No right?

Where is the FTD Rulebook? Which one has been violated? Please do share.


It's the same rulebook that says Dr John Carpenter will never allow himself to say anything against an FTD product. You know that book, right?

It doesn't exist, except in your mind.

It's my least favorite, of all the FTD releases. It was a poor idea on RCA in 1981, and time has not added any allure to Felton Jarvis's experiment.

There are unused tracks around, but not enough for a sequel on FTD.

Never, huh?

Oops!

Do you enjoy constantly making foolish, erroneous assertions? It's a little embarrassing and a lot irksome.

Maybe you should take a step back, draw a deep breath, and chill out.

Thank you.

To say that it was your least favourite is hardly criticising FTD. Had you criticised FTD for the re-release then you might have a point, but you don't. You simply say that the project is no more appealing to you now than in 1981. If that's as bad a comment as you have ever written about FTD, then I thank you for proving my point correct.

For a man who a couple of years ago accused me of following him around the forum and picking holes and fights with each and every comment he wrote, I find your behaviour over the last week or so somewhat bemusing.

Again, this is what you wrote:

poormadpeter wrote:... Dr John Carpenter will never allow himself to say anything against an FTD product.

The posted example of my critique clearly proves your "never ... say anything against ... FTD" statement false.

You are wrong. Again. Period.

So you need to cut out the parsing of other people's words, using circular logic in so many of your replies, and the near-constant antagonistic tone towards me.

I am tired of your rants, and I am sure everyone else is as well.

I strive to make clear points, often using research that takes time to compile and present. I go out of my way to share information and knowledge on Elvis Presley every single time I log on to FECC. You seem bound to suck the joy out of any topic you visit. You need to stop.

Thank you.

Oh for goodness sake, get over yourself. Let's just have one big "thank you, Doc" section of the board, so we can worship at the temple of the google user.

If your replies take too much of your time to compile, don't bloody write them. This is a much more preferable option than coming on the board and getting your knickers in a twist because people disagree with you or, even worse, don't kiss your backside just because you share your knowledge.

For the record, you will see a number of posts where I praise your sharing of knowledge, and the research you put in for the sake of the board.

Sadly, however, it is becoming quite apparent that this research of yours is being done less and less because you want to share knowledge and give us something, and more and more because you get an ego trip out of people saying how wonderful you are.

If you insist on presenting yourself as a smug, immature child who likes the sound of his voice and throws his toys out of the pram when he doesn't get his own way or someone dares to disagree with him...don't be surprised when people treat you like one.

There was no rant, only putting to bed, once and for all, your forum shenanigans.

We are tired of your tedious accusations and off-topic ripostes. Make a effort to stop leaving a turd in the punchbowl, and strive to consistently contribute in a positive fashion to FECC.

It first charted on February 22, 1970 [peaking at number 8 on March 15].
Not sure of it's chart run, but it spent a total of 8 weeks in the Top 30.

Re: Hits of the 70's - New FTD!?

Sun Nov 25, 2012 5:20 am

Wow! It was released much later in the England than in the U.S. That explains why it and Rubberneckin' are included on the marvelous FTD release "Hits Of The '70's."

Re: Hits of the 70's - New FTD!?

Sun Nov 25, 2012 6:14 am

IMHO "Hits of the 70's" should have been a Legacy release and definitely not an FTD release.

I do agree, 'E, but ordered on sale for 30 % off the other day, the only way

Regardless if it should be FTD or not, it is a good release to listen to. However, why was the Raised On Rock single and its B side not included. This is the only single released in the 70's in England not included. It makes no sense :?: that My Way was included but this one was not.

I'm not up on my Elvis chart placings in England, but if memory serves I believe "It's Only Love" (a minor hit in the U.S.) charted at least Top 10 in England. Whether this happened in the '70's I'm not sure.

I believe it was released after Elvis' death (I'm not at home to check any reference book) and for me it was a surprise as I had never come across it before.
I thought it was a fabulous release at the time (because it seemed "new" and with chart potential).
Went Top 5 in the UK, #3 I think.

A interesting release to do so well in the punk / New Wave era - I was into Talking Heads, Elvis Costello etc at the time.

Cheers

I agree an equivalent should have come out for Legacy instead, but do you really think that badly dated & garish Hits From the 70s cover art should be in the store racks & in normal online stores in 2012?

ENGLAND doesn't have a chart. The UK does but not ENGLAND.

It was 1980 c/w "Beyond The Reef". The single was issued to promote the "Elvis Aron Presley" box set. There was an extended 12" version too.

The flip of the original US single "The Sound Of Your Cry" was also issued as a UK single to promote the album of the same name (UK version of "Greatest Hits Vol.1") c/w "I'll Never Know". Picture discs were also pressed, but the single wasn't a hit.
