If anyone here has FTD contacts, please give them the message. Elvis On Tour Box Set, done properly, (for example with Hampton Roads missing songs included, Greensboro Bridge opening fixed, etc....) It would be their best release ever, and a guaranteed huge seller! Come on... If you worry about his legacy... Release April ‘72, Not more ‘76!! What are they thinking?

I hope desperately the 4 shows recorded for ELVIS ON TOUR (1 figure already in close up) then I wish a treatment classic album for IN CONCERT and the CAMDEN albums flaming star, let's be friends, almost in love...

santiagisitestar, Sony/FTD have missed the boat (so-to-speak) with the Elvis On Tour material. Just go with the bootlegs that are already available. They sound great!

I only speak of soundboard recordings..nothing more.

You say they can only release what they have. Ok, bring on Elvis On Tour!!!! How long must we wait. No excuses!! One show has already seen a release on close up box set. So I know it’s possible!

2 shows never released before in any form and not the worst from this year and you get 2 for 1 as always.
What more can a collectors label do for the fans. And they can only release what Elvis legacy gives. Some are really spoilt.

Yes, folks I know that. There is a discussion in every Elvis forum. But we don´t know right now if these concerts were in the correct speed or not.

Gladyslove, are you not aware that FTD has released several soundboards in the past that play too slowly? ...and many fans rightfully complained about that. The FTD team didn't take the time to make corrections from the 40+ year old cassettes when they transferred the recordings to CD. That's why I'll be waiting for reviews on this set.

If you own a stack of Elvis concert CDs from a certain year and play them often there will be a sameness to them. Whether in '69 or '74. That's just the way it/Elvis was. As for adding missing songs from a certain tape by borrowing from a different concert on the same tour or whatever, I believe that's been done, but there were complaints, Elvis fans are spoiled. And the complainiest.

Correct speed !? These shows are unavailable and afaik new in this form as soundboard but why do you speak of speed correction did you hear the tapes ???

Gorse, "same old tired songs" wasn't a complaint... just an observation. I will actually purchase this set under 2 conditions...
#1 - If Elvis is in a good, upbeat mood
#2 - If FTD has the true, correct speed of the recordings transferred to the CDs ... I'll be waiting to read the reviews.

Gorse makes a valid point. As far as the discs go couldn't disc one have been completed using the last songs from another show?

Gorse : how right you are !!!
Gladyslove (profilecontact) wrote on Jan 11, 2019report abuse
We will hear if Elvis is in a good mood. Wasn´t it at that time around that he fell out of the car caused of medication ???
Gorse (profilecontact) wrote on Jan 11, 2019report abuse
I find it interesting when fans complain about the same old songs and why didn't he change the selected list. The problem for us is that we via these releases can now go to 100's of concerts each year as opposed to the average fan in the 1970's who perhaps would have seen him a couple of times over 3 years, and absorbed the sheer vibrancy of the occasion.

Same old tired songs, but hopefully FTD will at least get the speed of the original recordings right on the CDs.
