‘Elvis Presley - Rock‘n’Roll No. 2’ Mono II Stereo’: From the RDM label........ Rediscover Elvis Presley's second album with a new stereo mix! Simply titled "Elvis", it is presented here with the addition of eight singles, and is the second in a series of new mono-to-stereo mixes of classic Presley albums, created by producer Anthony Stuchbury. The cover art for the British version of the album, titled "Elvis Presley No.2", released via HMV in April 1957, was significantly different from the American version. A mustard yellow background was added to a black and white photo from September 1956, while a font similar to that used on the first album completed the rock 'n' roll vibe. Following the expiration of HMV's license in 1958 for Presley's Uk recordings, this title was removed and quickly became a highly sought-after collector's item. RCA UK would return to the American cover for its reissue of the album in December 1962. However as the album was affectionately nicknamed "Rock 'n' Roll No.2" in British fan circles we have used the same subtitle.
This new Mono II Stereo CD edition pays homage to the now legendary British cover and allows you to rediscover 20 songs that have marked the history of rock! - Out April 2024.

FTD 'Moody Blue' Sparkly Gold Vinyl: There must be still "gold in the mountain" as FTD announce a reprint of their 2015 'Moody Blue' double-album this time in Gold Sparkle!  
... FTD Vinyl is pleased to announce the release of Elvis’ last studio album in Limited Edition Gold Sparkle 180-Gram vinyl.
This individually numbered gold collectible is limited to 4000 Worldwide.
Apart from outtakes of “Way Down” and “Moody Blue”, this 2-LP deluxe edition includes “If You Love Me (Let Me Know)”, “Pledging My Love”, He’ll Have To Go” plus two undubbed versions of his now legendary emotional interpretation of “Unchained Melody”..

EIN was disappointed first time around (see FTD 2015 releases here) that it did not include the full-length version of 'Pledging My Love'. Sadly it still doesn't.

Official release date is 23rd February 2024.
The CD features live performances of both the Midnight and 3:AM concerts from Elvis’ May 1973 engagement at The Sahara Tahoe in Lake Tahoe, Nevada.
The shows are presented in stereo for the first time ever.

The accompanying booklet - featuring rare photographs, memorabilia and includes liner notes that set the scene.
The LP version is only of the 3:AM show and is available in black and clear (the clear only Elvis dealers) versions.

'Elvis Presley At 3am: Sahara Tahoe 1973' New MRS:
The Deluxe 2CD set features two shows from Elvis’ May 1973 engagement at The Sahara Tahoe in Lake Tahoe, Nevada. Included is a rare 3am charity performance as well as the midnight show from the previous night.
Both shows for the first time are presented in stereo.
The accompanying booklet includes memorabilia and rare photos along with liner notes that set the scene.
MRS official publicity has not been released yet but EIN notes that the 3am show is in very good quality audio and Elvis is loose, having fun, the mix is excellent and captures an important part of Elvis' emotional year.
Similarly the Midnight concert is a very good performance, with a lovely ‘Im Leavin’, ‘I’ll Remember You’ and stunning ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’.
Also the shows feature Emory Gordy playing bass guitar which is an interesting change since it is Emory Gordy's thundering bass that drives along the 'Burning Love' single so fabulously.

The VINYL version only features the 3am performance

New MRS special 'Vinyl EP/CD' Releases: Exclusively to Elvis dealers only, next month MRS will release two very collectable titles both comprising a 7” gatefold 45rpm vinyl EP single housed together with a sleeved CD EP single.
These are expected to be released early March 2024.
This unique packaging, designed and created by MRS, comprises on the inside left panel a CD wallet inserted into a slot and on the right panel a vinyl 45rpm 7” EP single. The 45rpms will be available in both black and crystal-clear vinyl.
Since these two titles will NOT be available on mainstream internet sites and stores, these releases are in extremely limited numbers.

These two uniquely designed EPs are, ‘Elvis Presley & Frank Sinatra – Welcome Home Elvis’ and ‘Follow That Dream’.

- Elvis Presley & Frank Sinatra – Welcome Home Elvis
Throughout his career, Elvis only performed one live duet with another artist – in this case, Frank Sinatra, another great icon of his time which was recorded on 26 March 1960 in Miami. The show itself, ‘The Frank Sinatra Timex Show’ was broadcast on 12 May 1960.

Taken from a recently discovered original acetate, this historic recording has been carefully remastered and is presented here in the best quality ever.
45RPM EXTENDED PLAY VINYL – REMASTERED ACETATE
SIDE A
1. Fame and Fortune
2. Stuck On You
SIDE B

2. Medley - Witchcraft/Love Me Tender
3. Love Me Tender (reprise)

CD SINGLE EP

2. Fame and Fortune
3. Stuck On You
4. Introduction
5. Medley - Witchcraft/Love Me Tender
6. Love Me Tender (reprise)
7. Frank Sinatra and Nancy say farewell to Elvis

NOTE: For this exceptional compilation MRS will also release a CD single only version - shown right- that will be available to mainstream internet sites and stores.

- Follow That Dream
For the first time ever, the master tracks from the Elvis movie Follow That Dream (1961) are now available in true living stereo and have been mixed to the recordings that were originally conceived.

At the time of the studio session the crucial stereo masters were lost, which meant that subsequently only mono versions have ever been released. Until now...



Go here to check out the great sounding YouTube STEREO song samples - put on your headphones!

Note that the YouTube sound samples are compressed compared to the actual MRS releases. They still sound fabulous in stereo.

'The King In Motown City' New '77 Import CD: The EP Collector Label is back with another unique release of Elvis show in Detroit, April 23rd, 1977. AUDIENCE recording
This was the very last show that Elvis played in Detroit, primarily known as the center of the automobile industry, where three major car manufacturers operate - Ford, Chrysler and General Motors, hence the nickname Motown ("motor city").
The April 22nd, 1977 concert was previously released in 2006 on the extremely poor sounding CD "The King Has Landed" with several tracks being incomplete. This show was never available in solid, listenable sound - until now! The new tape was obtained from an American fan and has been carefully restored and mastered in January 2024, with a focus on preserving the integrity of the original recording. Hence, some minor hiss may be present; we felt it more important to keep the high frequencies and natural ambience of the original recording for historic reasons. The sound is very good for an off line recording - ask your CD dealer for audio samples!
As usual the CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipack with local press review. All images used for the artwork were taken during April 1977 tour including real Detroit photos.
EIN Note: Elvis played Detroit on April 22 1977,  not April 23rd!
The concert did not get great reviews

'Elvis '68 Unleashed' Double-Vinyl: The first vinyl release from Reel Trax, a new 2LP set 'Elvis '68 Unleashed' The Legendary Standup Shows.
After the great success of our recent CD release from December of last year which has been inspired by the celebration of the 55th Anniversary of Elvis' legendary NBC-TV Special we decided to release the soundtrack now carefully remastered for vinyl – on a stunning looking 12-inch 2-LP set and for even better sound results to be played at 45 RPM!
Vinyl collectors are well aware that two RPMs are widely available now: 33 and 45 revolutions per minute. 45 RPM records have better sound quality than 33 ⅓ RPM records do. This is because they have more grooves for the turntable's needle to read and can express more complex and nuanced sound patterns as a result.

Step back in time and relive the extraordinary talent of Elvis Presley. "Elvis Unleashed '68" pays tribute to a musical icon who lives on forever in the hearts of millions of fans around the world. We revisit the probably most vibrant scenery of the so-called '68 “Comeback”. Reel Trax is bringing back the magic with a brandnew 2-LP release. Carefully curated and remastered in great-sounding Stereo in a highly valued professional studio in Europe, the legendary Standup shows are coming to new life.

The sensational looking double album complete with liner notes from those who were there in 1968 (and written especially for this release!) is a real eye-catcher and informative as well. This album captures the raw and unrestrained energy of Elvis Presley like never before. It transports you directly to the iconic standup shows of “The King”, recorded in June 1968.
After a period of absence from the stage, Elvis made a triumphant return to the spotlight with a short series of unforgettable concerts before a close audience. Meant to be shown in parts in the then upcoming TV-Special simply called “ELVIS” it was a sensational appearance in its own. In general it was a time when he rediscovered his musical roots while filming the special and he delivered his art with pure passion. With an impressive collection of timeless classics, breathtaking vocal performances, and spontaneous interactions with the audience, "Elvis Unleashed '68" reveals the true essence of a legendary artist at the peak of his power.

LP 1: Recorded June 29, 1968 (6:00 PM) at Burbank Studios, CA
Side 1: Heartbreak Hotel / Hound Dog / All Shook Up / Can’t Help Falling In Love  / Jailhouse Rock / Don’t Be Cruel / Blue Suede Shoes

‘AT 3:AM – LAKE TAHOE 1973’ MRS Press release: UK Label ‘Memphis Recording Service’ (MRS) will release a deluxe 2CD set, and an LP  titled ‘AT 3:AM – LAKE TAHOE 1973’ both on 23rd February 2024.
The CD features live performances of both the Midnight and 3:AM concerts from Elvis’ May 1973 engagement at The Sahara Tahoe in Lake Tahoe, Nevada.
The shows are presented in stereo for the first time ever.
The accompanying booklet - featuring rare photographs, memorabilia and  includes liner notes that set the scene.

The LP version is only of the 3:AM show and is available in black and clear (the clear only Elvis dealers) versions.

EIN Note: A new high-res image of the front cover was provided and you can see that the design is a stunner.

 

 

'Elvis Presley At 3am: Sahara Tahoe 1973' New MRS: The UK MRS label are releasing a new set 'Elvis Presley At 3am: Lake Tahoe 1973' out at the end of February 2024.
The Deluxe 2CD set features two shows from Elvis’ May 1973 engagement at The Sahara Tahoe in Lake Tahoe, Nevada. Included is a rare 3am charity performance as well as the midnight show from the previous night.
Both shows for the first time are presented in stereo.
The accompanying booklet includes memorabilia and rare photos along with liner notes that set the scene.
MRS official publicity has not been released yet but EIN notes that the 3am show is in very good quality audio and Elvis is loose, having fun, the mix is excellent and captures an important part of Elvis' emotional year.
Similarly the Midnight concert is a very good performance, with a lovely ‘Im Leavin’, ‘I’ll Remember You’ and stunning ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’.
Also the shows feature Emory Gordy playing bass guitar which is an interesting change since it is Emory Gordy's thundering bass that drives along the 'Burning Love' single so fabulously.
The VINYL version only features the 3am performance

CD Review 'The Joan Deary Tapes Vol1' - and has Ernst won the war?’: Two years ago EIN posted an article suggesting that the Elvis bootleg era was over, that FTD and Ernst Jorgensen had truly won the war.
So it was a surprise to many that a new bootleg label ‘Joan Deary Inc’ suddenly popped up two months ago promising a very similar series of releases to the Madison ‘A Legendary Performer’ set.
They promised "Unique content... with never issued before outtakes. Some very different mixes among other glorious sounding tracks. Every track comes in great sound quality and has been remastered for optimal listening pleasure..."
EIN was suspicious from the start - to be honest I saw no need to purchase this CD - but several EIN readers wanted to know more before they put down their hard earned cash.
Go here as EIN's Piers Beagley investigates to see if there is life in this new series of Elvis bootleg releases...
Please read this before ordering ... we've done the work so that you don't have to!
