    I like this release - interesting choice of songs. Like everybody else I'm disappointed that once again SONY have fallen short on the distribution side - are they even really interested in Elvis anymore??

    Im sure they are. I think that SONY are concentrating on the Viva Elvis release. Brian could probably confirm or deny this.

    I can confirm that 'Viva Elvis' will be one of the biggest releases of the year by ANY artist. SONY are going to give it the FULL treatment.

    If that collection is the best British writers can muster, then I'm not highly impressed. It would have been better to reduce it to a singe CD best of.

    Not wishing to go off topic but as you asked. The definitive list of tracks has not yet been finalised but the 'Viva Elvis' Show contains the following songs:

    Blue Suede Shoes
    Don't Be Cruel
    Too Much
    One Night
    All Shook Up (female only)
    Saved
    Got A Lot of Livin To Do/Shake Rattle & Roll
    Heartbreak Hotel
    Love Me Tender(Duet)
    Didja Ever
    Return To Sender
    Are You Lonesome Tonight(Duet)
    Medley: Mystery Train/Let's Play House/I Don't Care If The Sun Don't Shine/Tryin To Get To You/Baby What You Want Me to Do/Tiger Man.
    Burning Love
    Bossa Nova Baby
    King Creole(Duet)
    Jailhouse Rock
    It's Now Or Never
    Can't Help Falling In Love
    Love Me/Don't (Duet)
    Viva Las Vegas
    Suspicious Minds (live version)
    Hound Dog (70's version).

    Further there will be at least two single releases which may not necessarily come from the album as 46 tracks were recorded at the session.

    The tracks have been remixed with state of the art sound and up to date backings. Release date is now either September/October.

    I hope you are correct-but even if Sony gives it the FULL treatment-time will tell if it is indeed one of the biggest releases by any artist this year.
    I have my doubts only because Viva Elvis has seemed to be trouble laden since the beginning-the reviews were a mixed lot, and they are still tinkering with the show. We will see when the release hits stores.
    Work in Progress!
