FTD have released 'From Hawaii To Las Vegas'. The CD is in the 5" digi pack series. The rehearsal was recorded from the soundboard at Elvis' January 25, 1973 Las Vegas dress rehearsal for his January/February season at The Las Vegas Hilton. The rough audio is more than compensated by the fascinating insight into how Elvis worked in order to create his shows. With little talk and a lot of music we are invited to a first row presentation of what he had in mind and yet he decided to change the repertoire the very next day. Among the many songs is 'Separate Ways', rehearsed with and without the orchestra, a song that Elvis chose to never perform in public. So an interesting release, one the likes of we have not had before.

FTD will also release G.I. Blues FTD 2 CD Special Edition Classic Album [Vol. 1], in the classic album series this month. It is now time for the first volume of 'G.I. Blues' material. As always in a 7" inch digi pack format with booklet. However, this time without the In-and-Outtakes section, which will be featured in Volume 2, in order to summarize all the G.I. BLUES recordings. A lot of effort (and money) has gone into making these the best sounding 'G.I. Blues' recordings ever. So this will be a very special and the ultimate release!!!

And That's The Way It Is : 2 Disc 180 gram Vinyl. [From Memphis To Hollywood has been delayed.]
