Fri Feb 27, 2009 6:57 pm

Anybody got an idea, if and when this CD was released?
Just wonder, cause the artwork does not look too bad.

????????

What should I be talking about?
I was never talking about recovered outtakes and such things.
Please re-read the few words in my post.

I was just asking if that CD has been released?

It's not the one that's derived from the bootleg FROM THE BEACH TO THE BAYOU is it?

That vinyl had c-r-a-p sound on the KING CREOLE side.

have better sources since been located?

T-R-O-U-B-L-E, Please explain?

Seems you don't get what I tried to tell you...
I do NOT know more about this CD than you do!

There was a mention on this website, that this CD would be released.
What ever outtakes aside the already known would be on it and what sound this CD would have - I don't know.
Anyway, let's hope FTD releases some cool King Creole outtakes in the first place.

Perhaps that is what the bootleggers are waiting for. :evil:

Indeed, My friend. That would be great. Should have happened last year as it was 50th anniversary.

If King Creole outtakes exist don't you think that at least one would have appeared by now.

Like on the Close Up box for example.

KiwiAlan,

Why Don't You Just... :evil:

Why don't you just ...send a pm to doctorjohncarpenter and maybe he could ask Ernst Jorgensen about the possibility of King Creole outtakes being available. It's worth a try. Doctor John
has had Elvis related phone conversations with EJ in the past. :)

It was debunked on this very site not too long ago; perhaps artwork is as far as the makers dared push this one.

Thanks Doc.
I did not see that information.
Sad though, as the King Creole soundtrack might consist of some cool outtakes that have yet to see the light of day.

Thanks for posting these infos, KingElvis.

Seems we do have to wait until FTD will release a proper upgraded King Creole alblum. No outtakes of Trouble, Dixieland Rock, Danny, New Orleans, Hard Headed Woman and so on.
I think most of the mentioned outtakes - if not all - have been released before. Mostly in shocking bad sound quality, except for these very, very few outtakes from the "Golden Archive" guys or RCA/BMG.

Well, I won't waste my money on this one.

I would say these 'versions' are completely fake.

Re: What happened to "King Creole Outtakes" release?

Thu Apr 16, 2009 8:33 pm

There once was a boot vinyl called "From The Beach To The Bayou".
IIRC the tracks were lifted directly from this one..with faked take slates which were stolen from other sessions (Blue Hawaii)...
