If we are talking albums that aren't worth playing though, does anyone else remember "The Definitive" series. They actually edited the tracks so that they could fit more on to the CD's. Worthless!



Quite handy for Elvis discos though if one wants to squeeze in a couple of extra tracks, I've found.

Is that the 1973 show where Elvis is in a good and crazy mood and does a more unusual set list and extended running time?

I'm glad they are useful for somebody then. :wink:

As these were relatively early CD releases, they were a major disappointment at the time, when trying to find 'new' songs on the CD format.

I prefer to listen to Elvis sings for children, and grown ups too... vol 1+2.
The Harum Scarum Sessions volume 3 and 6 are also among my favorites...

A lot of FTD within a couple of years due to the fog.

I'd describe it as foul mood with some very mean-spirited asides about his entourage and flunkies.

Crazy, but not good.

In addition to the Ferrente remasters, I also don't think I'll be listening to ELV1S 30 Number One Hits or 2nd To None again.

I have no desire to listen and play again NEW HAVEN '76 and TUSCON '76 from the FTD series. I can't imagine listening to many songs off 1975-76 and 1977 soundboards anymore.

The Essential Elvis series still does get a spin in my household, along with COLLECTORS GOLD. The Bilko, Baxter and Madison boots likewise. The Diamond Anniversary still has their moments (particularly MEMPHIS June 10 1975) but can't stand their reverb these days.

THE BMG Double Features series; a couple are still relevant such as the Roustabout/Viva Las Vegas and Live a Little, Love a Little/ Stay Away Joe/Trouble with Girls/Change of Habit.


Would like to have the New Haven '76 if you don't want to listen to them anymore :wink:

I would guess that I am unlikely to play Harum Scarum, Girl Happy, Kissin Cousins, Paradise Hawaiian Style or Speedway again - although no doubt the odd track or two from those albums get put on compilations I might make (although I can't think of a single song from Kissin Cousins).

My copy of Elvis In Concert disappeared in a house move and I've never got around to rebuying it.

It's probably easier to list the soundboards that I am likely to play again rather than the ones I won't. And there are certainly quote a few of the 2nd discs of Classic Album FTDs that wil never be played again in their entirety.

IMO that Volume Four disc has the best-sounding Burning Love out of all the CDs I have the track on.

Upon release I rip them to MP3 and play them on the computer or on the MP3-player when walking around town.
It is great fun to put the MP3-player on shuffle and be surprised what song will be next.


That's exactly what I do!

For me the answer in 0. I will play them all again. It's Elvis, we have what he provided. Depending on my mood or situation I can always find pieces of his music which fit the occassion. I will continue to play them all!
