Unheard Elvis Presley 'Way Down in the Jungle Room' sessions coming in August

In early May, we reported some interesting Elvis Presley happenings afoot at the Phillips Recording Service. Although details were vague, officials from Sony/Legacy - the custodians of the Presley catalog - and longtime Elvis TCB band members were on hand at Phillips to work on tracks for an upcoming project. Though unconfirmed officially, the work was reportedly for a 40th anniversary package marking the King's 1976 home recording sessions at Graceland's Jungle Room. 'We mixed 18 tracks from the Jungle Room sessions, and the really cool thing is James BurtonNorbert PutnamDavid BriggsRonnie Tutt - all those guys who played with Elvis came to town and hung out while I mixed', says Ross-Spang. 'It's pretty interesting mixing with James Burton standing over your shoulder'. Ross-Spang's work offers a sparer-sounding version of the Jungle Room material. 'Those songs were originally done on 16-track at the house, but afterward, (Elvis producer) Felton Jarvis took the tracks back to Nashville and added strings and horns and overdubs. Which was cool, but it's really great just to have the original kind of swamp-y tracks, real bare bones. I think that's where some of the material really shines'. Click to listen

'Elvis Presley : The Album Collection': How the 60-Disc Box Set Was Assembled

March 23 marked the 60th anniversary of the self-titled debut RCA album from Elvis Presley. To commemorate that occasion, Legacy Recordings released the most comprehensive Presley collection yet. Titled Elvis Presley - The Album Collection, the 60-disc set spans the entire run of his 21 years with the label. Sony Legacy senior vice president, A&R John Jackson talked to Billboard concerning the thought process of assembling the set. 'The way we decided to approach this package -- because we have done similar things for other artists, such as Johnny Cash and Ronnie Milsap -- was to recreate the original albums. Now, the definition of what an original album is on Elvis becomes tricky because there's been so many collections and compilations of things that were released during his lifetime, and of course, a gazillion since then. What we decided to do was hone it down to what would be considered a new album with some new material on it that was released during his lifetime -- the first place that a song appeared on a long playing record while he was alive', Jackson said ...

The Flip Side : Elvis Presley: The RCA Album Collection 60 CD Box Set

'The Album Collection' is now in stock and we have begun the rather large job of packing and sending out orders. (Should be completed by Friday). This is a delightful work from Sony, and to give you a different take on the set, and what very much caught our eye was the original back cover art that we do not get even with the FTD Classic album releases. A really nice, original touch. The original album packaging has been painstakingly restored including gatefold/die cut sleeves, original RCA Victor inserts, stickers and more. And the CD labels replicate original side 1 labels. This should be a center-piece in every home be it in playing the albums, or simply making a statement with its very presence!!!!
