Although I haven't had a chance to listen to all the tracks yet what I have heard is very good and, to me, sounds better than on previous releases. Of course, this is just my opinion and others may feel different when they hear it. It is nice to have all the material in one place and I am sure the whole package will be impressive… just hope I get sent a finished copy :)

Have you had an opportunity to check out the sound quality of "Oh Happy Day?" Thanks!

Hi,

Although I haven't listened to all the tracks yet, work keeps getting in the way, I can answer a couple of questions.

The 12 August (MS) runs for 77 minutes and 26 seconds.

I compared Oh Happy Day and to my ears they are no different.

Hope this helps.

If possible, can you confirm who mixed & mastered the box set?

I was only sent the tracks (in digital format) and the front cover. I haven't received any booklet, liner notes or credits yet. Hoping I may get a copy of the booklet soon.

FYI - if the info is correct from Wikipedia, and I calculated it correctly in Excel, the August 12 MS is longer on the box set.

TTWII Special Edition = 72:31

TTWII Deluxe Edition = 77:26

Quite true, while in principal I agree wholeheartedly, I feel there's no point wasting my money when there's a chance to buy something as cheap as one possibly can, any cash saved can go to the next new FTD release that can only be obtained from Elvis Shop London or NDT. On the subject I wonder if FTD give us August 'off' from a new release, to enable us to afford the TTWII box? :mrgreen:

Has it been confirmed that the ugly yellow "DELUXE EDITION" is going to be on the 10 disc set? I much prefer the plain(no writing) originally posted. I wanted to display this along with the classy CM set but if it has the ugly print on it, it won't fit with the CM set.

Hi,

The version of Love Me Tender runs for just over 7 minutes and I believe the audience walk is part of this.

I am waiting to hear about the packaging as I received a few images which include the cover without the wording. I am wondering if the cover will be the photo and it will have a clear slip-cover with the wording on. I also wonder if this will be a standard CD size or like the Prince From Another Planet or Elvis At Stax sets. If I find anything out I'll post later.

I have listened to so much of the set and need to take a break. I am going to start on my blog entry/review and go back and listen to more later.

Peter

I mentioned a wraparound/slip case in an earlier post. I do hope thats the case, as for size, I'm thinking more YMWTBB 12" LP size.

My real hope is that the ugly writing on cover is done by Amazon for information purpose only on their site.........

The link I offered was £99.99 post free. I have no shares in the companies mentioned, I was simply sharing what I thought was a reasonable price, for the benefit of other members to save a few quid. Other retail outlets are, of course, available...;-)
