New Quickpoll

Our last quickpoll had a clear result: not less than 75% of over 600 fans think that FTD does NOT release too much at the moment. Our new quickpoll is a statement that you can agree or disagree with: "I love the recent merchandise by EPE".

Jeremytcb i just had to let you know that i couldn't agree more with what you said. That really annoys me aswell cos, like you said, i for one just love 70's Elvis. The amount of arguments i've had with people because they said he was just fat in the 70's is ridiculous. Why people get off on commenting on "the decline" of Elvis and the fact that he died "on the toilet" because he "ate too many cheeseburgers" i don't know. It really p****s me off.
anyway enough of my ranting

Well, here in Brazil the merchandise is terrible. I donĀ“t even think we have one. BMG, please look for the Elvis brazilian fans.

Most of what EPE sells is awful. I went to Graceland with quite a bit of money to spend on merchandise and could hardly find anything worth buying. The only good stuff to be found was in the "Pink Shops" that were independently owned, but then Graceland ran them off. EPE sells virtually nothing that the collector would want, mainly just overpriced trinkets. One of my pet peeves is that they only want to use images of the 50's Elvis on their merchandise. I love the 50's Elvis too, but if EPE would look at the poll on their own website they would find that fans ranked this era last in preference...go to any fan gathering and you will find that most serious fans love the 70's Elvis best. I know the reason for this is that EPE does not want to remind the public of a heavy unhealthy Elvis. But, he looked great for much of the 70's and there are a lot of images worth using - and not just from TTWII and Aloha. 1974-77 is dying off folks...from EPE because of image concerns and BMG because they own the rights to everything PRE-1973 and only have to pay royalties on 74-77. The great moments of early '74, the fun summer of '75, the awesome tour of Dec. 76, some powerful performances from '77...all of this ignored except for the occasional bone.
