There are many sets still available but just on ebay or Amazon were they are only sold by sellers. Why?, because it was deleted by BMG just four years later and has not been reissued again officially until now!


Spot-on, Mike. Over 12 years being officially unavailable is quite different. It's not at all analogous to "the same old material on the retail level releases."


Thanks Doc!. It is what it is......


Of course I wanted it in better sound quality but maybe they couldn´t improve it, but as it is for free (2nd cd), I welcome it because they charge it as it were only 1 cd :smt023.

And now I am waiting for the September/October FTD releases, hope it is Flaming Star & Elvis For Everyone! 8). Bye for now :smt006.

They are £20 each. In most cases, that would buy you a 4 or 5 CD box set by any other artist!

You're well aware you're not comparing apples to apples with this statement.

Does anyone know why they omitted the last announcement (1:49) on the 2nd Tupelo show on the new FTD?
There's plenty of space left on the CD.
