No, it's not the end of the world that there's yet ANOTHER delay, but why is it FTD releases are delayed more often than not? It gets to be more of a joke and yes, it is frustrating to deal with. Once in a while, sure, but more than 50% of the time? Come on now. I was one of the first to complain, but came back with giving credit where it's due: FTD does put out a very fine product; I just wish they wouldn't delay as much as they do.

i think they should release 1 ftd a mounth rather than 3 in 1 month as we are not all made of money.

Whats a week really? These are great releases and we are lucky that they continue to be put out. I know that i cant get hold of them quick enough, but as E once sang 'anything worth having - is worth the waiting for! I must say i get more excited about the FTD stuff than how many copies the latest re-released single has sold or where it appears it a fading chart.

Not a big deal ! I've waited so long to have something like "Elvis is back" in the FTD serie, that I can wait some days more.

Maybe if they gave us just one FTD at a time, instead of three (must think we're all millionaires) They would be able to work to the time scale given.

Am I mistake? Oh dear, I can't type today! Sorry

Am I mistake, or wasn't the Elivs on Tour rehearsal disc and other discs before Christmas out early?? Release dates are always changing for all artists, it isn't just an Elvis thing. If the stuff came out on time but with an error somewhere, people still wouldn't like it!

Come on guys, it's just a delay - no big deal! I don't understand some of you guys, to me you sound like a huge bunch of whiners. Always complaining about this or that - "Oh no it's delayed", "why did they not add another 5 min of songs to this CD", "I cant get the BMG/Sony singles", "Oh EPE is so bad I hate them" blablabla. I know people are just expressing their feelings, but I am getting a bit tired about all the negativity. Is Elvis all that matters in your life? I think we fans have a lot of stuff to look forward to, even if things are delayed! Stop whining, you sound like a bunch of women who has their period....

As disappointed as I am in hearing about YET ANOTHER delay, I must say the finished product FTD furnishes is very nice. It looks like we'll be getting 2 cds for the price of 1 with some forthcoming releases, so I reckon heeding Elvis' own words would be wise, "You gotta take the bad with the good."

sorry elvis is back has been delayed,but i'm sure the delay will be worth the wait as with all ftd releases they try to give us the best quality recordings available and i for one cant wait to buy this release,on to another point,jimmy tompkins wrote that there is a unofficial release of " born to rock" or c'mon everybody as it is better known where can i get a copy of this track as i had mentioned on this website about a year ago that c'mon everybody would be a excellent track to remix,so jimmy or anyone else who has this track i would really appreciate a copy thanks

I'm counting on FTD to get the album right this time. The packaging is definately worth the extra $10 that an FTD release costs. "Spinout" is a great example of what can be done with a regular album.

Another FTD release delayed. Surprise! I always take these release dates with a grain of salt. Jimmy Tompkins: You'd rush out and buy an album of remixes, good for you. But I'm not interested. The only reason I have them is because they were stuck on E1/E2.

Why does it seem there's FTD delays more often than not? What's the problem?! Nothing is more aggravating, as a fan, than expecting the release of a cd only to hear it's going to be delayed. What a crock! How many years have these guys been doing this and they're STILL having delays? Why not work all the kinks out first AND THEN announce a release date?! Sorry, folks, but this is years of frustration I'm talking about.

I'm almost pleased the FTD has been delayed - wouldn't be a genuine FTD release without the delay. It is daft given the history of FTD releases for them to continue to give a release date in the first place, if only they renamed it to "proposed release date" or "provisional release date" that way fans who can't work out that the complexities involved in some of these releases are likely to make unknown difficulties cause a delay won't have grounds to be disappointed.
Perhaps no release date and "It will be ready when its ready and no sooner" should be the official line. If the delays mean that we are going to get an even better product than if it was rushed to meet a deadline then long may it continue to be delayed. There is nothing much new in the can, but the trend will be to give us even better sounding Elvis songs than we've ever heard them before. These will sound like songs recorded yesterday and not decades ago.
Sometimes there's not a lot can be done with the sound and we get it near enough on time. Other delays are caused by not being able to track down all the musicians who might have played on some of the songs, but better we still get it eventually than to have it shelved forever. Some of this stuff we've waited decades for, I don't see how a few extra weeks is really going to make that much difference.

Whilst I do very much enjoy the FTD releases surely there really can't be much left "in the can", for us collectors who yearn for previously unheard tracks.
Given the excellent success of "A little less conversation" and "Rubberneckin" in extended and remixed form, not to mention the mind blowing unofficial release "Born to rock", surely hasn't the time come to do more of this. I would certainly rush out and buy an album with extended, revamped mixes of the King's classics. I love the originals but they are too damn short, on the whole. I think "Born to rock" (or "C'mon everybody" for those of you who didn't know) would have been a number 1 single. "Burning Vegas down" was nearly as good too! Anyway this will continue to keep me happy till I get too old to rock!

This is the same old story everytime a FTd release is about to come out it is always delayed. I can't remember the last time a FTD release came out on the date they said it would. I still look forward to the releases but please try and stick to the stated release date.

Checked the date but it ain't april 1st yet. So it's no joke and that's not funny but actually it's old news because it happens often with FTD. Well I can still wait for a while for Elvis Is Back because the majority was already released and in my possesion anyway. The soundborad are all alike and I already have plenty of those so that's no problem either.
