October 21 - Follow The Backdraft Christmas Spirit

The Backdraft import label released 'On Stage - The Ultimate Edition'. 


From the press-release:
Due to high public demand, Backdraft has released this week, ‘On Stage - The Ultimate Edition’. Because of the fast sell-out of ‘Rebooked at the International’ many fans missed out and were left out. Therefore this release will have only the stereo multi track recordings from the ‘Rebooked’ release containing the very best on this factory pressed 80 minute CD. The CD is housed in a professional looking digi-Pack with a 12 page booklet, containing the very best of the photographs plus more from the Jan/Feb 1970 engagement. This release is limited to only 750 units worldwide and is available now from your local Elvis dealer.

But, with the release of this new edition it appears that the factory has produced CDRs in the digi-sleeves and not the factory pressed discs it promised. The people behind this release have released an apology and do state that a replacement factory pressed CD is to be distributed FREE by your local supplier.


The apology states: "Apology to all fans from Backdraft, for the major cock up on the disc, this was done beyond our control, and was not noticed until fans started receiving the package, once it was brought to our attention we immediately put into action getting the CDRs replaced with proper factory pressed discs as what was originally ordered by us."
