November 19 - Back On Track For A 3D Christmas

How to make old mono recordings sound like they were recorded yesterday, while keeping the integrity of the orirginal recording intact. You would think that this is impossible, but thanks to the latest technologies in audio development, this is now a reality. You will not believe your own ears. It's like these 50+ year-old recordings are coming alive again. You will be placed in the studio together with the singer and the musicians, right in the center of where it all happens. You will hear details you never noticed before. You will get a whole new appreciation for these classic recordings.

We have played some recordings to industry insiders, and they were stunned. They simply could not believe that these were not newly-made recordings. One of the industry movers and shakers told us, "This re-recording sounds great!". He simply could not believe it that this was, in fact, the original recording and that nothing had been added. The 3DM technology breathes new life into old mono recordings, giving them a new lease of life, and thus making them accessible for coming generations. The 3DM technology is a real industry game-changer.

For promotion of this new technology, we decided to use "Elvis Presley’ Christmas Album” as our first project. This album was quite controversial, and highly successful, when it was released in 1957. The album showcases Presley at the peak of his abilities, singing classic songs with great warmth and sincerity, while others are performed in the raunchy rock & roll and bluesy style that he was known for.

Believe us, "Santa Claus Is Back In Town" never sounded this powerful! When he sings that he is coming in his big black Cadillac, you better believe it! Elvis Presley is the first artist to be used for promotion of the new 3DM technology. Our first release is essentially made for promotion of the new technology to the music industry, but we have allowed a very small amount of CDs to be made available to the fanbase. The best new technology and the greatest recording artist of all time join hands... and the results will surprise you.

We will do a similar, very limited edition release on the Million Dollar Quartet shortly. This one will place you inside Sun studio on that monumental day, standing next to Carl, Elvis and Jerry... The way this session has come alive is quite a revelation. For the discerning Elvis fans, and audio lovers... This new release of “Elvis Presley’ Christmas Album” will bring you the same excitement that it generated upon its original release in 1957. The album sounds so fresh and vibrant, so alive.... The 3DM technology has finally brought out what Elvis and the musicians wanted you to hear. It will give you a whole new appreciation of what was achieved in the studio back them. Elvis Is Back ... Like Never Before. It will be an Elvis Christmas you won’t forget!

Santa Claus Is Back In Town – White Christmas – Here Comes Santa Claus (Right Down Santa Claus Lane) – I’ll Be Home For Christmas – Blue Christmas – Santa Bring My Baby Back (To Me) – Oh Little Town Of Bethlehem – Silent Night – (There’ll Be) Peace In The Valley (For Me) – I Believe – Take My Hand, Precious Lord – It Is No Secret (What God Can Do)

Back On Track


Expected soon is the new CD titled ”Back On Track" from the E.P. Collector import label. It contains the concert recorded live from the audience in Johnson City, TN, March 18th, 1976. It was the 1st tour of 1976 and some of Elvis’ regular musicians were replaced. The result was a surprisingly fresh, experimental sound, with keyboards and drums more prominent. Elvis performs a solid and entertaining show. Among the concert highlights are ”Let Me Be There”, ”Tryin’ To Get To You”, ”Hawaiian Wedding Song”, the second live performance of ”Hurt”, the national anthem ”America”, ”It’s Now Or Never” and “Burning Love”. Compared with the previously released St. Louis, March 22nd, 1976 tour closer (E.P. Collector, EPC 2013-01) lasting just about 52 minutes, March 17th was perhaps the longest show of the tour with a much stronger setlist, running nearly 80 minutes! As usual, this is a previously unreleased concert, taken from a recently found 1st generation copy of an original audience recorded master cassette tape. For the very first time, this show is available in remarkably good audience recorded sound … and complete! Sonically, this is one of the best audience recordings out there - ask for samples!

The CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipak with cool images taken on March 18, 1976 in Johnson City.
