We have most of the tracks on this box already.

So there are 8 unreleased live tracks from 1956?

One cd with the live tracks + studio outtakes.

That would've been a better idea.

I wonder why the Warkwick hotel interview is on disc 4 and not with disc 5 and the other interviews

for me, the CDs are less interesting than the book and reproductions

but, since I just got the complete masters, I'm tapped out for box sets for a while

nice to see some creative packaging for a change tho from the official label

I'm wondering if most of the spare "live" tracks are the Hayride.

If they are, then we already have them.

I don't think I've ever heard a live version of "Paralyzed"

I don't know if I want to shell out $100 for a few songs.

"A Golden Celebration" box really didn't sound all that great.

The packaging does seem more attractive than recent releases.

The last box set contained nothing new either. Disappointed.

they seem like the hayride songs, off the top of my head

I know that Ernest was negoitating for a Hayride concert that has been never released as part of the FTD SUN project, but it doesn't seem to be that

I am sure I have the May 18th 56 concert on a couple of boots already

wouldn't it be awesome if the Milton Berle colour appearance turned up?

or the Hayride TV pilot

or the Pied Piper Cleveland film.....

the Tupelo 57 concert that memphis recording services released was amazing

The Pied Piper Of Cleveland film would be awesome.

I've been waiting for that one for years. Heard that it does exist.

I have the Tupelo DVD and I was really quite pleased with it.

It was excellent. Just wondering what else might be out there.

This is what I have on CD of that final appearance 12-15-56.

"I Was The One"
"Love Me Tender"
"Hound Dog" (a wild version of Elvis which the audience goes wild)
"Elvis Has Left The Building"

It's on the CD, "Good Rockin' Tonight"

I can imagine the whole entire concert. It would be nice to have.

It would be even better if someone had filmed it! Cool, Nina.

I can't remember which Legendary Performer volume it was one, but one of them had a short backstage interview with Elvis

and he goes on stage while the reporter talks to Parker

you can hear Elvis singing Heartbreak Hotel and the crowd is just wild

it was the first concert recording I'd ever heard of the 50's and I played the hell out of track, the poor quality did nothing to diminish the excitement

I believe that was Red Robinson, a dj from Vancouver, Canada.

He was interviewed while Elvis was on stage.

You could faintly hear Elvis singing on stage in the background.

I think Col Parker made them turn the recorder off.

I believe Elvis started the show with "Heartbreak Hotel" then.

The concerts took place August 31st 1957.

I think the recording is on a cd called "The Elvis Tapes"

In 1965, Red recorded a phone conversation with Parker...

Red wanted to talk to Elvis, but the col had said that he left.

He just missed him. Red wanted Elvis to play in Canada again.

Tom Parker obviously had no intention of letting Red talk to Elvis.

*correction

The conversation was probably in 1962.

nope, I'm from Vancouver, it wasn't Red Robinson

it was on one of the first three of the Legendary Performer records

although, interestingly, in George Klein's recent Elvis book, he claims to be the first to have introduced both Elvis and the Beatles onstage

but he's wrong - Red Robinson did that Elvis in 57 in Vancouver and the Beatles in 64

there's a bootleg called The Elvis Tapes which includes Red's recordings and I had met him and asked him to sign the record - he refused because he'd had nothing to do with the release.

he did sign my copy of his book, Rockbound.

Red's a nice guy - on TV he looks like he has a toupee, but not in person.

the 200 Pink Cadillac bottleg, pressed on pink vinyl

has the 1962 phone interview Red did with Parker, who teased him and said that he just missed Elvis

Parker had an amazing memory, he said to Red

Vancouver? That's where they wrote "He came, he sang, took the money and ran"

which had been the headline of the concert review 5 years earlier

an interesting glimpse into Parker's mind capacity.

I may be mistaken, but I thought I heard that interview yrs after.

I have so many Elvis cd's, it's hard to keep track where it is.

Where I first heard it. I don't think it was Legendary Performer.

I seem to recall hearing it in recent years, but can't place it.

Strange that Red Robinson didn't have anything to do with the CD.

I believe the vinyl release was a little different.

I have "Cadillac Elvis" on CD, so I never knew the vinyl was pink.

Tom Parker sounded like he was fooling with Red Robinson.

I often wondered if he knew he was being taped?

The Elvis "Arlene" phone conversation was clear as a bell.

I thought Elvis sounded suspicious on that one...

Like he knew something was up.

That gem was on an old cd bootleg called, "Make The World Go Away"

he could very well have not told me the truth, it was a bootleg, after all

but he did seem genuinely annoyed by it - it had to have been someone he gave tape access to

yes, Red said he was calling during his radio program, so it was a live broadcase and I am sure Parker was torturing him

it has, as far as I recall, a real cat n mouse feel

the Arlene phone call is a wierd call and when I listened to it, I thought what a bizare nothing of a conversation, kinda like hearing most people on their cell phones now

that is one neat think about LP boots, often the vinyl is coloured or have pictures pressed on them

I have a set of four 45s all interviews with Elvis' picture in them - I've never played them

There is a great bootleg called, "When All Was Kool"

It was rare interviews, fan chatter, lost radio shows of 57.

And more...

The material would be neat in between outtakes, and 50's live cuts.

Elvis is so scattered to the winds, really.

All it would take is a little imagination to put tracks together.

Elvis CD's that tell a story with each period in Elvis's career.

I don't know why they continue releasing what they do.

They have a wealth of great material that the bootleggers put out.

But the bootleggers would need to put then together in order also.

Who needs another reissue or greatest hits collection?

1970's live stuff is already released by FTD or the better imports.

yup, but maybe that's what Sony is doing - they are maknig better packages than RCA or BMG ever did

they are treating Elvis like an artist

and hopefully, what Joan Deary started with the Legendary Performer series, they will pull together all the interesting scraps into coherent packages

part of the challenge is that back in the day, there was no consideration given to long term sales and archival value

part of why I want this tracks box is the 2 advertisements on the final disc

they could collect all the recorded blurbs Elvis did to intro DJ discs and fan club special pressings

You are happy with Sony? I don't see much of a difference, really.

The sound has improved, but they have very little imagination.

RCA did put out some interesting Elvis CD's in the 1990's though.

The boxed sets were well put together with many of studio outtakes.

"Elvis: Live In Las Vegas"
"Elvis: Today, Tomorrow & Forever"
"Elvis: Close Up"

I was really please with those releases, really.

I liked the Essential Elvis series of the 90's also.

I think RCA thought that many would be confused by the outtakes.

That they wouldn't understand that they were not the masters.

At this point, everyone already owns all the masters, originals.

A concept CD with many lesser known gems in order of the session.

Maybe they believe the bootleggers are already doing that.

It still doesn't explain the ugly, bland CD covers though.

Gold, White, Black, Red with only a print of Elvis on them?

You can't tell the CD's apart from the one released before it.

I'd like to see some color and photographs, studio outtakes, live.

A mixture of remixes, period interviews, promos, and others...

On a single or double disc. Show some imagination and care.

Arrange the songs in a different order, not just slopping them out.

Choosing songs not released by RCA in the past.
