HIS SONGS OF PRAISE, VOLUME TWO




Libro con copertina rigida di 352 pagine, secondo volume dedicato alla musica Sacra cantata da Elvis.
In allegato troviamo un CD che ci fa ascoltare numerose versione alternative, ovviamente di canzoni Gospel), ma nulla di inedito se non il programma radiofonico andato in onda il 3 dicembre 1967, noto come "Season gretings from Elvis" (ma le canzoni, ovviamente, sono masters).
Da segnalare un paio di errori nelle note: "Padre" è segnato come undibbed master ma, in realtà, è il master con sovraincisioni, mentre "You'll never walk alone" è denominata extended master quando, in realtà, è la seconda take..

LAS VEGAS ’74



Doppio CD in confezione digipack del formato di 7" che si apre in tre pannelli, che ci fa ascoltare il dinner ed il midnight show di Las Vegas, 20 agosto 1974.
Dopo lo stravolgimento della scaletta eseguito nello spettacolo d'apertura del giorno prima, Elvis ritorna quasi al suo classico spettacolo, anche se sono incluse interessanti novità per chi lo ascoltava in quel periodo.
Ovviamente, essendo due concerti registrati durante la stessa serata, le due tracklists sono pressoche identiche ma, a mio parere, si tratta di un'ottima (ed inusuale) scelta della FTD.
