... Rob, a little more careful reading, please. Ive already made clear my
pals from SC do not intend to use any more Memphis material on a
possible vol 6... Yes, all the insrumentals are missing, and several
"Rough Mix" songs, such as Im Moving On, Limousine, From a Jack, and
one or two others, didnt make it for inclusion on vol 5.
Simply because: A: they are so close to the final mixed versions,
and B: this volume already runs for about 78 minutes.
And C: the SC people were not at all interested in making a double cd.
Its hard enough to move enough single cds, these days, with so few
buyers left. Ofcourse the live material could have been left out, for the
sake of having the rough mixes included... But we make the decissions,
and the live recordings are so much better than the ones released in
the past. Part of doing these silver rascals is the fun SC gets out of it.
And not just the tons of money that pours in, the minute the cd is
released... :roll:

Patch It Up Baby :)

I´ve ordered mine already. This is another quality release from a must have-label, simple as that!

Given the earlier volumes, "Southern Comfort" can pretty well do whatever its little heart desires...

So it's another release that is making 2007 an all-time bonanza year for Elvis releases, be they imports or official, DVD or CD...

I look forward to it!

I've been lucky enough - as far as obscure sides go- to hear some of these tapes but the audio was as rough as could be...

I'm looking foward to SC's improved audio.

As a bonus to the '69 sessions, it's a neat twist to feature these. They're really more of a prelude to what occured in '69, but we'll take 'em as a bonus ...

:lol: Yes i think volume 5 will be a nice one to look forward too!

I've long known that he was into pills going back to his army stint, but it's still a little unsettling to finally have some audio proof of this, on the cusp of his vaunted comeback no less, instead of relagated to his final years...

Have you heard it? Some might argue there's a tongue-in-cheek element to his commentary that night.

Also, apparently, no one has recognized a MAJOR subtext to these sessions.

Don't know if this is what the Doc is thinking about, but Elvis was to become a father in only a few weeks time... I'm sure that was on his mind a lot at the time of the sessions. And if he acted a bit weird, I don't blame him! I know what I felt before my first child was born, a combination of panic and elation!

Correct!

Not only that, he had expressed ambivalence about his marriage to Priscilla the previous November by telling her he wanted a divorce. Talk about stress, imagine how his six-months-pregnant wife felt? That notion blew over, but was a strong indicator as to his frame of mind as 1968 rolled around.

... "The pills are wearing off" ( as heard during the session) are not

party pills, but birth control pills... Right?!

He was probably saying that sometime in June 1967.

Despite everything, we did get two superb cuts from the January 1968 visit -- "Too Much Monkey Business" and "U.S. Male."
