Spliced Takes – GI Blues (STAR / CMT)

Sunday, February 4th, 2018


There have been lots and lots of GI Blues releases, but this one sounds completely different, with many tracks never heard before!

A lot of work has been put into this release and it was worth it. Presented in high quality card sleeve and factory pressed CD.  It includes 12 new ‘spliced’ tracks from the 1960 recordings. This first 2018 CMT release will blow you away with lots of surprises, including rare studio material and new edits. The title track for example has been recreated out of five takes and sounds exciting and fresh. Wooden Heart has a new opening, and Frankfort Special has some funny studio snippets at the end. Big Boots was build up out of three versions (slow, medium and fast) and even Blue Suede Shoes sounds different than before (although there was only one take to work with).

Tonight is So Right for Love (Spliced takes 10 & 8) / What’s She Really Like (Spliced takes 17 & 19) / Frankfort Special (Spliced take 3, 4 & 5) / Wooden Heart (Alternate Intro Version) / GI Blues (Spliced takes 2 ,6, pu10, 7 & pu9) /
Pocketful Of Rainbows (Spliced Take 1 & 3) / Shoppin’ Around (Spliced Takes 4, 2 & 5) / Big Boots (‘Trilogy’ version) / Didja Ever (Spliced Take 1, 2 & 1) / Blue Suede Shoes (Spliced master) / Doin’ The Best I Can (Spliced Takes 10 & 12) /
Tonight Is All Right For Love (Spliced takes 5A & 5B).
