Regarding the next two soundtrack CD's I would like to see the following approach. "Follow That Dream": The problem of the missing stereo masters may never be resolved, as they could be lost forever. The original EP was only released in mono at the time, so the tracks could be presented that way at the start of the CD. They could follow these with the existing stereo masters, and then some out-takes. This would avoid jumping from stereo to mono and back again as we had on the "Double Features" CD.
"Kid Galahad": While I like the uncut versions on the "Double Features" CD, I grew up listening to the edited versions on the original EP. I would like to see the original EP edits as the first tracks on the CD, followed up the unedited masters that were shortened for release, and then the out-takes.

The FTD sessions have aleady been released in their entirety on the boot' "The Complete FTD Sessions in Stereo." The whole session are on one disc, so FTD should have no problem doing the same, with this one and Kid Galahad. The Fort Worth show could be a good one -- the june '76 tour was one of Elvis' best of the year. He was excellent in the Omni (check the boot "One Night in the Omni") and was good in Tuscon, as evident on FTD's "Tuscon '76."
Again, the June 74 tour was excellent -- check the boot "Rockin Against the Roaring Falls" for further evidence. This was a major tour for Elvis, as concerts were selling out left, right and centre, and more had to be added.
The accompanying book should be very good, and will no doubt be a good companion piece to "Steamrolling Over Texas." Whilst, the On Tour rehearsals, as a disc of select renditions, will no doubt be very good -- as actual sessions, they are not so interesting, and although there are plenty gems, these oft' bootlegged sessions ("Lost on Tour" etc etc) will IMO be best appreciated from a video source.

I'd also like to see TICKLE ME released on CD along with all of the remaining soundtracks.

About the two mentioned movie soundtracks, are they going to be on 1 CD or do they have enough material for 2 separate CDs? I do hope the latter is the answer!
Furthermore I know that the Follow That Dream stereo masters were lost. Have they been found at last? Or are they going to use the same old mono masters we already have? Personally I would rather wait for the stereo masters to be located first if not found yet before they release this great soundtrack.

Over The Rainbow featured on "The Complete On Tour Sessions Vol 1" CD from Vicky fifteen years ago (Wow, was it really 15 years!!!). Supposedly taken from a rehearsal at the Memorial Auditorium in Buffalo on 5 April 1972. It literally is Elvis singing "Over the rainbow" and lasts about 5 seconds.

Jim Semple - My guess is that this is a few lines that Elvis sang while rehersing. If it's the whole song, that will be great, but it's probably him just singing a few lines while they were getting ready for the next song. I can't wait to get this one in my Elvis music library! They all sound great, but I for sure want "On Tour: The Rehearsals".

I'm slightly confused, so apologies for being thick! Since when did Elvis sing "Over a Rainbow" etc on his 1972 "On Tour" ?!??

EOT rehearsals is wonderful news and them releasing it probably means Turner is about to develop some DVD project with the movie. About the book... that doesn't sound very exciting to me.
