    Here are the pictures of the front and back covers as well!

    I'm actually surprised that FTD is putting out another book/CD combo like this, especially since they are deleting the ones they've already released. I didn't think the book/CD combos were selling as well because of the much higher prices on them.

    TCB!

    Re: King Creole new FTD Book – plus new vinyl release forthcoming

    It looks like a winner to me! It's great to have the visual aspect that a book gives.

    Now, I wonder what the new FTD vinyl will be:

    RAISED ON ROCK?

    GOOD TIMES?

    TODAY?

    ELVIS SINGS MEMPHIS TENNESSEE?

    Or, ON TOUR maybe?

    THIS IS A RIP OFF!!!

    NOTHING NEW!


    Not even 1 new alternate take. The people at FTD are all swindlers.
    $150 for nothing new? Do they think that we are fools?

    Now I wouldn't say FTD are swindlers but 150 dollars for nothing new, I guess if you are fortunate enough financially then i'd say its good. But not really.
