New Import Label Patches It Up

October 30, 2006 | Music
Music For Fans is the name of a new import label. Their first release will be a "concept album", containing acetates from the June 1970 sessions and (rare) live recordings from 1970 to 1977 (to us this sounds like two concepts). The CD will be delivered with a 16 page booklet.

Are you sure it´s a silver disc..?? I am not...seems like a turkey to me..sorry.

Yes it's a real Factory pressed CD. The "concept" is singular in that the live songs are songs from the Elvis Country album material. Supposedly a lot of work has gone into "often difficult and delicate phase of restoring, remastering, and remixing of the chosen material. The final result is something we hope even Elvis would have enjoyed." I have not heard it yet so cannot comment.

Hi, looks like nothing new to me! Remixed acetates, well hardly not. The live tracks sounds like, they were taken from audience tape sources. Every single track has been released before, even on some collectors cdr. The artwork, too looks like someone spent too much time with his/her PC! Does not mean that it will be a bad release, but nothing new! Cheers

looks interesting in my first opinion, but let's wait and see

Mathias, to me it looks more like someone spent too little time behind the PC for the cover :-). Don't think I saw a many more amateurish ones before... gives little hope for the booklet, if these 16 pages are like the cover... Something to skip anyway, I'm sure the studio versions I have are more than enough, and the obscure live tracks destroy listening pleasure of the whole.

Sounds and looks good, the cover is interesting and also the songs seem to be a great mixture - I think someone really put feeling and interest in this piece of art. Lookig forwad on it....

Not too many releases had booklets with 16 pages. So, for sure a lot of work was done for it. I heard also it is a real cd, not cdr or poor mp3 sources... I'm sure the design will be great, and the concept with country songs and same songs sang live, as live years pages.. TCB

Is this out? Could someone give a review?

If the live tracks were all soundboard recording I would surely buy it. :) But it is not. Or a surprise??

I like aspects of this album and some of the effort, but share some of the initial skepticism of others here. Where have these acetates been heard? I know I have a few on import already. Even with repetition, I"m not against creative or conceptual repackagings, that is, if they can somehow deliver quality. We shall see.

Pass on this one,many of these so called acetates are to me not what they appear to be,and the live songs will be audiance recordings,will instead look forward to those 2 or is it 4 alabama shows from fort jr or sr or whoever!
