Way Down In The Jungle Room

According to several sites Sony Legacy will release a 2CD and 2LP set with recordings from the Jungle Room.

This is what Sony says about it:

The most complete and comprehensive collection of Presley's final studio recordings ever
assembled in one anthology, Way Down In The Jungle Room is an essential and welcome
addition for every fan's library. In the mid-1970s, Elvis, the King of Rock 'n' Roll, became
another kind of pioneer as one of the world's first major recording artists to create fully-
realized professional level records in the intimacy of his own home studio.

With original recordings executive-produced by Elvis Presley with producer Felton Jarvis
(who'd helmed most of Elvis' records from 1966-1977), Way Down In The Jungle Room brings
together, for the first time in one collection, master recordings and rare outtakes laid down
during two mythic sessions (February 2-8, 1976 and October 28-30, 1976) in Graceland's den--
known as the "Jungle Room"--which was converted into a professional caliber recording studio
for the purpose of capturing these indelible performances.

The outtakes have been newly mixed by Grammy Award-winning engineer Matt Ross-Spang at
Sam Phillips Recording in Memphis, Tennessee.

For these sessions, Elvis was backed by many members of his longtime touring band including:
James Burton (guitar), Ronnie Tutt (drums), David Briggs (keyboards), Glenn D. Hardin
(keyboards), Jerry Scheff (bass), Norbert Putnam (bass) and J.D. Sumner & the Stamps (vocals).

Be interesting to hear how this differs from the undubbed versions on "Our Memories of Elvis"

I hope "remixed" means that they remixed the original outtake tapes without adding new instrumentation and/or new back-up vocals. Clarification from Sony Legacy on this would be much appreciated.

Remix is a dirty word is my vocabulary. I'm fine with what I've got.

JerryNodak, all of the outtake tracks on CD-2 have recently been newly remixed/remastered at Phillips Recording Studio in Memphis. Is that enough for you to reconsider?

I've already got the FTD CDs covering these songs. I see no reason to buy this release.
