This announced tracklisting is still incomplete ! One song(title), which was on all previous CD-releases, is missing here : "I Hear A Sweet Voice Calling ", and should be audible after "Summertime Is Passed And Gone " & before "Sweetheart You Done Me Wrong ". " I Hear A ......." was even on the vinyl bootleg LP "Million Dollar Quartet", ( no label-name at all, just " OMD-001" on the sleeve .I purchased this LP such a long time ago I can't even remember when, maybe more than 25 or 30 years ago. This Lp had only 17 (!!!)tracks. Always El TCB

Always one of my favorite CDs because it is 1) historic and 2) Elvis being Elvis and just enjoying himself at his most creative period. In 1956 Elvis could do no wrong and everything he sang he sang with conviction and emotion, even in this 'jam' session. And listen to his guitar playing. A lost art once the soundtracks started. Elvis never sounded bored on this CD and for that, 2 thumbs up!! Thank you Sam Phillips!

I love the "Don't Be Cruel" bit where Elvis explains how the song originated. I shall be getting this complete CD.

I bought the MDQ cd back in the '90s. I listened to it a couple of times and then put it back on the shelf and never listened to it again. Too me it's a jam session. A curiosity piece. Albeit, historic. The historic value didn't increase my listening pleasure. I'm sure I'll buy this complete and hopefully sonically improved version, but it's not likely that I will play it any more often. Hey, Viva! Don't be so cynical. New tapes are being discovered. Perhaps as you read this. We should hope that the discovery of new or lost tapes never ends.

When ever I hear the words "For the first time ever" from BMG or EPE, it makes my flesh crawl. I hate to be an old cynic, but why do I get the feeling that this new "complete recorded session in the original sequence" will be surpassed five years down the road with a new even more "complete and in the original sequence" release. I know they can only release what they have at the time, but I'm bored rigid with owning ten copies of one part of the king's work just because they did such a crap job in the first nine instances, and someone happens to find an extra ten seconds of hiss on the tapes.

Not my favourite Elvis recording, although he makes up for some unpleasant singing of the others in the 'quartet'

Quite interesting. I wonder why they never used the original order though....

I will be glad to purchase this material in a more complete form. I thought the old one suffered from lack of reverb and was a bit "dry" sounding.
