Record Store Day 2021

February 15, 2021 | Music

On Record Store Day 2021, June 11th 2021, the French LMLP record label will release the picture disc LP ‘Sings The Mad Professor’ – Elvis’ nickname for Ben Weisman who (co-)wrote 57 songs for Elvis Presley – and the double LP ‘Cafe Europa En Uniforme’ (‘G.I. Blues’) on green and pink cornetto colored vinyl. 

‘ELVIS UK3 – Ultimate CD Guide’ Out Soon: Coming Soon from co-authors John Townson and Gordon Minto the new in-depth book ‘Elvis UK3 The Ultimate Guide to Elvis Presley’s CD Releases 1983-2005’. The 1400 page book (containing over a million words, plus 4,000 plus black and white and colour illustrations), provides the definitive guide to Elvis’s UK compact disc releases and details the development of the medium from the 3 CD set The Legend – the world’s first ever Elvis compact disc in 1983 – in meticulous and unprecedented detail. 
Every single, RCA, BMG, FTD and third party album (all 450 of them!) issued in the UK up to 2005 are written about individually in comprehensive detail, arranged in chronological order, carefully cross-referenced, charting and describing company and industry developments along the way. It has been painstakingly researched, and features many contributions by former RCA / BMG personnel who helped with key background information. 
The book also includes sections on various artist CDs containing Elvis material and company promos, including BMG in-house CDs etc. The huge song index is presented in forensic detail, indicating exactly where each master and outtake can be located and, in the case of live performances, when and where they were recorded.

EIN has glimpsed a few preview pages and found the thorough in-depth research and comprehensive cross-referencing truly fascinating. It is a must for serious collectors! – Release details soon.

From Memphis to Taipeh’ OUT NOW: The book ‘From Memphis to Taipei – A Reference Guide to the Colorful Magic of Elvis’ Asian Vinyl’by Dick Dekker (‘Bootleg Elvis’ book) and Ferry Van Der Werf is OUT Now. The limited print run is 500 copies worldwide.
It was in the late 1950s that the first Asian records featuring Elvis’ music were released. Hundreds of records followed afterwards many with beautiful covers in different variations and with beautifully coloured vinyl. However no collector’s guide to Elvis’ Asian vinyl has ever been published. There has never even been an information booklet on these Elvis albums. 
So this new book is the very first reference guide to Elvis’ vinyl releases in Asia. This volume examinest the 10″ and 12″ vinyl releases from six major Asian countries: Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan and Thailand.
In the book fans can discover where, why and for whom these records were made. And there were plenty of Elvis fans.
The cover images and label designs are presented in large format so you can check the design and often the interesting spelling mistakes.

MRS – SUMMER FESTIVAL 70-THE REHERSALS

MRS- – THE REHEARSALS

PREORDER HERE ! https://www.memphisrecordingservice.com/

MRS will release a 3CD Deluxe titled ‘SUMMER FESTIVAL 1970 – THE REHEARSALS’ on 12th March 2021.

The CD’s contain rehearsal highlights from one of the most memorable periods in Elvis’ career – his captivating performances at The International Hotel Las Vegas in the summer of 1970. These truly historical recordings, remastered and restored capture the raw and early development of songs that were performed weeks later in Las Vegas. The accompanying 40-page booklet includes rare photographs taken at some of these rehearsal sessions.  

As usual MRS has spared NO expense in our remastering techniques. For the first time ever all, the tracks listed have had repairs and restorations having now the same mastering techniques, used on such recent MRS releases such as ‘Made in Germany’ and ‘Such a Night in Pearl Harbor’. A sample sound of this will circulate on forums within days of this announcement.  

The 180g 3LP Gatefold version will be announced soon.

Please note: This is a prequel to a series of releases coming out this year from MRS. In that series will be a totally new and unreleased soundboard from the Summer Festival in 1970. A recording never heard before, stay tuned.

‘Elvis – Oh, Happy Day’ New Import CD: Paradise Road Records presents ‘Oh, Happy Day’ – Elvis live at the International hotel in Las Vegas. This cd contains a great audience recording from the August 14, 1970 Midnight Show PLUS camera sound recordings from this show (from the MGM tapes).
Elvis is singing great songs like ‘Oh, Happy Day’, ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’, ‘Folsom Prison Blues’ and ‘I Walk The Line’ .. A very remarkable show. Elvis was in a really goofy mood and introduced himself as Johnny Cash. He seemed to be really enjoying this show, despite the cameras and the house lights being up so MGM could film him. He changed the words to the several songs and really had fun messing them up.
This show was first released on ‘The Man In White – Volume 3’ released in 2003. Now -18 year later- all performances have been newly remastered and speed corrected where necessary. And for the first time on cd the camera sound recordings of this show. Including a booklet with information and photos from this great show! PLUS some background information about these recordings.

‘Elvis Presley Sings Flaming Star’ New Import CD: A special edition release from the Elvis One label with 38 tracks from the movie ‘Flaming Star’.
Including ‘Flaming Star’ and ‘Summer Kisses, Winter Tears’ (mono and stereo masters), the unedited master of ‘Flaming Star’, many alternate takes, seven original radio spots from the movie, the acetate recording of the composite master of ‘Black Star’, and more! All tracks in the best possible sound.
This limited edition comes with a 12 pages booklet with photos and recording information.

EIN Note: 38 tracks from only five songs, including 16 versions / takes of ‘Summer Kisses, Winter Tears’!

Houston Astrodome Sunday March 03, 1974’ VINYL: A Special Deluxe Combo LP / CD from the “VV” label for the first time in vinyl, of the show of Houston 3th of March 1974 and including the unreleased AUDIENCE recording Tulsa OK, Oral Roberts University March 2, 1974, included as a bonus.
As always the VV attitude is to present Elvis at the peak of his possibility and without a doubt, this double set presents Elvis still at his best. After shedding some extra weight the man is ready to face his first tour of 1974. March 1974 started with two great shows in Tulsa and then departed to Houston for two shows in the Astrodome where Elvis beat his own audience record from 1970. The Houston show it’s a usual one where Elvis faces a large distant adoring crowd without the orchestra.
Here is presented completely remastered for the first time in heavy glorious vinyl.
At the same time, we are glad to include as a bonus CD an unreleased Audience Recording of the previous day in Tulsa. The sound is decent. If you want to live the atmosphere of an Elvis concert in 2021 this is the right tape. We can guarantee that Elvis was greeted with incredible enthusiasm;

‘Elvis Rocks The Garden’ New Import: From the Straight Arrow label.. in 2012 we released the great June 9th Madison Square Garden NYC concert (CD “Left a Good Job in The City”. This, now classic, is totally sold out for many years. Now we have restored this recording again from scratch. In 2020 we obtained two quality tapes of other NYC concerts from June 10th Evening and June 11th, Afternoon.
Now all three shows are released in one deluxe 3CD set.
We are fully aware that the June 10th Evening show was released several times officially by RCA from the professional multi-track tapes. Nevertheless, we have found an alternative source – an excellent audience-recorded tape! It brings you a whole new listening experience! The incredible audience reaction to every song will blow you away! The June 11th Afternoon show was released in 2010 from an inferior source. Once again, we have found an excellent audience-provided alternative. 
Both the June 10th E/S and 11th A/S were recorded by the same person, using a reel-to-reel tape deck instead of usual the cassette recorder. 
Presented in the usual top notch digipack

‘Elvis Presley News Report’ 2020: The Year in review.
From Elvis super-fan Emiel Maier, a look back at all the serious news that was ELVIS in this crazy year of 2020.

#ElvisPresleyNewsReport @Emiel Maier DON’T FORGET TO TAKE A LOOK AT MY MOST RECENT NEWS REPORT ON MY CHANNEL. If you like this posting then please inform other kindred spirits (like fellow Elvis-fans!). (Spread the word!) THANKS to all who have put this EPNR on their Facebook page.

‘From Memphis to Taipeh’: The book ‘From Memphis to Taipei – A Reference Guide to the Colorful Magic of Elvis’ Asian Vinyl’ by Dick Dekker (‘Bootleg Elvis’ book) and Ferry Van Der Werf should be published next month, January 2021. The limited print run is 750 copies worldwide.
It was in the late 1950s that the first Asian records featuring Elvis’ music were released. Hundreds of records followed afterwards many with beautiful covers in different variations and with beautifully coloured vinyl. However no collector’s guide to Elvis’ Asian vinyl has ever been published. There has never even been an information booklet on these Elvis albums. 
So this new book is the very first reference guide to Elvis’ vinyl releases in Asia. This volume examinest the 10″ and 12″ vinyl releases from six major Asian countries: Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan and Thailand.
In the book fans can discover where, why and for whom these records were made. And there were plenty of Elvis fans.
The cover images and label designs are presented in large format so you can check the design and often the interesting spelling mistakes.

But in 1958, the songs for the film were recorded only in MONO. With the release of the new CD “ELVIS KING CREOLE & MORE” engineers have used new, state-of-the-art audio technology to transform these monaural recordings into lifelike STEREO for the first time! 

The result is STUNNING. 

You can now hear more detail in the original performances—musical elements you never noticed before. Elvis sounds fantastic, his voice rich and clear…as if he just recorded these numbers today!

In addition to 11 songs from “King Creole,” there are 9 bonus tracks, all of which have been brilliantly converted to STEREO. 

This is part of a series of 4 CDs beginning with the widely acclaimed “Elvis Reborn: New Mono to Stereo Mixes”(30 songs); its sequel, “Elvis Reborn Vol. 2” (30 songs) and “Elvis His First Christmas Album Now In Stereo”(20 songs). All use “DES” (Digitally Extracted Stereo) technology to update Elvis’s catalog.

Don’t miss the latest release…a trend-setting breakthrough to enhance classic hits!

A new cd release from the revisited label with Elvis live at Von Braun Civic Center. Saturday. May 31, 1975 (8:30 PM). Huntsville, AL. A great soundboard recording released only once before on a single disc many years ago. A show with great songs like “Hawaiian Wedding Song” and “I’m Leavin'”. The beginning of the evening show was not recorded but as a bonus we’ve included recordings from the matinee show one day later (Sunday. June 1, 1975. Huntsville, AL.), including “How Great Thou Art” and a medley of early hits. Elvis was truly inspired by the superb reaction he received in Huntsville, selling out five shows. These are recordings from show number 3 and 4 in very good sound quality. This is a limited edition soundboard release to celebrate te 45th Anniversary of this great event! Including a booklet with photos and information about these shows.

For the first time anywhere, hear Elvis’s first Christmas album in STEREO!

Using new, state of the art audio technology, the original monaural tracks contained on Presley’s 1957 holiday album have been skillfully transformed into brilliant, lifelike stereo, using the DES (Digitally Extracted Stereo) method. The sound is stunning! You can hear Elvis better and there is richer detail in the music!

With total sales of over 20 million copies worldwide, Elvis’s holiday offering remains the best-selling Christmas album of all time. This new CD brings this wonderful classic to life as never before! There are also 8 bonus tracks converted from mono to stereo, for a total of 20 songs that never sounded better!

Fascinating liner notes reveal the story behind the big hit “Blue Christmas,” (how it was written on a commuter train, and how Presley deliberately tried to louse up the song…but it was a hit anyway!) Then there’s the controversy caused when composer Irving Berlin tried to block radio stations from playing Elvis’s version of “White Christmas.” Also read about songs that were commissioned by Elvis for this release, and learn about the tunes that Presley arranged himself. Includes rare color photos.

This wonderful, historic treasure is a FIRST for Elvis fans.

This follows in the tradition of 2020’s widely acclaimed CDs “Elvis Reborn: New Mono To Stereo Mixes” (which had over 500,000 downloads its first month) and the sequel, “Elvis Reborn Vol. 2” — both of which contain 30 songs (total of 60) — classic numbers previously available only in monaural but now in glorious stereo.

‘From Elvis In Nashville’ Review
artists make the impact on music that Elvis Presley did. Active from 1953 until his death aged 42 in 1977, Elvis conquered the charts and made a name for himself in movies too. With plenty of records under his belt, Elvis is beloved across the world and as popular today as he ever was. Fans have become accustomed to new releases from the King since his death and this week Sony Music is releasing ‘From Elvis in Nashville’, a collection that captures his epic five day/night run at RCA’s Studio B in Nashville during June 1970 (with an additional session in September of the same year).
‘From Elvis in Nashville’ is available on multiple formats but this review is based on the 4CD boxset that features a mix of master recordings and outtakes. This release marks the first time the master recordings have been released and they’ve been newly mixed by engineer Matt Ross-Spring (John Prine, Jason Isbell). The songs recorded during these sessions formed the core of his three most successful studio albums from the 1970s – ‘Elvis: That’s the Way It Is’, ‘Elvis Country (I’m 10,000 Years Old)’ and ‘Love Letters from Elvis’.
The first two discs are the master recordings of the songs that would eventually go on to be included across those albums, and for long-time fans of Elvis, it’s a chance to hear the songs in a new and raw way.  ‘Twenty Days and Twenty Nights’ is an early standout, with Elvis’ distinctive voice stepping into crooner territory, while ‘I Was Born About Ten Thousand Years Ago’ has a Country-leaning sound that suited the King. Elvis’ version of ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’ sounds magnificent in this collection, showing off his majestic tone to great effect.
Elvis always said he was at his best live and with a band, and these masters certainly reinforce that claim. He really could sing anything and his versatility is highlighted across the 40 tracks on the first two discs. ‘Got My Mojo Working / Keep Your Hands Off It’ is pure, classic Elvis, ‘Just Pretend’ is a showcase for that perfect vibrato Elvis always brought to his songs, and ‘Tomorrow Never Comes’ is the perfect example of how loose and engaged Elvis could sound in a relaxed band environment.
For a lot of fans, they’ll be drawn to the set’s second two discs. Casual fans won’t be all that interested in outtakes but the hardcore fans will listen to them intently, hoping to pick out the differences from the recorded version they’ve had in their collection for years. With candid audio from the studio, you hear Elvis talking to the musicians and his producer before launching into the songs. The 32 songs give a real glimpse into what Elvis was like in the studio and it’s pretty fascinating.
‘I’ve Lost You’ (Take 1) feels like you’re witnessing something truly special and that feeling comes on many of the songs on these two discs. There’s a rehearsal version of ‘You Don’t Have To Say You Love Me’, which is pretty spine-tingling, and on ‘Mary in the Morning’ (Takes 3-4) you hear the band being given direction before Elvis kicks into action. One of the highlights for me is the powerful ‘The Sound of Your Cry’ (Take 3) because Elvis sounds absolutely magnificent. Other standout moments include ‘The Fool’ (Take 1), ‘Snowbird’ (Take 1) and ‘There Goes My Everything’ (Take 1).
With the wealth of material on this release, I could go on for days but I feel you’ve likely got the impression that I consider this to be a must-have addition to your Elvis collection. As I said before, casual fans may not find enough here to hold their interest but the hardcore Elvis fans will feel like Christmas has come early. Elvis was, and still is, such an intriguing figure and hearing glimpses of him in the studio – producing some of his best work – feels like an absolute treat. If you don’t want so much material, try the vinyl release which packs 22 highlights onto 2LPs.

Night of the Dragon’ New Import CD: Straight Arrow is pleased to bring you a new double CD dedicated to Elvis’ Summer Las Vegas ’74 season, the Wednesday, August 28th 1974 Dinner & Midnight shows. The 1974 summer season was always rated as controversial due to Elvis in-between-songs comments in several shows. Nevertheless, musically, all shows were very good.
These August 28th recordings are directly from recently discovered first generation copies of the original audience-recorded mastertapes, never before in circulation!
Both play lists included several songs unique to this season: “It’s Midnight”, “Big Boss Man” and funky “If You Talk in Your Sleep,” the latter with a karate demo midway. His song selection demonstrated his expertise in a great variety of musical genres most of all, perhaps the stirring performances of “How Great Thou Art.” Worth to mention is the rare inclusion of “My Boy” which was presented only once in 1974 (by request).
Presented in a deluxe 4-panel double digipack with a collection of images taken on stage during Elvis’ Summer Las Vegas ’74 season.

‘Ol’ Swivel Hips Still Wovs’ Em’ New Import Box-set:This 1977 deluxe box set ‘Ol’ Swivel Hips Still Wovs’ Em’ (EIN comments what the hell does “wovs them” mean, presumably “Wows them” is what they meant) is focused on the third tour of 1977 April-May 1977. Elvis’ live performances in 1977 are often criticized and not without a reason. But Elvis was still offering his fans an enjoying time, the magic of seeing Elvis in person probably exceeded the fact he often delivered a standard and sometimes even mediocre performance. The reactions of the spectators are very telling. They scream, shout and get wild for their hero. This set mostly contains soundboard & multitrack recordings but also contains two rare audience recordings. These high quality audience recordings of the April 27 & 30 performances deserve a place in this box set. 
This 6 cd set includes a wonderful booklet with many rare and unpublished photo’s.
EIN Notes: Nothing here not released previously – and two cds are 1977 Audience Recordings.
From previous bootlegs ‘Shaking Up the Great Lakes’ to ‘Trouble In Saginaw’ surely we all have this before.
