Thanks, now I can put the cd in my car.

I believe this a very rare CD specially issued only in Australia and nowhere else?
I hope FTD/BMG will release this superb No.1 album on the 7" Format soon.

Thanks for the great pic.

I have never seen a Roustabout Cd before...!

a damn pity RCA/BMG/SONY have no aspiration/s to release all
of Elvis' original catalog in chronological order, with correct
chronological tracklisting and original artwork...

This was a #1 Lp in January '65!!!

According to a friend, who currently works for BMG, tells me this Lp
sold quite well (1.6 Million units) over most of the other soundtrax at that time.

now, i wanna go play that Double Features disc...!

Kiwi, while both are my fellow Americans, please know that
"Minkahed" is not an alias of Genesim." :lol:

Does someone know if the outtakes are still lost ??? It´s one of my favourites soundtracks.. "Big Love Big Heartache" is awesome!

Fri Sep 09, 2005 10:34 pm

The last time anything was said officially, yes. But that was awhile back.
So, maybe they've found something by now. I've got my fingers crossed.

Fri Sep 09, 2005 11:01 pm

It would be fantastic if BMG release this on FTD as a 2 CD Set in 7" Format ;-)
With many new found outtakes.
They also found I'm a Roustabout. Right?
So maybe they found more interessting stuff from the movie sessions :D

"I'm a Rosutabout" was from an acetate in the songwriter's possession, not from session tapes, so the likelihood of new found takes would be...well, unlikely.

It may be slightly of the thread but while were talking about Roustabout - a public notice to the guy who skillfully created the promo's on '1st, 2nd & Forever', 'Born 2 Rock' & 'Live Spirits' DVD's PLEASE PLEASE give us a promo of 'Little Egypt' with that awful 'kootchy, koochy Koo' dub removed and re-sych'd with the CD master so after all these years I can enjoy watching this classic without putting my fingers in my ears!!!! :oops:

Greg ya nut...you need to get in line if you are gunning to be my nemesis. Even Kiwialan has you beat by a landslide.

I have only one punk that seems to have a never ending fan base no matter what the hell he says. I admit it, I am jealous.

Sat Sep 10, 2005 1:34 am

@Axeman,
yeah, ofcourse I know this ;-)
I was just trying to say, nothing is impossible. They have found in the last years so many new Studio Session tapes / tracks ;-)
Just remember, TT&F Duett, 50's Binaural Studio takes, Long legged girl alt. master; I think I'm gonna like it heare alt. movie master; Treat me nice 1st version (from FTD flashback book) a few more Acetate pressings, etc etc.... ;-)
I am happy to see many many new and nice FTD CD's in the future. I definitive will buy them all :lol:

Absolutely right. Nothing is impossible, and as I said to Tunzi once, nothing exists until it's discovered, so who knows. Those Viva Las Vegas tapes were a real treat, and I think they got Kissin Counsins outtakes recently too.

If you want to go on pipe-dreaming, I'll be glad to come along for the ride ;-)

Who would have thought that in 2005 fans would be aching
for re-releases of ROUSTABOUT material?

We certainly are fanatical, aren't we, Genesim?

I"m right on that, aren't I?


:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:


I'll be "First In Line," not to worry. :wink:

apparently Greg, there's a lot of us still lingering around.

I couldn't buleeve the great response the I'm A Roustabout tune got from fans when first released on Second to None.

I absolutely loved it, and still like it better than the Rubberneckin' remix!

In fact, I played my Lp Mono version of the original Roustabout soundtrack last week and I enjoyed it thoroughly. I knew every word too :!: :!: :!:

Sun Sep 11, 2005 6:29 pm

Don't get me wrong. I grew up with that LP and movie as
a kind of family favorite. Years later, I take a more objective
view of that album versus even other soundtracks.

It was a number one LP, but the fact that it
was the last one for a good while is telling. Some of the material
has merit. I'm fond of probably every song, if only for nostalgia.

I was very excited about the "2nd to None" release of "I'm a Roustabout."

Even now I think it's great that we got a "new" Elvis song at this late
date. You just know that's not going to happen much again in our
lifetimes.

"Feelings" anyone? :oops: :wink:

right on bro...

Exactly how I feel..

"Roustabout" has long been a fave of mine as well. Its got some great songs, even the not so great ones are happy and uplifting. Its also a pretty good movie and the LP cover is one of the best Elvis soundtrack covers there was. As regards being fanatical..... hey, we're Elvis fans :wink: we'll always love anything to do with our man.

Mon Sep 12, 2005 1:14 am

"One Track Heart" is a great song!! Roustabout must be the second film I ever saw from Elvis and I just love it.

Mon Sep 12, 2005 1:54 am

All the songs are very good especially "Big Love, Big Heartache", "It's A Wonderful World", "Little Egypt" and "Hard Knocks". I hope BMG/FTD brings out a 7" Format soon. It will be great to hear alternate takes of "One Track Heart" and maybe unedited long versions of "Wheels On My Heels" and "Carny Town" etc
