If they wouldn't release it I wouldn't have asked for it. FTD vinyl are not for me. Give me the 4 CD 'Complete Sessions' set instead.

Outstanding cover. Looks really good. I will buy it. Hope that FTD will bring a CD Box very soon.

Do you remember the book " Elvis by Dagmar " ? The cover picture is from there. But I don´t collect Elvis on vinyl anymore. Happy days for those who does.

I'll be getting this. This cover looks more dynamic than the original. If its mastered at Abbey Road like many of the other vinyls I'm sure the sound will blow me away.

All tracks should be alternate takes/unbubbed master instead of including overdubbed masters. I will most likely order this so my 1970s FTD vinyl collection is complete.
