March 26 - Lightning Strikes Like There’s No Tomorrow

The Straight Arrow import- label announced their first release of 2019, titled “Strike Like Lightning” containing the previously unreleased recording of the August 8, 1969 Midnight Show performance. In 2019, the Straight Arrow team will focus their 2019 releases on the concert years 1969-1972.

From the press-release:
We are aware of the fact that we have released 1974-1977 Elvis concerts of late. These releases were appreciated by the hardcore fans, but we strongly felt that the time had come for a change. On the 50th anniversary of Elvis' fantastic comeback in 1969, we are now able to release a tape that captures the electricity of that event. Until now, we had not released any 1969 live shows before, simply because most live tapes from that year are poor quality. Imagine our excitement when we got hold of a good sounding tape of a sensational gig from that magical year!
The August 8th, 1969 M/S is a previously unreleased recording, taken from a newly found audience recorded master-tape. This concert was never available in good sound quality thus far. There is a CDR with a so-called August 5, 1969 Midnight Show in circulation, which is the same concert, taken from an xxx-generation copy, but wrongly dated and in far inferior audio quality. Original cassette paperwork proves that this concert is definitely the August 8th, 1969 M/S!

As a small bonus, we have decided to add 4 tracks, recorded during the August 27th, 1969 D/S. Two of these tracks were released by the “Victrola” label on their conceptual 3CD album “Flesh, Blood and Bone” but these were never before available in decent sound quality, before now.

As usual, this release is presented in a deluxe 6-panel digipack, with a collection of photos taken in Las Vegas, NV, August 1969. Most of the photos were taken by Ann Moses, editor of Tiger Beat Magazine. Dig the psychedelic, period perfect artwork! As for the concert itself... wow, just wow! Elvis is groovy, sexy, earthy, charismatic, funny... And singing with real fire in his belly, never really heard again after this. Pure greatness.

It’s a new Straight Arrow so you know what to expect! Every second was digitally restored, every click manually removed, every drop-out fixed to achieve optimal listening pleasure. Ask your local dealer for samples to judge for yourself!

There’s no Tomorrow

The SR import-label announced the release of “There’s no Tomorrow” containing the previously unreleased August 10, 1973 Midnight Show performance, taken from the original high-quality tape.

From the press-release:
To be released in the middle of April, There’s no Tomorrow (SR Records) will focus on Elvis’ August 1973 Vegas season, featuring the midnight show from August 10, 1973, previously unreleased and taken directly from the original high-quality tape. 


The SR attitude is to present Elvis at the peak of his possibility and without any doubt Elvis’ first week in Vegas August season still presents him at the top of his possibilities, delivering great shows. If Rock is an attitude, then the man still has it. The performances are terrific, rough and sharp.
Elvis’ tolerance for Vegas has reached its limit in this season and the man will do nothing to hide it. But the beginning of the season is certainly promising and in this show in particular his enthusiasm shines through in every note. Elvis performs all the songs to the maximum of his possibilities, also pushing the band and giving the right time and presenting all the best of his repertoire ranging in all musical genres as only he can do.

We are happy to be able to associate great performance with great audio quality in order to be able to obtain a result that you can enjoy too. The ambiance tape is of very good quality, as you can appreciate both Elvis and the band and at the same time you can feel and live the live atmosphere of the intimate Las Vegas Showroom. The show has already said is great, starting from his latest single Steamroller Blues then with autobiographical You Gave a Mountain & My Boy then with the anthem An American Trilogy passing the best single of 1969, Suspicious Minds without forgetting the glorious fifties with Heartbreak Hotel and Mystery Train…. All the songs are very well performed. The Best song We can say I Can’t Stop Loving You: both Elvis and the band are pushing strong with a great job of James Burton guitar.

This new SR special Product will be housed in a deluxe 300 grams single sleeve that contains the 150 grams vinyl, a bonus CD and bonus glossy 30x30 cm double sided art card.

In order to create a special collector’s item, the 400 copies will come in four different vinyl color variations with a glossy sticker. Besides the 400 “standard” copies there is an additional limited edition set of 50 copies with exclusive content.

March 22 - Friday Bootleg Vinyl Chart (Updated 25/03)

The Friday Music label re-issued the classic “Elvis Now” album on vinyl. It comes in two anniversary versions; translucent gold and red swirl and translucent blue and black swirl 180 Gr. Audiophile vinyl. Both packed in a gatefold and poster. 

Synopsis:
Elvis Presley's Gold-certified 1972 RCA release, Elvis Now is home to the single "Until It's Time for You to Go" b/w "We Can Make The Morning" and finds the King offering up a wide-ranging mix of ballads, gospel numbers and all out rockers with his Las Vegas residency firmly in mind. Lennon-McCartney, Kris Kristofferson, Gordon Lightfoot and Buffy Sainte-Marie are among the famous songwriters Elvis tackles here with his signature charm and conviction.

Vegas ’69 - This Is The Story

The first vinyl release of the Madison import-label is out; “Vegas ’69 - This Is The Story”, just in time for the 50th anniversary of these special shows. This is a limited edition that comes on transparant, gold, black and red vinyl and on a CD as a bonus. Each color limited to 200 copies. 

According to the press-release “the ultimate compilation of this very special time in history, Mixed as one long show, hear Elvis sing his heart out, with songs like "My Babe", "I Got A Woman", "Reconsider Baby", "Funny How Time Slips Away", "This Is The Story" and many more!”. As a bonus each set contains a CD in its own period cardboard sleeve.

Guaranteed To Blow Your Mind

The Luxor / DAE import label present “Guaranteed To Blow Your Mind” the re-issue of the classic bootleg as a double vinyl / CD set. 

From the press-release
The CD “Guaranteed To Blow Your Mind”, originally released in the late 90’s was the very first outing of the famous March 18, 1974 performance in Richmond Virginia. At the time it was probably the best sounding soundboard recording available. And it still is!
 
Luxor realizes the show was made available on vinyl before but as this is probably the best show of Elvis in 1974 we thought it just cannot be missed in the vinyl series of DAE / LUXOR. We have left out the pre-show as this part was already featured on the DAE release “Let Me Take You Home”.

The show is remastered and updated in the best way possible! This release is very limited and is available in red or blue vinyl presented in a gatefold sleeve. And of course the show is included on CD too. Get it while you can and add this awesome LUXOR product to your collection.

Priscilla Presley Responds To Funeral Planning Reports

Priscilla Presley has responded to reports that have claimed that the former wife of the late Elvis Presley has planned her own funeral and has recently made all the appropriate instructions to be buried at Graceland next to Elvis.

Priscilla Presley posted on Thursday via her personal Twitter account that the recent reports regarding her funeral plans are completely bogus and in fact, she has no plans what-so-ever to be buried next to Elvis.

Recent Radar Online posts stated that Priscilla, 73, reached out to Graceland’s trustees and all the plans were finalized revealing that the final resting place plans were a done deal.

This is the Enquirer folks… please don’t believe everything you read. Don’t plan my funeral just yet, I’m very healthy. Never planned on being buried next to Elvis. What will they come up with next!? 🤣

“Priscilla still thinks of herself as Elvis’ widow and her rightful resting place is next to him,” a source told Radar Online.

The same source even went as far as to say that Priscilla wants an “elaborate funeral” and when her time comes she wants all of Elvis’ music to be played and to be completely surrounded by photos of herself and Elvis.

It is also claimed that Priscilla previously underwent a complicated surgery removing deadly skin cancer from her face. The ordeal allegedly got Cilla thinking about tying up all her loose ends and ironing out her last wishes.

“Priscilla feels that she played a defining role in Elvis’ life and that he was her only true love,” the insider said, adding, “Even though they divorced
four years before his death in 1977, she believes they shared a loving bond until the day he died — and beyond the grave.”

However, Priscilla is calling this total BS and feels she has a lot of living to do yet. As previously reported Priscilla Presley’s 2019 total net worth is somewhere around $100 million while her and Elvis‘ only daughter Lisa Marie Presley is next to nothing.

A lot of Elvis’ dedicated fans have been pretty upset by the financial circumstances concerning Lisa Marie and all the legal and personal battles she has been undergoing for the past few years following her divorce proceedings from her fourth husband Michael Lockwood.

They reportedly believe that Elvis’ baby girl should in no way be suffering financially while ex-wife Priscilla Presley continues to rake in a massive yearly income all of these years later riding on her famous husband’s namesake.
