Sweet Home Alabama

Welcome to the second CD release by TNT Records. After a quick sell-out of our first title “Goin´ Back To Houston” and again with a little help from our friends at “Audionics” - probably THE premium and still active label when it comes to rare recordings in best possible sound - we decided once more to pick two shows from “Tour Number 14” (May 30 – June 10, 1975).

On this brandnew double-cd set (Release Date: January 15, 2013) you are going to hear both concerts Elvis did right after a couple of great “warm up”-concerts in Huntsville, AL. Elvis then went on for Concerts number 6 and 7 of “Tour Number 14”. Both shows took place in Mobile, Alabama. And the town went nuts for The “King”. As a matter of fact everybody had to admit that Elvis might have been the only entertainer in 1975 who was able to play a sold out crowd on a Monday afternoon! Both Mobile-Shows have been released before, the afternoon performance even came out by the legendary “Madison”-Label. Anyhow if you have missed the show´s first releases from approximately 10 years ago or if you want to owe them in even better sound than before plus exactly the way they were recorded (without the standard “2001 Theme / See See Rider” opening) you should not miss this great new double cd! You can also expect a great booklet full of photos and information including newspaper articles and original paperwork. Ask your local dealer for it, he should have it right in time around the scheduled release date for you!

I agree with wildfishie on this one. We are a lot of fans who wasn't around when the first original releases came. If you have them already, don't buy them! If you døn't have them; here's your chance!

I understand your point Boxcar, it makes perfect sense to me. But then again we have to think about the new fan who wishes to have the shows in silver disk. What options would they have? 1 - Get luck and find the original Madisons in good condition on auctions but probably very expensive (each album). 2 - Buy a rip-off for a good price (I'm talking about 30 euros for brand new sealed double disk set). Well, I see myself forced to go with option number 2. If only Madison could reprint or re-release their stuff... But that won't happen. If only Madison could recommend a good label to keep up their stuff... Probably not gonna happen happen either.

Uhm wildfishie .. what's a reasonable price? Google for "CD pressing" pick any producer and order 500 CDs including 4 color bootlet. If you are lucky you'll find a pressing plant that charges 1 Euro per copy or less. Including cover that is. If you think I'm talking crazy .. try it. So, I ask you again: What do you call a reasonable price now? These guys earn big deal without investing anything. If they would sell these re-releases for 5 Euros like the cheap EEC productions you can buy on Amazon I also would consider them as heroes for the young fans. But they rip-off big time. And that's not worth celebrating them. I think the following comments will tear me apart but I know who writes them :-)

You guys forget that not everybody had the chance to buy the Madison releases, specially the new fans. Don't you think that this is an opportunity for the new people to have these shows for a reasonable price? The original Madisons could cost a little fortune EACH on eBay. Rip-off or not, TNT is not forcing anyone to buy their stuff, so why do you guys get so pissed off about re-releases? I've already ordered mine for an excellent price and am very happy.

It reads like: "We needed help from Audionics to find the right button to click on on our home-computer because we had no idea by ourselfes what to do. But you need these shows once more because the crowd and the weather was great these days". Whow, that's strategic marketing on a very high level. What convinced me was the "Welcome" at the beginning of the ad. These are no rip-offs, no, they are warmhearted guys who welcome every single customer so you feel right at home when you support them. But there's no "We have a better tape-source from Audionics" or something. Just bla-bla-bla and the usual "Everything was great and we are your friends". And by the way: Every dealer I know can still easily provide the 'fast sell-out first title'.

Jerome has this time a good point. Quality release need a good cover. They said they get help from a good label. Who believes that??? It's so easy to make this. Just leave out the opening and you'll have it like the way they recorded it. True liar ????

I must be strange, when I buy I CD I buy it for the music contained, not for the typeface used on the insert.

That cover art is stunning! Look at the letter type and red colour they used. What a pro's...
