Whom knew , That's RCA/FTD works, I See releases In past Was to release On Some dates or Years, WAsn't release or they have put on back burner for years.
Liked Standing Room Only, that's Was Can because Of MSG Shows, and The
stuff for it slowing be release in pieces past 35 years . I hope that the New Release In April Sure Call Standing Room Only not An American Trilogy
i liked both Names.
We got too much Sun songs out there. only one or two Songs I like From The Sun Sessions One Is Mystery Train And Baby, Let's Play House.

Check out our interview with FTD's Kevan Budd..
EIN - So what's next for you?
KB ? A single track - the 'Heartbreak Hotel' 1955 demo, this I restored for the new 'Writing for the King' (http://www.elvisinfonet.com/interview_ken_sharp.html) set. This was the only track I restored for the set and this nearly didn?t make it! On first listen to the raw transfer it was thought to be in much too bad a shape to be saved as the acetate record was virtually destroyed, however after the restoration was finished, it was decided that it would be usable after all. This was a relief as it was pretty neat to finally be able to compare what Elvis received and heard in late 1955 with the classic hit that he recorded in January 1956.
Other than this there are several new projects in the pipeline that I am working on for the near future which I hope to give more details on as they draw closer to release, and off course there will be the FTD 'Sun box-set'.
EIN - Can you give us any details of what might be in the Sun release?
KB - A general overview of the FTD `Sun box set` is that it will include a good amount of unreleased material, including studio sessions (everything we have in the vaults), live recordings (newly restored) including amongst others, the unreleased Meridian, May 1955 performance where Bill goes crazy and Elvis is really rocking! Plus interviews, demos, radio ads and off course the odd surprise! The book section is a massive project, including such items as the first known colour photo of Elvis in 1954 to unpublished Sun session tape notes and off course many, many more unseen goodies! The set is now in its final stages of completion.
