New 2008 CD.
A new CD with a 14 Jan 2008 release date from the Xtra music label. 2007 saw a plethora of Elvis 1956 "public domain" CDs swamping the market. Can we expect 2008 to bring us the same number of 1957 re-releases? The publicity states "Original recording remastered" but what is their source material as they certainly don't have the studio Master tapes. If it is BMG's recent Kevan Budd re-issues (ie the 'Loving You' FTD) then there could be troubles ahead as the UK public domain issue heads into legal murkiness.
The laugh is of course that their CD is NOT by any means "The Complete 1957 Recordings" as the Christmas Album songs are missing along with tracks like 'Is It So Strange', 'One Night' etc plus 'How Do You Think I Feel?' and 'Hows The World Treating You?' were 1956 songs.
