I pre-ordered these from Shop Elvis last week and it said these would be shipped on or before 12-14-12. I'm guessing the chances of this happening is zero, correct?

The rehearsal is pretty decent audio, better than I expected.

‘Blueberry Hill’ is a nice relaxed version, Elvis does not exert himself too much, but it has a lovely lazy feel to it. Typical Elvis lyric changes about taking the pill, etc.

‘Little Sister’ starts with a fade in – the first verse missing.

‘My Babe’ is a notch faster than the ’69 version, not as groovy. Very interesting James Burton guitar solo not heard in other versions.

‘True Love Travels’ is not the rehearsal that we know. This one is actually better – vocally very close to the ’69 master.

The good news is... There's a lot more where this came from.

Audio has been done by Lene Reidel.

Those that only know the August 12 Dinner Show from the bootleg are in for a treat. The audio is fantastic. Hard to believe that it’s a soundboard,
as it really sounds like a pro recording. The difference is like night and day. Audio done by DHAC at Sony NYC.

Frieser and Slebos have collected many rare, great photos for the packaging, and the 7 inch packaging really does them justice. They also found lots of cool memorabilia, documents, etc.

I can’t wait to have this one in my hands. This is going to be one of FTD's best releases so far (I know, quite a statement, but I stand by it). Amazing that stunning releases like this are still coming out after all these years.



How do you know all this and that "there's a lot more where this came from" please 'Rock'. Who are you and how are you involved with FTD please?

Hi all! I'm new to the forum and I had a question. Does anybody know when or if the October FTDs (From EP Blvd. & the vinyl Elvis Country) will be available again on Elvis.com? I've tried emailing them and have gotten no response. I assume they're temporarily sold out and are waiting for another shipment to come in. Does anybody know for sure?

Thanks, and happy to be here!

if so.... well (obviously) i would be upset.... why wouldn't anyone when its NOT that hard to have some basic 'quality control',....well unless the person mastering couldn't care less about how Elvis sounds!~
i know quite a bit about this from behind the scenes,.... and b4 2010 QUALITY of releases was much, MUCH better...with not too much to complain about. :|

Well. I guess I can answer my own question since Christmas is 3 weeks from today and the new FTD's are not out there is no way I will have these here in the U.S. by Christmas. :(

Hi and welcome to the board! I can't answer your question as I am UK based. I get mine from now dig that or Elvis shop London. I think that others outside of UK may also use them as still quicker than USA alternatives. Hope you enjoy being here

FTD have advised that the 'G.I. Blues Special Edition' 2 LP Vinyl Set will be delayed until after December 7 and WILL NOT ship with the CD releases. The CD releases are Back In Memphis as a 2 CD set in the Classic Album series which dives into the 1969 sessions in Memphis featuring 'Suspicious Minds' as a bonus track and 3000 South Paradise Road in a 2 disc 7" 'Classic Album' format with a 16-page booklet. This release takes a closer look at Elvis' engagement at the Las Vegas Hilton with a soundboard recording in August of 1972. The main disc is from the dinner show on August 12, and the second disc is culled from the rehearsals on August 4th, the date of the opening of the engagement. Both CDs are due for release 'any day now'.

Wow, this year has been extraordinary. My sincere thanks to all the people involved. Thanks FTD and Sony.

I don't know why anybody bothers ordering FTD's from "Shop Elvis". All we ever read here is that they're 'out of stock', the item is 'not listed', it's more expensive than elsewhere, they take an age delivering them, everyone else gets theirs before. Surely there must be some Elvis outlets stocking these items in the US? They could probably do with your support.

They are definitely not more expensive than elsewhere. And with a couple of exceptions, every FTD I have ordered from elsewhere has either been counterfeit or had some other issue.

As long as you buy FTDs from reliable shops like Now dig this or Essential elvis you are safe.....sounds like you have bought from some con people on ebay.

"Audio done by DHAC at Sony NYC" for the Rehearsal disc.

Is that correct?


What, or who is 'DHAC'??


Hopefully, DHAC doesn't stand for Doesn't Have A Clue. :wink: :)

Yes, one con person. Not all of the issues are with the shop, though. I don't need to pay those higher prices and take the extra risk of having them shipped overseas when I can order from ShopElvis.

I guess I didn't state (or even imply) in my earlier post that I have no need to purchase my FTDs anywhere but ShopElvis.
