Not that it matters ale but "All I Needed Was The Rain" is from 1967. Making your own compilations are an essential part of listening to Elvis work and it can be a lot of fun to do.

I always find it uncomfortable listening the same song twice in quick succession, even if it is a different version. Repeat tracks should be kept as far apart as possible.

I did a re-edit of the Road medley:

Trouble/Guitar Man/Let yourself Go/Guitar Man/A Little Less Conversation/Big Boss Man/It Huts Me/Wonderful World/Guitar Man/Little Egypt/Nothingville/Clean Up Your Own Backyard/Trouble/Guitar Man

Also got a nice compilation that goes:


That's All Right (8pm Show)
Too Much Monkey Business
Trying To Get To You (8pm Show)
Big Boss Man
Baby What You Want Me To Do (6pm Show last version)
Hi Heel Sneakers
One Night (6pm edited version)
Guitar Man
Lawdy Miss Clawdy (6pm Show)
US Male
Tiger Man (8pm Show)
All I Needed Was The Rain

I made all the studio tracks into MONO fold-downs so that they don't sound startlingly different to the live tracks, and the applause at the end of each track fades out as the studio selection begins. Great little concept album. Sounds very nice! It's companion, done in the same way with the mono mixes and applause cross-fades goes like this:

Blue Suede Shoes (6pm Stand Up)
A Little Less Conversation
Can't Help Falling In Love (6pm Stand Up)
Wonderful World
Don't Be Cruel (8pm Stand Up)
Edge Of Reality
Jailhouse Rock (6pm Stand Up)
Clean Up Your Own Backyard
Heartbreak Hotel/Hound Dog/All Shook Up (6pm Stand Up)
Almost In Love
Love Me Tender (6pm Stand Up)

After Hits Of The '70s we fans are seriously wishing FTD to do compilations? :shock:

Let FTD provide the Classic albums and soundboards so we can individually all make our own playlists without paying top prices for masters we already own.

Please don't give away my secrets.

It was easy, though. It only took a little over an hour.
