with his pals, but the keen listener will also note that he is mapping out his musical future.  

Gospel music was always his first love, so naturally that’s well represented here. Most notable are several stabs at ‘He Knows Just What I Need’, and it’s not unlikely that the idea to record it at some point was born here. Same with ‘Are You Lonesome Tonight’, a song that would be a million seller for him one year later.

There’s some clowning around by all involved (most notably a goofy Lamar Fike reading the news), but what stands out most from these recordings is Elvis’ commitment to his music, his level of ambition and his determination to master several of these songs. What you hear on these significant recordings is an artist who knew that he had to reinvent himself in order to sustain a successful career. These private recordings offer a fascinating insight into the artist redefining his art at a crucial point in his career, and as such, this is essential listening for the Elvis fan & scholar.

Only a small part from these tapes have been released before, but the bulk of it is unreleased – almost three hours of Elvis at home, relaxed, doing what he loved most – making music.
            
ElvisOne is proud to be able to release these recordings as a 2 + 1 CD set, with rare photos from te timeframe, background notes and detailed track info. Available now!

Swinging Into The Action

To be released soon, Swinging Into The Action (SR Records) with focus on Elvis’ April&June 1972 tour, featuring Albuquerque NM April 19th 1972 and the Milwaukee WI, June 14th, 1972. Both the shows are previously unreleased taken directly from a first generation tape.

The SR attitude is to present Elvis at the peak of his possibility and without any doubt Elvis’ first two Tours in 1972 present him at the top of his possibilities, delivering maybe shows shorter than the previous November 1971 tour, but still solid. If Rock is an attitude the man still has it. The performances are terrific, rough and sharp.

Here are presented two unreleased shows from the April and June tour. Both the show are very similar, the track list is minimized and the shows are practically identical, with some minor exception like the rare “The First Time Ever Saw Your Face “ included in the final Show of Albuquerque..

We are happy and proud of the result we hope you can enjoy too, in spite of the limitation of the audience recording, we are talking of a big Arena shows not of the intimate Las Vegas showroom. The shows are fantastic and the track listing is solid, Elvis is delivering us a sort of greatest hits. Starting from his latest single Until It’s Time For You To Go then with the Anthem An American Trilogy passing the best single of 1969, Suspicious Minds without forgetting the glorious fifties with Heartbreak Hotel and Hound Dog…. All the songs are very well performed.

This new SR special Product will be housed in a deluxe LONG DIGIPACK, containing a 6 pages of foldout booklet with focus and details on the tour including a collection of live photographs newspapers clips and memorabilia plus a high quality glossy 135 gram paper poster of 50x26 cm size and a high glossy paper bonus art card of 25x13 cm of size..

In matter to have a special collector item, the 400 copies will be presented with FOUR different sleeves VARIATION .All the copies will come hand numbered and individually sealed and Please remember!! This is a LIMITED HAND NUMBERED 400 COPIES

As tradition of the label, SR LABEL DECIDED TO PRODUCE TOGETHER THE 400 copies of STANDARD EDITION A LIMITED DELUXE EDITION of 100 copies WITH EXCLUSIVE CONTENTS.

The Perfect 1

We’d like to present to you a collection containing Elvis’ first takes, recorded throughout the 60's and 70's. We at Gladyson consider these first takes to be on par and sometimes even better than the master recordings. Elvis in the studio did some magnificent first takes, but as sessions tend to go, the songs keep evolving, and everything gets perfected, but some of the magic seems to dissapear with each passing take. We have chosen the best first takes and collected them in this 40 track housed in a beautiful 6 panel double disc digi-pack, which we hope you enjoy. We have left some dialogue in where fitting, and are pleased with the results. Instead of listening to the masters, get out of your shell, put this disc into your player, and enjoy ''The Perfect 1''.

Elvis April 14 1972 Greensboro

Victrola label is proud to present Elvis’ powerhouse concert in Greensboro Coliseum on April 14th 1972.

So what makes this new release so special? Yes, it has been released before, most recently on the Amiga label boxed set ''Elvis On Tour - Deluxe Edition''. But this release blows that set right out of the water! You will not believe the sound, which for the first time comes from the actual RCA tapes. Yes, you read that correctly. For the first time, these are actual multitrack master recordings, and not the nafta tapes that have been used this far as a source for this show. On the box set, it was even presented in mono (sloppy, that) and Madison released it earlier in narrow stereo on "Greensboro Revolution". The recording that we obtained was mixed down from the original 8- and 16-track masters fairly recently, but then, oddly enough, stored back in the vaults. We know you will be thrilled when you hear this recording, which has the signature of the best Elvis live mixes released officially thus far. The wide, dynamic stereo sound is just friggin' unbelievable and puts you right in that Greensboro audience. That may sound like hype, but just wait for the samples! Elvis at the peak of his powers, April 1972, driving the audience into a frenzy... And you are right there! Do not miss this sonic delight, which may well be your favorite Elvis live album in the years to come. That's how good this is. We are clearly thrilled to be able to release this for you, from the actual mastertapes, in a fresh, professionally mixed stunning stereo sound. As a bonus, we've added a bonus disc featuring sacred performances and additional live songs in glorious stereo, as well as the unedited ''Funny How Time Slips Away'' from the April 5th 1972 rehearsal (badly butchered up on the aforementioned box-set). These days, there aren't a lot of surprises left in the Elvis world (wasn't that "Searcher" film a real doozy?), but this is definitely one of them. Grab it while you can! We do understand some people will be sceptical about this project, but for once, this is what it is! To assure these people, we will be posting samples soon, so that they can compare & make graphics to their hearts' content. This is the real deal, folks... And one project that we're damn proud of. A killer release that deserves to be in your collection.

''Elvis April 14, 1972 Greensboro'' release is presented in a deluxe double digipak accompanied with a 16-page booklet.

We are proud to announce too, that ''Elvis April 14, 1972 Greensboro'' will be released later this year on 180grams vinyl in a beautiful gatefold sleeve, and with a large booklet filled with many rare pix.

The Victrola label is planning more releases in 2018, so stay tuned!

Update June 15, 2018

Don't mess around with me.....I'M EVIL.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Elvis legendary "Comeback Special" .
Since the performances cannot be beaten, the best thing for us to do would be to present them in the same way as they were recorded... but since that has been done over and over (and over and over) CMT is proud to present this STAR production , which is the best release containing  the 1968 recordings.....in 50 years!!

Much time and effort went into this release, some live tracks have been "spliced" from different shows, some studio tracks have been re-created and sound breathtaking!
The live tracks are blended very cool, so you get the feeling you are listening to a complete show.

Probably THE highlight is the "complete" version of Trouble/Guitar Man, cool edits make this work very well and makes the track even more "Evil" 
Some tracks have been shortened to make it a different listening experience, "That's All Right" for example is presented just like the original 1954 version, with no repeating versus and chorus.
"Let Yourself Go" has been spliced with the instrumental version and sounds very different. The "Gospel" segment has been re-created from scratch containing clever splices to make it sound just like the original version, only different ..."Blue Suede Shoes" (Stand up) has been re-edited and kicks some serious a.....
Throw in some more spliced takes , a rare rehearsal version of Blue Moon of Kentucky (spliced) and some cool live edits, turn up to volume and enjoy this excellent release

Presented in a six panel digipack, limited to 500 copies, this one will be gone soon!

Blue Moon of Kentucky - Rehearsal
Band Warming Up
Trouble/Guitar Man - Alternate Extended Master
That's All Right - Spliced version

3764 - THE FINAL RECORDINGS
Another CMT/STAR winner! 

Includes all tracks from both "Elvis Presley Boulevard" and "Moody Blue" 

He'll Have To Go has been remade into a very different sounding track, it starts off with Elvis singing "He'll Have to Ho" James throws in a lick, and then our man bursts into "Put your sweet lips...." 
"Love Coming Down" has been extended but there are no repeatable parts. 
"Danny Boy" has been spliced with the live version, and America starts and ends with short studio parts, filled with a live version, also recorded in Memphis!
Named above are only a few highlights, fans of the series know what to expect and will not be disapointed by this latest addition. Don't spend money on cheap rip off versions, be sure to support the team that does the hard work so you can enjoy them at home.

The SR attitude is to present Elvis at the peak of his possibility and without the doubt in the Elvis’ first Tour in the seventies present Elvis at the top of his possibilities, delivering maybe shorter shows respect the previous summer seasons, but still solid.

The shows are fantastic and the track listing is solid, Elvis is delivering us a sort of greatest hits. Starting from his latest single I’ve Lost You then with the more successful The Wonder Of You, passing to the two best singles of 1969, In The Ghetto and Suspicious Minds without forgetting the glorious fifties with Heartbreak Hotel and Hound Dog…. All the songs are very well performed.

This new SR special Product will be housed in a deluxe LONG DIGIPACK, containing a 6 pages of foldout booklet with focus and details on the tour including a collection of live photographs newspapers clips and memorabilia plus a high quality glossy 135 gram paper poster of 50x26 cm size and a high glossy paper bonus art card of 25x13 cm of size..

OLD TIMES THEY ARE NOT FORGOTTEN:
DOUBLE VINYL ALBUM + CD
DAE LP-01

AUGUST 30 1976 , TUSCALOOSA, ALABAMA

23 years after the first DIAMOND ANNIVERSARY EDITIONS release "old times they are not forgotten" the DAE team has joined together for some very special vinyl releases.
The first title : HERE I GO AGAIN was a complete sell out and was well recieved by vinyl freaks.
To make things not too complicated we have now chosen to release the very first title ever released on DAE “Old Times They Are Not Forgotten”. Obviously It contains the August 30 1976 show. And it's a beauty! 
We believe this new updated double album is the best outing of this show till now! And of course the show is included on cd too.
This release is very limited and is available in red or blue vinyl presented in a gatefold sleeve.

Get it while you can and add this awesome DAE product to your collection.

THE CAMDEN COLLECTION
THE ELVIS PRESLEY CAMDEN COLLECTION VOL 1+2

With these stunning new box sets we are celebrating the unique Camden compilation albums, released in the UK between 1975 and 1986.

Although a product of Pickwick International , licensed from RCA Records, these albums are lovingly referred to as Camdens , simply because of the catalogue numbers and the big capital letters "CAMDEN" on the record and cassette labels.

Despite often being dismissed by long terms fans when they were originally released, these albums were the first point of call for younger people getting into Elvis' music.
The budget prices, added to the eye-catching covers meant these were albums that found their way into many a home that had never owned an Elvis record.

So, for many, there is a fondness for these releases.
We hope you enjoy a trip down memory lane...with these Camden albums for the very first time on CD !

NOW RELEASED IN 2 BEAUTIFUL 'CLAMSHELL' BOX SETS:

- EACH BOX SET CONTAINS 6 LEGENDARY CAMDEN/PICKWICK ALBUMS

- ORIGINAL ALBUM PACKAGING HAS BEEN PAINSTAKINGLY RESTORED
( THEY ALL LOOK LIKE A MINIATURE VERSION OF THE ORIGINAL VINYL ALBUMS )

Saturday Night Fever

Ragdoll is proud to present their latest release ''Saturday Night Fever'', In march of 1975 Elvis gave 29 performances, he opened this season on March 18, 1975, and the crowd at the Las Vegas Hilton saw a rejuvenated performer, as well as a rejuvenated setlist, Elvis just got done recording his new album Elvis Today, and took some of this material with him to Las Vegas, songs like ''Green Green Grass Of Home'' ''And I Love You So'' and ''Fairytale'' would be introduced, with the latter two staying in the setlist for most of those shows, Elvis also re-introduced some songs that haven't been sung regularly for 2 years, including ''My Boy'' ''Burning Love'' and ''I'll Remember You'', the latter one having been sung only once the year before in Lake Tahoe. Here on this disc you will find for the first time, the near complete March 30th dinner show, which was previously released incomplete on ''Live From Las Vegas'' by the lf2 label, however this was a simple copy and paste job from vinyl source, and missed several songs (including a fantastic version of ‘’My Boy’’ and a serious version of ''I'll Remember You''), however Ragdoll was able to obtain a new source, which included the near complete show (the tape ran out near the end of ''Hound Dog'') which was in very good sound quality. Despite being incomplete we were able to get another tape of this show to complete this release, which was the source used for the ''The Live Years'' 3-LP set by the Astra label, back in the mid 80's, this time finally from tape source and not from a needle-drop. The sound is ambient and very good, the only song left incomplete is ''Can't Help Falling In Love''. Be sure to ask your dealer for samples. This release comes in a cardboard.

01. Also Sprach Zarathustra

The First Time Ever I Lay With You

Our first CD in 2018 is titled "The First Time Ever I Lay With You" (label E. P. Collector, catalogue number EPC 2018-15).

Now, when majority of Elvis import labels is only re-releasing old stuff in new packages, E. P. Collector label is coming with another surprise! The San Diego, April 24th, 1976 afternoon show is previously unreleased and moreover, it is completely a new show for Elvis fans – never before in circulation, in any form!

Elvis April ’76 tour was rated as very good one, with longer shows and variable set list. Unlike later that year, when Elvis ended his concerts quickly after introductions of his band, here he gave no less than 9 songs after „School Day“ orchestra solo!

Elvis’ drummer Ronnie Tutt was back in band and pianist Shane Kiester was replaced by Tony Brown.

Among the concert highlights there are „Tryin' To Get To You”, „America (The Beautiful)”, „Hurt”, „Burning Love” and „How Great Thou Art”.  One song stands out: rare, heartfelt performance of complete version of „The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face”. This song was performed only 3 known times, in 1976.

This concert is taken from a recently found first generation copy of an original audience recorded cassette tape. You may ask your supplier for samples.

This CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipak with great collection of quality images taken in San Diego, CA, April 24, 1976.

If you have enjoyed our other April ’76 tour release called „The Beat Is Back“, then you are sure to enjoy our latest release, too. 

Tracklist:

01. Also Sprach Zarathustra (2001 Theme) - 02. C. C. Rider - 03. medley: I Got A Woman / Amen - 04. Love Me - 05. If You Love Me (Let Me Know) - 06. You Gave Me A Mountain - 07. All Shook Up - 08. medley: Teddy Bear / Don't Be Cruel - 09. Tryin' To Get To You - 10. America (The Beautiful) – 11. Polk Salad Annie - 12. Band Introductions - 13. What'd I Say - 14.

Can't Help Falling In Love - 28. Closing Vamp.

Looked Into The Wings

Our second CD is titled "Looked Into The Wings" (label E. P. Collector, catalogue number EPC 2018-16).

October tour was another good one, after several problematic tours in the Summer. Elvis lost some 10-12 kilos and he was able to wear his jumpsuits from 1974 again. He looked much healthier and he was in good mood and in solid voice.

We have released Elvis’ last Kalamazoo concert from April 26, 1977 in 2017. Now we have decided to release its prequel. We had complete original tape of this show in our vaults since late 90s, but we have considered it not so good for release because Elvis was distant and wild audience reaction too prominent. Now new tape turned out, of much better sound. Unfortunately, new tape was incomplete and middle part was repaired using our old source.  As usual, you may ask your supplier for samples.

Playlist is rather typical for Autumn ’76 shows. Among the concert highlights there are „ Help Me“, „And I Love You So“, „America (The Beautiful)“, „Love Letters“, „Hurt“ and „Blue Christmas“.

This CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipak, too. Since there were no suitable photographs from the Kalamazoo performance, all images used for this project were taken in Cleveland, Ohio just two days later, on the 23rd where Elvis wore the same 'King of Spades' jumpsuit.

Tracklist:

01. Also Sprach Zarathustra (2001 Theme) - 02. C. C. Rider - 03. medley: I Got A Woman / Amen - 04. Love Me - 05. If You Love Me (Let Me Know) - 06. You Gave Me A Mountain - 07. Jailhouse Rock - 08. Help Me - 09. All Shook Up -10. medley: Teddy Bear / Don't Be Cruel - 11. And I Love You So - 12. Fever - 13. America (The Beautiful) - 14. Band Introductions - 15. Early Mornin' Rain - 16. What'd I Say - 17. Johnny B. Goode - 18. Drum Solo (Ronnie Tutt) - 19. Bass Solo (Blues - Jerry Scheff) - 20. Piano Solo (Tony Brown) - 21. Electric Piano Solo (David Briggs) - 22. Love Letters - 23. School Day - 24. Hurt (with reprise) - 25. Hound Dog - 26. Blue Christmas - 27. Can't Help Falling In Love - 28. Closing Vamp & Announcements.

Note: label E. P. Collector is planning special double CD called „Black Tornado“ with newly found original tapes of Elvis’ concerts in Cleveland, OH, November 6, 1971 (afternoon and evening), which were never before available in good sound! So stay tuned!

I WALK THE LINE

It’s August 1970, the recordings for the MGM movie “That’s the way it is” are finished and 
Elvis still has more than 3 weeks to go at the Las Vegas International Hotel before 
starting another short (but busy) 1 week tour.  

Elvis is:
VERY INSPIRED! 
IN A GOOD MOOD! 
FUNNY! 
And in a FANTASTIC! physical condition! 

All of which resulted in the magnificent August & September performances. 
Unfortunately the only soundboard/multitrack material that has seen the light of day 
are the “That’s The Way It Is” performances. 

Lucky enough these audience recordings survived! 

The August 14 1970 show has always been considered a very remarkable show, especially as 
Elvis is singing some unusual songs, like the 2 Johnny Cash songs: I WALK THE LINE / FOLSOM PRISON BLUES. 
The August 14 show had some volume issues as appeared on the original tape, probably because of hiding the recorder. 
This has been corrected where possible. All performances have been re-edited and remastered and speed corrected where necessary. 

Also featured is the original August 10, STAGE REHEARSAL remastered from scratch using an original transfer of the reel. Without any edited or added intro or outros, just as recorded! A wonderful improvement to the original release from the 90's!

These shows are too good to be missed in any collection!

WE BRING YOU BACK TO 1970!

Spliced Takes Easter Eggs & Kissin' Cousins

ELVIS - EASTER EGGS - SPLICED TAKE DELUXE DIGIPACK EDITION

Finally a "new" Spliced take album is out now, and it was worth the wait.
This one includes all tracks from the 1966 recording sessions, many gospel songs were recorded, but also some  excellent
other tracks.

CMT managed to produce a full new album with high standard spliced takes only the STAR team can deliver.
To name just one highlight it has to be the new approach the team did on "Tomorrow is A Long Time" it was re-created from scratch, gives a totally new feel to the song since the "chorus" was used only once and all "verses" were put after one and other. Also a longer intro and outro makes this an outstanding new track!

Other surprises like "Fools Fall in Love" with TWO  saxophone solos and an alternate piano intro for "Where No One Stands Alone" confirms:  This is a MUST have!
The series continues!

Again the STAR team has done all the edits on this album, and they did an excellent job again , with lots of excellent edits, and surprises. Unlike other “import” labels, they truly were able to produce an album using many incomplete takes , to create beautiful new tracks. 

Run On - Spliced take 3,1,1,2
How Great  Thou Art - Spliced take 1,2,4
Stand By Me - Spliced take 9,10,2
Where No One Stands Alone - Spliced take 1/Wp take 1

Kissin Cousins - Spliced Take Special - CARDSLEEVE EDITION

An incredible new album, featuring extended versions, alternate takes including new instrumental tracks and some pretty cool edits!

Don't think you already heard these! ALL tracks are brandnew edits and sound very rare, The title track for example starts of with an alternate opening and includes the extra verses.

"Gold in the Mountains" has been extended and includes rare alternate musical segments. For "Tender Feeling"  they used the alternate take 1 (vocal) and combined it with an alternate musical track, the result is stunning and sound quality is much better then the master version! "Echoes of Love" includes an alternate Saxophone solo makes you feel as if it is a brandnew take! The "drums" on "Catchin On Fast" are taken from an alternate musical track and put in just at the right spot to make it sound pretty cool and different!

 Another highlight must be "Kissin Cousins #1" ... for this song Elvis recorded TWO different vocal styles... one being Josh , and one being Jody (Hillbilly) both tracks were combined and we got the first "duet" ever of Elvis and... .Elvis.... Here they have "reversed" the vocals, and a complete NEW release is born, where the master has Josh... this track has Jody singing, gives the same "feel" but sounds VERY different! "Smokey Mountain Boy" and "Barefoot Ballad" have alternate extended intro and outros....We could go on, but one thing is for sure, this is another CMT winner!

Did we say ALL tracks are spliced, so you get an ALL new album!

Update February 27, 2018

3 New Single CD Releases From Straight Arrow Soon

Philadelphia Freedom

Our first release in 2018 is titled “Philadelphia Freedom”.  It's the summer of 1976, and America is celebrating its bicentennial. What could be more patriotic than seeing America’s greatest entertainer in the city where the countries' Declaration of Independence was formed and signed? Straight Arrow team has been looking for a recording of this particular concert for a long time… and finally succeeded.

Compared with July and August 1976 concerts, performances in June were of a much better standard and the Philadelphia concert is no exception. Elvis did a fine show that night. 

The Philadelphia, June 28th, 1976 show is previously unreleased. Until now, this show was not available in acceptable sound. The only existing tape was in horrible quality. Our release has been taken directly from a previously unreleased original audience-recorded cassette. This concert was recorded by an Elvis fan from Pennsylvania.

This release is presented in a de-luxe 6-panel digipak with collection of photos taken in  Philadelphia, PA, June 28th, 1976 and with great liner notes written by the fan who taped the show!

Tracklist:
Part of pre-program:

01. Gonna Fly Now (theme from Rocky - by Joe Guercio & The Hot Hilton Horns) - 02. Black Sunday (by Sweet Inspirations) - 03. If You Leave Me Now (by Sweet Inspirations).
 
The Elvis Presley show:

04. Introduction: Also Sprach Zarathustra - 05. C. C. Rider - 06. I Got A Woman / Amen - 07. Love Me - 08. If You Love Me (Let Me Know) - 09. You Gave Me A Mountain - 10. All Shook Up - 11. (Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear / Don't Be Cruel - 12. And I Love You So - 13. Jailhouse Rock - 14. Fever - 15. America The Beautiful - 16. Introductions of singers, musicians, orchestra - 17. Early Mornin' Rain - 18. What'd I Say - 19. Johnny B. Goode - 20. Drum Solo (Ronnie Tutt, incomplete) - 21. Bass Solo (Blues - Jerry Scheff) - 22. Piano Solo (Tony Brown)  - 23. Electric Piano & Clavinet Solo (David Briggs) - 24. Love Letters - 25. School Day - 26. Hurt #1 - 27. Hurt #2 - 28. Hound Dog - 29. Funny How Time Slips Away (with reprise) - 30. Can't Help Falling In Love - 31. Closing Vamp / Announcements.

(The pre-program was taped in Philadelphia, PA, May 28th, 1977 by the same guy who recorded the 1976 show. Straight Arrow planned  to release the May 28th, 1977 show too, but another label released it recently from another tape source.)


Rippin' It In Cincinnatti

Our second release is titled „Rippin’ It In Cincinnati“. It was the1st tour of 1976 and some of Elvis’ key musicians were replaced. Unexpectedly, the result was a surprisingly fresh sound, with keyboards and drums prominent. During this rather short tour, Elvis performed 8 solid and entertaining shows in 4 cities.

The Cincinnati, March 21st, 1976, 2:30pm show is previously unreleased. Once again, this show was not available in acceptable sound thus far. The only existing tape in circulation was in subpar quality. This was the show where Elvis ripped the seat of his blue Bicentennial suit during “Polk Salad Annie”, and finished the show dressed in the Rainfall suit. It is one of the very few shows where Elvis left the stage for awhile (another example is Baltimore, May 29, 1977, released on our 2CD “Breakdown In Baltimore”).

Our release has been taken directly from a first generation copy of a previously unreleased original audience-recorded cassette. This concert was recorded by Elvis super fan John Herman, who also taped the legendary Pittsburgh 1976 New Years Eve show, widely released by bootleggers and by the official FTD label.

As usual, this release is presented in a de-luxe 6-panel digipak with collection of photos taken in Cincinnati and local press reviews. A couple of unpublished John Herman snapshots were added, too.

Tracklist:

01. Introduction: Also Sprach Zarathustra - 02. C. C. Rider - 03. I Got A Woman / Amen  - 04. Love Me - 05. Let Me Be There - 06. You Gave Me A Mountain - 07. Steamroller Blues - 08. All Shook Up - 09. (Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear / Don't Be Cruel - 10. Love Me Tender - 11. Polk Salad Annie / Elvis leaves the stage to change the jumpsuit - 12. Introductions of singers, musicians, orchestra (by J. D. Sumner) - 13. What'd I Say (James Burton, instrumental) - 14. Drum Solo (Larry Londin) - 15. Bass Solo (Jerry Scheff) / Elvis returns - 16. Piano Solo (Shane Keister) - 17. Electric Piano & Clavinet Solo (David Briggs) - 18. School Day - 19. And I Love You So - 20. Hurt (with reprise) - 21. Burning Love - 22. America The Beautiful - 23. Funny How Time Slips Away - 24. Heartbreak Hotel - 25. Hound Dog - 26. Can't Help Falling In Love - 27. Closing Vamp / Announcements.


He's The One In '71

Our 3rd CD in this batch, and some might say, the best. Straight Arrow is very pleased to bring you  this rare concert recording from Elvis’ Summer 1971 festival. It is always a delight to find new, fresh tapes from this year, and from this particular season -- especially when it's in very good sound quality. This is an excellent recording of the August 28th dinner show.

Elvis' previous engagement there had shown signs of his high performing standard slipping, but here he sounds like he's back on track again. Late August shows are tight, no-nonsense affairs with Presley in good voice and in strong form. He performs with focus and professionalism, and he sings a fantastic variety of music.

The Las Vegas, August 28th, 1971, Dinner show is previously unreleased. The only existing tape/CDR in circulation is of very poor quality. Our release has been taken directly from a recently obtained first generation copy of an original audience-recorded cassette. This concert was recorded by an Elvis fan from France, Marie Chantal Rivière, who also taped other August 1971 Las Vegas shows. We have released Marie Chantal Rivière's recordings of the August 27th & 29th dinner and midnight concerts on the 2CD “Solid As Rock” (SA/SP 2015-37-02) and the CD “Last Stint At The International” (SA/SP 2016-38-02). If you like those releases, you cannot go wrong with “He’s The One In ‘71”!

This release is presented in a de-luxe 6-panel digipak with collection of photos taken in August 1971 and press reviews.

Tracklist:

01. Orchestra Intro - 02. Introduction: Also Sprach Zarathustra - 03. That’s All Right - 04. I Got A Woman - 05. Proud Mary - 06. Sweet Caroline - 07. Polk Salad Annie - 08. Instrumental intermezzo / Elvis talks - 09. Johnny B. Goode - 10. It’s Impossible - 11. Love Me - 12. Blue Suede Shoes / Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On / Blue Suede Shoes - 13. Heartbreak Hotel - 14. Hound Dog - 15. (Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear / Don’t Be Cruel - 16. Suspicious Minds - 17. Introductions of singers, musicians, orchestra - 18. I’m Leavin’ - 19. Introduction of Ed Parker - 20. Bridge Over Troubled Water - 21. Can’t Help Falling In Love - 22. Closing Vamp / Announcements.

Update February 4, 2017

BEHIND CLOSED DOORS
HEPCAT SP-001

After the success of "The alternate moody blue" & "the alternate today" Hepcat records releases "BEHIND CLOSED DOORS" in it's newly launched special products series.

Behind Closed Doors has always been a fan favorite, the beautiful lp box set issued by the AUDIFÖN label in 1979 was a groundbreaking release. Most material was unreleased and the quality was pretty good.

HEPCAT started this project after locating some of the original acetates & a (partly usable) tape used to create the original lp masters.  After a short investigation we realized this set deserved a proper re-release. Especially with the acetates & tape in hand! Obviously during the years a lot of material was issued officially in the right quality but also some of the tracks are not yet available on other releases or in the form as presented on the original boxset.  (Besides a terrible sounding cd release in the 90's). 

For example STEPPIN' OUT OF LINE take 19 & 8 which were only released as a spliced version. On this set you will find the proper versions, in an awesome quality. The outtakes of the TAG for DRUMS OF THE ISLANDS are another example of beautiful quality on this set. Same counts for WILD IN THE COUNTRY / BEACH BOY BLUES take 1 & 3 and so on. This set offers too much to mention and will sure bring back some memories.

Also for the 70's lovers there is enough to enjoy on this set, for example the SUSPICIOUS MINDS spliced live version and POLK SALAD ANNIE from February 16, 1970 are presented here in a quality as never before. Also the extended version of DON'T THINK TWICE, IT'S ALL RIGHT is in a quality you will certainly enjoy. For IT'S YOUR BABY YOU ROCK IT it was mostly thought that the undubbed master on the original lp box was skipping, actually it was a bad edited version as it appeared on the tape, a better source was not available at the time and still is not available. We decided to put the edited version the way it was presented on the tape & original lp box as it is still way better then the second acetate source, which is also presented as a bonus track. Die hard vinyl spinners might even be able to sing along with the edited version.

All tracks are digitally remastered and speed corrected where necesarry. 

Now for the first time this legendary LP boxset is re-released in this beautiful 10 inch sized boxset. Containing 2 CD's , a 10 INCH record and a bonus 45 RPM record containing GENTLE ON MY MIND (vocal repaired undubbed master) & TOMORROW NEVER COMES (take 11).

Only available in red vinyl.

HERE I GO AGAIN : DOUBLE VINYL ALBUM + CD
DAE LP-05

23 years after the first DIAMOND ANNIVERSARY EDITIONS release "old times they are not forgotten" the DAE team has joined together for some very special releases.

But first a little bit of Elvis history:
All recordings on the DAE label were never released before in any form. Due to the many copies ( read: "counterfeits" of the originals) that were made from the original DAE releases it did not make much sense to do another run of the original releases at the time. This is maybe also a good opportunity to state that DAE never did a reissue of any kind. At the time there was the original run and a reprint was never issued. Most copies that appear from time to time on the market are therefore not the original DAE issues and have nothing to do with the original label. With as a lowpoint the humiliating release of "the very best of diamond anniversary". Till now it is the first time the DAE team has joined forces again for this very special release.

Back in the old days of the 90's vinyl was out of fashion and compact discs were the new medium. Therefore the request for cd's was so much higher and after locating the shows they were only released on cd. Now with the revival of vinyl, DAE decided to give the shows a well deserved re-release on vinyl.

The first title chosen is actually the 5th cd release : HERE I GO AGAIN. Containing the August 24 1969 midnight show. Back in the days the tape was wrongly dated and it was released as being the August 23 dinner show.

This new release of HERE I GO AGAIN is completely updated and remastered and for the biggest part sourced from multitrack sources plus the original tape used for the cd release.  

We realize our friends from Gravel Road Music have also reissued the show with a little bit of help from the original DAE tapes but they left out some tracks of the original show, which were replaced by other versions. And the so called "raw material" did not add much to the package as we believe even the original cd release is sounding way better.

We believe this new updated double album is the best outing of this show till now! And of course the show is included on cd too.

This release is very limited and is available in red or blue vinyl presented in a gatefold sleeve.

Get it while you can and add this awesome DAE product to your collection.

Spliced Takes - GI Blues

Tonight's So Right For ..Elvis!
Hop, Two, Three, Four.... a new release out soon!
Another winner in the great "Spliced take" series is finished now!

There have been lots and lots of "G.I. Blues" releases, but this one sounds completely different, with many tracks NEVER heard before!
A lot of work has been put into this release and it was worth it, presented in high quality cardsleeve and disc (both factory pressed)
Including 12 NEW "spliced" tracks from the 1960 recordings
This first 2018 CMT release will blow you away, with lots of surprises, including rare studio material and new edits. The title track for example has been recreated out of five (!) takes and sounds exciting and fresh, "Wooden Heart" has a new opening, and "Frankfort Special" has some funny studio snippets at the end. "Big Boots" was build up out of three versions (slow, medium and fast) and even "Blue Suede Shoes" sound different than before, although there was only one take to work with..

ELVIS ON TOUR - 45th ANNIVERSARY DELUXE EDITION 

 

Amiga International releases a long awaited LIMITED-EDITION boxset featuring 9-CD’s, all remastered, of all known recordings made for the Golden Globe Award-winning concert documentary ELVIS ON TOUR. This will include the premiere of the complete rehearsal recorded in Buffalo, NY on April 5, 1972, with three previously unreleased performances.

The 13-inch boxset also includes a huge 128-page hardcover book containing detailed essays of the entire April 1972 tour with RARE AND UNPUBLISHED photographs and related memorabilia.

When considering the lack of attention paid to this concert documentary, it seems a shame that so few official releases have emerged. It is for this reason that AMIGA International presents this deluxe package to honor the excellent recordings made for the much neglected "Elvis On Tour" film.

The audio / visual experience is undeniably the quintessential overview of the making and scrutiny of this extraordinary glimpse of Elvis as master of his art.

This highly anticipated boxset will be released on December 28th 2017

Still A Legend

The MxF label just released the "Still A legend".
This new DOUBLE set will be housed in a deluxe LONG DIGIPACK (25X13CM) , containing 6 pages of booklet!!!!! with focus and details on the TWO shows including a collection of live photographs newspapers clip and memorabilia plus a high-quality glossy 135-gram paper poster of 50x30 cm size. + bonus art card (25X13 CM) in high glossy paper (two different) and a special photo ( three different) Both the two art cards and the three photos will be randomly included in the four variation set .
There are 4 variations and each are a limited to only 100 copies.
All the copies will come hand numbered and individually sealed.

The 2 CD set features both the unreleased shows performed from Elvis in Bloomington IN University of Indiana May 27, 1976, and in Providence RI Civic Center June 26, 1976, ES.

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

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

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

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

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

THE KING STRIKES BACK!

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

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

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

3 new CD releases from Straight Arrow out soon!

Stormy Weather Ahead

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

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

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

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

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

Breakdown In Baltimore
40 Years After Vol. 3

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

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

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

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

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

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

Tracklist:
CD1
01. Introduction: Also Sprach Zarathustra - 02. C. C. Rider - 03. I Got A Woman / Amen - 04. That’s All Right - 05. Are You Lonesome Tonight - 06. Blue Christmas - 07. Heartbreak Hotel - 08.

Rockin' And Lovin' In Las Vegas

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

The August 17th Dinner show was another great performance by Elvis. Elvis performs a solid and very entertaining shows. His vocals are outstanding. The liner notes are taken from recent Rex Martin August 1972 personal notes.

Still A Legend

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

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

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

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

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

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

Standing In The Rain

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

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

02. I Got A Woman / Amen

04. Steamroller Blues

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Las Vegas, August 29th, 1974 Dinner show is previously unreleased except for 7 songs released from a soundboard source by the FTD label („It’s Midnight“ CD). This concert is taken from an early generation copy of an original audience recorded cassette tape. As usual, you may ask your supplier for samples.
This CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipak with a great collection of quality images taken in August 1974.
As with all our releases, this CD is a labour of love and hope you enjoy it.

Spliced takes: "Still in Memphis"

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

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

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

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

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

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

Spliced Takes - Nashville Revisited

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

Sun 78 RPM

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

Hot Summer in 1973

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

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

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

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

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

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

Two New Touchdown releases

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

ON FIRE IN FLORIDA

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

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

Packing the Arena Out Now

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

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

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

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

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

Hilton Showroom vol. 7

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

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

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

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

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

THAT’S ALL RIGHT: Spliced from 2 outtakes, with added echo to re-create the master version.
SHAKE RATTLE AND ROLL: Includes ALL verses done by our man, 3 different solos, piano, guitar and drums will blow you away!
LET ME; The “master” of this song was also a splice created from take 3 and 4… here they used the same takes, only the opposite parts, so this is the first COMPLETE new outtake of this movie song.
MONEY HONEY: Only a shore part of take 10 was found, used here to make a nice new track, spliced with the master takes.
BABY, I DON’T CARE: Great version, with spliced takes, and new mix to make it and outstanding new outtake.
BLUEBERRY HILL: FIVE takes used here to make a very fresh new version.
We could go on, but the best thing to do is PRE-ORDER now, and enjoy all of the 30 tracks by yourself!

A Brand New Cadillac, Honey!

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

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

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

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

Packing the Arena

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

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

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

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

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

Wild In Wichita!

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

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

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

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

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

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

Tracklist:

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

Spliced takes - Hollywood Revisited

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

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

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

Sahara Tahoe

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

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

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

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

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

*THE ESSENTIAL UNDUBBED MASTERS 1969-1976*

This brand new deluxe 8 cd set is out now.

Recording sessions can be time-consuming.
The process of recording a song or album is often very interesting.
It’s like playing live in the studio, with the difference that if one goofed, they had to do it all over. 
Small corrections could be made but especially erasing something from the tape was a problem.

Later on with the introduction of multitrack recording
equipment it became much easier to alter the recordings. 
Channels could be erased or added and levels could be adjusted for each separate channel.

Often a track that ends up on an lp or 45 contains overdubs
that were made at a later stage and added to the master take.
Also most of The Elvis masters contain such overdubs.
This set contains the master takes as they were made in the studio, without those overdubs.

It’s as close as it gets to the pure sound of Elvis.

Sit back and enjoy!

Let Me.. Sing Again - delayed

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A Vegas Fling With The King

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

ELVIS PRESLEY – SPLICED TAKES SNOWBIRD

Perfect for the holidays, and another winner here! The best seasonal songs and gospels are included here.
Every year there are some "new" Elvis Christmas Albums.... they all have the same tracks over and over....
how nice to have someting really new now!

One of THE hightlights must be the alternate version of "Winter Wonderland" it has a totally new approach, and 
alternate ending which sound amazing! Another cool edit is the "single" version of "Merry Christmas Baby" without
the overdubbs! "The First Noel" sounds as if it is a RPO version, the original master was edited with the 2008 overdubbed 
version, and makes it more powerful then ever!
As a bonus a "duet" version of "Mama Liked The Roses" is included, Elvis recorded two vocal overdubbs, these are 
combined here to get a very unusual version.

Our new CD is titled "Heart 'n' Soul And Some Mighty Fine Rock 'n' Roll“ (label E. P. Collector, catalogue number EPC 2016-08)
Recorded live from the audience in Las Vegas, NV, August 8th, 1972 M/S, CD is subtitled "From Japan With Love Vol. 1“ because it was recorded by a member of a Japanese fan club.

It was taken from a recently found first generation copy of an original audience recorded master cassette tape and digitally restored for your listening pleasure.
This concert is excellent!! Actually all shows from 1972 Summer Festival are. Highlights are "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'", "What Now My Love“, ''Little Sister / Get Back“ and early, humble version of "My Way“.
This CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipak accompanied with 8-page booklet, filled with memories written by a Japanese fan who taped the show and met Elvis backstage, and a collection of on- and off-stage images taken in August 1972.
If you enjoyed some of our other releases such as "Elvis Reaches Austin City Limits" or "The Beat Is Back" among others then your sure to enjoy our latest release.
As with all our releases this CD is a labour of love and hope you enjoy. We are planning a few more interesting CDs taken from those "Japanese“ tapes. So stay tuned!

Sunset In Vegas & A Night In Saginaw

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

See See Rider - I Got A Woman/Amen - Elvis Welcomes The Audience - Love Me - If You Love Me (Let Me Know) - It’s Midnight - Big Boss Man - Fever - Love Me Tender - All Shook Up - The Wonder Of You - I’m Leavin’ - Softly As I Leave You - Hound Dog* - You Gave Me A Mountain - Polk Salad Annie - Band Introductions - If You Talk In Your Sleep - Why Me Lord - Teddy Bear/Don’t Be Cruel* - Happy Birthday - Hawaiian Wedding Song - Let Me Be There - Elvis About His Rings - Can’t Help Falling In Love
* a different source from the same concert had to be used to complete the show.
total runtime: 68.15 min

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

MEMPHIS RECORDING SERVICE: THE COMPLETE WORKS 1953 – 1955

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

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

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

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

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

Too Late For Goodbyes

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

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

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

Spliced takes “Nashville”

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

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

ROAD TO NOWHERE

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

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