After the success of 'The Alternate Moody blue' & 'The Alternate Today
' Hepcat records releases 'Behind Closed Doors' in it's newly launched special products series. Behind Closed Doors has always been a fan favorite, the beautiful lp box set issued by the AUDIFÖN label in 1979 was a groundbreaking release. Most material was unreleased and the quality was pretty good. Now for the first time this legendary LP boxset is re-released in this beautiful 10 inch sized boxset
. 2 CD's
, 10 INCH
and a 45 RPM record
Spliced Takes GI Blues CD, the first 2018 CMT release will blow you away, with lots of surprises, including rare studio material and new edits. The title track for example has been recreated out of five (!) takes and sounds exciting and fresh, 'Wooden Heart' has a new opening, and 'Frankfort Special' has some funny studio snippets at the end. 'Big Boots' was build up out of three versions (slow, medium and fast) and even 'Blue Suede Shoes' sound different than before, although there was only one take to work with.
Don't Think Twice It's All Right | Best Of 71 is a great new CD packed in a 6 panel digipack with some of Elvis' best 1971 recordings (minus the christmas and live recordings) is available now. A fantastic collection with lots of rare and hard to find outtakes. All unreleased in this form.
Don't think twice.... get it now!
The Rock N Roll Majesty import-label announced the release of the 4 CD longbow 'Big Boss Man In Vegas
', a limited edition of 350 numbered sets. Like their previous outings this box contains previously released material; two 1974 concerts (on four discs).
Fans know what to expect with the excellent 'Spiced Takes' CD series, some highlights are mentioned here, and the Spliced takes: 'Still in Memphis' CD is one big highlight!
Featuring all new edits, CMT truly has been able to produce eight (8) great 'new' albums, using many incomplete takes, to create beautiful new tracks
. The professional edits will blow you away and will make you believe these are unreleased takes. Some new 'alternate masters' were made and the result is amazing; (just listen to the sample below!) There are no fake overdubs, but some tracks have been overdubbed, using snippets from the actual 'recording sessions'. Elvis fans have been spoiled over the years, and they all know ... 'the end is near' as almost every complete take available has been released, so this is as close as you can get for a 'New' album, an album - which won't leave your player for some time! (promise!) Each set comes in a 'Deluxe Digipack' with beautiful artwork, and is strictly limited to 500 copies!
'Virginia Loves Elvis' DVD (Digitally Remastered) | Recorded live at Hampton Roads Coliseum. April 9, 1972. (8.30 pm). Hampton, VA.
This digitally remastered set has been re-edited from scratch, including new angles and rare outtakes, presented in deluxe digipack, and full WIDESCREEN. They have presented the show in 16:9 ratio, which is quite impressive. There's some quality loss as most on stage footage was shot in 4:3 format but on my 55" screen it still looks very good and is something you can watch time and again. Some highlights are the COMPLETE versions of 'An American Trilogy' and 'Love Me Tender' and probably the winner would be 'How Great Thou Art' presented in MULTI ANGLES with some very rare footage, it brings it more 'alive' since you see both Elvis and The Stamps Quartet harmonizing the song!
This 'Elvis On Tour' Deluxe | 9 CD | Hardcover Book boxset set contains 4 concerts, 'Hampton Roads', 'Virginia' (Richmond), 'Virginia' (Greensboro), and 'San Antonio' on 4 CDs, plus 4 CDs of rehearsals and 1 CD of interviews with Elvis. The concerts, with one exception ('Hampton Roads'), are Stereo. And the rehearsals, again, with one exception ('Buffalo'), are Stereo. The interviews are mono. It is true, 'Elvis On Tour' has been given a complete lack of attention by both Sony and Warner. It is indeed a shame that so few quality releases have emerged. But now thanks to Amiga with this deluxe package, this is no longer the case. Stunning Design and Production | So many photos I have not seen before - it is just a dream | A good 120 pages of photos and information | Great sound | Quality throughout.
Due for release from the Rock 'N' Roll Majesty import-label is the 4 CD longbox 'The 1972 Elvis Experience | Elvis: Live At The Las Vegas Hilton 1972 (4-CD Longbox)'. As with all Rock N Roll Majesty releases, this set contains copies of previously released concerts.
'If I Can Dream: Elvis Presley With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra' is a remarkable new album that features classic Elvis vocal performances with brand-new orchestral accompaniment. On October 21 a new album, 'The Wonder Of You: Elvis Presley With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra' will be released.
Due for release is the 4 LP import-set set 'On Stage - January & February 1970 Revisited'. The content is taken from the 2011 Backdraft release, 'Rebooked At The International - January/February 1970'.

This will include the premiere of the complete rehearsal recorded in Buffalo, NY on April 5, 1972, with three previously unreleased performances.
The 13-inch boxset also includes a huge 128-page hardcover book containing detailed essays of the entire April 1972 tour with RARE AND UNPUBLISHED photographs and related memorabilia. When considering the lack of attention paid to this concert documentary, it seems a shame that so few official releases have emerged. It is for this reason that AMIGA International presents this deluxe package to honor the excellent recordings made for the much neglected 'Elvis On Tour' film.
After the success of 'The Alternate Moody Blue' Hepcat records releases 'The Alternate Today', Elvis' last real studio sessions took place on March 10-13, 1975 and resulted in the Today album. Nearby 43 years later Hepcat records releases 'The Alternate Today'.

Housed in a stunning slipcase are two Australian albums, 'Rock 'N' On' Volume 1 and Volume 2. In the late 1980's these albums were released on CD, but the sound quality was not great, and they did not have the original artwork. These CD's are very hard to find now.
Now, for the very first time, both Volume 1 and Volume 2 are released in a6-panel digipack with the original artwork from the original vinyl releases! And.....each Volume contains lots of hard to find outtakes and alternate versions! A superb collection for every Elvis fan.
The best way to spend the dark and cold winter days is with this 'Intimate Elvis' CD release. Housed in a beautiful 6 panel digipack, this release contains 18 hard to find outtakes of some of Elvis' best and most intimate recordings.
The Audionics label is proud to come up with a new, comprehensive 10 CD project, dedicated to Elvis' legendary Las Vegas Summer '74 season. It is called 'The King Strikes Back!' and for the first time ever, all rehearsal and live soundboard recordings are presented in best possible sound quality and in one box!
For some of these recordings, we have used audio tapes (master cassettes) as a source, rather than existing CD releases. We have spent dozens of hours in studio, to restore and enhance them. As usual, every recording was treated individually and restored from scratch, using today's advanced technology to achieve the best possible sound quality for your optimal listening pleasure.
CMT is back with an incredible release, 'Love Letters From Elvis - Spliced Takes Special'. The CD including 14 'spliced' tracks from the 1970 recordings, including all tracks from the original album plus three bonus tracks. Fans of the series know what to expect, and this release is among their best yet! Some songs don't have complete outtakes and the team managed to present an album with full versions only! Rare snippets and rehearsals were used and it works like magic!
Elvis: Night & Day in Nashville is a new CD release in the 'Bootleg Series' and a sampler of material recorded by The King in Nashville from '56 to '66. A total of 22 tracks, including 20 alternate recordings and original mixes (15 previously unreleased by Elvis' record company).

Straight Arrow is pleased to bring you a new double CD dedicated to Elvis' August/ September '74 season. This recording was taken directly from a recently found new source, a 1st generation copy of an original audience-recorded mastertape, never before in circulation! This fascinating, previously unreleased concert was never before available in such excellent sound quality!
Coming out soon from Ragdoll is their new release 'Please, Stay In Your Seats' recorded live at the spectrum in Philadelphia, PA on may 28 1977. Taken straight from the 1st generation audience recorded master tape, this show features a fine show, with Elvis in good spirits, doing fine versions of 'Polk Salad Annie', 'My Way', 'Little Sister' among others, a very young Bruce Springsteen
was in the audience this night, and he noted 'I remember enjoying the show tremendously' while also acknowledging 'It was not a good night', we feel it's up to you to judge what you think of this show.
The Elvis: 'Past Masters - Volume 2' CD is a collection of 25 tracks from Elvis' catalogue. The majority of these tracks were not available on his original albums.
Past Masters consists of A- and B-sides from Elvis' singles and Extended Play's (EP's), very hard to find Long Play (LP) album versions and some previously unreleased versions in great binaural sound. The main part of the single and Extended Play (EP) versions appeared in a different form or sound on his Long Play albums. Also included are the full contents of the original 'TV Guide Presents Elvis Presley' record (released in September 1956) and the original USA 'The Truth About Me' promotional cardboard disc (original US edit as released in November 1956). Again a great collection of rarities! Just like the first volume of 'Past Masters'.

Ampex is proud to present their latest release 'Standing In The Rain' as recorded live at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, NY on June 24 1973 at 3 P.M : On this day, Elvis is performing his last show in a series of four sold-out concerts at this venue, much like he did just over a year earlier 32 miles away in Manhattan at Madison Square Garden.
The audience was primed beyond measure as Elvis had not performed in the New York-tri state area since the previous year. It was recorded on high quality BASF tape, and has tremendous dynamic range considering the limitations of amateur equipment
in those days.
Expected soon from the E. P. Collector label is another exciting new release titled (label E. P. Collector, catalogue number EPC 2017-14). Elvis Presley opened his 11th Las Vegas season on August 19th, and he performed a total of 27 shows, closing on September 2nd. Once again, Elvis revisited his live repertoire based on previous seasons and he included several tracks from the December '73 recording sessions, and he also added songs like 'Softly As I Leave You' and 'If You Love Me (Let Me Know)'. Elvis' new love, the beautiful Sheila Ryan
was present and Elvis sang the rarely performed 'Early Morning Rain' for her. He sings the complete song.
Expected soon from the E. P. Collector label is another exciting new release titled 'A Sensational Opening Night' (label E. P. Collector, catalogue number EPC 2017-13). Recorded live from the audience in Las Vegas, NV, August 4th, 1972, Opening show, this CD is subtitled ' From Japan With Love Vol. 4' because it was recorded by a member of a Japanese fan club.
Coming out soon from the Ragdoll label is an unreleased audience recorded show from Lake Tahoe titled 'Tahoe '73'. This show is the midnight show, May 9th, 1973. This one is a good solid show, here below the tracklisting:
I must admit to finding that the 1969 'Fantasy' concert is a remarkable work that should have broad appeal - a big surprise. My initial skepticism was quickly overcome. This concert DVD should appeal to any Elvis fan that likes Elvis music to start with. With full quality normal audio, from CD, anyone can play this via their DVD player preferably then with the audio output via a stereo system. [And this is no diversion from what the format is] This DVD is well worth consideration for inclusion in your Elvis library for several reasons.

Another volume in the 'Spliced Takes' series has been announced this time we have 'Spliced Takes Nashville Revisited'. Another 'must have' release in this great series, this time even more edits/splices were done to make an exceptional album, where tracks sound so much different than what is out there, no fake overdubs, but some tracks have been overdubbed, using snippets from the actual 'recording sessions'.
Many fans were surprised by last years 'If I Can Dream
' DVD release, already considered to be one of the best Elvis releases ever, mainly because the new inventive approach they did on lots of the tracks, making them more 'alive' than ever. So there was an overload of requests to do this follow-up, and now it is ready to blow you away! This amazing set includes 16 tracks, edited to perfection. Presented in glorious 'Black and White' to obtain the same 'feel' as the first edition. Again some 'split screen' clips are used for a more 'story-telling' experience. Again, highlights are hard to pick, since all tracks are very fitting and stand on their own.
Drums Of The Islands: Ultimate Paradise Hawaiian Style Recording Sessions is a sublime 3 CD boxset with the most complete PARADISE HAWAIIAN STYLE recording sessions, including many tracks unreleased by Elvis' official record company. This stunning box also includes the complete film versions and original mono album! Plus a newly discovered demo recording of a song rejected by Elvis and the Colonel and written by Dolores Fuller. Unfortunately never recorded by the man himself. Including a great full-color booklet!
Elvis: 'Country Memories', this great country CD, housed in 6 panel digipack, is based on the 1978 RCA vinyl album. It had some strange selections for a country album (like How Great Thou Art
and Baby Let's Play House
) but it sold like hot cakes, almost a year after Elvis' passing. This CD contains rare alternate and live versions of all 20 original tracks.
