'100 SUPER ROCKS' New Import Box-set: The publicity says... Presented here is another fan favorite from the 70’s.
100 Super Rocks is without doubt one of the best distributed Elvis LP Box sets ever.
There have been several very popular editions of this boxset available in France, Australia & Germany. Each with their own unique artwork. Now available are three VERY LIMITED different versions of this boxset, German, Australian and French edition. All with 5cds & wonderful poster.
Each set includes a fantastic bonus disc with rare and hard to find versions of songs present on the original box set. A great spinner!
EIN Says: File under "the bootleggers are getting desperate" a compilation of songs that every Elvis collector already has.
If I want to play 100 Super-Rocks I'd play the original vinyl for the true 70s feel.
Very oddly the original vinyl set never included 'That's All Right' or 'Mystery Train' yet included 'I Don't Care If The Sun Don't Shine'

Tuesday 12 May 2020
‘Elvis Reborn: New Mono to Stereo’ CD In-Depth Review: The publicity notes, "Hear 30 classic Elvis songs like you've never heard them before... in STEREO!
These are NOT "overdubs". All of the sounds you hear are the original musicians backing Elvis, but with a clarity that exposes for the first time sounds you never heard before!"

The MONO vs STEREO debate is a fascinating discussion, so we need to get some facts straight before we investigated the possibilities of this new Elvis "Stereo" release.
The earliest recordings of the sound era were recorded in MONO with the singer and orchestra carefully positioned around one microphone. But even in Sun Studios it was actually Sam Phillips who created Elvis' classic mono recordings.
Elvis and the Blue Moon Boys were not playing "mono" - nor were they recorded via one microphone.
So listening in "Fake Stereo" can fans really learn anything new about how some of these life-changing songs that Elvis recorded in the studio were created?
Is it truly possible that these "DES Stereo" versions actually sound better than their original classic mono vinyl releases?
EIN's Piers Beagley is open to new ideas that might reveal
something new and interesting about Elvis' classic recording sessions and so takes a detailed look into this new compilation and the "MONO vs STEREO" debate.

‘Elvis Reborn 2: More Mono to Stereo’ Promo Video: Just as EIN reviews the first DES "Mono to Stereo" release, producer Larry Jordan announces the follow-up release of 'Elvis Reborn Vol. 2 - More Mono To Stereo Mixes'. Once again this CD contains 30 stereo mixes of mono recordings created using the Digitally Extracted Stereo (DES) technique. It is OUT NOW.
In the review of "‘Elvis Reborn One" EIN questioned the failure to use the brilliant-in-stereo Heartbreak Hotel as the first track. Well, guess what track one is on the new release!

Tracklist: Heartbreak Hotel, Hound Dog, Teddy Bear, I Don't Care If The Sun Don't Shine, I Got A Woman, I'm Not The Marrying Kind, Baby Let's Play House, Treat Me Nice, Lover Doll, Ready Teddy, Don't Leave Me Now, Tryin' To Get To You, Shake Rattle And Roll, I'll Never Let You Go, Paralyzed, I'm Left, You're Right, She's Gone, Party, I'm Gonna Sit Right Down And Cry (Over You), Blueberry Hill, As Long As I Have You, I Want To Be Free, I Got Stung, All Shook Up, That's When Your Heartaches Begin, My Baby Left Me Too Much, I'm Counting On You, Lawdy Miss Clawdy, Have I Told You Lately That I Love You, Hard Headed Woman

'Spinout on the Speedway' New Import CD: The CMT label suggest that this series needs no further introduction.
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 of value in this release since almost all sounds very different than usual without using fake remixes or overdubs
A card-sleeve edition
So sit back and relax, and leave the driving to Elvis!

'Made In Memphis Vol.2' New Import CD: "Home Sweet Home", a new CD 'Made In Memphis Vol.2' in Deluxe Digipack
Some hard to find recordings recorded in Memphis Tennessee.
Includes live performances, informal recordings and some rare outtakes.
Just like the previous releases this one is "Meant to be played" and there are many nice and hard to find tracks on it for you to enjoy!
The set includes 6 alternate singles from all the sessions Elvis did in Memphis, plus recordings from 3 different concerts he gave at the Midsouth Colliseum.
Combined with some home recordings and informal tracks the set has just the right combination to be very different compared to other releases.

'Houston, I'm Back Again' Deluxe VINYL Set: For the first time on vinyl both shows of Houston 4th & 5th of June 1975 and the AUDIENCE recording of the complete second Houston show included as a bonus.
As always the 'VV' label presents 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.
Previously released on multiple bootlegs including
June 4 - The Eagle Has Landed / Goin' Back To Houston
June 5 - Howdy Houston / Goin' Back To Houston

'Elvis: Live in California' May 1974 FTD Review: The most recent live soundboard 5” double-digipack FTD release which this time focused on Elvis' short Tour of California which went from May 10 to May 13 1974. CD1 features a combination of May 10 San Bernardino Opening Show / Fresno May 12 show while the second CD features May 13 San Bernardino Closing Show.
Best of all, these shows are previously unreleased soundboards.
In 1974 Elvis added the new songs 'Help Me', 'Let Me Be There' and ‘Why Me Lord’ to his set-list plus the old SUN classic ‘Trying To Get To You’ while on this tour Elvis added 'Big Boss Man' which he would then keep performing through to 1977. With 'Polk Salad', 'Steamroller Blues', 'Suspicious Minds', 'I Can't Stop Loving You' and 'An American Trilogy' also in the mix, the set-list was a truly solid selection.
With a mix of fifties oldies, classics hits, new material and some nice surprises fans would have truly enjoyed these shows.
Elvis soundboard super-collector Geoffrey McDonnell & EIN's Piers Beagley have a close look at this new FTD release .....

'Down By The Falls' New Import CD: A new release from the Touchdown label, 'Down By The Falls' contains the previously released afternoon show from July 13, 1975.
This new upgraded AUDIENCE recording of the Niagara Falls concert, that was first released over twenty-five years ago, offers a much improved sound quality and more than half-a-dozen bonus tracks that represent other highlights of Elvis’ acclaimed late summer tour in 1975.

EIN Note: This July 1975  tour has so far not been covered by FTD although plenty of the concerts have been bootlegged such as 'Gyrating Asheville' and 'Pieces of my Life'.
In fact this CD features 'Pieces of my Life' from the final Asheville show.

'Still Classy In Omaha' New Import CD: The Verve label also suggest they shows how good soundboards can sound, if done properly.
When FTD released the April 22, 1976 Omaha concert in 2008 almost everyone was disappointed about the mix, which had the background singers way, way up in front. It sounded terrible and it still is one of the worst releases by the collector’s label. (Umm, EIN would agree with that!)
It was always said that you can’t do anything about the sound picture, as the soundboard is what it is, but that’s wrong.
It is possible to correct the sound picture, 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!
EIN Note: The final concert of this 1976 tour, Spokane, April 27 is about to be released on the next FTD 'ELVIS: St. Louis & Spokane'. Hopefully the Closing Night will be better than Omaha.

‘With Renewed Vigour’ New Import CD: The Straight Arrow label announces their first release of 2020, ‘With Renewed Vigour’ - Charlotte, March 20th, 1976 Afternoon Show. 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 previously released from an incomplete and inferior source back in 1994. 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!
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.
Holding Back The Years (A New Kind Of Rhythm) from March 21, 1976 Cincinnati is probably the most well-known show from this 1976 Tour. FTD have not yet released a concert from this tour.
Ask your local dealer for audio samples! Straight Arrow team is always looking for new, unreleased audience taped shows and for better versions of already released recordings. If you have such tapes, even damaged/broken ones, do not hesitate to contact us, through your local dealer.

'Time Is Slipping Away' New Import: EP collector have announced their new release 'Time Is Slipping Away' , AUDIENCE recorded live at the University of Oklahoma, Norman, OK, March 25, 1977.
The title is inspired by the fact that Elvis he 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!

‘Work In Progress’ The Guitar Man Album Sessions Vol. 1 New Import: 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.

‘Southbound’ 1976 New Import Re-Release: 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. 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.
EIN Note: Elvis' show at Jackson, Mississippi, September 5, 1976 was released by FTD and is probably the best show and recording of this tour - Go here for the FTD review.

MRS 'Elvis:Back In Living Stereo' in-depth Review: The new MRS set contains 6CDs of essential 1960-1962 master recordings, plus rare alternate outtakes - including plenty of officially unreleased material - and all of the personal home recordings Elvis made during the 1960s.
The 100 page book, with text from Gordon Minto, includes rare unpublished documents and photographs, supported by a comprehensive text discussing each of Elvis’ RCA studio (non-film) recording sessions held during 1960-62.
Musically the packed cds - over seven hours - present a stunning look at Elvis recording in the early sixties before the shine wore off. The "Master" sessions nicely contrast with the looser "Outtakes" discs and with Elvis getting even more uninhibited on the Home Recordings. - Very unihibited with a certain Nancy Sharpe!

But with so much thrown into the mix, and some tracks in poor audio quality, have MRS packed "Too Much" into the one release.

Go here as EIN's Nigel Patterson & Piers Beagley check out the positives and negatives in their in-depth review.

"Elvis Reborn" New CD:Out now a stunning rework of Elvis' mono classics into impressive STEREO.
.. Hear 30 classic Elvis songs like you've never heard them before... in STEREO!
Through a new, cutting-edge digital audio process called DES (Digitally Extracted Stereo), it is now possible to create new, authentic-sounding stereo mixes from original mono recordings.
Since instruments and vocals typically occupy fairly narrow frequency ranges, DES is able to isolate guitars, drums, piano, bass, singers, etc. and extract them into separate tracks that can be remixed just like multi-track stereo recordings. This breakthrough technology allows fans to experience their
favorite mono songs in a more lifelike way than ever before!
These are NOT "overdubs". No new instrumentation has been added. All of the sounds you hear are the original musicians backing Elvis, but with a clarity that exposes for the first time sounds you never heard before!
This exciting, trend-setting CD is as close as you will come to actually being present in the studio when these songs were recorded in the glory days of rock 'n' roll.
01. Jailhouse Rock
02. Blue Suede Shoes
03. What A Wonderful Life

New FTD February Releases: Two new FTD releases announce for release later next month.
1. 'Elvis In California' Double-soundboard. As part of the ongoing live on tour series, FTD is pleased to announce the release of 'Elvis In California'. Released as a 2-CD 5” digi-pak, this set features Elvis touring during May 1974.
Elvis' 10th tour was short, five concerts in California over four days the most famous being his two 'Forum of Inglewood' concerts on May 11, 1974. (As released on FTD 'Live in LA')
Elvis was in good form.  The San Bernadino local review of Elvis' first concert there included, "Above all Elvis Presley knows what the faithful want and he bowls them over with his style. That's why he was a sellout at the Swing last night, will be on Monday night when he returns, and sells out wherever he performs.
"I'm a cement mixer, baby," he snarls at the screamers, "a churning urn of burning funk." Believe it."
The shows, taken from the original soundboard tapes, feature unreleased concerts from Selland Arena, Fresno (May 12) and Swing Auditorium, San Bernadino (May 10 & 13).
The set-list is familiar early 1974 material including, Steamroller Blues, Help Me, Funny How Time Slips Away and Big Boss Man.
Go here for full tracklists

2. 'Love Letters From Elvis' special double-vinyl.  FTD Vinyl’s next release is the upgrade of 'Love Letters From Elvis' featuring plenty of outtakes and masters.
Recorded during the marathon sessions held in Nashville, June 4-8, 1970, the original LP became the last album of utilising songs recorded during that week.
This new 180-gram heavyweight vinyl edition mastered at Abbey Road in London.
Tracklist includes Cindy, Cindy takes 2, 3 (undubbed master), Rags To Riches – take 3, Love Letters – takes 1,3, It Ain’t No Big Thing (But It’s Growing) – takes 1,2 as well as If I Were You – takes 2-5 and Heart Of Rome – takes 2, 3 (undubbed master).

'Lonesome August Nights' New Import: To be released in the early February, Lonesome August Nights (SR Records) will focus on Elvis’ August 1972 Las Vegas season, featuring August 18 1972 dinner & midnight show AUDIENCE RECORDINGS, 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.
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.
All the copies will come with Glossy Sticker hand-numbered and individually sealed and Please remember!! This is a limited set of 400 COPIES.

'Elvis 42 Years Before & After' New Import: A future CD with an interesting theme. EIN believes it will be coming out of Europe.
... Elvis achieved many musical highs, however his career didn’t end at age 42 in 1977.
The first disc of this double Cd set brings you all the most important recordings and hits from his lifetime. From Elvis’ 1954 debut at the Sun label through to the 'Elvis In Concert' 1977 CBS TV special.
The second disc contains the stuff that has kept his name and legacy alive some 42 years after that fatal day in August 1977. From Felton Jarvis' 1980 Re-Recording session through to 2018 Where No One Stands Alone duet with Lisa-Marie Presley.
It is a journey through new songs, remakes and remixes, a live recording from Elvis The Concert World Tour and finally duets with well-known artists and his daughter Lisa Marie Presley.
EIN loves the "Sgt Pepper" cover image!

American Sound Sessions 1969, available for the first time on vinyl, features rare and unreleased outtakes from these legendary sessions.

'First In Line Vol. 2' New Import: Out now 'First In Line Vol.2' from MxF Records focusses on Elvis’ January & February 1974 Vegas season, featuring the midnight show January 30th and the evening show February 8th, 1974, both the shows previously unreleased and from the original AUDIENCE 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.
Both the AUDIENCE tapes are 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.
In the first show closer to the opening of the season we still have the splendid You’ve Lost The Loving Feeling dropped 9 days later, with the inclusion of Sweet Caroline, the classic Johnny B. Good and the sentimental The First Time Ever I saw your Face.. longer show and slightly better in the audio quality and for this reason included in the LP.
This new MxF special Product will be housed in a deluxe 300 grams single sleeve that includes
together with the 150 grams vinyl, the two Bonus CDs and bonus high glossy 130 grams 60x30 cm Poster both sides printed.

'Inside Elvis' Out Now: Available now is the new hardback book 'Inside Elvis' an "Elvis One / Rock Legends" publication. The 300 page book features Arjan Deelen's interviews with many of Elvis' musicians, including James Burton, Bob Lanning, Scotty Moore, Jim Murray, Jerry Scheff, D.J. Fontana, The Sweet Inspirations, The Holladay Sisters, Glen D. Hardin, Johnny Christopher, Charlie Hodge, Duke Bardwell, Sherril Nielsen and The Imperials. Some of these interviews first appeared in "Elvis - The Man and his Music". These in-depth, candid interviews are presented here in complete, unedited form.

Highlights include the first-ever interview with the elusive Bob Lanning, and a heartwarming conversation last year with Jim Murray, where Jim concluded the interview saying, "These are things that I've never told anybody before". There are many great stories and unique insights that will give you a deeper perspective of the man and his music.

This impressive work contains over 300 photographs from the collections of various high-profile collectors, and most of these are in color and razor-sharp. The artwork of the book was done by graphic artist Michael van Werven, who has worked during most of 2019 on the design of 'Inside Elvis', and has made it a visually stunning work.

Also included as an extra is a 29-track CD containing various rarities, including the acetate of 'Viva Las Vegas', rare live attempts at 'Crying Time', promos for both 'Love Me Tender' and 'Jailhouse Rock', as well as 'Heartbreak Hotel' and 'Hound Dog' from Elvis' show at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas, Texas on October 11th, 1956 (note: very poor audio), courtesy of longtime collector Luuk Bonthond, who had the recording since the 60s

Price for the book is EUR50. Postage to Europe is EUR20, rest of the world US$30.

'The ELVIS Movie' New STAR DVD: A new DVD from the STAR label, 'The ELVIS Movie' starring Kurt Russell but with the soundtrack of Elvis Presley!
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 McDowell's soundtrack with the only singer that should have been there in the first place ELVIS!
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 Russell's lip-syncing 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.
After 40 years the movie finally is ELVIS!

'Love My Teddy Bear Tender' New Import CD: Live at the International Hotel, Las Vegas, NV, September 3rd, 1971, the AUDIENCE recorded 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. 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' New Import CD: Live at the UOT Stokely Arena, Knoxville, TN, April 8, 1972 AUDIENCE recorded Evening show. EP's 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!!
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.
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.

'You're Driving Me Crazy' MRS Vinyl Promo: MRS have now released  'You're Driving Me Crazy'  (Anita Wood calls Elvis Presley) a one-sided vinyl 'Promo LP Track' to help advertise their new 6CD/Book combo 'Elvis: Back In Living Stereo'. This is surely one of the strangest Elvis collectable's ever to be released.
It features a 25 minute phone conversation between Anita Wood and Elvis that she recorded in 1961 when she was becoming suspicious of Elvis not being faithful to her.
Worth noting is that because it is a phone conversation recorded in 1961 the audio quality is terrible.
More importantly in this new "Me Too" era Elvis comes off as arrogant, angry and not the charming man all his fans want him to be.
Anita Wood has since stated that she wished she had never made the phone call and it is interesting that in the low-tech early 60s she had decided to record the conversation. You can feel that she was setting Elvis up as she keeps on pushing him for better answers to tricky questions.
What Anita Wood hoped to prove (or record) I have no idea.
Most people at some time or another wish they hadn't said such stupid things to their friends / partners and this feels like such a private conversation I doubt if fans would ever want to listen to it more than once.
Whether this private phone conversation should ever have been released is a debatable point. My personal feeling is that it will be sad interruption in the otherwise glorious up-coming MRS box-set of Elvis' early 60s recordings.
However there is no doubt that this vinyl promo release will become a real Elvis collectable.
You can hear more discussion about this new track in the most recent 'Elvis Express' radio show.

'Elvis: From Hollywood To Nashville' MRS Vinyl review: Released just in time for my birthday MRS has put out a limited edition vinyl compilation 'Elvis: From Hollywood To Nashville - The Essential 1957-58 Studio Masters'.
Featuring a delicious selection of Elvis' studio work from 1957 until he he got "drafted & shafted" in 1958, this album basically features all his studio recordings - except for the movie soundtracks and the ubiquitous Christmas album.

From 'All Shook Up' to 'I Got Stung' Elvis was riding a creative peak.

With a limited pressing of 1,000 copies, 400 in Clear Vinyl and 600 in Black vinyl this is a treat.

EIN grabbed a copy and played it loud - go here for our review.
