Wanted: FTD Elvis Is Back (second pressing)

Sun Jun 02, 2013 8:36 pm

Hi,

I'm looking for a (if possible sealed) copy of ELVIS IS BACK FTD - 2nd pressing (the one with darker colors on the cover and RCA on the front cover).

http://www.elvisoncd.com/EIGENECD_a-z/f ... isback.htm

If someone can help, please send a PM.

Thank you!

Hope you find that CD.

Has the title been officially deleted from the FTD Label?
If so, that's an odd choice to delete.

That's interesting. I had no idea that there were three different pressings. I'm 99.99% sure I have the first pressing, with Nipper on the cover.

For what reason would they remove Nipper?

I think because of legal rights in Europe, so they changed the Nipper to RCA. But until a few days ago I didn't know that there are two different pressing of the "RCA version".

I have bought the first pressing (with the Nipper) when the EIB came out back then. Afterwards I learned about the fact that there is a different version (with the RCA sign). When I bought this one I thought this would be the 2nd pressing. But it was already the 3rd pressing with lighter colors on the cover.

Now I have found a copy of the 2nd pressing (with the RCA sign, but dark colors on the cover) on Elvis Matters which will hopefully arrive very soon.

If it's not too much trouble, could you post scans of all three?

Hi there!! :D :D :D.

I have the first pressing with the Nipper and I prefer it this way as it is the same cover as the original 1960´s U.S.A Lp 8). Bye for now :smt006.

Hi, I'm still waiting for the copy to arrive from Elvis Matters, but you can find all 3 pressings here with all differences listed ...

http://www.elvisoncd.com/EIGENECD_a-z/f ... isback.htm

When I have received the 3rd version, I can upload cover scans, no problem at all.

Re: Wanted: FTD Elvis Is Back (second pressing)

Fri Jun 14, 2013 8:31 pm

Ah, too bad, received the CD today, it's again the 3rd pressing that I already had and they said it would be the 2nd one ... :-(

Back to the start ... who can help with a 2nd pressing?

Re: Wanted: FTD Elvis Is Back (second pressing)

Mon Jun 17, 2013 10:46 pm

OMG! :shock:

Is there more information available or even picture(s) where you can see the exact difference(s)?


Still trying to find the 2nd pressing now, but maybe it isn't even the 2nd pressing anymore? :mrgreen:

Re: Wanted: FTD Elvis Is Back (second pressing)

Mon Jun 17, 2013 11:06 pm

Hi Walker,

Here we have Front and Back Cover Scan.

The RCA Victor RCA logo is diff. thicker lines and smaler, Look also at the yellolw sticker with tracklisting. This is also diff. the LSP/LPM is missing.

On the Back you can see in addition the SONY logo + the white frame is missing here.

:wtf: Now this is a true Collectors-Label. You must buy different editions. Is this the same with other FTD-releases? :evil:

Re: Wanted: FTD Elvis Is Back (second pressing)

Wed Jun 19, 2013 11:48 am

Thank you Andy! :smt023

And yes, it seems like FTD has become a true collector's label now ... :roll:

Re: Wanted: FTD Elvis Is Back (second pressing)

Mon Jun 24, 2013 10:42 pm

I would like to have all four pressings, but I only have two now, so anyone who can provide a copy of pressing number 2 and number 4 ... thank you!
(Have lots of items to trade if you prefer trading instead of selling).

Re: Wanted: FTD Elvis Is Back (second pressing)

Thu Jun 27, 2013 10:43 pm

Are my eyes deceiving me, Andy, or is the star (between Miracle and Surface) also different on the 4th pressing (only 8 corners), plus the arrow between "living" and "stereo" (on the black rectangular) less long?
The yellow sticker image also seems to be positioned lower than the first 3 pressings? Also, on the back, the "The Album" and "March Session" is different: written below instead of on the same line with "Disc 1:" and "Disc: 2".

I'm in the same position: only have the 1st and 3rd pressings while I presumed the 3rd was the 2nd.

And I also have loads upon loads of original imports to trade (1-1), just PM me if you have 2nd or 4th pressing available sealed.

Isn't this Elvis hobby F-U-N ? :mrgreen:

Re: Wanted: FTD Elvis Is Back (second pressing)

Fri Jun 28, 2013 8:50 am

Hi James,

The Miracle Surface star is the same. The Scan is not very good. The star is a bit smaller.
Yes the Album and the March SEssion writing is a bit different. You are right. Did not noticed this.

Also the Yellow sticker picture on the front cover is different.+ it has the LPM/LSP-2231 missing on the yellow sticker.

The ELVIS Picture on the Frontcover is a bit smaller BUT more complete!!

BTW I am searching the 2nd PRESSING !!! :oops:
If anybody can help send me a PM :mrgreen:
