1) How is this taking time away from other essential products? Is there some urgency to issuing new FTD's?
2) How is upgrading and/or correcting an FTD a bad thing for fans? People here whine all the time about mistakes being made on FTD releases...
1) It is not. There is not, save that many FTD fans "have turned the sharp corner of 50."
2) No, it is not. Ernst has stated on many occasions he tries to get newly-acquired tapes out as soon as possible.
In the case of the 2009 Girl Happy upgrade, the master reels were an unexpected but cool discovery.
So, what your basically saying in a nutshell is that it was of more urgency to get these newly discovered tapes out
via an upgrade than say, get "From Elvis in Memphis" out on FTD?
I guess I have a bit more grasp on what I consider essential because the Girl Happy could have waited. Yes indeed.
We are still waiting on From Elvis in Memphis. Get my drift.
Considering these same masters were then utilised for a 2010 budget release of 'Girl Happy' it does seem to make little sense of why this was re-pressed in such a hurry. I wonder if the fact that it had been released with the wrong 'You'll Be Gone' take had anything to do with it? Henceforth it now being presented in the FTD catalogue as it should have been presented in the first place.
