I've got it! It's a great compilation album. Since I have the LP and also made my own CDR with bonus' I like this very much. Listening to disc 2 first and it sounds good. And it states that it is My Way from Elvis In Concert which sounds very good on this release! But, If you have the 70's box set, you got your singles there as well. :)

I've reluctantly ordered it as a completist but had to think twice.I hope this is a one off as next time I won't get such a release.

But many times I'm fortunate to have multiple copies of sets
(everyone of my family and friends knows I'm a big Elvis fan).

I happen to have an extra copy of both of those titles.
Don't know whether I should trade them or sale them.
Just don't tell the person(s) who gave them to me.


Wow!! I wish I had friends that would lavish £100 box sets on me all the time as a 'surprise'!! :)



Tony I guess I'm lucky that way.

Most of the time I'll buy the CD sets or books
myself. And then later some nice person gives
or trades me another copy. If I had the room I'd
probably keep them all.

Are you sure? After all, you bought this one.

FTD are laughing all the way to the bank with this release.

Yes I'm sure.If FTD do a similar release I will definitely absolutely no doubt about it consider not buying it.Maybe.

Thanks Doc, I read this on my mobile on the way to work this morning and I now can't get that song out my head!

Yuk! That conjures up all sorts of images in my mind! LOL. In my opinion, this FTD set isn't worth a w*nk! LOL

Isn't it time then for another giveaway, Rob?

By the way, I'm one of those who didn't buy it. :smt001

Tony may not approve of you having one.

Re: Have you bought HITS OF THE 70's?

Fri Jan 04, 2013 9:12 pm

Yes, I have bought it to have the FTD collection complete. I have listened to it once, now it's stored in my shelve forever.

But if they are coming up with such stupid discs (seems to me almost like these Dutch "How to make a quick buck" series of old vinyl records) I think that I have to think it over if I still want to have my FTD collection complete in the future. ;-)

Not at all. Maybe one of your imaginary 10 copies contains the correct version of "My way"!!!??? :smt003

Re: Have you bought HITS OF THE 70's?

Fri Jan 04, 2013 10:38 pm

Which version of "My Way" Is on this release?? Is it the 1970 or 77 single version? :?

I havent bought an FTD since Jailhouse Rock. The only 'completist' sceanrio I ever cared about are the records that came out in his lifetime. Everything since then doesnt have the same meaning to me with a few exceptiions. This release is a total joke IMO.

Re: Have you bought HITS OF THE 70's?

I'll answer the original question: No, I haven't.
Why not? Because it wasn't released in its original form (the mono mixes are still missing).

Please SONY/BMG/FTD: How about "This Is Elvis"? It has never been re-released.

FTD mistakenly included the April 25th, 1977 performance (from Platinum and Spring Tours) instead of the correct June 21st, 1977 performance (from Elvis In Concert) that appeared as a single and was one of Elvis' "Hits of the 70s", and from which the sleeve is emblazoned in the booklet. Go figure!
