New FTD CD; A Date With Elvis

FTD has just announced a new 2CD release in their series of “Classic Albums”; A Date With Elvis. This contains masters, outtakes and home recordings.


FTD har nettopp annonsert en ny 2CD i serien med klassiske album; A Date With Elvis. Denne inneholder mastere, outtakes og hjemmeinnspillinger.


From the label; A DATE WITH ELVIS, released in July 1959, was the second of three compilation albums released by RCA while Elvis was serving in the U.S. Army. The aim of all three albums, apart from keeping Elvis’ name in the public eye, was to collect recordings that had only been out on 45 rpm records in order to take advantage of the fast growing Long Playing album market. This 7” digipack 2-CD set also features stereo masters and ‘fly-on-the-wall’ persona; recordings made during his Army time in Germany.
