Memphis Recording Service Volume 2

The long awaited final part of the Memphis Recording Service package is to be released on 27th November 2006. The package comes with huge contributions from many well known Elvis collectors and authors. Others include the likes of Scotty Moore. The contents are as follows: 1. BOOK - THE RISE OF ELVIS PRESLEY - 1955 The book containing nearly 400 pages of exclusive new information on Elvis Presley in 1955 is written by Joseph Pirzada and John Michael Heath with many contributors including Scotty Moore. See the hundreds of historical rare insider documents and photographs, many of which have never been seen before. This is a journey to over 300 shows that year (more than any other year in his lifetime) with great stories and exclusive new information on this most updated compilation on Elvis in 1955. 2. ORIGINAL 45RPM SUN MASTER 223 ‘MYSTERY TRAIN’ VINYL REPRESS The original Sun 223 45rpm issue of 'Mystery Train' was Elvis Presley's last record on the Sun Record Label released in August 1955. Since then, it is now released here for the first time in its original format, processed from the same mother stamper Sun used in 1955. If you have never been fortunate to own the original we present 'Mystery Train' back in its original format. 3.

It offers many channels FROM MONO to 5.1 surround sound in either Mono or Stereo at various sampling frequencies and sample rates. Compared to the CD format, the DVD format enables far higher audio quality. The format on this particular disc has nothing to do with reprocessing sound into stereo, pro logic nor has sound been remixed in any way. The sound on this disc is completely natural MONO and the sampling rate given is at its highest quality never before released which is not capable on the CD format. Sampling rates on a CD today is now considered limited, where as on the DVD- Audio format it can be 16, 20 or 24 bit, with sampling rates of 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4 or 192 kHz. Different sampling sizes and frequencies can be used on a single disc. Audio is stored on the disc in LPCM format which is UNCOMPRESSED or LOSSLESSLY COMPRESSED unlike the CD format. The DVD-Audio player may downmix surround sound to two-channel stereo or mono if the listener does not have a surround sound setup. The downmix capability is limited to two-channels not to other configurations, such as 4.1. With this, it is still different to a normal CD except in that you are still getting a much higher sampling rate. DVD-Audio discs commonly contain Dolby Digital of the audio (with lossy compression, usually downsampled to lower sampling sizes and frequencies) in the DVD-Video section. The downsampled sizes are still of higher quality than the CD format. This is done to ensure compatibility with DVD-Video players that do not include DVD-Audio.

The original sound, sounds like they are looking to clean out our pockets

Nice but I also will wait for the FTD Sun package. Plus I hate phony color - sort of cheapens the whole package.

Is that it? After all the hype!! What a bummer! I think I will definitely wait for the FTD book and CD set, at least that will contain all the sessions and unreleased material as Ernst has already mentioned.
