Standing In The Rain - Ampex

Standing In The Rain - Ampex


Ampex is proud to present their latest release ''Standing In The Rain'' as recorded live at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, NY on June 24 1973 at 3 P.M
On this day, Elvis is performing his last show in a series of four sold-out concerts at this venue, much like he did just over a year earlier 32 miles away in Manhattan at Madison Square Garden. 
The audience was primed beyond measure as Elvis had not performed in the New York-tri state area since the previous year.
The setlists at these shows were similar to the recently aired ''Aloha From Hawaii'' TV Special, with several variations, most notably a classic rock 'n roll medley, How Great Thou Art, and I'm Leavin'. 
This show was previously released on the MxF title ''Uniondale Hysteria, Final Day'' from a much inferior and different tape. 
We at Ampex found a brand new source, the sound of this recording replicates exactly what the fans in the audience heard that night.
It was recorded on high quality BASF tape,and has tremendous dynamic range considering the limitations of amateur equipment in those days.

It captures the sound of Elvis's show that evening in clear and brilliant sound... and we advise you to play this loud and proud, and you will feel like you are right there in attendance. 
This release is mastered directly from the original first generation audience recorded cassette,which has been carefully preserved in its vintage hard plastic case for 40 years. The CD will also feature a 16 page booklet, including rare photos of Elvis in Uniondale, and liner notes! Ask your dealer for samples!

01. See See Rider
02. I Got A Woman / Amen
03. Love Me Tender

Past Masters - Volume 2 - ElvisOne

Past Masters - Volume 2 - ElvisOne


Past Masters - Volume 2 is a collection of 25 tracks from Elvis’ catalogue. The majority of these tracks were not available on his original albums. 
Past Masters consists of A- and B-sides from Elvis’ singles and Extended Play’s (EP’s), very hard to find Long Play (LP) album versions and some previously unreleased versions in great binaural sound. The main part of the single and Extended Play (EP) versions appeared in a different form or sound on his Long Play albums. 
Also included are the full contents of the original ‘TV Guide Presents Elvis Presley’ record (released in September 1956) and the original USA ‘The Truth About Me’ promotional cardboard disc (original US edit as released in November 1956). Again a great collection of rarities! Just like the first volume of "Past Masters".

Suppose - The Home Recordings Vol. 2 - FEFO

Suppose - The Home Recordings Vol. 2 - FEFO


A release from FEFO - FOR ELVIS FANS ONLY
SUPPOSE - THE HOME RECORDINGS - VOL.2: 
A companion album to ELVIS - THE HOME RECORDINGS (released by RCA/BMG in 1999). This second album contains 22 tracks; all home recordings. Most of them were recorded at various locations in Los Angeles and Germany. Some were recorded in Memphis and a few in other places. Of these 22 tracks, 12 are officially previously unreleased and 2 tracks are very hard to find. For example: the stereo version of '500 Miles'. The version of 'Suppose' on this album was only available on the "Celluloid Rock" boxset from 1998. A great new compilation album with more of the best Elvis' homerecordings, with new edits and were possible, improved sound! A great addition to the '99 RCA/BMG album, in the same style, but now with recordings from the 50's, 60's and 70's... Even if you have all the bootlegs you'll certainly enjoy this great new compilation, and if you don't have all the bootlegs, you'll also find enough new material to enjoy! This collection shares a privilege enjoyed by few: at home with Elvis!
