CMT har annonsert en ny CD; Elvis in Concert: “No Comments”. Denne inneholder det originale Elvis in Concert-albumet med alle fan-kommentarene fjernet.


From the label: “If You Haven’t guessed by now... it’s been 40 years!” CMT is back with an outstanding release! It’s been 40 years since RCA released “Elvis in Concert” , still a favorite after all these years, not only for historic reasons, cause although not in good health Elvis voice was still incredible! The producers have done a new approach on these recordings, and decided to make a more enjoyable version by cutting out all the fans comments, and edit the performances to one live concert, using 24Bit 96KHZ audio for the best possible sound. Most edits sound better then the original ones ... Including all songs from the original double album, plus five rare MULTI track bonus recordings, including a rocking “Mystery Train/Tiger Man” bringing the total to 33 tracks! Presented in six panel digipack, with artwork matching the original release, including beautiful rare pictures. There still are lots and lots of new releases.... some should be avoided. CMT always has something special, so you are really buying new material, not available elsewhere! “So just enjoy yourself, and leave the driving to us!” LIMITED to 500 copies this release will be sold out soon!

Straight Arrow has announced a new 2CD: On Fire in Florida. This contains audience recordings of the shows in Hollywood on February 12, and West Palm Beach on February 13, 1977.


Straight Arrow har annonsert en ny 2CD: On Fire in Florida. Denne inneholder publikumsopptak av showene i Hollywood den 12. februar og West Palm Beach den 13. februar 1977.


From the label: Straight Arrow is pleased to bring you a new 2 CD dedicated to Elvis' February ’77 tour. The Hollywood, February 12th, 1977 show was first released in 1994, 23 years have passed since then and now is the right time for a proper re-release. Straight Arrow went back to the original cassette and restored it from scratch. The West Palm Beach, February 13th, 1977 show was previously released from an incomplete soundboard source. Our COMPLETE recording has been taken directly from a previously unreleased original audience-recorded mastertape. Both shows were recorded by the same person. In spite of Elvis’ unhealthy look especially at the beginning of tour, his concerts were solid and playlists were variable, incl. some rarely performed songs, actually, it was best tour of 1977. As usual, this new release will be presented in a beautiful 4-panel double digipak that includes photos taken in Hollywood and West Palm Beach and newspaper reviews of both concerts. If you liked our release “Got Me Workin’ Boss Man – 40 Years After Vol. 1” (SA/SP 2016-44-02), we'll bet that you will also love 40 Years After Vol. 2. As usual - it’s new STRAIGHT ARROW so you know what to expect!
