I agree Jailhouse Rock FTD was excellent and this will just be the latest great release to listen too!

Invisible because there were too many capitals in the text

I share all your opinions guys. It's time to get this kind of releases.An now Promised land

Top notch. The only minus is that there is again only a handfull of takes missing from these sessions. Instead of that he filled the CDs with many duplicates from older FTDs. He also did that when 'Today' came out. Why must that be? I'm still waiting for the 100% satisfaction guaranteed FTD.

I have always loved this album evers since my dad had it on a 8 track cartridge in the 70's, it brings back so many memories and Elvis sings strongly and with good songs. can't wait.

Absolutely thrilled to see the track listing for this great album to finaly have outtakes of My Boy , Good Time Charlies Got The Blues and Lovin Arms well about time.

Seems good to me this release..let's wait and see (hear).....outtakes of My Boy, wow...!!!

I always liked this album. I look forward to hearing the outakes and undubbed versions. Elvis-Thats the way it is, Love Letters, Wonderful world of Christmas, Elvis Country, Raised on Rock, Good Times, Promised Land, Elvis Today, some of the better studio albums in the 70s.

seems like a great Christmas gift! I can't wait for this one to come out or another classic release such as Promised Land. I am glad such material comes out after all these years..

Loved the Jailhouse Rock volume 1 FTD, but this Good Times release will certainly be in my top 5 (or even 3). Loved the original album which - in my opinion- is underrated most of the time. Can't wait to hear it !
Rob Wanders (profilecontact) wrote on Nov 13, 2009report abuse
that's one I'm gonna buy for sure, my boy, my boy.

This will be one of the best FTD releases. A good album with a lot of outtakes and i'm sure that the sound will be great too,because Jean-Marc Juilland is a talented sound engineer,unlike Lene Reidel. I'm looking forward to get this one before Christmas. Let's hope we'll get "Promised Land" in 2010!

This could end up being one of my top 5 FTD releases. I can't wait for this to end up in my CD player. Great selection of songs, outtakes, and some undubbed masters. It's even been remastered by Jean-Marc Juilland who has done some quality work on other releases. Thank you Ernst and company. It looks like a great Christmas present for myself. I hope the new year brings us the next logical release - "Promised Land."
