Why these releases are so special.

1. It’s truly a brand new show.

2. It’s from a tour not previously covered by FTD (I don’t count the few outtakes on Spring Tours ’77).

3. The medley "Bosom of Abraham" / "You Better Run" has never been released live before.

4. "Love Me Tender" and "Steamroller Blues" have never been previously released from 1977.

5. The bonus songs "Any Day Now", "True Love Travels On A Gravel Road", "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face", "Fever", "Portrait Of My Love" and "I'm Leavin' It All Up To You" have been released on imports before but never in this quality.

Well, Orion, if Amarillo Concert is an "average" standard show like Minnesota or Birmingham or Dallas, then I won't buy that FTD ! That simple. Hate to buy those...(feeling ripped off by FTD). Yes, Schemies, you are so right, my friend: those missing classic album outtakes are mpuch better than Stage Rehearsals and Pot Luck double CD (we also have those outtakes over and over on other FTD CDs--so why again release them???) Unless it's by popular request/demand by people like Steve who likes those perhaps. When will FTD release 2 of the all time best Vegas shows : Aug 1, 1970 and Aug 6, 1969 (fantastic Baby what do y w m t do + great funny life story like never before done...W h e n Ernst are
you gonna give us also Vegas shows from '71 with Elvis singing different great versions of 'It's impossible' and 'Impossible dream' ??? Also agree with Bob W saying that FTD should update MSqG and EinConcert (with more songs?) and release those as well as the one mentioned above of the actual soundtrack of TTWII movie songs; as long as they put them in a Box with a l l those Stage Rehearsal songs (see above). Then, we'll be all shook up !

Another ‘missed’ (sales) opportunity. Ernst could have sold many thousands more of FTD digipacks If only he had released this Stage Rehearsals CD ‘together’ with CD soundtrack of the movie TTWII (never released officially by BMG) a n d added also these rehearsals to it on the second CD in the Box:Filmed rehearsals of Washed my hand in mud, Money Honey, Baby let’s play house, slow version of Stranger in own home town, Oh happy days, I was the one and Merry Xmas baby. And added also Such a night & A fool such as I rehearsals. Why let a golden (huge) sales opportunity slip away….? When is the FTD-Team gonna take some elementary marketing lessons? We all wonder.

I, unlike to nay-sayers on here, am looking forward to both of these releases. The soundboards in the "Final Curtain" set from these tours sound good. I am confident that this one (Amarillo) will sound as good. I realize that this concert is pretty much a "standard" show, but I look at as the man only toured three more months before leaving us. To me, that makes this one worth having. The other release has been a wish of mine for a while. I've always thought the rehearsal of "You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin'" was almost as good as a studio version of this song. It only needs the person who masters the track to mix out Elvis' directions to the lighting guy and his talking right at the start and it'd be perfect. Anyway, looking forward to both releases.

Hey, and if the rehearsals are from the afternoon of August 10th, why are there 2 songs missing ? They should have been on this CD as well as all the others. Again this is edited stuff, what a pitty.
schemies (profilecontact) wrote on May 27, 2011report abuse
Still waiting for "Promised Land", "He Touched Me", "Flaming Star" and "G.I.Blues". Much better than rehearsals or '77 concerts, correct ?

I see the usual 'i don't need this crap' are about and of course have nothing but negative comments to make,i don't get it if it a import they moan,now FTD are trying to do things as they should and they moan about that as well.. .tell you what i would be bloody interested in knowing exactly what you do buy. For me all 3 will be in my postbag and let's hope FTD respond to the fans/collector's in the same way they have with these 3 new releases.
p.s Realize some fans have everything Elvis recorded?? for me still a life time challenge and enjoy every minute of it.

Stage Rehearsal is top to me. A nice addition to our collection. I'll wait for Amarillo and see how people react to the sound quality. I know it's a soundboard but some sound beter than others it seems. Or does it? As for the vinyl, although Pot Luck is a favorite of mine, a very special one for personnal reason, it's would be illogical - Spock reasoning here - to buy a thing that will only be stored as a collector's items in my library. Tempting but foolish to me. I guess Ernst is saving Classics for the fall. At least here, we have "something for everybody": (sounds familiar...?;-)

really looking forward to all 3 of them, great job! and then our fingers crossed that they will bring out Elvis In Concert. We (well a lot of us) are longing for that one, Ernst!

I am happy about the 1977 soundboard recording mostly, few reasons for that one of them is that its never been released official & unofficial, No bootleg cd, neither did i thought it would exist and now to find out it does & in soundboard im happy to buy this! Also im very thrilled by the idea we finally get elvis his last version of steamroller blues from Austin, March 28 1977, The audience CD-R sounds good but not clear enough, u can hardley hear elvis, but now in soundboard is great! Ever since elvis stated in his December concert ''I Am Never Gonna Do Steamroller Again! I hate it. Which he kept his word on until March 28 1977, Bosom/You better run i already heard in soundboard and probaly those others arent new either but i will but this only for the unreleased concert & the ultimately last Steamroller Blues version

Amarillo '77: Pass; Stage Rehearsal: Pass; Pot Luck Sessions: Maybe. Depends on what else is released between now and the end of 2011.
circleG (profilecontact) wrote on May 23, 2011report abuse
looking forward to all of these, especially 'stage rehearsal' although I would have preferred complete and unedited rehearsals. I'm afraid the bootleggers do it better but I'll still buy it. Some great tracks on pot luck and as always I'm a fan of outtakes and as for '77. I have a soft sad nostalgic spot for that year...
You Dont Know Me (profilecontact) wrote on May 23, 2011report abuse
I think ALL these FTD releases HERE will be 'great!' hopefully the sound quality from the rehearsals wil be much better and as for the 1977 Amarillo show + bonus tracks from the March tour this is unheard(mostly) and will also be 'great' depending on the sound quality. At last something for me to get excited about!

I'd like to see an upgrade to In Concert too, but it's best to be careful for what you wish for. What made In Concert sound as good as it does for a 1977 show are the heavy overdubs. Without them, I think that we might end up with something as dismal as Spring Tours '77 or Unchained Melody. There's a lot of 77 material out there, and most of it only serves to put the spot light on Elvis at his worst. I can't say that I'm thrilled to see another 77 release hit the market.

I wonder if "Elvis In Concert" is regarded (by FTD) as one of the classic albums released during his lifetime (his last one in my opinion). It should be considered as one of his classics, because it was recorded in June '77 and released shortly afterwards (Oct.) Our man just decided to go to heaven before the release date... That all... The same could easily have happened to Moody Blue: with the release date postponed by a month or so, it would have been released just after his death. But I think it would be considered one of his classic albums though.

Elvis In Concert needs a release with upgraded sound badly. CD1 should contain the original release and CD2 should contain a complete multitrack concert from June 1977. Or should CD2 contain his last concert (even if it's an audience recording)? Anyway, FTD is the only channel to release Elvis In Concert!

Stop griping about Amarillo 77 and talk about Stage Rehearshal. There is a gem on there that has not been officially released.

If these releases are releases that you don't need Steve V,doesn't mean every Elvis doesn't need it, there a lot of fans who are waiting for this, and i am one of those fans.

Herman - Sorry. Spring Tours 77 and Unchained Melody is one too many for me.

Another '77 show ?!? That sounds like we allready have a lot of these '77 shows. We don't Steve V.

Another 77 show, more outtakes from a session we've had countless outtakes from and another LP 'collectors' item that no one really needs. There are much better ways for me to spend my money than on Elvis products these days.

I love the '77 shows so great releases, thanks Ernst ! I really don't care about the artwork, the music on the disc is the most important.

Looking forward to the unknown "Amarillo '77" with much anticipation. Let's hope Elvis' form is good (for 1977 standards that is...). What I find impressive though is that the soundboard tape machines kept rolling throughout the band introductions which make the listening experience more complete. I might jump straight to track 14 for Ronnie Tutt's drum solo/ Bo Didley theme, which I've never heard on SB. The only disappointment here is the aborted "Reconsider Baby".
Also looking forward to the well balanced and up front Aug. 10 "Stage Rehearsal". Officially we haven't had any new material from this session since the Silver Box set.

Really love the art work on "Stage Rehearsal." I've noticed the art work on the recent FTD CDs has been much improved.

That's fantastic! A before unknown show from 1977. I hope it will be released in 4-Track Sound as on "Spring Tours 77", if available. And the tracklisting (especially the bonus section) sounds great. And the other release is also very interesting to me to. There are some songs, which I never heard before. I am really looking forward to these releases! Thank you, Ernst!
