It being a '68 anniversary year, those January sessions need to be confronted. They set the context for what was shortly to come. It can be done with sensitivity.

And every last scrap from the Special!! There must be something else. Something cool.

And music from after the Special!

Film outtakes??

Yes... already discussed numerous times on other threads...

I wish FTD or RCA would do an upgrade of the Elvis In Concert LP from 1977. That's a classic and was a top 5 Billboard album. Give it it's proper remixed treatment. Just do away with the stupid fan comments and add Unchained Melody. get rid of comments like "my daughter's 12 years old and doesn't know who the man is" and " we're honeymooners!" Really? :roll:

What's this all about? Is this just a wish or a rumor in circulation?

The source material isn't good enough to justify a blu-ray relase of it. The required 'high definition' simply isn't there and never was. Unless one wishes the same quality as the DVD release but on a blu ray disc...

I always thought it was so stupid to include that comment about the 12 year old girl not knowing who elvis presley is. isn't that a negative statement? WHY would you release it on record for lifetime posterity??

If FTD does a 'classic' album release of EIC it's unlikely that they would do away with the fan comments. Why? For the same reason they didn't do away with the musical snippets between the songs on Elvis Country (as many fans suggested they should)--they're a part of the original album release.

Every time I hear that, I think a kid can't grow up without knowing who Elvis Presley is.

If Sony can get that soundbyte re-mixed and re-mastered, we'd all die happy. Screw the rest.

The only FTD i'm really looking forward to now is, "From Elvis In Memphis". Once they have done this classic album, sadly, i won't be buying anymore FTD's. FTD have done the best of Elvis' classic albums in deluxe packages. "The Boy From Tupelo" set, which is the goldmine of all FTD's was the last GREAT release. I don't think FTD will do Elvis' second album because theres not enough outtakes from those songs to warrant the FTD treatment. I'm not interested in Elvis of the 70's. The vegas shows or any shows outside of Vegas, do not appeal to me. His 70's shows are all too predictable.

But if they do release Elvis' second album on FTD with a few surprise bonus tracks, will you buy it?

It's actually a good live album that audio-wise, is a good representation of the last music of Elvis Presley ever to be recorded. Listening to EIC you would never know that he was sick and in the physical shape that he was in as his vocals were strong and powerful.

It always puzzles me too, ritchie valens, why people are so obsessed with "Elvis In Concert". Some people like mediocre performances for some reason :smt102
