Among FTD’s latest escapes is an album with left-overs from the 1969 sessions: From Elvis At American Sound Studio.
A great candid shot of Elvis decorates the front and in the booklet we can find some more of these. Thanks to Sandi I happen to have prints of some of them but it never bores me to see them. Furthermore the booklet is as usual, well documented and decorated.
The left-overs I mentioned are for different reasons left-overs. Some because of the strange single/album strategy RCA used in those years, some because they were not good enough and some because they didn’t fit on the FTD releases of From Elvis In Memphis or Back In Memphis, I guess. All together we got a pretty strange mixture of great songs, not so great songs and even unfinished songs.
We all know the content by heart, so that makes it hard to say something original about them, so I won’t even try it. The sound is great, it is a good addition to the previous two releases in the classic albums series.
Elvis Sings Left-overs and more… is a nice release, but does certainly not belong to the better FTDs.
