Review: 'Studio Sessions '56: The Complete Recordings' 3 CD/172 Page Book Set

Let's take a look at 'Elvis Studio Sessions '56' and see how it compares to RCA's 'Young Man with the Big Beat' and Follow That Dream Records' releases. All in all, 'Studio Sessions '56: The Complete Recordings' is another fine release from Memphis Recording Service that can be recommended to anyone who wants all of Elvis' 1956 studio recordings collected in one place and presented in a nice way. It is also a great companion release to RCA's boxed set 'Young Man' (and especially the 2014 European reissue that has almost the same book format as this release) as it includes material not included on that release.

Another volume in the 'Spliced Takes' series has been announced this time we have 'Spliced Takes Nashville Revisited'. Another 'must have' release in this great series, this time even more edits/splices were done to make an exceptional album, where tracks sound so much different than what is out there, no fake overdubs, but some tracks have been overdubbed, using snippets from the actual 'recording sessions'.

Review : 'The Wonder Of You: Elvis With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra' CD

Sony has done some outstanding reissues featuring Elvis, including taking some chances with the King. This 'new' Elvis Presley album includes the King singing lovely with his backing band at the time with newer overdubs by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. This is the second time this has been done, telling me people are digging it. I found myself really liking the first album, 'If I Can Dream', simply for the fact they cherrypicked some of El's best vocal performances and added simple, organic and extremely tasteful snippets of the Royal Philharmonic. The results were surprisingly good, with the string arrangements totally unobtrusive to the main instrument, being Elvis' voice. 'The Wonder of You' focuses less on El's big, well-known hits for '70s material featuring the master soul-mining newer pop material, and, many times, far surpassing the 'original' versions. Elvis' band at the time was top-notch in the studio, so that was an important element for this to work. Well-recorded and mixed, the songs stand by themselves.

Elvis In Concert (1977) 'No Comments' CD

'If You Haven't guessed by now... it's been 40 years!' CMT is back with an outstanding release! It's been 40 years since RCA released 'Elvis in Concert', still a favorite after all these years, not only for historic reasons, cause although not in good health Elvis' voice was still incredible!  The producers have done a new approach on these recordings, and decided to make a more enjoyable version by cutting out all the fans comments, and edit the performances to one live concert, using 24Bit 96KHZ audio for the best possible sound. Most edits sound better then the original ones ... Including all songs from the original double album, plus five rare MULTI track bonus recordings, including a rocking 'Mystery Train'/'Tiger Man' bringing the total to 33 tracks! Presented in six panel digipack, with artwork matching the original release, including beautiful rare pictures.
