And I hate being ripped off for no other reason than to pay for 2 volumes when it should have only been one.

Please, cut the crap. The difference between the cover of Elvis At SUN and the MRS art is the difference between tasteful and tasteless.
And ALL of the other images used for Elvis At SUN were kept to their original BxW or color pedigrees.
the value of the MRS sets is suspect on many levels.
For example, if a retired person who possessed a item of value was approached by one person and then another for the same item, would that make it easier or harder for FTD to get the job done, and done well?
All this "competition" engenders are headaches for the people who are trying to create a definitive statement of Elvis Presley's early career.

When did I do that?

OK ... since you are rather close to the inner workings of this product, I don't need to elaborate on why the MRS project is a thorn in the side of those people trying to accomplish something precious and rare.

I now realise who you are now 'KingOfTheJungle' and that you are connected to both (MRS & FTD) projects!
