Which FTD was claiming amazing sound?

Thu Nov 15, 2012 9:00 pm

I'm getting ready to purchase a few more FTDs and I remember one claiming amazing sound. I think it was southern nights or one of the Dixie FTDs. Do any FTDS really have amazing sound?

thanks doc. I agree the studio stuff is stunning.

I was asking about soundboards. I should have made myself more clear.

You may be thinking of "48 Hours to Memphis" which was touted for having great quality for a soundboard release. It is a Mono recording.

It is not a soundboard release.

Soundboard be damned, it is the opinion of this fan that this is the best sounding live show released by FTD.

There is no solid evidence to support your claim... regardless of what you've read on elvis.com.

Derived from what must have been a full professional 16-track multi track recording...

To these ears, that recording is not from a multi-track source unless the engineering responsible for mixing it is hard of hearing...

It's a multi-track source, and sounds wonderful indeed.

This and the 1969 mutli-tracks on FTD are the ones to get first.

I have the 1969 FTD shows. the fact that you recommend anything from the 70s is enough for me. I will put this at the top of the list.

Thanks Doc.

Sorry Rob. I love you too.

You are SO in for a treat.

Sorry doc,
imho the 1969 ones blow the august 1970 shows out of the water. Granted, the sound is fantastic, but unfortunately Elvis wasn't feeling well or was tired because he certainly was not on full throttle that moment. It is still a highly recommended show (if you have all the 69-ers).

The author of the thread is referring to sound quality.

I was aware of that, hence the following comment: Granted, the sound is fantastic, but unfortunately Elvis wasn't feeling well or was tired because he certainly was not on full throttle that moment. It is still a highly recommended show (if you have all the 69-ers).

The 69'ers all sound fantastic with the odd exception of CD1 of the 4cd Las Vegas fest.

Those who don't believe in love will get a shower invite from Rob in the near future. He will change you for the better. He's all about love.

I did have to "fix" #5 a tad.

The mix was done on march 18 at midnight, and was transfer to reel to reel collected by Ed Bonja who gave it to colonel.
after they have finish to transfer the tape, the mobiletruck was heading to Murfreesboro. They have drove allnight over the mountains.
they arrive at 14.00 hours according one of the sound engineer.
In Murfreesboro they have recorded nothing due a malfunction.

The sound of the soundboard from Richmond is similar as the bonus songs on 48 hours to Memphis.
