39 alternate takes from the movie soundtrack album, songwriter demos, radio spots and more!

All official unreleased outtakes of the ‘Spinout’ soundtrack collected on one CD plus songwriter demos and all four original radio spots for the movie, and all remastered for the best sound quality.

Including a 12-pages booklet with photos and recording information. The sketches used for the artwork of this album are original continuity sketches from the MGM production Spinout.

Please note that on releases like the boxset Stop, Look and Listen – The Ultimate Spinout Recording Sessions a lot of material is missing like the complete Take 7 of Stop, Look And Listen, Take 6 of Never Say Yes, the 2nd screaming girls version of Down In The Alley, studio chat and radio spots. If you have the FTD version of the album Spinout then this CD from Elvis One is the ultimate addition to your collection.

Track 1, 13, 14 & 15 previously unreleased on CD. Taken from the original 33 1/3 RPM 10 inch LP with four Radio Commercials for the movie Spinout. Radio Spot Announcements were used to promote new and upcoming movies. They were not released by RCA Victor but by the movie company. These radio spot announcements were not archived by radio stations and were typically destroyed.
