Yes, I just hate it when an interesting thread is ruined because the boys get into a pissing contest.

Back to the topic at hand. What makes this FTD such a highly touted release? There is only a handful of titles on here and some are putrid movie songs, so why such a high rating. I already have some outtakes of the best 2 songs, US Male & Monkey Business. What justifies the 35.00 one would spend on this?

So, are we saying the US single version of Charro is in stereo? I used to have it, but it has been so long I do not remember. And on the Camden LP it was in mono, right?

No, the song "Charro" was/is also in stereo on the 1970 Camden LP Almost In Love.

Maybe some of you don't understand what just happend or the seriousness of the crime. One member of this board tried to enjoy latest FTD release without even trying to "appreciate the aesthetic that FTD embraces with each terrific title" and without "a deep knowledge of the history"!

The son of b**** needed to be corrected.

Speaking strictly for myself, I was raised on the "movie years." It's when I grew up. The movies (and their music) is why I became an Elvis fan. I enjoy the movie music. I want it, I'll enjoy it and I can afford it. That's justification enough for me.

Well I'll be damned! Did you know my name was listed in the acknowledgments on the 2nd editon of Presleyana? Rod Kinkade. I supplied info on LSP2999 (page 147) and CPL1-1349 (page 106). My name is on page 3.

I appreciate you answering Jerry, but I need to hear from a more unbiased. I've seen your posts here and elsewhere and I know you'd rather hear bland soundtracks over his rock and roll 50's classics. Songs that made Elvis, well, Elvis. I cannot take the opinion of someone who would put down All Shook Up and prefer over Blue Hawaii. Sorry, but again, thanks.

If you feel "Too Much Monkey Business" and "U.S. Male" are the first high-water marks of Elvis' renaissance as one of the great rock 'n' roll artists, half of this collection offers them in various master and alternate versions, and have never sounded better. If you also find "All I Needed Was The Rain" and "Stay Away" as decent or better soundtrack cuts, they are here in best-ever sound as well, and use another third of the FTD release. It's not "Jailhouse Rock," but Elvis was finding his way home, and the journey is still neat to hear.

Plus, he swears a lot between takes. ;-)

Thanks that's the answer I was looking for. I do like those songs you mention very much. However, it will still be hard for me to part with 35.00 on any CD featuring Dominic.

Re: FTD Stay Away, Joe Excellent!!!!!!.

Wed May 22, 2013 5:37 pm

I recently got my hands also on this FTD and i liked it.

Image

Everybody knows me as a normal fan for over almost 40+ years and i am not much into nerdie stuff or talk cause there is more in life then Elvis.
I didn't like all the songs but compared to other FTD's i liked songs number:

1,5,7,8,9,10 and 19.

Those are the great versions ones imo of the whole cd.

8
/ 10
I would also like to recommend the cd " You know, i don't "

Re: FTD Stay Away, Joe Excellent!!!!!!.

OK but let's be honest... who skips over Dominic when it comes on? Raise your hands...

Doc's and Jerry Nodak's cogent replies notwithstanding, none of the discussion in the first four pages of this thread helped answer the question?

Skatterbrane, did you just discover your name in the credits? Why did you mention it in this thread? Just curious.

From this excellent cd 8), please find here below a rip of part of the audio (to not spoil the fun to possible buyers), that proves that Elvis really enjoyed the recording of Stay Away-Take 11 (Track 19) plus partial dialogue :wink:. Enjoy!. Bye for now :smt006.

No, I have an original copy of that book, and noticed it back when I bought it new. I only mentioned it because the book was referenced as proof Charro 45 was in stereo, which I NEVER noticed until a link in this thread pointed it out to me.

When I owned the 45, I only had a mono record player, so I never noticed it was in Stereo before. I may have forgotten it was in stereo when I owned the Almost In Love LP, which, by then I did have a decent stereo.

Hey, my name is also listed on Webb Wilder's "More Like Me" CD in the special thanks section, for supplying guitar pickups on one of Webb's guitars he plays on the album. Though my last name is spelled wrong. Webb poses with a picture of Elvis on the back of the CD booklet too!

Re: FTD Stay Away, Joe Excellent!!!!!!.

I finally got to listen to this one and I must say, I'm really impressed by the sound. The booklet is also well done and the songs are not the worst ones Elvis recorded during the 1960s. So once again I have to say: THANK YOU, FTD! :D

If we keep praising this excellent release it will become one of the most entretaining cd of the whole FTD catalogue 8). Bye for now :smt006.
