I have read a lot of criticism of this release, mainly due to the content. This misses the point as the songs that were issued on 1967 are not going to be any different! FTD makes these tracks and outtakes available for collectors, at a very reasonable price, and I always find myself reacting angrily to people who complain. In any case, apart from 'Yoga Is', I enjoy the energy of the 'Easy Come, Easy Go' songs and Elvis looks fabulous in the film, whether he enjoyed making it or not!

acording to the UK Elvis fan club, the next 2 FTDs are Pot Luck and Girls, Girls, Girls! hope theyre right!

It sounds like Elvis is singing backing vocals on "Leave my woman alone"! You can hear him talking at 18 seconds into the track! This whole soundtrack has got a good "revivalist" feel going on.
Rob Wanders (profilecontact) wrote on Jul 18, 2007report abuse
after listening to all new 3 FTD's after each other, i must say I'm really happy with them. Specially "i sing all kinds" is really great; highlights: Love me, love the life I lead, I've got confidence, An evening prayer (much better than the mastertake, less bombastic), It's only love, I'm leaving, It's still here, I will be true, I'll be home on xmas day. So, for me a real top 5 FTD. Also Raised on Rock is wonderful to have, although sometimes you hear that our man is having a not so happy period in his life. He sounds sometimes so dissatisfied. But I am satisfied.

As for outtakes from "King Creole" an acetate with takes 9 and 10 of "Don't Ask Me Why" went for $53 on eBay last month. Those have never been released (to my knowledge). I'm sure there are others lurking about.

Well as long as outtakes are lost, then there is indeed no need to release those soundtracks on ftd,since its a collectors label!

Oh my... listen to track 8 and 9 (It's Still Here and I Will Be True) of All Songs... fantastic, goosbumps! This is a fantastic album. A top 5 FTD for me. Long time since a cd stayed in my cd player for a longer time.

FTD probably decided to delay Pot Luck With Elvis as many of the songs and outtakes appear on Tickle me. As regards the questions on why Easy Come Easy Go has been released in prefernce to King Creole, Girls Girls Girls, Kissin Cousins or Roustabout, the answer is simple. At the moment outtakes for these are not readily available, and this has been mentioned/discussed many times.

Colonel7 - your comments are baffling and I wager that "I Sing All Kinds" will be a healthy seller compared to other FTDs. Remember the top seller is "Jungle Room Sessions" featuring recordings from an arguably weaker set of recording sessions than Nashville 1971. Other than the fact this new release is the ONLY official place to find an outtake of the great "Early Morning Rain", it also features a fantastic coverage of these sessions as a whole.

If patience is not your forte I prescribe a dose of the following CDs to see you through with regards to "Guitar Man", "Too Much Monkey Business", and "US Male":

"Tomorrow Is A Long Time" 1999 BMG/RCA CD: 07863 67740 2
"Long Lonely Highway" 2000 BMG/FTD CD: 74321 76749-2
"So High" 2003 BMG/FTD CD: 8287653368-2

"Pot Luck With Elvis", and "King Creole" will both see FTD upgrades in time, when the work on them has been completed. In the meantime we have these releases to enjoy:

"Pot Luck With Elvis" 1999 BMG/RCA CD: 07863 67739 2
"Essential Elvis vol. 6 - Such A Night" BMG/RCA CD: 07863 67840-2
"Long Lonely Highway" 2000 BMG/FTD CD: 74321 76749-2
"Studio B" 2003 BMG/RCA CD: 07863 67739 2
"King Creole" 1999 BMG/RCA CD: 07863 67739 2

I could go on but I sense due to some confusion regarding the purpose of the FTD label there is little point. Please direct your commercial criticisms towards Sony/BMG releases as these are the albums that hit the commercial market. In the meantime FTD can be applauded for their excellent commitment and on-going determination. This latest batch of FTD releases get the thumbs up:

"I Sing All Kinds", finally a comprehensive reflection of Nashville '71
"Raised On Rock", a fly on the wall overview of these often debated sessions.
"Easy Come, Easy Go", the debut of these stereo masters.

I'm listening to I Sing All Kinds right now and I must say I think it's pretty good. I love track 17, Put Your Hand In The Hand. Just listen to the drum intro (without any echo, a very "tight" sound), the piano and the bass. All the instruments are very up front i the mix - a very "complete" take. I've always loved this song :-) I will probably write more when I have listened to all the tracks...

Colonel7 - relax on the java man. I'm sure all the releases you mention will eventually come out in due time. They cant do it all at once. And once again I think you miss the point. The focus of FTD is not to be 'commercially attractive'. These CDs do not hit the chain stores. Their main purpose is for the hardcore Elvis fan. Some fans will buy them all, some (like me) will pick & choose. I prob will not buy any of these latest releases, but I cannot understand how you think soundtracks like Speedway & Kissin Cousins are better releases than Raised On Rock. He's Your Uncle Not Your Dad/Five Sleepy Heads/Barefoot Ballad? Cmon. At least the songs on Raised on Rock appealed to adults even If Elvis wasnt 100%. The only 'commercially attrractive' released CDs by the main label from now on will be compilations. You will have to rely on FTD for everything else. And if you remember, when the label released the 'Double Feature' soundtracks years ago, they were the worst selling CDs in the Elvis catalog.
Colonel7 (profilecontact) wrote on Jul 11, 2007report abuse
Easy come FTD should have been released together with Wild in Country and Flaming star outtakes I feel....or with LaL,LaLittle or ChangeOfHabit...would have been much more commercially attractive and better marketing. Or are they going to put them together with Trouble with Girls FTD digipack?? When can we buy complete Pot Luck session outtakes? and complete King Creole & GGGirls movie session outtakes ? This is one of the weaker FTD releases...why bring those out in 2007 ?? Bad marketing guys. unsensitive for elvis fans worldwide especially this year which is supposed to be a top year for us...
Colonel7 (profilecontact) wrote on Jul 11, 2007report abuse
Very bad taste and not at all commercial release not even for EP fans. Why not complete this session with outtakes of another one which is more commercial and more exciting like e.g. GMan/USMale/Monkey buzz? Will not sell one thousand copies worldwide, can assure you ! We need innovative materials first...especially this year 2007...with releases like PromLand or BurningLove or GMan session outtakes...which will sell well. Sonyu should not blame its salesforce for not selling well these FTDs. We also want to buy the TTWII-Country session outtakes (in two FTD volumes if need be) with great songs like Patch it up, I've lost y, Mary, Cindy, Washed hands, Mojo, etc etc all on those Now/ Fool/ LLetters/ GTimes albums.. plus long version of Don't think 2x. Also want to buy GGGrils, Speedway, KCousins, Roust movie outtakes plus the complete KCreole, GI Blues and BHawaii sessions....now that's creative marketing Mr Sony. Read that many fans agree with me judging from their comments hereunder. Sorry, but lousy stuff Easy Go, Raised on rock and I sing all kinds CDs.....non-commercial and lousy sellers you will see. Wish you well Ernst & Roger...but they're wrong.

This is truly Phenominal 'NEWS' for weeks i had been fearful that 'Raided on Rock' might dissapoint and that was why the track-listing was NOT released! Now all i could do today was order this superb FTD Immediately and praise up the really COMPLETE releases we have now had from these July and September 1973 sessions.Of cource with the song 'Just a Little Bit' with only take 2 the master and take 1 a false start we couldn't get any outakes of that and Ernst said in an interview YEARS ago about how he had no outakes of 'Raised on Rock' thus on this release we have PLENTY to get excited about! many outakes here we already had on 'made in memphis' + 'Essential Elvis Vol 5' but then they HAD to be included for the sake of completeness! I'm blown away by getting a weath of brand new and unheard outakes from songs like:Three Corn Patches,I miss you,Find out whats Happening,Girl of Mine,For Ol' Times sake and If you don't come back!!! that around 30 UNRELEASED full takes, part takes and False Starts!!! how on earth can ANYONE complain about this?? Ernst simply COULDN'T HAVE released a better package. As for getting the 'bonus' of the 4 intrumental tracks (of which only sweet angeline ever got a vocal from Elvis) this is just the attention to completeness and appreciation of Ernst and Rodgers work that makes me such an Elvis Fan! Why i only heard these instrumental tracks ONCE only quite a few years ago from a friend who had cleaned them up from Acetates....and he wouldn't let me hear them again!!! now nearly 5 years later i can ENJOY them as much as i like!! and don't think just because Elvis doesn't sing on them that they arn't of interest-NO FAR FROM IT! Colour my rainbow has nice vocals from the sweets and so does Good,bad but beautiful...and The Wonders you Perfom builds to a moving climax of 'religious' type ending. NO this to me is a truly inspiration and COMPLETE release...i hopw word of mouth spreads about this and it becomes one of the best selling FTD's of all time! As for Easy Come ,Easy Go... -even if they are recently 'found; stereo masters' i still cannot bring myself to even admit to listening to this crap!!!!

Colonel7 – “I Sing All Kinds” has been a long awaited release from FTD. “Raised On Rock” has also been eagerly anticipated by the collectors market at large, to refer to either releases as “one of the lowest points FTD has ever fallen” is to not appreciate what has come and what is to come. FTD have released studio CDs documenting most of Elvis’ session work – Nashville 1971 has been a gapping hole, unit now. “Raised On Rock” was always going to be released at some point down the line just like other Classic albums yet to be tackled.

As to your release suggestions: 36 songs for “On Stage”? Considering only 16 complete individual songs were recorded during this season I can’t see how you theorise 36 songs. The 1999 BMG upgrade release and the FTD “Polk Salad Annie” cover this season excellently – I implore you to check out these CDs. Besides, the original “February 1970, On Stage” album will be duly represented in the Classic Album series in good time. The same goes for “In Person at the International Hotel”, in the meantime there are 3 complete shows already released to be enjoyed in addition to material previously released on “Collectors Gold”

“That’s The Way It Is” has been extensively covered by BMG and FTD including the 3CD Special Edition containing a complete show plus season outtakes and rehearsal material. FTD have issued a book/CD project on the subject in addition to “One Night In Vegas” containing the August 10th Opening Show. A further August 1970 show has also been released on the “Live In Las Vegas” boxset.

The “On Tour” material is eagerly anticipated and will be covered in time however please be aware that Song/BMG do not own the material or hold the rights to the filmed footage, only the sound recordings RCA made at the time. Ernst has stated in the past he would ideally like to release a retrospective when a DVD of “On Tour” is made available.

People need to have patience. Rusty – why ask “where is Pot Luck” when release policy of FTD is quite clear. There are plenty releases still to come, “Pot Luck” will surely be one of them. It is implausible to expect everything to be released at once; there are not enough hours in the day to re-master and package all this material so quickly which is why there are quarterly releases. Besides, it has been known for quite a few weeks “Raised On Rock” was to be the next release, to complain about it now is futile. Besides, with 3 50s releases, 3 60s releases, and only 2 70s releases touched upon in the Classic Album series a new 70s album is very welcome.

This must be one of the lowest points FTD label has ever fallen as if there are no other great materials to be released. shame on you guys. especially this year! When can you release Guitar Man and Burning Love and Pot luck studio sessions?? And then there are much better and more interesting, innovative movie outtakes to be released, think: GGGirls, KCousins, Roust and complete KCreole, GIBlues & BHawaii. Too bad they don't listen to Ernst who is doing the best he possibly can, but doesn't deliver the good stuff that EP are looking for. And Roger should also do better: try to get us EonTour 3CDBox with DVD of those 12 Concerts of 1972. that would be a thrill for all of us. while also upgrading CDs like In Person (36 or 38 songs please), On stage (36 songs could also be featured) and TTWII or it was with only 36 "live" songs. Why not? Why wait until we are all 70 years of age? The youngsters won't buy those again and again... the wrong marketing approach Sony... listen to us. It is worthwhile if you want sales to further go up and improve... especially in 2007... or do you go for 2008/09?

The track listing for raised on rock is pretty good although i dont really like buying what i already have as far as already released outtakes go,easy come easy go is as good as it can be i guess, just a weak soundtrack in the first place,my main suggestion would be a better way of getting info out to fans,some website or magazine gets the info and passes it on to the fans and then the rumors start,what will be released,the new policy of not giving out track listing is silly to say the least,and never knowing when the ftd's have actually been released is not a good business practice,i look forward to rasied on rock,one of my favorite albums!

what I like especially about the track listing of "Raised On Rock" is the good mix of outtakes, rough diamonds and instrumental. Much better this way then putting 4 instrumental tracks as a bonus at the end as most of the times is done. I think it will increase listenpleasure a lot.

This are going to be 3 great releases. "Raised On Rock" has a great track listing.... very great. Even "Easy Come" looks great to me, songs we know from our youth. "All Kinds" is one I'm looking forward to. Nice summer this will be...
