I'm sure you just made Ernst one happy fellow.

I am almost sure that Ernst will pick the show from Charlotte because Elvis sings the very rare Moody Blue there...also the song Where No One Stands Alone will be a bonus song for sure...

no, personally I suppose it will be Montgomery with Unchained Melody. Pls some 3 or 4 bonus tracks from tour, perhaps.

There's something about the Montgomery mix..
I'm 99% sure it's a binaural recording, with Tony Brown way too high in the mix unfortunately.
Maybe they are able to fix that.

Soundwise, Montgomery is the best choice, Moody Blue, Reconsider Baby & Release Me could be used as bonus tracks.

I'd rather have a "new" soundboard though: either Savannah or Hollywood.
But I'm gonna support FTD anyway :wink:

It would be nice for the first '77 soundboard issued by FTD to be something not previously available... but beggars can't be choosers...

well personally i'd take charlotte 20.2.77 + 'bonus tracks' from 16th,17th +21st.

Again, I would vote for Montgomery because I was there :)

Have these actually been confirmed? It seems you all are having a debate over something not official. If it is true then I think it's fine. In order to cover all the tours 1977 does have to be included. Ernst also has stated in the past that he can not, but obviously does, take bootlegs into consideration. If those are the only two surving shows then chances are we will have one of them. If there's more than them two we could end up with one of them, but regardless, in order for FTD to achieve its goal it has to include 1977.

Montgommery 16th and Charlotte 21st ONLY 'surviving shows' crap! sure parts of Orlando 15.2.77 are just about unusable mix, and on 13th Elvis sounds terrible, but we have had soundboard material from 13,14,15,16,21st so far,,.. i would prefer songs to be taken from 16th-21st because Elvis sounds so much better! but as long as i don't already have all the stuff i'll still collect it. :roll:

I'd agree with that.
