Hop, Two, Three, Four.... a new release out soon!
Another winner in the great 'Spliced take' series is finished now!
There have been lots and lots of 'G.I. Blues' releases, but this one sounds completely different, with many tracks NEVER heard before!
A lot of work has been put into this release and it was worth it, presented in high quality card sleeve and disc (both factory pressed)
Including 12 NEW 'spliced' tracks from the 1960 recordings
This 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.

Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD + 16 page booklet.
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.
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.
