Elvis in absolutely great form in Chicago ? mmmmmm, don't agree....
Elvis was in better shape looked better and that was evident in these performances so i don't agree with you Ton Bruins so i will buy this one for sure

If there are truly newly found outtakes from the Jailhouse Rock sessions, this could be the FTD of the year, heck of all time! No true Elvis fan should be without it. Its recorded at the peak of his rise.

Jailhouse Rock will be the first FTD I will buy in years. No one was more at the top of his game than Elvis was in 1957, and JR was arguably his greatest triumph. He was now the undisputed King of rock and roll, the movies & records were at their best, and he had Leiber & Stoller with him in the studio. Any new recordings with all these elements will be a joy to welcome.

Congratulations EPE --- the Chicago '76 soundboard concerts have been available as 'imports' for years. Running out of new material? Get real.
JerryNodak wrote on December 14, 2010
Just because something has been available as a bootleg, errrr... I mean import, for years doesn't mean it was readily availble to everyone. What's EPE got to do with FTD releases? Running out of new material? Well, Elvis has been dead for more than 33 years. The cupboard must be getting just a tad bare.
Steve V wrote on December 14, 2010
Basically there has been no new material for 33 years except for Danny, Beyond The Reef , and I'm A Roustabout! Everything else has been outtakes , soundboards and bad sounding concerts like the 1961 Benefit. The only thing that can be counted as 'new' to me is a newly discovered unreleased song cut in the studio and there aren't any to be found.

Running out of new material? Yes, of course they are and have been since 1977. When I say they, I obviously mean RCA/BMG/Sony and not EPE who are not, and never were, a record company.

Anyone heard if the replacement disc from the "Fool" set is shipping as well ?
kink56 wrote on December 18, 2010
I was notified yesterday that my Fool replacement disc was shipped, but my order for Fool, Jailhouse Rock V2, How Great Thou Art and Boston Gardens has NOT shipped yet, so it looks like I will hear disc 2 of Fool before I hear the actual Fool release!

Shame on FTD and Sony ! Those many mistakes should no longer happen, if you are serious in getting our business. It'll backfire on you E & R. Four more to go (FTD releases) and that's it. Sloppy work boys...Be more alert; they are paying you too much to let these mistakes happen ! Since you never respond to good suggestions and recommendations that make more sense than what and how you've been handling the FTD business, it's just normal that these mistakes happen....also the BMG label is at fault here. Too many young kids that handle an american, no:a world icon...too much on their plate...and it shows. Madison Ave exec quality is no longer what it used to be at RCA....
