In 2005, the FTD label released the album Elvis Is Back! as a 2-CD set in the 7 "format. Elvis just returned from the military, entered studio B in Nashville to record a load of new songs. The challenge was huge. For an artist's career, it kills for months out of the business It was 2 years for Elvis ... The colonel might have played it smart enough to release some vinyls during those two years, but still, Elvis could make it back into the music world that had changed so much? Elvis was once again surrounded by excellent musicians. During this session many songs were recorded, which are still regarded as the absolute top of the world today: It's Now Or Never, Stuck On You, Fame And Fortune, A Mess Of Blues and just about thé best Elvis song of all time Are You Lonsome Tonight ?.
On this release you will find the mastertakes of the original album, supplemented with the songs that are not on the album Elvis Is Back! , but were released as an individual single. Also on CD 1 the first takes of a series of songs. On CD 2 even more outtakes from the March session and April session. All this gives you a beautiful picture of the way in which all these songs were created. Included is a booklet with many photos and of course a lot of information about recording dates etc.
Essential release!
