What we get here are 23 tracks (including two tracks of dialogue) of which no less than 14 are previously unreleased. The parts of the TV-special in focus here are the June 25th so called 'dress rehearsal' and the June 29th, 6 PM 'stand up' show, supplemented with a few studio tracks.

Elvis On Tour : The Rehearsals FTD CD

Elvis On Tour : The Rehearsals FTD CD StereoFTD (Follow That Dream), Sony Music's Official Elvis Presley Collectors Label. Elvis On Tour - The Rehearsals features recordings from RCA’s studios in Hollywood in March 1972, which were conducted in association with that year's MGM concert film Elvis on Tour. The CD covers Elvis rehearsals for his upcoming tour, combining classic Elvis live repertoire with some of his new studio material. There have been a lot of 'rehearsal' Elvis CDs to come out, but this one is by far the best. First of all, it almost sounds like a studio album. The songs are mostly complete without a bunch of mistakes and a do-overs and most sound really great. There isn't any joking around, each track pretty much jumps strait to the next song.

3000 South Paradise Road 2 CD : FTD Special Edition / Classic Album 7" Presentation

3000 South Paradise Road 2 CD : FTD Special Edition / Classic Album 7" Presentation FTD (Follow That Dream), Sony Music's Official Elvis Presley Collectors Label. FTD release of 3000 South Paradise Road a 2 disc 7" 'Classic Album' format with a 16-page booklet. This release takes a closer look at Elvis' engagement at the Las Vegas Hilton with a soundboard recording in August of 1972. The main disc is from the dinner show on August 12, and the second disc is culled from the rehearsals on August 4th, the date of the opening of the engagement. As with '48 Hours To Memphis', this release has been prepared by Robert Frieser and Hans Slebos, who once again has done a fabulous job of collecting information and materials for the project. There will be additional information in the next few weeks. '3000 South Paradise Road' provides a unique experience of Elvis rehearsing, 6 hours before the opening night at the Las Vegas Hilton on August 4, 1972. As disc 2 is captured on a personal tape recorder, the sonic quality is below standards, but historical significance more than compensates for its audio limitations.

This is a unique performance by Elvis with stand out songs, What Now My Love, My Way, An American Trilogy and Fever. The quality of the music having a separation contributing to the overall performance that one normally only associates with stereo recordings. FTD have chosen to present this concert in their 7" size Classic Album packaging and it comes with a fantastic booklet with liner notes that are very well written and well worth reading, and it is nice to see Elvis on stage in a two piece non-jumpsuit outfit, clearly still in his prime.

It is clear how much Elvis valued and wanted to perform What Now My Love this day, August 12, 1972 with his comment about getting serious before starting the song, and he performs in near flawlessly. And of particular interest are Elvis' comments after My Way, where he says 'that's a very good song ... I wouldn't want to associate it with my own personal life ... now the end is near and all that jazz... it's a nice song, it's okay for Sinatra but ... I haven't even ate it up and spit it out yet, still chewing on it ... no it's a good song ... And indeed as indicated above, What Now My Love and My Way : two great performances, and totally unique. So in a word, do I recommend this release : YES!

From Hawaii To Las Vegas FTD 5" 1973 Soundboard Dress Rehearsal CD

From Hawaii To Las Vegas FTD 5" 1973 Soundboard Dress Rehearsal CD FTD (Follow That Dream), Sony Music's Official Elvis Presley Collectors Label. FTD 5" digi pack release, 'From Hawaii To Las Vegas' of an originally recorded soundboard recording of Elvis' January 25, 1973 Las Vegas dress rehearsal for his January/February 1973 season at The Las Vegas Hilton. The rough audio quality is more than compensated by the fascinating insight into how Elvis worked in order to create his shows. With little talk, and a lot of music, we are invited to a first row presentation of what he had in mind, and yet he decided to change the repertoire the very next day. Among the many songs is 'Separate Ways' - rehearsed with and without the orchestra - a song that Elvis chose to never perform in public. So a very interesting release, one the likes of we have not had before.
