New FTD CD; Elvis’ Golden Records

FTD has announced a new 2CD in their series of “classic albums”; Elvis’ Golden Records. This set contains the original album and outtakes.


FTD har annonsert en ny 2CD i serien med klassiske album; Elvis’ Golden Records. Denne utgivelsen inneholder det originale albumet og en rekke outtakes.


From the label: With U.S. sales of more than six million, and an even higher figure for rest of world, ELVIS’ GOLDEN RECORDS is Elvis’ biggest selling album except for his 1970 budget album ELVIS’ CHRISTMAS ALBUM. It was compiled from eight #1 A-sides, along with five B-sides and the track “Love Me” from his second LP ELVIS. Collectively they represent more than 20 million singles sold in the USA alone, resulting in 17x platinum certifications. Elvis' best-selling EP ELVIS (EPA 992) sold more than one million copies in the USA and was RIAA certified double platinum. For this FTD release we have added four songs that easily could have been included; “Blue Suede Shoes,” “My Baby Left Me,” “I Was The One” and “Playing For Keeps.” Additionally, stereo versions available in RCA’s vault are added of four songs from the album. Unfortunately, most of the outtakes from the sessions that produced these songs have been lost, so the bonus disc includes all the outtakes of four songs recorded during the period in January 1957.
