The announcement of the second volume in the "Memphis Recording Service" series received mixed reactions again, therefor our poll: "I'm looking forward to volume 2 to the Memphis Recording Service set" 74 percent does, and 26 percent doesn't, this shows there is a market for these releases. The set is already available for pre-order.
For our new poll we like to know your opinion on the upcoming Follow That Dream release "Writing For The King" with tracks by the King and performances by the authors on the demo's Elvis used to create his version.

It's a good idea, but not executed the way it should have been. It should have been the original demo followed by Elvis' version of the same song...hopefully a different take to the known one. The concert disc seems pointless.

I think people in charge are working hard to maintain any interest for the FTD serie. They tries this concept, hoping fans will be curious enough to like to know what were these demos we've heard about for years. I agree with these demos being put on a separate CD, because I'm sure they will not be listened quite often. There are just parts of History. I'm a fan, so I buy all the FTDs.

I agree a little bit with RonBaker exept the last line (The concert disc seems pointless.)It's a good idea, but not executed the way it should have been. It should have been the original demo followed by "different" Elvis' version of the same song...hopefully a different take to the known one.

The concept was fine. The execution is faulty. I'm a fan, too. But I don't buy every FTD release. I'm not buying this one. Must I buy every release to be a fan??

I think that I perhaps worded my response wrong. I'm not against the concert disc...I just think that it doesn't belong in THIS particular package.

RonBaker: I agree with you. I think the concert disc would have made a great FTD regular release in 2007.
