6363 Sunset Volume 2

June 15, 2019 | Music

We all remember the "good old days" when FTD released their first releases like "The Jungle Room Sessions", "Fame and Fortune" and "Out in Hollywood". Those CDs were in our players for weeks, due to all the unreleased stuff, great sound quality and last but not least the fact there were a lot of complete outtakes never heard before. After a while, although the releases were still fantastic, we got more and more CDs with lots of outtakes from the same songs, great for collecting, but listening pleasure was a bit less fun...

The second release from MTP records is out now and will be another fan favorite! Included are some very hard to find outtakes and rehearsals recorded at RCA's Hollywood, California studios. This time, not only do we get tracks from '72 and '75 since there are also some essential tracks from the August 16, 1974 rehearsal, where Elvis made a completely new line up for his upcoming engagement. Also included are some rare string overdubbed versions from the May 8, 1972 session. This new release is at least as good as the first volume and is "Meant to be Played"

Nothing new on this CD, but very nicely put together and nice to listen to. Of course you really do not need this CD.
