Flesh, Blood And Bone

Victrola will release a new CD. This is what they say about it: 

Our previous release dealt with 1956, arguably the best year of Elvis’ career. It was the year that Elvis shot to stardom, broke numerous industry records, and recorded and released an abundance of sensational music. That year, Elvis was the hottest name in the music business. He was the ‘talk of the town’ and created mass hysteria wherever he went, and controversy with almost everything he did. His television appearances made him a household name in a matter of a few months, and his first movie ‘Love Me Tender’ was a smash hit. That year, he could do no wrong. The girls wanted him, and the guys wanted to be like him. He inspired many to pick up a guitar and have their own go at a career. Many acts inspired by him began to pop up everywhere. The success of Elvis Aaron Presley was like nothing the music industry had experienced before.

This release pays tribute to these magical years by focusing on the songs that Elvis recorded in this timeframe. But instead of presenting you with the regular studio masters, we try to bring you an alternative perspective by using studio outtakes, home recordings, later live versions, alternate masters and one-liners… some unreleased, others rare or unavailable on CD. With these years being so crucial for Elvis’ career, it’s no surprise that he returned to these songs time and again. We have also used relevant dialogue from interviews and from concerts to give the listener additional insight into these songs and the period during which they were originally recorded…. Elvis’ Golden Years.

What a lousy cover...enough to put new fans off.

Okay I plead guilty.. I threw together some tracks and made up a title. I thought it was a fun thing today at that time but never thought a label would actually use my idea...
japio (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 22, 2013report abuse
i read deluxe 3 cd. What a jokes in here.1956-1958. While there are a lot tracks from the 70's . Thet lie again to us guys. Danny - alternate take while the tapes are lost, All shook up. (probaly the same as on FTD,)Alternate take 22 of Wear my ring around your neck. This is the master. And available in the overdubbed master and undubbed master. On Essential 3. This can't be not an alternate . maybe only the christmas promo is new.Let's hope Danny is alternate and all shook up with extra studio chat. ( that will gives hope that the session tapes still exist.Nothing more. No i can't be psoitive about this one.

The blurb - if you care to read it - does state "deluxe 3-CD package". However it's not for me, no interest in one-liners etc. The only worthwhile stuff on these discs we've already got. Pass!
