Some Small FTD Updates

Here are a few small updates on future Follow That Dream releases. Ernst Jorgensens "SUN-project" will probably be released at the end of this year. The album "Raised On Rock" is listed high on the "updated albums" list, but no release date has been planned yet. IF Elvis' last show from Indianapolis is to be released on the Follow That Dream label an opportunity could be October, but as Ernst put it "I doubt it". Other future projects for the FTD label are the updated albums of "Something For Everybody", "Pot Luck" and "Promised Land". After the release of the April 1st, 2005 soundboard from a March '75 show there won't be any soundboard releases for at least 6 months.

By the way is Pot Luck and Somethhing for Everybody going to be in the same movie 8" format ? I really hope so, I prefer this format big time. Pity you couldent make them all like the singles, replicas of the vinyl.

Im just waiting on ROUSTABOUT. A double album of Roustabout alt takes wow, well im allowed to dream arnt i!?

I think ELVIS IS BACK, ELVIS IN MEMHIS, SOMETHING FOR EVERYBODY, POT LUCK and TODAY will be great releases. Surely Ernst give us the Soundtrack Albums. I hope he will slow down a little bit and rethink the release strategy. What I want to say: Don´t give us too much at once! TCB.

Yeah, the concert from Indianapolis is great. Elvis' voice sounds better than ever... This particular rendition of 'Hurt' is one of the best I have ever heard. Elvis sounds like a powerhouse with style, charisma and with a vocal technique and strength which can be admired by a lot of classically trained singers. Even if this concert is not available as a soundboard I think it should be released - if, that is, it's better than the already available bootlegs.
I think George W. Bush is trying to become as popular as Elvis was and still is - but I don't think he'll ever succeed. You can't force people to love you. Elvis was and is naturally loved because of his positive contribution to the world.

FTD Is the best thing that has happened to us. How about an "Elvis In Concert" special edition, with the original+outtakes+Indianapolis and what you have from that last tour. Add a book to it and I'm sure it will sell. Thanks for your wonderful work, Ernst!

'Something For Everybody' and 'Pot Luck' are the two most under-rated albums in the Elvis catalogue I don't know why this is, those two are by far my all time favourites they rank with 'Elvis Is Back' and Elvis In Memphis' in my opinion Elvis is in fine voice on both these albums and I cannot wait for these, I hope they will be in the 7" format, very exited about this news.

indinapolis'77 must be released-simple as!,his last concert ever would never see the light of day if it wan't for the f.t.d. lable/if the fail to release it its disgusting.

CD King - BMG do not currently have many out-takes from the films you've mentioned hence the delay in issueing these recordings in the FTD 7" format. They are still searching so anything is possible. Up until a couple of years ago, the Viva Las Vegas tapes were missing, so anything is possible.

Continuing with the soundtracks: How about SPEEDWAY and Clambake?

If the77 tracks are clear Idont mind how I hear them.
Elvis music of the70's should be on ftd label great songs like fool all ways on my mind hurt moodyblue blue eyes crying in the rain and danny boy must have plenty of out takes and between song chat would love to here this and how about a box set of all Elvis Tours of 1977 it would be great . Then jungle rooms the complete un cut sessions in a box set it would sell by the boat load

This is great news but Ernst, please don't forget those remaining 7" Movie Soundtracks especially GIRLS!GIRLS!GIRLS!, ROUSTABOUT & KISSIN' COUSINS.

Come on guys! Please Make the Indianapolis concert in '77 a FTD release. Not only was that Elvis's last concert but also it was one of the best in years. They have to put it out before all those movie soundtracks. I really could care less if those albums never came out, just please put the 6/26/77 concert out!!!
Marco Aurelio (profilecontact) wrote on Jan 21, 2005report abuse
I agree with you guys. OK, its very good to have all these releases in FTD, but they haven't finished with all soundtracks. I'm reallly waiting for others like Lyle Ray has mentioned in her report. If Indianapolis is a soundboard, it would be great to have in FTD, otherwise I'd prefer a soundboard in November 72 (they have it!) or Jan / Feb 74.

Hi! I am concerned too, I love those movie albums alot.
Please make the Charro soundtrack soon!! , Ernst. :-)
I saw the movie the oher day, and there is so much fantastic themes in that movie. Hugo Montenegro did some job! So with what that can possible be dug up of Elvis stuff around this movie, there should be more than enough to make such an album. Think it over.

I'm sure that they will get around to the soundtracks. The problem is that for Loving You, King Creole, Roustabout, Girls Girls Girls, Speedway, Kissen Cousins and I believe most of Clambake, they don't have alternates, or very few. So mostly what we will get from those sets are sound upgrades with very few alternates. But hey, they will, I'm sure do something with those eventually. A year or two ago Ernst was hinting around that they might do 2 CD sets for Blue Hawaii and GI Blues even though those are still out as single CD's in the stores. I just bet we will see those soon. I do not think it is much of a stretch to say that we probably will see a double of Jailhouse Rock with a mix of mono and stereo. How about another take of Treat Me Nice?

Well, i'm glad to hear from Ernst about some FTD labels but it wasn't what I was hoping for I was getting excited for more soundtracks (preferably: Girls! Girls! Girls! , Roustabout, and Kissin Cousins), so I hope this project doesn't stop or slow down the production of the soundtracks. Does anybody know? Ernst do you know which of the following soundtracks you plan on coming out with? It's such an easy question, why can't I get an answer ? To such an easy question.

yes rusty im waiting on soundtracks as well but alas the fans are not impressed by this period. i feel it is elvis happiest time in his life, his voice superb. they are happy songs and upbeat though i understand they are a bit banal. but from 63 onwards this was my period of music and films.

I've seen a very bad looking audience shot video of Elvis' last concert. let me tell you, his performance was magnificent! To have a good quality release of the concert would be incredible! Maybe not JUST as an FTD release, but as a general release. I realize that to do the event justice, there would need to be a boxed set with a book, maybe outtakes from the last studio sessions?
Rusty (profilecontact) wrote on Jan 20, 2005report abuse
I am waiting for 'Girls,Girls,Girls' and 'Roustabout' to come out on FTD But I would like 'Elvis is Back' first. which I hope is due in March with the 'Today' album which is another favourite.
You Dont Know Me (profilecontact) wrote on Jan 20, 2005report abuse
Jungle Room sessions #2 is great idea but how many fans want to listen to a dozen outakes of 'She Still Thinks I Care?' i do but other FTD purchasers?
Ton Bruins (profilecontact) wrote on Jan 20, 2005report abuse
When the Indianapolis show from 26-6-1977 is a soundboard recording Ernst must release it tomorrow! But I think it's an audience recording, isn't it Ernst ?
Marko (profilecontact) wrote on Jan 20, 2005report abuse
I'm feeling a bit confused, because I was waiting for more movie soundtracks, and now it seems that they are all forgotten. I'm wondering, if they are going to release updated soundtracks anymore?
Riozzi (profilecontact) wrote on Jan 20, 2005report abuse
i agree with mark r. about the last concert and also about the entire tours of 1977. elvis's last year on this earth should be documented, for good or bad.some times he sang with a freedom and expression that had not been displayed for years. i.e.unchained melody, how great thou art. let us travel with elvis during this last year, the highs and the lows, but ultimately lets toast a most remarkable man who always showed his pain and his sorrow.
Jim Semple (profilecontact) wrote on Jan 20, 2005report abuse
So does Ernst have a soundboard for Elvis's last concert 26/6/77 ?? If he does, its not rocket science to work out, that this would be the biggest FTD release of all time, before and after.

Raised on rock sounds like a good reissue. Definitely "He Touched Me" would be awesome. But as someone has already mentioned, I think the top of the world FTD issue would be a vol2 of the Jungle Room Sessions, or Promised Land or Good Times Sessions. Two albums were produced from the JR Sessions, therefore there must be more material. I just think it's amazing to see the man at work, specially at that stage of his life. I still think that the Jungle Room Sessions is to date the very best CD that FTD has issued.

The Raised on Rock classic album release would be great and also the Separate Ways classic album. I would also love to see the last performance released. As far as a soundtrack I would love to see a release of Tickle Me. Keep up the great work Ernst. TCB

The He touched me album as a double cd with outtakes will be great. I still love this album since I´m an Elvis fan. It is one of the best album from the 70s period. I can´t wait for it! TCB.
Martin DJ (profilecontact) wrote on Jan 20, 2005report abuse
I think the He Touched Me album would make a fine special edition cd.

If his last concert is available it must be released.
It is a piece of history never mind raised on rock ect.
Irepeat if this concert is available it must be released as well as all of his 1977 tours inc ELVIS IN CONCERT without the fans talking on it just the concerts uncut.
