"I Gotta Know" is missing too.

looks good, but all songs previously released.

I think it's stretching it a little to a call the backing singers duets. You would in that case have to include all of the Jordanaires recordings with Elvis. Including things like "Who Needs Money". I would have like to have seen the songs where Elvis dueted with himself and sang harmony with himself, instead of the Million Dollar Quartet songs, that have been released to death too. This is an interesting release nontheless. It just maybe needed a little more thought.

Okay "who needs money" is included, but you know what I mean...lol
Rob Wanders wrote on March 21, 2007
it looks nice, and I'm probably going to buy it, but a "duet"" is a song between 2 people, when there are 3 people then it's a "terzet, 4: a "quartet" etc. So these are not all duets. Therefore they should have given it a different name.

Will this be for sale in the US?
Steve V wrote on March 21, 2007
A big yawn - nothing new. And to actually spend money on a CD that features watered down movie duets with Joan O'Brien, Donna Butterworth , Vicki Tui and other notable rockers, cmon! Sure wish Elvis would have recorded songs with some notables in the music world, not just the Million Dollar Quartet stuff. If he had lived, I believe that would have eventually happened. Why wasnt that damn tape recorder turned on when the Beatles visited?
Anton wrote on March 22, 2007
If you wanna go that way...why not Y're the boss, Petunia, My wish came true, Zodiac,There's nothing like a song, Chesay, a.o. Do you really think it will sell millions? 'mon sensible folks... we're not in the Blue Mountains here and believe that BMG would be selling at least 250 thousand copies of the Double Album CDs if they'd add bonus songs like full ( min version of D't think2X, Hurt XXXrated version, Prom Land XXXrated etc etc on FTD of course.....How about that for starters ? For sure that many EP fans will buy such stuff and throw away their old albums or CDs of those Fool, Now, LLetters, etc collection (and with good reason). We forgot of course the million seller with AnnMargret...TT&Forever....

No relation to the article really, but am I the only one missing the point of the previous post???
Steve V wrote on March 22, 2007
Mark - you are not the only one who missed it. I didnt get it at all.

The cover looks a little like "Elvis Latino!" And I didn't understand what Anton (that's my real name) said!
Anton wrote on March 23, 2007
How about including "The Lady loves me"? If that isn't a famous duet, what is? Yet, how stupid, they just missed it! Shame on you Denmark's BMG. What's your name kid? Ernst or your english mate Roger? How asleep are you? For more suggestions that do make sense, try to read our earlier comments! Readers, please do comment on this...they are on the loose and have lost the horizon...at EPE Mgmt and BMG. Chris and Henrik and J-Marc and Peter and so many other die-hard EP fans, where are you? Now is the time to raise your voice in the interest of all!
Anton wrote on March 23, 2007
Steve, Mark and Jimmy: suggest you reaqd carefully again my comments. They're pretty up front ... let's do it the right way...not release stuff that doesn't sell...but release serious CDs and duets if you like. Frank, Nancy, Ann-Margret, Donna, Kathy, Millie, Sherill, DJ, but no junk please. Why did you not respond to other, much more important suggestions and recommendations re. future releases we have been waiting for, like EonTour plus DVD, Enhanced/upgraded on FTD EinPerson, EonStage, TTWII (live renditions) plus DVD of show, Movie outtakes of the rest of movies, Double Albums on FTD with added songs (interesting ones!!!), Studio session outtakes of PromLand, GMan, BLove a.o. C'mon everybody....write and let them know your frustrations. Or do you really dig everything they come up with? If you put your mind at it, you'll remember what we want....
Steve V wrote on March 23, 2007
Anton - If you read my previous comment, I dont like this release at all. I think its a bad one and I wont buy it. I just didnt undertand your blog, thats all. Didnt get your point.
Anton wrote on March 24, 2007
Steve, please re-read my comments on 2 blogs, read more slowly now than before. they are pretty straight forward and clear, even giving examples of how a Duet CD should perhaps be done. However, I am with Ally, Jerome, Jimmy, Cat and mature people. don't like the concept neither. yet, that is what BMG has gotten down to junk that some marketing (so called) guru at Madison Ave wants to "try out", sounds juppie and very newyork style or Chelsea style if you know what I mean. Does not sound at all like Ernst and Roger or Chris and Henrik, etc. But it seems to us that NO-ONE has gotten any influence over the marketing boys who are handling elvis products while they were still not born yet when our King was alive. So how are they going to get the huge, unprecedented profits for BMG that EPE is also waiting for? No way.

Anton, the reason this crap is released is because first of all its a bootleg and although they the bootleggers have given many fine products, too many like this escape,i have no interest in these type of releases,i never listen to alot of these songs to begin with,and im sure not gonna pay good money too have them put together on a 2 cd set, also alot of these are not duets,unless duet has changed in meaning!
