There's talk on another forum of a possible new Elvis 30CD-Box Set due to be released in December. I would welcome this collection because I need ALOHA in DSD remastered form plus many other titles in the Elvis collection:
AN AFTERNOON IN THE GARDEN, AS RECORDED AT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN, AS RECORDED LIVE ON STAGE IN MEMPHIS [EXPANDED]
ON STAGE, THAT'S THE WAY IT IS 3-CD [EXPANDED] PROMISED LAND,
TODAY, RAISED ON ROCK, LOVE LETTER'S, ELVIS NOW, and the classic ELVIS COUNTRY [I WAS BORN 10,000 YEARS AGO] just to name a few.
Many of these fantastic CDs are in need of remastering especially AN AFTERNOON IN THE GARDEN and AS RECORDED AT MSG from 72.'
Maybe they could add the alternate ALOHA concert too, that would be a superb addition to the collection and one of my own favourite's - a real cracker! With one of the best versions of "FEVER" I've ever heard.
However,many of these are available on the FTD label as special editions but it would still be great to have the original albums - especially if the whole package was well thought out and presented.
It would be absolutely fantastic to hear all of the King's songs in the best possible sound,what about T.R.O.U.B.L.E from TODAY - I played an old piano from a nine to a half past one, trying to make a livin watching everbody else having fun. Rocking and fantastic!
And what about the awesome "Pieces Of My Life".
I could go on and on.The title track from PROMISED LAND,"Polk Salad Annie" from ON STAGE plus all the great songs on ELVIS NOW/LOVE LETTERS would sound stunning in DSD - and the not so well known;
"When I'm Over You", "Cindy Cindy" ,"Heart Of Rome" and 'Life" [Love Letters From Elvis.] And the fantastic and underrated 'We Can Make The Morning" From ELVIS NOW.
In conclusion, the price will be a big factor but I hope the box set will include, all my favourites and yours.I hope this is going to be a real winner from SONY/BMG so we can all get rocking with the King.
