FTD News Confirmed

As promised we asked Ernst Jorgensen if the latest Follow That Dream news was true, and he confirmed it. EPE also updated their site: Following is preliminary information about CD and book releases from Follow That Dream Records coming in November 2004 and January 2005: Classic Albums Series FTD continues its Classic Albums series releasing Elvis movie soundtrack albums and others no longer in the active catalog for the regular mainstream RCA Records label. These releases, which surpass the original versions in content and packaging, come in special 7” digipacks with 12-page booklets, the master recordings from the original soundtrack albums plus released and previously released alternate takes. The next releases in this series coming in mid-to-late November are the soundtracks from the films Follow That Dream and Kid Galahad. Regular FTD Series Release FTD’s next regular series quarterly release, set for January 1, 2005 is The On Tour Rehearsals. It comes in the regular FTD digipack. It will feature recordings done at RCA’s studios in Hollywood in March 1972, which were conducted in association with that year’s MGM concert film Elvis on Tour. The CD covers Elvis rehearsals for his upcoming tour, combining classic Elvis live repertoire with some of his new studio material of that time. Special FTD Book/CD Combo Also set for release on January 1, 2005, is FTD’s next book/CD combination. The book is Rocking Across Texas, by Stanley Oberst. New stories, updated old stories and some especially rare photographs are featured. Accompanying the book will be two Elvis concert “soundboard” recordings (informally recorded from the concert sound system): the June 19, 1974 show in Amarillo, Texas and the July 3, 1976 show in Fort Worth, Texas. There’s also a short, previously unreleased 1960 interview recording with Elvis and his manager Colonel Tom Parker.

FANTASTIC news. We are proud to get all these Cd`s but there is one thing to say about the realese tactic: In FIVE years FTD realese 39 CD`s!! In the beginning they planned to realese 3 CD`s per year. That would be 15 FTD CD`s. That is not only my opinion. I talked to some folks of mine and they say the same. I think ERNST should think about it. But: WE LOVE ELVIS and WE LOVE HIS MUSIC!!

Nothing wrong with those releases. I like soundboards and of course the rehearsals from On Tour are welcome as well, although I have many of it allready on bootlegs.

Thanks EMJ, that´s fantastic news. I fully support your projects. Elvis´ fans are eternally grateful for your WONDERFUL work with the catalogue ever since your very first contribution on the album ESSENTIAL ELVIS back in 1986. No doubt I´d give you all my savings just to visit the tape-vaults. An all time high that I´ll never experience, but I can dream can´t I. Bring on the Vegas ´69 shows on future-FTD´s, I never tire of the real Tiger Man in action.
