StereoFTD (Follow That Dream), Sony Music's Official Elvis Presley Collectors Label. Follow That Dream Special Edition re-release of Elvis' January, 1971 album, Elvis Country a 2 disc set in the FTD Classic Album series. Recorded at RCA Studio B in Nashville in 1970. This set is packaged in a 7" digipack featuring the original album art. Released at the same time will be Nevada Nights a 2 CD set of soundboard's from August 1974, including the opening show.

How do you follow up an album like From Elvis In Memphis and the singles and follow up album that flowed from the 1969 recording sessions at Chip's Moman's Memphis American Sound Studio's? In February 1970 RCA recorded Elvis live in Las Vegas and released the classic live album, On Stage, but it was not until June of that year that Elvis re-entered a studio to cut an album proper. Elvis Country was the result, released in January 1971, it was Elvis' only real concept album and in my opinion does rate as Elvis best album.

In June 1970, Elvis Presley held a five-day recording marathon, during which he completed 34 songs. The impressive results of these sessions allowed RCA to create two thematically coherent Elvis albums, Love Letters From Elvis and Elvis Country (other tracks from these sessions appear on That's The Way it Is and Elvis Now).
