Vinyl LP Record Sony Legacy will release 'As Recorded At Madison Square Garden' 180 Gram 2 LP Vinyl Set. This vinyl release features the original 1972 album cover art and the original June 10, 1972 evening concert over 2 LPs for the first time. This release contains the original mixes NOT the new remixes that are being released exclusively on the Prince From Another Planet 2 CD / DVD Deluxe Edition release.

Details of the CD Release

Sony Music will release 'Prince From Another Planet', a Madison Square Garden 40th Anniversary 2 CD / DVD Deluxe Set in 8" x 8" packaging. The two remastered CDs are of the June 10th afternoon and evening shows, both remixed by Michael Brauer [* See below] and a 80 minute DVD with never-before-seen footage of Elvis' performance at the Saturday afternoon show, captured on hand-held camera by a fan, and now acquired by Legacy from that fan decades later for this package. Along with the concert film on the DVD is another video document, the press conference that took place on Friday afternoon before the big weekend.

View Elvis Presley Video Ernst Jorgensen's and Roger Semon's / Sony's Presentation during Elvis Week 2012. Topics discussed are new, old, and possible future discoveries, including the recently found I Forgot To Remember To Forget from a Louisiana Hayride performance in 1955. And specifically an in-depth discussion on the exciting 'Prince From Another Planet' Madison Square Garden CD/DVD Box Set to be released at the end of October.

One important piece of information is the DVD included in Box Set has been meticulously synced to the audio ...

Attended by Colonel Tom Parker and Elvis' father, Vernon Presley, Elvis disarms and wins over the New York press corps with his good-natured demeanor. For example, When asked, for example, 'Which kind of song do you like doing the best?' - Elvis answers, 'I like to mix 'em up. In other words, I like to do a song like 'Bridge Over Troubled Water' or 'American Trilogy', or something. Then mix it up and do some rock and roll, some of the hard rock stuff. I'm not the least bit ashamed of 'Hound Dog' or 'Heartbreak Hotel' ...' Rarely is unseen footage of Elvis in concert discovered, so this footage lends historical importance to the package. The film is a revealing portrait of a physically commanding Elvis and his powerhouse TCB Band, background vocalists, and orchestra. Precious little visual documentation exists of Elvis in concert, so this is an historically important discovery.

Also included is a 48 page booklet with a 5000 word essay by Patti Smith's guitarist Lenny Kaye who attended the June 10th show as young reporter for Rolling Stone Magazine will add a special touch to the set. The original MSG release was rush released and as a consequence did not receive the mastering it deserved. This time around Michael Brauer states that the sound is awesome and just like being in the Arena with Elvis!

Release date : October 30.

* Michael Brauer is a New York-based mix engineer whose credits encompass a wide range of genres and includes The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Coldplay, John Mayer, Ash, My Morning Jacket, and more. He won a Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album for his work on John Mayer's Continuum, 'Best Alternative Album' for Coldplay's Parachutes, and also 'Best Rock Album' for Coldplay's 'Viva La Vida'. Given his credentials, we believe he'll bring an interesting mix to these fantastic shows.

Prince From Another Planet takes its title from a New York Times headline that accompanied its rave review of the King of Rock 'n' Roll's four sold-out shows at Madison Square Garden (80,000 tickets sold), the weekend of Friday through Sunday, June 9-11, 1972. CD two reprises the Saturday night show in its entirety, some 20 songs (plus introductions) originally issued on LP on June 18, 1972, just eight days after the concert took place. CD one reprises the (slightly longer) Saturday afternoon show, some 23 songs.

There will also be a 2 CD only set in the Sony 'Legacy' series.
