FTD's for 2013...

Sun Jan 20, 2013 6:08 am

I'm going out on a limb here and predicting that the first batch of FTD's for 2013 will be announced on Friday, February 1, 2013. :smt045

I'd bet you'd be more than elated to find out that the new release will be a 2 CD deluxe version of "Elvis Sings For Children & Grown-Ups Too"

That's a bet you would lose. As if you were serious.

My guess is, another concert. Another rehearsal. From Elvis in Memphis. GI blues volume 2. Flaming star soundtrack.

Probably at least 2 of these will come out.

Yes, and add Love Me Tender and vol. 2 for Guitar Man (I know it won't be called that).

GI Blues Vol 2 is probably certain.
From Elvis In Memphis is probably certain in either 2013 or 2014
Moody Blue too.

I would LIKE some release combining Stay Away Joe sessions with The Trouble WIth Girls, Live A Little Love A Little, Charro and Change Of Habit. I don't want to spend $30 a pop for separate releases on these. They could probably do these in two releases. Maybe they could do Elvis For Everyone, to INCLUDE Flaming Star? (since Summer Kisses Winter Tears is already on it?? Who wants to spend $30 on only 4 songs and their alternates?
I would like to see For LP Fans Only and A Date With Elvis, maybe as one release.

King Creole without the book would be nice
A Boy From Tupelo without the book would be nice.

Elvis In Concert, just having both concerts issued in their entirety, June 19th on disc one and June 21 on disc two, would be great. The other interesting and significant recordings prior to these in 1977 that were recorded in hopes for material to fill out Moody Blue, could be included in the FTD Moody Blue.

And if they ever find a source FTDs of Kissin' Cousins. Roustabout, and Speedway. I would also like to see Golden Records vol 1, 3 and 4.

You see, even though material would be repeated, I would like to see a FTD classic album for EVERY LP released in his lifetime, except the budget LPs.

Oh, and here's to the hope they eventually find the stereo masters to Follow That Dream. I would buy an updated Follow That Dream FTD classic album release if they did.

Here's my top 10 FTD wishlist for 2013 (in no particular order):

1. August 11, 1970 DS
2. Elvis In Memphis
3. Elvis In Concert (Rapid City show remixed and released in its entirety)
4. Elvis' Golden Records
5. April 9, 1972 8:30pm Hampton Roads, VA show
6. August 3, 1969 DS soundboard
7. November 25, 1976 Eugene, OR soundboard
8. Roustabout (including remastered I'm A Roustabout)
9. King Creole
10. July 1975 tour show soundboard or good quality audience recording

A Love Me Tender/Flaming Star paring [possibly all in stereo] would be my favoured choice on FTD.

And although it wouldn't be at the top of my wish list; Elvis For Everyone deserves it's own Classic Album treatment - but only [unlike HOT70's] if some of the related anomalies are included.

Surely BY NOW we are OVERDUE for a FTD announcement? :wtf:

Being a "classic album", FTD would no doubt include the original album (hopefully remastered) on disc one.
Disc two would more than likely include only the entire June 21 show (hopefully remixed/remastered). The June 19 show suffered from recording problems during some songs of the concert, if I remember correctly. The best highlights of the June 19 show was included on the original album anyway.

I'm with ya' 100% on that, skatterbrane! :smt023

I would like to see Elvis In Concert made in the same fashion as 68 Comeback Special 4 cd edition

1. original album + Unchained Melody overdubbed
2. 19.06.1977
3. 21.06.1977
4. 26.06.1977 last concert (audience or soundboard if possible)
a booklet

and dvd made in the same fashion as Aloha From Hawaii 2 dvd edition
1. original show + bonus videos from tour (last concert etc) + TV news about 16.08.1977
2. 19.06.1977 + 21.06.1977

Sorry, but the quality of Elvis' performances aren't worthy of an official set made in the fashion as '68 Comeback Special 4 cd edition.
Please don't start the '77 dvd crap... again. :facep: It ain't gonna' happen.

So a 2-cd set from FTD wouldn't be enough for you?! Geeezz!

Of course it will be nice (chepaer) to release it officially, but I think it will be very nice to have everything in one box, not only original album + 21.06.1977 or 19.06.1977 + 21.06.1977 as mentioned above

I too would be happy with such a release because both shows were recorded professionally. Granted, Elvis does struggle overall, especially in Omaha but their are a few good performances, and the Rapid City show is one of the best from 1977. IMO it would make a very nice FTD release.

What about the LEG PERF Series being reissued but expanded, or would these be LEGACY release ?
