Elvis Sings The Fabulous Sounds Of The Sixties

Elvis Sings The Fabulous Sounds Of The Sixties contains 29 of some of his finest recorded music of the 60's. But thats just a start. All tracks are unreleased in this form. You'll hear the best outtakes, but all tracks are edited for optimal listening pleasure. No false starts, no count-inns, no studio chats, no fooling around ... just the full versions in all it's glory! Like you never heard before! Elvis recorded only silly movie songs in the 1960s and totally lost control with the music scene of that era. That's what the public opinion is these days. Some parts are true. Yes, he recorded some not so great songs, mostly coming from his films. And yes, he did loose some control in the music scene during the British Invasion years.

But ... he also recorded some of his finest songs in the 1960s. Listen to albums like Elvis Is Back, Golden Records volume 3, The NBC TV Special or From Elvis In Memphis and you'll hear pure magic. It's Elvis in the 60's ... it's Elvis at his very best! Hits Elvis, Romantic Elvis, Gospel Elvis, Film Elvis, Rockin' Elvis, Comeback Elvis ... it's all here in the very best recorded outtakes.

LIMITED TO ONLY 300 COPIES comes with a cool lookin' 4 page full color booklet.

Interesting concept that Sony should have released ! Creative thinking and alternative song renditions that are new to the ears of a lot of people (not necessarily EP fans). EPE Inc. should stande pede demand Sony to fire the Junior manager in charge of all Elvis catalogue activities & future releases ! Out you go nitwit; no good ! Not up to speed.

Elvis has left us for almost 40 years. Fans have been asking during his life time and all these years after for the release of material. Before FTD started to supply us with materials nobody at RCA et al cared to do so. Hence these has been a vivid market for bootlegs. I for one was happy just to lay hands on those products. Now-a-days we get in a year more CDs that LPs for many a year in those days. FTD has released quite some good stuff, but has to cope with many a bootlegger, so cannot compete with that. The effort to stop bootlegs is sheer impossible, besides methink it is RCA et al who gave rise to the bootlegs. Including this seemingly useless release. Any fan with a reasonable collection can put this one together.

I agree, I never use the word import for a bootleg. As for the banning of bootlegs, the recording industry has been trying to do this for many years.

It's not illegal to buy bootlegs and definitely not illegal to "have knowledge" of them so lets call a spade a spade and drop all this "import" nonsense.

The problem with these cd's are that they never brings us new things. Just what the old bootleg labels did. Not for the money said somebody. But that is completely wrong. I can tell you for sure. they will sell it to retailers for 5 euro and that makes 1500 euro , while they pay maybe 400 euro. That makes a 1100 euro. Not for the money ? But what get the owner of the original works. Nothing. And what do you think about this line " Elvis recorded only silly movie songs in the 1960s" respect for Elvis. So not for the money. Ban this kind of releases and soon they will disapear.

VivaLasDavies, Yes of course we all know what 'iimports' really means but I think you will find most forums,dealers,fans etc have used this term to distant themselves from actually having knowledge of 'bootlegs'.....it a strange old world but please check out the Elvis www and see if you can find how politically correct we have been for some years now.

How do you know (Andersen) that this is a cd from our "dutch friend"? Why complaining all the time? If you don't like it, don't buy it, just leave it where it belongs....on the shelve at the house/studio from the 'producer'.

The bootleggers are running out of marketing ploys. First, it was "superior sound"(sometimes true, mostly not), then it was "unedited masters"(nice if you enjoy false starts, multiple takes, poor mixing, and abrupt endings), now it's "edited masters" which is what the official label has been giving us since 1955. Yes, I know these are "edited outtakes," but does it matter? This is stuff all of us own more than once in one form or another. For some of us, we own this stuff more times than we will ever admit. As a long time collector, I think it's time for me to face the music (pun intended) and get used to the idea that there is nothing new under the Sun. Even the highly coveted On Tour concerts and the CBS material has been in circulation for decades. It's all just a matter of repeats now.

Another day , another stinker. Between his legit label & this garbage being put out by bootleggers & small independents is it any wonder why his catalogue & legacy are being diluted. Ohhhh I didn't see this. You get a 4 yes four page booklet. Maybe I have to rethink things. The used bins are swelling with Elvis product.

I often wonder why these releases are called "imports" when everyone knows they're "bootlegs". Why not just call them that. I'm sure there's nothing illegal in merely using the dreaded word!

Andersen, you obviously have an idea who made this. Luckily Jerome got all 300 as no one on this site is interested.
Steve V, you are so right about this. In the nineties I might have had the impetus to buy this one, now it's outdated. Even for the new collectors.

Yet another homemade factory pressed release by our dutch friend.

Hello, this is contrived, gormless rubbish.
Tracey Jayne (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 5, 2013report abuse
Brian Quinn, You do know this is a import release and as for being 'limited' to 300 copies well I would take that with a pinch of salt.So as it is a import all profits go to the appropriate dealers/sellers.......that's of course if they manage to shift copies?. The Elvis market is saturated with releases like these and offer very little to any Elvis fan.
Jerome (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 5, 2013report abuse
I ordered all 300...
Brian Quinn (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 5, 2013report abuse
Why issue a CD with only 300 copies being produced? Surely this cannot make money for the company concerned.
Steve V (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 5, 2013report abuse
Sort of reminds me of the original way FTD started out. This would have been a nice release years ago, but now?
