I think with all your input this will be a much longer,permanent thread. and I hope and PROMOTE that plenty of side threads come out of here so we can concentrate on specifics at hand...A Gem from Australia (date very early 80s?) no compression or noise reduction TME (to my ears) BPCD 5076 here is ITG ... 053AEF781D Ps. this is a find! But will show from now on by putting my excitement only on the subject post. :)


I missed this link - and the others (the same ones?) you posted right after it. Could you...would you....? :lol: (Re-post them, that is!)

Tom (from Ohio), I got the Vol. 5 Lp when it first came out in the '80s and the ten-songs total were about right. It's only as CD length as lengthened that this ten-songs on the first CD might seem so stingy...

I still have my copy of the "Elvis' Gold Records, Vol. 5" CD. I thought the mixes were better than the '97 re-release (with extra tracks). My only gripe at the time was that it had only ten songs. Too bad they didn't use the same people (who handled the mix on the "GRV5" CD) to handle the mixes on the 1985 "Always On My Mind" album.

Yeah, Always On My Mind, that was an awful-sounding album! How could they fail so completely? Both CD and vinyl are terrible, and what about that cover? I remember being shocked when I saw it the first time. The original Volume 5 has always been a favourite of mine, though.
