Elvis By Request Of Japanese Fans was originally released as a 4 LP set in 1980 this set has always been a fan favorite. Not only this is one of the best compiled Elvis releases of all time, but also the cover art drew some attention. Many times referred to as the 'tear' cover this set can be found in many serious Elvis collections. It's a stunning beauty. And now this wonderful box set is available on cd. Presented in a clamshell box set including the original LP set on 3 CDs plus a fantastic bonus cd containing rare or hard to find recordings. The set contains the original tracks as released on the 1980 Japanese LP set. So for the first time you can find some original electronic stereo tracks on CD. A fantastic set full of fan favorites that will be in your player for a long long time.
Now available on vinyl: My, It's Been A Long Long Time, originally released in 1998 and featuring probably the best show of (already) the 5th tour of 1976. In total Elvis rocked the Greensboro Coliseum 5 times. Obviously most memorable is the April 14, 1972, performance which is considered to be one of his best performances.
Petticoat records is back with 'Elvis At Christmas' LP and CD! And with the holidays in sight we present you the ultimate Elvis Christmas vinyl album. A fantastic vinyl album (plus bonus cd) featuring 16 rare and hard to find alternate versions of some of the best Christmas songs ever recorded. From the late 1950s until the 1970s!
Sony Legacy will release a 'Black Friday Record Store Day' release Elvis: 'American Sound Sessions 1969' double LP Record Set. This release is limited to 4000 copies worldwide. 1969 was a pivotal year for Elvis Presley.
MTP is back with two (2) amazing new releases, 'Out In Hollywood' Vol. 3 and 'The Nashville Marathon' Vol. 2. We all remember the 'good old days' when FTD released their first releases like 'The Jungle Room Sessions', 'Fame and Fortune' and 'Out in Hollywood'. Those CDs were in our players for weeks, due to all the unreleased stuff, great sound quality and last but not least the fact there were a lot of complete outtakes never heard before. After a while, although the releases were still fantastic, we got more and more CDs with lots of outtakes from the same songs, great for collecting, but the listening pleasure was a bit less fun... The label continues their series with two releases which will be in your player for weeks, and are again 'Meant to be Played'.
Venus Productions is proud to present you, Mele Mai Ka Lani Mai, a 3-CD set with unreleased outtakes from the movie 'Blue Hawaii'. As with all Venus releases all tracks are uncut and the sound is top-notch!
CMT is proud to present a new Spliced Takes CD, Viva Las Vegas which includes 15 unreleased new spliced takes!
One of the highlights probably is the 'longer' version of 'If You Think...' it has been created using 8 splices and includes multiple sax solo's 'Do the Vega' has been giving an extra 'touch' by repeating the 'Shake like a son....' portion which makes it sound more up to date and modern.
'Singer Presents Elvis' was released in 2011 by the Venus label. Now we have a single CD only re-release. This set was first released in 2011 and sold out immediately, mainly because of the many completely unreleased tracks. Most of these tracks are still only available on this set and we’ve got a lot of request for this CD. So we decided to make a low budget version and give everyone the possibility to own these recording on the label that made them available. As with all Venus releases all tracks are uncut and the sound is top-notch!
The European Side Of Elvis / Words And Music 2 CD set is housed in a beautiful slipcase is a 6-panel digipack with 2 rare albums. This Limited Edition Combi Collectors Pack contains masters and rare alternate tracks. 'Words and Music' was only released on CD in Australia in the mid-'80s and is very hard to find these days. We present it here with rare bonus tracks and mixed with Elvis quotes just like the original release. 'The European Side Of Elvis' was never released on CD. All tracks on this album are rare alternate tracks!!
August 1974 is a remarkable period in Elvis' career. A new Vegas engagement was ahead of him and Elvis and his loyal musicians had plans for a new and refreshing show, which they were going to perform for a two week period. Probably to avoid getting bored from doing the same year in and year out, they went to rehearse some new songs to create the new setlist. Fortunately, the rehearsal from August 16 was recorded on a 2 track cassette deck and is presented here in its ultimate form. Originally released way back in 1995 it was time for an update.
'Elvis Rocks Again in 1975' is a 4 CD set and follows the recent 'Elvis Rocks in 75' release. The set contains both the May 4, 1975 afternoon and evening performances as recorded at Lake Charles as the May 6 and 7 1975 performances from Murfreesboro and is limited to 300 copies.
Victrola is proud to present an ultimate 3CD-set of Elvis' 'Clambake' sessions. It is called simply 'Elvis Sessions From Clambake' and all these recordings including the masters came from the same 1989 DAT source tapes just as our very successful 2018 'Avventura In Oriente' 3CD release. We have decided to give that album a worthy follow up! What makes this new release special? Most tracks have been released before, but never before in such pristine quality!!! For the first time also, we release the stereo versions of the home recordings of '500 Miles' and 'Blowing In The Wind'! All tracks have been digitally restored and mastered in a renowned sound studio.
We all remember the 'good old days' when FTD released their first releases like 'The Jungle Room Sessions', 'Fame and Fortune' and 'Out in Hollywood'. Those CDs were in our players for weeks, due to all the unreleased stuff, great sound quality and last but not least the fact there were a lot of complete outtakes never heard before. The second release from MTP records is out now and the 6363 Sunset Volume 2 Deluxe Digipack CD will be another fan favorite.
Next up in the well-received 'Ballads' CD series is 'Vegas Ballads 1969–1975'. After the great success of the previous releases 'Nashville Ballads', 'Memphis Ballads' & 'Hollywood Ballads' this is a compilation of some of his best ballads performed live in Vegas between 1969-1975. Housed in a beautiful deluxe 6-panel digipack.
The Classic Bootleg Collection Volume 2 is a sublime 6 cd box set with 6 classic Elvis Presley bootleg albums. Again there is chosen for some '50s, '60s and '70s instead of focusing on one time period. This way all will be served! There is a big chance your favorite Elvis bootleg album is presented in this boxset. These were the albums in the late 1970s and 1980s that fans were longing for, cause it presented much better (and rarer!) material than Elvis' own record company released in those days. This stunning box contains miniature albums of the original releases and includes all the original album tracks, digitally remastered and they now sound better than ever before! Still many of these tracks are unreleased by Elvis' official record company.
Elvis: 'My Kind Of Blues' (Petticoat LP 003) is a fantastic vinyl album with BONUS CD containing 15 blues oriented rare and hard to find songs from the late 1950s until the 1970s! Great stuff, housed in a STUNNING full-color sleeve suitable for framing! This high-quality vinyl is now available in GOLD or CLEAR vinyl.
Over the years there were many duets released with Elvis, during his life, but even more, after his death, many 'Stars' wanted to do a song with 'The King'. CMT is proud to present, 'Elvis: Duets And Harmonies' CD, this incredible release, which has original duets, rare 'harmony' versions and some newly made duets not released on any CD! Duets include: Lisa Marie Presley, Connie Francis, Ray Charles, Cliff Richard, Anita Wood, Dale Watson, Kitty White, Charlie Hodge, Michael Buble, Nancy Sinatra, Ann Margret, J.D. Sumner, Barbara Streisand, Dolly Parton, Helene Fischer, Jerry Reed, Celine Dion, Shaun Nielsen, The Gatlin Brothers and Glen Cambell!

Time for some action!
Elvis' love for singing harmony has its roots in his love for gospel choirs. It is absolutely common and even necessary to be able to sing harmony when you do gospel songs unless you are always on lead vocals. From the very early stages of his career the 'King' never really needed to do any harmony part.
A new 4 CD-set coming out in May is 'Elvis Rocks in 1975'.
The 'Straight Arrow' label is back with its first release of 2019, titled 'Strike Like Lightning!' (SA/SP 2019- 56-02). We are aware of the fact that we have released 1974-1977 Elvis concerts of late.
After last year's smash release 'Stax Power' the producers had to do, Spliced Takes | Ghetto Power 2 CD Set, this new release, made in the same editing style this will be THE must have 1969 release for its 50th anniversary! Including all tracks recorded and presented in a way as if it is one long session without pauses, this one kicks some serious A... New splices create some extremely rare portions and extended versions and make them all sound brand new! Also some Dubbed masters are spliced with Undubbed for a new listening experience ... but almost all the tracks on this smash release sound new and fresh, and although every Elvis fan probably has at least 10 releases of these sessions. This is the one we've been waiting for..... for 50 years!
After the great success of the 'Nashville Ballads' and 'Memphis Ballads' releases, the great follow-up is 'Hollywood Ballads'. The success story continues! Housed in a stunning 6-panel digipack, this CD contains 20 fantastic outtakes from 1960-1968, including some real gems, all recorded for his 1960's movies. Keep your 'Ballads' series complete!!
The Classic Elvis Presley Bootleg Collection Vol. 1 is a sublime 6 cd box set with 6 classic Elvis Presley bootleg albums. These were the albums in the late 1970s and 1980s that fans were longing for, cause it presented much better ( and rarer!) material than Elvis' own record company released in those days. This stunning box contains miniature albums of the original releases and includes all the original album tracks, digitally remastered. Still many of these tracks are unreleased by Elvis' official record company.
'Guaranteed To Blow Your Mind', originally released in the late '90s was the very first outing of the famous March 18, 1974 performance in Richmond Virginia. At the time it was probably the best sounding soundboard recording available. And it still is!
I Got Lucky : Promo 45 RPM EP Sampler is a Limited Edition 45 RPM (4 Track) Promo Sampler and available in Blue And Red Vinyl!! This EP Contains 4 Rare Tracks From The Box Set.
Madison is finally back! This time to announce their first ever vinyl release titled 'Vegas '69 | This Is The Story' just in time for the 50th anniversary of these special shows. Presented as a stunning double LP set, in three different colors (Clear, Gold, and Red), and naturally on black vinyl. You'll have the ultimate compilation of this very special time in history, Mixed as one long show, hear Elvis sing his heart out, with songs like My Babe, I Got A Woman, Reconsider Baby, Funny How Time Slips Away, This Is The Story and many more!

This release will be an exclusive limited edition of 200 copies of each color only!
CMT is proud to present 'Blue Hawaii – Spliced Takes Special' their latest addition to this great series. All 15 tracks are unreleased in this format! New splices and edits gives you a feeling you have a complete new album! 'Can’t Help Falling in Love' has been made just like the master with the 'reprise', 'Slicin’Sand' includes 3 different guitar solos and rocks the sand out of your speakers! 'Ito Eats' has a very different ending.
The Hampton Roads show has one saving grace: Elvis decided to respond to the audience request for 'Return To Sender', which was an impromptu performance, and a true live rarity. Elvis sings it reasonably well and it was the highlight of the concert. This CD is presented in 3-panel digipak. Due to the lack of quality photographs from the Hampton Roads concert, great collection of various high-quality concert shots from Summer of 1976 has been used. So now you have the chance to obtain the ultimate release of the famous 'Return to Sender' concert. This recording never sounded better. It is dynamic, detailed, and in crystal clear sound!
After the great success of the 'Nashville Ballads
' compilation, this is the superb follow-up, 'Memphis Ballads'. Housed in a stunning 6-panel digipack, this CD contains 20 fantastic outtakes from 1969-1976, all recorded in his hometown Memphis, Tennessee. A truly great collection!
'Diamond Anniversary' goes back to 1971. 'All Things Are Possible' was the fourth CD release and it is about time it became available on vinyl. The first four titles : 'Here I Go Again', 'Old Times They Are Not Forgotten', 'Let Me Take You Home' and 'Holding Back The Years' were a complete sell out and were well received by vinyl collectors. Now 'All Things Are Possible' is available on this deluxe double vinyl album. It mainly contains the January 27, 1971 12.00AM performance. These recordings are among very few known soundboard recordings from 1971. Now this remarkable show is available on this deluxe vinyl album and it's a beauty! And of course the show is included on CD too. The show is remastered and updated in the best way possible! This release is very limited and is available in red or blue vinyl presented in a gatefold sleeve. Get it while you can and add this awesome DAE product to your collection.
In 1980 Felton Jarvis
, Elvis' record producer for the last decade came to the remarkable idea to freshen up some of Elvis' recordings. The idea was to add total new backing tracks to Elvis' voice. This resulted in the 1981 record release of 'Guitar Man'. You either hated it or you loved it is probably the right thing to say about the album. Felton was convinced Elvis would have loved it. The title track 'Guitar Man' written and first performed by Jerry Reed
was one of the tracks considered for the album. Jerry Reed was part of the original recording by Elvis in 1967 and now Jerry Reed was back in the studio with Felton Jarvis to work on the new album. Besides the guitar work he also recorded a 'duet' version of the song.
Victrola label is proud to present 'Elvis: April 10 1972, Richmond' a 2 CD Set containing Elvis' powerhouse concert in Richmond. Welcome to another spectacular 'Elvis On Tour' release, brought to you by the Victrola label. Our recent 'Greensboro, April 14, '72' release was very well received, despite some reviewers failing to point out the fact that we presented a genuine, recently prepared, unreleased mix of the show as well as unreleased bits and pieces of the rehearsals on disc two. The April 10, 1972 Richmond, VA concert was released several times by various labels. Only two releases stands out: original 1995 Vicky label CD 'Carry Me Back To Old Virginia' - first ever release of this show in mono (incomplete) and 2008 Madison label CD 'Red Hot In Richmond' - first release in original 1972 narrow stereo (complete). The Richmond concert was never available in professionally remixed quality - until now! For the first time, these are actual multi-track master recordings that have been used as a source for this show.
'The Sound Of Your Cry' together with its American equivalent 'Greatest Hits Volume 1' always brings back some fine memories. The unique mixes on these two albums make these albums everlasting fan favorites. 'The Sound Of Your Cry' (The album) has never been available on CD until now. Added are the tracks that were featured on 'Greatest Hits Volume 1' that were not featured on 'The Sound Of Your Cry'. All versions are the correct versions as featured on the two albums and some are still unique to these albums only. For example the extended version of 'It's Only Love' and the unique edit of 'What'd I Say' are among the gems that make this album unique. Also worth mentioning are great mixes of 'Angel' & 'Steamroller Blues'. Probably the best compilation album to date.
When Bootleg Elvis appeared in 2012, it sold out almost immediately, and became an instant favorite of Presley collectors all over the world, most calling it the 'Bootleg Bible'. Since then, additional rare bootleg titles have been discovered, not to mention many unexpected variations of some classic albums.
So … it seemed to be time for a new and updated look at this world. Whereas Bootleg Elvis mainly relied on text to tell the story, this new edition titled 'From Cover to Vinyl | The Artistry of Elvis Bootlegs
' chooses to focus on photographs. Using the 2012 classic as a reference point, we decided to feature scans of every cover, label, piece of vinyl and insert for you. This will make it easy to identify each and every pressing and variation.
'Bumps Are Gone But He's Still King!' (E. P. Collector label, catalogue number EPC 2018-19). The Hartford, July 28th, 1976 show is previously unreleased in complete audience recorded form. Audionics label released parts of this show taken from soundboard source (CD 'Across The Country', 2005). Unfortunately, complete soundboard recording of this concert do not exist.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the VIK label a special very limited edition 45 RPM box set is released. 'From The Army Reels' deluxe box set contains 5 45RPM / EP releases with beautifully designed sleeves & a CD containing the tracks from the vinyl. Many tracks are presented here for the first time on vinyl. Especially for this release, VIK made an edit of 'cool water' as it was basically not suitable for release in its original form. This beautiful set also contains a 12-page booklet. The set is available in GREEN or PINK vinyl.
CMT stays close to their 'Spliced Take' concept on this new release, although this is an album which stands on its own. While editing this album they have made all songs 'blending in' so you will get the feeling as if you are in the actual session with no pauses. All tracks from the 'Stax Sessions' have been included in this 2 CD set.
One of the highlights is a breathtaking version of 'Sweet Angeline' which has a longer intro and an instrumental break featuring Kathy Westmoreland, Other must haves are longer intro's for 'Just A Little Bit' and 'I Got A Feeling in My Body' and a new ending for 'It's Midnight'. Rehearsals go straight into the songs, and there are some funny portions mixed in. If you liked the previous CMT releases you will LOVE this one, and we guarantee it will not leave your player before (and after) 2019!!
Elvis: 'Wonderful Winter Wonderland' is a spliced take special release and is another winner in the great series and needs no further introduction. One thing we do want to mention is the newly created 'harmony' version of 'The Wonderful World of Christmas', although there are no outtakes available the CMT team managed to make a very different sounding track, where even the vocal ending is far different then the master take! Also just listen to the newly overdubbed version of 'Merry Christmas Baby' which has been re-created from THREE different overdub versions. All the other tracks are spliced very well, with longer intros.
'King Of The Whole Wide World - The Kid Galahad Sessions' is a sublime 4 CD boxset with the most complete 'Kid Galahad' recording sessions ever presented, including many tracks unreleased by Elvis' official record company. This stunning box also includes the complete film versions and original mono masters as well as the stereo masters! The mono sessions are presented in the best audio quality till now. Far superior to recent previous releases. Included is a neat 12-page booklet! If you are into Elvis' movie years this is a must-have.
Never before have we seen an Elvis Presley concert from the 1950's with sound. Until Now! The DVD Contains recently discovered unreleased film of Elvis performing 6 songs, including Heartbreak Hotel and Don't Be Cruel, live in Tupelo Mississippi 1956. Included we see a live performance of the elusive Long Tall Sally seen here for the first time ever.
+ Plus Bonus DVD Audio.
This is an excellent release no fan should be without it.
The 'parade' footage is good to see as it puts you in the right context with color and b&w footage. The interviews of Elvis' Parents are well worth hearing too. The afternoon show footage is wonderful and electrifying : Here is Elvis in his prime rocking and rolling in front of 11.000 people. Highly recommended.
Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD Video with Sound.
