Elvis Recorded Live On Stage In Memphis Reissued On FTD

Part of Follow That Dream Records’ mission, along with their regular quarterly releases of concert soundboards, alternate material from recording sessions and other special material, is to reissue Elvis movie soundtrack albums and classic Elvis albums that have been deleted from the regular RCA Records label catalog and are no longer widely available. The next Classic Albums reissue is the 1974 album Elvis Recorded Live On Stage In Memphis. It will include the songs that were left out of the original album, Consequently, the whole show has to be remixed. The package will be in the 7” format including a booklet with pictures and information about the show.

This should be an official release! I hope FTD will release this CD without the overdubbed audience!

All i can say is about time. I have been an Elvis fan since 1971and I havent heard the complete concert so well done would like Elvis in concert cd in full also(both concerts) and also Elvis's last concert that would be fantastic

Really looking forward to this one!. Great idea to present it in the ´Classic Album´ series, that will be a treat and the right way to present this concert to us!. Yes, we´ve had this one on bootleg but not in the stunning soundquality that it no doubt will be in (just listen to ´Steamroller´ on the Platinum Box). Nice touch to release it this year as it was 50 years ago that Elvis cut ´That´s Allright´ in Memphis and the concert was 30 years ago.
There´s no need to complain about this one (although some have made it their daytime job; ´Coplaining About Elvis´ Releases´...) it will be a 100% Winner!!. Thanks, Ernst.

All I would like to say is that I thought FTD was designed for the hardcore Elvis fan and not Joe Public. Then surely FTD must realise that 99% of all hardcore Elvis fans have heard this concert in full in excellent sound years ago. Is it too simple to release a concert that hasn't been out on bootleg before ??.

I appreciate everyone's opinion, either good or bad. I especially agree with Matt W. The guys at FTD are doing a fantastic job! I'm glad that they're providing Elvis fans with new stuff on a regular basis. I wonder if Frank Sinatra's label has an FTD type subsidiary? How about The Door's label? Roy Orbison's label? The answer is most likely no. Therefore, I consider Elvis fans to be blessed! One day FTD will run out of material. They'll close shop, and all we will have left is the regular BMG catalog. When that happens, FTD will be greatly missed.

Hi Friends, first of all I don`t want to complain about a thing I`haven`t heard before! But I don`t think an FTD release will get the same treatment as a mainstream one, because of Budget reasons. To me a nicley done coverart can`t replace soundquality, it`s the content that counts not the package. Let`s all hope it`s not a left over from the "A Life in Music" Boxset by the talentfree Dennis Ferrante. If it would sound like the Gospel tracks released on the "Peace in the Valley" Box (How great thou art & Why me lord are newly remixed) I could live with that. Since all the original live stuff is deleted, a re-release with new coverart and as a high resolution multichannel Hybrid SACD, would be a very interesting and atractive release not only for the Fans but also for the many newbies that have been infected by the Elvis Virus in the last 2 years! There`s a market and a potential but you have to give it a try BMG! But that`s just my opinion! Regards, Mathias

EspenK, everyone is in titled to their opinion... I have this concert for 10 years now on the "Steamroller Blues" Bootleg, so nothing new for me... But I am looking forward to it... Hopefully it will be complete with the 9 songs that were cut out in 1974. I disagree that it should be a commercial release, live albums don't sell anymore.

Ah, great news! Favorite concert, great performance from da man. I look forward to hear the complete show - and in remixed sound too. However, unless the left out tracks has some major flaws, it surprises me that its not scheduled for a regular release - surely the content is good enough for a wider audience? (And please, "FTD44" - that kind of whining gets you nowhere, and is only annoying to read for the rest of us. So put a sock in it. Thankyouverymuch.)

This is great!! When I read in various places this was probably going to be on FTD I thought it would be like the regular FTD releases. It's really great this will be as the FTD soundtracks. And I couldn't care less that its not going to be a regular release, it really doesn't matter. I wish people would not criticise Ernst and the rest of the FTD/Elvis team, it really is bad. Without their commitment and enthusiasm we would not have a collectors label and we would not be getting this complete show in ANY form. Keep up the good work guys!

i am wondering why this is not being a regular release,it seems that we have to pay extra for material that should be out on the regular market,i am wondering is ernst maybe getting extra cash for ripping us off and no more live ftd releases please,how bout some stuff of outtake from 1971 sessions,common ernst what gives

I welcome this one! Besides ON STAGE, FEBRUARY 1970, this is one of my favourite live LP's with Elvis! The CD copy we've had was ok with me. But, I've always dreamed of something like this! To me, it's a classic and I love that Ernst adds it to the series as with the soundtracks! Get it on!

Can not wait for this beuty!! Just love it, when they make that extra effort to present these movie soundtracks and now consert in such a nice collectible way. Keep on!!

Why not all songs that were left out of original albums on FTD. I'm not interested in the 6 millionth version of Hound dog any longer. There are such beauties such as: "You can have her, Turn around and look at me, etc.
