Great cover but not enough to make want to buy this rehashed compilation. I hope the songwriters get their well deserved royalities from these releases. I doubt they will. I hope I'm wrong.

I was wondering the same thing re the songwriters. Do you think these companies really pay the Songwriters???

The European 50 year copyright expiration of recorded material copyright is just that - recorded material. The songwriters' rights are still protected - I believe for 90 years - and they will still receive their royalties. It is the performers and or their Estates, (and the original record company) who will receive nothing, unless the performer has written the material being re-released by an unauthorised publisher.

What bothers me about the copyright-thing is NOT that Sony/BMG/RCA doesn’t get paid (like Greg Nolan said: they’ve had fifty years to work with this material and profit from it), but the fact that the songwriters don’t get paid either. Some of them are still alive you know. And some of them aren’t filthy stinkin’ rich either. For some of them a song recorded by Elvis Presley is a serious meal ticket. A meal ticket that they do not receive any longer because of the copyright law. Somebody else is now making money with material that belongs to the composers. That is legalized theft!

Tony: You and I have these countless times, but new generations of Elvis fans don't, all there is in the stores are the current hits/gospel/christmas releases. You have a point about newly discovered recordings. Let's hope someone will find it is worth the cost of purchasing/remastering the recording to be first on the market.

I would imagine that the producers of this CD use the word unreleased loosely. They probably mean that these out-takes were unreleased for many year, until BMG released them and they legally pirated them. I am very strongly against the European fifty year copyright law, and I support Cliff Richard in his campaign to have it extended. I do not think the law works in favour of die hard Elvis fans. For example, if BMG were to discover a live Elvis recording in private hands, they would have to purchase the rights to it and remaster the recording, only to see legally released copies of their finished product sold for a fraction of the price. People think it is good that Elvis' recordings are becoming available at very cheap prices, but we already have these countless times in our collections.

I don't have a problem with the European copyright law at all. RCA has had fifty years to work with this material (i.e. profit from it) and the artist in question is dead about 30 years to boot. Still, I'll side with thenexte and say that 2006's "ELVIS PRESLEY- SPECIAL EDITION" as remastered by Kevan Budd (and including all of the above and with other stuff) is still the album to beat. Nice cover and all, but can this one beat the FTD's original album cover? No way.

I don't see how anybody could possibly get excited over these types of releases, that are simply rehashing what's already out there in an effort to make a quick buck on the copyright situation. It's quite obvious that tracks 1-18 are lifted straight from the official 2005 album reissue, why the addition of ten more bonus tracks [all of which have been reissued countless times on any number of boots] would make this set superior to the official version is really beyond me. You must truly be kidding yourself with such an assessment!

I'm VERY happy with this European copyright stuff. 50 years is far enough. Elvis is dead and I don't see the need to give more money to his heiress, BMG, and his so-called widow. Now, we will have some garbages, I agree, but also some good stuff like this one. I love the picture, and the songs list is far more enjoyable than the last FTD or any 1977 stuff. If I can find it here, I'll buy it for sure.

to those who have written that they wish there was new stuff, I see quite a few songs here that are unreleased, but then again the well is only so deep, and sometimes you get sludge from the side of the well, but at least it is new sludge.

In the best of worlds, the Elvis catalouge would be complete, perfectly remastered, structured in a logical and historically correct way (somewhat difficult to combine...) and available in all stores to a budget price so that new Elvis fans all over the world can enjoy the best music ever made. Now, that will never happen. Even if you find out about FTD and pay full price you can not yet get all the original recordings. With all the new CDs due to the copyright law it will at least be possible to find the recordings out there. Who is making the money does not matter that much to me. Elvis could have used them so he would not have needed to go on those last tours or make some of the worst movies, but now I don't see the point in supporting BMG. They have had their chance. FTDs I keep buying faithfully though so they keep coming.

Think about it: some twenty years from now and the entire Elvis catalogue will be copyright free. The market will be flooded with releases.

But EJF, if the copyright law ran out on Elvis movies and the ones so far unreleased on DVD suddenly appeared in decent quality you would probably be more than happy! You have to take the good with the bad. The copyright laws in Europe mean that a number of classic albums by the likes of Nat King Cole, Sammy Davis and Woody Herman make their way to CD for the first time next time. You can't have it all ways.

And here goes... another bunch... CRAP with big C. Please, EU, change the copyright laws... 50 years is way too little ... everyone can do his 1953-1957 crappy discs now....

This is verging on the ridiculous. Something has to definitely be done about the ridiculous European 50-year copyright laws. Perhaps extended to 500 years! Is it possible Sony/BMG cannot do anything about it?
