Thank you Elvisa...you can download it at http://www.tcb-world.com/ , along with many other fine covers.

Thank you Bigg Boss Mann, but even that I like your cover it`s a little difficult to replace on the FTD. Offcause you could put the cd in a juvelcase and use the cover, but are people doing that :?:
I`ve had the thought that the cd`s are actually better protected in a juvelcase rather than in digipack, but I`ve never done anything about it maybe I should do it in this case :!:

Personally Elvisa, I prefer the digipack over the jewel case, becasue (at least to me), they are easier to store, plus you don't have to worry about cracking or breaking the case.

Either way, I just love what's inside - the music! :D

BIG BOSS MAN, I agree the music are the reason to buy cd`s, but a nice cover and a great booklet must go with it I think.

All my cd`s are like a treasure to me and I must say that for most part I like the FTD covers just like they are, but I put the digipack covers in small plastic bags to protect them as I think they can never be replaced if something should happen to them. A juvel case can be replaced if it should break.

Yeah, it's true that a nice cover design can really ad to a cd release.

One thing that I wish FTD and other music companies would do is go out and seek "fan feedback" on the artwork, and also maybe allow fans and those who create alternate cd artwork (ex: Unchained Designs, Today Designs, Spinout Designs and Jeanno Designs) the opportunity to develop an artwork design for a release.

But again, the music is what people want more than anything. As long as it's good, then I'll buy it :D

It'd be nice to see a picture of Elvis on the piano sining "Unchained Melody" than a picture of him singing "hurt"
How's that for an idea?

Big boss Man's works are usually a lot better

Yeah, I agree it would certainly ad more realism to the concept for sure. Only problem was I didn't have a photo of him at the piano from this show :cry: , so I decided to use one of him hitting a "high note" so to speak.

Looking great, 'Boss'....

I don't mind the original FTD cover actually but you gotta love the TCB site - one of my faves...

Keep up the great works, folks.

Thank you very much Greg..very kind of you.

I don't put together alternate covers very much, mainly because there's so many good / pro artists out there that create better work then me :D

Happy that you enjoyed it though. :)
