Only recently we received beautiful releases by FTD, and new titles are announced immediately. This time the 4-CD set The Elvis Is Back Sessions and this book / CD set The Making Of Viva Las Vegas. In this set the 400-page hardcover book with the fascinating story of how this beautiful film from 1964 came about. More than 250 newly discovered photos of clothing, memos, contracts, soundtrack details, recording schedule etc .... This film not only had a good story, beautiful location and pretty good songs, but also the actress Ann-Margret. Elvis was not blind to that. All this led to a great result. In addition to this book, this release also includes a 3 CD set. On this set the original soundtrack in mono, bonus songs from the soundtrack and newly discovered demos from the songwriters. The format will be the same as the set Boy From Tupelo from a few years ago : 30,5 cm x 30,5 cm x 5 cm. All this packed in a luxury slipcase.
