The earlier announced Straight Arrow import CD releases “Adios Lincoln” and “Rattling Plates, Aces'n'Eights” are now out!
The vinyl re-issue of “That’s The Way It Is” was re-issued by the Music On Vinyl label.
Follow That Error
The latest Follow That Dream release "The Best Of British - The RCA Years" contains an error. The CD-label should read "The RCA Years" but actually reads "The HMV years".
The promotional blurb for the recent FTD book 'Best Of British – The RCA Years 1957-1958' noted in part, "This is Elvis, with the continuation of the British story now detailing his RCA releases from 1957 - 1958. The CD included with this book features many first-time officially released Elvis tracks. Here, amongst his classic songs, are the songwriters’ demo recordings as Elvis first heard them, plus the message he recorded on his home answer machine!" Unfortunately it has now been revealed that Elvis' answering-machine message is a fake, edited together from The Truth About Me interview outtakes of August 22 1956. It isn't an answer phone message at all!.
The label of the "Elvis For Everyone" CD contains a strange track. It reads "Forgive me Never'' instead of ''Forget Me Never''.
Young Man With The Big Beat
The budget re-issue of the box-set "Young Man With The Big Beat" has been released by Sony Legacy.
