Well thats sneaky.

This is not exactly news (and not especially "sneaky"), but I guess it's just being spotted now. The latest U.S. version of "Ultimate Gospel" (by Elvis) has the same sticker, along with the altered track listing. As with "The Essential" set, Sony/BMG is releasing them as part of a series of other big-name acts in the stable. I don't have a real problem with it.

The Johnny Cash - Ultimate Gospel CD has a similar sticker on the front 'Also look for Elvis Presley - Ultimate Gospel'

It's a very poor attempt to pull out money from the fans pocket. (P.S.: The cover is terrible. Amateurs.)

Nein, if it is something that I have listened to while in England recently, then it is NO CRAP at all for EP Collectors. In the UK they called it different but different shows in rather good quality of different concerts in different cieties) Don't recall if it was 1975....But if it is, then "where" are those 14 or more concerts we want to buy in a Box of those fab years gone by 1970till77 ?? Sultan, Steve, Greg and Cisco might be proven wrong this time. To be continued.

Wow - this looks like the best value and most entertaining box set ever!! Elvis was great in June/July '75 :-)

Are there 500 people to buy this? I would think not but then again.

It's funny how Elvisnews.com informs us of every obscure bootleg release and forgets about some of the more interesting producers

SwindlerElvis (oops,i mean: ImmerElvis!),you've just registered today and you immediately started to praise this box set. Isn't it surprising a little bit? I guess you are the producer of this...uhm..CRAP! Another piece of junk from Germany. Stolen crap. Quick buck. There are dollar signs in your eyes. <$$> <$$>

It should have been released by ABBA fans.... money, money, money...
ImmerElvis wrote on January 13, 2009
How could you say that Geert. My friend I just heard it while in England and I am NOT the producer; Far from it...I spend money to buy good quality EP shows and concerts. One I heard had decent quality called Good damn show, und the other Moody Blue (carrying the rare version of MBlue) plus others. But yes, there have been and there are so many rip offs that onebecomes very suspicious. So Geert, Linda and other serious opinion leaders amongst EP fans (not some of those know-it-all fellows); Why don't they check it out; again it was in the UK not in Deutschland Has Rex returned maybe ?

I don't think that this 14 cd box isn't that bad because a lot of Elvis fans does not have all of this material. The price is about the 70 / 80 euro so that's not even 6 euro for each cd. I didn't read bad things about the re-release The Brightest Star on Sunset Boulevard Volume 1 and 2 so a lot of fans missed the first release. The same is for this one, I think it's nice to have a Elvis "Tour" cd box. I also read ".... money, money, money..." but don't forget that's for every bootleg release, also the very good one ! Nothing wrong with this box, and no...I am also NOT the producer.

31/5 and 1/6: Nashville?? They mean Huntsville: at the Von Braun civic center. The only 2 shows in Nashville were on july 1st 1973. Quick buck means bad research...

Ooh goodie! This means we can buy all these shows we've already got again. Isn't it great being an Elvis fan?
ImmerElvis wrote on January 19, 2009
Yes, Genedin, it IS great to be an Elvis fan (for more than 40 years) and being able to select what you wanna buy yourself. The bigger and wider the offer, the better, I feel. Fans that like concerts and show will definietly have a ball with such releases...be it on Madison, Memory or StrArrow or FTD labels...we don't care as long as we got what we want, right guys?! Now can someone REPLY to this question: what are the great performances on this one (reply wanted from serious people who were there or who know/have heard those shows before) ???? I am interested to know which ones were the good shows. By the way, this concept should be broadened and boxes such as this should become available from tour concerts from 70 till 1977

Hello, 14 cd s is a lot. Quality is great for the price offered. Ok material was available before but not everyone is able to pick any new * import *.Also for the price it is not that bad. Keeping in mind that a single cd might cost you between 15 to 19 euro s. Picked my copy at local shop. The guy who sells usually is in indie stuff and punk . Even he was amazed at sound quality and impressed at Elvis his performances. Maybe another follower who will see that Elvis invented the real punk in the 50 s and was for more inventive than any white stripe will ever be. Just a personal opinion. If you have all the concerts skip this one, if not and you are completely into Elvis buy it. Personally I love these box sets saves time to find all the individual releases.
