FTD has announced the tracklist of the new 'Live A Little, Love A Little' Classic Album and it proves that a "BRAND NEW" previously unknown 1968 Elvis session reel has been found! This is the sort of news that all Elvis fans hope for. It is surprising that so little has been made of this discovery.
While the session only included four songs for the movie soundtrack, it did feature the wonderful 'A Little Less Conversation' and 'Edge Of Reality'. At last fans will get to hear TEN new session takes of 'A Little Less Conversation', FIVE new takes of 'Edge Of Reality' plus five new versions of 'Wonderful World' and five attempts at 'Almost In Love' - including a rehearsal.
It is worth noting that session song #2005 was previously "unknown" but is now revealed as the first attempt at 'Almost In Love' which Elvis in the end would finish as an overdub. This is one of the most exciting Elvis releases in a long while...
