I Did It My Way 1977
A new 4 CD longbox with booklet was announced by the Wonderland Records import label. The set, entitled 'I Did It My Way 1977', contains 3 soundboards and 1 audience recording, apparently copied from 'The Final Curtain' box-set.

well i got the final curtain box so i guess i'm happy with that relese and skip this sucker i don't buy elvis cd just to look at the cover. this would be waste of money..........................so no thanks
No Worried i didnt buy the overpriced set and wont be getting this.i find it depressing. I will buy the Elvis in concert ftd, that will be my next and last purchase from 77.
The best part of the final curtain are the dvds.Elvis was shockingly in bad shape.Apart from a handful of great performances, my favourite part of the later shows was the band intros,especially the drum solos.I would definately give this a miss.
If you know your import labels then you realize all WRL do is copy imports old and new and bring out a 'limited edition of 500' longbox edition,so i guess all Ciscocking is saying the way WRL do things is 'crap' and not a reference to the cd contents.
Am only surprised the fans who want this have not had a opportunity to buy the very nice 3 digi-packs that were released a few weeks ago and mentioned on this forum,anyway if you have not got these then yes a great opportunity to buy these and should be able to get this package for £45 or less..............happy hunting.
I, of course, do understand this point of view, too..that`s o.k..no problem with it.
Cisko... Your point about re-re-re-re leasese is clear. Only i think that this will be cheaper ( i " hpoe ) than 4 separate cd's But there's a difference to the "socalled classics "cd's with nothing new on it or with copy and paste takes. In this i think the separate discs will also soon be sold. that's why i defent cd's like this. Shame on RCA,sony or whatever.; To bring this to the fans. It's a part of his legacy. But there are lot of fans who can't find the previous releases. In that case it will be welcome addtion and not CRAP. I can understand your opinon. And ofcourse i hope you can do a review when it's out. I also want to thank you for your reply's.
Was my first posting..misleading..? The Indy show is out on 7 (!) releases..already and the 3 SB have been released a few weeks (!) ago on separate discs.. how many re-re-re-re-releases do you need to get these shows..? Got my point..? I don`t criticize sound, layout etc.. just the circumstance that this material is already released to death..
great reply Lefty and mature. It's always the same here. But some guys are rich and can afford. But there are a lot fans who can't afford it. For them it's a change to buy a bit from this box. And it's not out yet. So maybe can cisko tellus us now what's the quality of this box. Now. he says it's CRAP ,while it's not out yet. tell us now ( and not when it's out)why we should not buy it, and why it's CRAP.
is he putting up his middle finger on this cover?..
Well said Lefty ! Always El.
Is this product crap? I haven't seen or heard it yet, so I can't say. Maybe it is, maybe it isn't. A dealer offered me a copy of The Final Curtain for $500.00. That's a lot money for a bootleg, even one made in love and with high standards. What do you think this three soundboard collection will cost? Maybe $75.00 or less? That's a long way from $500.00. Maybe those of us that dropped tons of money on The Final Curtain are feeling ripped off? If so, it's time to have a drink with FTD, RCA, and BMG, and Sony. They've been feeling the pain of being ripped off for years! My point is that bootleg distribution is an illegal practice. There are no rules! If you want the content and a bootlegger offers it for sale, go buy it and be happy! If you're concern is for fairness in the bootleg market (which is a contradiction), or worry about a rip-off, you best give up buying bootlegs altogether.
Why call something crap? simple you have the original and couldnt care less if someone else couldnt afford it. This is nothing new in the Elvis world, there both unofficial releases so get over it.
I see negative reply's . In the first place the final curtain was very expensive for a lot of fans. Also very limited . So this will be a welcome subsitute for those missed this box. So why called Cisko it Crap. Because i son't have much live shows
And mr Bruins : youre a lucky rich man i guess. I'm not but saved money for it, but i not get my hand on it. Again a change for me to buy a little peice of this box. But when im looking on the web i'll see people who's sells cd-r's for high prices. That is CRAP. Or camden albums. That are CRAP. And from the first vinyl imports. People are steals from other labels. That's nothing new. i like this.
I read some time back that the producers of The Finan Curtain had to pay a lot of money and handed over guarantees as a down payment for the royalties. So they paid dearly! So I understand the point Wiebe made. And although the price was tough the buyers got quite some product for quite some new stuff. And (as usual) the Ciscoking remark right on. Anyway. For those who could not get one of the earlier releases it will be useful. Most of the latest (re-re-re)releases fit under that heading.
The SBs have been re-released on separate discs a few weeks ago and the Indy show has been out on 7 (!) different releases. So ..who on earth needs this piece of C-R-A-P.
I own The Final Curtain, so this is a c-r-a-p release for me..
I understand what you are trying to say wiebe, but have you been I contact or do you know the bootleggers that put out the final curtain box?Do you know what they decided to do with the tapes after had given out it?So that it's not a guess what you are saying?
I totally understand that money is the major motivating factor behind "imports". However, and without explicitly condoning them ;) I do thing some labels show real respect for the target market. The amount of attention that goes into some of the releases is impressive, much more than would normally be required for we, the potential buyers. Ofc ourse they don't pay for the material or any of the photos used which is unfair to the people whose hard work is being taken advantage of but the pilfered product in some cases has nevertheless been put together with obvious love and care. You can see why some labels generate excitement with each new release when they come out with these standards. This particular boxed set is not one of them.
I don't agree. The original bootleggers of this release usually paid dearly to get the tapes. So I think we should respect that and not re-re-re -release them. Because it's killing for a healthy bootleg industry. People will stop putting interesting stuff out because they can't make their investment back. I'm glad I bought the Final Curtain Box.
I agree with both Lefty and Tony C.I haven't bought it, but I think this content should be available for all.Not only for people with a big wallet.We are all elvis fans so don't deny others to owe this materials.
I agree with Tony C. Boots are pirated material from the start. None of them are legitimate. If the content rings your bell, and it's available, go for it!
Or handy for people like me that have not got "The Final Curtain" box set. I don't really care which label, if there can really be such a thing, puts out the bootlegs. To me, it's all about the contents.
This label is a pirate of pirates... Crappy release. Only for who missed previously CD's.
