Why pay money for something you already have?I know there are some fans who have to have everything, but why?This release is just trash.Don't support the money grabbing cowboys.Elvis signed to RCA,any other UNofficial release which we have already should NOT be supported by us fans. Do we really want his greatest work released at bargain prices in shoddy packaging?Screw you EU.

If CD KING collects Elvis CD's then it's obvious to all he will already have these tracks a hundred times over but thanks for pointing it out. If that's what he does then lay off, CD KING collects ELVIS CD's.....GET IT?

I have all these tracks many times over, plus even some super rare Sun acetates/Promos that nobody has. As a completist-I collect every release whether its a BMG/RCA or Bootleg/Import - anything as long as its a new CD. I have 24 different versions of those Lousiana Hayride CDs. My collection, a total of over 2,000 Elvis Presley CDs worldwide. Don't call me crazy, just call me CD King.

Mister Cool,i totally agree with you.It really is a crime that anyone can now put these tracks out.But don't worry too much bout that Cd king,he always seems to say what a great looking cd it is and how he's gonna buy it.Probably would say the same about a cd with just Old Mcdonald on it in a blank cover.

CD king:if you're REALLY a cd king you'll have all these tracks already.And if you haven't:then you need glasses. The cover is trash.

Great looking Cd- I will definately buy this.

I really don't want to see these tracks and subsequent Elvis recordings put out by cheap labels in shoddy packaging(the cover is dreadful) at a knockdown price.My guess is this cd will probably sell at around £3.99.It devalues these recordings.So in just a few years time anyone can put out a 50's box set and sell it at a cheap price.The US have got it right with their copyright law.My advice to anyone thinking of buying this cd:Don't.Stick to BMG and don't give your money to these moneygrabbing cowboys.

PaulFromFrance, of course you're right. It is 2012 for the Beatles--just seven years away. Of course in the US, Sonny Bono changed the legislation and the copyright is extended another 25 years for a total of 75.

Of course, there is something new: now, we'll not have to pay high price to own some Elvis stuff. BMG has enough of my money. I'll buy this one, if the sound quality is as good as BMG. And... doctor, for the Beatles, it's not 2022, but 2012.

Mister Cool is right. However, copyright laws in the E.U. last for only 50 years. By 2022 the Beatles will also suffer the same fate. Of course, if these new compilations are considerably cheaper than BMG, perhaps this will drive prices down to a more realistic level, and people can continue to buy from the original source. Let's face it folks: until now, under "RCA" comtrol, we have been asked to pay top money for compilation after compilation, long after so much profit had been raked in by the label for the same music.

Am i right in saying nothing new here? It just doesn't seem right that anyone can now put these tracks out legally.For better or worse Elvis signed to RCA,now BMG-Sony.Its that company alone which should own and use all His music.These historic recordings can now be issued by any cowboy trader or even given away in tawdry newspapers.Its a real shame.
