Holding Back The Years (2LP + CD) - DAE

Holding Back The Years (2LP + CD) - DAE



DIAMOND ANNIVERSARY goes back to 1976. HOLDING BACK THE YEARS was the third cd release and it is about time it became available on vinyl. The first three titles : HERE I GO AGAIN, OLD TIMES THEY ARE NOT FORGOTTEN & LET ME TAKE YOU HOME were a complete sell out and were well received by vinyl collectors. Now HOLDING BACK THE YEARS is available on this deluxe double vinyl album. It contains the March 21, 1976 performance. And it's a beauty! And of course the show is included on cd too. The show is remastered and updated in the best way possible!
This release is very limited and is available in red or blue vinyl presented in a gatefold sleeve.
Get it while you can and add this awesome DAE product to your collection.

The Sound Of Your Cry

The Sound Of Your Cry


THE SOUND OF YOUR CRY together with it’s American equivalent GREATEST HITS VOLUME 1 always bring back some fine memories. The unique mixes on these two albums make these albums everlasting fan favorites. “The sound of your cry” has never been available on cd until now. Added are the tracks that were featured on “greatest hits volume 1” that were not featured on “the sound of your cry”. All versions are the correct versions as featured on the two albums and some are still unique to these albums only. For example the extended version of “It’s Only Love” and the unique edit of “What’d I Say” are among the gems that make this album unique. Also worth mentioning are great mixes of “Angel” & “Steamroller Blues”. Probably the best compilation album till date.

All tracks are remastered and sound fantastic.

Bumps Are Gone But, He's Still King - E.P. Collector

Bumps Are Gone But, He's Still King - E.P. Collector


Our new CD is titled "BUMPS ARE GONE BUT HE’S STILL KING! (E. P. Collector label, catalogue number EPC 2018-19).
The Hartford, July 28th, 1976 show is previously unreleased in complete audience recorded form. Audionics label released parts of this show taken from soundboard source (CD "Across The Country," 2005). Unfortunately, complete soundboard recording of this concert do not exist. The E. P. Collector label had complete audience tape of very good sound quality in vaults for many, many years and finally decided to release it. July 28th, 1976 is longest and perhaps the best show from this particular tour. Among the concert highlights there are fantastic performances of ,,Jailhouse Rock“, „America“, „Polk Salad Annie“ and „Hurt“. There is one special moment too, when Elvis sing „Happy Birthday“, to Kitty Kahane, daughter of Elvis friend, comedian Jackie Kahane.

This show was restored with a great care with a focus on not changing the integrity of the original monaural recording. You may ask your supplier for samples. If you are fan of good audience recordings, we bet that you will like the sound!

This CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipak with concert review and collection of images taken during Hartford concert on July 28, 1976.

If you have enjoyed our previous 1976 releases like „The First Time Ever I Lay With You“ and „Looked Into The Wings”, then you are sure to enjoy our latest release, too.

We would like to thank you for your continuing support. We are planning some surprises for 2019, including totally new shows, so stay tuned!

01. Also Sprach Zarathustra (2001 Theme) - 02. C. C. Rider - 03. medley: I Got A Woman / Amen - 04. Love Me - 05. If You Love Me (Let Me Know) - 06. You Gave Me A Mountain - 07.

Stax Power - CMT

Stax Power - CMT


CMT stays close to their "Spliced Take" concept on this new release, although this is an album which stands on its own.
While editing this album they have made all songs "blending in" so you will get the feeling as if you are in the actual session with no pauses.
All tracks from the "Stax Sessions" have been included in this 2 cd set.

One of the highlights is a breathtaking version of "Sweet Angeline" which has a longer intro and an instrumental break featuring Kathy Westmoreland, 
Other must haves are longer intro's for "Just A Little Bit" and "I Got A Feeling in My Body" and a new ending for "It's Midnight" 
Rehearsals go straight into the songs, and there are some funny portions mixed in.
If you liked the previous CMT releases you will LOVE this one, and we guarantee it will not leave your player before (and after) 2019!!

Wonderful Winter Wonderland - STAR

Wonderful Winter Wonderland - STAR


This spliced take special is another winner in the great series and needs no further introduction.
One thing we do want to mention is the newly created "harmony" version of "The Wonderful World of Christmas", 
although there are no outtakes available the CMT team managed to make a very different sounding track, where
even the vocal ending is far different then the master take! Also just listen to the newly overdubbed version of 
"Merry Christmas Baby" which has been re-created from THREE different overdub versions.
All the other tracks are spliced very well, with longer intro's and great edits!

02. The First Noel - Spliced dubbed/overdubbed *
03. On A Snowy Christmas Night  - Spliced dubbed/overdubbed
