July 01 - Spliced Takes Nashville Revisited

Another volume in the 'Spliced Takes' series has been announced by the STAR / CMT import label entitled 'Spliced Takes Nashville Revisited'. They created more 'new' tracks with newly spliced takes. 

From the press-release:

Another "must have" release in this great series, this time even more edits / splices were done to make an exceptional album, where tracks sound so much different then what is out there, no fake overdubs, but some tracks have been overdubed, using snippets from the actual "recording sessions" 

Devil In Disguise for example does not fade out, but has a great new ending, including two guitar solos. 

Gold In The Mountains has been overdubbed with a more fuller drumbeat on some parts, and has been extended. 
Like A Baby "you do the intro" Elvis said during the session, but here, we have Elvis himself playing it, and on the end, the guitar has been included once more.
Dirty, Dirty Feeling sounds so much different since lots of parts from the session have been included, and it's Elvis who does the ending "Gone..." instead of Ray Walker.
Stranger In The Crowd , no complete outtake of this song excists, here we get an extended "rehearsal" version, which sound wonderful
It Ain't No Big Thing,  again our man does the intro, and a very different version is made.
I'll Never Know here outtakes are combined with the master overdubs.
On the first "Nashville" most tracks were from the sixties. Here we get a good portion of seventies selections, and well as a fifties track, all recorded in Nashville.
