September 14 - Spliced CD

After their first release “Hollywood” the CMT import-label announced the second CD "Nashville" containing 30 newly created edits of Elvis Presley's songs. The set comes in a “Deluxe Digipack” and is limited to 500 copies.

From the press-release:
Again the STAR team has done all the edits on this album, and they did an even better job , with lots of excellent edits, and surprises. Unlike other “import” labels, they truly were able to produce an album using many incomplete takes, to create beautiful new tracks. Their professional edits will blow you away, and will make you believe these are unreleased takes. 

Just listen to the amazing alternate master of “Ain’t That Loving You Baby” re-created from scratch including 17 (!!) splices, this brings you the version used on the 1984 “Reconsider Baby” album, in much better remastered sound. 
“Fever” is presented with longer intro and great splices creating a whole new outtake! “Guitar Man” is spliced 5 (!) times and also has a new “What’d I Say” ending. “U.S. Male” has an unusual extra verse included which didn’t make it to the record “You son of a b…” 
Another highlight must be “I Gotta Know” with alternate Jordanaires backing. “I Need Your Love Tonight” has an additional guitar solo, and the alternate “I’m Yours” also includes the spoken version.

Elvis fans have been spoiled over the years, and they all know “the end is near” almost every complete take available has been released, so this is as close as you can get for a “new” album!
