September 06 - Spliced Takes Still in Memphis

The CMT import-label announced the next volume in their "Spliced Takes" series entitled "Spliced Takes: "Still in Memphis". This volume is another cooperation with the producers from the STAR import label. 

From the press-release:

Fans know what to expect with this series, some highlights are mentioned here, but in fact the whole CD is one big highlight. This one won't leave your player before Christmas. Details on the tracks:
  • Way Down - Starts of with the band fooling around, Elvis joins the fun and it runs straight into the song! 
  • Wearin' That Loved On Look - Over six splices make a very different version, with extra verses and piano solo. 
  • I'm Movin' On - This splice includes all verses done by Elvis , and runs longer then other versions. Same goes for "Hey Jude", which also sound very fresh. 
  • She Thinks I Still Care - One of the highlights probably, Here Elvis start of with the slower version, James takes over and off they go into the faster version, this works very good, and maybe should have been released like this! 
  • Good Time Charlie's Lost His Mind - The title was renamed for fun, and that's what we are getting here, a nice complete take with lots of fooling around. 
  • Suspicious Minds - What's a "Memphis" release without this classic, because some rare parts are used, this one again sound very different to previous releases outtakes. 
  • Do You Know Who I Am - Just listen to the "harmony" ending, very nice to hear two different sounding Elvis voices.
