Upcoming FTD Soundtracks

Follow That Dream continues its program of reissuing original Elvis movie soundtrack albums that have been deleted from the regular mainstream RCA label catalogue. The next batch comes November 10, 2003 with the FTD reissue of the soundtrack albums "Viva Las Vegas", "Frankie and Johnny" and "Harum Scarum". These soundtrack reissues are in addition to the quarterly Follow That Dream label releases of collectors material.

I have to agree with Albert. We should be satisfied that our man has his own collectors label. He's the only one that has one. I have every FTD incl. the soundtracks and the book, and I enjoy most of them. Ofcourse there are some from wich I think we didn't need that one but this is the only way to put some studio and concert material in our collctions. And I am complaining about all those who have their complaints about these FTD releases. Or should Ernst stop working on these releases and do we have to wait till some of these concerts or studio recordings will be out on an import cd? Most of the time wich are in bad sounding quality and with lousy art cover work. You will not hear me say that all FTD's have a diecent cover art, but I think we are better of this way. Let Ernst & Co do their work and enjoy these releases as much as you can.

I enjoy most of the FTD releases and have bought every title (except two). The more the better. Six or seven ftd releases a years is really affordable (especially since there are hardly any importCD's released for the past couple of years)....Keep 'em coming ;)

I completely agree with Bill. One release per quarter is more than enough. Maybe one on studio outtakes, one concert and 2 movie soundtracks - till the movies are dealt with, when we can have 2 concert releases in it's place, or a boxset with "unreleased" material - which should not be for the main stream listener, but an FTD release.
Let's look at it from the perspective of a new fan. We all know there is a lot to buy just to get all the studio recordings as well as the officially released live shows. I've just got more or less all the above in the past 3 years since I've become a fan - plus various boxsets and FTD releases. But boy, it is exhausting and financially draining just to try to get to the place where you can have the excisting thingies. Then they keep bombarding you with a lot of new material, which of course you don't want to miss out on, but you are so far behind, because you have only so much money ... And remember, you also want some books and movies and documentaries ...
And then: Just as you are almost getting there, they "discover" this new DSD technology and there you go, because to hear the songs (you already have) in the new sound quality is awesome. So of course you keep buying them and eventually start hoping that they will redo all the studiorecordings in that sound. At least the 50's, 60's and 70's boxsets should be redone - with the 70's boxset giving us ALL the studiomasters this time, thank you. You can't win, can you?

I have purchased about half of the FTD cds so far and really enjoy them. I do think they release to many in a years time. I think 2 releases a year would be sufficent. By doing 2 instead of 4 plus movie soundtracks it would become more of an event. They should have used more common sense. What I mean by that is they released 2 movie soundtracks Out in Hollywood and Silver Screen Stereo and the songs at least a lot of them are gonna be on the deleted movie soundtracks. The song order on Out in Hollywood and Silver Screen Stereo is not in any sensible order. Also Fame and Fortune has several Gospel songs from the His Hand in Mine session from 1960 and then there is the Easter Special all Gospel album. To many soundbords from the years 74-77 and not enough of 69-73 and I realize there is more material from 74-77. The last complaint is the cost is just to high. I think EPE is milking the fans sometime.
