Memphis Recording Service just released a CD full with live recordings of the 1950s.
The presentation is simple but tasteful. Three iconic pictures of The King on stage delivered by Joe Tunzi are almost worth the price of this release. The trackinformation is as complete as possible and well presented.
We all know these live recordings by now. Most are from the different Hayride performances. Disregarding the often subpar sound quality I still enjoy most of them because of the enthusiastic, energetic way Elvis brought them. Those that couldn’t afford of get FTD’s masterpiece A Boy From Tupelo have a cheap way with this release to get the only “new” song on that set, Little Mama. If that isn’t enough MRS brings the very good sounding I Forgot To Remember To Forget (available on Youtube for several months now) on this disc.
Overall the sound is as good as you might expect from these sources, there is no spectacular improvement compared to previous outings.
A cheap way to get a new song in a beautiful jacket.
