Electric stereo sound, you can find them on a lot of Elvis cds from the 80s. It´s a fake I don´t need. Why do they release something like that ??? Surely not for me. I am not a " I must have all " collector.

Hi Gorse, to be honest : I haven't the slightest idea how this electronic stereo sounds. You are absolutely right about Japan being ahead of Elvis projects ( and of many other things). Maybe I have been a bit too hasty with my comment. After all it could be a pleasant surprise if it's done in the right way, I mean : NOT the band in one channel and the voice in the other for example !
Problem is : will this set be available in Europe ? If so I'm always prepared to have a listen. Best regards !

I have always thought Japan was ahead of the game with Elvis projects and were quite inventive with their releases I am not a purist like musician Benny Scott, or have the ear , so happily accept the electronic tag, I note the nice mix of tracks that have been selected, but my personal preference is to put a maximum of 2 ballads in a row as opposed to 3 and 4, but as I say that is just me.

Electronic stereo ? No thanks ! I stick to the original sound, but : "to each his own".
