An American Trilogy

Las Vegas Concert Recordings, January/February 1972 Engagement - Release Date: April 1, 2007

This quarter's regular 5” digipack release covers Elvis’ engagement at The Las Vegas Hilton in January-February, 1972. RCA did not record entire shows, and several of the new songs Elvis had added to his shows were only recorded once. The consequence is that the main body of the CD – the RCA recordings – feature several previously released versions. 

Soundboard (informal) recordings of other song performances during the envagement were added to the end of the disc in order to make this as representative as possible of Elvis’ repertoire at that time. Full track listing

Unchained Melody

The latest FTD release Unchained Melody is now out.

This a soundboard recording from an Elvis concert in Charlotte, North Carolina on February 20, 1977.  For unknown reasons, the engineer never recorded the beginning of the shows on this tour, and consequently the CD starts with Love Me rather than Elvis's usual opening material for this tour. Bonus songs from other concerts on the same tour are included.

FTD to delete four releases: Follow That Dream Records has announced the first deletions from its catalogue of Elvis CDs.  Here is the message from FTD producers Ernst Jorgensen and Roger Semon:

When we started FTD we thought that the interest in our releases would be limited to a 12-24 months period. We were wrong as many titles keep selling for a long time and consequently need to stay in the catalogue. However, at this time, we need to phase out certain releases, as the numbers are too small to justify the expense of reprinting. The following titles will be deleted when the remaining stock is sold: Out In Hollywood, Silver Screen Stereo, Fame And Fortune, and The Way It Was.

A note from Ernst and Roger about FTD releases in 2006

2006 will be the last year where we will divide evenly between regular releases of “soundboard” material and RCA material. We will be running out of studio outtakes, except for the Classic Albums releases. Research is always going on, but hope of finding the missing studio tapes is small. We have a lot of historical Las Vegas engagements and tours to cover through soundboards, and obviously an enormous number of classic albums to restore. Thanks for another great year. We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.......Ernst and Roger
