Update July 30, 2020

AND I LOVE YOU SO - Limited edition - Factory Pressed NTSC DVD set.

STAR has managed to get their hands on some incredible footage UNRELEASED worldwide in this quality!!
Other video releases containing amateur footage, usually are out of synch, to slow/fast and very VERY bad edits.

After "the good old days" when we had lots of TTWII and On Tour outtakes we did not get anything new for a long time... 

This will change now!   

Be sure to check out the link for the official trailer:  
https://youtu.be/inAZP92jFQk 

STAR delivers an almost complete show from 1976 with a running time of 56 minutes, including 17 COMPLETE performances.
No skips and bumps so you can enjoy the man as you should! 

Most of the footage with MATCHING audio has been taken from March 17, 1976 during his performance in Johnson City, backed up with "help" from other shows from the same tour.

This "Opening Night" show for 1976 shows Elvis in a very good mood and shape, lots of interaction is going on with the audience, and you are with them during this great show!
Due to the fact that not everything has been filmed, clever edits are used to keep the show going without annoying breaks and even some extra songs were used to make it work even better.
A great result of this has to be the March 22 version (St. Louis)  of "Let Me Be There" which has some amazing close ups!

But there's more! 

We get the very first live version of "Hurt' a rocking "Polk Salad Annie" and "Burning Love" and a rare live version of the title track "And I Love You So" where Elvis stops for a while since he doesn't approve the bands performance. You constantly feel the energy from Elvis working with his new band and the Crowd.

Next to the complete songs we also get all the band solos, hear Larry Londin for the first time during an Elvis show, see James Burton making an encore by Elvis' request, enjoy the Joe Guercio Orchestra doing a fine "Hail Hail Rock and Roll" . Yes it is all there and you can enjoy it soon!

As a bonus some rare tracks from the CBS tapes are included.

STRICTLY LIMITED TO 500 COPIES, MAKE SURE YOU'LL BE THERE AND DON'T MISS IT!!

Update July 15, 2020

A WHOLE LOTTA POWER GOING ON  - Deluxe Digipack factory pressed release.
Over 2,5 hours of incredible cuts!

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Elvis June/September recordings in Nashville, where other labels only re-re (re) release the same over and over CMT continues their "Power" series with this third instalment, after last year's "Ghetto Power" and the first release "Stax Power" this release had to be done and might be the best one yet!

Again the editing on this album makes all songs "blend in" so you will get the feeling as if you are in the actual session, with lots of rare snippets and surprises.

All tracks from the "Nashville 1970 Sessions" have been included in this 2 cd set, with clever spliced takes for a whole new experience.

Lots of works went into this and a lot of the tracks sound so different, you almost think it is all brand new!
Because the producers wanted something really new, and wanted to start rocking from scratch! They decided not to give you a chronicle order tracklist like the previous volumes.

Just listen to the incredible new spliced version of "Patch It Up" (10!! Splices) extended versions of "There Goes My Everything" and "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and clever edits of Undubbed tracks with final masters like "Little Cabin on the Hill" and "Heart of Rome" 

1970 has to be one of the best years for Elvis... you can hear it... you can SEE it, although we do agree with the "Never judge a book (cd or dvd) by it's cover" expression, seeing this cover makes you want it even more and it sure has "A Whole Lotta Power Going On!"

Update July 10, 2020

Flying In Twice

Our second new release in 2020 is titled "Flying In Twice" (EPC 2020-25A/B) and it brings us two fantastic shows from Cleveland, OH. The 3rd tour of 1975 was always rated as one of Elvis very best. All the concerts were excellent and the two Cleveland shows were no exception. Both the July 10th & 18th 1975 shows are previously unreleased on silver discs. July 10th show is of somewhat lesser sound quality but we have tried to improve the audio as much as possible. July 18th show was never before available in its complete form and in fine sound - until now!

Carefully restored and mastered with a focus on preserving the integrity of the original recording. Hence some minor hiss may be present; we felt it was more important to preserve the high frequencies and natural ambience of the original recordings. The sound is very good for an off line recordings - ask your CD dealer for a small audio sample! This 2CD is packaged in a nicely designed double digipack with two local press reviews. All images used for the artwork were taken in Cleveland, OH, July 10th & 18th, 1975.

SPINOUT ON THE SPEEDWAY  
Cardsleeve edition

This series needs no further introducion.

This time the producers decided to combine two movies for one release, since the original movie soundtracks were so short in running time.
Not only are most tracks "spliced" but a lot are also extended with different parts so most tracks sound very different.

If you own the previous releases like "Kissin Cousins, Viva Las Vegas and Fun in Acapulco" you will know what to expect

As Always you will get a lot af value in this release since almost all sounds very different then usual without using fake remixes or overdubbs

So sit back and relax, and leave the driving to Elvis!

Adam and Evil - Alternate Master

Combined with some home recordings and informal tracks the set has just the right combination to be very different compared to other releases.

Update May 4, 2020

Houston, I’m back again  SPECIAL DELUXE COMBO  LP Double Set &CD

VV Special Product  May 2020

To be released soon (Middle of May) from the "VV" label for the first time in vinyl, with both of the shows of Houston 04th & 05th of June 1975 and the ambiance recording of the complete second Houston show included as a bonus. 
This special product will be the follow up of the previous successful  See You Huntsville published by VV on October 2019.

As always the VV attitude is to present Elvis at the peak of his possibility and without a doubt, this double set presents Elvis still at his best. After shedding some extra weight the man is ready to face his second tour of 1975. The June 1975 tour  due to the RCA idea to record a live album gives us some incredible soundboard tapes, unfortunately, all more or less incomplete. But at the same time, it has given us the possibilities after a light editing and a remastering process to use a single vinyl for each Houston concert.

At the same time we are glad to include as bonus CD an unreleased Ambiance Recording of the complete concert of the second day in Houston. The sound is decent: if you want to live the atmosphere of an Elvis concert in 2020 this is the right tape. We can guarantee that Elvis was greeted with incredible enthusiasm; the popularity in the live scene in the middle of 1975 is at its maximum level.

The tour presents Elvis still at the top of his rocker possibility, in spite of his weight. He looks great in his impressive new jumpsuits and he delivers great shows with a great version of the up-tempo rockers Burning Love and his last single T.R.O.U.B.L.E. The enthusiasm is so great sometimes on the ambiance tape the screaming is louder than the music and in one occasion he accepts even a song request like “Trying To Get To you”, a rarity for the tour. The sound is good for an ambient recording, a dynamic tape with a great definition of the background music and for sure you can live the atmosphere of an Elvis concert in the seventies. We hope you can enjoy the final result.

„Still Classy In Omaha“ - VERVE
Another release by Verve which shows how good soundboards can sound, if done properly. When FTD released many years ago the April 22, 1976 in Omaha almost everyone was disappointed about the mix, which had the background singers way, way up in front. It sounded terrible and it’s until today one of the worst releases by the collector’s label.
It was always said that you can’t do anything about the soundpicture, as the soundboard is what it is, but that’s wrong. It is possible to correct the soundpicture, which we did and now you can listen to a concert and find out why the press stated about Presley’s concert on the next day: „Still classy as a caddy!“ The background singers are mixed properly in the background and Elvis’ talent and charisma shines over it all. And a fine concert it was!

"Bossa Nova Baby" rocks like never before due to the use of 5 different takes!
 "I Think I'm Gonna Like It Here" and "Bullfighter" include record and movie version, both unreleased in this format!

With Renewed Vigour

Our first release in 2020 is titled “WITH RENEWED VIGOUR”. It was the1st tour of 1976 and some of Elvis' key musicians were replaced for financial issues. Unexpectedly, the result was a surprisingly fresh sound, with keyboards and drums prominent. During this rather short tour, Elvis performed 8 solid and entertaining shows in 4 cities.

The Charlotte, March 20th, 1976, 2:30pm show was previouslyreleased from an incomplete and inferior source by "J. R. Productions" label in 1994 ("Steamrollin' Charlotte" CD). The sound was hissy, distant and badly muffled on few opening tracks. We have found a completely new source; the original tape was recorded by a well-known American fan, using back then an excellent quality Sony TC-55 cassette recorder.For the first time we present this great concert in complete form and in its best possible sound quality!

As usual, this release is presented in a de-lux 6-panel digipak with a collection of photos taken in Charlotte, March 20th, 1976 2:30pm and with great liner notes written by the fan who taped the show! Also included is great 16-page booklet!

If you have enjoyed our previous March'76 release "RIPPIN' IT IN CINCINNATI" (Straight Arrow Special Products SA/SP 2018-51-02), we bet you will love this one too. The sound is even better, fresher and ambient. .

Tracklist:
01. Introduction: Also Sprach Zarathustra - 02. C. C. Rider - 03. I Got A Woman/Amen - 04. Love Me - 05. Let Me Be There - 06. You Gave Me A Mountain - 07. Steamroller Blues - 08.

Lonesome August Nights Out Now

SR LP&2CD Special Product February 2020 To be released in the early February, Lonesome August Nights (SR Records) will focus on Elvis’ August 1972 Las Vegas season, featuring the dinner&midnight show from August 18th, 1972, previously unreleased and taken directly from the original high-quality tapes.

The

August 18 Midnight Show was previously released on vinyl format in the SR boxed edition of Not too Sweet, here for the first time will be released on CD format completely remastered and in superior sound.

The SR attitude is to present Elvis at the peak of his possibility and without any doubt Elvis’ second week in Vegas August season presents him at the top of his possibilities, delivering great shows. If Rock is an attitude, then the man has it. The performances are terrific, rough and sharp.

On August 18th on the backstage just before to go on the stage The Colonel informed Elvis that his Lawyer had delivered the application for a divorce on the Los Angeles Superior Court... Elvis's answer was a simple nod with the head and two unbelievable SHOWS.

Elvis at least at the begin seems to enjoy this newfound freedom delivering an unbelievable last great Las Vegas season.

Elvis sings and looks magnificent on the stage is iperactive and He performs all the songs to the maximum of his possibilities, presenting all the best of his repertoire from the previous two years combined with the last 1972 new autobiografical song ranging in all musical genres as only he can do.

We are happy to be able to associate great performance with great audio quality in order to be able to obtain a result that you can enjoy too.

The ambiance tapes are both of very good quality, as you can appreciate both Elvis and the band and at the same time you can feel and live the live atmosphere of the intimate Las Vegas Showroom.

The shows has already said are great, we have some a few variations in the songs, this for sure make more interesting the listen of both the shows, See See Rider is back as opener song and the show now consist in a solid collection of great quality songs all well performed . Two new addictions at the repertoire : What Now My Love and My Way . Due to Elvis’ moment two sentimental&life songs no randomly chosen. However talking about best song we like to say that the rockin’ side is still present in Elvis and Polk Salad Annie never sounded better: both Elvis and the band are pushing strong with a great job of Jerry Scheff bass guitar.

This new SR special Product will be housed in a deluxe 300 grams single sleeve that includes together the 180 grams vinyl, two Bonus CD and bonus high glossy 300 grams 30x30 cm Art Card both sides printed.

Time Is Slipping Away

Our first new release in 2020 is titled "TIME IS SLIPPING AWAY" (EPC 2020-24) and it brings us the Norman, OK, March 25, 1977 show. The title is inspired by the fact that Elvis sings "Funny How Time Slips Away" very unusually as the 3rd song.
The 2nd tour of 1977 was cut short due to Elvis illness, but some of the concerts were surprisingly good, especially the Abilene show on March 27th. In Norman, Elvis performs two solid and entertaining shows. Among the concert highlights are ”You Gave Me A Mountain“, ”Little Sister”, ”My Way”, “Fever“ and ”Hurt”. As the local press wrote, Elvis "The King" Presley delights audience in Lloyd Noble Arena. Note: After the February 1977 tour, David Briggs was replaced by Bobby Ogdin on electric piano and clavinet.
The audio was mastered from an original audience recorded cassette tape recorded by a British fan. The sound is a rich and ambient - ask for samples!
This CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipack with local press review. All images used for the artwork were taken on March 25th, 1977 and they are previously unpublished!

01. Also Sprach Zarathustra (2001 Theme) - 02. C. C. Rider - 03. Medley: I Got A Woman / Amen - 04. Funny How Time Slips Away - 05. If You Love Me (Let Me Know) - 06. You Gave Me A Mountain - 07.

SOUTHBOUND
LUXOR LP 4931/3
Macon Coliseum, Macon Georgia : August 31, 1976
Now available on vinyl: SOUTHBOUND, originally released in 1998 and featuring the August 31 1976 show from Macon Georgia. The 7th tour of 1976 is not known as being the best tour in Elvis' career. During this particular show Elvis appeared demotivated. He was definitely struggling to get to the end of this engagement. Most likely the crowd never even noticed this as they go wild like always as Elvis delivered a mediocre performance.
Still, it’s a part of Elvis’ career that deserves a release on vinyl.
22 years after the original CD release it is time for a high quality re-release of this performance. For the very first time this show is now available on a high quality double vinyl set.  
The show is newly remastered and updated in the best way possible! This release is very limited and is available in RED or BLUE vinyl presented in a gatefold sleeve. And of course the show is included on CD too.
For now this is the last reissue in the Luxor classic reissue series.
But………... be ready for some nice surprises in the near future.
Get it while you can and add this awesome LUXOR product to your collection.

40 GREATEST!
2 CD SET
The legendary PINK ALBUM is now available on a deluxe double compact disc set.
Elvis' 40 Greatest, originally released (on Arcade) in 1974 and UK's biggest-selling album over the Christmas period of that year, but along with all albums on K-tel, Ronco and Arcade, it was ineligible for the UK Albums Chart until 1975 because it was felt that heavy TV advertising and low pricing distorted the charts. It finally reached number one on the UK Albums Chart in 1977, and became the 10th best-selling album of the 1970s in the UK. It was originally pressed with a brown cover and doctored image of Elvis.
The 1978 re-release, was released simultaneously on black vinyl and a more expensive pink vinyl edition. The pink vinyl sold a stagger 250.000 copies MORE than the black vinyl. It is in fact one of the best selling Elvis compilation albums of all time.
Both the original 1974 Arcade and the 1978 pink RCA re-release were, despite its success, never released on compact disc.
But the waiting is over: housed in a stunning 6 panel digipack, Elvis' 40 GREATEST contains the 40 original masters from the 1978 album + as very special bonus tracks are added the original tracks from the 1983 UK edition of the "I WAS THE ONE" album, that contained overdubbed live and studio recordings from the 1950s and early 1960s. These recordings have never been released officially on compact disc.

WORK IN PROGRESS
THE GUITAR MAN ALBUM SESSIONS VOLUME 1         2 CD

In 1980 Felton Jarvis, Elvis' record producer for the last decade came to the remarkable idea to freshen up some of Elvis' recordings. The idea was to add totally new backing tracks to Elvis' voice. This resulted in the 1981 record release of "Guitar Man".
You hate it or you love it is probably the right thing to say about the album.
Felton was convinced Elvis would have loved it. The original album contained 10 songs (which all can be heard in a wonderful newly remastered sound quality on this new 2 CD set). But Felton worked on a bunch of other songs to see if they would suit the project.
This special 2 CD set contains many of those unreleased versions that never made it to the record. Also included are some unreleased unfinished versions of tracks that did make it to the final GUITAR MAN album.
The title track "Guitar Man" written and first performed by Jerry Reed was obviously one of the tracks that had to end up on the album. Jerry Reed was part of the original recording by Elvis in 1967 and now Jerry Reed was back in the studio with Felton Jarvis to work on the new title track for the 1981 re-release. Besides the guitar work he also recorded a "duet" version of the song. This version never made it to the album, but it probably should have. Felton finished this track most likely for his own pleasure or for Jerry Reed and it is one of the many highlights of this set. This is just an example of one of the many surprises you will find on this CD set. And all in a wonderful sound quality. 
This wonderful 2 CD set is full of unreleased tracks like : Blue eyes crying in the rain, The fool, Susan when she tried, Help me, Funny how time slips away and many many more. 
Felton Jarvis sadly passed away early January 1981 even before the album came out.

Lonesome August Nights

SR LP&2CD Special Product February 2020 To be released in the early February, Lonesome August Nights (SR Records) will focus on Elvis’ August 1972 Las Vegas season, featuring the dinner&midnight show from August 18th, 1972, previously unreleased and taken directly from the original high-quality tapes.

The

August 18 Midnight Show was previously released on vinyl format in the SR boxed edition of Not too Sweet, here for the first time will be released on CD format completely remastered and in superior sound.

The SR attitude is to present Elvis at the peak of his possibility and without any doubt Elvis’ second week in Vegas August season presents him at the top of his possibilities, delivering great shows. If Rock is an attitude, then the man has it. The performances are terrific, rough and sharp.

On August 18th on the backstage just before to go on the stage The Colonel informed Elvis that his Lawyer had delivered the application for a divorce on the Los Angeles Superior Court... Elvis's answer was a simple nod with the head and two unbelievable SHOWS.

Elvis at least at the begin seems to enjoy this newfound freedom delivering an unbelievable last great Las Vegas season.

Elvis sings and looks magnificent on the stage is iperactive and He performs all the songs to the maximum of his possibilities, presenting all the best of his repertoire from the previous two years combined with the last 1972 new autobiografical song ranging in all musical genres as only he can do.

We are happy to be able to associate great performance with great audio quality in order to be able to obtain a result that you can enjoy too.

The ambiance tapes are both of very good quality, as you can appreciate both Elvis and the band and at the same time you can feel and live the live atmosphere of the intimate Las Vegas Showroom.

The shows has already said are great, we have some a few variations in the songs, this for sure make more interesting the listen of both the shows, See See Rider is back as opener song and the show now consist in a solid collection of great quality songs all well performed . Two new addictions at the repertoire : What Now My Love and My Way . Due to Elvis’ moment two sentimental&life songs no randomly chosen. However talking about best song we like to say that the rockin’ side is still present in Elvis and Polk Salad Annie never sounded better: both Elvis and the band are pushing strong with a great job of Jerry Cheff bass guitar.

This new SR special Product will be housed in a deluxe 300 grams single sleeve that includes together the 180 grams vinyl, two Bonus CD and bonus high glossy 300 grams 30x30 cm Art Card both sides printed.

In order to have a special collector’s item, the 400 copies will be presented with FOUR different vinyl color VARIATIONS. All the copies will come with Glossy Sticker hand-numbered and individually sealed and Please remember!! This is a LIMITED HAND NUMBERED set of 400 COPIES.

 STAR PRESENTS:

The ELVIS Movie
Starring Kurt Russel with the soundtrack of Elvis Presley!

FACTORY PRESSED DUAL LAYER DVD - PAL

It's the same story but the performances have made an incredible upgrade!

STAR keeps surprising fans worldwide, this time they have chosen something "risky" but they deliver once more!

They have replaced Ronnie MdDowell's soundtrack with the only soundtrack that should have been there in the first place ELVIS' s

Lots more music is included and the whole film has a more modern touch then before and can now compete with blockbusters like  "Walk the Line" and 
"Great Balls of Fire" 

Rare live versions and outtakes were handpicked to find the best matching songs for the scenes. 

Kurt Russels "playbacking" looks much more natural and real then before, and how cool it is to hear the actual radio broadcast (Dewey Philips) from the time when "That's All Right" was first played on the air, or to hear  "The Blackwood Brothers" at the funeral of Elvis his mother Gladys

Vegas Throat

CMT returnes with an incredible follow up to last years "I'm Evil" 

Elvis Presley - "Vegas Throat" 
Live chronicles volume two

Presented in a six panel digipack, limited to 500 copies, this one will be sold out before Christmas!

Every Elvis fan of course will know that this year marked the 50th anniversary of Elvis returning to the stage.
An amazing 11 disc boxset was released and although it is a must, it is most likely it will be played often because most shows are pretty much the same as the one before.

CMT/STAR have made an outstanding "Ultimate" release which includes ALL the songs (29 tracks!)  from the shows in ONE performance!

Lots of time and effort went into the editing and it sounds like one complete show.

This is the one you will be playing over and over, this is why we are Elvis fans; to enjoy his music! 

"Good evening ladies and gentlemen, this is my first live appearance in nine years. 
It is very dry in Las Vegas and singers have what they call a "Vegas Throat"

Update November 20, 2019

Firing On All Cylinders

Between 2007 and 2017, Straight Arrow released no less than 10 concerts from Elvis' 1972 Summer Festival, on 8 individual releases - More than any other label. In recent times we've also released a lot of stuff from the final years, but last year we made the commitment to focus on the 1969 - 1972 period, arguably his best concert years. Recently we were able to obtain two excellent vintage tapes from Elvis' 1972 Summer Season, and it is with some pride that we now present these.
This release is titled "FIRING ON ALL CYLINDERS" (SA/SP 2019-60-02)… and Elvis truly did during this engagement. The first show is from August 7th, 1972 and this is the show where he performed "Steamroller Blues" for the first time. The second show is Closing Night from September 4th, and it can easily be called the best show of the entire season. It's a nice surprise that we are able to include some of the warm-up acts, including Jackie Kahanes's set, as well as the Sweet Inspiration set. These ladies were smoking H - O - T, and it's easy to hear why they were considered to me amongst the best female soul groups in the business. As you probably know, they used to work together with Aretha, and The Sweet Inspirations' performance of her hits is one of the highlights on this disc.  
We believe that the inclusion of the opening acts will give you a unique perspective of what it was like to experience one of Elvis' Las Vegas concerts during this period in time.
The August 7th, 1972 Midnight Show is a previously unreleased concert, taken from a newly obtained original audience recorded tape in surprisingly good quality. This specific tape has not been available previously. There is another recording of this show in circulation on CDR, but the sound quality of that one is poor.
The September 4th, 1972 Closing show was released by some no-name label back in 2005, from an incomplete source and in very hissy sound ("Walk That Lonesome Road" CD - with the missing song being "A Big Hunk O'Love"). We have found an alternate source, an original tape which includes the main part of the pre-program by The Sweet Inspirations as well as comedian Jackie Kahane. For the first time we present this great closing show in its complete form, and in the best possible sound quality!
This release is presented in a de-luxe 8-panel digipak, with a collection of photos taken in Las Vegas, NV, on August 8th, 1972 (Dinner), September 3rd, 1972 (3am) and September 4th, 1972 Closing shows.
Tracklist:

CD1 (07.08.1972 M/S): 01. Opening Vamp / C. C. Rider - 02. Proud Mary - 03. Until It's Time For You To Go - 04. You Don't Have To Say You Love Me - 05. You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin' - 06.

This release is expected very soon. In the meantime, you may ask your local dealer for audio samples to judge for yourself! It's a new "STRAIGHT ARROW", so you know what to expect. Every second of these concerts was digitally restored, every click or disturbing clap in quiet songs manually removed, every drop-out or damaged place fixed to achieve optimal listening pleasure. The next "STRAIGHT ARROW" releases in early 2020 will be excellent shows from 1971, 1972 and 1974, so stay tuned!


Update November 19, 2019

Two New EP Collectors Releases

Expected soon from the E. P. Collector label are two exciting new CD releases!

LOVE MY TEDDY BEAR TENDER

Recorded live at the International Hotel, Las Vegas, NV, September 3rd, 1971, Dinner show While some of Elvis import labels are just re-releasing previously issued and repackaged stuff, the always reliable E. P. Collector label is always looking for something new to release. We are always reaching out to people in order to find new material, and if it's interesting, we will purchase it, even if the sound is not studio perfect. In recent months we were in touch with a couple of fans who recorded a number of interesting concerts, which now enables us to release two more surprises.

The first new release is titled "LOVE MY TEDDY BEAR TENDER" (EPC 2019-22) and it brings us the Las Vegas, September 3rd, 1971 Dinner show. You'll have to forgive us for the somewhat clumsy title, but maybe you'll understand when we tell you that it contains a sensational concert rarity! During this concert, he sings "Love Me Tender" to the tune of "Teddy Bear"!! He only did this once, during this concert, and now for the first time you can hear this amazing discovery!!! Who would think that we would still be getting surprises like this in 2019?! Concert recordings from '71 are hard to come by these days, especially unreleased ones. During this season, Elvis was on fire, and his setlist was varied and strong. Near the end of the engagement, his shows were a bit looser, and this one is a real delight. This concert recording is a completely new show, even for the hardcore fans. The audio was mastered from an original audience recorded cassette tape. This CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipack with a press review and a collection of images taken in Las Vegas, NV, in August/September 1971.

Tracklist:
01. Orchestra Intro - 02. Also Sprach Zarathustra (2001 Theme) - 03. That’s All Right - 04. I Got A Woman - 05. Proud Mary - 06. Sweet Caroline - 07. Polk Salad Annie - 08. Instrumental Intermezzo - 09. Johnny B. Goode - 10. It's Impossible (with false start) - 11. Love Me - 12. Medley: Blue Suede Shoes / Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On - 13. Heartbreak Hotel - 14. Love Me Tender sung to Teddy Bear tune - 15. Medley: Teddy Bear / Don't Be Cruel - 16. Hound Dog - 17. Suspicious Minds - 18. Band Introductions - 19. I'm Leavin' - 20. Lawdy Miss Clawdy - 21. Can't Help Falling In Love (with false start) - 22. Closing Vamp.


KNOXVILLE KNOCKOUT

Recorded live at the UOT Stokely Arena, Knoxville, TN, April 8, 1972 Evening show

Our second new CD is titled "KNOXVILLE KNOCKOUT" (EPC 2019-23). Just as our first release, the Knoxville, TN, April 8, 1972 8:30 pm evening show is previously unreleased and moreover, it is completely a new show for all Elvis die-hard fans: again, never before in circulation, in any form! Interestingly enough, RCA was there to record, but their tape recorder malfunctioned. Now you can finally hear what RCA tried to record!!
This concert is taken from a recently discovered original audience recorded cassette tape. Unfortunately, "An American Trilogy" is incomplete, and it is possible that there's is one song missing, just before the "Can't Help Falling In Love" finale.
As we've come to expect from the April '72 shows, Elvis is in excellent form. And what a rare treat to finally get an audience recorded tape from this highly regarded tour! Elvis is firing on all cylinders. He knocks "How Great Thou Art" out of the ballpark. Wow, just wow!!
As usual, this CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipack with excerpts from a local press review and a collection of images taken on tour in April, 1972, including a couple of real, very rare Knoxville show shots.
Tracklist:

01. Also Sprach Zarathustra (2001 Theme) - 02. C. C. Rider - 03. Proud Mary - 04. Never Been To Spain - 05. You Gave Me A Mountain - 06. Until It's Time For You To Go - 07. Polk Salad Annie - 08. Love Me - 09. All Shook Up - 10. Medley: Teddy Bear / Don't Be Cruel - 11. Hound Dog - 12. Love Me Tender (with break) - 13. How Great Thou Art - 14. I Can't Stop Loving You (with reprise) - 15. For The Good Times - 16. Suspicious Minds - 17. Band Introductions - 18. An American Trilogy (incomplete) - 19. Can't Help Falling In Love - 20. Closing Vamp.

MY, IT’S BEEN A LONG LONG TIME
LUXOR LP 4931/2
Greensboro Coliseum, June 30 1976

Now available on vinyl: MY ITS BEEN A LONG LONG TIME, originally released in 1998 and featuring probably the best show of (already) the 5th tour of 1976. In total Elvis rocked the Greensboro Coliseum 5 times. Obviously most memorable is the April 14 1972 performance which is considered to be one of his best performances. But more than 4 years later Elvis still delivered a high quality show in Greensboro. (And the crowd goes wild!!!)

21 years after the original cd release it is time for a high quality re-release of this fantastic performance. For the very first time this show is now available on a high quality double vinyl set.

Although the original release was way above the standard soundboard sound quality, the show is newly remastered and updated in the best way possible! And it sounds amazing! This release is very limited and is available in RED or BLUE vinyl presented in a gatefold sleeve. And of course the show is included on cd too. Get it while you can and add this awesome LUXOR product to your collection.

Update November 1, 2019

First In Line Vol. 2

MxF LP&2CD Special Product November   2019

To be released in the middle of November, First In Line Vol.2 (MxF Records) will focus on Elvis’ January&February 1974 Vegas season, featuring the midnight show from January 30th and the evening show from February 08th, 1974, both the shows previously unreleased and taken directly from the original ambiance high-quality tape.

Elvis’ tolerance for Vegas has reached its limit in the previous august 1973 season so after the deserved rest of 5 months, Elvis is back in Las Vegas Hilton. According to the new contract, He will perform twice a year, but only two weeks at a time rather than the previous four. The repertoire was reduced compared to the previous season to 15/20 songs with three new additions: Help me, Spanish Eyes and the popular Let Me Be There. The choice of songs in the different shows varied little, but due the 9 days of the distance of the two shows here presented we have some a few variations in the songs, this for sure make more interesting the listen of both the shows. .

Update November 1, 2019

Nashville Marathon Volume 2

MTP is back with some amazing new releases!

We all remember the "good old days" when FTD released their first releases like
"The Jungle Room Sessions", "Fame and Fortune" and "Out in Hollywood".

Those cds were in our players for weeks, due to all the unreleased stuff, great sound quality and last but not least the fact there were a lot of complete outtakes never heard before.

After a while, although the releases were still fantastic, we got more and more cds with lots of outtakes from the same songs, great for collecting, but listening pleasure was a bit less fun...

The label continues their series with two releases which will be in your player for weeks, and are again "Meant to be Played"

THE NASHVILLE MARATHON VOLUME 2

This time we get the 1971 sessions in the same treatment as the first volume, some hard to find tracks and outtakes are included as well as some nice surprises and edits such as the extended version of "Lady Madonna" which rocks like never before. 
Another highlight is the new "Don't Think Twice It's Allright" edit of take 2 recorded on May 17th.

Presented in deluxe digipack

OUT IN HOLLYWOOD VOLUME 3 
Hard to find outtakes and new edits, presented in a deluxe digipack edition.  

Another collection of 22 great songs, most are hard to find, or released on cds where you get so many takes of the same song, you probably only have heard them once, or more likely... never. Also included are some cool UNRELEASED tracks like "Poor Boy" which is an alternate master and "Stay Away" which has the harmonica intro followed by the master take, the sound is much better then the actual movie version.

VIVA LAS VEGAS - SPLICED TAKES SPECIAL

RELEASE DATE: SEPTEMBER 10

CMT is proud to present their latest addition to this great series.
This time they choose to do the "fan favorite" "Viva Las Vegas" including 15 (!) unreleased new spliced takes!

All songs from the movie are included, so besides the Elvis tracks, you also get the Ann Margret Songs and "The Climb" performed by George McFadden
One of the highlight probably is the "longer" version of "If You Think..."  it has been created using 8 splices and includes multiple sax solo's
"Do the Vega" has been giving an extra "touch" by repeating the "Shake like a son...."  portion which makes it sound more up to date and modern.
"Santa Lucia" has a longer intro and extra instrumental break. The title track also sound very different due to the use of 3 takes and 4 splices.
As always you get a lot of value in these releases, since almost everything sounds very different then usual without fake remixes.

"If you think you don't need this release.... then baby you're wrong!

Friday Night Lights

Our new release is titled "FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS" (SA/SP 2019-59-02). "STRAIGHT ARROW" label is continuing to release early 70s concerts and this new release is a direct follow-up to our July release called "KENTUCKY RAIN" (SA/SP 2019-57-02).
The Las Vegas, February 20th, 1970 Dinner show was previously released by the "SR" label in 2015 from an inferior, degraded copying and basically unlistenable source. The show was incomplete with cuts and running way too slow).
Now you have a chance to listen to this fantastic concert in the best possible quality, for the first time.
The Las Vegas, February 20th, 1970 Midnight show is previously unreleased and it was never available in good quality and in complete form - until now! It is one of greatest Elvis shows ever with “Polk Salad Annie” and “Suspicious Minds” being reprised!!
We decided to add 5 bonus tracks, recorded during the February 21st, 1970 Dinner show. These tracks were never available in decent sound quality either. This recording includes the one-liner of the Pat Boone hit "When the Swallows Come Back to Capistrano." Unfortunately, no more tracks from this concert were taped.
All material (incl. the bonus tracks) presented on this release was recorded by same person. This release is presented in a de-luxe 8-panel digipak, with a collection of photos taken in Las Vegas, NV, February 1970 as well as a press review.
Tracklist:
CD1 (20.02.1970 D/S)
01. Orchestra Intro (part) - 02. Opening Vamp (incomplete) / All Shook Up - 03. I Got A Woman - 04. Long Tall Sally - 05. Don't Cry Daddy - 06. Hound Dog - 07. Love Me Tender (with false start) - 08. Kentucky Rain - 09. Let It Be Me (with false start) - 10. I Can't Stop Loving You - 11. Walk A Mile in My Shoes / In the Ghetto - 12. Sweet Caroline - 13. Polk Salad Annie - 14. Dialogue - 15. Introductions of singers, musicians, orchestra - 16. Suspicious Minds - 17. Can't Help Falling in Love.

CD2 (20.02.1970 M/S)
01. Orchestra Intro - 02. Opening Vamp - 03. All Shook Up - 04. I Got A Woman - 05. Long Tall Sally (with false start) - 06. Don't Cry Daddy - 07. Hound Dog - 08. Love Me Tender (with false start) - 09. Kentucky Rain (with false start) - 10. Let It Be Me - 11. I Can't Stop Loving You - 12. Walk A Mile in My Shoes / In the Ghetto - 13. Sweet Caroline - 14. Polk Salad Annie (with reprise) - 15. Introductions of singers, musicians, orchestra - 16. Suspicious Minds (with reprise) - 17. Can't Help Falling in Love.
Bonus (21.02.1970 D/S):
18. All Shook Up (incomplete) - 19. I Got A Woman - 20. When the Swallows Come Back to Capistrano (one line) - 21. Long Tall Sally - 22. Don't Cry Daddy.
This release is expected very soon. In the meantime you may ask your local dealer for audio samples to judge for yourself! It's a new "STRAIGHT ARROW", so you know what to expect, anyway! Every second of these concerts was digitally restored, every click or disturbing clap in quiet songs manually removed, every drop-out or damaged place fixed to achieve optimal listening pleasure. Next "STRAIGHT ARROW" releases will be 1971/1972 shows, so stay tuned!

Green peppers, Onions And Catfish

Our first new release is titled "GREEN PEPPERS, ONIONS AND CATFISH" (EPC 2019-21). 
Now, while some of Elvis import labels are just repackaging and re-releasing old stuff, E. P. Collector label is coming with another surprise! The Norfolk, July 20th, 1975 8:30pm show is previously unreleased and it was never before available in complete form and in solid quality! There is an old CDR in circuit of absolutely horrible sound and moreover, it's missing the last couple of songs. Now is a good time to throw this one into garbage can and grab the ultimate version! 
As almost every fan knows, Elvis' July ’75 tour is rated as one of the best Elvis tours ever. The shows were longer and the playlists variable. Vocally, Elvis was in TOP shape. Two dynamic, rocking shows in Norfolk are no exception. Yes there was the (in) famous so called “catfish” incident - but, as usual, the whole story was exaggerated. Among the highlights there are „The Wonder Of You,” „Polk Salad Annie,” „ T-R-O-U-B-L-E,” „How Great Thou Art,” and „It’s Now Or Never.”  One song stands out - one of the very last performances of Chuck Berry’s great „Promised Land.” 
This concert is taken from a recently found first generation copy of an original audience recorded cassette tape, recorded by a well known American fan. You may ask your supplier for samples.
This CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipack with collection of images taken by Len Leech in Norfolk, VA, 1975 E/S. It’s our first 1975 release and we hope to bring you more!
Tracklist:
01. Also Sprach Zarathustra (2001 Theme) - 02. C. C. Rider - 03. medley: I Got A Woman / Amen - 04. "Catfish incident" - 05. Love Me - 06. If You Love Me (Let Me Know) - 07. Love Me Tender - 08. All Shook Up - 09. medley: Teddy Bear / Don't Be Cruel - 10. Hound Dog - 11. The Wonder Of You - 12. Polk Salad Annie - 13. Band Introductions - 14. Johnny B. Goode (James Burton) - 15. Drum Solo (Ronnie Tutt) - 16. Bass Solo (Blues - Jerry Scheff) - 17. Piano Solo (Glen D. Hardin) - 18. School Day - 19. T-R-O-U-B-L-E - 20. Why Me Lord? - 21. How Great Thou Art (with reprise) - 22. Let Me Be There - 23. Funny How Time Slips Away (with reprise) - 24. Little Darlin' - 25. medley: Mystery Train / Tiger Man - 26. It's Now Or Never - 27. Promised Land - 28. Can't Help Falling In Love - 29. Closing Vamp.

Softly As I Leave You

Our second new CD is titled "SOFTLY AS I LEAVE YOU" (EPC 2019-22).
The Las Vegas, August 23rd, 1974 Dinner show is previously unreleased. This concert is taken from an early generation copy of an original audience recorded cassette tape which was never in circulation! Sound is excellent for an off - line source.  Unfortunately, the last 3 songs were not recorded. Instead of using a very poor sounding secondary source of the same show (missing the last song "Can't Help Falling In Love," anyway), we have decided to add same songs from the August 23rd, 1974 Midnight show tape which is of similar quality as the August 23rd, 1974 Dinner show. As usual, you may ask your supplier for samples.
The playlist is rather typical for August ’74 shows. Among the concert highlights, there are „It's Midnight,“ ”I'm Leavin',” of course ”Softly, As I Leave You”, a great version of “You Gave Me A Mountain” and a funky ”If You Talk In Your Sleep.”
This CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipack with a collection of great images taken during the August/September 1974 concerts.
If you've enjoyed our previous August 1974 release called „A SONG FOR SHEILA,“ then you are sure to enjoy our forthcoming one even more!
Tracklist:
01. Also Sprach Zarathustra - 02. C. C. Rider - 03. medley: I Got A Woman / Amen - 04. Love Me - 05. If You Love Me (Let Me Know) - 06. It's Midnight - 07. Big Boss Man - 08. Fever - 09. Love Me Tender - 10. All Shook Up - 11. The Wonder Of You - 12. I'm Leavin' - 13. Softly, As I Leave You - 14. Hound Dog - 15. You Gave Me A Mountain (with reprise) - 16. Polk Salad Annie - 17. Band Introductions - 18. If You Talk In Your Sleep - 19. Why Me Lord - 20. medley: Teddy Bear / Don't Be Cruel - 21. Hawaiian Wedding Song - 22. Let Me Be There (with reprise) - 23. Elvis' monologue about rings - 24. Can't Help Falling In Love - 25. Closing Vamp.
Tracks 21.-25. taken from August 23rd, 1974 Midnight show.

Update August 27, 2019

Singer Presents Elvis

This set was first released in 2011 and sold out immediately, mainly because of the many completely unreleased tracks. Most of these tracks are still only available on this set and we’ve got a lot of request for this CD. So we decided to make a low budget version and give everyone the possibility to own these recording on the label that made them available. As with all Venus releases all tracks are uncut and the sound is top notch!

FROM SUNSET BOULEVARD TO PARADISE ROAD
DAE LP 006/7
4LP + 4CD set.
Vinyl colour: WHITE, PURPLE and BLUE

August 1974 is a remarkable period in Elvis’ career. A new Vegas engagement was ahead of him and Elvis and his loyal musicians had plans for a new and refreshing show, which they were going to perform for a two week period. Probably to avoid getting bored from doing the same year in and year out, they went to rehearse some new songs to create the new setlist.
Fortunately the rehearsal from August 16 was recorded on a 2 track cassette deck and is presented here in its ultimate form. Originally released way back in 1995 it was time for an update. Although the rehearsal and the show have been re-released by several other labels, they were simply badly remastered copies of the original release. Sometimes even being incomplete and sounding very “thin” due to the high level of noise reduction and compression. An exception must be made for some tracks in original binaural sound that were released some years back. The original master tape has been recorded in binaural but quality wise it left a lot to desire. In 1995 a straight copy of the master tape was used to create a more balanced mix of this remarkable recording. For this re-release an early “work in progress” version is used which contains less reverb than the version originally released. The recording has been painstakingly restored, resulting in what we believe to be the ultimate sounding and most complete outing of this remarkable rehearsal and the show.
Following the rehearsal, we present the opening night show of the engagement rehearsed for.
During the opening night Also Sprach Zarathustra and See See Rider were replaced by Big Boss Man and were followed byProud Mary and Down In The Alley. Most likely the audience was very surprised by the new setlist. Remarkably enough the next night the show went back to (pretty much) normal. Songs like Down In The AlleyGood Time Charlie’s Got The Blues,Never Been To Spain and My Baby Left Me were not played again during this engagement. So without any doubt the opening night concert is one of his most unique shows. The reason for the abrupt ending of the new refreshing setlist can only be guessed, but most likely Elvis fell out of his comfort zone and the audience was more pleased with the good old I Got A Woman and All Shook Up. Some of the rehearsed songs did survive during this two week engagement. For example It’s Midnight & If You Talk In Your Sleep & I’m Leavin’ became regular performed songs during these two weeks.

Now available are these very limited edition deluxe box sets.
Available in WHITE, PURPLE or BLUE vinyl.
Each vinyl colour being presented in its own awesome designed boxset. Get it while you can.

6363 SUNSET - VOLUME 2 - Deluxe digipack

We all remember the "good old days" when FTD released their first releases like
"The Jungle Room Sessions", "Fame and Fortune" and "Out in Hollywood".

Those cds were in our players for weeks, due to all the unreleased stuff, great sound quality and last but not least the fact there were a lot of complete outtakes never heard before.

After a while, although the releases were still fantastic, we got more and more cds with lots of outtakes from the same songs, great for collecting, but listening pleasure was a bit less fun...

The second release from MTP records is out now and will be another fan favorite!

Included are some very hard to find outtakes and rehearsals recorded at RCA's Hollywood, California studios.

This time, not only do we get tracks from '72 and '75 since there are also some essential tracks from the August 16, 1974 rehearsal, where Elvis made a completely new line up for his upcoming engagement.

Also included are some rare string overdubbed versions from the May 8, 1972 session.

This new release is at least as good as the first volume and is "Meant to be Played"

TRACKS:
Separate Ways - take 4,13 (spliced with take 21)
Where Do I Go From Here - take 2
Burning Love - Rehearsal #2 (March 31,1972)

Elvis Sessions From Clambake

Victrola is proud to present an ultimate 3CD-set of Elvis’ “CLAMBAKE” sessions. It is called simply “ELVIS SESSIONS FROM CLAMBAKE” and all these recordings including the masters came from the same 1989 DAT source tapes just as our very successful 2018 “AVVENTURA IN ORIENTE” 3CD release. We have decided to give that album a worthy follow up! What makes this new release special? Most tracks have been released before, but never before in such pristine quality!!!

Clambake the movie was definitely not Elvis’ finest moment but the soundtrack from 1967 does have some noteworthy songs. Elvis was tired of making the same movies again and again and it's around this time that they had to force him to come to the studio.

Elvis was looking for new challenges, as can be heard in the famous “Guitar Man” sessions. Victrola team is happy to bring you a lot of material with several unreleased outtakes of these sessions including stereo takes which were previously only available in mono.

Also presented here for the very first time are the “U. S. Male” outtakes which have only been released on an old CD called “Going Home” which was heavily noise reduced, resulting in a very unnatural, artificial sound. Finally, we present this session material the right way!

For the first time also, we release the stereo versions of the home recordings of “500 Miles” and “Blowing In The Wind”!

All tracks have been digitally restored and mastered in a renowned sound studio. This 3CD-set is presented in a stunning looking digipack. Do not miss your opportunity to obtain an ultimate “Clambake” release from Victrola label! If you enjoyed our “AVVENTURA IN ORIENTE”, then we are absolutely sure that you will love our new 3CD-set too!

Two New Straight Arrow Releases

ELVIS - KENTUCKY RAIN

Sunday, February 22, 1970 Midnight Show, Las Vegas International Hotel, Las Vegas, NV
This year, the "STRAIGHT ARROW" label team promises to focus especially on the concert years 1969-1972. After the great success of our 1969 release, titled "ELVIS - STRIKE LIKE LIGHTNING!" (SA/SP 2019-56-02), we're back again – this time with two great releases from 1970! The first CD is titled "KENTUCKY RAIN" (SA/SP 2019-57-02). The February 22nd, 1970 Midnight show is a previously unreleased concert, taken directly from an original audience recorded master tape. This concert was never available in good sound quality thus far (note: in 2007, the "SR" label released a so-called February 22nd, 1970 Midnight show on the "Rock In Black" double CD, but this show was wrongly dated and in fact it was the February 23rd, 1970 Dinner show!)

The February 22nd, 1970 Midnight show recording is slightly incomplete, missing the last song "Can't Help Falling In Love", so we have included this song in the same good sound, as taken from the February 20th, 1970 Dinner show, to make the concert "complete" for listeners' comfort.

As usual, this release is presented in a de-luxe 6-panel digipak, with a collection of photos taken in Las Vegas, NV, February 1970 and a press review.

Tracklist:
01. Opening Vamp - 02. All Shook Up - 03. I Got A Woman - 04. Long Tall Sally - 05. Don't Cry Daddy - 06. Hound Dog - 07. Monologue - 08. Love Me Tender (with false start) - 09. Kentucky Rain - 10. Let It Be Me - 11. I Can't Stop Loving You - 12. Walk A Mile In My Shoes (false start only) - 13. C. C. Rider - 14. Sweet Caroline - 15. Polk Salad Annie - 16. Introductions of singers, musicians, orchestra - 17. Suspicious Minds - 18. Introduction of Roy Orbison - 19. Can't Help Falling In Love.
Track 19 taken from February 20th, 1970 Dinner show.

Our second release is titled "LIKE A GREEK GOD" (SA/SP 2019-58-02).
The September 4th, 1970 Midnight show is a previously unreleased concert, taken from an original audience recorded tape. In 2005, the "Memory Records" label used 6 tracks from this tape as a bonus for "The Midnight Hour" CD. Unfortunately, the August 4th, 1970 Midnight show recording is incomplete, missing the last 3 songs. We have decided to add the same songs as taken from the September 5th, 1970 Midnight show to make the show "complete" for listeners' comfort.

The September 7th, 1970 Closing night was released by the "SR" label in 2008 in very poor, muffled sound, taken from a degraded x-generation copy (the "September Nights" CD). Once again we have used an original master tape and restored it to crisp, clear perfection. Elvis' crazy Closing night performance never sounded better - until NOW!

Both concerts presented on this release were recorded by same person. This release is presented in a de-luxe 8-panel digipak, with a collection of photos taken in Las Vegas, NV, August 1970 and a press review.

Tracklist:
CD1 (04.09.1970 M/S)
01. Orchestra Intro (ending only) / Opening Vamp - 02. That's All Right - 03. I Got A Woman / Amen - 04. Monologue / La Bamba (one line) / I Walk The Line (one line) - 05. Love Me Tender (with false start) - 06. I've Lost You - 07. I Just Can't Help Believin' - 08. You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin' - 09. Polk Salad Annie - 10. Crying Time (one verse) - 11. Introductions of singers, musicians, orchestra - 12. Johnny B. Goode - 13. Introductions cont'd / playing with laughing box - 14. Introduction of Trini Lopez, Paul Anka / My Way (one line) - 15. The Wonder Of You - 16. Heartbreak Hotel (false starts only) - 17. One Night (with false start) - 18. Blue Suede Shoes - 19. Hound Dog - 20. Bridge Over Troubled Water - 21. Can't Help Falling In Love - 22. Closing Vamp.

Track 18 spliced with 05.09.1970 Midnight show.
Tracks 19-22 taken from 05.09.1970 Midnight show.
CD2 (07.09.1970 C/S)
01. Orchestra Intro - 02. Opening Vamp - 03. That's All Right - 04. I Got A Woman / Amen - 05. Monologue / I Walk The Line (one line) - 06. Love Me Tender (false start only) - 07. I've Lost You - 08. I Just Can't Help Believin' - 09. You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin' - 10. Polk Salad Annie - 11. Introductions of singers, musicians, orchestra / Bob Dylan impersonations - 12. Introduction of Shirley Bassey, actor James Shigeta ("Paradise Hawaiian Style") - 13. Introduction of Colonel Tom Parker, Vernon Presley, Priscilla Presley - 14. Heartbreak Hotel (only 4 funny false starts) - 15. Blue Suede Shoes / Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On / Blue Suede Shoes - 16. Introduction of sound engineer Bill Porter, Felton Jarvis, light man - 17. All Shook Up (with false start) - 18. Hound Dog (with 2 false starts) - 19. Bridge Over Troubled Water - 20. Can't Help Falling In Love (with 2 false starts) - 21. Closing Vamp.

Both releases are expected very soon. In the meantime you may ask your local dealer for audio samples to judge for yourself! It's a new "STRAIGHT ARROW" so you know what to expect, anyway! Every second of these concerts was digitally restored, every click or disturbing clap in quiet songs manually removed, every drop-out or damaged place fixed to achieve optimal listening pleasure. What we plan to release the next time? Perhaps some unreleased concerts from 1971-1972, definitely not from 1976-1977 :-). Stay tuned!
Update May 30, 2019


THE CLASSIC BOOTLEG COLLECTION VOLUME 2

Now available is THE CLASSIC BOOTLEG COLLECTION VOLUME 2.
A sublime 6 cd box set with 6 classic Elvis Presley bootleg albums. Again there is chosen for some 50's , 60's and 70's instead of focusing on one time period.

This way all will be served! There is a big chance your favorite Elvis bootleg album is presented in this boxset.
These were the albums in the late 1970's and 1980's that fans were longing for, cause it presented much better (and rarer!) material than Elvis' own record company released in those days.

TWO GREAT RELEASES OUT MAY 15TH!

We all remember the "good old days" when FTD released their first releases like
"The Jungle Room Sessions", "Fame and Fortune" and "Out in Hollywood".

Those cds were in our players for weeks, due to all the unreleased stuff, great sound quality and last but not least the fact there were a lot of complete outtakes never heard before.

After a while, although the releases were still fantastic, we got more and more cds with lots of outtakes from the same songs, great for collecting, but listening pleasure was a bit less fun...

Time for some action!
The new label " MTP " (Meant to be Played) is proud to present their first release:

"OUT IN HOLLYWOOD volume 2" a release with some very rare and hard to find "complete" outtakes!
The artwork matches the original first release and has the same "feel" ... this looks to be a real winner!

"OUT IN HOLLYWOOD volume 2" 
1.    Roustabout - take 13
2.    Bossa Nova Baby - take 11
3.    Let Yourself Go - Reversed Master 
4.    Your Time Hasn't Come Yet, Baby - take 1

DUETS AND HARMONIES

Over the years there were many duets released with Elvis, during his life, but even more after his death , many "Stars" wanted to do a song with "The King" .

CMT is proud to present this incredible release, which has original duets, rare "harmony" versions and some newly made duets not released on any cd!
Duets include: Lisa Marie Presley, Connie Francis, Ray Charles, Cliff Richard, Anita Wood, Dale Watson, Kitty White, Charlie Hodge, Michael Buble, Nancy Sinatra, Ann Margret, J.D. Sumner, Barbara Streisand, Dolly Parton, Helene Fischer, Jerry Reed, Celine Dion, Shaun Nielsen, The Gatlin Brothers and Glen Cambell!

Just listen to the beautiful duet between Elvis and Dolly Parton, this version of "In the Ghetto" is very different from the original, and stands on it's own... it could have been a great release for a record, and without a doubt would have topped the charts!

"Ray Charles" provides a great "orchestrated" version of "I'll Never Stand In Your Way" where a very young Elvis joins him as if he was singing along with the record at home, the same goes for "My Happiness" with "Connie Francis"

"Ike and Tina Turner" start of "easy" and Elvis takes over with a very "rough" rockin' version of "Proud Mary" 

The 1958 duet "Crawfish" featuring Kitty White and Elvis has been re-edited now this really is a duet version which works very well!

Another highlight is the included version of "Softly, As I Leave You" .. "Michael Buble" sings the song, where Elvis recites the words.. in the end "Shaun Nielsen" joins in to make a breathtaking ending which leaves you with goosebumbs!

"JD Sumner" takes the lead, where "The Imperials" blend in to do the first part of "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" , then Elvis and "The Jordanaires" bring the song home!

Some harmony versions included in this set are also not  to be missed! "Fever" has Elvis singing multiple verses at once which sounds very rare and unusual.
"Kissin' Cousins" combines both the "Hillbilly" overdub and the "Regular" overdub... this is the only release where "Josh and Jody" sing the whole song together!
"Baby, I Don't Care" has two very different sounding takes of Elvis, and does now sound like a nice duet!

Combine all these tracks with some great duets from earlier hard to find releases and you will have a very unusual new album including 28 tracks!
The artwork fits the release very well, inside all the stars have "signed" their autograph, giving it an authentic touch since it is made just like a record album with fold out sleeve.

Elvis Sings The Harmony

After nearly 11 years, label “Reel Trax”, famous for now very rare import CDs “You'll Never Walk Alone” and “Where No One Stands Alone” is back with a new and exciting project, called “Elvis Sings The Harmony”.

Elvis´ love for singing harmony has its roots in his love for gospel choirs. It is absolutely common and even necessary to be able to sing harmony when you do gospel songs, unless you are always on lead vocals. From the very early stages of his career the “King” never really needed to do any harmony part. He had his beloved “Jordanaires” with him who did a great job all of the time. Later on there were plenty of other background singers who always could do the job (and did it of course) absolutely fantastic! Maybe Elvis chose to do his own harmony in the recording studio on a couple of songs because he COULD do it (and very well for sure). Maybe he got the idea from his own “home recordings” which we know quite a few of (as early as 1958)? One thing is clear: First you have to have the ability to do it. There have been many singers in show business who have NOT been able to do their own harmony because they simply did not know how to do it (you´ve got to have an “ear” for that)! Elvis did a great job on all of the songs you hear on this brand new CD, there´s no doubt. The one which is best known is certainly the legendary 1969 recording “Suspicious Minds”. But there sure is much more to explore on “Elvis Sings The Harmony” CD!

All tracks used for this project were taken from best possible sources available to date. Many of songs were individually restored and corrected and some are previously unreleased on CD. This unique release is presented in a de-luxe six-panel digipack with many unusual photos.

Tracks:

01. I'm Yours
02. Could I Fall In Love (harmony vocal overdub)
03. Singing Tree (remake with harmony vocals)

Spliced Takes - Ghetto Power

After last year's smash release STAX POWER the producers had to do this new release, made in the same editing style this will be THE must have 1969 release for it's 50th anniversary!

Including all tracks recorded and presented in a way as if it is one long session without pauses, this one kicks some serious A...

New splices create some extremely rare portions and extended versions and make them all sound brandnew! Also some Dubbed masters are spliced with Undubbed for a new listening experience.

Disc one starts of with a five (!) minute version of "Long Black Limousine" just listen to the emotion in his voice!

"This is the Story" has been created from the undubbed master, with some portions of the normal master, gives a totally new feel to the song.

A Little Bit of Green (4:28 minutes!) has an unusual rehearsal version spliced with some alternate takes, because of the slower pace of the rehearsal the producers have also slowed down these takes and it works very well, so you can enjoy a really different performance!

"Rubberneckin" rocks like never before due to the addition of the first "licks" of take 1

The extra chorus at the end of "Without Love" gives the song (if possible) an even more emotional "load"

"Suspicious Minds" includes a spliced version , some rehearsal portions and at the end we get the original master hit version... which was worth all the hard work and still rocks after all these years!

After almost 80 minutes it's time for disc two!

Again some cool extensions make them all sound very, very different.

"The Grass Won't Pay No Mind" (3:49 minutes) has been edited very cleverly at the end and brings you more "Elvis" then before. "Power of My Love" has a much longer intro, but due to the use of different takes (8 splices!) it all sounds very natural. On "Kentucky Rain" (5:22 minutes) Elvis does his own backing with the "Rain in my shoes" lyrics and the first verse has been repeated

We could go on, but almost all the tracks on this smash release sound new and fresh, and although every Elvis fan probably has at least 10 releases of these sessions.. This is the one we've been waiting for..... for 50 years!

Strike Like Lightning!

The “STRAIGHT ARROW” label is back with its first release of 2019, titled “STRIKE LIKE LIGHTNING!” (SA/SP 2019- 56-02). We are aware of the fact that we have released 1974-1977 Elvis concerts of late. These releases were appreciated by the hardcore fans, but we strongly felt that the time had come for a change. On the 50th anniversary of Elvis' fantastic comeback in 1969, we are now able to release a tape that captures the electricity of that event. Until now, we had not released any 1969 live shows before, simply because most live tapes from that year are poor quality. Imagine our excitement when we got hold of a good sounding tape of a sensational gig from that magical year!

The August 8th, 1969 M/S is a previously unreleased recording, taken from a newly found audience recorded mastertape. This concert was never available in good sound quality thus far. There is a CDR with a so-called August 5th, 1969 M/S in circulation, which is the same concert, taken from an xxx-generation copy, but wrongly dated and in far inferior audio quality. Original cassette paperwork proves that this concert is definitely the August 8th, 1969 M/S!

As a small bonus, we have decided to add 4 tracks, recorded during the August 27th, 1969 D/S. Two of these tracks were released by the “Victrola” label on their conceptual 3CD album “FLESH, BLOOD AND BONE” but these were never before available in decent sound quality, before now.

As usual, this release is presented in a de-luxe 6-panel digipak, with a collection of photos taken in Las Vegas, NV, August 1969. Most of the photos were taken by Ann Moses, editor of Tiger Beat Magazine. Dig the psychedelic, period perfect artwork! As for the concert itself... wow, just wow! Elvis is groovy, sexy, earthy, charismatic, funny... And singing with real fire in his belly, never really heard again after this. Pure greatness.

It’s a new “STRAIGHT ARROW” so you know what to expect! Every second was digitally restored, every click manually removed, every drop-out fixed to achieve optimal listening pleasure. Ask your local dealer for samples to judge for yourself!

In 2019, the Straight Arrow team will focus especially on the concert years 1969-1972, so stay tuned. We're just warming up! … There's more comin'!
Tracklist:
01. Opening Theme - 02. Blue Suede Shoes - 03. I Got A Woman - 04. All Shook Up - 05. Love Me Tender - 06. Jailhouse Rock / Don't Be Cruel - 07. Heartbreak Hotel - 08. Hound Dog - 09. Memories - 10. Mystery Train / Tiger Man - 11. Monologue (Life Story) - 12. Baby What You Want Me To Do - 13. Runaway - 14. Are You Lonesome Tonight - 15. Yesterday / Hey Jude - 16.

Update March 26, 2019


To be released in the middle of April, There’s no Tomorrow (SR Records) will focus on Elvis’ August 1973 Vegas season, featuring the midnight show from August 10, 1973, previously unreleased and taken directly from the original high quality tape.
The SR attitude is to present Elvis at the peak of his possibility and without any doubt Elvis’ first week in Vegas August season still presents him at the top of his possibilities, delivering great shows. If Rock is an attitude, then the man still has it. The performances are terrific, rough and sharp.

Elvis’ tolerance for Vegas has reached its limit in this season and the man will do nothing to hide it. But the beginning of the season is certainly promising and in this show in particular his enthusiasm shines through in every note . Elvis performs all the songs to the maximum of his possibilities, also pushing the band and giving the right time and presenting all the best of his repertoire ranging in all musical genres as only he can do.

We are happy to be able to associate great performance with great audio quality in order to be able to obtain a result that you can enjoy too. The ambiance tape is of very good quality, as you can appreciate both Elvis and the band and at the same time you can feel and live the live atmosphere of the intimate Las Vegas Showroom. The show has already said is great, starting from his latest single Steamroller Blues then with autobiographical You Gave a Mountain & My Boy then with the anthem An American Trilogy passing the best single of 1969, Suspicious Minds without forgetting the glorious fifties with Heartbreak Hotel and Mystery Train…. All the songs are very well performed. The Best song We can say I Can’t Stop Loving You: both Elvis and the band are pushing strong with a great job of James Burton guitar.

This new SR special Product will be housed in a deluxe 300 grams single sleeve that includes together the 150 grams vinyl, a Bonus CD and bonus high glossy 300 grams 30x30 cm Art Card both sides printed.

In order to have a special collector’s item, the 400 copies will be presented with FOUR different vinyl color VARIATIONS. All the copies will come with Glossy Sticker hand numbered and individually sealed and Please remember!! This is a LIMITED HAND NUMBERED set of 400 COPIES.

As tradition of the label, SR LABEL DECIDED TO PRODUCE TOGETHER THE 400 copies of STANDARD EDITION A LIMITED DELUXE EDITION of 50 copies WITH EXCLUSIVE CONTENTS.

COLLECT THEM ALL!!!!!!

We’re always tryin’ to give more, We hope of this new release will be a real great update of your Elvis’ live show collection.
