April 19 - Spliced Charts

The spliced takes import series continues. A new 'fifties' album entitled 'Spliced Takes - Blue Moon' will be out soon. The 30 track set comes in a 'deluxe digipack' and is strictly 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. Get ready to Shake, Rattle and Roll with this fantastic release, some highlights include:
  • That's All Right: Spliced from 2 outtakes, with added echo to re-create the master version. 
  • Shake Rattle And Roll: Includes ALL verses done by our man, 3 different solos, piano, guitar and drums will blow you away! 
  • Let Me; The “master” of this song was also a splice created from take 3 and 4… here they used the same takes, only the opposite parts, so this is the first complete new outtake of this movie song. 
  • Money Honey: Only a shore part of take 10 was found, used here to make a nice new track, spliced with the master takes. 
  • Baby, I Don't Care: Great version, with spliced takes, and new mix to make it and outstanding new outtake. 
  • Blueberry Hill: five takes used here to make a very fresh new 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!
