To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

I get the message "Only available for subscribers" when I click on the link. I'm a big fan of Elvis's 1969-1972 live period.

I can see it and I'm no subscriber  Huh
But this link seems to be for Europe. Can you find it through the US-site of the Commercial Appeal?

Just saw this new trailer for Ken Burns' "Country music" (check out the Country-thread on this forum for more about that) and realized that it features yet unreleased 8mm footage of Elvis. Click here at ca.  0:19-0:20 mins.

I've become obsessed with Elvis in the last month. I think he was the greatest. Some albums I've been playing:

- Elvis at Sun
- Elvis Presley
- Elvis
- Loving You
- Elvis' Golden Records
- For LP Fans Only
- A Date with Elvis
- Elvis (1968 live album)
- From Elvis in Memphis
Lots more to discover. Enjoy the ride!  Cool Guy

1969 was a pivotal year for Elvis Presley. Fresh from the success of the ’68 Comeback Special, a revitalized Elvis headed to American Sound Studios with producer Chips Moman and a crack group of local session musicians. From these sessions came From Elvis In Memphis, one of the most beloved LPs of his career, plus the seminal hits “Suspicious Minds” (his 18th and final No. 1 hit) and “In The Ghetto.” American Sound Sessions 1969, available for the first time on vinyl, features rare and unreleased outtakes from these legendary sessions.

Side A: 1. “Long Black Limousine (Take 6)” 2. “Wearin' That Loved On Look (Takes 12, 13 & 14)” 3. “You'll Think Of Me (Take 16)” 4. “I'm Movin' On (Take 2 - with vocal replacements and steel guitar overdub)” 5. “A Little Bit Of Green (Take 1)”
Side B: 1. “In The Ghetto (Take 1)” 2. “From A Jack To A King (Takes 1-3)” 3. “Without Love (There Is Nothing)(Take 1” 4. “I'll Be There (Takes 1-3)” 5. “Suspicious Minds (Take Cool(undubbed master)”
Side C: 1. “Stranger In My Hometown - Jam (undubbed)” 2. “It's My Way/This Time/I Can't Stop Loving You – Jam” 3. “True Love Travels On A Gravel Road (Take 2)” 4. “Power Of My Love (Take 1)” 5. “After Loving You (Take 2)”
Side D: 1. “Do You Know Who I Am? (Take 4)” 2. “Kentucky Rain (Take Cool” 3. “Only The Strong Survive (Take 29)” 4. “It Keeps Right On A Hurtin' (Takes 1 & 2)” 5. “Any Day Now (Takes 1 & 2)”

And more news about the movie:

New Elvis Presley movie starring Tom Hanks to be filmed on the Gold Coast

Hollywood legend Tom Hanks will star in a new Baz Luhrmann movie about the life of Elvis Presley to be filmed on the Gold Coast.

The dual-Oscar winner will play Presley's lifelong manager Colonel Tom Parker, but who'll play The King of rock 'n' roll is yet to be revealed.

"The role of Elvis will be filled after a worldwide search to be overseen by Baz Luhrmann," Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk told parliament.


She said the production would inject more than $105 million into the local economy, and generate 900 jobs in areas including set construction, catering and costume design.

The Warner Bros. Pictures film will be shot at the Village Roadshow studios on the Gold Coast, and follows a recent meeting between the premier and Luhrmann in London.

It will explore Presley's rise to fame with a focus on his complicated relationship with his manager.

I just heard that Sony Legacy will release a new vinyl version of "50.000.000 Elvis Fans Can't Be Wrong" - the second volume of the "Gold Records" series - in January 2020. So for every collector and everyone who wants to get into Elvis' music, this should be interesting. It's one helluva album!




I Need Your Love Tonight    
Don't    
Wear My Ring Around Your Neck    
My Wish Came True    
I Got Stung    
One Night    
A Big Hunk O' Love    
I Beg Of You    
(Now And Then There's) A Fool Such As I    
Doncha' Think It's Time



IIRC the wrong version of "Doncha' think it's time" was used, which differed from the single version.

I hope they will add a few bonus tracks - it's a very short album as it is.
