New Box Set; Silver Screen Treasures 1962-1965

An unknown label has just announced a new 5CD Box set; Silver Screen Treasures 1962-1965. This contains studio masters, outtakes and demos of movie songs from a selection of mid 60s soundtracks.


Et ukjent plateselskap har annonsert en ny 5CD boks; Silver Screen Treasures 1962-1965. Denne inneholder mastere, outtakes og demoer av sanger fra et utvalg sekstitalls filmer.


From the label; This marvelous 5 cd set is something special. With 5 individual jewelcases, packed in lp sized box including oversized booklet this set will bring you back to the old days of cd/vinyl packaging. Something deluxe! This release features mostly alternate versions from all of Elvis movie sessions during 1962-1965. A fantastic release with a lot of surprises, in a fantastic sound and running order. Last but not least is disc 5, featuring (mostly) rejected acetates of songs written for Elvis movies but (mostly) were never used. A very limited edition so get it while you can.

DISC 5 - THE DEMO ACETATES: WHEN A NEW ELVIS MOVIE WAS CREATED, COLONEL PARKER USED TO ASK SEVERAL SONGWRITERS TO WRITE SONGS FOR THE MOVIE. MOSTLY THE COLONEL GAVE THEM A TITLE OR A DESCRIPTION OF THE SCENE AND THE SONGWRTERS UNDERSTOOD WHAT KIND OF A SONG THE COLONEL NEEDED. THIS SO CALLED ‘DEMOS’ WERE THEN RECORDED (AT EXPENSES OF THE SONGWRITERS) ON AN ACETATE DISC AND SENDED TO THE COLONEL FOR APPROVAL. OBVIOUSLY THERE WAS CONCURRENCE BETWEEN THE DIFFERENT SONGWRITERS, SOME OF THE SONGS WERE REJECTED, SOME WERE ACTUALLY RECORDED BY ELVIS. THE ACTUAL DEMOS ARE UNIQUE, MOSTLY THERE WERE ONLY ONE OR TWO ACETATES MADE AND DUE TO THE MATERIAL (WAX ON A METAL PLATE) THEY WERE VERY FRAGILE AND COULD ONLY BE PLAYED A FEW TIMES. THIS CD CONTAINS NEWLY DISCOVERED DEMO RECORDINGS, ALL OF THESE RECORDINGS WERE RECORDED & WRITTEN FOR THE ELVIS MOVIES. SOME WERE NOT USED FOR OBVIOUS REASONS, SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY WERE NOT GOOD ENOUGH, AND SOME U CAN ACTUALLY IMAGINE ELVIS SINGING THEM. FUN IN ACAPULCO IS ALMOST A COPY OF THE DEMO, EXCEPT FOR SOME LYRICS THAT WERE CHANGED DURING THE RECORDING. MOST OF THESE ACETATES COME FROM THE DOLORES FULLER COLLECTION AND WERE WRITTEN BY HER AND COMPOSE BY BEN WEISSMAN, EXCEPT FOR FUN IN ACAPULCO (BEN WEISMAN/SID WAYNE), NIGHT LIFE (GIANT/BAUME/KAYE), I NEED SOMEBODY TO LEAN ON (POMUS/SHUMAN) & LOVE ON THE ROCKS (TEPPER/BENNETT). SIT BACK AND ENJOY! SOME OF THESE SONGS MIGHT TURN OUT TO BE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT THEN YOU EXPECT.
