Elvis: 'Out In Hollywood' Vol. 3 and 'The Nashville Marathon' Vol. 2 CDs
October 19, 2019
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'.
The Nashville Marathon Volume 2
This time we get the 1971 sessions in the same treatment as the first volume, some hard to find tracks and outtakes are included as well as some nice surprises and edits such as the extended version of 'Lady Madonna' which rocks like never before.
Another highlight is the new 'Don't Think Twice It's All Right' edit of take 2 recorded on May 17th.

Out For Hollywood Volume 3
Hard to find outtakes and new edits, presented in a deluxe digipack edition.
Another collection of 22 great songs, most are hard to find or released on CDs where you get so many takes of the same song, you probably only have heard them once, or more likely... never. Also included are some cool UNRELEASED tracks like 'Poor Boy' which is an alternate master and 'Stay Away' which has the harmonica intro followed by the master take, the sound is much better than the actual movie version.

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.
