Nashville Revisited

July 02, 2017 | Music

More computer generated C-R-A-P in the 'Spliced Takes' series has been announced by the STAR / CMT import label: Spliced Takes Nashville Revisited

From the press-release:
Another "must have" release in this great series, this time even more edits / splices were done to make an exceptional album, where tracks sound so much different then what is out there, no fake overdubs, but some tracks have been overdubed, using snippets from the actual "recording sessions" 

Devil In Disguise for example does not fade out, but has a great new ending, including two guitar solos. 
Gold In The Mountains has been overdubbed with a more fuller drumbeat on some parts, and has been extended. 
Like A Baby "you do the intro" Elvis said during the session, but here, we have Elvis himself playing it, and on the end, the guitar has been included once more.
Dirty, Dirty Feeling sounds so much different since lots of parts from the session have been included, and it's Elvis who does the ending "Gone..." instead of Ray Walker.
Stranger In The Crowd , no complete outtake of this song excists, here we get an extended "rehearsal" version, which sound wonderful
It Ain't No Big Thing,  again our man does the intro, and a very different version is made.
I'll Never Know here outtakes are combined with the master overdubs.
On the first "Nashville" most tracks were from the sixties. Here we get a good portion of seventies selections, and well as a fifties track, all recorded in Nashville.

A Elvis fan, a friend of mine, told me that he find these star cds " super. " I asked him if he´s drunk. I just can´t believe it. I am shocked.

As an Elvis fan of 50 years plus I do not look on myself as a moron and certainly no drunk but Star have given me countless hours of pleasure and entertainment over the years. both in their 25 Alternate Masters series and DVD's. Not everything is a success but without their projects there would be months of waiting for the official releases. I use many of their efforts as a base to produce my own DVD's for private use, and now have the knowhow to produce my own spliced CD tracks.. So carry on guys , and yes some of us can do it ourselves if we are prepared to buy the basic information (Cd's/DVD's) and spend hours and hours creating the finished article.

Fine, if you like this kind of stuff, Gorse. This friend knows how I meant it when I said to him if he´s drunk. We are still buddies and have a laugh about it and other things.
