The latest release from the Audionics label is out now. This CD titled "Let Me Be The One – Behind Closed Doors" contains home demos recorded in April 1974, November 1973 and 1960. Completely new songs recorded by Elvis are hard to find and Audionics is proud to include a completely unreleased set recorded in April 1974 in Palm Springs, CA.
From the press release:
Elvis’ duets rendition with the group Voice of the song "Let Me Be The One" is somewhat spicy to say the least but nonetheless entertaining, all his energy was saved for a great finale that is almost worth the price of the CD by itself. This incredible rarity is followed with the complete November 1973 home demos recorded at Sam Thompson’s house in Memphis, and for the first time ever complete in such excellent quality.
Finally we move back to California thirteen years earlier with Elvis on piano in the privacy of his house on Monovale Drive in Beverly Hills. This time Elvis is surrounded by Nancy Sharp and Red West. Within this intimate setting you are treated with the complete unedited home demos recorded that day, featuring for the very first time a good portion in stereo * ( they have use two microphones ) and best ever sound quality.
This new Audionics production will be presented in a standard jewel case with a 32 page booklet, and accompanying photographs taken during these years or close to them.
You will be able to hear and enjoy Elvis in the relaxed atmosphere of these private parties in California and Memphis. Get a copy while you can !!!!
