Elvis' Golden Records, Volume 3

“ELVIS GOLDEN RECORDS VOL. 3” is a new 2-CD release in FTD's classic album series.  It features a 7” digipack with 12-page booklet. By the time it was released in August 1963, no one in rock ‘n’ roll up to that point, other than Elvis, had ever legitimately earned a second ‘greatest hits’ volume, much less a third. It also embodied the best commercial examples of Presley’s new post-Army maturity, as both vocalist and musician, and the songs featured on this album achieved an unparalleled level of global chart success by any artist between 1960 and 1963.

Exactly which takes on this new FTD set are officially previously unreleased? Could someone please post that information here?

It'll be interesting to see what unreleased material finds its way to Elvis' Gold Records, Volume 4 (FTD).

Elvis' Golden Records volume 3 brings fond memories. It surely is another great collection among the 3 first ones in the series. I like the idea of getting them all on FTD in due time. I even liked volume 4. Volume 5 was somehow a little out of touch, since it didn't include obvious golden records at the time. But, this may be corrected when releasing a FTD of that set. And, hopefully with the original 10 track album mix, which is outstanding.

Ummm...Me thinks I was too quick to say I had all the outtakes, starting with "Fame and Fortune" takes 8 & 9 are in fact NOT on Elvis Is Back FTD release. Time to check them all out....

a LOT of unreleased 'takes' from Disc 2 so a winner for me-and being from FTD especially the superb sound on these good tracks!~

Redundant, not buying; I have 'em all on FTD issues.
