Whats the tracks? and may i be so bold as to ask why a shot of Elvis on stage if the songs are from the studio,i know rca did this through the years but never really understood it!

You know, this could be a legitimate release...if only Sony/BMG would get some energy together and issue it!
I totally agree,the june 1970 sessions are among my favorite,and yes over the 69 sessions,but i dont see that happening,boy would i love to be wrong!

bet it is the same pure diamonds 1-4 we already know . 'Something Old'
I was assuming this was from the same people who put out those pure diamonds cd's.but your probally right,maybe its just a knock off,shocking!

Ths rip off could also be called: Pure Diamonds Vol.1 to 4, Rough Cut Diamonds, For The Good Times. It`s a straight copy of these combined with a new fastly designed cover and voila....again...take the money and run...

CiscoKing, you are correct, I was a little disappointed with the same music I already had when I got it. The booklet is of really good quality though. They don't appear to be CD-R's either.

Just Got The Box. Great collection, no doubt...sound ranges from a 4 to a 5+, no rare pics at all in the booklet, but a lot of detail and narrative regarding these sessions. This collection is truly what the title says, undubbed masters of all the great songs included, so if you are looking to hear Elvis during takes and stuff (American Ways like) not the collection for you. Overall I'm very happy with this.

Got my box, too. I'm totally disappointed, that stuff is worse than these Tiger Man issues: very poor sound and don't tell me it's uncut (here and there maybe) and undubbed (never!!!), lot of crackles and noises (from LP's someone found in the attic ?) I paid 65 euro, that is 65 too much.
