ELVIS 22 - Essential Fifties Splices volume one .
The series continues in the fifties and focusses on 1957.
Elvis recorded lots of different songs in very different styles
This release really shows how Elvis worked and was involved in the producing side of the tracks.
Amazing new splices are created for your listening pleasure
Highlights include a totaly NEW version of "Baby I Don't Care" which has an unreleased instrumental track mixed with alternate takes of the song, the result is STUNNING!
Also on this release are some clevery made splices of different versions of songs. "Treat Me Nice" combines the first and second movie version along with portions of the master.
"Young and Beautiful" gets the same treatment and it is very cool to hear Elvis start of solo and later the band joins in.
"One Night" combines the "sin" version with the master and even "Teddy Bear" and "All Shook Up" are mixed in a way as if they are alternate takes.
We could go on, but best thing to do is judge for yourself!
