Bob Sillerman has nothing to do with the rubber ducks etc., it is the marketing wing of EPE. Sillerman, in my opinion, is the best thing ever to happen to the Elvis Legacy and will ensure that he is a viable proposition in twenty years time. You have obviously not seen his plans for the amelioration of the Graceland complex.

EPE and CKX need to adapt to the modern world and this is what Sillerman is doing. His next move must be the purchase of Elvis' Back Catalogue from Sony BMG. Then perhaps we will see Elvis' records back at the top of the charts in the U.S.A. where they belong. Somy BMG have proved a disappointment.Brian


- no problem if you dissagree of course ;-) and as you wrote - yes I am pesimistic in this. I really do not expect anything worth/good from EPE. And I do not care about Graceland too. They can burn it down or transform into psycho ward if they want...

Finally, I sincerely hope that this Sillerman will never get rights to Elvis catalogue, to his music legacy.

Hello,

Does anybody know whether the master and outtakes to "I Met Her Today" will be included on the "Pot Luck" FTD release? I realize that "I Met Her Today" first appeared on the "Elvis For Everyone" LP. I also am aware that "I Met Her Today" was recorded around the same time that the "Pot Luck" LP was recorded. Will I have to wait until FTD upgrades "Elvis For Everyone" to get the "I Met Her Today" outtakes?

Is this half empty or half full?

You're right, 4 unreleased shows in the last 9 months...wow, so long.

So is FTD going to avoid the "Elvis for everyone" album or will it be a "Tickle me" situation? I'm guessing all bonus tracks on the 1999 re-issue of "Pot luck" will be on this release as well? I'm looking forward to these releases :)

It's question if all takes will fit onto 2 CDs I think. Maybe POT LUCK FTD will be less complete than bootleg versions?

Sat Sep 01, 2007 1:27 pm

look at it like this. they found the outtakes for easy come easy go which is a paramount movie. ggg is too so they may have found the long lost ggg session reels. not just the over booted material.

Sat Sep 01, 2007 5:11 pm

I'll be fine with whatever is released on GGG. Just to have it in the deluxe 7 inch packaging and any sound improvment over the Double Features release. I hope Ernst doesn't let Lene anyuwhere near this (or Pot Luck).

Probably will. It would have fit better on Something for Everybody in place of Good Luck Charm, IMO.

How do you know this, and why don't you post the tracklist if you have it?

Ah yes, all those Stella Stevens songs.


And don't forget the Amigo's Mama sessions. And the Chinese Girls rehearsing their part on Earth Boy,

If the first 6 false starts from this are not released and in perfect sound I will not be purchasing this! :lol:

C'mon now, releasing Paradise, Hawaiian Style without the Donna Butterworth sessions was just a sin :roll: :twisted:

Just kidding!

Well I prefer to get the concerts but its all valid. I would like to see more effort made on the sound quite frankly. Some of the concerts have had great sound while others have had dull mono.

I would like to see all the binaural material remastered to true stereo and for the basic 50s monos still being churned out by BMG to be given some 'presence' for a change.

Maybe we are all getting too picky..........

Tue Sep 04, 2007 3:17 am

GREAT NEWS!!!

"Pot Luck" will complete the triumvirate of those wonderful early 60's albums.

"Girls, Girls, Girls" doesn't especially thrill me, but I'm glad it's coming out.

Then maybe FTD can get to work on the likes of "Jailhouse Rock", "King Creole", "Elvis' Christmas Album", "Blue Hawaii" and "Elvis Country". Yeah! :twisted:

All mono releases are that way because that is how they were captured at the soundboard. They cannot be made into stereo.

How can you make a binural recording "true" stereo? They will always be what they are, 99% with Elvis' vocal on one channel. With regards to 'presence', I presume you refer to top notch sound quality in which case I direct you to the various projects Kevan Budd has worked on, you will find your results there. Try "Elvis at Sun" as a starting point.

It would seem so. If only some were more informed before passing their criticisms.
