September 07 - A Tinseltown Troubadour Died (Updated)

The Lauderdale Records import label announced the release of the CD 'Tinseltown Troubadour'. 

From the press release: 'Tinseltown Troubadour vol. 1 and 2' are two new releases with a difference. Both offer a wild 'n' crazy joyride through Elvis' movie years, in a fresh and exciting new way. 

Both CDs contain 30+ tracks, with each CD containing an 80-minute blast of movie versions, studio outtakes and alternative mixes, as well as rare promo spots and memorable movie dialogue. Everything has been freshly edited and mixed in glorious mono, and you’ll notice right away that these songs sound way groovier this way. 

There are surprises a’ plenty on these releases, including a cleverly edited version of 'Angel' that begins solo, but then slowly turns into a full band version, as well as a truly gorgeous 'As Long As I Have You'. And remember, all the elements used are original.

Packaged in beautiful digipacks with rare color pix they promise two  smooth-groovin', fast-movin', hip-shakin', shagadelic collections of Elvis Movie Magic that you just gotta have! "That ain’t cheap tactics, honey. It’s just the beast in me".
