The UK single due to be released on March 26th has now been rescheduled (again) for April 2nd. The original date for Suspicious Minds, from the newly edited version of TTWII, was given by BMG as March 12th. BMG assured that the new date will not now be changed.
Although promo singles are being produced and distributed to radio jocks at this time, interest from retailers has so far been minimal. The newly re-edited live video ( re-edited to remove the strobing - a requirement now in place from all broadcasters) has been delivered to both VH1, BBC and ITV and will be seen on Top Of The Pops 2, Richard & Judy, and on the MTV networks. BMG are waiting to see what viewer response is lodged with retailers before a firm commitment to release is given by the company. The cover shows a 1968 Comeback special shot the same as the Memories CD. BMG think Elvis in a jumpsuit from 1970 is not a suitable image for today's public.
