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'.

Devil In Disguise, for example, does not fade out but has a great new ending, including two guitar solos. 

Gold In The Mountains has been overdubbed with a more fuller drumbeat on some parts and has been extended. 

Like A Baby 'you do the intro' Elvis said during the session, but here, we have Elvis himself playing it, and on the end, the guitar has been included once more.

Dirty, Dirty Feeling sounds so much different since lots of parts from the session have been included, and it's Elvis who does the ending 'Gone...' instead of Ray Walker.

Stranger In The Crowd, no complete outtake of this song exists, here we get an extended 'rehearsal' version, which sounds wonderful

It Ain't No Big Thing, again our man does the intro, and a very different version is made.

I'll Never Know here outtakes are combined with the master overdubs.

On the first 'Nashville' most tracks were from the sixties. Here we get a good portion of seventies selections, and well as a fifties track, all recorded in Nashville.

Elvis Presley Video Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD

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.
