A Dog's CD

In the latest issue of The Man And His Music Ernst Jorgensen says: "We are considering an album of songs with a reference to dogs in either lyric or title. As you know, the dog is man's best friend and we believe we can target this album to a lot of dog lovers throughout the world." Possible tracklist: A Dog's Life - Double Trouble - Got a Lot o' Livin' to Do - Hard Knocks - Hot Dog - Hound Dog - Look out Broadway - Mean Woman Blues - Old Shep - Shake, Rattle and Roll - Shake, Rattle and Roll/ Flip, Flop and Fly - Three Corn Patches - Tiger Man - What'd I Say - bonus track : Raised on Rock Before other websites are going to deny this release: we believe it is a joke (and a very funny one), since it was the answer to the question "So, after a 3xCd gospel set, a 2xCD gospel set and a single CD gospel set, what's the next step - half a CD of gospel songs?".

I like your thinking Scotch. And of course no such release would be complete without the great pause before he says 'Yeah' at the end of Trouble :-)

I already own "Dog Gone Elvis" on an "import" CD, and I really feel that FTD should release material we have not previously seen on any bootleg, CDr, official release, possible future boot, future CDr or in any private collector's hands(so as not to devalue their collection). Therefore, cancel the Dog FTD and release "Silent Elvis", which would contain a selection of pauses Elvis has in songs. My favorite moment of silence is after the "your" and before "teddy bear" in "Teddy Bear". The anticipation of what the next pause would be on the CD might just be too much to take, but I think we are ready for this ultimate CD. Thank you. (pause) Thank you very much.

elvis will always "sell" no matter what they decide to release(good or bad)and 'yes' i found this dog thing very funny but could'n't help thinking that maybe they are really gonna release a doggy cd or something like it?-who cares,if its elvis then i'm buying it,and so will countless others too.history has proved that elvis music sells with or without promotion and if such an album is released it will certainly find a market and sell, sell ,sell and whats bad about that man??. elvis is elvis-simple as that.

Of course it's a joke. Personally I'm pretty happy about the release schedule. Not every release is what I consider a perfect choice, but then it would be unrealistic for any fan to expect their own preferences to be catered for every time. And what's the deal with complaining about a Sun collection? It's the 50th anniversary for goodness sake, why wouldn't and why shouldn't they mark it? Sometimes fans have such high expectations. There is a finite amount of material, we have to accept that. Think about the position RCA were in when compiling Elvis' last album before his death, Moody Blue. Even then they were so short of material that they had to add live tracks to pad it out. 27 yrs later, we still get quality and regular releases - notably FTD - but of course there is going to be duplication of material. I can also imagine how many fans would have been criticising Ernst had the 50th anniversary passed without it being marked with a Sun release.

Be careful they might just do it out of spite, they could release it as a follow up to Elvis Sings For Children(& Grown Ups Too).

you guys don't think i believe this. I do know it was a joke. I was having a laugh about it who in there right mind would believe they are releasing a doggy cd anyway. I just wanted them to release a cd for goat lovers instead ! Just kidding

It was meant as a joke, people. Lighten up! Get a grip!
Wake up and smell the coffee/tea!

Seeing most of these reactions I wonder how Ernst is capable of going on. The general opinion of Elvis fans being ignorant fools is underlined once more.

I'd be barking mad not to pre-order a copy. As for a 3CD gospel set - a 2Cd gospel set a single etc - What's next ? Why not shove the whole lot into a deluxe multi CD mega box set ? No Ernst, that was my idea of a joke.

You know, Instead of Ernst sitting back and laughing at how gullable we all are to have fallen for this joke, he ought to examine why we would fall for it---because they have handled Elvis' music so stupidy in the past that this ridiculous idea for an album seems totally plausible coming from them, and their Christmas rereleases and 5 gospel compilations and more Sun collections. This Dog's album is a joke because it's almost stupid enough to be something they would actually do.

Well actually it wouldn't be the first time Ernst denied something before it really came true. So I wouldn't wonder about this one.

Ernst, you should know by now that you are not allowed to make jokes! Anything you say will be taken as fact, and abuse will be forthcoming. Not everyone shares your sense of humour, which is a shame. Elvis believed in having fun, but some of his followers have lost sight of that word.

Ernst, We need to really take some time and think things thru. This is the 50th anniv. of one of the most important moments in Pop culture History. At FYE's around the country, they carry about 8 Elvis titles, and this is what we need. Less is more. We can not confuse the new young fans, and the Elvis Catalogue is finally shaping up. I see 2 gospel sets, two or 3 Concerts including MSG and ALoha, The SUn sessions, and Elvis30's and 2nd to none. I think BMG is starting to do the right job. We should carry about 15 by 2007, and that 's it.

What's all this moaning about??? IT IS A JOKE. There will be no dog-themed compilation. Some guys here are really square.
pacer1965 (profilecontact) wrote on May 29, 2004report abuse
God am i really reading this? It has to be a joke. Next they will releasing a cd for goat lovers with petunia the gardeners daughter on it. Someone please pass the doggy bag
J. (profilecontact) wrote on May 28, 2004report abuse
Oh my god! I'm gonna die laughing... this can't be happening. This is the best example that Ernst is just a moneygrabber, that's the point. Instead of releasing some new exciting stuff we all want, all we get is the same stuff and the 369th compliation cd. Now about dogs, what's next? "Elvis Songs While You're On The Toilet" Great!! You're my hero Ernst..

NO! NO! Please NOT another CD with Old Shep!!!!!!

C'mon! What is this? It's not even April. This has to be a joke.

Of course it's a joke. If it's not someone is barking mad. Sorry, couldn't resist.
