3764 Elvis Presley BLVD - Vinyl Editions

3764 Elvis Presley BLVD - Vinyl Editions

Celebrating the 40th anniversary of Elvis' last recording sessions at the Jungle Room on 3764 Elvis Presley Blvd

The legendary Jungle Room sessions from 1976 have delivered some fine fan favorites like "Moody Blue" "Way Down" & "She Thinks I Still Care". 
Unfortunately these turned out to be Elvis' last recording sessions.
The untimely death of a music legend was news that shocked the world but delivered the pressing plants some overwork. The Demand for Elvis records was suddenly huge. 
Moody Blue was re-released on Blue Vinyl and several reprints followed later and reached up to today 2x platinum.

After the success of the earlier released 2 cd set "3764 ELVIS PRESLEY  BLVD"  the demand for a vinyl version was big.
Now to celebrate the 40th anniversary of these recording sessions from 1976 this beautiful vinyl box is released. 

The set contains 3 high quality vinyl lp's along with a 2 cd set & A FULL COLOUR LP SIZE BOOKLET!
The vinyl is available in two colors: RED & (moody) BLUE. Both sets are very limited to only 200 copies of each color. 

Also the two cd set is available again in a digi-sleeve.

Make The World Go Away- From Japan With Love Vol. 2 - E.P. Collector

Make The World Go Away- From Japan With Love Vol. 2 - E.P. Collector

Recorded live at the Hilton Hotel, Las Vegas, NV, August 8th 1973 Midnight show 
Expected soon from the E. P. Collector label is another fine release, our last one for 2016. 
This new CD is titled "Make The World Go Away“ (label E. P. Collector, catalogue number EPC 2016-09). 
Recorded live from the audience on the Las Vegas, NV, August 8th, 1973 M/S, the CD is subtitled "From Japan With Love Vol. 2“ because it was recorded by a member of a Japanese fan club.

The Las Vegas, August 8th, 1973 Midnight show is previously unreleased. This concert was never before available in good sound, until now! It was taken from a recently obtained first generation copy of an original audience recorded master cassette tape and digitally restored for your listening pleasure. 
Elvis opened his 9th Las Vegas season on August 6th, he performed a total of 59 shows, closing on September 3rd - and unlike in February ’73, there were no cancellations. Elvis refreshed his repertoire with several new additions, like “My Boy” or “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” and his concerts were longer. Elvis looked and sounded good and he gave an excellent performance on August 8th! In fact, this is a delightful concert and one that is warmly recommended. Elvis sings quite well, and his interplay with the audience is fun to listen to. He sounds in full control, like he was entertaining the crowd from his own living room. 
This CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipak filled with collection of images taken in August 1973. 
As with all our releases, this CD is a labour of love. We are planning several very interesting CDs in 2017, so stay tuned!

01.  Also Sprach Zarathustra (2001 Theme) - 02. C. C. Rider - 03. Medley: I Got a Woman / Amen - 04. Love Me - 05. Steamroller Blues - 06. You Gave Me a Mountain - 07. Trouble - 08.
