Follow That Dream Records - Classic Reissue Releases

Here is the latest update on the Follow That Dream release classic reissue series. The series continues with ?Elvis is Back!? (Release Date: March 1, 2005) and ?Today? (Release Date: April 1, 2005) 1/6/2005

In addition to its regular quarterly releases of collectors? material, Follow That Dream Records regularly reissues Elvis movie soundtrack albums and classic Elvis albums that are no longer part of the mainstream Sony/BMG (RCA Records label) catalog. Next in their series of ?classic album? reissues are the 1960 album Elvis Is Back! (Release Date: March 1, 2005) and the 1975 album Today (Release Date: April 1, 2005).

FTD Records will release a 2-CD version of Elvis is Back! in the customary 7? format. There is a very limited number of previously unreleased outtakes on the studio albums, hence the 2CD solution ? combining all previously released versions ? masters and outtakes.

Today will receive the same treatment. Since many of the studio albums have been deleted by SONY/BMG, it?s FTD?s mission to make sure that the material is still available, in order to keep Elvis?s recorded legacy intact.

Following are the track listings for both albums:

I can't wait to hear the unheard outtakes, and I'm equally excited about the newly mixed masters (if done right, I believe the difference will be remarkable) on Today! We've been wanting this one for some time.(y)
