Recently released on CD is the 2 L.P. set “Between Takes With Elvis”. Was that a good addition to the Elvis CD catalogue?
We can be very quick about the design, is there any? A white booklet with only the title diagonally. The back contains a list of the content, and some fine print we could just read.
According to the fine print on the back the original vinyl release of this 2 CD-set was a special promotional item from Creative Radio Shows. It was conceived and produced by Jerry Osborne.
About the content we can be brief too. This release contains audio fragments from 1972 of Elvis On Tour, getting ready to go on stage, rehearsing, clowning around with the members of the Memphis Mafia and talking to fans. Probably all of released before, and more complete, on other "talking' and "On Tour" releases. But it is too unstructured to determine exacly.
To be honest, we didn’t finish listening to this release. Listening to two hours of this kind of recordings in a row was too much. We simply miss a storyline. Perhaps it was an idea to have someone tell the story and illustrate it with the actual Elvis.
