Red West Dead At 80



Red West died at the ages of 80 on July 18, just a few weeks after his cousin Sonny.
In November he would have turned 81.
Red is known for his friendship with Elvis to us, but also as songwriter (Separate Ways, If Every Day Was Like Christmas being the most famous) and actor (Roadhouse).


RIP...

LABEL: SR Records [nessun numero indicato].
AUDIO: ***
NOTE: audience recording del dinner show del 19 agosto 1973 a Las Vegas.

2) See See Rider
3) I Got A Woman / Amen
4) Love Me

THAT’S THE WAY IT WAS-That’s the way it is rehearsals




DATA DI PUBBLICAZIONE: maggio 2017.
LABEL: Rock & Roll Majesty [RRM-70].
AUDIO: *****
NOTE: siamo alle solite... Quando c'è di mezzo questa label si tratta semplicemente di una mera copia del lavoro altrui...
Stavolta è stato taroccato il recente cofanetto (dicembre 2015) dedicato alla raccolta organica delle prove per "Elvis-That's the way it is".
Uno può dire: "eh, ma qua abbiamo anche tre DVD !".
Sì, ma copiati da quelli emessi in "That's the way it is-The complete works" nel 2009...
Buono solo per chi, due anni fa, si era perso il primo box.


WARNING:
this box (8 CD's and 3 DVD's) features the same songs of THIS ONE.
DVD's are already available on several bootlegs.


Many thanks to Samuel.

ELVIS IN CONCERT "NO COMMENTS"



DATA DI PUBBLICAZIONE: giugno 2017.
LABEL: CMT [nessun numero indicato].
AUDIO: *****
NOTE: CD dedicato al bistrattato album della RCA "Elvis in concert".
Lodevole tentativo della "Star" (sotto le spoglie della "CMT"), ma non essendo in possesso dei nastri originali, il tutto si riduce ad un (piacevole) CD alternativo distante dalla realtà.
Le tracce non sono nel loro ordine cronologico dell'esibizione (come, invece, era stato fatto in "The CBS concert recordings") anche se sul suono non c'è nulla da eccepire.
Come si evince dal titolo, sono stati tagliati i commenti dei fans, presenti nell'album originale del 1977 e nelle edizioni relative dei CD ufficiali.
La tiratura è limitata a 500 copie.


CANZONI:
le tracce senza asterisco provengono da Rapid City, South Dakota, 21 gugno 1977.
Quelle con l'asterisco da Omaha, Nebraska, 19 giugno 1977.
01) Also Sprach Zarathustra
02) See See Rider
03) That's All Right (Mama)
04) Are You Lonesome Tonight?
05) Teddy Bear / Don't Be Cruel *
06) You Gave Me A Mountain
07) Jailhouse Rock
08) How Great Thou Art *
09) I Really Don't Want To Know
10) Elvis Introduces His Father
11) Hurt
12) Hound Dog
13) My Way
14) Can't Help Falling In Love / Closing Riff *
15) I Got A Woman / Amen
16) Elvis Talks
17) Love Me
18) If You Love Me (Let Me Know)
19) O Sole Mio (Sherrill Nielsen) / It's Now Or Never
20) Trying To Get To You
21) Hawaiian Wedding Song
22) Fairytale *
23) Little Sister *
24) Early Mornin' Rain
25) What'd I Say
26) Johnny B. Goode
27) And I Love You So *

Bonus tracks:
28) Blue Suede Shoes
29) Mystery Train / Tiger Man
30) Little Darlin'
31) Help Me
32) Unchained Melody





Many thanks to Danny Fisher.

TEE VEE TREASURES - '68 COMEBACK SPECIAL



DATA DI PUBBLICAZIONE: giugno 2017.
LABEL: nessuna etichetta e numero indicati.
AUDIO: *****
NOTE: bellissimo cofanetto di 5 CD dedicato al "TV Special" del giugno 1968.
Precisiamo che di inedito c'è solo quello che riguarda gli annunci commerciali della Singer nel CD 5; in questi anni è stato emesso di tutto e di più riguardo queste sessions quindi avere degli inediti (se mai ne esistano ancora) è, a mio modesto parere, pura utopia.
Questo box, comunque, fa la sua gran bella figura nelle nostre collezioni: il cofanetto è della dimensione di un LP, i CD hanno il loro jewel case ed abbiamo un bel libretto.
Se consideriamo tutte le sciocchezze che emettono "quelli della casa madre", direi che questo acquisto sia "doveroso".
Come in tutti questi prodotti, la tiratura è molto limitata.

PACKING THE ARENA



DATA DI PUBBLICAZIONE: giugno 2017.
LABEL: MxF Records [nessun numero indicato].
AUDIO: ***
NOTE: doppio CD che ci fa ascoltare altrettante audience recordings ma... precedentemente emesse da altri bootleggers ed in resa sonora migliore...
Il primo dischetto riporta lo spettacolo pomeridiano del 25 aprile 1976 a Long Beach, Caifornia (edito in "A brand new Cadillac, honey!" qualche mese prima) mentre il secondo, quello serale, emesso già in "California wave".
La confezione è in digipack della misura di 20x20 cm con libretto di 16 pagine. È presente anche un poster della dimensione di 40x30 cm (anzi: sono stati stampati quattro diversi posters...) ed una copia di un quotidiano, di 20x40 cm. Tutte le copie sono numerate a mano.
Emissione, quindi, indicata ai collezionisti davvero incalliti...
Nota personale: l'annuncio pubblicitario dichiarava che il suono era migliorato; io capisco che un annuncio pubblicitario deve ovviamente fare vendere un prodotto ma sfido chiunque non sia sordo a sostenere che il sound di questo doppio CD sia migliorato rispetto alle vecchie emissioni... La "MxF" (che è poi sempre la "SR Records") dovrebbe badare più al sodo che ai fronzoli (please, see "Straight Arrow" releases !!!).



CANZONI.
