As I look at Keith Flynn's Elvis sessions site, there's not too many complete outtakes left unreleased. There's a lot of false starts still unreleased. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to all those and the studio banter as well!
If there is a 3 disc set offered, will it include everything we've already bought on previous releases? Believe me, I want the unreleased stuff too, though small it may be, but I also don't care to buy everything I already have...yet again. And I'm sure to add a 3rd disc they would up the price. Paying close to $40 for a single or even a 2 disc set is pushing it now.
Why not a 2-disc with what's left unreleased? It might even fit on a single disc!
Or how about offer the FTD's digitally as well as the option of the physical cd? I've been listening to Elvis music a lot through Amazon streaming and have wished many times that I could listen to my FTD's the same way.
Not trying to start an argument, but am I missing something in this 3 cd FTD discussion?
There's quite enough left to be released thou
12 takes of Night Life (Including 5 complete takes, thou the rehearsal and BD's could be complete too or near complete)

18 takes of 'I Need Somebody To Lean On'' (Including 4 complete takes, and 4 BD's which could be complete / near complete)
5 takes of Do The Vega (including 1 complete take and a BD that could be near complete)
4 takes of ''Viva Las Vegas'' (including a BD that could be complete / near complete)
8 takes of Yellow Rose Of Texas/The Eyes Of Texas (including 1 complete take, 3 BD's and a rehearsal that could be complete / near complete)
7 takes of ''The Lady Loves Me'' (Including a complete take, 2 BD's and take 4 is unknown if it's a FS or complete)
14 takes of ''You're The Boss'' (Including 3 complete takes, 6 BD's and false starts)
2 takes of ''Today Tomorrow & Forever, record version'' including a take that includes Elvis doing live vocals to a faster tempo arrangement.
5 Takes of ''Santa Lucia'' that are all complete
10 takes of ''Today Tomorrow & Forever - Movie Vocal Overdub'' that includes a complete take 8, the rest is unknown except for the master they chose which is take 10.
outside of all that (this amounts to 95 unreleased takes
!), there are the movie versions that remain to be released, the ann margret tracks that remain to be released, and maybe thou i doubt they'll include them, several instrumentals.
