FROM MEMPHIS TO NASHVILLE - Essential Fifties Splices volume two - DELUXE DIGIPACK
The series next volume of the fifties, this time songs from 1953 - 1958.
It starts of with some Sun recordings and most sound very different then released before
The Acetate medley has been compiled from the first 4 tracks Elvis recorded for private use, "Just listen to his voice ladies and gentlemen"
Blue Moon of Kentucky starts of with the slow version and then gets really going once the master kicks in
You're A Hearbreaker has been edited the intro is different and it really sounds as if we have an alternate take.
Just for fun "Trying To Get To You" has been sped up and sounds like an attempt Elvis could have done.
Tomorrow Night starts of with the original recording and the later 1965 overdubb blends in very nicely, at this moment we leave Memphis and arrive in Nashville
I Was the One has been spliced with all available takes and you can hear Elvis trying out different approaches to the lyrics.
Ain't That Loving You Baby was first released in 1985 but here we have the remastered version not released officially yet.
Fans of this series know what to expect and will be happy with the new release.
