There are actually two of these legendary live shows on Disc 2 ... not that it matters to Shop Elvis, I guess.

I'm in no rush to get this seeing as it is 95% rehashed material.

I'm in no hurry. But I do plan to buy it eventually. I usually make my FTD purchases in groups of 3.

Not that it matters to FTD either, seeing how this information comes from the FTD newsletter.

According to a email I received today, FTD (Denmark) have issued apologies to respective supplies about delays in recent releases,this is due to Roger Semon spends most of his time in Florida and Ernst is spending more and more time in New York consulting for Sony Music and working on their Elvis catalogue.

Does this mean the FTD side of things are beginning to come to it's conclusion in a year or so as Sony's concern may be aim more and more at the general public market rather than the collector's side?

With the slow down in sales on FTD we all have to realise that sooner or later this may end?..... I hear a hooray from some corners and a aah from others.

Just a footnote details of July's title(s) will be announced at the end of June....hopefully. :smt006

Looks like the info is already out (at least in part) thanks to Elvis: The Man & His Music:

Is Shop Elvis USA including the replacement disc for the Destination CD with the new FTD?

Re: "Love Me Tender" FTD In Stock & Shipping!

Shop Elvis shipped my "Love Me Tender" yesterday and it is scheduled to arrive next Wednesday. I don't know if the replacement disc is included, but will let you know when the parcel arrives. In the past, they have included replacement discs when needed, so I'm expecting it to be included this time as well

Apparently, Shop Elvis does not yet have its replacement stock of discs from FTD. It will likely be a separate shipment for the replacement disc. Looks like fans will be stuck with Tulsa's See See Rider a bit longer.

Well, that is going to be an issue moving forward. The well of archival studio material is certainly drying up to some degree. The FTD editions of "Elvis" and now "Love Me Tender" are glorified reissues of great material; with nearly all of it being previously released. They are well sequenced, constructed products on their own right, but for the majority of fans FTD caters to, the material is simply a recycling of material already in most collector's collections. It appears FTD has decided to fill in the gaps of missing "classic album series" titles that do not have associated unreleased outtake material by simply creating deluxe packages of mostly previously released material. Hopefully FTD does not continue down this road indefinitely.

My new LMT FTD arrived today. No replacement disc for Destination USA enclosed with it.

May I ask, what material exactly is previously unreleased FTD, Sony, RCA or White Whale?

I miss my Keith Flynn!

Wouldn't it be nice if Sony/Legacy did a box set (like the YMWTBB) but for the American Sound stuff? Putting together all the existing outtakes and mono and stereo masters etc with a nice booklet. I think it deserves this treatment.

Just a thought.

Yes, it deserves this treatment. But speaking strictly for myself, I own the 3 FTD releases of this material as well as all the main label releases. That's enough for me. But, to each his/her own if it ever happens.

Yes, i have them too. But i would replace them for a nice box set though...

Problem is, lately these deluxe box sets are coming packaged in these large to medium sized "suitcases" which I have no room to store. I'm good with what I've got.

I, too, received Love Me Tender -- just pried it out of the mailbox and I'm scanning it into my music server as I type.

Of course I expect exactly zero surprises, but we'll see what they might have done to clean up the fairgrounds shows ...
