Two Versions "Viva Las Vegas"

June 18, 2007 | Music
“Viva Las Vegas” is being released in 2 different formats at the end of July. In the US/ Canada/ Latin America as a 1 CD compilation on July 31st, and a 2CD special edition in the rest of the world on July 30th. Ernst Jorgensen confirmed this to us when we checked it.

There is going to be a TV documentary made, and once there is confirmation of where and when it will be placed, we will schedule a regular 1CD version for the rest of the world to market on the back of that show. It is already slated for broadcast in the US in September, hence the dual strategy.

In the meantime the decision has been made that for most international markets we will release the 2CD deluxe version now, which is more of a fan based release as the concentration for mass market will be on The Essential/ The King 2CD hits set.

Tracks CD 2:

1) Blue Suede Shoes
2) I Got A Woman
3) All Shook Up
4) Love Me Tender
5) Jailhouse Rock/ Don't Be Cruel
6) Heartbreak Hotel
7) Hound Dog
8) Memories
9) Mystery Train/ Tiger Man
10) Monologue/ Lifestory
11) Baby What You Want Me To Do
12) Runaway
13) Are You Lonesome Tonight?
14) Yesterday/ Hey Jude
15) Introductions
16) In The Ghetto
17) Suspicious Minds
18) What'd I Say
19) Can't Help Falling In Love

A previously unreleased Elvis concert-recorded in Las Vegas, August 1969 (date not yet given).
