Elvis – The Fool Album (Vinyl)


Follow That Dream (FTD) is please to announce the release of Elvis – The Fool Album.

Originally released in July 1973, this album’s track listing changed dramatically from RCA’s internal documents circulated just one month before. Here for the first time, Disc 1 features the LP sequenced as ORIGINALLY PLANNED. The LP artwork also replicates the original draft layout before it was amended. Disc 2 includes outtakes from the sessions that contributed to the album. Highlights include the rare fully-orchestrated version of Fool and the 11-minute+ version of Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right.
