October 09, 2019 | Music

Memphis Recording Service (MRS) announced the 6CD/book combination Back In Living Stereo, with the essential masters, rare outtakes and homerecordings. 

MRS will release a 6CD/100-page book BACK-IN LIVING STEREO on 22nd November 2019 with a new CD housing package box set. 
The 6 CDs contain over 150 remastered tracks of the essential 1960- 1962 master recordings, plus rare alternate outtakes (including unreleased material) and all of the personal home recordings Elvis made during the 1960s.  All tracks have now been cleaned, repaired (there are too many to mention), and restored. The home recordings have now had the same mastering techniques as used so successfully on the recent MRS release Made in Germany. The set also includes unreleased recordings - including one that will have the Elvis world ‘all shook up’, as well as a previously unreleased stereo version of a home recordings. The 100 page book includes rare unpublished documents and photographs, supported by a comprehensive text discussing each of Elvis’ RCA studio (non-film) recording sessions held during 1960-62.

When they say "essential", it probably means a compilation of what they consider most important. I don't think it will be a "complete" 1960-1962 studio sessions set, which is a pity. I hope to be wrong.

wildfishie : i'm afraid you'll be right ! A Belgian Elviswebsite already announced that the moviesongs of the 1960-1962 studio-ses-sions will not be included in this release.

This will be essential as the 60s box without the movie songs but hopefully with unreleased material.

Pirzada again stealing intellectual property from, and breaching the copyright of, Sony. When the estate sued him all those years ago, he was crying about potentially losing his home but doesn't seem to have stopped him ripping off others. To be very clear, copyright protections extend to 70 years of first publication so any out-takes includes which Sony has released - and including others which the company hasn't means he has used stolen tapes - are still legally protected. I have reported to to Amazon, Trading Standards and Sony.

If the tracklist I've seen is true then this will be my first MRS release I will not buy. The first two CD are still ok. But what are the other 4 CDs here? In my opinion, this box is just money making for MRS. No thanks this time.

I share Pinkie's concerns. I only buy Sony/BMG/RCA product. I don't loke to encourage piracy.

You’re’ Driving Me Crazy .. Is this the title they announced as "One title that will shake the Elvis world"? Also take 7 on Going Home sees it's first release. Maybe they will use uncut homerecording-tapes, too. Let's see what it is and then yell.
