Elvis worked hard during this last Tahoe season in spite has not been an impressive vision He fought very hard to deliver a good show. The choice of songs was more varied with respect to the regular tour and the intimate showroom seemed to inspire Elvis to deliver longer and more solid shows. 

The 05th May evening show here presented doesn’t make an exception Elvis delivered 18 solid songs reaching the top with the bluesy Trying to get to you, the anthem America, and the very sensitive Hawaiian Wedding Song, at the same time in spite of the poor shape He still able to perform rockers like the classic Polk Salad Annie and overall the fast Burning Love.

Tampa Wave - Millbranch Music

 Tampa Wave - Millbranch Music


Millbranch Music is back with its second release in 2022! After the overwhelming success of our recent CD & DVD set “From Sea To Shining Sea” we were able to obtain more new and great 8mm footage plus a first generation audience recording from Elvis´ April 1975 tour!

“Tampa Wave” is a 2-disc set: The CD includes Elvis´ full performance of the evening show in Tampa, Florida (April 26, 1975), taken from the original tape which has been recorded by a by then “experienced” fan who had a great seat in the 5th row - and his recording equipment with him! 

For our last two releases we have worked strictly with soundboard recordings, but since the Tampa show we got the original tape of is really a very good audience recording with a lot of information regarding the excitement of the crowd in the rather small building Elvis played in (7.500 in attendance), we decided to work with it on our brandnew project. After all, Elvis-Fans would miss a lot if there were no audience recordings - some of them sound probably even better than quite a few “dry” sounding SB´s - but that will always stay a matter of audible taste of course.

The DVD in our new set has a running time of almost 100 (!!) minutes and includes rare and high-quality 8mm-footage of the Tampa evening show from April 26, 1975 (the same as you can hear on the CD) and more impressions from the same tour with the concerts in Lakeland, FL (Evening show from April 27 and the show from April 28) and Atlanta from May 1st. 

As a very special bonus the DVD contains an absolutely stunning performance from Elvis´ concert in Richfield, filmed at his magnificent July 75´ tour (July 18). The quality and length of the material we invested a lot of money in recently will blow you away! You will get 53 (!!) minutes from this show which is almost 80% of the whole performance.

Especially in the last two years, there have been a lot of releases which have shown some great 8mm footage on DVD. We appreciate this development because it makes it possible for fans to get a good look at what Elvis Presley concerts were like all through the 1970s and not only at the time-frames of TTWII, Elvis On Tour, Aloha From Hawaii and Elvis In Concert, where Elvis-Fans can watch professional material of for many years already. 

In the last couple of years more and more of the old private film-reels which seem to have remained hidden since the 1970´s showed up - reels that have been copied over and over and later put on rather bad video cassettes which have also been copied and copied over and over again, losing so much information with each ongoing copy. Nowadays, it is possible to work with those reels from back then, getting great results in terms of picture quality (at least in quite big parts) so we can see Elvis in all its glory on almost every tour and every Las Vegas engagement he did and taste a bit of the excitement from way back 45+ years ago.

Tracklist:

01 -  Also Sprach Zarathustra
02 -  See See Rider
03 -  I Got A Woman / Amen
04 -  Dialogue
05 -  Love Me

Live Experience In Vegas February 1971

 Live Experience In Vegas February 1971 


Publicity stated: Not even half a year had passed since Presley’s triumphant summer festival in bright light city, during which a good part was filmed for the upcoming documentary 
‘That’s The Way It Is’. In the meantime, two highly successful and thrilling short tours, 
the first ones since 1957, brought the legendary performer back to many fans’ 
doorsteps all across the nation. 

Coming back to Las Vegas for his fourth month-long run in the short time span of only 
one and a half years, it became apparent to the close observer that the Memphis singer 
was bored already. Too lazy to care much about an updated repertoire, 
all the audience got was a rehash of his earlier appearances with two exceptions.

Most shows, partially due to the star catching the flu, ran only about half as long as during the previous engagement and some closed with a new song – The Impossible Dream – 
a beautiful Mitch Leigh composition from the tony award winning 1965 musical 
The Man Of La Mancha. 

To be fair, we have to say that even with some shows only running around 35 to 40 minutes , Elvis , as bored as he might have been at times, infused them with a good deal of his humor and vocal power, still leaving the audience in awe. It might be of interest to the serious 
Presley scholar that it was during this engagement that a new orchestral theme 
was inaugurated. The resounding horns of Richard Strauss’ Also Sprach Zarathustra 
would from now on herald the arrival of the King to the concert stage. 

If you want to relive the magic and excitement of Elvis in Las Vegas, this superbly packaged and good sounding album is your invitation to the showroom of the International Hotel. 
Enjoy the show.

Tracklisting:

01. That’s All Right
02. I Got A woman
03. Jailhouse Rock

Well, It's Christmas Time Pretty Baby: Songs Of Christmas - Radio Recorders

 Well, It's Christmas Time Pretty Baby: Songs Of Christmas - Radio Recorders


Elvis' fourth studio album was released in October 1957 and was titled "Elvis' Christmas Album". The album was a very clever move by Elvis' record company. Probably the Colonel also had his (big) part in this commercial masterpiece. The foldout sleeve contained a full sized 12 page booklet containing some very handsome pictures shot during the filming of "Jailhouse Rock". So this album was really something for everybody. According to the Record Industry Association Of America the album along with its reissues is the best selling Christmas album of all time. All original new tracks were recorded at the Radio Recorders studio in Hollywood .

Radio recorders™ brings you a fully packed CD containing 27 masters & alternate tracks from the sessions plus bonus tracks. Some highlights are the outtakes of "peace in the valley" & "it is no secret" taken from the original binaural tapes, these include some nice studio banter and are not released before in this quality.  Previous releases offered a very weak sound for these.

All recordings on this compact disc are carefully restored and remastered. They never sounded better, it’s like you are right there in the studio.

01. Santa Claus Is Back In Town
02. White Christmas

Blowin´ In The Wind - Reel-Trax

 Blowin´ In The Wind -  Reel-Trax


Reel-Trax proudly presents: ‘Blowin´ In The Wind’ – twenty-one really great tracks that will blow you away! Remasters, remixes, new edits plus a selection of original recordings that will offer you a totally new listening experience.

 ‘Blowin´ In The Wind’ offers you songs like the home recording of ‘Fools Rush In’ that now almost sounds like a crystal clear studio recording. Also revealed on this album for the first time is that what is noted on the ‘From Elvis In Nashville’ Boxset as a jam version of ‘Mystery Train’, could actually very well be a slower version of ‘See See Rider’. The next to last song is the unique live recording of ‘Where No One Stands Alone’. This version now comes with new overdubs in a similar vein as ‘Unchained Melody’. This and much more is to be discovered on this great new album on the Reel-Trax label. An entirely new listening experience.

Let´s go deeper into some essential tracks of the CD: Fools Rush In: This record gets kicked off with the Frank Sinatra inspired arrangement of ''Fools Rush In'', Nelson Riddle and his Orchestra accompanied Sinatra on his 1960 recording. Elvis is singing to the 1959 Album '''Sing A Song With Riddle'' and does the same for ''It's A Sin To Tell A Lie''. Both versions are unique and one can only imagine what it would have sounded like if Elvis had done these in a studio with these arrangements. 

Similarly, Elvis also sings with a different record featuring instrumentals this time - ''Sing A Song With The Kingston Trio''. However, this does not actually feature the group but is rather a tribute to the group's music and has instrumental recreations of their hits. Elvis and his group of friends decided to sing to ''500 Miles'' and ''Blowin´ In The Wind'', these songs are now newly mixed for optimum sound quality, blending the home recording with the actual recording from the record. 

''Beyond The Reef'' is the overdubbed master and conveys the same feeling as the other songs on this CD. It is the rejected single master. While the song ''Almost'' was a studio recording, Elvis´ lonesome and weary vocal combined with touching piano playing makes for a fine addition to the classical feel of this record. 

''What Now My Love'' can almost be considered a totally different song, with none of the later bombastic arrangement. We have Elvis and his group singing along to some fun piano playing in a more uptempo beat as opposed to the dramatic version that would later be one of the highlights on his ''Aloha From Hawaii'' record, while ''Suppose'' was a test recording for an Elvis session. It was later decided to use the home recording vocal for the eventual master which was overdubbed. Here we have a undubbed version. 

''Tennessee Waltz'' is a re-created version, which has been overdubbed and re-edited. The reason for this is because the whole song gets spoiled by Elvis laughing and joking and we tried to make a much more serious version here – listen to the result! 

''See See Rider'' is another imagining of what could have been. When released in 2020 on ''From Elvis In Nashville'', it was wrongly listed as ''Mystery Train''. If you pay attention and listen closely, you can obviously hear it's ''See See Rider'' and the proof is right here, as a Live Vocal was mixed onto the instrumental. This is the closest to a 1970 studio version you will find. ''Don't Cry Daddy'' and ''In The Ghetto'' are both special overdubbed versions showing more of the beauty of Elvis his vocal.
