Oh, come on! "Disgusting"? That's a little strong. These have been pushed back less than a week. Ice Magazine, the U.S. authority on CD releases, fills a column every month with updates and corrections. This is a very common thing and nothing to get that worked up about. Three months, six months, a year -- that might be a little annoying. But surely we have the patience to wait a few more days. As far as the price discrepancies: Graceland orders the FTD CDs 2,000 at a time, according to my source. That explains the price difference. They get the same volume discount that others would if they ordered in those quantities. But no one else orders in those quantitites. A simple explanation -- nothing sinister there either.

I agree with KEMP, it is disgusting RCA/BMG play this delay game; although to be honest, I phoned ELVIS TODAY in an attempt to order and was told such FTD CDs would be delayed until May 25th-which is tomorrow. What really upsets me is the disparity between pricing as ELVIS TODAY wants $85.00 for the combined FLASHBACK Book and accompanying CD and you can order it thru Graceland much cheaper. What gives here? They keep this up and things are going to go by the wayside with me. I normally will buy anything by Elvis from the 50s on the FTD, but this pricing disparity and the delay in release, just might make we wait or forget about it all together. A CD alone at $30.00 would have well been worth it without the additional book. We'll see!

i think it is disgusting to make fans wait even longer for these excellant releases!-i mean those who pre-ordered "flashback"+"spinout" will be very disapointed indeed.(including myself)as i have pre-ordered these f.t.d. releases and i,m really looking foward to hearing all the rare and unreleased outtakes..it don,t make sense that rca/bmg are delayinf the release for apparant reason..come on,lets get it right man./us elvis dont need this delay,it is not fair and not very good for those that pre-ordered and have to wait even longer!.never mind..its still worth the wait as its good to hear alternate takes and periviously unreleased music from elvis.lets hope they learn from this bad mistake and release elvis music as they said they would?.
