I don't see it as a clever move at all. Sure, many will order these CDs bonus tracks unknown, but these are the same people who order all FTD CDs (myself included). Some, however, will wait for the track listings and the reviews. That said, I hope you are right and that the real reason for withholding the track listings is the inclusion of something special. Both sessions (for "Raised On Rock" and "Easy Come, Easy Go") had backing tracks recorded for which Elvis reportedly never recorded vocals, so maybe one or two of these backing tracks had vocals recorded after all. If so (and I tend to doubt it), withholding the track listings might make sense. As a marketing move, however, it makes no sense.

Just a feeling, not based on facts.


I get the feeling that Ernst isn't releasing the track listings on ROR and Easy Come Easy Go because they will be incredibly underwhelming in terms of unreleased bits.

If Elvis had recorded Leave my woman alone or Colouer My Rainbows, it'd be released on a minstream cd.

I even doubt that ROR will contain the ROR song sesssion....

Why I sing all kinds tracklisting was announced?

This is utter nonsense. Just because I've increased my daily dosage of Lexapro, do not sleep at night, walk the floor and constantly check all the known websites that advertise FTD's, does not necessarily mean that I am tense or anticipating anything.

You should see our reaction once we've been listening for the first time to the weak, lackluster, almost pathetic and in any case below par performance of Elvis on Good Bad But Beautiful, Color My Rainbow and The Wonders You Perform! Seems Kevan Budd is burned out now too...

Dream on!! My guess is that a bonus on the "Raised on rock" CD will be the COMPLETE Elvis/Linda Thompson home recordings done near the same time. Some of these tracks were included in improved audio on "Made in Memphis".

It was recorded on ROR sessions and previously we got tiger man jam on Today FTD.

What's new, is that Amazon UK have put up "usually delivered in 4-6 weeks" on all 3 FTDs to be released today.

At least they were scheduled for July 9th at Amazon.

Now there's no date at all - meaning that they are released, or..?
