Bilko's Gold Cuts

The Bilko label plans to release a compilation from some of their best CDs titled "Bilko's Gold Cuts". The CD comes with a 12 pages booklet highlighting the history of the label and affiliated labels. This release should feature two previously unreleased soundboard recordings and one unreleased studio cut. The concept behind this CD is somewhat different to the Fort Baxter's greatest hits release "Thank You Very Much". It will contain several tracks that were never used on any Bilko outings or related labels although they had these recordings. All the songs that were originally featured on Bilko's "More Pure Elvis The Lost Album" and used on this compilation are now at their correct recording speed. Track listing 01 Fame And Fortune (take 14, previously unreleased) / 02 Shoppin' Around (takes 9,10) /03 Working On The Building (take 2) / 04 In Your Arms (take 1) / 05 Little Sister (take 6) / 06 Suspicion (takes 3,4) / 07 Gonna Get Back Home Somehow (take 1) / 08 Blue River (takes 1,2) / 09 Wings Of An Angel (jam) / U.S. Male (take 10) / 10 You'll Think Of Me (take 7) / 11 Power Of My Love (False starts, take 1) / 12 Any Day Now (take 2) / 13 Sweet Caroline (Las Vegas, NV February 23, 1970 closing show, previously unreleased soundboard) / 14 When I'm Over You (June 7, 1970, long version) . / 15 That's All Right (Blues version July 15, 1970) / 16 Stranger In The Crowd (July 29, 1970) / 17 Polk A Little Sock Salad (August 10, 1970) / 18 I Just Can't Help Believin' (August 10, 1970) / 19 Never Been To Spain (Las Vegas, NV February 1972 exact date unknown, previously unreleased soundboard) / 20 Johnny B.

Be nice if the "That's All Right" [blues version] was in better audio quality. Before, it had some distortion on Elvis' mic.

Can´t wait, this was the label that started it all some 15 years ago. I´ll support them forever. Back in 1995 I received the first volume of There´s Always Me and it just blew me away. Marvellous packaging and previously unheard recordings. Bring it on....sgt. Ernie!!
