No, it's not an FTD release. It is a bootleg. You can find information on this CD and many other bootlegs by visiting the Import List on this site.

This was the very first "import" I ever bought, and remains one of my all-time favorites.

Has anyone seen "those two" lately?? Image

I know that EPE is cracking down on bootleggers, but DAMN!!!!

Yes, they are getting violent. I have read they just shot down the "Elvis A Rama" museum.

EPE is cracking down on bootleggers???

So the third world war begun! :shock:

Maybe they try to kidnap one or two famous bootlegers and replace them with cyborgs. I have seen something like that in a movie and it was scary!

... Can it be, under the 3rd blanket some recently found tapes are hidden? Can we have a look? Where were these photos taken, Tom?! Poor bootleggers... they were a blessing to the Elvis World. May Santa find them a cool place in Heaven. With lots of pretty Angels, stacks of vintage comic books, tasty cheeseburgers, cokes, and a truckload of furry friends to cuddle up to. Meow!

Finding The Way Home is one of the best bootlegs ever ! All outtakes from the '69 sessions. Just great. I'll remember one outtake from Suspicious Minds were Elvis sings at one point..."would I still see, see, see f u c k you, rider..."
And of course the "famous" remarks during Only the Strong Survive: "I said, why don't you give me a friendly chance. She said listen, you little cock-sucker..".

Considering the size of the third blanket, I'd say it's only a couple of tapes or Charlie Hodge.

"Finding The Way Home" is an ESSENTIAL own.

Best boot ever released, hands down, IMO.

Totally Stung was pretty amazing. And for the old LP days, who can forget the Rockin' Rebel Series or those great Audifon albums like Behind Closed Doors?

Those are all great boots, but the one that does it for me is the 1961 benefit show. It is still the most stunning thing ever released.

An essential bootleg.

Good to see Totally Stung get a mention, got that not long ago.

I also love the Something Complete, Kiss me Quick/Little Sister and Night Rider 61 imports. Excellent performances in super sound.
