I have the discs. I have no need for the vinyl. If you're a vinyl collector, go for it!

I love elvis, i love vinyl, but this digital sounding cd-rips costs double the price of normal (double) lps, but dont offer anything special, like great innersleeves, booklets (not a regular thing when we talk about vinyl, but more common on new releases than some might think)). Stuff that releases from other artists contains, also from artist that doesn't sell millions of copies. These ftds are just a very cheap and careless way to cash in. Some of the first releases from ftd on vinyl where nice, yes, but the quality has dropped immensely from ok to crap (even the covers aren't as solid - in terms of the material they use - as they have been). I can't find any reason to buy those releases anymore.. Personally i decided to support artist that are alive and kicking with my money, I'll buy there vinyl-releases (two or three releases in better quality than this here for the same money ) instead of supporting this cheap made but super expensive bs.

This suits me - but it would be nice to have Flaming Star, Wild in the Country and Follow that Dream on LPs, there's more than enough material to fill three albums. My only gripe is that i would have liked to have seen more original albums and master takes on vinyl. The Last Movies double LP was great but lacked some master takes, even Suspicious Minds has yet to make to FTD vinyl so a little more creativity is needed by Ernst and Roger
