Silver Screen Treasures 1962-1965

Silver Screen Treasures 1962-1965


This marvelous 5 cd set is something special.
With 5 individual jewelcases, packed in lp sized box including oversized booklet this set will bring you back to the old days of cd/vinyl packaging. Something deluxe!

This release features mostly alternate versions from all of Elvis movie sessions during 1962-1965. A fantastic release with a lot of surprises, in a fantastic sound and running order.

Last but not least is disc 5, featuring (mostly) rejected acetates of songs written for Elvis movies but (mostly) were never used.

A very limited edition so get it while you can.

DISC 5
THE DEMO ACETATES
WHEN A NEW ELVIS MOVIE WAS CREATED, COLONEL PARKER USED TO ASK 
SEVERAL SONGWRITERS TO WRITE SONGS FOR THE MOVIE. 
MOSTLY THE COLONEL GAVE THEM A TITLE OR A DESCRIPTION OF THE SCENE AND THE SONGWRTERS UNDERSTOOD WHAT KIND OF A SONG THE COLONEL 
NEEDED.

THIS SO CALLED ‘DEMOS’ WERE THEN RECORDED (AT EXPENSES OF THE SONGWRITERS) ON AN ACETATE DISC AND SENDED TO THE COLONEL FOR 
APPROVAL. OBVIOUSLY THERE WAS CONCURRENCE BETWEEN THE DIFFERENT SONGWRITERS, SOME OF THE SONGS WERE REJECTED, SOME WERE ACTUALLY RECORDED BY ELVIS.

THE ACTUAL DEMOS ARE UNIQUE, MOSTLY THERE WERE ONLY ONE OR TWO 
ACETATES MADE AND DUE TO THE MATERIAL (WAX ON A METAL PLATE) THEY WERE VERY FRAGILE AND COULD ONLY BE PLAYED A FEW TIMES.

THIS CD CONTAINS NEWLY DISCOVERED DEMO RECORDINGS, ALL OF THESE 
RECORDINGS WERE RECORDED & WRITTEN FOR THE ELVIS MOVIES.

SOME WERE NOT USED FOR OBVIOUS REASONS, SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY WERE NOT GOOD ENOUGH, AND SOME U CAN ACTUALLY IMAGINE ELVIS SINGING THEM. 
FUN IN ACAPULCO IS ALMOST A COPY OF THE DEMO, EXCEPT FOR SOME 
LYRICS THAT WERE CHANGED DURING THE RECORDING.

MOST OF THESE ACETATES COME FROM THE DOLORES FULLER COLLECTION AND WERE WRITTEN BY HER AND COMPOSE BY BEN WEISSMAN, EXCEPT FOR FUN IN ACAPULCO (BEN WEISMAN/SID WAYNE), NIGHT LIFE (GIANT/BAUME/KAYE), I NEED SOMEBODY TO LEAN ON (POMUS/SHUMAN)& LOVE ON THE ROCKS (TEPPER/BENNETT)

SIT BACK AND ENJOY! SOME OF THESE SONGS MIGHT TURN OUT TO BE 
COMPLETELY DIFFERENT THEN YOU EXPECT.

FUN IN ACAPULCO 
01 FUN IN THE SUN 
02 FUN IN ACAPULCO 
03 BOTTOMS UP 
04 MAKE MY MARGUERITA

VIVA LAS VEGAS

Elvis - Hilton Showroom vol. 5 - AudiRec

Elvis - Hilton Showroom Vol. 5 - AudiRec


AudiRec proudly presents: ELVIS – HILTON SHOWROOM VOLUME 5 – a brandnew CD which will be released shortly. It includes an audience recording of the complete and so far unreleased performance from March 27, 1975 (Dinner Show) at the Las Vegas Hilton Hotel. Expect another dynamic Elvis performance from a time period when Elvis was willing to “deliver”!

Here we go with probably the last known recording of a March 75 Elvis Vegas-Show in pretty good, listenable sound. From the reports we have on hand (mainly from our personal archives of original “Elvis News Service Weekly” magazines) it shows that Elvis did just great since the engagement started on March 18. Forrest Duke from the “Las Vegas review Journal” commented “Hilton´s Elvis stronger than ever” and pointed out some new titles in Elvis´ setlist. Even Glen D. Hardin´s Aunt Ann Cummings attended the shows around March 27 and commented positively “Elvis his old self again”. Well, since you are soon able to own the complete performance on CD just judge yourself! Fans of our series know what to expect, not only from listening but also from reading in the usual high quality booklet that is included with first-hand information from what was going on at the Hilton Hotel in Las Vegas in March of 1975.

Please be aware that this new release is limited to 300 copies only! Be sure to get your copy if you are interested. Once you have it in your hands, we hope your spare time will allow you to sit back, put your headphones on, flip through the accompanied 16-page booklet and listen to the Dinner Show from March 27, 1975. It´s Las Vegas! It´s the Hilton Hotel Showroom! It´s ELVIS! Enjoy!

Few rooms in the music world have seen as much history as RCA’s Studio B in Nashville.  Steve Sholes, RCA’s head of Country recording since the late 1940s, had signed Elvis Presley to the label in November 1955.  Elvis’ success helped Sholes and guitarist-producer Chet Atkins to convince their bosses that RCA needed its own studio in Nashville.

Studio B opened in November 1957.  Soon thereafter, Sholes and Atkins, along with Owen Bradley and a few other Nashville producers, responded to the rock & roll insurgence by beginning to make records in a smoother, more pop-influenced style, often employing string and horn sections and background singers – not to mention an A-list of core musicians.  This so-called Nashville Sound resulted in many crossover hits and helped establish Nashville as one of the nation’s premier recording cities.     (Liner notes by Joe Krein)

Side one: I Want You, I Need You, I love You / Money Honey / I Was The One / A Fool Such As I / Ain’t That Loving You Baby / Soldier Boy / It Feels So Right

Side two: Dirty, Dirty Feeling / The Thrill Of Your Love / The Girl Next Door Went ‘Walking / Working On A Building / In Your Arms / I Want You With Me / Starting Today
