'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.

Elvis: 'Spliced Takes '68 Comeback Special' (I'm Evil) CD

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 verses 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!

The Elvis Presley Camden Collection Volume 1 and 2 CD Box Sets

The Elvis Presley Camden Collection Vol 1 and 2 are released as two separate 6 CD box sets. With these stunning new 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!

How Tom Petty Became the Key to HBO's Elvis Presley Documentary

'What Tom did, perhaps more than anybody, was tell the story that we were trying to tell', said Landau, the longtime manager of Bruce Springsteen, who is also interviewed in 'The Searcher'. 'Tom started talking about the later part of Elvis' career, which is typically dealt with dismissively. He said, 'Yeah, but when you put all the craziness aside, there is still this incredible singer, surrounded by this incredible band'.

Interview with Thom Zimny director of 'Elvis Presley: The Searcher'

Thom Zimny: I think for me, the desire to do a film about Elvis came about when I realized there was a generation that was missing out on the beauty of the man and his music. The message got lost in portraying Elvis as a cartoon figure. I wanted to get to a closer place and examine the artist. We looked at what he accomplished and kept away from the backstory that has been the focus of other films which looked at the character defects and the losses in his life. I felt the music needed to be revisited and our generation would not see him as a caricature, but as a person who was deeply connected to the music and whose life has not been clearly explained in books and films.

Elvis Presley: The Searcher, Parts One and Two | Film Review

Can it really be true that an Elvis Presley documentary as probing and thoughtful as Thom Zimny's Elvis Presley: The Searcher does not already exist? After decades of home video performance-film releases and docs of varying quality, this two-part, three and a half-hour film feels like a landmark, something that should be welcomed as warmly as the two Elvis books published in the 1990s by Peter Guralnick, Last Train to Memphis and Careless Love. Chipping away calcified layers of myth and caricature to address the psychology behind Presley's career, its seriousness and sensitivity is no surprise to those who've followed the series of documentaries Zimny has been making about Bruce Springsteen. Sure to fare well when it bows April 14 on HBO, it made for a spellbinding big-screen experience at the music-rooted SXSW Film Festival.
