in all fairness re=packaging and re-releasing is not a new concept. it was booming in the vinyl years ( I'm a Bowie fan and believe me the guy was milked by RCA too!) and boomed even more when Cd's came out. My first Elvis Cd was the 'all time greatest hits' back in '87. some fans probably thought 'oh dear here we go again...' but to me it was like 'wow!', it had great sound (and still does) and made me a fan from then on. Comparing the original ON STAGE, the 1999 version and FTD's POLK SALAD ANNIE the 1999 issue just doesn't do the material justice. Just my opnion.

Are we gonna see now different packages in different continents ? Legacy stuff in Japan, Korea and the Newspaper Add-on Boxes like in Spain ? Why not one worldwide marketing strategy EPE or Sillerman ? You should know better, much better; we deserve it men ! We want to get the very best from Sony, BMG, Turner/WBros a.o. We shouln't have to wait so d*amn long for getting a EonT72 Box and DVD with those 200 extra hrs of footage never seen before !!! And then those missing FTD movie outtakes and Classic albums' outtakes. Many of us won't be able to hear it anymore if released for fans...in 2025. This one for Japan seems to head for disaster, like those fat elvis-likes that ruin our King's great Image. Is this Suicide Nippon Style by Sony ?

I went back and listened to the original LPs of IN PERSON and ON STAGE, and I'm sorry gang, whoever "re-mastered" or "re-mixed" these recordings screwed up. The LPs sounds much better from a musical standpoint. They always try and mix the orchestra and back-up singers way down in the mix, and turn up the bass, and this makes it sound muddy. They were mixed to the way Elvis and the engineers wanted them in 1970, so they shouldn't screw with them. The records just sound better. (even with small pops and clicks)

One of many Elvis LP's I had to buy new copies of! I actually loved this live album. Even more than In Person. Mostly because there were no "Elvis songs" on there. And the way he performed those songs featured on the 10 tracker offered a new view to Elvis the performer! It's still a favourite and even thought most of this content came in great quality on the Viva Las Vegas double live CD, i still want this baby! Everything extra on it is simply a bonus to me. I want the 10 tracker in it's original tapping with the best of modern sound technology used to present it!

if you think he is mediocre; then don't listen to him, some of us think he was never mediocre; complain all you want, he is still the first and the king!

If you actually open your ears and listen to other artists from particularly the mid 70's, when Elvis was putting out Today, Promised Land et al - you will see hear, sadly, how mediocre Elvis actually was in relation to his material, production and album compilation. I take no pleasure in saying that.

To Musicwizard : one of the best ( perhaps the best ) reactions on this topic ! 100% agreed! Luckily, there are some positive reactions from others too. Always El.

I am with Steve V as far as being ready to collect and listen to other artists. I have recently opened my mind and ears to others, and there is a lot of good music out there. I have bought 20 CD's this month alone. However, I will still buy this simply because the last Legacy edition was, in my opinion, such an improvement on the sound of the previous releases.

However, I am aware of the games BMG might be playing with us, milking the Elvis cash cow.
When I buy this will I be justified by the sound improvement? Unfortunately there is only one way to find out and that's to buy it. This of course is what BMG are counting on to make money for very little outlay.

it won't matter; they will gripe no matter what is released! that's fine because we can just enjoy the music that much more!

With all the negative comments about the 1999 version of On Stage, I thought for a minute that I had missed something. Could it be that bad? I popped it into my CD player and cranked it up. It sounds just fine. The booklet is pretty good too. Maybe I've been listening to too many soundboards? Who knows? Anyway, if Legacy manages better sound than the 1999 release I'll be shocked. I can't help but think that if the 1999 version of On Stage had been released by Madison or Audionics, it would've been heralded as great.
Steve V (profilecontact) wrote on Jan 26, 2010report abuse
I didnt mention todays artists did I? By new music I meant Ive discovered works by many artists of yesteryear whose albums I never bought before. I am happy I did. My musical scope (rock, pop, jazz) has broadened a lot more in the last 5 yrs. As for today's artists, there are some good talented ones like Norah Jones and James Hunter. They dont curse. Also I never heard Springsteen or James Taylor curse. They are still making new music. Sorry, I'd rather discover new songs than just keep buying the same Elvis albums over & over. I guess I'm not a fan to you then. But it makes sense to me.

You know what guys and this is intended to all you guys that do nothing but complain all the time, I believe that the last this that Legacy released was incredibly fantastic, sound packaging and layout, they really out did themselves. The guys at song/BMG really did elvis justice with that release and I welcome any and all releases from Legacy and FTD. What I really would like to see from FTD is a Christmas box that would include ALL the masters and ALL the outtakes and alternate versions, that would be fantastic and we are still waiting for the Sun Box, which from what I heard from a close source will be this year. So guys do me a favour, stop complaining and enjoy what we are getting and please FTD no more soundboards.
Steve V (profilecontact) wrote on Jan 26, 2010report abuse
Very sad. An Elvis fan would rather buy a 30 year old album this for the umpteenth time for a slight sound improvement (maybe) then broaden their outlook for new music to their ears. Who knows, you may actually find there is good music out there not made by Elvis. I know I certainly did. Hey so did Elvis who liked all types of music & artists. No wonder we are laughed at by the majority. The even sadder part is, they will buy it again in 5 years.
GoodRocknTonite (profilecontact) wrote on Jan 26, 2010report abuse
So this is where we are at now? Hoping that the sound is better or mixed different than the previous 5 releases of the same material? So this is why we buy them? Let's see, what did P.T. Barnum say?Ah, the Colonel would be proud.

Hi Cadillac! What do you know about what I wish? How do you figure out what´s right for the Japanese market. I only speak for myself, and if there is something I don´t want it´s more soundboard CD´s. On the contrary I´m so happy I don´t collect Elvis in that manner. I mean how many versions of "Mountain" and "Hurt" do you have to buy/own? And even worse audience recordings, and outtakes of film songs. No, if that´s being creative to sell bad versions of bad songs FTD is far too creative for my taste already. And no disrespect for "must have all" collectors on my part. Just don´t understand them.

'On Stage' is a very enjoyable album, possibly my favourite live album. Sadly I was disappointed with the 1999 version which was very badly put together, edited and mixed, a very bad experience. FTD's 'Polk Salad Annie' is 100 times better! As for the 1969 concert being included all can I can say is ...why?? And as I've stated before, I've noticed not all these '69 shows are released 'complete', something fishy going on I think folks.
EPCadillac (profilecontact) wrote on Jan 26, 2010report abuse
Maybe they like such a compilation in Japan but we really wish FTD brings us more soundboard
CDs of soundboard shows or concerts. For Europe, a re-make of the original IN PERSON album should be due, while including songs like HHotel, LmTender, Trouble, Sweet Inspirations, Red roses for a blue lady, Matter of time, Loving you (rare) renditions on stage. We want FTD to be more creative Ernst, Henrik, Joe & Roger !

Hello, I'm going to come out and say that 'Elvis In Concert' is just rotten. He rouses himself for a couple of the tunes but his voice mostly has a hollow, fatigued quality and many of the arrangements are abridged to accommodate Elvis's poor memory and exhaustion. Notwithstanding that, the CD issue is a disgrace, stretching the meaning of 'digitally remastered' to the limits of plausibility.
Herman (profilecontact) wrote on Jan 25, 2010report abuse
Well MW, who's joking now is you write something like this: "In Concert", the worst record Elvis ever made. So you like the Frankie & Johnny album more ? I guess you don't now what good Elvis music is, listen to Hurt, How great thou art, My way, Trying to get to you and more, more.. I loved to see a Legacy Edition or better a FTD release of In Concert, hope for a DVD release some day with the two complete shows on it. He had a great voice in 1977,

$13.99 in the US & £17.49 in the UK? Interesting exchange rate! ($13.99 is actually £8.62!) I know that's the price for the CD being an import from the US, so why not release it officially in the UK, as well as the US, at a much fairer price? Whilst on the subject, are we going to get all the new RCA budget re-releases in the UK? As 3 have come out already & 8 soundtracks are due out tomorrow, the 26th Jan, it does not look as if we are. So why not?
Lefty (profilecontact) wrote on Jan 25, 2010report abuse
MW, point well taken. However, I do like In Concert. I need not explain the merits of why because it's a matter of opinion. Given your stance on the Legacy Edition line, which Elvis albums would like to see re-released in the future?
Lex (profilecontact) wrote on Jan 25, 2010report abuse
MW, I bow for you :-)
MW (profilecontact) wrote on Jan 25, 2010report abuse
Lefty, you're joking, right? In the music industry, Legacy Editions are meant for records that are outstanding because of their impact on music history or at least because of their superior quality. The 69 Memphis Session and the 69/70 Vegas recordings fulfill these specifications, that's why they deservedly achieved their Legady Edition status. But surely not "In Concert", the worst record Elvis ever made, which is outstanding only for an absolute lack of quality and relevance.
Lefty (profilecontact) wrote on Jan 25, 2010report abuse
A general public re-release with some upgrades. Well, that's not a bad idea. I'd like to see more of this type of release instead of the expensive, yet done-on-the-cheap FTD's. Maybe a Legacy Edition of In Concert will be forthcoming? This marketing strategy may actually have some potential.
MW (profilecontact) wrote on Jan 25, 2010report abuse
I wonder if they used the original mixes of the "On Stage" album or the 1999 remixes. However, we collectors have already got these masters zillions of times. I hope they have at least corrected the wrong tape speed of "The Wonder Of You" which ran way too slow on the 1999 re-release of "On Stage". If not, this Legacy Edition is absolutely needless, even for beginners or the general public, particularly with regard to the fact that "The Wonder Of You" is the most popular song on this CD.
GEORGE (GK) (profilecontact) wrote on Jan 25, 2010report abuse
"The wonder of you", twice, on disc one? Could it be? Even though most of the fans have this CD, with the bonus tracks, already.. Its a nice edition to the Legacy series, and it puts this classic CD in the new release bins, and brings attention to this wonderful album.

Great compilation. congrats. And there is still hope for the July 31 1969 original show. According to the tapebox once posted on FECC. Why did it dissapear?
JerryNodak (profilecontact) wrote on Jan 24, 2010report abuse
I will buy this for the expected sound upgrade of the "On Stage" tracks as well the "rarities." The sound on the expanded version of "On Stage" issused several years ago was a disaster. The purpose of this release, as was the case with the expanded FEIM. is to make Elvis' music available to the general public again. Better late than never. This is NOT aimed at FAN(atics).

sound quality has improved with time1. why ask why? if you are an elvis fan it means more people may get the chance to hear the music and maybe become fans such as we are and grow to love what Elvis accomplished

What is the purpose of this release? We just had an expanded ON STAGE just a couple years ago.
lray (profilecontact) wrote on Jan 24, 2010report abuse
Looks like we are getting 4 of the 6 remaining live masters from 1969. Instead of the Love Me Tender and What'd I Say masters we will have 2 of the rarities from 1969, Reconsider Baby and Funny How Time Slips Away. Pretty cool. These are the 2 best of the rarities from the FTD version of Elvis In Person. This will be a very enjoyable listen. Very thankful that they did not stick This Is The Story, Inherit The Wind and Rubberneckin' on here. They are on the FTD where they belong. The six tracks after Can't Help Falling In Love will rock pretty hard. Good decisions made here and both discs will sound outstanding!!!!!

great start for a beginner Fan, if they want a taste of what the experience of an Elvis concert was like; this is an idea! now we know these were edited from a series of shows and thus not a complete show; but the energy and electricity in these tapes is undeniable! with the sound improvments it should almost be like a total new experience on the ears; i await this release
Jim Hoff (profilecontact) wrote on Jan 24, 2010report abuse
Creme de la creme of Elvis' live performances. Our man is in very good shape, the voice is terrific and these recordings show Elvis in his prime. Of course all Elvis fans have these shows on CD ...... but it's a nice and relevant release anyway!

Great release for the general public. Pity 'What'd I Say' was not included - I think this was one of Elvis' best live performances.
Cruiser621 (profilecontact) wrote on Jan 24, 2010report abuse
Not again! For the general public perhaps and even that's doubtful, as it doesn't have the original hits most general consumers are familiar with; this was good in it's day but no longer necessary or required for the true Elvis fan.
