Promo Enhanced CD : 'The 50 Greatest Hits' CD & 'Elvis That's The Way It Is' DVD

TITLE: Four Track Enhanced CD Taken from 'The 50 Greatest Hits' CD & 'Elvis That's The Way It Is' (Special Edition) DVD. BACKGROUND: Upon release this promo sampler was described as 'the biggest ever Elvis promotion in British history'. This was in part because it was backed by 'a massive Television advertising campaign' which took place over the weekend of May 11/13th 2001. At the time there was significant support for BMG who 'supported and licensed this deal [and] are finally being allow...ed to promote Elvis with the enthusiasm, commitment and dedication that he deserves'. Sadly relatively few of these CDs have survived.

Sony Legacy Release of 'Elvis Recorded Live On Stage In Memphis' to Include Richmond Concert

One of my favorite CD releases on the Follow That Dream collectors label for Elvis Presley fans is 2011's Forty-Eight Hours To Memphis, which captures a March 18, 1974, concert that Elvis performed at the Richmond Coliseum in Virginia. The confusing album title reflects that Elvis closed out his tour two days after the Richmond concert with a show in Memphis at the Mid-South Coliseum, portions of which became the 1974 album Elvis Recorded Live On Stage In Memphis. Elvis earned his third and final Grammy Award for his stellar performance of 'How Great Thou Art' in Memphis on the original 1974 album. The link between the two shows continues, for Sony announced last week that it will reissue the Richmond concert on the second disc of a Legacy Edition of Elvis Recorded Live On Stage In Memphis to be released on March 18.

Sweet Home Alabama 2 CD : Two Concerts : Mobile, June 2, 1975 A/S & E/S

The new TNT Record import label will soon release their second CD 'Sweet Home Alabama' containing the soundboard recordings from the June 2, 1975 afternoon and evening shows. After their first title 'Goin' Back To Houston' quickly selling-out of again with a little help from our friends at 'Audionics' - probably the premium and still active label when it comes to rare recordings in best possible sound - we decided once more to pick two shows from 'Tour Number 14' (May 30 – June 10, 1975).

At Dinner In Vegas and Back On Track In Vegas CDs from Touchdown Productions

Touchdown Productions will release two new audience recorded releases, 'At Dinner In Vegas' and 'Back On Track In Vegas'. Touchdown Productions proudly presents two new audience recorded releases. One of it, the dinner Show from September 3, 1972 is another totally new show that didn't even circulate on CDR or in any other form.

The sound quality is good for this kind of recordings. The CD comes with a beautiful designed 16-pages booklet.

1969 3 CD Box Set from Gravel Road Music : Release Date January 3rd

Gravel Road Music's 3CD Memphis 1969 box will be released January 3rd. This release is intended to be a flawless release with the best sounding Elvis of 1969. We started by going back to the basic recordings of the American sound studio; the edited repaired master tracks without the dubbing done later in Nashville. The combination package 'Elvis In Person & Back in Memphis' was the basic concept, but we wanted more. During the first days of the comeback in Las Vegas in 1969, special RCA presentation box sets were given away. These box sets are very rare and expensive to get hold of. This was the perfect 1969 package idea for this release. Included are: The reproduction slipcase of the famous 1969 presentation box set ...

Elvis At Stax Single Disc Version has debuted at No. 43 on the Australian ARIA Album chart

The Elvis At Stax Single Disc Version has debuted at No. 43 on the Australian ARIA Album chart. However it is definitely the Elvis At Stax Deluxe 2 CD Box Set Version that has been the hit with serious Elvis fans and if you have yet to order this set the one we recommend to you. Presented / packaged identically to the format used for the excellent [and now effectively sold out, a few sets remain, Prince From Another Planet] - that nestles down-home Memphis R&B and all-points in between - Elvis' last major 1970s recording sessions at the STAX studios produced greatness and sometime mediocrity in a vastness of styles: copious R&B wah-wah inflected workouts mingle with gospel, country, and aching ballads, but the sessions never strayed too far from the Presley blueprint - breakneck rockabilly amped up to eleven and beyond on a blistering cover of Chuck Berry's classic - 'Promised Land' (Master - CD-3) - but if not satisfying enough, gorge on two more thrilling takes (4 and 5) – stamped - utmost air-guitar - guaranteed! (CD-1 R&B/Country-The Outtakes) ...

The Creeping Crud Express, June 6 & 7, 1975 Double CD Set

Right after the release of the very controversial Houston, August 28th, 1976 show ('Houston We Have A Problem…'), Audionics is back with The Creeping Crud Express, another remarkable release with more previously unreleased soundboard material. This time, Audionics presents Elvis in solid form during his memorable May/June '75 tour. Presented in a deluxe double digipak with rare photos (some are published in color for the first time here) and relevant liner notes, this is another winner that every die-hard fan must own.

Review : Elvis : Hot August Night : August 25, 1969 : Midnight Show

Elvis was in fine form on this 'Hot August Night' of the 25th of August 1969, a performance perhaps never to be beaten. For those that only read the summery of reviews, I can be quite clear, this concert is without doubt the best live recording released to-date of Elvis Presley in 1969, and is one of the best concerts Elvis Presley ever performed - both in sound quality and performance! Why? I could say, listen to it and you will agree, but I offer you an interesting fact, it was from this concert that RCA chose to use seven [7] of the tracks to make up the original 12 track 'Elvis In Person' album in 1969. This is 58% of the albums tracks. And this is from the good number of concerts recorded of which several have been released on CD by FTD.
