AndILoveYouSo

Limited edition – Factory Pressed NTSC DVD

STAR has managed to get their hands on some incredible footage UNRELEASED worldwide in this quality! Other video releases containing amateur footage, usually are out of synch, to slow/fast and very VERY bad edits.

Be sure to check out the link for the official trailer:

https://youtu.be/inAZP92jFQk

STAR delivers an almost complete show from 1976 with a running time of 56 minutes, including 17 COMPLETE performances.

No skips and bumps, so you can enjoy the King as you should

Most of the footage with MATCHING audio has been taken from March 17th 1976 during his performance in Johnson City, backed up with “help” from other shows from the same tour.

This “Opening Night” show for 1976 shows Elvis in a very good mood and shape, lots of interaction is going on with the audience, and you are with them during this great show

Due to the fact that not everything has been filmed, clever edits are used to keep the show going without annoying breaks and even some extra songs were used to make it work even better

A great result of this has to be the March 22nd version (St. Louis) of “Let Me Be There”, which has some amazing close ups!

But there’s more!

We get the very first live version of “Hurt”, a rocking “Polk Salad Annie” and “Burning Love”, and a rare live version of the title track “And I Love You So” where Elvis stops for a while since he doesn’t approve the bands performance. You constantly feel the energy from Elvis working with his new band, and the Crowd

Next to the complete songs we also get all the band solos. Hear Larry Londin for the first time during an Elvis show, see James Burton making an encore by Elvis’ request, and enjoy the Joe Guercio Orchestra doing a fine “Hail Hail Rock and Roll”

As a bonus, some rare tracks from the CBS tapes are included

Strictly limited to 500 worldwide, so need your orders NOW!!!

A Whole Lotta Power Going On

Wednesday, July 15th, 2020

star_power

Deluxe Digipack factory pressed 2xCD set

Over 2.5 hours of incredible cuts!

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Elvis June/September recordings in Nashville. Whereas other labels only re-re (re) release the same over and over, CMT continues their ‘Power’ series with this third instalment. After last year’s “Ghetto Power” and the first release “Stax Power”, this release had to be done and might be the best one yet!

Again, the editing on this album makes all songs ‘blend in’ so you will get the feeling as if you are in the actual session, with lots of rare snippets and surprises

All tracks from the Nashville 1970 sessions have been included on this set, with clever spliced takes for a whole new listening experience

Lots of works went into this release, and a lot of the tracks sound so different that you almost think that they are all brand new!

Because the producers wanted something really new, and wanted to start rocking from scratch, they decided not to give you a chronicle order tracklist, like the previous volumes

Just listen to the incredible new spliced version of “Patch It Up” (10!! splices), extended versions of “There Goes My Everything”, “Bridge Over Troubled Water”, and clever edits of Undubbed tracks with final masters like “Little Cabin on the Hill” and “Heart of Rome”

1970 has to be one of the best years for Elvis… you can hear it… you can SEE it, although we do agree with the “Never judge a book (CD or DVD) by it’s cover” expression, seeing this cover makes you want it even more, and it sure has ‘A Whole Lotta Power Going On!’
