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.

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!

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.
Elvis Sings Mort Shuman And Doc Pomus CD . Based on the 1985 vinyl album, this stunning collection contains 19 rare and hard to outtakes from songs written by both Mort Shuman and Doc Pomus.

Elvis: 'You Asked Me Too' includes a fantastic vinyl album plus a BONUS CD album with 14 country oriented rare and hard to find songs from the late 1960's and 1970's! Great stuff, housed in a stunning full color sleeve and available in both GOLD and CLEAR vinyl.
Victrola label is proud to present 'Avventura In Oriente' an ultimate release of Elvis' 'Harum Scarum' movie soundtrack material. What makes this new release so special? Most of it has been released before, but never before in such pristine quality! The outtakes come from a direct copy of a DAT cassette that was made on November 1989 in New York City. It was a surprise to discover masters that we had not heard in the way before. On this DAT copy there were also other outtakes from other studio sessions. Most of these outtakes have been released before but never before have they been heard in stereo. The special feature of the Harum Scarum sessions is that the songs were recorded with two drummers that can also be heard simultaneously, this is clearly audible in the sessions. As this release deals with the year 1965, some other songs are included on this release as a bonus.
I'm Saved The year is 1968. After several years of making movies without personal appearances things are about to change. This new release is purely fictional and presents Elvis Presley's Comeback Special in a totally different way; Elvis is hosting his own TV Special and tells his side of the story. Elvis talks about his career, first record and Hollywood. His personal life, tragedies, future plans and God, giving you an intimate look at his life and career in a way only he can. Including rare footage and home movies, original clips from the movies, and some cool vintage commercials from 1968! (Yes, the Big Mac also has its 50th anniversary!) Presented in 'True' widescreen for the first time! Not stretching out Elvis body or face, but all shots individually repaired for the best result!

VIK known for their release 'Greetings From Germany' is proud to present 'The Complete Uncut Bad Nauheim Tapes' containing 3 hours of Elvis recordings from Bad Nauheim. This is Elvis like you never heard him before. With loads of unreleased material & notes from the files of Rex Mansfield. An awesome collection! This is exactly how it appeared on the tapes, remastered for your listening pleasure but UNCUT! So expect some microphone overload or volume changes throughout the tape. These tapes 'UNCUT' is how real collectors need to have it in their collection. This 3 CD set will be released in a deluxe
These days, it's almost a miracle when something new turns up, especially when it's from Elvis' finest years. Two hours' worth of homerecordings from 1959 sounds too good to be true, and yet here with Elvis: 'The Bad Nauheim Tapes' | Part 1 & Part 2 CDs it is.
These remarkable recordings were made while Elvis lived in Bad Nauheim, Germany. Listening to these recordings, it's clear that he is having a good time with his pals, but the keen listener will also note that he is mapping out his musical future. Gospel music was always his first love, so naturally that's well represented here. Most notable are several stabs at 'He Knows Just What I Need', and it's not unlikely that the idea to record it at some point was born here. Same with 'Are You Lonesome Tonight', a song that would be a million seller for him one year later.
The Elvis 'Spiced Takes' series continues with 'Elvis Summer Festival' containing some very rare tracks from the 'That's the Way It Is' era...
This time some amazing splices were made from some of the rehearsals for the actual movie, since they were for rehearsal purposes the actual listening pleasure is missing in some way, because of the many breaks and repeating parts... until now..... Next to the rehearsals, excellent studio splices are also included as well as a great live version of 'Just Pretend' with reprise!
We'd like to present to you Elvis Presley 'The Perfect (Take) 1' CD, a 2 CD collection containing Elvis' first takes, recorded throughout the 60's and 70's. We at Gladyson consider these first takes to be on par and sometimes even better than the master recordings. Elvis in the studio did some magnificent first takes, but as sessions tend to go, the songs keep evolving, and everything gets perfected, but some of the magic seems to disappear with each passing take. We have chosen the best first takes and collected them in this 40 track housed in a beautiful 6-panel double disc digipack, which we hope you enjoy. We have left some dialogue in where fitting, and are pleased with the results. Instead of listening to the masters, get out of your shell, put this disc into your player, and enjoy 'The Perfect 1'.
After a short break 'Venus Productions; continues their very successful series Unedited Masters Once again, we managed to present you unreleased-/unedited-/alternate tracks. All tracks are digitally transferred from the ORIGINAL studio tapes to guarantee you the best possible sound you'll ever gonna get. Highlights of this release are, without a doubt, the unreleased takes of LIFE. Get ready for some great surprises!

What did not appear on the album is at least as powerful as the album itself. Also included are the opening and closing night from the same season. This is Elvis at his best!
