Yeah, what we need now is more soundtracks, like "Speedway" and "Kissin' Cousins"!

I am very happy we got "Stay Away, Joe" now because it had been so long since the last soundtrack in the Classic Album Series. Let's all hope and pray that the next one will be here soon.

Please GI Blues vol.2.

One batch of G.I. Blues outtakes is enough for me. No interest in Vol. 2.

It will be coming though. Lots of different takes and versions to go yet. May not be as cool as two batches of Jailhouse Rock but it is still ranks high in coolness.

Regarding a potential FTD release of "Kissin' Cousins," I'd like to see "Kissin' Cousins" No. 1 released with Elvis singing in his regular voice and not spliced with the "hillbilly" version. That song alone would be enough for me to buy the CD!

How about this?

"Kissin' Cousins" (straight "Josh" vocal)
"Kissin' Cousins" (country "Jodie" vocal)

And, of course, as many of the pure, September 1963 Nashville Studio B backing tracks as can fit on one CD.

Kissin Cousins is a bit of a mystery to me. What is there that they have as far as alternates etc.?

I can feel the sarcasm. But some of us enjoy a little bit of soundtrack fun, and "Kissin' Cousins" is great fun for sure. What Ernst could do is include the mono masters as bonus songs, and whatever else he has in terms of outtakes, although I know it's not much.

But I'd rather see a "Kissin' Cousins" FTD with very little bonus material than no "Kissin' Couins" FTD at all. After all, if they could release the "Hits Of The '70s" FTD, they can't argue that they won't relese "Kissin' Cousins" because there are too few outtakes. I want Vic and Sebastian to work on the tapes, and I want Ernst and Roger to design a nice package.

This goes for all the remaining soundtracks. And when they're done they can reissue "Kid Galahad" and "Follow That Dream" with the same VERY nice artwork but in upgraded sound. Thanks.

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

Fri May 24, 2013 12:03 pm

Might I suggest that some evidence that Elvis enjoyed singing 'Stay Away' can be found in the fade-out on the extended master, where he 'echoes' the melody ? Would he have done that if he didn't like the song/melody ?

I also feel that Elvis always liked a song where he could let his voice soar, as on 'Stay Away', and, for example, Follow That Dream and Wonderful World.

Thank you!. That´s what I´ve been trying to explain the last week or so but still some failed to understand that :roll:. Here is one more evidence of this fact: Elvis enjoyed this song very much!!!!! 8). Bye for now :smt006.

The 9-29-1963 Nashville Studio B session was basically engineering whiz Bill Porter's swan song, and to learn what the music sounded like before Elvis taped his vocals at the MGM Sound Stage a few weeks later might be cool. Although most of the material was very poor, the studio and musicians were top-notch. Many feel the final product after Hollywood overdubbing killed the classic Nashville sound. Whether any of the pure backing track reels still exist is unknown, but even a few examples would make for a nice addition.

IIRC, the 10-10-1963 vocal overdubs by Elvis in Culver City have only seen a single outtake surface, the country "Jodie" vocal released on Silver Screen Stereo (FTD, June 2001). Getting both lead vocals in standalone fashion, as noted above, would also be fun. The title track is a decent piece of material. If outtakes of the rest of the vocal session exist, it might be interesting to hear if Elvis acknowledged how bad these songs were.

Beyond that, Kissin' Cousins was one of the first really horrible soundtracks, and FTD will have quite a job making a silk purse out of a sow's ear.

Still, I will buy it, but that's because I am just another crazy fan. ;-)

Good post, Doc.

I'd love to hear "Kissin' Cousins" No. 1 with Elvis singing in his "regular" voice throughout the entire track. You are correct, an acapella "hillbilly" version was released sans the backing track on "Silver Screen Stereo." If I recall correctly, someone later dupped a backing track on the "hillbilly" voice version, which has not been released officially. Was it Jamie Aaron Kelley?

Thanks. No idea who did the mix, but certainly an FTD version of the track will be the one to have.

Hi there!! :D :D :D.

As mentioned at the start of this topic some recording space was not used on the cd and one of the songs that could have been included was the Undubbed Master of Stay Away 8). This has never been officially released before by RCA/BMG/SONY neither by FOLLOW THAT DREAM Collectors Label. Enjoy! ::rocks. Bye for now :smt006.

with the ftd-ftd....i suppose you mean some wobbling sounds at the title track and the outtakes....

This is a release that I wouldn't have bought if it hadn't been for all the positive reviews on this board. And I haven't been disappointed. One question though: didn't Elvis have an agreement with RCA that Dominic would never be released? my God that's a terrible song :cry: It's the only Elvis song I can't listen to, makes Clambake sound like a really good song.

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

Mon Jun 03, 2013 2:43 pm

How about a Spankox Remix of "Stay Away, Joe"? :wink:

Anyway, I have a question:
Elvis made a comment during the recording of "Stay Away": "Yeah, that's a good number, man. It's a good number. Cool" (Track 19, at 02:03).
Was he referring to the song or to Felton's announcement ("Twelve", announcing Take 12)?
My first assumption was he was talking about the song.

I personally love "Greensleeves" but prefer a more slow-paced tempo (or a different arrangement respectively) to it. And with that I don't mean the first takes of "Stay Away". :)

Both "Kid Galahad" and "Follow That Dream" were released before Sebastian, Vic Anesini or Kevan Budd came on board. So there is definitely room for improvement. I think the "Kid Galahad" FTD in particular sounds "thin".
