The Complete '56 Radio Recorders Sessions

Elvis One presents 'The Complete '56 Radio Recorders Sessions' on CD. A lot of these sessions are lost. For this release we wanted a different approach. The first 13 tracks are the original single and album masters with the original fade-outs. 

The same masters can be heard in the masters and outtakes section but now slightly longer taken from the master tape. When you compare the ending of the original album master of ‘Long Tall Sally’ with the ‘rough ending’ master you will notice the difference. The ending of take 18 of ‘Playing For Keeps’ and insert take 2 of ‘Too Much’ were used for the spliced masters of these songs. We have chosen to release these recordings separately. You can hear all known masters and outtakes from Elvis at Radio Recorders in 1956 on this album.

Original Single & Album Masters:

Playing For Keeps - Love Me - How Do You Think I Feel - How’s The World Treating You - When My Blue Moon Turns To Gold Again - Long Tall Sally - Old Shep - Paralyzed - Too Much - Anyplace Is Paradise - Ready Teddy - First In Line - Rip It Up

Masters & Outtakes:

Old Shep (Take 5) - Playing For Keeps (Ending Take 18) - Too Much (Insert Take 2) - Too Much (Take 12) - Long Tall Sally (Master Take 4) - How Do You Think I Feel (Master Take 7) - Love Me (Master Take 9) - How’s The World Treating You (Master Take 7) - When My Blue Moon Turns To Gold Again (Master Take 10) - Paralyzed (Master / Composite Of Take 12 & Insert Take 5) - Anyplace Is Paradise (Master Take 12) - First In Line (Master Take 27) - Ready Teddy (Master Take 12) - Old Shep (Master Take 1) - Rip It Up (Take 10) - Rip It Up (Take 11 - 13) - Rip It Up (Take 14) - Rip It Up (Take 15) - Rip It Up (Take 16) - Rip It Up (Take 17) - Rip It Up (Take 18) - Rip It Up (Master Take 19).


Summer '61

Elvis One presents 'Summer '61'. This album is a celebration of the 60th anniversary of the June and July 1961 sessions at RCA Studio B in Nashville, Tennessee.
