April 14 1972 Elvis Greensboro - Victrola (Luxe CD album and 2 LP set)

April 14 1972 Elvis Greensboro - Victrola (Luxe CD album and 2 LP set)


From the original 16 and 8 track master tapes.

Victrola label is proud to present Elvis’ powerhouse concert in Greensboro Coliseum on April 14th 1972.
So what makes this new release so special? Yes, it has been released before, most recently on the Amiga label boxed set ''Elvis On Tour - Deluxe Edition''. But this release blows that set right out of the water! You will not believe the sound, which for the first time comes from the actual RCA tapes. Yes, you read that correctly. For the first time, these are actual multitrack master recordings, and not the nafta tapes that have been used this far as a source for this show. On the box set, it was even presented in mono (sloppy, that) and Madison released it earlier in narrow stereo on "Greensboro Revolution". The recording that we obtained was mixed down from the original 8- and 16-track masters fairly recently, but then, oddly enough, stored back in the vaults. We know you will be thrilled when you hear this recording, which has the signature of the best Elvis live mixes released officially thus far. The wide, dynamic stereo sound is just friggin' unbelievable and puts you right in that Greensboro audience. That may sound like hype, but just wait for the samples! Elvis at the peak of his powers, April 1972, driving the audience into a frenzy... And you are right there! Do not miss this sonic delight, which may well be your favorite Elvis live album in the years to come. That's how good this is. We are clearly thrilled to be able to release this for you, from the actual mastertapes, in a fresh, professionally mixed stunning stereo sound. As a bonus, we've added a bonus disc featuring sacred performances and additional live songs in glorious stereo, as well as the unedited ''Funny How Time Slips Away'' from the April 5th 1972 rehearsal (badly butchered up on the aforementioned box-set). These days, there aren't a lot of surprises left in the Elvis world (wasn't that "Searcher" film a real doozy?), but this is definitely one of them. Grab it while you can! We do understand some people will be sceptical about this project, but for once, this is what it is! To assure these people, we will be posting samples soon, so that they can compare & make graphics to their hearts' content. This is the real deal, folks... And one project that we're damn proud of. A killer release that deserves to be in your collection.

''Elvis April 14, 1972 Greensboro'' release is presented in a deluxe double digipak accompanied with a 16-page booklet.

We are proud to announce too, that ''Elvis April 14, 1972 Greensboro'' will be released later this year on 180grams vinyl in a beautiful gatefold sleeve, and with a large booklet filled with many rare pix.

Recording Type: Alternate Takes / Live
Sound: Very Good

Don't Mess Around With Me.....I'm Evil - CMT / STAR

Don't Mess Around With Me.....I'm Evil - CMT / STAR


This year marks the 50th anniversary of Elvis legendary "Comeback Special" .
Since the performances can not be beaten, the best thing for us to do would be to present them in the same way as they were recorded... but since that has been done over and over (and over and over) CMT is proud to present this STAR production , which is the best release containing  the 1968 recordings.....in 50 years!!

Much time and effort went into this release, some live tracks have been "spliced" from different shows, some studio tracks have been re-created and sound breathtaking!
The live tracks are blended very cool, so you get the feeling you are listening to a complete show.

Probably THE highlight is the "complete" version of Trouble/Guitar Man, cool edits make this work very well and makes the track even more "Evil" 
Some tracks have been shortened to make it a different listning experience, "That's All Right" for example is presented just like the original 1954 version, with no repeating versus and chorus.
"Let Yourself Go" has been spliced with the instrumental version and sounds very different. The "Gospel" segment has been re-created from scratch containing clever splices to make it sound just like the original version, only different ..."Blue Suede Shoes" (Stand up) has been re-edited and kicks some serious a.....
Throw in some more spliced takes , a rare rehearsal version of Blue Moon of Kentucky (spliced) and some cool live edits, turn up to volume and enjoy this excellent release

Presented in a six panel digipack, limited to 500 copies, this one will be gone soon!

3764 - The Final Recordings - CMT / STAR


Includes all tracks from both "Elvis Presley Boulevard" and "Moody Blue" 

He'll Have To Go has been remade into a very different sounding track, it starts of with Elvis singing "He'll Have to Ho" James throws in a lick, and then our man bursts into "Put your sweet lips...." 
"Love Coming Down" has been extended but there are no repeatable parts. 
"Danny Boy" has been spliced with the live version, and America starts and ends with short studio parts, filled with a live version, also recorded in Memphis!

Both the shows are previously unreleased taken directly from a first generation tape.
The SR attitude is to present Elvis at the peak of his possibility and without the doubt in the Elvis’ first Tour in the seventies present Elvis at the top of his possibilities, delivering maybe shorter shows respect the previous summer seasons, but still solid.

We are happy and proud of the result we hope you can enjoy too, in spite of the limitation of the audience recording, we are talking of a big Arena shows no of the intimate Las Vegas showroom. The shows are fantastic and the track listing is solid, Elvis is delivering us a sort of greatest hits. Starting from his latest single I’ve Lost You then with the more successful The Wonder Of You, passing to the two best singles of 1969, In The Ghetto and Suspicious Minds without forgetting the glorious fifties with Heartbreak Hotel and Hound Dog…. All the songs are very well performed.

This new SR special Product will be housed in a deluxe LONG DIGIPACK, containing a 6 pages of foldout booklet with focus and details on the tour including a collection of live photographs newspapers clips and memorabilia plus a high quality glossy 135 gram paper poster of 50x26 cm size and a high glossy paper bonus art card of 25x13 cm of size..

Old Times They Are Not Forgotten

Old Times They Are Not Forgotten


AUGUST 30 1976 , TUSCALOOSA, ALABAMA

23 years after the first DIAMOND ANNIVERSARY EDITIONS release "old times they are not forgotten" the DAE team has joined together for some very special vinyl releases. 
The first title : HERE I GO AGAIN was a complete sell out and was well recieved by vinyl freaks. 
To make things not too complicated we have now chosen to release the very first title ever released on DAE “Old Times They Are Not Forgotten”. Obviously It contains the August 30 1976 show. And it's a beauty!  
We believe this new updated double album is the best outing of this show till now! And of course the show is included on cd too. 
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. (Double Vinyl Album + CD)

The Elvis Presley Camden Collection Volume 1 + 2

The Elvis Presley Camden Collection Volume 1 + 2



With these stunning new box sets we are celebrating the unique Camden compilation albums, released in the UK between 1975 and 1986.

Although a product of Pickwick International , licensed from RCA Records, these albums are lovingly referred to as Camdens , simply because of the catalogue numbers and the big capital letters "CAMDEN" on the record and cassette labels.

Despite often being dismissed by long terms fans when they were originally released, these albums were the first point of call for younger people getting into Elvis' music. 
The budget prices, added to the eye-catching covers meant these were albums that found their way into many a home that had never owned an Elvis record.

So, for many, there is a fondness for these releases.

for the very first time on CD !
