Crome Dreams over the years have tried to bring out interesting compilations, The Complete Sun sessions,The Complet 56,57 and now 58 sessions, nothing new of course but have to say all together the packaging and compilations are much better than the usual Public domain same old releases are?....look forward to future releases from these people and at £9 for a 2 cd set it's not going to break the bank.
More pilfering of the Elvis catalogue now that the 50's output is in the public domain. It may not be against the law but it's still criminal.
dannyboy1. tell me why you call it criminal. In the 70's 80's and 90's there were ,K-tel ,Arcade,EVA and many. These albums sold very,very well,. Then nobody complains.Ok there are labels that bring ripp-offs and mostly cd-r.Burned at home.In that case you're right.And also cd-r versions of old RCA cd's While you pay on some site almost 15 euro's ,while the costs are 50 cents. ánd in that case you're right. But these company brings good compilation for a few euro's . And thats a better release then a compilation or a movie cd with a very,very short playtime.But what's criminal. So when people buy it they are criminals. Think before you say something.You acuused people who buy's a official product.And banana?. i think on cd 2 are the movie versions. But it's only for the general cd buyers.nothing new for the fan
japio, well put and agree with all you have said,the cd-r problem has been on going for some time and have lost count of the number of Camden,K-tel,Arcadeto name a few that have had the cd-r treatment and charge strong money for what they cost to produce. The Crome Dreams releases give you nothing new contents wise but are streets ahead of the same old public Domain releases....get a copy and see just what the differences are with this label compared to the other cheapies out there...hey you may be surprised!.....if not for you no problem but as a avid Elvis collector i like them and again look forward to other releses from these people.
OurKing. Ersnt (or have do i say sony) has the sessions tapes.I read also in a book from a year or two ago.There tells Ger Rijf how they invited by RCA to come for to clean up the vaults.And he tells that they also find the session tapes of king creole. But i read in 1989 ( time flies i know) in a magazine also what tehy have found.And almost all what they found then are released on FTD
So they have the king creole tapes.But it stays in the vaults for a long time..But indeed this cd is a nice compilation for the wider public.
