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!
