Do you realize its been almost 2 years since we've had a 1976 soundboard release? WTF???

For me there are other priorities. And speaking about odd albums: some remade tracks on I Was The One should be released first. But above all, please let us have Flaming Star and From Elvis In Memphis before compilation albums. There at least 10 Classics in my minds that must come first.

How about a coupling of the the iconic "Elvis Sings Hits From His Movies, Vol 1" and "Burning Love and Hits from His Movies, Volume 2" albums?

Tucson 76 was hardly a stellar early entry in the series, and the care and attention towards the release saw the album originally issued with the title of it misspelled.

No... the original issue was spelled correctly and the reissue has the misspelling. That's even worse!

Throwing in an inadvertent [already issued] alternate version of one of the tracks would be the icing on the cake!

NO! NO! NO!

So you'd rather have further redundant hits compilations on our collectors label just in order for you to have a laugh??!! WTF?

If FTD release "Elvis sings for children....", the booklet would have to be about 500 pages to make me consider purchasing that turkey! :roll:

Redundant to you. Not to me. I believe there's room for "Something For Everybody" on FTD. You're pissing and moaning, Tony. You must be a hardcore.

In some ways, yes, which means I have all these tracks over and over again and don't want my collectors label to be doing budget label hits collections featuring "you don't have to say you love me" for the 387th time. :smt006

The only thing i think is that i have that LP here with other 70's Elvis albums.
Still wonder if it is worth anything cause i see it as just another collection lp i have in store.

Some odd song selections on that collection.

"Old Shep" and "There's Always Me" weren't big, well-known Elvis hits.

I wonder who made the decision to have "Old Shep" in it? So many songs to choose from, many big hits, and they pick "Old Shep"?

Re: Elvis' 40 Greatest (Arcade) - A potential FTD?

Boy, if FTD should even consider to go this route then I have no problems or what so ever to cut on my Elvis expenses. I'll be happy to.

Re: Elvis' 40 Greatest (Arcade) - A potential FTD?

Tue Dec 11, 2012 7:16 pm

Sorry... I can't get excited if this were released on FTD. Personally, I would take a 1976 or 1977 unreleased soundboard before another compilation CD. Just my opinion.....

Let's get serious.

The next FTD should be a "deluxe album" version of this top seller from 1977:

Sure, let's get this one out no later than, say, 2040. ;-)

Getting serious - now that A Boy From Tupelo is out of print, 1975's The Sun Collection would be an ideal candidate for an FTD Classic Album.

I'm not a fan of this album but as you say it was a huge seller and it could be a nice package to have unopened on the shelf!
I knew you weren't being serious you scoundrel you and if I make it to 2040 i will buy it for you doc!

Ha-ha. Probably none of us will be here then. If so, I will want to be wrapped in velvet and caressed by several handmaidens, and will have no time for Elvis audio.

You can get the vinyl of this for about £1 in London by the way. It's virtually unsellable.


I disagree with this. Stone mint copies of this are tricky to find. Most copies have been played a lot. The label variations are quite interesting too. Some claim it's down to the dye used not working properly but regardless, I find it a challenge to find a white label copy in mint. Yellow are easiest to find in mint but even then you don't fall over them for a quid. I've been looking for the elusive red label variant for years but to no avail. I would gladly pay £20 for a mint sleeve mint records copy with a clearly RED label.

Why would anyone want a short, 16 track CD which is just a cut down version of the many, many Sun compilations that have been out since 1975 on a collectors' label??? How about FTD releasing the other 'Starcall' LP, "Pictures of Elvis"?? LOL

You have too much time on your hands, Scott!! LOL. I've seen loads of copies of this at record fairs at usually £1 or £2 top whack. I don't check to see what colour the labels are as I'm usually looking for better items at fairs, not this kind of crap.
