Australian Releases Update

July 23, 2007 | Music
Sony BMG Australia have delayed the release of "Elvis The King" and the limited edition "Viva Las Vegas" 2 CD set by one week to August 3. "The Early Years" will be released on July 28 as originally planned.

This first release of "Viva Las Vegas" is a limited edition double set and will include a previously unreleased Elvis concert recorded in Las Vegas, August 1969 and will be available for a limited time only.

A single disc version of "Viva Las Vegas" will be released at a later date, at this time scheduled for November. There is going to be a TV documentary made, and when this is available the single disc version will be released.

Also scheduled for release in Australia in November is a 'cut down' un-numbered version of the "Elvis The King" UK singles box set.

The Australian release of "Elvis The King", a 2-disc CD companion album, will contain the bonus tracks "Welcome To My World" on Disc 1 and on Disc 2 the live Elvis version of "If I Can Dream".

Please tell me if I'm wrong but as far as I know there is no live-version of "If I can dream". Even the "new" performance of it on the Deluxe-DVD was playback.

Yes, you are wrong. When Elvis performed it at the end of his 2 stand up shows, it was pre-recorded (playback). But when he performed it dressed in his white suit, it was live and there are different takes.

That's an error! They meant "If I Can Dream" duet (with Céline Dion), not a live version.
