Elvis Presley Vinyl LP Record Release News
Read all the latest news of Elvis Presley Vinyl LP releases.
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 Burton
, Norbert Putnam
, David Briggs
, Ronnie 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'.
RCA Records and Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, will release 'Way Down In The Jungle Room'
, a definitive new 2 LP record collection of Elvis Presley's last studio recordings, on Friday, August 5. The recorded in Graceland's Legendary Jungle Room includes Studio Masters, Rare Alternate Takes and 16-page Booklet.
With original recordings executive-produced by Elvis Presley with producer Felton Jarvis
(who'd helmed most of Elvis' records from 1966-1977), 'Way Down In The Jungle Room' brings together, for the first time in one collection, master recordings and rare outtakes laid down during two mythic sessions (February 2-8, 1976 and October 28-30, 1976) in Graceland's den -- known as the Jungle Room -- which was converted into a professional caliber recording studio for the purpose of capturing these indelible performances. The outtakes have been newly mixed by Grammy Award-winning engineer Matt Ross-Spang at Sam Phillips
Recording in Memphis, Tennessee.

When it is said of Elvis' return to the stage in Las Vegas in 1969 was his 'first live performance in 8 years', this concert is the one referenced - and as a 'last' concert for so long - fittingly it was a powerhouse performance, exciting for what it was, but disappointing in that the 1960s were not full of, and known for such performances instead of just movies.
